... AND WITH THE LIGHT DISAPPEARING FAST .. .TIME FOR A QUICK GROUP PHOTOGRAPH!
Small intimate weddings with 20 or 30 close friends and family in boutique hotels, cafe's and restaurants are as attractive to me as grand weddings in country houses with hundreds of guests - often they are more fun too.
That's why I always have an option for my prospective brides and grooms that I will offer the service for those brides and grooms who really enjoy the happy, natural photography I produce from a wedding, just as long as they understand, that for me, the chemistry between us is more important to me than the photography!
The photography should always be good or excellent as I have been a professional photographer for so long, for me it's all about trust and confidence - and in Morag and Joanathan, I just knew their small intimate wedding planned and executed in a matter of weeks would be a whole load of fun!
I booked and met with the happy couple at As You Like It, a quirky, homely 'Eating House' and 'Terrace' which has dark ceilings, low level lighting, little available light and it's the sort of place that brides will love - all lit with fairy lights and spotlights, but a place that is REALLY challenging for a photographer.
I think all three of us got a good vibe from each other .... Morag and Jonathan 'knew' each other for years, the were on the peripheral of each others social circles in their hometown of Morpeth in Northumberland.
Both came out of unsuccessful relationships, and by their own admission were not sure that they would meet anyone else, let alone fall  in love again and commit, but after one particularly 'fun' weekend, they got talking in the garden of a local pub, and something clicked, something BIG clicked, and after a whirlwind romance, with their friends and families urging them on, they decided to marry as soon as possible - and after being with them and their friends and family for many hours, I'm so sure they are so right for each other!
I met with families before the simple civil ceremony, and spent time photographing relaxed and natural photographs of everyone mingling and drinking in As You Like It after the ceremony, before taking five minutes out to get some portaits of the happy couple before grabbing a quick group shot out on the terrace and photographing the speeches.
There was love and happiness everywhere, and both Morag and Jonathan had tears and smiles for each other ...  I hope you enjoy a small selection of photographs from their wedding and it gives you an insight and a feel for their relaxed wedding day at As You Like It in Newcastle.
