Captured by RGMphoto, Jamie and Faye celebrated their special day in the relaxed setting on Newton Hall. “We loved the feel and style of Newton Hall, so that inspired the rest of the day along with a few personal touches to make the day unique to us,” said Faye.
She added: “We first came across Newton Hall when we saw a poster at their sister venue, As You Like It in Jesmond. We loved it straight away – we didn’t even consider anywhere else. We would definitely recommend it to future brides.”
To reflect the venue, Faye and Jamie choose Ross from RGMphoto. “We met Ross from at a Wedding Wonder show, at the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle. We were drawn to him as his display album featured Newton Hall. We loved his approach and photography style so we booked him straight away.”
During the speeches there was an exciting surprise for both the bride and groom! “Our best man, Lee, got in touch with the people at Manchester United, as Jamie is a big fan, and got us a letter and wedding card from Ryan Giggs! Lee had the letter framed and presented it to us during his speech – we were all gobsmacked!”
Advice for future brides and grooms-to-be?
“Relax and enjoy the whole process, as you will never get to do it again. And always remember that the day is about the two of you, and your wedding should reflect that,” said Faye.
