Wedding Photography at Hardwick Hall, County Durham / by Simon Cardwell

Here are a few from a wedding I shot at Hardwick Hall in County Durham back on October 10th 2015. 

This is a local venue for me (10-15 minutes from my front door) yet it's not one I've photographed at that often over the years, hopefully that will change & I will be back more regularly. 


I don't like to pose people too much on the day, so I look for more natural moments to document the day:

and it's nice when a sequence of photos develops naturally with no prompting: 


The speeches always provide good photographs, as no one is paying any attention to me:

A nice unguarded moment towards the end of the day:
