Keith Moss Wedding Workshop at Wynyard Hall

Last week I signed up for a super valuable training day through Teesside University with my mentor Keith Moss to shoot at a venue I hadn’t been to before.

Wynyard Hall is notoriously difficult to shoot in due to the light conditions so we had the chance to guide our models and experiment with our equipment- something you just can’t do on your client’s special day!!

The results were great and the day was fun, we had wedding guests, sunshine and lots of nerdy photography talk… and to any fellow photographers, Keith is a top guy and his workshops are well worth the investment, his style is relaxed and his knowledge is vast see whats on offer at

Sophie & Jay Wedding, March 2011

Sophie contacted me last year and inquired about wedding photography, and by a twist of fate it turned out that I used to babysit her and her brothers when I was a teenager as we grew up on the same street in Heaton.

Sophie and Jay wed at As You Like It, Newcastle upon Tyne in early March. It was a fantastic rich back drop creating interesting and unique wedding photography. It was a gorgeous sunny morning and then the rain came soon after we all bundled inside after the outdoor group shot- phew!

Sophie looked stunning and Jay looked like the happiest man alive! Congratulations to you both!

Christine and John’s wedding, Close House

Chris and John chose Close House in Northumberland as a dramatic setting to have their February wedding. The house has just had a refurbishment and looked spectacular. The sun shone and the guests were jolly! Here is a sneaky peek of a handful from the day, more to come….

Karen & San Wedding Photography

This wedding was a pleasure to shoot with the bride and groom perfectly colour coordinated with the gorgeous red brick backdrop of Hotel du Vin on Newcastle’s Quayside. Whilst the grand halls of Northumberland are always spectacular locations there was something real and familiar about this local backdrop.

After the tear jerking ceremony the reception was held in the Regeneration Centre on the Tyne bank.  As the bride’s parents gave an entertaining and moving speech, the sky looked threatening and dramatic allowing me to capture some corkers with the bridges in the picture. Karen’s little Figaro was also a dream to shoot with the Spiller’s Tyne Mill in the distance and as my brief from Karen and San had been to capture the day’s most special parts incorporating local landmarks, I thought it would be rude not to get this in too!

Hope you enjoy having a ‘neb’! (and for those who aren’t geordie –

Simon & Emma, Seaham Hall

This wedding was on that crazy scorching hot day in May this year, hitting over 30 degrees at midday! The guests were so glam and the bride was stunning, but the guys suffered in their smart waistcoats and tails in the heat. The cool church was welcomed respite from the unbelievable spring heat.

Seaham Hall was a supurb location with real fairy tale quality and was a photographers dream with so many backdrops to shoot against, including beautiful gardens, grand architecture and the famous elephant in the spa!

Emma and Simon had an amazing time and I hope the romance and high emotion of the day shows through the selection of couple shots I am posting up. Here’s to more hot Mays and a possible shift to beachwear for weddings!!
