Catherine and Chris’ Same Day Edit at Crathorne Hall

Friday, 20 March 2009, can only be described as one gloriously beautiful spring day (although technically it wasn’t spring yet!). We travelled up to North Yorkshire, to Crathorne, pretty much right on the border with Durham County. It was the perfect day for Catherine and Chris to tie the knot, they couldn’t have wished for a more wonderful day. We arrived at the stunning Crathorne Hall Hotel a few hours before the wedding. We were doing a Same Day Edit, so we needed plenty of time to set up the edit suite and film the bride getting ready. Catherine was quite a nervous bride, but luckily at the same time, she was very excited and cheerful.
The ceremony took place at All Saints Church, just around the corner from the hall, with music provided by a string quartet and a lovely reading by the groom’s sister. After the ceremony, it was back to the Hall where the couple and their guests had exclusive of the hotel. The weather was so good that they even managed to have an outdoor reception (I think that’s a first for us for a March wedding). Throughout the day, we had loads of fun working together with Dirk Van Der Werff, a photographer from Hartlepool, with Dutch family roots, although he is through and through English.
In the evening, just before the first dance, we screened the Same Day Edit, this time on a big television in the bar area. As ever with Same Day Edits, it went down a storm, Catherine watched it 3 times in a row and as usual, plenty of the guests were in tears.
