Daarlington Wedding

Ian & Sarah's Wedding // The Croft Hotel, Darlington

Ian and Sarah were married on what was without a doubt the hottest day of the year so far. Beautiful sunshine greeted me as I arrived to photograph a very chilled out Ian, his best man and ushers. Not only sunshine but so many friendly faces - I felt instantly at home, even if the first thing I had to witness was a mad scramble to escort a rather large spider to it's new home.. outside the house!

Ian and Sarah's wedding was supported by the fabulous charity Gift of a Wedding, who I have had the great pleasure of supporting since early 2015. Gift of a Wedding organise weddings for those whose lives are shortened by illness, and my photography was a donation to Ian and Sarah.

The whole day was fabulous from the very beginning; from the very personal celebrant-lead ceremony, to a dance to music from The Greatest Showman, organised by the Best Man Matt, and executed to precision by other members of the wedding party and guests. It was so lovely to see the reaction of Ian and Sarah, who had absolutely no idea it was going to happen.

Ian and Sarah it was an absolute pleasure to play a small part in your day, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me feel so welcome.
