Ellie and Jo at Horton Grange

I made my second visit this year to this special venue, Horton Grange for the wedding of Ellie and Joe. The weather decided it wasn't going to play ball for us but the beauty of this venue is that there are still little places to stay dry and get some great images. Ellie and Jo did things a little different in that they had a small intimate meal before the ceremony and then as Ellie was getting ready, the wedding guests turned up for a later wedding and straight through to the evening party. I have to say I fell in love with Ellie's hairstyle created by Lisa Cameron who is a friend of mine and a very talented wedding hairdresser.

Joe had booked the honeymoon and kept the location a secret until they were at the airport the next day...Croatia was the venue and I am sure they had a romantic and beautiful two weeks away! Here's a to a lovely couple and may all your dreams come true x

The last time I saw Kaitlin she was about 3....but she is certainly blossoming into a gorgeous young woman and we had great fun down at the beach on sunny evening last month. I recently got back on touch with Claire, her Mam, through the power of Facebook and I have also shot her little (and very cute) brother Harry.
If you would like a similar photoshoot, it's much cheaper than you think. The shoot is £50 and you can then buy your favourite prints in a variety of sizes - at very reasonable rates.

Tony and Andrea are married!

Tony and Andrea picked a glorious day and a very pretty church in Tynemouth to get married. I have to say I adored Andrea's fishtail dress and their guests were all extremely friendly, especially the cute flowergirls and pageboy, who adored their Uncle Tony! You could tell that the reception and party afterwards at The Caledonian Hotel in Jesmond was going to be so much fun.
I was asked to shoot the wedding ceremony and some formal photos afterwards in the church grounds and it always amazes me how fast the time goes but you can get some great photos in a short space of time. This is great news for anyone on a budget! I have done a few shorty weddings like this now and have a few more booked so they are obviously very popular. If you are intertested for the low price of £400 I can shoot for 3 hours. This includes prints and a DVD slideshow and a web gallery so you can share your photos far and wide.

Here are a few of my favourites from Tony and Andrea's wedding and I am sure you'll raise your glasses and wish this lovely couple a long and happy marriage. Cheers!
