The details

The happy couple:

Sophie and Michael

The date:

21st July 2017

The location:

South Causey Inn (Barn), County Durham

Sophie and Michael initially booked with us to film their wedding, but after seeing our creative approach, decided to add the photography to their package.

It was our first time photographing (and filming) at the recently opened barn at the South Causey Inn. Completely renovated and catering solely for weddings, it provided the perfect backdrop for a rustic wedding.

Both Sophie and Michael were getting ready at the venue in two of their many themed rooms. With so much to work with at the South Causey Inn, we were keen to get started.

It's all in the details. It was clear that Sophie had thought long and hard about the little touches but Jake (their dog) was the star of the morning.
After finishing touches in makeup, it was time for Sophie to put her dress on and reveal herself to her bridal party.
The new barn was the perfect setting, although Sophie's mam Diane nearly burnt the place down during their candle ceremony.
Outside it was time to organise a confetti shot. We did a few group photographs and then the guests were left to mingle, eat canapés and watch Chris Cross the award winning magician.
The speeches were a nice mix of emotion and humour. Diane stepped in for Sophie's step dad Andy who is no longer with us and gave a great speech. She even found time to present Michael with this fabulous t shirt which we're sure he'll wear again and again.
Michael stole the show with his speech. Be sure to check out Sophie and Michael's wedding video but you can see from the images here it was a funny affair.
As guests settled into the evening, we headed out to do some couple photographs before leaving Sophie and Michael to enjoy their first dance as the new Mr and Mrs Beckham.
