Wedding photography at Backworth Hall

Louise & Daniel

Backworth Hall


Louise & Daniel booked us for wedding photography at the amazing Backworth Hall in Newcastle Upon Tyne. They were to get married at a beautiful church in Earsdon then go on to Backworth hall for their reception and evening celebrations. 

We had been talking to the couple leading up to their wedding for around 2 years as they booked well in advance to secure their date, and they were very excited for their big day!

Getting Ready
Louise got ready at her mums home with her bridesmaids, mum and dad, and her daughter Maya. 

When we arrived everyone was getting prepared for the big day! Hair and makeup artist was in full flow doing a great job of making everyone look stunning, and then they went across to the hairdresser’s seat for some fabulous pin up hair styles. The flowers had arrived with bouquets and button holes all with gorgeous gypsophelia.

The couples little girl Maya was having a great time and getting excited! She had her hair done too and also had a sneaky try of mum’s dress. This is a great photo to catch with your daughter and give her when she gets married in future years herself.

Louise’s mum helped her into her gorgeous gown which was a beautiful princess dress, with shoes and jewellery added her bridal look was complete.  Her dad was to walk her down the aisle and Louise helped him get his cufflinks on. With everyone ready to go they headed off to the vintage car to be whisked off to the church.

The Ceremony
Daniel was already at the church greeting guests and not looking too nervous which was great to see. He had his groomsmen around for support and they were doing a great job. We grabbed a few shots of them together before Louise arrived. 

Louise arrived with her father in a gorgeous vintage car, when they entered the church there was a lovely sign for louises dad to read. 

The couple made their wedding vows to each other and exchanged wedding rings, Maya was having a wander around during the ceremony which caused a few giggles all round! After managing to kneel in her dress for the blessings Daniel was finally allowed kiss his bride and the register was signed to make everything official!

They walked back up the aisle as Mr and Mrs Emptage together looking so happy!
Everyone headed out to the front of the church for a group photograph and some confetti throwing, and then all headed off to the next venue- Backworth Hall after we took a few shots of the couple with the beautiful car.

On arriving at Backworth Hall there was some time before the wedding breakfast was to be served so we worked our way through the couple’s list of family formal photographs using the steps to the hall as a backdrop. This meant all the formalities were taken care of before the meal so the rest of the day the guests could relax.

The Romantic Couple’s Photographs
After the family photos were finished we whisked the bride and groom away for a short time to grab some gorgeous couple’s shots before the meal. Back worth Hall has some amazing surroundings so we didn’t need to go far for some beautiful images! 
Maya joined in for some of the photo and had fun playing with our vintage parasols with her mummy. How cute do they look together! We had a lot of fun with Daniel and Louise doing their shots and they look so happy throughout them you can tell they did too! 

The Speeches
The room was set ready for the meal and looked amazing with the cake set up and purple accents through the room. Guests came in and took their seats for the speeches to begin. We see more and more speeches done before the meal so that they are out the way and people can enjoy the meal without the stress of a speech hanging over them! 
Louise’s dad was up first and gave a great speech even if he did embarrass Louise and one of two of her friends with some funny stories! 

Daniel went next and gave a heartfelt emotional speech and gave gifts of thanks out. The star of the show was the best man who wrote a great speech and gave out pictures to embarrass Daniel who found it hilarious! Guests were laughing from start to finish so he did a great job!  

After the speeches we then took a break to let everyone enjoy their meal and we got to work on a selection of the images from the day so far so they could be ready to go up on our projector for the evening reception guests to see!  We love our Image Projector service and it goes down so well with guests as it’s a wonderful way to include evening guests in what happened during the day time and a great talking point for everyone too, as well as giving the Bride and Groom a sneaky peak at what’s to come!  

Our lovely friend Craig from Tom foolery Photobooth arrived to set up his fun photo booth for the evening as well, always nice to catch up with other friendly suppliers!

Party time!
After the meal the guests made their way to the bar areas to relax while the room was set up ready for the evening celebrations. After a quick cutting of the cake was over with Mr & Mrs Emptage took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife, all the guests were watching as an exploding balloon above the dance floor was burst and rained bright sprinkles of confetti over the couple and then others joined them on the dance floor. 
The photobooth had people queuing up for a go at some Marryoke too! The party really started then and everyone was having a great time partying on the dance floor. The night was in full flow when we left! There was a lot of partying on the dance floor with everything from spinning to The Robot being busted out!

Overall it was an amazing day for everyone and we had a brilliant time photographing the whole wedding. We hope they love their photos as much as we enjoyed taking them! Thanks to Louise and Daniel for choosing us to photograph their special day and allowing us to capture their memories to treasure for years to come, we loved it!  

We wish you all the best for the future together as husband and wife!

Wedding photography at the Malmaison Newcastle

Amy & Mark

Malmaison, Newcastle upon Tyne



Amy and Mark booked us for wedding photography at the gorgeous Mal Maison Hotel in Newcastle Upon Tyne, which is right on Newcastle Quayside in stunning surroundings. Originally they had us booked for just their evening reception as they were booked to get married in Jamaica. Sadly Amy’s nana wasn’t well enough to fly and Amy couldn’t even think about saying ‘I Do’ without Nana by her side for the day. So the wedding was brought to the Mal Maison and held earlier than scheduled.

Getting Ready
When we arrived the room was full of activity getting everyone prepared for the big day! There was a makeup artist doing a great job of making everyone look stunning, and then they went across to the hairdresser’s seat for some fabulous pin up hair styles. 
Amy had all her bridesmaids with her, along with her mum, nana and her daughter Emmy. 
There were plenty drinks flowing and everyone was getting very excited. 
Nick popped across to the guy’s room to see Mark and his groomsmen for a few shots too, they were all in great spirits and Mark didn’t look nervous at all. 

Amy moved into a different room to get her dress on so there was more space and it was cooler as it was even though it was only early April it was pretty warm. The bride was starting to have quite a few nerves kicking in, and the bridesmaids were getting emotional so there were tears all round! A good job Laura was around with a pocketful of tissues to hand round! 

The bridesmaids helped Amy into her dress and fastened the back for her. With some amazing shoes added and her beautiful floor length veil attached she was ready to go. She made a stunning bride- Mark is a lucky man! We loved her bouquet of beautiful flowers too!
The nerves were really starting to get to Amy, she was very anxious to get the ceremony over with. After a sit down and a chat with Nana she was feeling a little better and it was time to head to the ceremony room. 

The Ceremony
The guests were all in their seats waiting for the arrival of the bridal party, and Mark was at the front with his best man.

The room looked great and there were the big illuminated initial letters in the corner supplied by the fab Coco Luminere. The bridesmaids walked down the aisle first, and then Amy entered the room, accompanied by her Nana who was to walk her down the aisle. The couple made their wedding vows to each other and exchanged wedding rings, Amy had been so nervous about making mistakes in the vows it ended up with giggles and laughter all round! Mark got to kiss his bride and the register was signed to make everything official!
They walked back up the aisle as Mr and Mrs Anderson and were showered in confetti as the yleft the room.

Everyone headed out to the front of the hotel for the family and group photographs, with the sun shining we got the formalities over with quickly so guests could then relax and enjoy the rest of the day. 

The Romantic Couple’s Photographs
After the family photos were finished we whisked the bride and groom away for a short time to grab some gorgeous couple’s shots. The location of the Mal Maison Hotel makes it perfect for your wedding photographs as its got so many landmark sights on its doorstep! 
We took advantage of the surroundings and went across the millennium bridge and along the edge of the quayside with the background showing things like the Tyne Bridge, The Sage, and The Baltic. With these pictures there is definitely no mistaking where they got married! 

An amazing couple looking so in love- they breezed through their photos having a lot of fun and really enjoying themselves! 

The photo of Amy holding her bouquet in the air sums it all up!
We also had some more confetti throwing on the bridge and did a bit of daft posing with the groomsman and the bridesmaids for a bit of fun!

The Speeches
The room was set ready for the meal and looked amazing with the cake set up and pretty floral centrepieces. Guests came in and took their seats for the speeches to begin.
Amy’s mum gave the first speech with some lovely words and a lot of emotion- clearly proud of the couple.

The groom took his turn next and his speech got some great reactions form the bridal party, telling stories of him and Amy getting together and having the children. He then chose this speech to drop a big bombshell to Amy that he had bought a new puppy and it would be ready to be homed with them in the coming weeks. Now they had previously had chats about getting a dog and Amy didn’t want one. Amy looked slightly horrified and unsure on if it was a joke or if he was serious. He was most definitely serious and his best man confirmed he had! (NB- since the wedding Amy told us now she’d had time to come round the idea she was actually excited for the new family pet to arrive! Phew!)
Best man Lewis was next to speak. he had some hilarious stories about him and mark growing up and the antics that they got up to. He did a brilliant job and got a lot of laughter form the crowd!

After the speeches we then took a break to let everyone enjoy their meal and we got to work on a selection of the images from the day so far so they could be ready to go up on our projector for the evening reception guests to see!  We love our Image Projector service and it goes down so well with guests as it’s a wonderful way to include evening guests in what happened during the day time and a great talking point for everyone too, as well as giving the Bride and Groom a sneaky peak at what’s to come! 

Party time!
After the meal the guests made their way to the bar areas to relax while the room was set up ready for the evening celebrations. There was a sweet buffet, a twinkly LED dance floor and the beautiful light up letters in the room, and our projector was up displaying the images for guests to see. It all came together beautifully.

After a quick cutting of the cake was done Mr and Mrs Anderson took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife, all the guests were watching as one of our confetti cannons was set off and rained bright sprinkles of confetti over the couple and then others joined them on the dance floor. The kids were running round having lots of fun. The party really started then and everyone was having a great time partying on the dance floor. The night was in full flow when we left with and looked like it was set to continue into the early hours- good job there was a basket of flip flops out for guests to use when their heels made their feet hurt from dancing!

Overall it was a lovely day for everyone involved and we had a brilliant time capturing the whole wedding. We hope they enjoy their photos as much as we enjoyed taking them! Thanks to Amy and Mark for choosing us to photograph their special day and allowing us to capture their memories to treasure for years to come, we had a blast!  

We wish you all the best for the future together as husband and wife!

Wedding photography at the Quality hotel, Boldon

Ashleigh & John

Quality hotel, Boldon


Ashleigh and John met us when were exhibiting at The George Washington Hotel & Golf Club in Washington a while ago. They booked us soon after meeting us for wedding photography at The Quality Hotel in Boldon for their big day. We also met up with them a few weeks before for a pre wedding photo shoot at one of our favourite places Saltwell Park.

Getting Ready
Ashleigh was getting ready at the hotel with her mum, bridesmaids and flower girl. They were all nice and calm when we arrived, with the bride looking fetching with her hair her rollers!

The bridesmaids were having their makeup done and the bride having her hair done.
There had been plenty bucks fizz around and Ashleigh was keeping everyone running to her schedule for timings for the day.

The girls got into their amazing red floor length bridesmaids dresses assisted by Ashleigh’s mum, and then it was time for the bride to get dressed. Ashleigh had a gorgeous bridal gown, it was covered in crystals and sparkles, a definite girly dress!

Nick popped out for a few photos of John when he arrived in the Mercedes with the guys as well.

With her dress on, veil fitted and jewellery added Ashleigh was a princess ready for her wedding! Her granddad arrived to walk her down the aisle and thought she looked amazing.

The Ceremony
The guests were all in their seats waiting for the arrival of the bridal party. The room looked amazing with a twinkly backdrop and archway.  John looked so happy to see his bride looking so beautiful.

There were some lovely readings by guests, the couple made their vows to each other and exchanged wedding rings. John was finally able to kiss his beautiful bride and they were over the moon to be married.

After the formalities of signing the register were completed and few had a few shots with the register then everyone headed out to the bar for a drinks reception.

After the drinks reception we went out to the hotels courtyard for the big group photo and to have some family formal photos taken as well.

The Romantic Couple’s Photographs
After the family photos were finished we whizzed the couple away for a little bit to take some wedding portraits outdoors. We had already been t the hotel in advance to check out the area with these photos in mind as John and Ashleigh were unsure on where to have photos taken apart from inside the hotel.  A short walk around the back of the hotel showed a little stone path with a grassy area and some trees with a white bench and arch that was perfect for some pretty pictures!  

The weather was definitely on our side although it was freezing cold! We had some shots on the seat under the arch, and used a few of our props like our vintage parasol for some pictures too.  We also used the front of the building for some photos with our Mr & Mrs signs as the brickwork made for an edgy feel in the images

Ashleigh and John had been a little nervous for their wedding portraits but after their Saltwell Park pre wedding shoot they were very relaxed and confident on the day with no nerves as they knew what to expect. They had a great time posing for their photo’s but we had to get back inside before we all froze!

The Speeches
The room had undergone a transformation and was set ready for the meal and looked amazing with the cake set up and pretty floral centrepieces. Guests came in and congratulated the couple and took their seats for the speeches to begin.

Ashleigh’s granddad gave the first speech telling about Ashleigh growing up and when she met john, it was a lovely heartfelt speech.

The groom John was up next and had a short speech thanking everyone for coming and telling everyone how happy he was.

The best man was last to take the stage and gave some funny tales of him and John and what they got up to, he had a few jokes included that gave everyone a giggle. John thought the speeches were over then but Ashleigh had arranged a surprise. John’s brother is living abroad and was unable to come across for the wedding, but he did write a speech which a family member read out on his behalf. John was definitely pleased to hear his brother’s words and moved that he had gone to the trouble of doing it!

We then took a break to let everyone enjoy their food and we got to work on a selection of the images from the day so far so they could be ready to go up on our projector for the evening reception guests to see!  We love our Image Projector service as it’s a wonderful way to include evening guests in everything that happened during the day time and a great talking point for guests too, as well as giving the Bride and Groom a sneaky peak at what’s to come!

Party time!
After the meal the guests made their way to the bar while the room was set up ready for the evening celebrations. The DJ was set up and ready for the party to begin, the projector was up displaying the images for guests to see and we had our PropBox set up for some fun shots. 
After a quick cutting of the cake was done Mr and Mrs Petre hit the dance floor for their first romantic dance as newlyweds. 

There was also a racing car simulator game which provided no end of entertainment for guests and was getting quite competitive when we left! Nick couldn’t help having a go but couldn’t get close to the top score the best man had!

The kids were having a great time with the props and running round the dance floor and everyone was having a great time were still enjoying themselves when we headed off home!

Overall it was a lovely fun relaxed day for everyone and we had a great day. We hope they like their photos as much as we do! Thanks to Ashleigh and John for choosing us to photograph their wedding day and allowing us to capture their memories to treasure for years to come.  Thanks so much for letting us be a part of it!

We wish you all the best for the future together as husband and wife!
