Every now and then a wedding comes along that is totally crazy and Victoria & Daniel’s was just that.

I had the most amazing, fun, chilled and very sweaty wedding at the Black Horse Beamish in Co.Durham. I’ve never photographed a wedding at this venue before and I’d really been looking forward to it. Everything about it was awesome. From a wedding photographer’s point of view, it had had loads of light and great scenery. It’s a brilliant place with tons of cool details everywhere like its own orchard and lavender field. There’s a pond and plenty of surrounding countryside which makes for the perfect backdrop. This is all without the amazing couple and their crazy friends and family!

It was a beautiful summer day, an absolute scorcher and everyone was sweating even before the ceremony!

Victoria & Daniel both looked ace, along with the bridesmaid and groomsmen and both of their beautiful daughters who were flower girls.

The whole affair was so chilled out and fun and even during the service everyone was laughing and having a brilliant time! Because it was so hot, everyone piled outside for drinks and to cool down.

After the speeches, some singing waiters got the party started and it was just relentless from then on! There were dance offs, congas, human pyramids, a magician and even a guest whose dress blended perfectly into the flower wall to name but a few. There were the lads on the tractor, the girls running through the lavender field, bees everywhere and it was all going on! I really wished I’d been able to stay there all night but I had another wedding the following day so I had to leave them all to it. I’m pretty sure they would have partied into the early hours.

Victoria and Daniel were a right laugh and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with them.

Here’s just a few of my favourite images.
