Nick and Jess’s wedding took place in September 2016, the ceremony took place at the incredible St George’s Church in Jesmond (one of the most stunning church’s I have photographed) followed by the reception in the grounds of the exclusive wedding venue Capheaton Hall in Northumberland. I have fallen in love with this venue.
The day was very laid back with simple and elegant details. The marquee was delicately decorated with hues of grey, white and spots of pink. However, much of the day was spent celebrating in the gardens of Capheaton Hall making the most of the beautiful surroundings and the amazing weather.
Jess wore the most stunning Atelier Pronovias gown (with killer train) and a pair of sparkly Jimmy Choos. Her perfectly undone hair by Zahra at Boilerhouse and makeup done by herself and a close friend, Jen Aziz created the perfect bridal look.
Kind words from Jess and Nick…
‘I met Melissa at a wedding fair and instantly fell in love with her work. Her style was everything I had been looking for and even the presentation of her albums and USB box were gorgeous! She was an absolute dream on the day and lovely to have around in the morning. Apart from the obligatory posed photos throughout the day, you wouldn’t have known she was there. She captured the happiness of the day in a series of natural photos, which is exactly what we wanted. She also photographed all the little details of the wedding, which are so nice to look back on. I would highly recommend Melissa!’
