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.

Alnwick Treehouse Intimate Wedding in Northumberland

This lovely couple got in touch as they were planning an intimate and small wedding in a months time in Alnwick Treehouse in Northumberland. They wanted a relaxed documentary approach to their wedding photography and my style fitted perfectly. With only two friends for wedding guests this was the smallest wedding I have ever photographed and certainly one of the most relaxed and fun! The Treehouse is a fantastic backdrop and a romantic venue for smaller weddings catering for simplicity, small parties and intimate groups wanting a fantastic dining experience.

The photography was creative and atmospheric as it captured the setting with home made table settings, the treehouse twinkly fairy lights, it’s famous wobbly rope bridge together with an open fire and table and chairs carved from wood. There was lots of laughter during the 3 hour shoot as the bride and groom were a hoot! I gave the newly wed couple and guests some space to capture creative reportage photography and a handful of posed just for the record.

If you are planning a wedding, this is your second marriage or you are just keen to make it a smaller event I offer wedding photography ‘by the hour’ as an alternative to investing in a large wedding package. This often suits those who want to get married quickly in the next few weeks or months rather than a year in the making. I will be there for the hours that you choose and then provide a CD approximately a week later for you to own the images on disc. I also provide albums and prints at a later date if you want additional services and these are at very affordable prices.

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
