The day started with a quick visit to Bamburgh Beach, Julie and Mark were not concerned with tradition and were happy to see each other before the ceremony - it was lovely for them to spend some time together with the children before all the events of the day. You really can’t tell how windy it was in the photos on that day - it was actually insane!
We headed back to the Castle for a few more shots around the grounds before ‘the finishing touches’ of getting ready and welcoming all the guests to the Grand Kings Hall. The ceremony included a beautiful sand ceremony and readings from both mums.
After the ceremony Mark and Julie jumped on their tandem bike for a hilarious ride around the grounds, Julie’s blue veil left her hair but fortunately the wind blew it right back down and into my hands! We all walked down to another part of the castle where there were fish and chips served from a van and cake and drinks were served inside.
The very next day I attended their wedding reception at Crusoes, Tynemouth - its the second time I’ve photographed a reception here and it is a fab location! There were pinatas, mad dancing, someone dressed as a scuba diver and halloween decorations and sparklers, great fun!
This has been quite a long blog, mainly because Mark and Julie have opted for a USB / digital photo only package so I didn’t get to create a storybook album (and I love putting the pictures from a wedding together to create the story of the day), its great to look over their wedding again and this has been the perfect way to enjoy it.
