I was thrilled when Alexis got in touch to book me for her wedding to Eric, at the Alnwick Treehouse. It is an absolutely magical venue set within the trees next to Alnwick Gardens with so much character.
The couple had an intimate wedding with a bigger one planned in New York for later.
Their two dogs were a big part of the day, as this was a key part of how they got together. They met walking their dogs in a park in New York city when Eric was working over there. They even walked down the aisle!
The gorgeous flowers were from C&C Florals and featured creams and soft pinks and purples.
The amazing Lisa Cameron did the hair for the bride, bridesmaid and mother of the bride. Dani.MUA was the fabulous make up artist for the day. It was lovely to work with these two talented wedding suppliers again.
The couple hired the treehouse exclusively so that they could have a quiet, intimate celebration, and the ceremony itself took place under a beautiful fairy light arch that is a key feature in the treehouse restaurant itself.
The couple welcomed their guests to the reception with mojitos in and around The Potting Shed.
Just as we were about to do the couples photographs torrential rain came out of no-where. I quickly changed my initial idea and lighting set up, and borrowed a groomsmen to hold a brolly over me and my kit (thanks for that!), and backlit the couple with flash, freezing all of the raindrops. I think this photograph would look awesome printed really large!
To fit with the American tradition, the couple had their first dance prior to their meal.
Thanks so much to the couple for having me and I wish you lots of luck and happiness for your future together!
