Kate & Dave | From Crook Hall to St Mary's Heritage Centre to BALTIC - Wedding

‘OMG Margarita thank you soooo much! .. I’m so glad we chose you to capture our day .. You did such an amazing job, honestly, it’s so hard to choose my faves .. Can’t thank you enough’

Kate & Dave’s wedding was one for the books! I am over the Moon I was there to witness it with my camera. Quite speechless actually!

I remember getting ready for this wedding on Thursday night when I saw beautiful fireworks outside my window, and thought to myself ‘that’s quite a start to Kate & Dave’s wedding celebrations tomorrow’ and I wasn’t wrong. (Well, the fireworks weren’t theirs really, it was just quite lucky!) The whole day was just incredible.

Kate & Dave celebrated their wedding in April across several different venues –  after getting ready with her girls at the Hilton (Newcastle Gateshead),  Kate was joined by her (very emotional) dad and travelled in cute VW Campervan and Beetle to Crook Hall & Gardens in Durham to marry Dave and to have celebratory bubbles and fish & chips with a gorgeous crowd of guests. The gardens here are just wonderful, so we made full use of them for their couples photographs, too. They then moved onto St Marys Heritage Centre in Gateshead where everyone sat down for the speeches and the meal. Lastly everyone headed to the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art where the band was already set up waiting for the party to start.

I remember seeing Kate enjoying her halloumi fries in the gardens around Crook Hall, chatting and laughing away, while it was raining a little on her; and I thought to myself ‘ah that’s my bride’.

It was an amazing day for the couple, the guests, and me!! :) Ah I’m so happy I had such a privilege to capture this beauty of a wedding day! THANK YOU!

Also a big thank you to Gill from Unfurl Photography who was my second shooter.
