Sophie and Phil’s winter wedding at Newton Hall was blessed with beautiful warm light from the low December sun which gave us an opportunity to get some great portraits of the couple on the nearby Newton beach. It was a pleasure to capture Sophie and Phil’s wedding day and spend time with them, their family and friends. Congratulations guys. Read on to find out more about their winter Newton Hall wedding.
Why did you choose your venue?
Newton Hall has an amazing feel to it. It was the only venue we looked at but we fell in love with it instantly. The staff, the food, the location, it was all incredible.
Did you have a theme? What was the inspiration for your wedding?
We didn’t really have a theme per se, although we did name our tables after our favourite Northumberland locations. Me and Phil both loved Northumberland so we felt a natural affinity to getting married on the coast.
What was your wedding colour scheme?
Our colour theme was blush pink and silver. We wanted a seasonal winter wedding which felt chrismassy but without Santa Claus and Rudolf! The silver added a bit of sparkle without being too over the top.
Tell us about your dress and grooms wear:
My dress was by designer Martina Liana, number 753. I wanted something simple and elegant but with a bit of drama on the train. Phil got his suits – blue with a grey waistcoat/ blue waistcoat for the rest of the grooms’ party. Slaters were brilliant, as was Mia Sposa where I got my dress.
Tell us about your bridesmaids/ groomsmen:
I had three bridesmaids – Gillian and Vicky, my childhood friends and Becca, my now sister-in-law. Phil’s best man was lifelong friend, Joe, with his brothers Steve and Chris as ushers.
Who did your hair and makeup?
The incredible Natasha and Becca from La Belle Vous.
Who did your flowers and what did you chose?
Charisma Florists. We had pale pink and cream roses with gypsophila and some slivery /green foliage. They were stunning.
Are there any other suppliers you would like to mention?
Our amazing photographers of course! Our photos on the beach are out of this world and they will always evoke such amazing memories.

What was your favourite part of the day?
Easy – our photos on the beach.
What is your top tip for another Bride and Groom?
Enjoy every minute and don’t sweat the small details. You’ll be the only one on the day who will notice and the most important thing is celebrating your special day with your friends and family.
How did we do?
10/10 – we couldn’t have asked for better photographers. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you guys.
