Another year over and I thought I'd take this opportunity to have a glance back at what happened in 2012.
I was looking forward to photographing some familiar venues and some new venues.
The first wedding of the year saw me back at Linden Hall again, after having my first ever bride stopping traffic as she walked to church.
I was also back at one of my favourite venues, Dissington Hall, for an absolutely gorgeous late summer wedding.
I was really pleased to be back at Embleton Hall as well, which is where I got married.
Of the new venues, I was really looking forward to photographing a wedding at the Great North Museum in Newcastle. After the ceremony, the museum closed and the guests were able to wander around on their own. I got some interesting shots of people looking at the exhibits.
Another new venue for me was the stunning Newton Hall. A fun beach pre-wedding shoot and some great beach shots on the wedding day.
Aside from the weddings, I was involved in the Oxfam International Women's Day in Morpeth back in March and was extremely honoured to be a finalist in the Wedding Guide's Awards for Excellent Customer Service in September.
I was also involved in my first ever styled photo shoot - A Medieval Banquet. More photos will follow soon!
I have had the privilege of photographing lots of fantastic couples this year and have met some great suppliers and friends through networking. I'm looking forward to meeting more great people in 2013 and hope everyone has a fabulous New Year!
Thank you to everyone for reading my blog over this year. Gillian x
