As soon as Leanne and Andrew saw Wynyard Hall they knew instantly that this was where they were going say those special vows. A breathtaking entrance, grand décor and a magnificent terrace overlooking the river – what more could they want?
“The chapel was an added bonus as we knew we wanted to keep the wedding traditional and get married in a church or chapel, so this sealed the deal for us,” Leanne said.
The wedding theme was ‘vintage fairytale’ and although they didn’t have a specific colour scheme they wanted to keep it clean and neutral.
Leanne’s Farage gown from The Wedding Wardrobe in Chester-Le-Street was the epitome of a fairytale. Along with her What Katie Did Next veil and personally designed headpiece made by Leigh Hetherington Bridal in Newcastle, Leanne’s look was perfected.
During the daytime an Indian flute band supplied the guests entertainment: “We had seen them perform in Durham market place and felt this would add something a little different to our wedding.” By night, guitarist and singer Neil Gibson provided the fun!
The couple’s favourite moment however was: “Our moment to ourselves when we went off in the horse and carriage around the grounds.”
Leanne and Andrew’s day was truly magical and they couldn’t have ended it better than jetting off to Florida followed by an extended honeymoon to the Bahamas.
