Wedding Photography at Langley Castle - Fiona & David's Fab Day

00608_290613_314Fiona and David are one of those rare couples who book me to shoot their wedding without actually meeting me. Now, I think that one of the most important things about choosing your wedding photographer is to make sure you 'gel' with them……. Read More...

Ruth and Mark's Kirkley Hall Wedding

Ruth and Mark were married on a beautiful day in September. Ruth’s walk to church with her dad and bridesmaids was the start of an amazingly romantic day. Kirkley Hall’s lovely grounds were the perfect place for everyone to start the celebrations and enjoy the weather. Some of their wedding photographs have a great vintage look which is becoming so popular.

Alli and Nayfe got married at gorgeous Langley Castle in September.  Their brilliant wedding day was filled with smiles and laughter from make-up to first dance and beyond!  It was so difficult to pick just a few photos to tell the story of their wonderful day.

Lynsey and Mike's Wedding at Langley Castle

I'd really been looking forward to Lynsey and Mike's "Big Day”, which was just before Christmas. They're a great couple, who share a wicked sense of humour, as you’ll see from their photographs. Their evening celebrations started off with one of the best first dances I've seen in a long time. Langley Castle Hotel always looks extra-special for December weddings and it was the perfect venue on a cold winter day. Thanks for a great day guys - you were fab to work with!

Lucie and Mike's Holy Island Wedding

Back in October, I had an absolute blast shooting Lucie & Mike's wedding at Lindisfarne Castle.  The weather was stunning so we went outside the castle and on the beach.  Lucie & Mike were absolute stars to work with, really up for a great laugh and spending time to get some stunning shots.  Thanks guys!!

A Great Start To 2013!!

OK - here we are halfway through January, and our New Year resolution starts NOW!!

We’re absolutely going to blog on a regular basis this year, and to start with, here’s Lovely feedback today from two of my December wedding couples:

"Lynz and I would like to extend ENORMOUS gratitude for your excellent service on our wedding day. You were really fantastic with everyone, and many guests have commented on how incognito and discreet you were throughout the duration. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts." and

"The wedding was perfect and we are really happy that you were our wedding photographer".

Thanks guys! December weddings are always amazing and I had a great time photographing both your weddings at
Langley Castle Hotel and Jesmond Dene House.

As soon as I’ve finished the edits, we’ll get some examples up here; in the meantime, suffice to say both sets of pics look fab!!

More soon.

International Recognition for Jonathan's Wedding Photography

Wow, wow, wow!!! I’m incredibly excited to learn that, after vigorous vetting, I’ve been accepted as a member of the prestigious and internationally renowned Wedding Photojournalist Association. Membership is so tightly controlled that there are just 95 members throughout England and I’m the only one between County Durham and the Scottish Borders! I’m immensely honoured that the quality and style of my wedding photography has been recognised in this way.

The WPJA website explains that it “only accepts into membership gifted, honest wedding photojournalists who work tirelessly to deliver excellent photography to their clients.” They believe that they help couples find the best wedding photographers “by granting membership only to the most talented professional wedding photographers in the world--photographers who focus solely on using their documentary photography skills to capture ‘the moments’ of your wedding day.”

The WPJA site is a great resource for couples planning their wedding photography - have a look at the Wedpix magazine for some great, real-life guidance on what a journalistic approach to wedding photography can give you.


Claire & Paul's wedding at Horton Grange

Claire and Paul got married in April at St Mary's Church in Stannington, Northumberland.  Then we whizzed off to the wonderful Horton Grange Country House Hotel near Ponteland.  Horton Grange is a gorgeous wedding venue with beautiful gardens and great food.  You can even get married in their garden now - I know because they asked me to shoot the official launch pics for their new Garden Ceremonies!
 
Claire, Paul and all their guests had an amazing day, and it was a real pleasure to part of their celebrations.  Their wedding reception was definitely one of the best I've ever seen.  That crowd really knew how to party!

Oh yeah, and if you look really hard at Paul’s best man and Claire’s bridesmaids, you may recognise a beautiful couple whose wedding I photographed last year - the slideshow on my web site’s home page gives a clue!! ;-)

 




























































Congratulations Claire and Paul.  Thanks for letting me be part of such a great day!
