It’s always exciting when a new wedding photographer shares with us their work. Today’s wedding is by Lee Thirkellson; a new lifestyle and wedding photographer based in the North East. He assisted Kelly Matthews Photography on his gorgeous wedding at Derwent Manor and the images of Kayleigh and Brian are just too beautiful not to share… we’re sure you’ll all agree.
Kayleigh and Brian gathered their friends and family in the setting of Derwent Manor for an unforgettable day. The couple didn’t have a specific theme, but they loved the colour grey, which gave their day stylish and sophisticated vibes.
“I had heard about Derwent Manor off a few people and as soon as we visited the venue we booked our wedding! It was the only venue we looked at and fell in love with it. I would recommend it to other brides, it’s a beautiful place inside and out, and the staff are amazing.”
Kayleigh wore a gorgeous gown from Pasha Bridal; a sleek dress that was finished with a handful of jewels. “Pasha Bridal was the first shop I went to, my mam picked a dress and I did. I tried them both on and fell in love with the one my mam picked. I found the experience very easy. I had in mind what sort of dress I wanted and came home with something the complete opposite to what I pictured myself in. The only advice a can give is just to go into a shop with an open mind and not to be afraid to try on a style of dress that you didn’t picture yourself in.”
Advice for other brides and grooms when it comes to wedding planning?
“Just to enjoy the planning, one minute it’ss six month away the next it’s time to get married! Treasure every minute of your wedding day as its over so quick!”
What was your highlight of the day?
“The highlight was all our friends and family spending our perfect day with us and knowing that Brian and I were going to be spending the rest of our lives together with our little boy, Harrison. It was a perfect day from start to finish it was everything we dreamed of.”
