Wedding Photography at the Morritt Arms, County Durham / by Simon Cardwell

This was a very enjoyable wedding - full of happy people & just generally a pleasure to be there. Taking place at the Morritt Arms, which is a lovely venue at Gretna Bridge, near Barnard Castle here in County Durham.

I have worked at The Morritt in the past but this was my first visit since moving back to the north east earlier this year. It's a lovely presented & nicely sized venue, which means less grounds & corridors to walk down & more time to take photographs. 

As usual the coverage starts during the bridal preparations:

The ceremony took place in a beautifully lit room with natural light coming in, which always makes for nicely lit photographs:

The beautiful grounds at The Morritt make an excellent backdrop for the traditional group photographs:

Couples that book me don't typically want to spend too long posing for photographs on their wedding day, favouring a more natural approach, yet we usually do a handful of posed pictures around the grounds of the venue:

Fantastic natural light coming in again allowed for beautifully lit photographs during the speeches:

Children are an important part of most weddings I attend, and are usually much less guarded than adults, which works perfectly with my natural style of photography:
