Alnwick Wedding & Low Newton Beach, Northumberland

Steph and Elliot hold the North East Coast close to their hearts as a favourite holiday destination of theirs. As they are not from the area they travelled up to the North East over the last bank holiday to marry in Northumberland by the coast with a small wedding party of 8 adults and 5 kids.

They contacted me having seen a relaxed beach wedding on my website shot in Alnwick Registry Office and then on to Low Newton. They wanted to emulate this wedding from the series of wedding photos I took for Haley and Tony. As this was a small event and a low key day with a smaller budget and less fuss, they opted to hire me by the hour for simple documentary wedding photography of their day.

The weather couldn’t have been more different than Haley & Tony’s blazing sun as the rain didn’t stop but neither did the days plans! So we went on to the beach and got some beautiful stormy shots in their gorgeous vintage wedding outfits and bouquet. The challenge of wedding photography in heavy rain and wind out on the beach was a lot of  fun and added a unique story to the images. Once Steph and Elliot could bear no more cold coastal wind they went back to The Ship Inn for a cosy wedding breakfast with locally sourced fish and the Ship’s micro brewery real ale. Now that’s my kind of day!

If you have a small wedding planned why not get in touch? I can offer wedding photography at a low cost with no frills to fit limited budgets by charging by the hour. I also have a new range of wedding albums and packages coming out this month to fit all budgets so keep your eyes peeled for more news.

Lizzie & Chris Wedding, High House Farm, Northumberland.

This August Lizzie and Chris wed at a beautiful church in Low Fell, Gateshead and then celebrated in a rustic style in the fabulous Northumberland countryside at High House Farm Brewery, Matfen. It was a corker evening weather-wise and an absolute pleasure to shoot with all the attention to detail, tasteful decorations and country backdrops.

The barn at High House Farm gave a great shield from any rain so it was the perfect spot for outdoor British wedding celebrations! There was B&B accommodation, a field for camping and indoor rooms with bar and restaurant so what more could you want?

The guests enjoyed some fantastic locally produced food including an ice-cream booth offering several yummy flavours! The farm has a brewery which meant their own ‘Nuptial’s’ brew was on tap and the hops, old stone walls, farm setting and spectacular sunset lent themselves to some rich creative photography… see what you think and for more information on HIgh House Brewery as a venue please visit http://www.highhousefarmbrewery.co.uk/index.php

Hayley and Tony Northumberland Beach Wedding

You wouldn’t believe this was only last month would you? What glorious sunny weather Hayley and Tony were blessed with on this stunning stretch of Northumberland coast. It was an amazingly romantic setting, for an extremely romantic couple.

I felt really privileged to be shooting this as the family, guests and couple were such a joy to be around all day. Thank goodness it was fabulous weather as Tony’s family had travelled from New Zealand so it was important the Northern coastline was shown off to its best! Tony’s creative and generous mother had handmade the rings adding an incredible personal touch to the wedding ceremony at a baking hot Alnwick Registry Office.

A relaxed reception followed at a rented holiday house on the sea front with guests each bringing dishes, sitting and chatting on rugs in the garden. The party spilled out on to Newton Beach where the kids paddling in the sea in their finery! The chaps rolled their trousers up chatting in the waves and the ladies ditched their heels for a game of frisbee (yep.. thats how you spell it, I googled it)!

After a stroll up the beach with the happy couple to Embleton Bay to capture some very special wedding shots using Dunstanburgh Castle as a backdrop, the day concluded with a meal and celebratory toasts at The Ship Inn on Newton Beach for all the guests. It was a truly fantastic day!

Congratulations Hayley and Tony and I wish you a wonderful future together!

Jo & Jeff Wedding @ Wylam Church & Close House Northumberland

The gorgeous couple Jo and Jeff got married and celebrated last month at two beautiful settings in Northumberland. They both looked amazing in their wedding finery and grinned from ear to ear ALL day & night so were an absolute joy to photograph!

It was a truly fantastic day and choosing a handful to show you hasn’t been easy from the hundreds of happy moments captured, but hopefully you will enjoy these that take you from morning to the groups at Close House. The wedding breakfast, couple and evening shots will come next so watch out for the golf club action!
