I had the great pleasure of photographing Adam & Natalie’s wedding recently at Ellingham Hall, Northumberland.

Ellingham is one of my favourite wedding venue’s in the north east and I’ve been lucky enough to photograph there on many occasions.

Adam & Natalie wanted a relaxed wedding day that was both simple and elegant and they certainly achieved it. From Natalie’s gorgeous Yap gown, to Adam’s Moss Bros suit, beautiful blooms and all their décor, everything about their special day was classy and timeless.

The clouds were grey to start with but everything turned out great in the end with plenty of sunshine, which was perfect for enjoying the stunning outdoor surroundings and playing some lawn games.

One of the best moments in the day was during the speeches when Adam casually announced they were expecting a baby to all their family and friends; it was brilliant and the expressions on peoples faces were pure shock and joy. I really didn’t know which way to point my lens because everyone was up on their feet, crying and cheering and congratulating the newlyweds.

You really had to be there to witness it first hand but here is a small selection of some of my favourite images from the day.
