Sam and Tom’s fun wedding at Halton Grove in Corbridge

Sam and Tom had their fun wedding at the beautiful Halton Grove venue. They chose it for its outdoor and indoor spaces, mature trees, gardens, and beautiful surroundings. The modern-traditional interiors and the option to hire it for the whole weekend made it perfect for their big day.

Sam and Tom wanted their wedding photos to capture the essence of their day – fun, thoughtfully planned, and full of beautiful details. From the color scheme to surprise entertainment, they thought of everything. Sam even organized a surprise disco room for Tom, who loves to party.

Despite their wedding being in February, the weather was warm enough for an outdoor ceremony, which always adds a special touch to photos. The day was filled with laughter, love, and unforgettable moments – it was magical and I’m very grateful I got to spend all day with them.

I love to document couples like Sam and Tom who put so much heart and creativity into their special day. It was an honor to be a part of such a beautiful celebration.

I asked Sam and Tom what they wanted from the wedding photography and this is what they said:

Sam: I love beautiful photos and little details whereas Tom is more interested in having fun photos and capturing candid moments, which is why we’re so happy that we’ve picked you as I think you capture both so perfectly. Don’t get me wrong, I too love candid photos but I also like editorial-style photos, anyway, ultimately I would love to have beautiful photos that will capture one of the best day of our lives.

I love the way you use light in your photography, they’re not overly bright or white and they seem to have a depth to them and I love that your photos don’t have a grey, orange or white filter to them, the colours seem true to life and yet they also seem to have pops of colour. If at any point we’re inside and you think the light outside is beautiful, please feel free to take us outside! 

Tom: I want to capture how much fun everyone is having, whilst still having the pictures look elegant and beautiful. Having looked at a lot of your pictures we feel that your style does this perfectly, which is the exact reason why you were our first choice! When we were looking at photographers there were some who’s style was very pretty, but very white and very formal, which I felt sapped away some of the energy. On the flip side some captured the energy and fun, but that I felt looked similar to the photos you might see from a nightclub photographer. We’re looking for the best of both!

After the wedding, I sent them sneaky peeks and I  received an email from Sam saying this:

MAGDA!!!!!!! Wow. We’re currently in Manila very jet lagged, but these photos – omg. I don’t even know where to begin – they are so so beautiful, those especially at sunset – the light is so so beautiful, truly incredible and they’re from OUR WEDDING!!!! And all of those beautiful details, photos of the guests, the light, the movement, the colours and just everything!!!! We are so so lucky to have had you as our photographer, and really you felt more like a friend. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so so much.
