*** UPDATE: ROAD CLOSURE ***

There is a road closure between A68 and Walworth Gate which means there are diversions in place in order to get to the castle. The diversions are for a period of 3 weeks from 26th September. The hotel is open as usual throughout this time and this will not affect the wedding fayre on October 2nd.
The best route to get to the hotel from the A68 is either via the Royal Oak turn off on the A688 following the diversions, or alternatively on West Auckland Road and through Cockerton. Access to the castle from Staindrop Road is open as normal. Any questions just call us on 01325 485470.

Katy & Dimitris // Lartington Hall Real Wedding

Katy, a primary school teacher, met Dimitris, the owner of a popular bar in Corfu whilst holidaying on the Greek island in 2009. They were married at Wycliffe Church earlier this year and hosted their fabulous wedding reception at one of the North’s most in demand wedding venues, Lartington Hall, near Barnard Castle. The day was captured by Graham and Bridgit from ‘And Ever After Photography‘.

Read on for Katy’s story in her own words…

The Proposal

Keswick was one of the first places I took Dimitris when he visited me in England. Dimitris decided that on their anniversary he would propose there. I had no idea what he was planning but he was adamant that we had to visit Keswick on this particular day, even though the weather forecast was terrible – I couldn’t understand the need to traipse over to the Lake District in such awful weather but went along with it to please him. Dimitris set up a tripod with his camera in order to take a photo, saying they never got one with both of them in it, however he actually set it to record and filmed the proposal. Just as he pointed out to Katy that he filmed it all, the wind blew the camera over into a puddle!

ever_001ever_003

The Dress

“I’d originally wanted a lace dress but felt that they were missing something when I was trying them on, then someone suggested a particular dress they had in stock so I agreed to try it but was dubious as it was satin, not lace. However, as soon as it was on I knew I had to have it, it fitted perfectly and gave me the shape and style I’d imagined. Bought from Wed2b – Gateshead – superb service and not pushy at all.

And Ever After Photography-007And Ever After Photography-049ever_002And Ever After Photography-014

The Photographer

Graham and Bridgit from ‘And Ever After‘ were our wedding photographers. We met them at the Walworth Castle Wedding Fayre. Their work was relaxed and natural – just what we were looking for, and the fact they worked as a couple, capturing the different aspects of the day, was perfect for us.

They were so friendly, approachable and laid-back – and this was reflected in their photography style – totally natural and they captured all of our special moments.

We love our wedding images, they’re exactly what we wanted them to be – they capture the emotions of the day and look really natural. They were able to capture parts of the day that passed us by very quickly. The more we look at them, the more we see and remember. They really tell the story of the day.

“We would recommend ‘& Ever After Photography’ very highly! We couldn’t have asked for better service, and my sister is now using them for her wedding too.”

Graham & Bridgit brought such a relaxed element to the day and made us both feel completely at ease.

And Ever After Photography-012And Ever After Photography-016 And Ever After Photography-020 And Ever After Photography-021ever_004

“And Ever After Photography brought such a relaxed element to the day and made us both feel completely at ease.”

The Venue

“The wedding ceremony was at St Mary’s, Wycliffe CE Church – this was in the village I grew up in and my parents still live there. Our wedding reception was held at Lartington Hall. We loved the exclusivity of the venue and felt nowhere nearby offered anything close in terms of service, attention to the couple or style. We went for a visit expecting it to be out of our budget but the second we walked through the doors into the hallway we instantly fell in love with it and knew it had to be there.

John and Shona, the owners at Lartington Hall, couldn’t do enough for us to make sure the day was perfect. We didn’t have to think about anything on the day. The staff were professional but also lighthearted and relaxing to be around!

“The second we walked through the doors into the hallway we instantly fell in love with Lartington Hall and knew it had to be there.”

The Details

Flowers were done by family friend, Emma Calvert. Decorations were all provided by myself and the venue arranged them. Hurricane vases on tables for the breakfast and stainless steel lanterns for our evening reception.

We had a 4 tiered sponge cake (Victoria, Chocolate, Lemon and Carrot) made and decorated by bride’s sister, Jo Bestford. It was amazing and the Greek guests spent the next few days arguing over which flavoured cake was the most delicious!”

Keighley & Adam: A Romantic Morritt Hotel Wedding

We’re excited to bring you the first of several real wedding stories that will be appearing on the Darlington Weddings Blog over the next couple of weeks. Adam & Keighley were married at The Morritt Hotel & Spa in September 2015, following a beautiful and thoughtful proposal. The wedding was captured beautifully by Camera A Photography. Read on for Keighley’s story…

The Proposal

“It was December 2013 and Adam had booked us a long weekend away to a surprise location. My Dad died when I was little and we have a memorial seat at the end of my Mam’s estate for him. Adam decided we should go for a walk in the rain, which I though was odd as we weren’t taking the dog. We walked to Dad’s chair and Adam got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. The rain added to the romance, I was overwhelmed with happiness and said yes. Adam said it was a way of asking Dad and me at the same time, it was so thoughtful and perfect to me. We celebrated with my family at my brother Ross’ house that night for a secret celebration and then Adam whisked me away to, The Cranleigh, a beautiful boutique hotel in the Lakes. It was perfect.”

0009

The Dress

“I wore a beautiful lace over tulle mermaid gown designed by Enzoani. The beaded lace detail was stunning and the shape suited my figure perfectly. My dress was from Accent Original in Newcastle. As soon as I tried the dress on, I felt amazing and knew it was the one. I had a veil made to match my dress which was beautiful lace.”

0041

The Photographer

“Camera A were our wedding photographers, they were brilliant. Jane from Camera A was great, she was really down to earth and direct in her approach and the example albums were beautiful. Jane was very friendly and listened to what we wanted in a photographer. I liked her instantly which is important. The example wedding albums had a great mix of natural and traditional images.”

“They helped morning of the wedding and ensured that all of the photos that we wanted were taken throughout the day. They interacted well with our guests and seem to slip away into the background. Jane and Aimee were excellent, they captured every part of our special day.”

0212 0154 0402 0421 0443 0549

“We got our images from the wedding very quickly and they were amazing. It was wonderful reliving our day through the photographs and great seeing every part of the day.”

“We are so pleased with our wedding photographs, they are so special to us and what we love is that who ever looks at each photo has their own special memory of the day. I would most definitely recommend Camera A to other couples, they listened to everything we wanted and the end product was stunning.”

0583 0592 0598 0599 0626

The Venue

“By chance, we came across the The Morritt Hotel as we were looking at spa weekends together and they have the beautiful Garage Spa. We instantly fell in love with the place with the old worldly bar, lovely light ballroom, beautiful garden with amazing views of the countryside – it had everything we both wanted.

“We married at St Michael and All Angels Church in Barningham. The church was only a five minute drive from The Morritt, situated in a idyllic spot with amazing views of the surrounding area.”

0618 0634 0578

The Details

“Our theme was lace detailing and autumnal colours with dark reds for our bridesmaid dresses and flowers, which matched our venue perfectly.”

“Flowers were by Muscari, freelance florist Denise, with burgundy roses and ivory calla lillys for the bouquets. We borrowed two milk churns that were filled with flowers for the entrance to the church. Muscari are incredible, the flowers really were the best I’ve seen and the detailing was perfect.”

“Kelly Ann’s Cakes, created a delicious wedding cake to compliment our Autumnal theme.”

0630 0676 0873 1042 1155

The Honeymoon

“After the wedding we stayed another night at The Morritt and had a wonderful relaxing spa day together with lots of treatments. We then spent a week in Heather Cottage, a beautiful retreat in the Derbyshire Dales. It was lovely having some time for us, we went for walks, had a days out and sipped champagne in our garden hot tub, it was a lovely retreat.”

“In May 2016, we honeymooned in California. We hired a car and hit Santa Monica, Hollywood, LA, San Diego, Las Vegas, Yosemite National Park, Sonoma Valley, San Francisco, Big Sur and Malibu to name a few. It was our trip of a lifetime together before we start a Larkin family of our own.”
