Gareth & Rachel | Cuddystone Hall Wedding Photography

What an amazing wedding. If you're looking for somewhere full of greenery and rolling hills and complete privacy, Cuddystone Hall could be an amazing venue for your big day. Gareth & Rachel picked Cuddystone and completely made the day their own, even down to all the amazing decor made by Rachel herself. The day was so laid back and so much fun! Also, ceilidh bands are an amazing choice for some serious evening entertainment!  

Gary & Lynsey | The Garden Station Wedding

I've been so lucky this year. I've photographed some really amazing weddings & really amazing couples. Gary & Lynsey are one of them. From the moment we met, I knew that they were going to have a day full of fun!

The Garden Station is a quirky little venue in Langley, it's got vintage vibes and is perfect for a summery outdoor wedding. They also do wonderful pies. I think we pulled this one off pretty well. 

Charlotte & Paul | Jesmond Dene House Wedding

Jesmond Dene House hosted the wedding of Charlotte & Paul in July. Being situated right next to Jesmond Dene itself makes it wonderful for photos! Being so close to Newcastle is perfect if you forget your socks or cufflinks. 

I love a wedding with loads of details and Charlotte & Paul's wedding was no exception. A stunning cake, amazing florals from Floral Quarter and a Provonias dress really ties this wedding together. Also a big thanks to Samantha McPake & Danni Hesketh for hair and make up! 

Louise & Chris | South Shields Engagement

If you're up for anything, so am I! So I love engagement shoots like this, where we get to connect with each other, have a laugh, enjoy a beautiful day by our beautiful coast up here in the North East. We're so lucky to have such amazing scenery right by our doorstep - we need to make the most of it! 

Louise & Chris are fabulous. I am so so excited to shoot their Le Petite Chateau wedding in October, fingers crossed for some beautiful autumn colours and sunshine :) 

Zoe & Phil | Tynemouth Beach Engagement

You can do so much with a simple setting! Beach shoots like this with chilled out couples are just perfect. Tynemouth beach is such a cute little spot for your couples shots before the big day and when you have a lovely couple like this it just makes the day a breeze! The sunshine helps a bit I guess...

Still looking for a wedding photographer? Maybe you'd like a cozy couples session?

Jen & Phil | Carlisle Wedding Photography

I'm going to do a little bit of maths. Wedding converse + BBQ food + loads of time for couples shots = one super happy photographer! I recon Jen & Phil were pretty happy too. 

Jen & Phil had their engagement shoot with me a while back in Chopwell Woods, and I knew then that their wedding was going to be wonderful and very them. Jen was a super crafty bride, she did alot of the hard work herself, she is also a designer - she makes the cutest little graphics for blogs. I think this creativity really came out in the wedding. 

Jen got ready in the centre of Carlisle at the Halston which is fab because it has wonderful large windows which make it perfect for my style of photography, I love lots of natural light! She had her hair done by Laura McAlindon from Halo Hair & make up by Five Senses Hideaway going for a really chilled and natural look. When ready we headed to the Registry Office where Jen & Phil said their vows and exchanged rings. Confetti was thrown and then we had a little session with their son to get some lovely images of the three of them together. We headed to the Tithe Barn, Carlisle, where Jen had set up those all important DIY decorations, she did such an amazing job, the theme was just so relaxed like them. Ok, so I mentioned BBQ before, and this was provided by Border Hog Roast and it was genuinely amazing. I mean it. I know I say amazing a lot, but really. If you have BBQ food at your wedding, I want to photograph it. There were some embarrassing speeches, an awesome couples session and some dancing to put the icing on the three french fancy cakes. 

Such a great day! 

Are you planing a cute little DIY wedding too?

I love to photograph them.

Lynsey & Gary | Wheelbirks Ice Cream Parlour Engagement

Scroll through these images and you'll see just how much fun it was. Fun shoots like this are the reason I love doing pre-weddings shoots. We can get to know each other, share some ice cream and maybe be licked by a cow or two (this makes more sense after you see all the photos)! I want them to be an opportunity to calm any nerves you may have about having your photos taken on the big day - I hope this did the job!
