Rebecca and Owen first met at Edinburgh University, at the classic Saturday student night out – ‘The Big Cheese”.
The Baltic in Gateshead is the blank-canvas wedding venue that is ideal for the couple wanting to make it their own.
Right in the city, The Baltic is quirky and mysterious. With mood lighting and Grace-Kelly vibes, concrete walls and artistic feels.
The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art features the gallery of Art work and a rooftop dining experience. Offering up panoramic views of the Quayside, perfect for a city backdrop of lights and ambience.
The couple and their guests had a private dining ordeal on the rooftop restaurant, SIX at The Baltic. Often decorated with exhibitions and art projects, it’s truly a non-traditional venue for the edgy couple.
SIX are known to offer excellent British cuisine with the highest of ratings. With a cityscape spectacle, the photograph opportunities here are endless.
Landing one of Belle’s favourite photographer’s, GASP Photography showcased their modern and shadowy images at a wedding fair, at The Baltic. Both Rebecca and Owen knew this was the photographer they had to have. With original ideas of using Local Street art and underground car parks for structural elements, it was the unique content they wanted to memorise their wedding day.
Florist Jess O’Donnell from Sprig and Thistle arranged beautiful natural botanics for the bouquet and bridesmaids flower crowns, again tying in the old-time traditions with this urban alternative twist.
The Wedding Outfits:
Rebecca found her royal inspired lace gown from Y.A.P in Newcastle City Centre.
After trying on just four dresses, Rebecca found the one she loved. Going in with an idea of a full skirt and full lace, this Morilee gown ticked all the boxes. A few finishing touches were needed to complete the monarchical look, including a custom made jacket by Diva Designs and an Ian Stuart lace trim veil.
Owen wore a suit from Master Debonair, the go-to for award winning groom’s wear. The Groomsmen also got their suits from Master Debonair, opting for the best of the best.
