Well, what a quirky and unique wedding this was!
Nichola & Ciaran flew in from Australia to get married in Nichola's hometown of Newcastle upon Tyne. The couple met in Sydney whilst Nichola was backpacking over there. Ciaran, who grew up in Australia, has a huge love of Liverpool United, which featured in the wedding details, he also wore LFC socks and cufflinks.
Ciaran & his groomsmen got ready at the Vermont Hotel in Newcastle. Victoria from Whiteleaf Photography was my second shooter for this wedding and she captured the grooms preparations.
They chose a late afternoon ceremony, taking place just as the museum was closing to the public for the day. They chose a bright orange colour theme for their flowers, and the bridesmaid dresses from Ted Baker were rather unusual.
The Great North Museum (Hancock Museum) is a unique museum in the centre of Newcastle. It is very much focused on natural history, such as the Living Planet exhibition, and a lifesize t-rex, as well as local exhibits on Hadrian's Wall.
After the ceremony everyone made their way outside for some group shots on the steps, followed by some bride & groom photos with the t-rex and other museum exhibits - so much fun!!!
The couple chose a Liverpool United theme for their table names and plan and very personal favours. A stubby holder (beer holder - very popular in Australia! ) with a can of beer in. The stubby holder was personalised with the couples names and wedding date, maps of the UK & Australia and 'To have and to hold, and to keep your beer cold' - very cute and quirky! Love it!
