Catherine and Chris looked so in love during the great wedding day celebrations at Crathorne Hall near Yarm North Yorkshire - and they seemed to have the BEST wedding day with their close family and friends who mainly travelled from Leeds for their wedding.
I first met with Catherine and her chief bridesmaid and her mum at Crathorne Hall more than 10 months previously, but didn't meet with Chris until later. He wasn't particulalrly enamoured with the photographers he had already met - but luckily, I turned him around and assured his that I was going to take great photographs of him and Catherine sharing their day with friends and family and that all my best photographs would be of them chilling out and relaxing - with just 10 minutes for family groups shots and some posed images I had in mind!


Catherine' wrote to me straight after their wedding to say:

".... Chris and I just wanted to say a huge thank you again before we jet off on our honeymoon tomorrow... you were everything you had promised and a thousand times more!
We had so many comments about how brilliant, professional and relaxed you were - you impressed everyone at our wedding at Crathorne Hall. 

We can't wait to see the photos - and if you would like to put a selection on your BLOG whilst we are away, that is absolutely fine - as everyone is dying to see them! We will log on to see them in Borneo!


We will look forward to seeing them all when we get back and meeting with you to select the ones for the album... Many thanks again for the amazing hard work and the absolute perfect job you did on our wedding day

We can't put in to words how grateful we are for having you there, and how lucky we feel to have chosen the best photographer in the world!!
