Today I am thrilled to share this stunning Northumberland Wedding at Derwent Manor country house with pretty blue and white details.

Erika says of the couples Northumberland wedding day…
Andrea and Jonny tied the knot in a beautifully emotional wedding held at Derwent Manor Hotel in Durham.
Set in 20 acres of Northumberland countryside overlooking the Derwent Valley, this country house hotel is deceptive.
On approach it looks as though it’s going to be quite small and unassuming, however inside, it has the most spectacular ballroom and so much space!
Somehow, despite being less than fifteen minutes away from the hotel, I had never had the pleasure of working there before.
I love to work at new venues because they give me new challenges and new scenery, Derwent Manor offered some gorgeous backdrops and the ceremony room is really spectacular too.
I arrived nice and early and was greeted by many cheerful guests enjoying the sunshine, as well as a slightly nervous Groom Jonny.
I’m not sure what he was so worried about because when Andrea walked down the aisle she looked truly stunning.
Andrea’s dress was a simple shape but had beautiful lace detailing that was complimented by Jonny’s equally stylish suit.
Andrea had also chosen a beautiful white floral bouquet with plentiful foliage that maintained the theme.
Lilies are one of my favourite flowers and I love how the florist contrasted the grand statement of the lily with the equally gorgeous yet tiny gypsophilia.
It was a wonderful ceremony, and this was one of those days where the love that two people have for each other is almost tangible.
Emotions were running high throughout and many guests were moved to tears.
Following the ceremony we took a handful of family photos, and after that the day was pure reportage.
I thoroughly enjoyed making my way through people being silly, telling jokes, and enjoying the day.
I also loved the elegant styling of Andrea and Jonny’s wedding from the gorgeous florals, the beautiful tablescapes to the cake which maintained the blue and white theme, and the mood lighting in the ballroom which the hotel turned to blue so that it would match in too.
