Samantha & Michael | Matfen Hall, Northumberland


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.

Easter & Spring 2014 | Personal Work

There is a point every year when suddenly the months start to pass by more and more quickly.. and I realise I need to make even more of an effort to stay on top of everything and take a breath here and there.. This year it seems to be happening now. January and February seem to drag in some ways.. and suddenly it’s downhill to Summer. This April I’ve been lucky enough to shoot three gorgeous weddings and, with the Easter holidays and some sunny days, I’ve managed to get some time with my girl and take some personal photographs too. This is what April looked like for me…

Steph and Matt had a beautiful wedding at the fantastical Newton Hall in Northumberland..


Lindsey and Chris (and their twin-bump!) married at Redworth Hall in Darlington..10257017_661093240610922_8959491990211540226_oI was asked to help Emily Hannah Photography and popped over to the Lake District to shoot Emily and James’ wedding on her behalf.. (Full preview coming later today!)10285394_664953216891591_76955697526288707_oI‘ve been getting a helluva lot of use out of my Fujifilm Neo Instax.. I find these little mini-pics perfect to blu-tack all over my fridge.. The black and whites were taken on my Olympus Trip.OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-042OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-102OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-110OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-112 OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-036 OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-022OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-039OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-038

I made a little Easter stop-motion video from the Easter weekend.. which mainly revolved around food and family (as every holiday seems to!)

I went on a photographers’ trip away called Welcome Break.. a bi-product of the wonderful Emma Case Welcome Home workshop. I actually forgot to take many photos (oops..) but I guess sometimes it’s better to just down tools and have a few days peace and quiet away from it all (and sleeping in instead of rising with a girl who gets up before 6am..!)Welcome-home-workshop-welcome-break-talton-lodge-006 Welcome-home-workshop-welcome-break-talton-lodge-022 OLYMPUS TRIP 35MM CAMERA-026And it wouldn’t be a catch up post without a little Instagram update.. Lot of Easter, seeing friends, having my sister up to stay this weekend, a Liverpool hen do for my Bessie Louise who GETS MARRIED NEXT MONTH, and general odds and sods from pottering through life.

Mary & Mark | Preview

From meeting Mary a few times I knew their day was going to be totally ‘them’. I’d also heard amazing things about Newton Hall in Northumberland and knew it would make an amazing backdrop for photographs.. Mary looked amazing in her custom wedding dress, and shoes she designed herself, and the whole day was wonderfully relaxed as guests mingled in the Hall with cocktails, good food and good music. Some pretty serious disco dancing was happening as I left too.. Here is a little preview form their amazing day.Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-1 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-3 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-5 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-6 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-7 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-9 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-10 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-11 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-12 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-13 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-14 Newton-Hall-Wedding-Northumberland-15All rights reserved.

Helen & Ed | Hexham, Northumberland

thai-149Man, woman and dog. What a combination for a wedding. Add in a handmade dress, his ‘n’ hers converse, skull print touches, a drumming groom, surprise dance routines, a couple ‘pub’ quiz and CHEESE. Come on.. what more could you want?

Helen and Ed (and, well, Spud too) married in deep Northumberland in a marquee in Helen’s parents garden. They were such a wicked couple, totally into doing every last little thing their way, and the result was amazing. A day full of fun, laughter, friends, family, music, booze and good food.

Here are their photographs, you can read Helen’s write up of the whole day over on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings too. Do it all again Helen and Ed.. please? Helen & Ed-065 Helen & Ed-055 Helen & Ed-060 Helen & Ed-064 Helen & Ed-084 Continue reading
