Peter and Kiera’s unforgettable wedding day at Jesmond Dene House, with Duncan McCall Photography

A little while ago I wrote a feature about wedding venues and how sometimes we don’t see venues in all their glory on wedding blogs – and yet we should! Kiera and Peter’s wedding reminded me of that article because they have so many photos taken around their wedding venue, the magnificent Jesmond Dene House near Newcastle.
