Richard & Julie met in 2014 whilst on a charity trek around Iceland for St. Oswalds Hospice. Infact they met whilst waiting for the bus to get them to the airport for the trek and have been together pretty much ever since! I loved their story and was very happy when they booked me for their wedding at High House Farm Brewery.
High House Farm Brewery is one of my favourite Northumberland Wedding Venues. It’s surrounded by rolling countryside near to Matfen Village. Their staff are always so friendly and welcoming, it’s like visiting extended family when I photograph there!
Julie & her bridesmaids (her daughter & Richard’s daughter) got ready at Close House, in the gorgeous courtyard cottages.
The ladies from Total Beauty were on hand to make the bride & bridesmaids look and feel amazing.
Julie wore a stunning floor length lace Pronovias wedding dress.
The bouquets and all the floral details from the day were created by Alexanders Flowers.
Over at High House Farm Brewery, a nervous Richard was awaiting the bridal party.
The ceremony was rather emotional, and also slightly amusing, as a rogue chicken insisted on escorting Julie down the aisle!
After the ceremony, guests mingled in the sunshine with drinks and canapés.
Soon it was time to head into the marquee, so beautifully decorated with pops of colour from the flowers by Alexanders Flowers .
The favours were very delicious bars of fudge from The Northumberland Fudge Company. (I got to take one home too, thanks Julie!)
The rest of the afternoon flew by with lots of fun and laughter.
We took the opportunity for a few more couples photographs before it was time for the first dance.
We bumped into Bride & Groove Wedding DJs again! They got everyone up dancing again. Can’t recommend these guys enough!
A big congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Waters and I hope you have a fabulous honeymoon as well!
Big thanks once again to Victoria Robinson for second shooting with me.
