St Aiden's Church Bamburgh http://shonabranigan.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/st-aidens-church-bamburgh I have photographed a few times at St Aidens now and its always a delight to head up to Bamburgh. We are so lucky in Northumberland. Its a beautiful church with a fabulous long walk to the door. This couple had their Marquee in the field next to the church which was  astounding location and we were blessed with beautiful weather too. Pretty sunset and Bamburgh castle all lit up as I left after the first dance.

A lot of excited anticipation for the arrival of the bride at Ponteland Methodist Chapel. Blending in with the guests and the atmosphere at the Chapel as everyone arrives and gets ready for the bride. I love this part of the day, it feels very special. It's also the time that I can get to know everyone as they arrive.

St James Church Wedding http://shonabranigan.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/st-james-church-wedding Another lovely wedding at St James Church Riding Mill. There are different ways of exiting the church after the ceremony and meeting your guests. For this wedding the couple chose to come out and then walk around to the other church door where we could take a few quick photos and then go inside for some near the Alter. this gave the guests time to leave the church through the main door and they were ready with cheers and confetti when the couple emerged. Whichever wedding I am photographing I fit in with the plans of the bride and groom, and those conducting the ceremony, in this way it all goes smoothly and gently.

St James Church Riding Mill Wedding http://shonabranigan.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/st-james-church-riding-mill-wedding Church weddings are a great opportunity for informal relaxed photos and I love the atmosphere of waiting at the church for the Bridal car to arrive. Coming out of the church after the ceremony is a lovely time for candid shots of the congratulations and everyone's best wishes. Just the time for the photography to be the quiet observer until when the buzz naturally dies down,then to do some quick groups at the church door.
