Hollie + Aidan

Hallgarth Manor
wedding photographer.

A gorgeous wedding at Hallgarth Manor in Durham. Hollie + Aidan are complete legends. Such a lovely couple and all their friends and family were ace. They married at a church close to home which must be one of the biggest I’ve been In. It had plenty of room to move around and get various angles which was pretty cool.

Afterwards everyone jumped on the cool London red bus, now thats a great way of getting everyone to the venue; Hallgarth Manor.

Hallgarth Manor Is beautiful situated near the heart of Durham and sports some great features such as a very large garden and several rooms.

They held their reception in the very large Mirrorball Room and the spinning glitter mirror ball is a great feature during the reception. Nice touch.

During the day there was so many fun moments and I absolutely loved every minute. Being a recommended supplier at Hallgarth is awesome and I know the whole team and the venue very very well.

Here are some of my favourite moments from Hollie + Aidan’s wedding at the Hallgarth Manor – Durham

We booked Ray as our wedding photographer on 16th June 2018. What a guy!! He was very relaxed which rubbed off on us during a manic day. Ray was very amenable and not demanding at all, he rolled with whatever we wanted. He is a very friendly chap!! Ray went above and beyond on our special day. He stayed long after the time he should have in order to capture some great shots as the sun was setting. Hundreds of pictures were taken by Ray but he had all of the edited shots to us in a matter of days…great service. We would definitely recommend Ray.
