Jess + matt

Hardwick Hall
wedding photographer.

It was my absolute privilege to capture Jess and Matt’s wedding at Hardwick Hall. Their wedding was to be held in the new Hardwick Hall Floral Chapel which is really nice. The wedding was up in the air somewhat with all the Covid restrictions and the certainty of whether it would go ahead or not was not 100%. Jess and Matt pruned their numbers down to just 25 of their closest family and friends and the day felt every bit as special as a full scale wedding.

The ceremony was just perfect in the new floral chapel which provides a lovely backdrop with the large stone fireplace. Jess was walked down the aisle by her dad, which i know was a real touching moment for him. His face during the first look in the bridal suite was amazing, such a proud father.

Thank you so much for having me document your story. I loved every minute of your day and it was so nice to meet your friends and family who were all amazing, friendly, welcoming and cool. Cannot wait to meet again and create more breath taking Images on your Adventure Wedding session In the Isle of Skye.

Here are some of my favourite moments from Jess + Matt’s wedding at Hardwick Hall – Durham
