Gillian Cross's Description:

It's your big day! It's exciting and possibly a little nerve wracking! There has been so much time and effort put into making everything special, and I'm on hand to document all of those cherished moments.

My blog is a mix of photographs from an entire wedding, to posts about specific aspects of a wedding day. Things I notice like different ways to display the table numbers.

I'm unobtrusive and friendly, and will blend into the background of your special day.

A lovely summer's wedding day at Crook Hall and this couple were welcoming their evening guests. This was lovely as it was in a separate part of the garden to where the daytime guests were, so they got a chance to chat to their evening guests properly. Gillian.

This is a really summery wedding bouquet with an unusual splash of peach. The flower girl's sash and the groom's tie were blue so the cornflowers were ideal. I love the hydrangea and the peonies, a real flavour of summer! Gillian.
