Simon & Lisa got married last March at High House Farm Brewery, near Matfen, Northumberland.
I've decided to have a blog of these lovely spring wedding images as I can't believe this was almost a year ago, 27 degrees that day (My birthday too!) and at the wedding I photographed at the weekend, there was snow!
You may notice a new format to my blog posts, and that's because I've invested in an app that allows me to make lovely collages of images easily, that means more pretty blog posts and helping me stick to my new years resolution of blogging at least twice a week!
They chose a lemon colour scheme with spring flowers, Lisa carried a gorgeous daffodil bouquet.
I was absolutely honoured to be there on their wedding day, which was made even more special by the fact that they were the first ever couple to legally wed outside, in the haybarn, which had received it's licence just 2 days prior to the ceremony, so they jumped at this chance.
Kerry, the lovely registrar, seen above has become a familar face at many of the weddings I photograph in Northumberland, which is great...she's extremely friendly and accommodating with couples, she has a genuine love for her job and is a pleasure to work alongside.
The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, with a blazing hot sun beating down outside but the barn kept everyone nice and cool!
After some relaxed group shots in the field, we found Rosie the horse wanted to join in with the romantic couple photographs!
Heather from High House Farm managed to persuade the farmer to let us use his tractor for some wedding images, as the couple have a keen interest in all things countryside and outdoors and wanted to bring this into their wedding images.
The couple had an intimate, relaxed lunch with their family and friends, and had the table in a horseshoe format so that everybody could be together. They made some short speeches and then completely shocked me after their cake cutting with the lovely gesture of surprising me with a birthday cake and getting their guests to sing happy birthday to me...something I will never forget and I think I could have also fried an egg on my face !!
Simon and Lisa danced the night away to their evening entertainment and had the whole family up dancing in the brewery.
As it began to get dark I went to take some low light photographs once the candles were lit... love the glow!
I absolutely loved this very memorable day, and am delighted that we all share in a special date, it was one of my favourite birthdays ever getting to spend it with this lovely couple and their family, happy smiley faces and just an amazing day.
