Today’s is a traditional wedding on an impressive scale – with some gorgeous photographs and beautiful moments I know you’ll adore. The stunning bride and groom are Jessica and Michael, who told me “we had over 300 guests with the majority being loud old Chinese ladies(!!), this would be daunting and difficult for anyone, but Duncan handled it all smoothly“, their photographer being Newcastle wedding photographer Duncan McCall Photography.

I asked Jessica, What’s the best thing about being married? Her answer was lovely: simply, “Having my best friend around all the time.” And the love between this wonderful couple just shines from their photos. Enjoy!Claire

Love and luxe wedding style at The Vermont Hotel in Newcastle – today I have an ultra glam wedding to share with you all. Caroline & Mark’s big day is a classic celebration with chic styling touches to suit the art deco theme of their city venue.

Mixing traditional elements with modern styling can work beautifully – and an expensive wedding look doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Caroline’s florist teamed mercury glass with simple blooms for the tables, which complemented just a few more elaborate displays from the ceremony room.

Stationery was kept very simple and elegant: place settings are small and sweet while printed menus are tall and minimalist in style. Each table was named after a Hollywood star: Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland smile from chic frames on each table.

The overall look of the day is luxe and classic. If you fall for a venue – whatever your style may be – then use it to inspire your day. Caroline and Mark did, and it worked so beautifully!

Over the last week or two I’ve noticed something interesting: when couples complete their little interview to feature on the blog, they’re mentioning how they felt about having their photos taken. And those who’ve given the most glowing reviews for their photographers have had one thing in common: they had an engagement shoot.

I’m all for engagement shoots for three reasons: they’re a fun day out for you as a couple, they totally sort out your camera shyness before the big day, and you’ll really get to know your photographer. So I’m ever so happy that Duncan McCall, a top wedding photographer from Newcastle upon Tyne, has offered to share his thoughts on engagement shoots. This is well worth a read – and worth sharing the link with your other half if they might be a little camera-shy! Over to Duncan…

Duncan told me, “I try to capture as many natural moments as possible… I also like creating stunning couple portraits that will really stand out and give the newlyweds a real WOW portrait that they will enjoy looking back on over the years.”

It is always a real pleasure to see couples and their families celebrating and enjoying themselves at weddings. I also enjoy getting to know the couple and like to stay in touch with them after the wedding. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph some of their family portraits also once they have kids.

I had no idea you could get married in a treehouse in the north of England… in fact this is the most exciting thing I’ve discovered in years! I’ve always said I’d have a treehouse wedding. Lyndsey and Dean’s wedding is incredible: it’s creative, unique and super cool all rolled up into one bark-covered bundle – and I LOVE it!

The gorgeous bride and groom (because aren’t they just stunning?!) found their suppliers online, by word of mouth, and on Don’t Tell The Bride! They made little personal touches inspired by the treehouse styling which they used on the tables, but this is a venue which needs little help or customisation… because you’ll instantly be transformed back to your 7 year old self with its awesome wow factor!

Lyndsey and Dean chose Duncan McCall as their wedding photographer. He’s really captured the imagination and character of their day – I have LOVED putting this wedding blog together for you today, I can’t tell you! 🙂 Duncan is based in Newcastle upon Tyne and photographs weddings all over the UK and abroad – you can find out more about him here:

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.
