15/10/16 - Fran & Anil's wedding at Le Petit Chateau.
This was my first outing at Le Petit Chateau. Le Petit Chateau is a new venue and perfect for my style, and I was in luck that the one and only fire fountain in the UK was operating, so amongst all of the fabulous images we got it was a great opportunity to capture the flames rising from the water. It required 3 off-camera lighting tools to make the shot work, so this here is a shot you possibly won't see again. On the day Fran and Anil were a great and very natural couple to work with so the photography was designed more around their personalities than tediously dragging them around the hotspots. We got some fantasic natural images though, hopefully they will let me blog the wedding and show off the high energy that was there on the day. Fran sister is a celebrity, so there were a few celebs in attendance. It was great working with you guys and lovely to see how much you were both in love. Congrats again! Paul.

It was lovely to meet Mike & Laura for their Pre-Story shoot and get a few nice pics down Jesmond Dene. We also caught this super cute ANI-Story whilst we were on.

26/11/16 - Cara & Ben's wedding at the Baltic.
I loved this wedding simply for the urban landscape and industrial feel. I gave Cara and Ben a list of options for their couple shots and this was one of the ideas they loved the most. It was good to work with two hard working and smart people, but to also see their fun and relaxed sense of humour. The speeches were absolutely hilarious! We got some great work together guys, enjoy your honeymoon! xx

23/10/16 - Anabelle & Gareth's wedding at Middleton Lodge, Yarm.
Middleton Lodge is one of those venues that works perfectly for weddings. Anabelle & Gareth were the perfect couple and the venue was completely fitting for their special day. I got to know Anabelle and bridesmaids quite well throughout the day, and they made me feel like a part of the wedding. It was great to see that everyone was there to have a great time. There was a lot of magic between Anabelle and Gareth too you could see that they were such a great match, and this created some truely great imagery. Thank you guys! xx

16/09/16 - Stephanie & Jonny's wedding at Middleton Lodge.
It was my first visit to Middleton Lodge, but earlier in the week when I did my recci after a few hours scoping out the venue it was clear that there were so many opportunities here and many that had not been done before. On the day Jonny and Steph were just out to have a great time and mingle with guests, with the options available it was easy to cater my ideas to what worked for them when they were ready. A nice, smart couple and a lovely day altogether.

31/08/16 - Paris & Lee's Beach wedding at Doxford Barns.
Have you ever seen a beach wedding look this stunning? The comination of the right light and edit work brings this Californian glow right out as we hit the peak of the summer season. The wedding was half Chineese and half English and it was lovely to see the two families coming together. Paris's family were lovely to talk to as were Lee's and the beach was an amazing touch to an otherwise beautiful day.!

08/07/16 - Katy & Ian's wedding at Healey Barn, Northumberland.
Keen travellers, these Australians eloped to the UK. When they travel, they photograph the places they visit with their back to the camera. I wanted this wedding image to be in keeping with that, signifying yet another journey ahead.

17/06/16 - The 1st outdoor wedding at Headlam Hall, Darlington with Alex & Darren.
I seem to be the first photographer that couples go to when a venue is new or tries something for the 1st time. Headlam Hall, have quite rightly decided to have outdoor ceremonies and this was a lovely alternative to the usual indoor weddings. Alex and Darren were so pleased that the weather held up enough despite a little drizzle and it was a perfect day for them. We got on great and they were fantastic and relaxed which is what you want for your wedding day. A lovely time, I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! Paul.
