Chris & Shazia

Jamie and Audrey were recommended to us by a mutual friend who works in the wedding industry. As someone with the privilege of seeing a lot of wedding photographers, she felt we’d be a great fit for the couple who were looking for someone friendly and laid back like us.

They were getting married at Bowburn Hall in Durham. It’s a lovely, little venue that we’ve visited before and always offers a fantastic day.

We’d really clicked with Audrey and Jamie so we were really looking forward to photographing their big day. It was the first wedding of 2020 for us, so we picked up our bags and headed out…


Where the wedding name came from:

The name was chosen because of Audrey’s amazing red Dr Martens boots.

Both Audrey and Jamie were getting ready at the venue, so Chris headed over to Jamie's room where things were nice and relaxed.
We just loved the outside of the cabin and it made for some great images of Jamie and Cameron in their suits.
Over in the main hotel, Audrey and the girls were having a great time with Shazia.
Audrey took it up a notch as she pulled out her amazing Dr Marten boots. We love a bride who wears Dr Martens!!
Downstairs the ceremony room looked like a fairytale. It was simply incredible and the event stylist and florist did a fantastic job.
Once guests were seated, Audrey made her way downstairs. I think there were a few last minute nerves creeping in for Jamie.
They made such a lovely couple and you could tell they loved each other. Happy smiles all around.
They sealed a perfect ceremony with a perfect kiss before making their exit underneath a plume of confetti.
Outside, we whipped through the family photographs and even had some guests doing everything possible to keep their shoes off the grass.
Back inside, the guitarist and the guests were all singing and having a great time.
We quickly snuck the newlyweds off for five minutes to grab some photos of them together. It's always nice to grab a quick moment to yourselves.
We made use of all the cool little visuals, including this awesome truck situated in the garden.
They both looked amazing and Audrey's bouquet and head crown really set everything off. Simply stunning.
Back inside spirits were high as guests gathered in their seats ready for the speeches.
Audrey and Jamie made their way in to a grand bagpipe entrance.
After the ceremony guests had fun in the photobooth and before we knew it, it was time for the first dance.
They literally are the perfect couple and after their beautiful first dance together, their friends joined them on the dancefloor to get the party started.
