Wedding for Two in Northumberland
Sarah and Luke wanted a quiet simple wedding day, just for the two of them in Northumberland. So they chose to Elope to Bamburgh Castle. This spectacular venue was to be a place which was already special to them, and the castle offers a package just for two, it was an instant fit for their dream Northumberland Elopement. Bamburgh Castle sit on top of the most amazing wild beach, yet offers all the grandeur to make those special memories last.
Bamburgh Castle Elopement
Their intimate and relaxed modern wedding allowed them to celebrate just how they fancied, with a freezing cold dip in the north sea! Bamburgh Castle is a place that already held lots of romantic and adventure based memories for the two of them, with the sea, and being outdoors being what draws them closer together. They reached out to me to photograph their elopement based on my adventure wedding work, and knowing Bamburgh Castle well, and being one of their recommended suppliers. They booked my hourly Just for Two Package for three hours, and that was the perfect amount of time we needed for First Look, the Ceremony, a walk and explore of the beach and the sea, before finally taking a refreshing dip (fully clothed!)
First look… The Umbrella Shots
They chose to stay in nearby Doxford Hall, where they could spa, and sauna, and be well fed in the gorgeous restaurant there. So I headed to meet them there (with an armful of umbrellas) as they wished to use the grounds for a sneak first look moment! Sarah looked totally gorgeous in her Ted Baker cream lace midi dress, paired with some beautiful slingback shoes. Luke was wonderfully nervous before he saw Sarah in her bridal wear for the first time, and it was a lovely little moment when he turned toward her. The gardens provided some gorgeous framing and symmetry for their images and the rain created a reflective and moody look.
Rainy elopement in Northumberland
Despite the day before being glorious (as was the day after) their wedding day was incredibly wet! But it didn’t dampen their spirits, and anyway… said Sarah… we are going in the sea at the after the ceremony. Miraculously as our time together drew to an end, the sea fret and rain completely disappeared and the sun provided a bit of warmth (but not enough to dry off!)
