Rockliffe Hall Wedding story of the day

Rockliffe Hall believe every wedding should be different and is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and their unique setting, relaxed atmosphere, understated grandeur, and choice of venues, together with a dedicated team ensure your wedding day is truly individual. It could be an intimate ceremony for half a dozen friends in the elegant Morning Room, or a grand occasion for 200 guests in the Rockliffe Suite.

Elizabeth and Wayne had an intimate family wedding for just 21 people at the Rockliffe Suite and I was there to capture some great images from their day.

Elizabeth and Wayne are a great couple and had a small intimate wedding with their closest family and friends at Rockliffe Hall after a civil ceremony at County Hall Northallerton.

I met with Elizabeth for the first time only 6 weeks before her wedding, which is unusual, but we got on famously in the hour while we talked about her plans for her wedding celebrations. I didn't need to be there all day as is normal, and the wedding party was originally going to be for only nine friends and relatives, but this ended up as just 21 guests at Rockliffe Hall.

Many more brides are looking for small intimate weddings and am happy to tailor my coverage for a smaller wedding.

I met with Elizabeth and her son and Wayne at their beautiful home as they prepared for their guests arriving and there was a lot of fun and champagne on the terrace before they piled into two stretch limousines to take them for their civil ceremony at Northallerton County Hall.

Elizabeth didn't expect to be crying at any point, but she was definitely bubbling as she stood at the front of the ceremony room with the registrar and while a very funny Pam Ayers poem was read out.

So with tears and laughter we went outside to grab a few shots with confetti for her lady friends and then headed over to Rockliffe Hall where they had booked a private dining room to celebrate their marriage.

Although Rockliffe Hall is very new and shiny, it's been extended from a much older building and the architects and developers have done a brilliant job making it all work so well, and once the grounds approaching the hotel develop and grow, it will be an even more magnificent wedding venue.

I had time on the terrace while the guests had some more champagne to sort a few quick family and friend groups then borrowed the bride and groom for a few intimate photographs, before I said my thanks and farewell to the happy couple and their guests as they sat down to dinner.

It was a lovely small intimate wedding, full of fun and laughter and tears and joy. It was a pleasure to be part of Elizabeth and Wayne's wedding celebrations at Rockliffe Hall!
