When JP & Ragan got in touch with only a few months to spare looking for a northumberland wedding photographer for their Slaley Hall Wedding, I was more than happy to help! Slaley Hall in December provides some awesome green backdrops and a beautiful venue to work with, definitely worth a look if you're looking for a venue in the north east. The have some really lovely well lit rooms that are great for bridal preparation, especially if you have lots of kids or bridesmaids running around trying to get ready. We love a busy wedding though! With all the amazing details that Ragan had picked out I definitely didn't run out of things to photograph.
The day then progressed into a beautiful ceremony in the drawing room where the light floods in from the large patio doors behind you, on a day like JP & Ragan's where the winter suns shining outside it makes some really stunning lighting. Vows & rings were exchanged and so many happy memories made, after the ceremony the couple walked down the aisle to confetti being scattered and then the guests were off for canapés and drinks.
For their couple shots the newly wed couple braved the cold, well done to them because it was so chilly, and we got some awesome shots of them in the gardens and by the large trees just outside of the hall. In all my couple shots I try to capture some authentic emotion, instead of capturing chesey smiles I like to get some real happiness into the shots and capture the way the couple really feel about each other. Happy couple? Silly couple? Playful? Let's put that into your photos!
The rest of the day brought tears, laughs and smiles and some more amazing opportunities to record JP & Ragan's big day. I had an awesome time capturing JP & Ragan's big day, if you're looking for wedding photography in Northumerland or the North East drop me a message, let's see what we can do!
