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

This is the second set of images from Jo & Jeff’s amazing Northumberland wedding at Easter this year. After great speeches food and mingling, the wedding party were joined by the evening guests who arrived to a magician, a hog roast and a golfing competition to get the ball into a hole on an island in the lake.

One of the guests said if her hubby managed to get a hole in one she would give him the additional child he had be asking for….the thing was, she hadn’t realised it was actually  possible. Oops, looks like they will be getting busy this year!

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!

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!
