Claire and Jamie are great fun people and I met with them at their mum's about a year before we met again at the pre-wedding portrait session we arranged at the beach.

A pre-wedding portrait meeting is so much more than taking photographs - it gives us time to chat and talk about the forthcoming wedding and bond a little .. so that we're not strangers on the day of the wedding. So that instead of: "Ohh, the photographer's here ... ", it's more like: "Great, Dirk's here - let's get the wedding started!"

Their wedding was at a beautiful old church on the sea front at Seaton Carew near Hartlepool - Holy Trinity, before we all headed off to Redworth Hall Hotel, west of Darlington - a lovely venue for a beautiful wedding.

Luckily, Claire is cool calm and collected and when I went to meet with her and her family and bridesmaids at home everything was tranquil, so I managed to get a few key photographs from the start of her day, before meeting with Jamie at the church - he is just the most relaxed guy ever!

They both wanted what I do best - to document and capture their wedding celebration as naturally and as unobtrusively as possible - showing all the laughter and the fun of the day!

Once at Redworth Hall, there was plenty of time for canapes and champagne on the lawn - and for a few casual, relaxed, happy family shots of mum's and dads with grandchildren and close family friends. No hassle, no stress, just relaxed and quick and FUN !

The wedding breakfast was really nice (thank you!) and the speeches entertaining and full of laughter and tears.

Luckily it was still light, so I had an opportunity to take Claire and Jamie into the grounds for ten minutes, catch some fresh air and finally get some photographs of them on their own - she looked so good in her Paloma Blanca wedding dress!

Before long, it was first dance time (or first shuffle as it often is!) and the entertainment and dancing was going great guns as I headed off home into the late setting sun.

A great day for Claire and Jamie - relaxed, fun and a wonderful day of celebration to mark the first day of the rest of their life together!
