Don't forget to look at your wedding photos

Yesterday, it was my seventh wedding anniversary. One of my rituals is to put my wedding dress on again and another, is to look through our wedding album at the photographs which bring back happy memories of the day.

Your album gets carried around everywhere when you first get it, to show everyone, but after a few months gets relegated to a drawer or cupboard. So don't forget to look at your wedding photographs, every now and again. Even if it's just once a year on your anniversary.

Our wedding
Yes! That's me (on the other side of the camera) and my lovely husband

Civic Centre Wedding, Newcastle

I booked good weather for this wedding at the Civic Centre in Newcastle, as the bride and groom only required me for photos at the ceremony. Rain would have limited our options but fortunately the weather was fine.

Civic Centre 01

One groom looking extremely smart.

Civic Centre 02

Loadsa bridesmaids looking...purple.

Civic Centre 03

A ponderous groom looking slightly more nervous. Like all good military operations, everyone had arrived early. The registrars were late! (Sorry, but they were).

Civic Centre 04

Civic Centre 05

Finally we're underway and now Mr and Mrs!

"When can we take these shoes off?" The price girls pay for looking gorgeous.

Civic Centre 07

The bride with her brother and sister. Aren't the flowers lovely? I'll tell you something about them later.

Civic Centre 09
 The girls!!!!!!!!!

And the boys.

After the group shots and mingling guests, we let everyone head off to the reception (and a drink) and took some quiet shots around the Civic Centre.

It's amazing how many nooks and crannies you can find around the building.

This is the shot where the bride felt like she was a celebrity!

Civic Centre 21

Nearly time to let the couple get away to their reception.

Just enough time to get some detail shots.

His and hers.

Civic Centre 23

Look closely at the flowers...not real but fabulous silk ones that looked so real!

Civic Centre 24

And not so long before they drove away into the sunset...

...well, it was fair but not quite sunny.

But you know what I mean!

Photo Friday #29

Tortoise Shell butterfly

I haven't seen many butterflies about this summer, unfortunately, so I thought I'd share a photo of one.

Finalist in the North of England Wedding Awards

A few weeks ago I posted about entering the North of England Wedding Awards and I'm thrilled to say that I'm a finalist in the photography category. It means so much to me that my clients are happy with the service that I provide and their wedding photographs. The winners are announced later this year so I'll keep you posted.

Thank you to all of the couples who voted for me.
