Married: 12th October 2019 Location: Middlesbrough Venue: Treebridge Hotel
I met Lauren a few days after she rung me, which was a week before her wedding, she was very emotional as you can imagine when you have just found out your photographer is no longer able to do your wedding. I was away from the office, working all day, and I was unaware of the post she had put out on Social Media, (Facebook) for help. I was tagged by a few people, which is always nice to be recommended, but I came to highly recommended to her by a guest at a wedding I had done a few months earlier (August 2019). I was so pleased to be able to move a few things round in my diary to be able to be their photographer.
The Treebridge Hotel Wedding Day
The wedding soon came, it had been a while now since I was last here, it is a lovely venue, and it was nice to be back. With Roseberry Topping in the background, the weather forecast predicting a dry day and with the sun out this was going to give us some fantastic photos, what more could we ask for in October.
I started like I do with all my weddings by taking a walk around there beautiful wedding venue The Treebridge Hotel near Great Ayton, Middlesbrough, not too far from North Yorkshire. Once I took some photos of the venue and the wedding layout and details they had put together beautifully I went off to find Lauren to start her bridal preparation coverage.
I went up to find the bridal room "Oak" and the girls where all having a great time as you can imagine which means loads of fun candid moments, I am one for details and spotted a 'FREINDS' t-shirt, which only meant one thing to me good taste!
I find 2 hours before the wedding is normally great for bridal preparations especially if the ceremony is taking place at the same location as it was for Lauren & Jaime, this means I have time to capture everything you would typically expect from a bridal preparations.
I also have to say these ladies where on fire, ready in good time so I could go find Jaime and gab a few shots of him before the ceremony too.
The Treebridge Hotel, the ceremony was in a well-lit area, with lots of natural light coming in and with the sun shining that day well let's just say this shows in the photographs.
You could see the emotion in so many people but mostly Laurens father which is so touching. They had 2 boys who were their side by side to there mum and dad.
Lauren & Jaime boys were so much fun and one, in particular, was loving the camera so much so he tried hard to get in every single shot! He was an awesome help too, I think in 10 years he could be my assistant, he was that keen.
I was given a big list for the formal photos so we did this straight after the ceremony, which went really well with the help of maid of honor gathering everyone and that help so much ( thank you) we then started on there wedding photos and capture the lovely view of Roseberry Topping in the background, I was spoilt for choice. Shortly after they had there lovely 3-course meal and speeches followed, then we had an opportunity to do a few more photos but this time with there boys. Then one thing lead to another and all of a sudden the ladies picked up Laurena and held her lengthways so being slightly worried they may not hold her too long I took some fun photos and relaxed when she was put down. The same with Jaime and we just spent 30 minutes having a fun and fantastic time where everyone was having a good time doing different things and all the pictures came out brilliantly.
I love coming back to The Treebridge Hotel it is a beautiful and popular wedding venue. If you haven't considered the tree bridge hotel it is well with a look.
If you haven’t seen much of my work yet I would describe my style as a documentary wedding photographer, I want my photos to take you back to that moment and that time and remind you how you beautiful day unfolded (as if you would forget).
