Yea I am photographing a wedding ….. in my home town!
That is actually a first for me – every wedding I have done so far has been either abroad, down South or in the North West of the country – so it’s lovely to be able to actually walk to one for a change!
… Well I probably won’t “walk” to be honest (too much camera kit to carry) – but you get my drift.
I was married at the old Registry office in North Shields myself 25 years ago – not the most salubrious of locations so fortunately for my bride, the offices have moved to the riverside, and there will be an opportunity to go out onto the balcony and take some shots overlooking the River Tyne.
Co-incidentally the location for the wedding was hosting a wedding fair this weekend so I popped along to have a wee look. There were about 30 suppliers there – so it was a fantastic opportunity to have a look at what’s out there locally for North Tyneside brides.
Vintage Tea Party – Julie Clay hires out bunting and vintage crockery which is absolutely gorgeous….. and the best bit… all of her prices include the washing up!
Maureen at Whitley Cakes had a fantastic semi-naked cake on display which looked to die for! I would have given almost anything for a slice of this cake…. it was sooooo pretty….. And if it had been served on one of Julie’s vintage tea plates she wouldn’t have needed to wash up because the plate would have been licked clean 🙂
Leanne from Cygnet Events and her team were also there with the landtrain beautifully decorated – what a novel way to transport your guests to the reception!
I’m really looking forward to photographing this wedding! And of course, it goes without saying …. they will live happily ever after!
