Becky and Chris are busy professional people with a sense of fun, and when we first met to talk weddings they were also busy with their very young son William.
We seemed to hit it off as we talked about their plans and I was delighted when they decided to ask me to be a part of their wedding celebrations in Tynemouth.
Fast forward a year, and it was good to meet with them at Saltburn and walk along the beach, have coffee and catch up on their pre-wedding shoot about 8 weeks before their wedding at the famous Parish Church of St George at Cullercoats on the sea front.
They knew how I photograph weddings and the pre-wedding meeting and photography is a further step in building a bond of confidence, so that when we get together on the BIG day, we are not strangers and everyone, including parents who I often meet before a wedding too, knows that everything will be relaxed and chilled out all day... and that's just what happened!
When I arrived, Becky was busy in her bridal room at The Grand Hotel Tynemouth where the main celebrations were to be held, with best friend Rachael appointed to do her make-up, while the wonderful Carolyn Clayton was busy finishing off everyone's hair.
The Maggie Sottero dress looked fabulous and soon it was time to get dressed - Becky also had THREE pairs of shoes for the day - she was well prepared.
When I arrived at the church, everyone again looked remarkably cool and calm, and even though Becky was 10 minutes late, she swept down the aisle full of confidence with her father.
Straight after the service there was lots of kisses and cuddles, handshakes and backslaps, and then Chris and Becky decided they wanted to dash for a few photographs at St Mary's lighthouse down the coast - which rather wrong-footed a few guests who were lined up to photograph the car as it headed to the Grand Hotel ... but we turned the other way!
Soon enough we decamped at the hotel and enjoyed the happy atmosphere, the great speeches and superb food.
There's always time to hit the beach at Tynemouth - I think nearly every wedding party ends up on the beach sometime during the day, and Becky and Chris and their family and friends were no different in the hour before the evening guests arrived.
At one point it felt that half the wedding party were paddling in the north sea - just as the sun came out again - we had such fun!
It was a great day for Becky and Chris and their friends and families, thanks for inviting me to be part of the day!
