This was a much anticipated wedding…I love a Winter wedding with it’s low light throwing shadows all over the place and this was just what we got for Becs and Chris’s Ellingham Hall Wedding up in Northumberland back in December. What a perfect way to round off a very busy wedding season.
I loved, loved, loved this wedding, it was such a joy to shoot and really lent itself to my documentary style. Becs and Chris were really relaxed and fun to be around with Ellingham Hall making the perfect backdrop to the relaxed, unposed photography which they wanted and which is always my aim to provide for my clients.
Those who know my wedding work will be surprised to see so many colour images in this post; All this “christmassy” imagery, with the beautiful warm ambient light and rich tones somehow needs rendering in colour- it seems to lose something in the black and white (and I rarely say that!)
It was my first time at Ellingham Hall which was built in the 17th Century and was used as a boys’ preparatory school from the 1950’s until the 1980’s. Always love a bit of history!
A huge thank you to all involved; The day was orchestrated by Ellingham’s brilliant in- house wedding co-ordinator Wendy who made sure everything ran to time.

These guys certainly know how to throw a party. Check out the speech and first dance photos towards the end of the blog. Live music provided by Faye Shearer at AMV Live Music
A completely awesome wedding at Ellingham Hall but at the end of the day the Images speak for themselves.
Loved being a part of your day guys!
