We met Andrew and Kayleigh at a wedding fair back in 2017. We’d also photographed a couple of their friends’ weddings so they were familiar with our work and our brand before meeting us. After a sit down in Starbucks, we both knew it was meant to be.

They chose the South Causey Inn Old Barn as their reception venue, with their ceremony taking place at a church in Seaham.

The weather was forecast for a mix of rain and sunshine, so taking our moments when we could get them, we headed out to start the day…

With the rain coming down, we began the day at Kayleigh's house.
Kayleigh gave out some lovely gifts to her bridal party before getting into her dress.
The weather wasn't perfect as we arrived at the church where Andy was eagerly waiting.
A lovely service took place followed by a few photographs before everyone made their way outside.
After a quick confetti shot, we all headed over to the South Causey Inn for the reception drinks and canapés.
Guests had some time to mingle and chat before a few couple photographs in front of the fire place.
We had some thoroughly entertaining speeches before the wedding breakfast was served,
After a huge downpour during the meal, the sun came out later and we managed to capture some more couple portraits of Andy and Kayleigh together. They were both so good in front of camera.
The evening began in a nice, relaxed way. Guests sat and chatted, the photobooth was open and the casino tables were hot.
To finish off the formalities, the couple had their first dance before Kayleigh's dad joined her on the dance floor for their father/daughter dance.
