Wedding Stories

 

On your day you will always be different to a regular day.  Your adrenaline will be flowing and your spirit will be at an all time high.  So I have to be adaptable on your day.  As I fit into your needs and treasure your unique personalities, I will see a story unfolding in front of me.  I love meeting people, whether a little shy, a little proud or a little loud, I want you to be yourselves.  What better story is there than one thats just yours?

 

 Let's rock your story!

Janella + Rory's // Wedding-Storyboard 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

Rachel + Edward were a lovely couple, favouring that calm but fun vibe.  We had some very interesting light to play with so got a few cool shots that have never been done before at this venue.  The day was a scorcher and Rachel and Edward enjoyed some great times with friends and family.  Thank you both for letting me a part of your day.  Best wishes for the future.  Love_life+family-PL xx

Stephanie + Jonathan's // Wedding-Storyboard from Middleton Lodge.

Methods: Sophisticated / Stylish / Natural

 

Middleton Lodge, is one of those venues that is just perfect for my style.  There is so much I can do at this venue which has never 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.

Ashleigh + Lee's // Wedding-Storyboard from Healey Barn.

Methods: Romantic / Woodland / Fun-Loving / Natural

 

Ashleigh and Lee were such a dream to work with.  So accommodating and pleasant I felt like an honoured guest!  For two very smart and genuine people it was rather funny to see their childhood pictures passed around during the speeches.  We mad a quick jaunt to the woods for around 5 minutes but we didn't need much more as by this point we were already good friends.  Thank you both so much for being lovely and I can't wait to get everything to you in time before xmas! Paul. xx

Louise and Lee certainly were a lovely couple to be around, Louise was a very natural and lovely person and Lee a very charasmatic and fun person, the combination of them both along with their dog Murphy were a great family together.  On the day there were laughs all round and nice quiet moments where we escaped to the beach.  I made some lovely friends during this day, best of luck for your future together!  Paul.

Olivia + Matthew's // Wedding-Storyboard at Le Petit Chateau.

Methods: Fun / Sophisticated / Natural

Le Petit Chateau is getting to be a regular place for my work, it certainly suits the style of venue.  Olivia and Matthew were a very natural couple with a huge group of friends.  Actually when i think back to the fun we had it would be awesome to see them again in a future wedding.  A great selection of family and friends.  It was great working with you guys. xx  Paul. 

Rachel + Andrew's // Wedding-Storyboard from Woodhill Hall.

Methods: Whimsical / RocknRoll / Natural

Rachel and Andrew were a very nice and down to earth couple who had full trust in my work.  With such a scorcher of a day we were spoilt for choice for opportunities.  A lovely crowd in attendance and a few guests who knew of my work put a smile on my face. The whimsical wonderland wedding came true for Rachel and Andrew and what a wonderful day it was!

Charlotte + Zach's // Wedding-Storyboard at Hexham Winter Gardens.

Methods: Whimsical / RocknRoll / Stylish

Charlotte and Zach booked me about 2 years ago so it was a while since we last spoke.  We got so many natural and beautiful images that we decided to get a stylish picture that hadnt been done before at the venue. All the guests were a real blast and I made a few friends on the day it was a great wedding and a beautiful setting!  xx

Rachel + Jonathan's // Wedding-Storyboard at Bamburgh Castle + Doxford Barns.

Methods: Elegant / Sophisticated / Natural

Rachel and Jonathan were a very nicely suited couple, I think in their own words during the speeches they said that they understood each other more than anyone else did.  Just watching their body language they really were as one, they perfect. xx

Anabelle + Gareth's // Wedding-Storyboard from Middleton Lodge, Yarm.

Methods: Sophisticated / Fun-Loving / 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-Storyboard from Le Petit Chateau.

Methods: Sophisticated / RocknRoll / Natural

Le Petit Chateau 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.  There were a few celebs in attendance so fingers crossed on the blog!  It was great working with you guys and lovely to see how much you were both in love.  Congrats again!  Paul.

 

Justine + Paul's // Wedding-Storyboard at the Woodhorn Museum.

Methods: Fun / Quirky / Natural

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-Storyboard at Eshott Hall.

Methods: Rustic / Romantic / 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.

Louise + Lee's // Wedding-Storyboard from Doxford Barns.

Louise and Lee certainly were a lovely couple to be around, Louise was a very natural and lovely person and Lee a very charasmatic and fun person, the combination of them both along with their dog Murphy were a great family together.  On the day there were laughs all round and nice quiet moments where we escaped to the beach.  I made some lovely friends during this day, best of luck for your future together!  Paul.

Holly + Neil's // Wedding-Storyboard from Doxford Barns.

Methods: Natural / Sophisticated / RocknRoll

 

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!

Sarah + Kevin's // Wedding-Storyboard from Healey Barn.

Methods: Romantic / Elegant / Natural

Some of the sunsets at Healey Barn are just outstanding, and with a sunset around the corner I took Sarah and Kevin to the perfect spot to capture it at its best.  Overlooking the valley in this secret location made this picture not only special but unique to Sarah and Kevin.  They had a lovely day and this was the perfect way for them to end it.  Best of wishes, Paul. xx

Paris + Lee's Beach // Wedding-Storyboard from Doxford Barns.

Methods: Sophisticated / Fun-Loving / Natural

 

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.!

Melissa + Eddie's Tipi // Wedding-Storyboard from their farm home, Hepscott Manor.

Methods: Rural / Fun-Loving / Natural

 

This was my first Tipi wedding and wow was it fun!  Mel and Eddie were completely awesome and the amount of work they had put into the setting in their home at Hepscott Manor was immense.  They had tipis, bands a large ceremony and a variety of sheep, cows, horses and dogs overlooking the wedding.  It weas basically like a really cool mini glastonbury party, with no expense spared.

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.
