Esme & Sam got married last weekend, after being together for over ten years. They had a personal, humanist ceremony surrounded by woodland. It took place at Angrove Park,  followed by a glamping reception with veggie food! I have known Esme for a few years as we both went to Sunderland University,  and she’s also a wedding photographer based in Warwickshire.

A few days before their wedding, they had some important paperwork to fill in to legalise their marriage ahead of their big day.

Esme asked if I’d be up for documenting this and then having a fun shoot afterwards to help get them used to being on the other side of the camera.

Of course I jumped at the chance! The short legal ceremony took place at Sunderland Civic Centre, and afterwards we took some photographs around the area, including in a dingy, flooded car park…and at the beach! Being a photographer herself, Esme thankfully trusted my vision. Her and Sam were more than happy to dodge the puddles and the cars in the car park. They even suggested creating their own smoke effects through the magic of vaping, haha!

Thanks so much for having me capture part of your wedding story and I hope you have an amazing honeymoon guys!!

Here’s some highlights of the day…

Emily & Emma are getting married in August at Healey Barn, a gorgeous Northumberland wedding venue. I met up with them a few weeks before for their pre-wedding shoot. We grabbed a coffee at Jesmond Dene House afterwards to run over their plans and got even more excited for their big day.

We scheduled the shoot for early evening, hoping for some nice light, and wow were we rewarded!!! It was actually so bright that we had to seek out a little shade, thankfully we found some underneath a tree right next to the waterfall at Jesmond Dene. It was very romantic!

The brides to be love to travel, so brought along a little paperweight compass, and Emma brought along one of her favourite books as a prop too. I couldn’t resist using it as a backdrop to capture their engagement rings.

Here are the highlights of their shoot…..

Not long to go until they are Mrs & Mrs.

high house farm brewery wedding, katie byram photography, relaxed photographer newcastle, northumberland wedding photographer, farm wedding northumberland, diy weddingPINIMAGERichard & 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!

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!)

I met with Lydia & her Mum before the day and we got on so well, you could just tell how excited Lydia was to be marrying Matt.

On the day itself, it turned out to be a very hot and sunny, with the early evening ceremony at 5pm being a relief to the wedding party as it was a little cooler!

Lydia & her bridesmaids got ready at nearby Doxford Hall Hotel, in a gorgeous little cottage. Her work colleagues were on hand to beautiful the bride & bridesmaids and it was a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

Her lace wedding dress was from Harrogate Bridal Collection, and green bridesmaid dresses from Two Birds. Lydia wore Valentino Rock Stud shoes.

The bouquets were created by Eliza Blooms.

Over at the treehouse, the guests were gathering for the outdoor ceremony on the decking under the trees. Matt was a mixture of excited and nervous, being supported by best man Jim making him laugh. The menswear came from Eric Spencer.

After some photographs on the rope bridges, it was time for speeches & food. Guests were treated to a fantastic Northumbrian meal, in the gorgeous twinkly light setting of the treehouse. The centrepieces were created with Jo Malone candles and flowers by Eliza Blooms. As you can imagine the whole venue smelled AMAZING!!!

The night flew by and soon it was time for some dancing. Bride & Groove Wedding DJs were outstanding, and got everyone up dancing especially to some 90’s tunes!

Just before heading off, the bride & groom took a few minutes for some twinkly light photographs then re-joined their guests to boogie the night away.

Lydia & Matt jetted off for their honeymoon to NYC afterwards – their first ever holiday abroad!!

Thanks so much for having me as your wedding photographer and a big congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Holgate <3

A special thanks to Victoria for being my second shooter at the wedding too!

Summerhill Bowling Club is one of my favourite little gems in Newcastle City Centre. It’s a bowling club & community centre with a real ‘village hall’ feel. It’s tucked away in some leafy streets very close to the Discovery Museum. It’s perfect for couples looking for a place to host a relaxed DIY wedding, and that’s exactly what Frankie & Simon wanted to celebrate their marriage.

Their ceremony took place at The Mining Institute, right by central station. They got married in the lecture theatre, followed by a drinks reception in the historic library. Frankie & Simon were really set on having lots of fun documentary images, telling the story of their day. This was perfect for me!

The bride & bridesmaids got ready at Hotel Du Vin, in a  a gorgeous room overlooking the River Tyne and the iconic bridges.

One of the bridesmaids read a brilliant poem out during the ceremony – “I wanna be yours”

The family had spent many, many hours crafting decor for the wedding reception, which took place in a big marquee as well as the bowling club itself.

It was so personal, beautiful and fun!

After afternoon tea style snacks, mingling, games and photos, it was time for the meal. The couple opted for sharing platters which really created a family style atmosphere. The cheesecakes were a big hit too!
