Jess and Andy’s whirlwind romance began around eight years ago when they met through a mutual work friend.
Andy got down on one knee on a private hotel rooftop, overlooking the beautiful ocean in Mexico and asked Jess if she would marry him where just 12 hours later, the bride-to-be was already wedding planning from the comfort of her sunbed!
Newton Hall Nuptial:
A botanical paradise, situated in the heart of Northumberland with breath-taking coastal views, this Georgian country house, Newton Hall was everything Jess and Andy had ever imagined and more.
Curating a fantasy destination for the couple’s tastefully traditional wedding ceremony and reception, its no wonder why they fell in love with all that this spectacular venue had to offer.
“Newton Hall is a WOW venue – it is beautiful inside and out, with such a grand yet quirky feel to it. We kept the colour scheme white and rose gold, introducing lots of foliage to fit in with Newton Hall’s décor.” – Jess
After tying the knot in the magical Enchanted Chapel, Jess and Andy’s guests spilled into the luxurious Garden Suite where the natural beauty of Newton Hall spoke for itself.
While Andy went for a classic look, sporting a navy three-piece suit and smart shoes to match, the bride dressed in a gorgeous fit and flare Stella York gown, complete with a beautifully embellished bodice, statement low-cut back and soft flowing skirt.
Making the perfect addition to her bridal look, Jess also wore a crystal tiara from Fawn and Sparrow and delicate silver jewellery, while her bridesmaid squad dressed in elegant sequinned dresses complementing the rose gold theme perfectly.
What a Picture:
Having previously seen Dan Clark’s creative photography at her sister’s wedding, there really was no other choice when it came to choosing their picture-perfect North East photographer.
“We wanted some natural pictures that captured our special day from a different perspective, rather than anything too formal and forced. We knew he’d get the perfect pictures we wanted and we certainly weren’t disappointed.” – Jess
Producing a bespoke package for their wedding day, Dan Clark Photography met all of Jess and Andy’s requirements, providing a service perfectly suited to their personalities.
