Locations

Some of my favourite venues in Northumberland include:

  • Linden Hall

    Macdonald Linden Hall is, without doubt, one of the region's finest
    wedding venues. The manicured estate and floral borders around the
    entrance and Secret Garden are ideal for group photography, whilst
    the original Georgian entrance, with its soaring pillars, is perfect
    for capturing the arrival of guests and carriages. Whilst enjoying
    Linden Kir and welcoming guests, I find this an excellent opportunity
    to secure informal images, giving your album a real sense of
    enjoyment and atmosphere .


  • Matfen Hall can cater for a party of up to 120 for a wedding breakfast and up to 250 for an  evening reception within our East Wing.

It is part of the photographers job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveler who enters a strange country.- Bill Brandt
