Northumberland wedding

Weddings, hair, makeup, vicars . . . OK. so I’m a wedding photographer – and I tend to (but don’t exclusively) work in the North East of England. Often – I begin the day where the bride is getting ready. Some photographers like to pose pictures like the one below. I prefer to simply photograph ‘what’s happening’. The reason being – you can get a perfect picture of a girl having her hair done, or her makeup applied – eyes glancing into a strategically placed mirror etc. But the downside of posing that sort of thing – is that it …

Wedding Photographer Scottish Borders You’ll notice that I entitled this page ‘ Wedding photographer Scottish Borders’ well – that’s just to help you to find me if you’re in the Scottish Borders and you’re looking for a wedding photographer. We are a bit thin on the ground in places, and we tend to spend most of our time in the Scottish Borders, hiding under thistles, kilts, Sporrans and other Scottish paraphernalia. But all of that info doesn’t help much if you’d simply like to see some pictures ! so here goes ! Here are some rather fantabulous images from the …

wedding marquee Northumberland

Emma and Keith were married in the heart of Northumberland and had their wedding reception in a marquee on their farm.   The fabulous weather (and of course the fabulous countryside ) made for some pretty darned lovely wedding pictures.   We started the day at the church, did the churchy things, hello – seen you before somewhere – here’s a ring oh – I’ve got one for you too . . . ooh we’re married. That’s doing a great disservice to the church really – the church was in Mitford, it’s ancient – with medieval origins, its a flipping historic …

Otterburn Castle pictures Andrew and Sarah were married in a church, then went on to have their wedding reception at Otterburn Castle some pictures below !   Andrew is a seaman, a matelot, a man who roves the ocean waves, so that makes sense of the little note found on the wedding morning. It’s a really touching thought once you know the background to it. One bride, very pretty, being readied for the most important day of her life. A piper toots on those bagpipe things (they are very noisy things, I can tell  you !) and the guys arrive, …
