Janella + Rory's wedding photography from Holy Island + Doxford Barns, Northumberland.

21st April 2018

Methods: Romantic / Freeliving / Documentary / Natural

Jen and Rory's story started when Jen was a mere child visiting her grandma at Holy Island.  It held such a special place in her heart.  She met Rory in South Africa at Jaguar where he is a director, and set up camp for 9 months before moving to the USA.  Coming back to the magic of Northumberland though was Jen's dream.  What a wonderful day it was for such a wonderful couple.  In the speeches I felt like I got to know the inner Rory and it was great to see how his childhood made him the man he is today.  What a perfect couple and the images below say everything about them perfectly.  best wishes for the future.  Love_life+family-PL xx

We had a bit of rain on Karen and Gordons wedding and i wasn't sure if we were going to make it outside for a few moments.  Alas we managed to use the sheltered passage to the arch for some confetti and later on it did stop for us to get out.  Karen, wow a bride full of life and a great group of friends and family who loved her great spirit.  Completely complimented by Gordon's relaxed and committed demeanour.  But when they were together you could just see they were perfect and how they enjoyed  their time together.  Best wishes for the future.  Love_life+family-PL xx

Clare and Dean were friends of mine so i was delighted that they wanted me to be a part of their special day.  They had looked around too to see what other options there were but liked how natural my work was and they wanted something a bit more personal too.  Being their photographer for the day only brought me closer to them as a friend so I am glad of the experience and it was lovely to share some lovely moments with them both.  Thanks again guys!  Love_life+family-PL xx

 

Gemma + Daniel's wedding photography from Healey Barn Northumberland.

More wintery wedding pictures as we go to Northumberland for this wonderland wedding.  Daniel and Gemma complimented each other wonderfully.  The weather on their day was very cold, windy with intervals of snow so we used the grounds and indoor areas more.  It was lovely to see Gemma look so happy, Daniel was a great personality with a fun sense of humour and the venue fitted them perfectly.   I wish you both the very best in life and it was lovely to be part of your winter wonderland wedding.  Love_life+family-PL xx

With so much on the line, family, friends, suppliers bunched together to make this the wedding to remember.  It was truly an awesome day for all as we started with snowballing at the Baltic and ended with sparklers at the Vermont.  What an amazing feat this wedding really was.  It was unprecedented, unheard of and we knocked it out of the park.   A very special occasion indeed!  Love_life+family-PL xx

Ruth + Chris.  A very modern couple with a nicely rounded wedding within the formal setting of Woodhall Hotel.  The magic of the morning was what made this wedding for me, as Ruth transformed into a stunning bride she just looked so happy and comfortable.  We had bitterly cold weather so we whipped around as quick as we could with the various shots.  There was a nice mix of traditional, fun and creative feels in this wedding and I was happy to be a part of it.  Thank you guys for a fab day!  Love_life+family-PL xx

A really nice couple.   I genuinely connected with their sweetness as a couple which I feel you can see in the confetti shot here.  Nicole had a natural sophistication about her, and Chris and I had a few conversations where i felt like we connected.  The group were very lovely and attentive the Manor House was just a perfect setting for this wedding party.  I made 2 friends at this wedding and I hope to bump into them again in the future which is quite likely as they live fairly close.  Love_life+family-PL. xx

 

Emma + Chris's wedding photography from Healey Barn.

4th January 2018

Methods: Romantic / Rustic / Fun-Loving / Natural

Emma + Chris.  Two very fun and wonderful people who worked together very well.  I got along with Chis straight away, he was like an old college buddy, smart and witty and up for a laugh.  Emma was one of the girls, but a nice mix of sophisticated and very down to earth.  Being winter it pretty much rained all day, and we didn't want to get any marks on Emma's silk dress.  As the night went on though we decided to pop outside for a 5 second jaunt to get this shot below.  Thank you both for your hospitality and good nature.  I made 2 friends this day!

Spending New Years with a nice couple and a fab party was actually quite a memorable experience.  Georgi and Danny were good company and nice and down to earth with a lot of fun as the evening got on.  I really felt like one of the party by the end.  We had  little pop over to the Castle for a few shots and utilised the grounds at Askham despite quite a lot of rain. Thanks for having me guys, it certainly was a New Years I wont forget!  Love_life+family-PL. xx

With little light outdoors there was plenty of things we could do inside Lumley Castle.  Just a mere spotlight in the main entrance to the dungeon, i had a feeling it hadn't been done before.  Both Kirsty and Sean were good sports though following my direction we got loads of stuff, the natural work we got was really nice too.  Congrats guys!

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.

This wedding really was a perfect fit for my style and approach.  It was different and quirky and best of all we had a lot of fun.  Every wedding is so different and it really is about reading the couple and understanding their needs with a bespoke design.  Paul and Justine were a pleasure to work with and I am looking forward to seeing them again at future weddings.  xxx Paul.

Helen + Wayne's wedding photography from Eshott Hall.

1st July 2017

Methods: Romantic / Sophisticated / Rustic / Natural

Eshott Hall is a venue of many possiblities with both inside and outside ceremony areas.  With the right lighting you can really put your own stamp on this venue which is what we did with Helen and Wayne's rustic wedding.  Both doctors understanding the preciousness of time, so we didnt spend a lot of time getting couple shots but we aimed for quality.  Their natural love for each other and sense of humour allowed us to get something magical and never done before at Eshott.  Congratulations guys.

Heather + Ian's wedding photography from Doxford Barns.

25th May 2017

Methods: Romantic / Whimsical / Relaxed / Natural

Having already done a pre-shoot with Heather and Ian it was like old friends reuniting again at the wedding.  Every wedding I do at a repeat location gets a new wedding story.  Heather and Ians wedding was no different as we ventured to the secret meadow and took the very first shots there.  They were so relaxed and could just let go and be themselves so it was fun to get a few couple shots and individual portraits of the bride such as this image below.

Two very lovely people, Jennette and Philip.  I think sometimes you just know when 2 people work together well and these were both a great example of a couple who were very calm and at ease in each others company.  Im pleased that the weather stayed out and we got to have a little bit of an adventure out for piccies.

Holly + Neil's wedding photography from Doxford Barns.

19th November 2016

Methods: Epic / Discreet / Relaxed / Natural

We first met down at Whitley Bay at St Mary's lighthouse for a pre-shoot.  Upon meeting Holly & Neil, I realised that they really enjoy the high life and life in general which is great for my style of work.  I immediately knew that my natural work would be a hit but in the spur of the evening I approached them with a more epic piece.  It is something never done before too, exposing for the stars in the sky and lighting with a car behind and two sidelights whilst using 2 smoke grenades with a mix of green and white.  This is the end result and to be honest I do love the natural work that we got, but this is a once in a lifetime image.  2 lovely people with fantastic spirits and families to match!  Keep doing your thing guys you are awesome!

Anabelle + Gareth's wedding photography from Middleton Lodge, Yarm.

23rd October 2016

Methods: Epic / Discreet / Relaxed / Natural

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

Fran + Anil's wedding photography from Le Petit Chateau, Northumberland.

23rd October 2016

Methods: Epic / Discreet / Relaxed / Natural

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's 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.
