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!

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 –
