Alnwick Gardens wedding | Chris and Rebecca

Chris and Rebecca’s wedding saw me heading up the A1 to Alnwick Gardens where I photographed last May. After having fun during their recent pre-wedding shoot I was really looking forward to this intimate and unusual wedding in Alnwick gardens. The rain was torrential the entire day but it never threatened to dampen their day.

For her bridal preparations, Rebecca was staying in a remote cottage 20 minutes away from Alnwick across desolate single track roads. A nice relaxed morning with her family whilst getting ready in such peaceful surroundings. It was soon time for me to jump in the car and renegotiate the twisty single track roads to Alnwick gardens where Chris and their guests were waiting.

Chris and Rebecca had an unusual ceremony that included a slide show! And had written their own vows.

Due to the weather, we stayed inside most of the day but took advantage of a dry spell later in the day after the wedding breakfast and speeches.

Chris is a keen photographer himself and wanted to spend a little extra time on their fashion wedding photos which I was happy to oblige.
