I am often asked if I have been to certain wedding venues, and I know that for some couples they feel this is important that their photographer knows the layout and photo hotspots at the place they will have their big day!
For me though while there is some comfort in returning to a venue I have been to before, I do relish the challenge of shooting a new venue in a new light with fresh eyes that is different than how previous photographers have - after all, I do not want your day and my photos to be a carbon copy of another couples or photographers day.
To give you an idea and to see some real weddings at some of the venues I have been to, take a look at a small snapshot of some of these.
Le Petit Chateau
Jedburgh Road, Otterburn, Northumberland, NE19 1NR
Phone: 0191 933 7409
Almost as far north into Newcastle as you can go and approx 10 miles from the Scottish border, the little pink chapel is one you may fall in love with on site, and it will not disappoint!!
Hanbury Wedding Barn
Parson Brake Farm, Burton Road, Hanbury, DE13 8TN
Phone: 01283 372715
One of my favourite venues to shoot at!
Not only is this venue well thought out, with lots of photo spots within a fairly compact area, it has a wheat field where the sun sets, accommodation pods, 2 wedding prep rooms, an evening room with large bi-fold doors that open up onto the courtyard, an indoor and outdoor ceremony option, and one huge modern barn for the wedding breakfast or a larger scale evening reception!
Not only that, this the team are always on it along with their amazing recommended caterers! What's not to love?
