Katie Byram Photography » Fun & relaxed female wedding photographer based in Northumberland / Newcastle Upon Tyne , covering the UK & Destination Weddings

Katherine and Andrew got married at St. Helens at Whitley Chapel, Northumberland, followed by a marquee reception on their farm.

They had a very laid back and personal day, the church service was conducted by the Vicar who the couple have known for many years, and who conducted a personal and moving service. The marquee was decorated by various family members and friends.

This is a local wedding tradition, where the gate is tied and the couple have to ‘pay the children’ (eg. by throwing coins over the gate) to be allowed through. Love it!

The relaxed farm theme was kept throughout the day – Katherine & the bridesmaids wore wedding wellies all day (yes the bride walked down the aisle in them!) and there were straw bales (not haybales- as I was corrected!) outside the marquee and even cow themed table numbers.

The couple travelled in a model T ford car, complete with a doggie dressed with a ribbon.

Over 18 months ago I met Robin & Faye to discuss their wedding, I can’t believe how fast that time flew by. Robin was a guest at Hannah & Sam’s wedding, which was one of the first weddings I photographed back in January 2010. I was thrilled that Hannah & Sam kindly recommended me to their friends.

Robin & Faye were planning their wedding in my hometown of Huddersfield, so I was thrilled to have a good excuse to return! Their wedding took place at All Saints Church in Clayton West, with the reception at Bagden Hall, in between Denby Dale and Scissett. I was thrilled that Vanessa Adams joined me as second photographer.

They chose bright and vibrant colours for their wedding of purple, colbalt blue and hot pink. They surprised their guests with a London bus from Red Bus Days to get them to and from the church.

They really wanted to have some laid back and quirky wedding photography, and we had lots of fun with both the group and couples photographs.

Way back last March, I organised a photoshoot with some other businesses at Marsden Grotto. One of these fabulous businesses was Bridal Designs Wedding Jewellery, who kindly lent some jewellery to dress the models.

Fast forward to a couple of months ago and Tracey, the jewellery designer, who I am regularly in touch with got in touch to say she wanted to commission me to take photographs of some new designs she had. As she is based down in Devon, I was thoroughly touched that she was willing to trust me to organise and photograph her jewellery without being there on the day, and without having a chance to make decisions on the shoot coming together…eeep!

Tracey was after a classic, elegant style, with both close up images to show off the jewellery and also some full length creative photographs on a ‘bride’.

Left in my hands I called in the experts – Becci (Hair By Becci), Make up Artist Dani.Mua, as well as contacting Kirkley Hall, a gorgeous Northumberland wedding venue who kindly provided use of their Oak Room as well as other locations around the building including the outside area, to photograph our model Marie dressed in a beautiful Madeline Gardner dress from YAP Bridal in Newcastle.

Here are some photographs from the day, including some behind the scenes photographs.

Kirstin & Neil planned a relaxed wedding at Ellingham Hall, near Alnwick in Northumberland last weekend. The venue welcomed guests to stay all weekend and enjoy themselves, and the couple & their family put in a huge effort to create a beautiful and fun wedding weekend for all.

Kirstin chose a Charlotte Balbier  wedding gown, and gorgeous TwoBirds bridesmaid dresses from YAP Bridal in Newcastle. I’ve only ever heard amazing things about the dresses & service at YAP Bridal and Jo the owner is a friend, so I knew their dresses would be amazing and they would be over the moon all around! Neil & his groomsmen wore burgundy suits and it all went so well together.

Kirstin carried a gorgeous white gypsophila bouquet with a hint of pink, and it featured a sentimental keepsake from her Grandparent’s wedding.  Tracey from Campbells Flowers created this simple but elegant bouquet, and the bridesmaids bouquets, and the men wore gypsophila buttonholes.

For this wedding, I was assisted by Debbie Stogden who was a massive help all day, and a really fun person to have around. A particular highlight was when I said “Debbie can you just block out the sun” whilst handing her a reflector. She said “But i’m only 4ft something?”…. Hilarious.

Kirstin & Neil are a lovely couple whose love and happiness for each other really shines thorough. They made their day really personal and thought of everything to look after their guests (Even flip flops for the evening so ladies could kick off their heels and have a dance!).

It was a pleasure to be there and I wish them an amazing mini-moon at Glastonbury (!!!)

Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Johnson on their marriage!

On to the wedding photographs…..

Where to start?! Well, Rebecca & Neil got married on last week at High House Farm Brewery near Matfen, Northumberland. Right from the start of wedding planning the couple decided they wanted a relaxed day, with close family & friends, and as little wedding formality as possible.

I was thrilled when they chose to book me as their wedding photographer, and was very much looking forward to their big day. The couple chose not to have bridesmaids, groomsmen, maid of honour or best man. They chose not to have formal speeches or traditional cutting of the cake.

Her Mum said “You look like you’ve just come out of the movies” and I had to agree!!

The flowers were created by Scentiments of Monkseaton, and looked and smelled divine! The bouquet was just so beautiful to look at I found it hard to stop photographing and get on with something else:-)

They chose to have a ‘first look’ instead of the tradition of not seeing each other before walking down the aisle. A first look is where the bride & groom meet up before the ceremony, to see each other for the first time in their wedding outfits. It’s a lot more common in America, but this was the first time I’ve ever had an opportunity to photograph one here in the UK. This was done just in front of myself. I set up the Neil, and then let Rebecca come around the corner. I stayed silent, and captured the candid moments on camera. It was an amazing moment and I am so honoured to have been there. We then spent some time prior to the ceremony capturing some relaxed couples photographs, and then the couple walked down the aisle to ‘One Day Like This’ by Elbow – what a fab choice of music!

We had a funny moment in the field with the horses. Above is Rosie, the friendly grey horse. She must have been hungry and decided that Rebecca’s bolero was a tasty treat! We ended up having to leave the field pronto, such a funny few minutes with the bride and groom! I’m not having much luck with animals at the moment:-)

After the wedding breakfast the bride & groom treated everyone to ice cream from nearby Vallum Farm. There was even wedding cake flavour and pimms sorbet! Perfect for a summer wedding.

The favours were from Sweet Sally Cinnamon which is another local company, little jars of Salted Caramel Sauce which people took home, and larger jars were used as ice cream topping, lovely!

The traditional cake cutting was something that Neil & Rebecca felt they did not want to do, I was trying to rack my brains for ideas, when I saw a post on another wedding blog where the bride & groom blew out candles on the cake to make a wish. Although this is normally reserved for birthday parties and suchlike, I proposed the idea to the bride & groom and suggested sparkly candles for a bit more fun. A wedding is all about starting off a new life together and I thought making a wish for the future on the wedding day with the cake was very fitting!

For evening entertainment and a few more silly photographs, the couple booked a funky photobooth with me. I have to say, it went down a storm and the guests loved every second of it!

Special thanks to Emma Bunting for the colourful bunting backdrop she created for me over a year ago now! Also Oh, Abigail who makes fabulous signs, and who I purchased the photobooth welcome sign from!

The couple danced the night away to Kelly & The Sensations who I’d heard lots of good things about but not seen before. They were fab! A couple of the band members may have even popped into the funky photobooth during their break!

A massive congratulations to Mr & Mrs Wood on their wedding, I’m so pleased they had an amazing time and didn’t feel so pressured by traditional wedding formalities, and had the day they dreamed of.

A big thank you for having me too, I loved every minute!
