Posted on: 19/08/2011

Grab your partners , for friend of the wedding blog Andrew Billington Photography has sent in this sunshine smiles, detail filled, ceilidh dancing .  And there are men in kilts.  ‘nuff said.

.

As a side note, Suhaine made all the bouquets, button holes and decorated the venue herself on the morning of her wedding…WOW! Wonder Woman or what?! She probably deserves to be putting her feet up in this first shot…

Andrew Billington Photography talks us through it: Suhaine and Malcolm got married in July at the Hexham Winter Gardens.  It was the venue that made it for me. Being a school everything had that slightly worn look which tied in perfectly with the vintagey theme of the day. I’m told the venue was a Spa Hotel at some point in it’s past and the wedding breakfast took place in what was the Solarium – beautiful wooden floors with massive windows allowing it to flood with light.  Suhaine is an event organiser in her day job and had organised the decoration of the Winter Gardens with military precision – bunting was flown, fairy lights threaded around the room to twinkle in the evening, handmade table plans and flower decorations set up.

The previous day Suhaine had been to the flower market and bought boxes of flowers so she could decorate the tables and venue – plus she spent part of the wedding morning making the button holes, bridesmaids bouquets and her own bouquet (with no signs of any panic I might add).

Suhaine and Malcolm wanted a very family orientated and relaxed wedding day which is probably why they chose me to photograph it – I like the day to flow and spend more time capturing the day as it unfolds rather than creating generic wedding images and lining people up.

People gathered for the ceremony from all over the country and once it was over had drinks on the front lawn of the school. A few formal pictures were taken of family and friends and we had the opportunity to use a beautiful Kitchen Garden that is part of the school’s learning programmes.

But it was their approach to the wedding breakfast that was really refreshing: everyone was called in to be seated and then Suhaine and Malcolm circulated for about half an hour talking to each table before the hog roast was served and a few emotion filled speeches were delivered at the end. The evening was a Ceilidh which meant everyone joined in and had a whale of a time – also negating the ‘First Dance’ fears of standing in the middle and swaying for 3 minutes whilst others look on!

    I love this real wedding. The venue, the details, the dress…and I would love to film a wedding with a Ceilidh! Our friends did that at their wedding and it got everyone up, just amazing! x
