When I met Ruth for our initial consultation at Jesmond Dene House, I immediately knew we were a good fit for each other! We got on well from the start and she loved my work. We'd also both been through grief so could relate to each other. She was confident in me and my work so just trusted me to 'do my thing'. Ruth filled in my survey recently and I just love what she wrote - "I found you by going through photographers' albums on Facebook. They had plenty of examples from r
So nobody can predict the British weather, especially when you book your wedding day so far ahead. Even the weather man gets it wrong sometimes. But the new Mr & Mrs Hegarty (and gorgeous son Jenson), certainly never expected the amount of rain that appeared in Otterburn on 10th August! We're talking sand bags at the door, an overflowing river, firemen preparing to evacuate them, a two hour power cut and tuna sandwiches & wine for their wedding breakfast. But I love the fact
Alexa & Andrew were a dream to work with! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do my best work when a couple just trust me and leave me to it!
The whole look of their wedding was stylish and pretty; something that Charlton Hall excels at.

I just loved working on this super stylish and uber-cool wedding at Northumberland's newest and funkiest venue, Charlton Hall. I'm proud to say that I'm a recommended Florist there!
Rachael and Michael were a lovely couple to work with and I'm so glad they chose me to make their flowers. Rachael is a Social Media Influencer so everything had to look tip top! They opted for stylish and classic white and green flowers, which match their style and the venue perfectly!
We are so lucky in Northumberland. We have so many beautiful wedding venues in our small corner of the globe. So much so that many people travel long distances to get married here. I have had Brides travel from Holland, Dubai, France, India, Canada, as well as our very own big cities such as London, Manchester and Essex. Anum & Jack travelled from London to Woodhill Hall in Otterburn for their New Year's Eve nuptials and I was honoured that they chose me as their Florist! Im
January 26th marked the start of my 2019 weddings, with Emma & Steve's beautiful city wedding at The Biscuit Factory. The ceremony arch, the pretty bouquets, the centrepieces, it really was a pretty one to start the year with. Emma and Steve booked me quite some time ago and they've been an absolute pleasure to work with. I tend to book such lovely couples and these guys were no exception.

The history of Valentine’s Day, legend says, originated during the third century in Rome. During this time, Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers, so he outlawed marriage for young men. A young priest named Valentine was furious with this injustice and defied Claudius by continuing to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. Claudius eventually discovered Valentine’s actions and sentenced him to death (not quite the fate of those who fail to bu
A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to be part of Abby & Matt's big day at Jesmond Dene House. Just as lucky was that Matt's sister, Nicole, came all the way from Newfoundland to photograph this lovely event. Lucky because this was the start of a great relationship with Nicole; and she now runs week long workshops with her Canadian photography students over here in Newcastle. As part of those, we hold a styled Bridal shoot and it's a great creative process for us. I'd lo
Last year I had the pleasure of being asked to create some beautiful florals for Natalie and Scott's wedding at The Mining Institute and St. Mary's Heritage Centre. Now, just a short few month's later, Natalie has started her own wedding planning and wedding design business! She can coordinate every part of your wedding for you with her 'Dont Lift a Finger' package or just give you advice/practical help with her 'Helping Hand' package. She also offers stationery design, every
