Christmas wedding at the Vermont Newcastle
Fay & Chris came over from Australia to have a Christmas wedding at the Vermont, Newcastle where they met at Uni. The Vermont is a fantastic hotel situated right next door to the New Castle from which the city gets it’s name. We love Winter wedding photography, especially Christmas weddings it’s a special time of year. Add to that the joy of a wedding and it makes for a magical day.
Although we are Wiltshire wedding photographers we do love to travel and we photograph weddings all over the country. I’ve photographed a few Newcastle weddings but not at The Vermont until now. It’s a fabulous place with lovely staff especially Tanya who looked after us all day.
Bridal prep at the Vermont
In the morning we met Fay and Chis who were both getting ready with their families and friends at the hotel. Carol got to ride in the Rolls Royce with the boys while I hopped on the mini bus with the guests to the Church and waited for Fay to arrive. The driver handily dropped her off round the corner so I didn’t get the chance for that “Getting out of the car with Dad” shot we love but did get them coming up the road. Not quite the same but still good.
St Andrews Church wedding
The vicar was lovely and let us do our thing which is fantastic and always worth a mention. He gave the couple a rubber duck so that they can solve any arguments in the bath (or something). Fay’s sister Georgina – also known as Callaghan – sang during the signing. As you can imagine that was amazing. It was her other sister Stephanie who recommended us. I’ve known Stephanie for a few years as we both went on a photography course together in 2012. The course wasn’t up to much but I made some great friends.
The Vermont Newcastle Christmas wedding reception
After the ceremony we all hopped on a coach back to the hotel for the reception, portraits, food, amazing sunset and party. As I said we love a Christmas wedding and with the right people and weather it was a wonderful way to finish 2017.
