Matfen Hall Wedding

Laurence Sweeney Photography - North East Wedding Photographer

Douglas and Rebecca were married at Maften Hall in October 2018. They had a wonderful wedding day with family travelling from Scotland and the North East of England.  We met up with Rebecca and Kirsty, her maid of honour and then journeyed up to Matfen to finish off the wedding preparations.

Matfen Hall is a 19th Century Manor House and contains stunning interiors and bedrooms. Douglas and his father enjoyed a stroll around the grounds prior to the ceremony.

Their ceremony was held in the Great Hall. The day was filled with laughter and smiles. We were blessed with lovely Autumnal colours and the weather held off despite the forecast.

Most photographers have the same aim as myself, which is to delight their clients and it should go without saying that they would want to produce images that are personal, stylish and emotive.

I love seeing people’s reactions when they view their wedding photographs for the first time, but it is just as important to ensure that it will become a joyous feeling for years to come.

Every wedding is special and every one I shoot is an honour to be a part of. There will be opportunities to be creatively bold and daring, and there will be times when simplicity should be the main driver. I will bring with me a bag of ideas, with space for new ones supplied by you, the client.

I love to create a set of pictures that tell the story of a wonderful wedding, evoke the magic of the day and capture the happiness it brings.
