Relaxed & fun pre-wedding shoot at Ellingham Hall

Leon & Gina got married in an intimate celebration at Ellingham Hall near Alnwick back in the summer. We met up a few weeks before the big day and they chose to have their pre-wedding shoot at Ellingham Hall itself in and around the grounds so we could get to know each other a little more.

They are extremely relaxed in each others' company and were a dream to photograph :)

Aleisha & Nick got married in December at The Vermont Hotel  in Newcastle, in the Sky Lounge, overlooking the city. They had a very stylish wedding,  and had put so much thought and care into making their guests feel welcome in their marriage celebrations. Here's the story of their big day.

The Vermont Hotel sits overlooking the Quayside in Newcastle with spectacular views. It's recently been refurbished and is an amazing location for a chic city wedding.

 The Secret Garden Florist in Jesmond provided the flowers for the day, which were in soft pinks and cream.

Aleisha got her stunning Justin Alexander dress from Bridal Wish on Blagdon Hall Estate. It had some amazing crystal detail on the side adding that extra bit of sparkle. Her veil also came from Bridal Wish.

The bridesmaid dresses, in a dusky pink colour, came from Debenhams. Each bridesmaid had a slightly different style of dress.

She wore No1 By Jenny Packham jewellery and made her own pair of custom Converse online, incorporating her love of leopard print had to be done! 

The brides sister is a talented hairdresser- Kara Scott Hair Stylist  and kept her cool whilst styling the hair of the entire bridal party, and herself, and being a bridesmaid! I was extremely impressed.

The talented Irene MUA  was the make up artist for the wedding and was so lovely.

Nick was very chilled out all morning, even popping into the Bridge Hotel opposite the wedding venue to watch as much as the NUFC match as him and his groomsmen could.

After the ceremony guests braved the cold for drinks and canap├ęs on the roof - there's not many other places in Newcastle with such an amazing view so it was well worth it!

The reception took place in the ballroom at The Vermont. The decor was provided by Balloon Bedlam  who but in an enormous amount of work to make the room spectacular!

The couple hired the giant LOVE letters from Coco Luminaire which really finished off the room.
The bride had yankee candles dotted around the room with different wedding or love related names.

Saltburn Pre-wedding shoot (Sarah & Dan)

Sarah & Dan got married in October at Raithwaite Hall Estate, and had their pre-wedding shoot at Saltburn beach a few weeks before. They met because of this little guy here, Murphy...after Sarah offered to look after him for Dan whilst he was away, so Murphy was a big part of both their pre-wedding shoot and their wedding. 

Here's a few highlights of the shoot!
