The Pre Wedding Shoot with Newcastle Wedding Photographer

The pre wedding shoot is one of my favourite parts of my time together with my couples. This is  because it gives them a chance to be in front of my camera and experience what it is like before the wedding day.  This is going to make your wedding day experience feel smooth, relaxed and comfortable.

We also get to create something special together, documenting your engagement! the excitement of getting ready for marriage.  Being engaged is such a special time in your relationship and is often overlooked and overtaken with the planning of your wedding day.

I’m so excited to capture the only time in your life when you get to be each other’s fiancees. Get in touch and I will let you into my best secrets for getting the best out of your pre-shoot experience,

Wedding at Newcastle Civic Centre

This newcastle city center wedding had everything a spring wedding should have.  Beautiful light, warm but not-too-hot weather, a morning spent sipping champagne with friends, a touching low-key ceremony and big smiles.

 I was just delighted to make the journey small journey from the coast in to the city centre of Newcastle to photograph their day.

The wedding party met in the champagne bar of Fenwick, to raise a glass to the days celebrations.  The ceremony itself differed to a UK wedding as the groom and family members are led into the cathedral by the local priest before lastly ushering the bride and her father down the aisle too.  This wedding was very much about the big involvement of family and friends and on exit they all celebrated and danced down the aisle to the upbeat sound of violins and base guitars from the famous Jazz Manouche band, Cafe de l’Este trio…ranked no 1 in that region of France.

After shooting the wedding I can whole heartedly say they are both charming, vibrant, expressive, and so very loving.   It was a great pleasure to spend a few hours with them and their witnesses.  Thank you both for choosing me to photograph your wedding.  It was a great pleasure.
