Lina & Greg ~ New Hall Hotel
Picture it….. That perfect picture postcard… A white wedding in every sense of the word. So many Christmas wedding couples dream of having snow for their big day, unfortunately the weather is the one thing we can’t control but for Lina & Greg, their dream most certainly did come true!!! And not just a little dusting… A proper thick blanket of perfect beautiful snow! Ok, I won’t lie, I was a little nervous the day before when the majority of the roads were closed with even more forecast for overnight but when we woke on Monday 11th December to such a stunning day, luck was on our side and this was one wedding that will stay fresh in my mind forever! I have photographed a few weddings in snow before but in my 21 years of photographing weddings I have never been lucky enough to have quite so much of the fluffy white stuff and such a glorious day.
Lina & Greg had a very small intimate wedding at the stunning New Hall Hotel, just 14 guests and the happy couple themselves, they also didn’t want anything to be too traditional. On the day Greg came to Lina’s door to escort her to their wedding prior to meeting with the registrars, they had drinks with their families before the ceremony and then walked hand in hand together down the aisle. It was a lovely ceremony, with heartfelt readings and lots of laughter. After the nuptials we started our photography session and I was so excited, I cannot express how gorgeous the grounds of New Hall looked, how lucky was I to have a wedding there with it looking so marvellous! Lina & Greg are very outdoorsy and were up for anything and everything, as I say they didn’t want anything too traditional…. so we had fun sledging in the snow, picture’s with the most amazing snowman, Olaf (Lina’s favourite Disney character), dancing in the snowflakes and even the guests had snowball fights. I was so proud of the happy couple as it was pretty cold and poor Lina’s toes were frozen! But she braved it and it was so worth it. Finally back inside the warmth of New Hall we photographed them with their nearest and dearest before finishing off with some photographs cutting the cake, which Lina had cleverly made herself! Photographing in these conditions is far more difficult than people realise and I am really happy with the beautiful selection of photographs Lina & Greg have to cherish forever! Thank you so much Greg & Goat for asking us to photograph your very special day… it was amazing 🙂 We wish you both a very happy and long life together.
A big thank you to Des and all his staff at New Hall for another wonderful wedding… I hope you love these pictures as much as I do ♥
