Did you know that Wynyard Hall is one of a few venues in the UK to have its own on-site chapel? This is just one of the many reasons why Rebecca and Peter chose this setting to celebrate their wedding. “We had both always wanted to be married in Church. The Chapel at Wynyard Hall is absolutely breathtaking and we loved the idea of being able to flow straight into our drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening celebrations.”
Although the couple live in Scotland, the pair knew they wanted to return to the North East as it was important to them to be surrounded by their close friends and family. “We both live in Scotland and wanted to return to the North East of England for our wedding day. It was important to us that all of our close friends and family could attend.
“We looked at many venues during our engagement from Scotland to England, even as far as Italy! What drew us to Wynyard Hall was being able to return to the North East and the grandness of Wynyard Hall and its grounds. I would absolutely recommend Wynyard Hall to future brides.”
The couple chose RGMphoto to captured their special day. “Our photographer was recommended by friends who had hired Ross of RGMphoto for their wedding. They showed us their wedding album and we loved his style of photography. We are so pleased with our choice as he was a massive calming influence on the day and really knew his stuff.”
Advice for other brides and grooms?
“Be as organised as you can (Peter took this to the extreme with spreadsheets and seating charts). Budget well in advance and try to stay within this. Be as clear as you can with each other about what you both would like out of the wedding day and finally do what makes you happy.”
What was your highlight of the day?
“How do you chose! My Godfather, who is a minister, flew from Cincinnati, Ohio, to conduct part of our wedding ceremony. This was very special for Peter and I as it really added a personal touch. We were joined in our first dance by a Butterfly that decided to land in my hair. Our photographer and videographers were excited to have caught the moment on camera! Peter and I got to spend some time in private while getting photographed in the grounds. It was so nice being able to stand back for a moment and look at all of our guests enjoying our day. Finally I can’t go without mentioning Ellie Sax who gave a great performance and had everyone up on the dancefloor throughout the night.”
