From sea views to art installations, Nina and Mike travelled to various North East venues so that they could have the wedding of their dreams.
“We had the ceremony at St Mary’s lighthouse and then travelled to the BALTIC for our wedding breakfast. After this we had time for some photos in and around the building. We then had a two hour break during which time many of the guests dashed back to their hotel and changed into Indian/glamorous attire. We then returned to the BALTIC and had a barbecue followed by dancing.”
“We only ended up having five minutes for photos at the lighthouse after the ceremony, as the tide was coming in quite fast and we just made it off the island in time!
Also my two cute little nephews were making some funny comments about seeing us kissing at the end of the ceremony and then later in the day they were laughing saying we were going to do it again when we were taking photos.”
“We found our lovely photographer Becy Farr on Facebook and then looked on her blog. We loved her use of natural lighting in photos and the way she captured an interesting story.”
“I would definitely recommend our venues and all the other companies that helped us organise the wedding to future brides. We wanted to get married somewhere unusual near the seaside in Tynemouth as it is a beautiful area and we have great memories there.
“The lighthouse was the perfect venue for the ceremony. We also wanted to get married in the UK as opposed to abroad so all our family and friends could come and share our special day with us. We chose the BALTIC for our afternoon and evening reception as we love the expositions there and it has fabulous views of the River Tyne.”
Advice for future brides and grooms?
“Make decisions about what type of catering you want as early as possible and ask your guests to rsvp back as soon as possible, so you have plenty of time to put together seating plans and avoid last minute stress.”
