Natural and unusual Portrait shots are something we aim for in each wedding











Many of our brides ask us what we do if it rains, well here is one example ! Find a big puddle and get artistic in this case 



Backworth Hall Newcastle Wedding Photography



PLEASE NOTE : ALL OF THESE PHOTOS ARE FROM ACTUAL WEDDINGS 

Some of the Photographers and Venues you will see display photos from organised photo-shoots and training sessions where they have hired models and used sophisticated lighting set ups , they become obvious when you see them as they just look too perfect ! This is hardly a good reflection of the work you will receive from your wedding as an actual Wedding Day with its differing weathers and timings provides a completely different challenge.



Even in places where confetti is not allowed there is always a way !
