2008 Favourites Post 1 - Wedding Photography

Ok, so the year is drawing to a close and what a year it's been, I really wanted to share some of my favourite photographs from this year, I've shot 21 weddings this year and 57 portrait sessions so plenty of photographs to pick from, goodness only knows how many images i've actually shot, quite a few I reckon!! LOL

So here's post 1 and it could be the first part of an epic series...

Ok, I'm stuck already, but lets go back to April when I was part of the most unique wedding of my season, the wedding of the very lovely and wonderful Heather and Joel. If you want to see more from their wedding at Newcastle Cathedral just click on that link to go to the original blog post. this unique event was really the start to my wedding season and it's I'm happy to have made 2 wonderful new friends in the form of Heather and Joel who's New Year Bash we'll be attending on Wednesday.




Ok, this photo was taken just as they were leaving the cathedral to walk through Newcastle up to the Northern Stage, I love it because it's unposed, joyful and really captures the spirit of just how happy they were.

Skipping firmly onwards to the end of May and I was lucky enough to be part of Amy and Shakers fab wedding, this wedding was all about fun and I was delighted that they took time out of their wedding day to capture some amazing images down at St Marys Island, those images included this one.





at the end of that same week I shot what was to be one of my most favourite weddings of the year simply because Stuart and Jayne made me feel so very welcome, really like part of the family. They got married at the Stadium of light and their couples shots were on a 2 foot ledge just above a sheer drop down to the river, this one my favourite of several in a series of shots





after those 2 weddings, I think I had around a week before winging my way to the Gosforth Park Marriot Hotel for Louise and Matthews wedding where I shot this image





One of the most joyeous parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to capture the beauty of brides, there really isn't anyone so gorgeous as a bride who is about to walk down the aisle and this image of Rachel from her wedding at the Caledonian Hotel in Jesmond really does prove that.





another joyful part of my job is that I get to photograph all the gorgeous little bridesmaids and page boys, this beautiful little girl was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Kerry and Matt





Phew, i did say this could take some time!!

Onwards now to one of my most beautiful brides of 2008, this lovely lady is as gorgeous on the inside as she is beautiful on the outside, the wedding of Rachel and Jonathon really was a joy to photograph at The Old Assembly rooms with the couples photographs being captured on the Newcastle Quayside.




and that dear reader is where i will leave it for today, join me later in the week for some more images. I really am the luckiest photographer in Newcastle to get to photograph so many wonderful weddings, brides, grooms, bridesmaids, venues, love, happiness.... lol you get the idea!
