The Barn On The Bay, Druridge Bay, Northumberland
Northumberland is one of my favourite places to visit because it has a coastline dotted with beautiful stops, like at Druridge Bay.
So, along my travels I was photographing a few couples so that we could get familiar with working together ready for their big day. And of course we were in Druridge Bay enjoying a nice stroll along the beautiful sun-bleached sands, whilst the wind created little tornados of light-scattered particles across our feet. And we listen. Listen to what Northumberland is. That calm breeze that is almost silent, but for the light lapping of the waves darkening and marking their boundary, before stretching to the horizon.
An elderly man is walking his dog, pipe in hand, a checkered cap and moustache slightly stained. Hello. Hi there. The couple play with the West Yorkshire Terrier as the man proceeds to direct me. You're a photographer eh? A wedding photographer. You might want to go and have a look at the new wedding venue at Calico Barn, it's their open day.
I had 30 minutes free before my next appointment. I'm the barn-guy, (as some people call me), my lunch can wait.
