2017 has been my busiest year yet with more weddings than ever! I have been back to old favourite venues such as Newton Hall, Matfen Hall, Beamish Hall Hotel and Crook Hall and Gardens as well as some exciting new places for me; the beautiful Hexham Winter Gardens (more weddings here please!), Eshott Hall and The South Causey Inn. I also have become a recommended supplier to Doxford Barns and will be back there several times over the next year.

There have been so many lovely weddings and so much love and happiness, going through all the photos from the year to pick my favourites is so hard and it reminds me of how lucky I am to work with such amazing couples and be a part of the happiest days of their lives.

On a personal front, this year has been wonderful as I have been blessed with a new addition to my family. Baby Penny arrived safely this December and I would like to thank all of the couples whose weddings I attended with a baby bump for not being put off by the idea of a pregnant photographer, you are all wonderfully kind and considerate.

So happy New Year to you all, I can’t wait to be back celebrating love in spring 2018! Here are my favourite photos from 2017 I hope that you enjoy them as much as I have.

Sam and Ally were married at Beamish Hall Hotel on a beautiful Autumnal day in October. This was one of the most relaxed and fun weddings I have been to and such fun to photograph. They used the time of year for inspiration for their decorations with pine cone place settings, a leaf guest book, emerald green touches and pheasant feathers in the bouquet! I love the light at this time of year and we were lucky to get a break in the drizzle to get some beautiful shots in the soft evening light after the wedding breakfast. Here is my selection of favourites from the day.

I am very happy to be sharing the wedding of Grant and Katie at Lumley castle from back in September 2016. It was my first time photographing at Lumley and what an amazing venue! The couple used Grant’s Scottish roots to great effect with a piper at the Church and a brilliant ceilidh that kept the guests dancing well into the night!

Katie looked absolutely stunning in her lace dress, and the happiness of the couple and their families was so apparent throughout the day it was a joy to be a part of. Here is a selection of my favourite images from the day.

It was a beautiful September day for Helen and Robert’s wedding at Crook Hall and Gardens in Durham City. Such a perfect venue for a small, intimate wedding. The gardens looked beautiful and we were spoilt for choice for the photos.

What a fun and happy day it was, it really made me smile putting together this selection of my favourite images. I love the long sleeved lace dress (with so many buttons!) and that Helen added some family heirloom broaches to her bouquet for her something old, borrowed and blue.
