Hailey and Neil married at the beautiful Eslington Villa in Gateshead – a little green haven in the middle of a busy town. These two, and their little girl Ruby, were full of smiles and love all day – it was a real pleasure to be part of such a relaxed and family-orientated day. Here are a few previews…STP-0001 STP-0002 STP-0003 STP-0007 STP-0008 STP-0009 STP-0010 STP-0011 STP-0012 STP-0013 STP-0014 STP-0015 STP-0016 STP-0017 STP-0018 STP-0019 STP-0020 STP-0021 STP-0022 STP-0023 STP-0024 STP-0025 STP-0026 STP-0027 STP-0028 STP-0029 STP-0030 STP-0031 STP-0032 STP-0034 STP-0033 STP-0035 STP-0006 STP-0036 STP-0004 STP-0005 STP-0037 STP-0038 STP-0039 STP-0040 STP-0041 STP-0042 STP-0043 STP-0044 STP-0045 STP-0046 STP-0047 STP-0048 STP-0049 STP-0050 STP-0051 STP-0052

Helen & Colin | The Baltic, Newcastle

Helen & Colin-279Ahh.. it was so lovely to spend the day with Helen, Colin and bump while they tied the knot. They married amongst only very close friends and family in a wonderfully relaxed and intimate day, then celebrated with drinks on the quayside and a meal at the top of The Baltic, overlooking Newcastle over the river. I always think it’s so special when a couple get married while they’re expecting, it’s the beginning of a marriage and marks the start of a family all in one. Here is how it looked..

Life lately | Personal

So.. it’s March already. This year has had a much welcomed quieter start for me and my little family. There’s been catching up with friends, catching up with each other, hibernating under blankets on the couch, lots of cooking, and generally relishing the simpler things. It’s going to be another chaotic year (for reasons which you’ll read about below!) and I’ve been consciously trying not to overdo everything so far this year, and have loved having a few days doing absolutely nothing at all.IMG_8650I’m going to try and put this without sounding like one of ‘those’ people.. but on top of enjoying a few simpler pleasures, my husband and I decided to try and actually look after ourselves a bit more this year and set a better example for our girl. Health kicks in the past for us have often been short-lived.. we are probably the worst people I know for snacking on the couch with beers and wine.. but we are hoping to make some decent long-term changes and feel the benefits this year. I’ve a long way to go but I’m hoping to be nice and strong by the time wedding season kicks in!

IMG_8750Right.. the big thing this year is moving house. Anyone who knows me will be thinking “Again?!” as we’ve been house-hopping for quite a while now.. But this time we’re hoping it’s for good as we’re buying for the first time. We are leaving much-loved Leeds back to North Yorkshire at the beginning of next month, and will be moving in with my (very kind and very patient!) in-laws for a few months in between. In a sort of sad farewell we’ve been trying to make the most of what this wonderful city has to offer while we’re still here in between packing everything up for storage.

IMG_9111AND.. in other news.. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few exciting photography commissions this year.. pushing me out of my comfort zone. I’ve really, really loved it. Here are little previews from the Chilli Cake Deli..

Samantha & Michael | Matfen Hall, Northumberland

matfen-hall-wedding-northumberland-wedding-photographer-426

A few weeks before their wedding, I met Sam and Michael in their living room and poured over the scrapbook of wedding snippets and ideas that Sam had put together.. then spent the remaining weeks looking forward to what promised to be an amazingly styled, warm, lovingly hand-made wedding. It didn’t disappoint.. Sam and Michael are such a wonderfully welcoming couple, and I loved being part of their day. Sam looked out of this world in her fishtail gown with hand-painted shoes, Michael looked dapper in both his golf gear and his wedding suit, and the whole day was full of joy, laughter, tears (looking at you, here, Michael!) and love. Here are some favourites from their wedding at Matfen Hall in Northumberland last Summer.

Amy & Joel | Crow Hill, Marsden

Amy & Joel-594

Meet Amy and Joel. This lovely pair married at Crow Hill on a wet July day, but nothing took away from how wonderful it all was. Amy herself is in weddings and events so it came as no surprise that her wedding looked so beautifully styled – she had thought of every last detail and to see all her hard work come together was amazing.. But the most amazing thing was watching these two share their day with wonderful friends and family – everyone there was really rooting for them and it was a real celebration from start to finish. Here are their wedding pictures..

Hollie & Davide | Snod’s Edge, Northumberland

Hollie & Davide-487Hollie and Davide really do know how to plan a wedding.. and how to make it one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. So much attention to detail, care and effort went into making their day completely beautiful and a real celebration of them and everything they love. I knew Hollie was going to have an amazingly hand-crafted and vintage inspired day but seeing it all come together and how joyous they were alongside their guests throughout the whole day really made my heart sing. They can put it all better than I can and you can read their words and thoughts about their wedding over on Love My Dress.

These two, quietly and contentedly perfect for each other, began their journey on a hot May day in deep Northumberland. Here are the photos to tell the story..

Rosie & Jon | Preview

I don’t really know where to begin to tell you about Rosie & Jon’s wedding.. It’s been completely different for me shooting and editing a couple when you know them well as part of your family, have watched their family grow over the past few years, get engaged, moving houses, spent holidays with them..  knowing everything that has preceded them in their relationship before standing up together in front of kiddywinks, family and friends and saying their vows.

We all travelled over to Italy, landed in Rome (survived driving a hire car on the ring road), climbed a winding road high up into the hills to find Arpino, spent nights in the piazza drinking wine, ate antipasti, watched the kids running around (until the wee hours).. All topped off with a fantastic wedding surrounded by dozens of family and friends on both sides..

Here is a small preview from Rosie and Jon’s wedding.
