Black Horse Beamish Wedding Photography – Rachel + Ben

We head up north to the Black Horse Beamish for Rachel and Ben’s musical marriage.

The ceremony was performed at St John Fisher R.C Church, Sedgefield and then we all headed up to The Black Horse Beamish for dinner and partying. The Black Horse is an ace venue, they have an epic marquee out the back of the pub which overlooks an orchard, a lavender field and the rolling countryside.

Two musicians getting wed was always going to be a tuneful event. we had guitar and violin at the ceremony, at the reception, there was a ceilidh, The Baghdaddies and the bride and groom did a turn too.

We need to talk about The Baghdaddies. Rachel and Ben were super excited that they had managed to book them for their wedding and were anxious to make sure we would stay till they arrived at the end of the day. We always stay until things start to quieten down anyway but having seen the band now, we understand why they were so hyped. The Baghdaddies are hard to describe, a mixture of jazz, ska, punk, brass, latin, Balkan, world-music. They’re confusing and infectious. They snook into the marquee as the brass started to build in volume and tempo until they had located and surrounded the bride, then the show got into full swing. They’re incredibly entertaining and skilled musicians and we’d certainly recommend you check them out.
