Newton Hall Wedding Photography

Back in 2013 I ran a competition where I gave away my wedding photography to one lucky couple for 2014.That lucky couple was Esther and Ben who won me to shoot their Newton Hall wedding photography. When I pulled their names from the hat, I must admit, I had never heard of Newton Hall. Considering I live over 175 miles away from the Hall that’s not a huge surprise, so in the middle of August I jumped in my car and made the long 3 hour journey up north to Newton Hall. To say the trip was worthwhile would be an understatement.

Newton Hall is a proper ‘wow’ venue. It’s north of Alnwick, close to the sea and it is a brilliant wedding venue. Modern décor combined with amazing period features, huge grounds and a spectacular dining room make it one of the best wedding venues I’ve worked at. Esther was using one of the rooms within the hall for the bridal prep and the rooms are just spectacular. I was pretty pleased the long trip was more than worth it.

Travel Themed Wedding

Esther and Ben had met in Mexico whilst travelling. Both are well into scuba diving and only found out they had won after returning from more travelling in Thailand. These guys like to travel and it was fitting that their day was themed all around travel and the world with a brilliant world map table plan and a beach theme for the wedding breakfast. It’s a venue that can do the lot, service, reception, meal and evening reception and the staff there worked hard all day to make sure the wedding was run perfectly.

This is a proper wedding venue and one I can heartily recommend to anyone looking for something modern with wow factor. Since I shot this wedding I’ve been back to photograph my friend’s wedding there and I was lucky enough to try their food and I can confirm the food is amazing. I’m really lucky to work at some top drawer venues and I loved my first time shooting Esther and Ben’s Newton Hall wedding photography.

It was a brilliant, fun, wedding, with tears from the bride and groom (I love happy tears), a proper international party crowd  who were more than up for it and a stunning venue. So here’s the day, music by The Human League, photos by me…
