The Winter Gardens in Hexham was the venue for Sarah & Luke’s wedding recently. I met them earlier this year and instantly liked them, lovely personalities and although Luke told me he was a little camera shy I knew we were going to have fun!
The Winter Gardens are located at the Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham, a first for me and on my usual venue inspection prior to the big day, Sarah, Luke and I confirmed some timings before heading off to see the beautiful walled garden. This was a private little garden they had booked to have some pictures taken and inside was just made for photography, I prayed for nice weather on the day and we got it!!!
For 2 people that said they were pretty camera shy I think the pictures say differently, thank you guys for being such good sports. Photography is most definitely a team effort and I think Sarah & Luke were amazing. Here’s a few of my favourites from the day…
Meet Luke and his brother Christian…
The reception room was a photographer’s dream, lovely natural light from all directions!
There were plenty of toys to keep the kids entertained throughout.
Here’s Christian on the phone to one of the Bridesmaids, they were more than fashionably late and it turned out the transport dropped them at the wrong end of the school DUH! It was the only time I’ve ran down a school corridor and not been told off, it felt great!!
The ceremony itself was held in the school hall, a nice personal touch I thought…
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Pencott!!! We did some group shots then headed for the secret garden …
Can I just remind you at this point these guys originally said they didn’t like being in front of a camera, yeah right!!!!
After we left the gardens we decided to walk the grounds of the school a little and found this lovely textured wall so we stopped for a little more fun!
Ah, the speeches! I love catching the speeches, Sarah’s Dad did a great job, as did Luke followed by his brother Christian.
I wondered what Sarah was thinking right there!
I love this last image…..
