Kaye and Alan’s wedding – 7th August, 2011

Kaye and Alan’s wedding – what to say? Well, it was fabulous, that’s the first thing. Secondly, I owe Kaye and Alan a big thank you. A year and a while ago, they asked me if I’d shoot their wedding, and I made the jump into a remarkable part of the photographic world. Since then, I’ve shot other weddings, invested in new gear, practised and generally tried to ensure that when their big day came, I’d be ready and do a great job for them.

We started off at Kaye and Alan’s house, with some shots of Kaye and her bridesmaids getting ready. It was amazing to see how much energy and excitement could fit into a normal-sized house.

Then off to the lovely St. Charles RC Church in Gosforth for the ceremony. To say the inside is impressive is something of an understatement, and made the couple’s marriage vows feel all the more special.

The reception was held at the luxurious Linden Hall, a great venue with fantastic staff and some outstanding locations. The rain held up for just long enough to dash out and get some photos in the grounds.

Then the wedding breakfast and speeches – a grand effort by the Father of the Bride, the Groom and the Best Man, a good few laughs and some heart-warming sentiments.

The evening reception was held in the Bigge Room (I’d got confused, and thought it must be pretty gigantic if they simply called it the Big Room – saying which, it was quite large) and a vast table of sweets made an appearance – I didn’t think they still made some of the sweets on display.

The lovely couple’s first dance, and the evening’s celebration got underway.

Many thanks go to the Priest at St Charles, who showed me the ‘good spot’ to shoot from during the ceremony – he was right, though I’d say it was ‘magnificent’, rather than just ‘good’. Also to Allan Bews, who stepped up to the plate as second shooter and did a fabulous job – he jumped in pretty much last minute, and did me proud.

Best wishes to Kaye and Alan too – as lovely a couple as I’ve had the pleasure of shooting, I wish them every happiness for the future.
