I was back at Wylam Brewery, which isn’t very far away from where I live! It was nice not having to have a long drive ahead of me. Wylam Brewery is an incredible building! From the columns at the front to the large dome ceiling inside. I just love it! I
It doesn’t end there, Wylam Brewery is also surrounded by fields and trees and a pretty little lake. (Which my husband fell in, many years ago)
All this right in the centre of Newcastle. The exposed brick work and the parquet flooring is perfect and creates loads of atmosphere. I regularly visit Wylam Brewery, they do a cracking Sunday Roast and often have events on in the main Hall. I don’t get to go as often as I would like now I have a baby to look after. But when I do manage to get there it makes it the more special.
Lily was very relaxed on the morning of her wedding, the fantastic makeup artist Lisa was there, so I knew she was in good hands.
Lisa is very good at making brides feel at ease, when lets face it, the morning of your wedding can be very stressful! We looked out over the autumn trees and it was a very peaceful morning.
Lilys dress was incredible, I absolutely loved it. It had a 1920s feel to it, which I think worked great with the venue. It had lac and sequins which sparkled, the sleeves were flowing and made of lace, it was in a blush rose gold colour and looked stunning on Lily.
The flowers had a lilac colour scheme which looked fantastic against Lily’s dress. Soon a very snazzy vintage car arrived with my favourite chauffeur and Lily was whisked off to Wylam Brewery.
A cute little page boy threw rose petals down the aisle with a little bit of help from his mum, as Elliot waited patiently for his beautiful bride to arrive.
Lilys face lit up as she saw him, and Elliott was definitely holding back tears. These two are just perfect for each other.
After the ceremony we did some formal pictures in from top the gorgeous building and then it was time to take a little stroll for the couple portraits. The rain had stayed off, but could return at anytime! We headed for a stunning tree with bright golden leaves which looked fantastic in the picture. Lily and Elliott were a dream to photograph. They were so expressive and giggled the whole time as they practised their first dance.
We had a little walk around the lake and I used a bit of a fancy trick to add some golden light, as it was overcast. It did involve poor greta having to climb up an embankment and hold onto a tree for dear life. She was fine, worth it for the picture 🙂
The food at Wylam Brewery was yummy! I do get spoiled rotten being a wedding photographer. Soon everyone was on the dance floor busting some moves as Lily changed into a long emerald green dress which was devine!
Congratulations Lily and Elliot.
