Northumberland Country House Wedding
Abi + Sean’s Northumberland Country House Wedding happened on the most sunniest Bank Holiday Sunday’s we have ever seen (thank you British weather!) at Ellingham Hall in Northumberland.
When we arrived we couldn’t believe how stunning this venue was. We had talked to Abi + Sean on many occasions about the venue and how beautiful it was but we were blown away when we arrived.
Wedding Weekend in Northumberland
Abi + Sean wanted their wedding to be a weekend of celebrations with their friends and family rather than just the day so they hired Ellingham Hall from the Fri-Mon and were married on the Sunday in the house’s beautiful chapel. On Friday/Saturday all their friends and family celebrated by playing garden games, eating, drinking and in general having a weekend full of fun!
When we arrived Sean was bouncing about in his dressing gown like Hugh Hefner only replacing the Playboy bunnies with some hairy groomsmen! He was dead excited and this was also the same for Abi when we popped into the room downstairs to see her and the girls.
Jimmy Choo Wedding Shoes
After everyone was ready and the Jimmy Choo’s were slipped on (we had to mention those Abi!) we all headed downstairs to the chapel.
As soon as the music started for Abi’s entrance Sean’s emotions sky rocketed and the tears began. Not only for Sean but so many people at the wedding and this continued throughout the day. It was a beautiful ceremony with lots of laughs, tears and emotion.
After the ceremony everyone spilled out into the glorious sunshine and onto the terrace where they covered Abi + Sean in a tonne of confetti before eating the delicious canapés and drinking good fizz.
Into the evening once the speeches had been completed and the room was being prepared for the evening reception we escaped in our car with A+S and headed out to the nearest field to catch golden hour. A+S had no hesitation about heading into the field and spending time together while we took pictures of them.
Once we arrived back at Ellingham Hall Abi + Sean surprised all their guests with a routine first dance. What these cheeky two had done and not told anyone else was they had secret dancing lessons. It was a total surprise to everyone! (Not us we were in on their little secret).
Abi + Sean we want to say a HUGE Thank you for having us along to shoot your Northumberland Country House Wedding. It was an absolute pleasure. We were made to feel part of your clan from start to finish and we can’t wait to hang out with you guys again soon!
Here are a selection of our favourites from the day…..
