North East Wedding Photographer

We’re husband & wife / best friends, who also happen to be award-winning photographers; passionate, professional North East wedding photographers with a creative, relaxed & distinctive documentary style and a love for a fun-filled, party wedding!

Based in County Durham, up in the North East of England, photographing weddings across the country including County Durham, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, Yorkshire, Scotland, Lancashire & Northamptonshire to name a few.

Your personalities, your guests, your party!

We love weddings, and hanging out with you and your guests, and as such, our relaxed wedding photography is driven by you, your personalities, your guests, your party. Not by a series of shot lists created from previous weddings and each and every wedding we document is different, each with their own uniqueness, driven by their own vibe & personality.

We want to document the atmosphere & essence of the day, utilising creative lighting, unorthodox angles, reflections, framing, and bold colours, to create compelling, unique fine-art images that exceed that of more traditional wedding photography.

We're wedding photographers for those couples who want relaxed, easygoing and absolutely faff free photography; for couples who want to spend their wedding day enjoying it with their nearest and dearest, rather spending their day as if it was a photoshoot!!

 

 

 

 

Creative, Artistic, Fun & Relaxed Wedding Photography

We understand that for most people, they hate having their picture taken. We make it as relaxed as possible and much prefer blending in as if we were just another pair of guests, capturing your day as it unfolds, along with the feeling, the fine details, the love, emotion, and the expressions without intruding or unnecessary posing.

We don't spend the day directing, bossing you (or anyone else for the matter) around, or try to instruct you in any way - we document your day as it unfolds, by letting you guys relax, and do your thing with your nearest and dearest!

Have a look at this slideshow and some of our recent work to get an idea of how we work.

We strive to create compelling, emotive, and original ideas that tell the story of your own unique day; when you are who you are, no fake smiles, no clichés, nothing 'cheesy', no 'staged' scenes; Just honest, emotive, real moments in time, captured forever!

As sought-after wedding photographers with such a unique style, we've been lucky enough to document weddings at so many beautiful weddings across the entire UK and many of the most exclusive North East wedding venues! Have a look on our ‘Love Letters’ page for some of the amazing reviews our couples have left for us!

Fun & Down to Earth

We're a fun & down to earth couple and place a great deal of focus on building a rapport with our couples - this really helps us to be able to 'get you' as a couple; combined with our fun & relaxed way of shooting, it really helps not only our couples relax, but their guests too and it shows through in our wedding photography.

We don't care about your sex, colour, religious leanings, or what you do for a living, what is important to us is that you don't take yourselves too seriously, and are able to laugh (the stronger the belly laugh, the better!). What matters to us the most, is providing you with a phenomenal document of your own, unique, amazing day!

"Thank you both so so so much for the day! You honestly both felt like great friends we had always known. We know we wouldn't have had a better photographer for the day than you guys. We had such a fab day, and it wouldn't have been half the day it was without you guys and we know you have captured every moment."

Storytelling Wedding Photography

We firmly believe that anyone viewing your wedding photographs should be able to feel the atmosphere, the vibe of the day, not just a bunch of photographs randomly taken during the day! We take an artistic approach to story telling, using light, angles, and colour to capture individual moments in time to tell this wonderful story.

We use light & shadows, and our imagination to creatively capture a magical, authentic story of your day as it unfolds; using a blend of contemporary & creative signature imagery to not only capture the beauty of your day, but tell it's story through Candid Moments, Real Emotions & Real Connections - this allows you both to be awesome and truly experience the magic, the emotion and moments that make up your day - not forgetting the little details that you've spent so much time creating that help stitch a wedding together.

Fleeting moments of Light

We're big fans of light and shadow, and how it interacts with the day - we love capturing those fleeting moments of light at weddings, those moments that are there for a split second, then gone forever - those moments that you couldn't replicate with all the will in the world; they may only be a tiny fragment of the day, but still, play a part in the story of the day.

To the right, are just 4 tiny moments from one wedding - light on the dress as Beccy gets out of the car, grandma walking through stunning light, light on the veil, just as Beccy caught it blowing in the breeze, and light on Matt's flower as he gently helped Beccy into the car.

Donna & Charlie - Healey barn Wedding

Goooooood Evening you two!

We are currently at Charlie's Mums in the middle of the East Sussex sticks! BT is down so no phone signal and WiFi.......so the only way we could view the gallery was a trip down to our local! Haha

We absolutely love the photos! Can I just say the gallery caption should be "Donna's Facials" - you certainly caught me looking natural! We have loved, laughed and almost cried at the gallery! We are in absolute awe! You certainly captured the day in all respects! No such thing as a bad photo eh?! Hahaha It has been lovely taking a trip down memory lane!

Thank you so much for creating the most beautiful gallery! We are super Impressed - they have turned out alot better than we could have Imagined. You guys are the most amazing duo! I knew the 1st day I met you both. You made our day extra special and we will forever be thankful. When i look back, I think we are soooo lucky to have crossed paths .My attention to detail and superb military style research left no stone unturned. You both made the short list and aced at the meet up - I knew I had to have you both for our day!

Before your heads get any bigger I will leave it at that.

Chris + Ben - Alnwick Tree House - Northumberland Wedding Photography

WOW, we absolutely love all of these - we can't believe how incredible they are and how magical the day looks. Flicking through last night and this morning, each picture has allowed us to relive the day and moments that we'd either forgotten about or just hadn't seen on the day. You really captured not only everything that was going on, but also our personalities and the essence of what we wanted our whole day to be about.
