Wedding Photography at the Radisson Blu in Durham by Simon Cardwell

The Radisson Blu in Durham is set in a beautiful location on the banks of the river in the city centre.

Unfortunately on this occasion there was extensive building work going on nearby, so we were largely limited to inside the hotel & just outside:

A photo the bride may not necessarily even want me to take can sometimes turn into a unique photograph. I always try to get something in a lift if I can:

On this occasion there were no photos allowed during the ceremony so I could only get the bride’s entrance:

Outside the hotel a practical joke led to one of my favourite photos of the day:

The bride & groom being introduced into the room is one of my favourite parts of any wedding day:

The gap between the end of the wedding breakfast & the start of the evening reception can be a quiet time, but on this occasion it was very lively & produced some good photographs:

Photo Fridays - A new weekly blog by Simon Cardwell

I've decided I will be sharing a photograph from my archive every Friday. 

It will be 1 photo at a time, selected from the hundreds of weddings I have shot over the last 9 years. 


The first photograph I have chosen to share with you is this one of 3 girls on a bouncy castle, it is from a wedding at Bede Tower in my hometown of Sunderland, taken in 2014.
