Becca & Matt are getting married this May at St. Mary's Church in Ponteland, followed by their reception at the wonderful High House Farm Brewery, Near Matfen. They are planning a relaxed wedding with some bright colours, and I'm very excited about being part of their wedding day.
For their pre-wedding photoshoot, the couple chose the fabulous seaside town of Tynemouth, about 20 minutes from Newcastle upon Tyne. Matt had proposed on Tynemouth beach when they were out for a walk (They are both into the outdoors, walking and cycling so this was a very fitting proposal!). We had planned to go onto the beach, but on the day, it was between 0-1 degree celsius and very windy, with patches of snow around (I sound like a weather girl now hehe!). The biting wind meant the beach would have been even colder, so we decided to go around the town instead.
Becca had chosen a lovely wooly hat and some really cute panda gloves (I actually have panda gloves too but was worried i'd be laughed at... well I need not have worried on that part - Turns out we all own animal-related hats too!)
We walked around the town, near Tynemouth Priory, then the market and metro stop. As it was such a dull day weather wise, I looked for colour around the town to really brighten up the photographs, and I also had my trusty purple umbrella to not only shield the wind and occasional snow flurry, to also add a bit more colour...
The props are mine and the love heart shaped snowball was lovingly sculptured by Becca & Matt.
Thank you so much to the lovely couple for braving the wind and freezing temperatures to have fun in front of the camera.
We found the park nearby which still had a touch of snow left, and had some fun with snowballs and got creative for 'the ring shot'.
We then popped into a lovely cafe for coffee and cake to warm up and chat over a few more wedding plans.
We all got on so well with lots of laughs, and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding!!
