Wedding Photography in the North East
For today’s post whilst we are going a little generic I have decided to bring you a blog that puts some of the amazing wedding venues I have loved working at, all in one place. I feel extremely privileged working as a wedding photographer and even more so because I get to be involved in a couple’s special day. Photography isn’t just my career, it’s a huge part of my life as something I love, AND I love to be different.
What am I about?
Creative, unique and funky, all words I adore hearing when it comes to taking pictures so it doesn’t get much better than when I’m invited to meet clients at very different venues.
Wylam Brewery! Yes, you heard that right – a brewery. This phenomenal, once derelict building is situated in some truly amazing grounds in Newcastle. Based within the Palace of Art in Exhibition Park, the history is intriguing. The building was one of several erected at the start of the Great Depression in 1929 and designed to encourage local heavy industry. Having been empty for ten years it was taken over by Wylam Brewery and is now populated by many a visitor from beer enthusiasts to business functions and of course weddings. Intriguing building, lovely grounds and fantastic to photograph.
Let’s head over to 14th Century Crook Hall where you will find a building steeped in history. With a number of families residing here over the centuries the building has more recently been owned by Keith and Maggie Bell since 1995. The Bell’s have invested in renovations including the coach house and the famous garden maze. Saying your vows in the Medieval Hall is truly unforgettable and with some many formidable spots to take pictures this is certainly a great wedding venue.
How about something urban?
As previously mentioned, I absolutely love taking photographs of ‘different’ styled weddings and it doesn’t get more unique than As you like it based in Jesmond. This venue offers a wonderful hideaway called Frangipani and can seat up to 250 guests. Couples and guests can enjoy a private bar as well as an outdoor terrace. Having photographed here I found the urban feel really exciting, mirroring the emotions of the happy couple in question. From getting ready at home to the ceremony and into the evening, I was part of the wedding and ensured they had some wonderful memories to treasure.
Where does my inspiration come from?
As a creative person I am inspired by my surroundings and the people I meet. I enjoy getting to know the couples I will be working with and take on board their ideas and desires in order to provide them with something to treasure.
So there you have it. A snapshot of some of the wonderful venues here in the North East and an insight into my career and passion. There’s plenty more to show you and I will be sure to update again soon.
