When Natalie and Sergio first contacted me about their wedding at the Alnwick Garden I knew it was going to be a very special day. Carefully planned by the couple every single detail was perfect.

Outdoor wedding at the Alnwick Garden

It was actually the fist outdoor wedding ceremony held at The Alnwick Garden. Outdoor weddings are always so beautiful. Though you always have to keep the weather in mind. But for Natalie and Sergio’s big day the weather was gorgeous.

This day two families from Scotland and Spain came to celebrate Natalie and Sergio exchanging their vows. Under the spectacular hornbeam arbours at this unique Northumberland wedding venue located in the heart of Alnwick, these two said ‘I do’ after a few touching readings in both English and Spanish. After an emotional ceremony we headed for some family photos just outside the main fountain cascade. What more do you need to get some beautiful wedding photos of the bride and groom on their wedding day? A perfect backdrop.

The reception was held at the pavilion overlooking the grand cascade. With its glass walls and panoramic views over the garden it was a truly unique setting that resulted in beautiful wedding photography.

Of course there was time for some sunset photos after the speeches. When the sun got lower we went for a short photo walk around the garden.

A wonderful celebration of marriage of two fab people who celebrated their wedding at The Alnwick Garden. Natalie and Sergio chose me as their wedding photographer. I could tell you about the stunning dress or the prettiest flowers but take a look at the photographs and soak up the laughter and the love.

It wasn’t the only time I met these two at a wedding though. Some time later we met again at Natalie’s brother’s wedding outside Edinburgh. If you want to see Bridget and Martin’s wedding then please check this post – The Barn at Harburn wedding.

Both bride and groom were getting ready at The Village Farm Cottages in a small village of Shilbottle near Alnwick. The day started very emotionally when Sergio read out a letter from Natalie that went:

Good morning my Spanish monkey,

I never thought in my dreams I could meet a man like you nevermind being so lucky as to call you ‘my husband’. You truly are my best friend, you make my world complete and you are the reason why I can love someone so much. Your laugh makes me laugh and your amazing smile makes any of my bad days beautiful again. I can’t wait to start a new life together and continue to be with you and me against the world. I love you so much with all my heart.

Your wife to be.

It only got better and more emotional when during the ceremony Natalie read her vows to Sergio:


I promise to give you my love and my friendship, to be there with you when you need me the most, co laugh with you, to cry with you, to confide and trust in you, to comfort and support you, to share all that I have with you, to respect you and to be faithful always. I promise to stand by you in every stage of live whether things are good or bad I promise to never leave you. Your home will be my home, your bed will be my bed and your children will be my children. I promise to be your partner, your lover, your biggest fan and your best friend until I breathe my last breath. These promises I make to you for the rest of my life.

I love you.
