Lartington Hall’s claim is, if you are looking for a venue like no other then look no further. We think that just about sums up this stunning wedding venue, it really is like entering your very own perfect world as the website says “One visit and you will be captivated”
John and Helen felt it was the perfect location for their marriage ceremony and to invite their their friends and family to. Many of their guests were travelling from varying parts of England and John’s family from Ireland so what better place to have them visit in the than this lovely countryside hideaway?
Their wedding day was always going to be relaxed, organised and beautiful, three words that we would say can also be used to sum up John and Helen. They weren’t even phased on their pre wedding shoot at Auckland Castle when we had torrential rain. On their wedding day they were much luckier and had a perfect warm day for guests to enjoy the surrounding gardens at Lartington Hall.
Helen’s gown was stunning, from designer Vera Wang and was named Odette, which was very apt as Helen danced a lot in her younger days and her favourite ballet is Swan Lake. On top of this Helen’s mum is a seamstress and customised the bodice of her dress.
From the beautiful ceremony in the family chapel at Lartington, drinks reception on the lawns, wedding breakfast in the grand Ballroom followed by a very enthusiastic party, dancing the night away to Wedding band their whole day rang like clockwork. Big thanks to John, Shona and all their staff at Lartington Hall and to Helen & John for bringing the perfect Bride and Groom.
