Matfen Hall wedding photography
Oh what an amazing wedding this was! I know John from our old school days many years ago in County Durham and after 16 years of not seeing each other we got re-acquainted when he got in touch and enquired about me doing the Matfen Hall wedding photography for his big day where he would marry his beautiful bride Katie. There was no way I was going to pass up the opportunity to be a part of this wedding and jumped at the chance.
This is the first of my 2 Matfen Hall wedding photography shoots this month and it is such a stunning venue, certainly one of those places that has that ‘wow’ factor with the Great Hall being a real show piece for the wedding which Katie and John used for their ceremony and also some of the party later that night. I stuck around for the night do and enjoyed capturing the guests dancing away to the excellent singer the couple had hired for the reception.
I see a lot of couples tying the knot but this one was even more special than usual as both bride and groom were a little emotional and due to me having a connection with them already it made me feel a bit emotional too… that was until the best man (also an old school friend) did his absolutely hilarious speech that involved the masks often used by Keith Lemon on Celebrity Juice. I actually had to try and blank out what he was saying as I was shaking from laughter which was making taking photos quite difficult 😀
The grounds at the venue are perfect for Matfen Hall wedding photography and as we had a cold crisp day it meant we could use them to great effect for the more personal bride and groom shots, and although there was a brief shower during the ceremony it stayed dry until late in the evening which was just perfect for getting those important romantic shots before the sun went down.
Katie and John are such a great match and I know they’ll have a lifetime of happiness together, and I’m glad I got to share something as special as their wedding day with them. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Foster!
