Heather and Joels Wedding - St Nicholas Cathedral, Newcastle upon Tyne

Yesterday I had the absolute delight and pleasure of photographing Heather and Joels wedding, these two people are a match made in the heavens and a most amazing and inspiring couple.




Heather chose to marry in a simple dress and a shetland wedding shawl, I think she looked simply beautiful.





Heather chose a bouquet of crocuses and daffodils


Looking out over the city from the Hilton hotel from where we departed. We walked to the cathedral passing many of the citys great landmarks along the way.





I'd never photographed a wedding where everything was done on foot and I have to say that I loved the walking.




Crossing the millenium bridge.




The beautful bridesmaids.




Joel receiving some last minute words from best man Lucy.



I love this one with Heather and her bridesmaids as the service was commencing.



Getting down to the serious business of marraige with Robert the wonderful Canon of the cathedral.




Did I mention they had a choir?

At one point the head of the choir sang in Hebrew, it was an amazing moment and Joel clearly felt the emotion, I think this next photograph is beautiful.








Married!!!

So up until now you may not have grasped the size of the cathedral, well here's a shot I got from the back just before the end of the service.



At the end Joel and Heather lead everyone into the East Chapel for champagne and canapes



This was followed by the speeches which were introduced as a 3 minute concept.



Here's another of my favourite moments from yesterday.




OOh Confetti and kisses



at the end of the afternoon we all walked from the Cathedral up to the Northern Stage for the meal.

On the way we stopped for lots of photographs, my favourite were when Joel who had donned a sparkly purple cap danced with Heather spontaneously




This kind of thing doesn't happen often




We also stopped at Starbucks





and then off we went to the university gardens for some portraits.






I love this one




Oh and this one too!!




Joel and Heather, you are an extraordinary couple, I can't thank you enough for letting me part of your special day. Enjoy the Dominican Republic and I'll see you for your viewing in a couple of weeks.

WOW you can just feel the love in these photos Mandy - really captured the day I had tears in my eyes. Those flowers were just amazing too!!

heather, joel, and the artificial fingernails which provide both a wonderful memento of the day and an awkward impediment to typing said...

Wow!!!! Sitting in a heavily air-conditioned internet cafe... these are wonderful! You have delivered to perfection the essential chorus role (that last sentence of course being Joel´s... in Greek drama, that being to provide a true eyewitness perspective) Thank you, thank you so much. The anticipation of seeing the full set of your photos will definitely ensure we return from our honeymoon...
