The Wedding of Sean & Kirsty – Sneak Peek

I think I may run out of superlatives for this wedding so please bear with me…. What a day, what a beautifully relaxed wedding amongst lovely families, awesome friends and a spectacular setting. When I met Kirsty and Sean at Goldsborough Hall for their pre-wedding shoot, I was absolutely blown away with it as a wedding venue, and that was a very rainy summers day. Fast forward to yesterday and the sunshine was breaking the pavements, and this majestic building sat perfectly nestled in the quiet village. From the minute I arrived (7.35am) with Kirsty and the rest of the bridesmaids I got the sense of how relaxed this day was going to be, and it continued in perfect fashion….. Here are a few of my favourites from the day…..

Special thanks to Alec once again for his assisting skills…

The Wedding of Jonathan & Kathleen – Sneak Peek

Dodging rain and golf balls… I could summarise the wedding of this lovely couple with that phrase. However, a far more fitting description would be; A relaxing and beautiful wedding. Jonathan and Kathleen tied the knot at a lovely church with plenty of natural light in Durham before heading up through some winding roads to Slaley Hall, set in the gorgeous Northumberland countryside. The day was jam-packed with happy people, fun times and lots of love. Here are a few of my favourites from the day….

Fashion Photography Workshop

So Friday saw us hosting our first location Fashion Photography Workshop at Bede’s World in Jarrow. We enlisted the help of some of our favourite models to ensure that our attendees experienced some of the best models that the North East has to offer.

We literally shot from 10.30 through to 5pm and I for one was exhausted at the end. Steph O’Neill our hairstylist and Make up Artist Holy Moulden produced awesome looks with some clothing from Chic Unique.

Here are a few images from the day along with some diagrams on the lighting we used.

The Wedding of Libby & Chris – Sneak Peek

I first met Libby & Chris at a wedding fayre up at Vallum Farm a couple of years ago when I was exhibiting and giving a talk about photography. They got in touch a few months later and started telling me about the amazing day they had planned; tying the knot on the Grand staircase in the Civic Centre followed by the reception at the Northern Stage on the Newcastle University Campus….. It sounded awesome….and it was!!

I do love a more urban venue to capture something a little different and out of the ordinary and I wasn’t disappointed! There was so much so capture, take in and unlimited possibilities with photographs we could take. This was an amazing day to be part of, with two lovely families and a very fun group of friends!

Here are a few of my favourites from the day….

Special thanks to Alex for his assisting skills once again…..

The Wedding of Nicola & John – Sneak Peek

It’s about time that the British Summer made an appearance, and thankfully for Nicola & John it happened yesterday….

St Paul’s Church in Jarrow is one of my favourite settings to shoot in the sunshine, the archway created by the line of trees down the 200 yard approach from the road is spectacular in high sun. The speckles of light find their way through the breaks in the leaves, the mix of greens in the foliage make for a beautiful view.

This lovely couple tied the knot at St Paul’s before heading onto the Quality Hotel in Boldon to enjoy the rest of the day. Here are a few of my favourites……

The Wedding of Jess & Jack – Sneak Peek

What a lovely day to be involved with. Seriously. I mean I often say that I’ve enjoyed myself shooting weddings, but this was just a laugh a minute, surrounded by great characters, fantastic stories and lovely people. Jess & Jack tied the knot at the very picturesque All Saints Church in Cleadon before heading on down to the coast for some photographs around the beach at Haven Point. Here are a few of my favourites from the day (and believe me it was hard to narrow it down to just these……)

Special Thanks for Colin Davidson for assisting

The Wedding of Alex and Annie – Sneak Peek

Despite the fact Alex is a massive Sunderland supported, I was delighted to be asked to capture his special day as he married his lovely bride Annie. Alex and I go back a few years and it was a true pleasure to see a good friend settle down and marry this beautiful young lady. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest this was a very imitate wedding with a reception at the ever impressive Lumley Castle. Luckily the rain held off and we had some beautiful skies to shoot against, and despite the cold these guys were more than willing to come out at night for some extra shots.

Here are a few of my favourites from the day

The Wedding of Lisa & Matthew – Sneak Peek

Love, love, love, love, crazy love (in the voice of the Buble) would be the way I’d start to talk about this lovely couple. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Lisa for more years than I care to remember, and have to thank her for indirectly being the reason I found my Wife! It was beyond a pleasure to capture this wedding surrounded by lots of familiar faces and friendly people (including the Missus as a bridesmaid). From start to finish it was chilled, fun and full of energy – an absolutely perfect match for this Bride, paired up with the very calm and collected Matthew, this day was awesome going to be a hit for everyone who was invited!
Here are is a snapshot of their amazing day….

Engagement Shoot – Lisa & Matt – Sneak Peek

Next weekend I have the absolute pleasure of shooting the wedding of this lovely couple. Having known Lisa for a lot of years I was honoured when they asked me to shoot their wedding in the best place on earth (Yes that’s Jarrow I’m talking about) before heading to Gateshead for the reception.

For their engagement shoot we headed on down to Saltwell Park on a chilly morning where its safe to say Lisa & Matt were very nervous to be in front of the camera. But after a few minutes and a quick coffee in Saltwell Towers, these guys really relaxed and look very natural in front of the camera!

It’s gonna be a great wedding, especially once Lisa hits the dance floor….(keep an eye out for that on the blog)
