15/12/16 - Laura & Stephen's wedding at Lartington Hall.

My first return for a year since the snow shot that rocked the media around the world.  Once again we were blessed with a different kind of weather in the form of smog.  Stephen and Laura were a lot of fun on the day and a few tears during the speeches, but whjat a great day.  The evening followed with a little fun outside with guests and a bit of spooky but cool photography FX in the smog.  A lovely day and couple to boot, congrats guys!

4/12/16 - Kirsty & Sean's wedding at Lumley Castle.

 

With little light outdoors there was plenty of things we could do inside Lumley Castle.  Just a mere spotlight in the main entrance to the dungeon, i had a feeling it hadn't been done before.  Both Kirsty and Sean were good sports though following my direction we got loads of stuff, the natural work we got was really nice too.  Congrats guys!

26/11/16 - Dr's Cara & Ben's wedding at the Baltic.

 

I loved this wedding simply for the urban landscape and industrial feel.  I gave Cara and Ben a list of options for their couple shots and this was one of the ideas they loved the most.  It was good to work with two hard working and smart people, but to also see their fun and relaxed sense of humour.  The speeches were absolutely hilarious!  We got some great work together guys, enjoy your honeymoon! xx

31/08/16 - Paris & Lee's Beach wedding at Doxford Barns.

 

Have you ever seen a beach wedding look this stunning? The comination of the right light and edit work brings this Californian glow right out as we hit the peak of the summer season.  The wedding was half Chineese and half English and it was lovely to see the two families coming together.  Paris's family were lovely to talk to as were Lee's and the beach was an amazing touch to an otherwise beautiful day.!

27/08/16 - Melissa & Eddie's Tipi wedding at their home, Hepscott Manor.

 

This was my first Tipi wedding and wow was it fun!  Mel and Eddie were completely awesome and the amount of work they had put into the setting in their home at Hepscott Manor was immense.  They had tipis, bands a large ceremony and a variety of sheep, cows, horses and dogs overlooking the wedding.  It weas basically like a really cool mini glastonbury party, with no expense spared.

Healey Barn seems to be a place for me to return to again and again.  Each time something different and something that suits the couple is my direction.  At this wedding we had a surprise at the speach and it brought everyone to tears laughing so as a little bonus shot with the boys we reintroduced the horse's head from the speech.  Classic! Congratualtions Gemma and David, a lovely couple!

26/06/16 - Katie & Robert's wedding at Newton Hall, Northumberland.

 

Katie and Robert were a nice couple who had a lovely religious ceremony at St Paul's in Alnwick but they also enjoyed the quirkyness of Newton Hall.  Everything was perfect on the day from timings to guests having a great time.  We got out for a few shots here and there including this one.  I love wedding dresses, the design and them fitting the bride and suiting her so well.  I guess no dresses are the same, they are all unique and i like that.  This one was no different but it coundnt be more fitting for Katie.

31/03/16 - Kayleigh & George's wedding at Newton Hall, Northumberland.

Newton Hall is one of those venues which has been photographed so many times but there is always a shot I can think of which is fresh and personal for the couple.  This was a great moment between moments where they finally got to relax away from the crowd and realise where they have come in their relationship.  I think every couple needs this time to reflect, rejoice and respond to the enormity of the day.

05/12/15 - Emily & Tom's wedding at Redworth Hall, Darlington.

I think its great when your couple are sweet and are just dying to get out of the crowd for a little awwww moment.  Its not easy being yourself for a photo so with a bit of guidance and help on the day from yours truly it becomes easy to feel relaxed and just let it out.  I want you to feel like you can express yourselves and show what you mean to each other and just capture the moment like this one was so fantastic.  It was awesome being a part of your day, I am so glad you felt I fit in so well to your day and we got some awesome photos because of this.  Have a lovley life together guys you are perfect for each other!  Paul.

20/04/16 - A nice review from Peter and Meg - a Ramside Hall Wedding Review.

This review says so much about my work, it's great, check it out.  Thank you Peter and Meg once again.


"We cannot recommend Paul highly enough - he is a great mix of natural talent, hard work, professionalism, and a friendly personality. We absolutely loved the photos we had seen on Paul's website and were absolutely thrilled when we found that he had a free date in his diary on our wedding day. 
When we spoke to Paul initially he was full of enthusiasm and this continued throughout our communication. When we met Paul for an engagement shoot, we were instantly at ease with him (although maybe not quite so at ease with the camera initially!) and knew that we had made the right choice for our wedding day.
Paul was brilliant on the wedding day and fitted in as if he was a guest. Paul is great at capturing formal pictures but also at capturing some natural moments that make you really remember how you felt at the time. We are beyond pleased with the photos we have of ourselves and of family and friends. These are memories and moments that have been captured perfectly and we can only say thank you again to Paul for providing us with such stunning photos."

04/04/16 - Doxford Barns Wedding Review by Emnma and Carl.

It isn't very often you get a last minute booking with only a few weeks before the wedding, because there is so much to organise but my hat comes off to these two for doing it in the time.  They wanted Doxford Barns and myself and there was availability now rather than later and now here we are.  They were insistent that I was the one for them and they knew I could capture their natural spirit and essence of their day.

What a great wedding this was, with so much life and personality.  A wedding with lots of professional entertainers, singers and comedians and Annette and Jamie had both appeared on television.  So the energy of the day was sublime, its nice that they took the time out to mention me on Facebook.

05/10/15 - Woodhill Hall Wedding Review

Its nice to get a mention on Facebook once in a while.  The hidden service you don't see in the images here.  Such as fixing the music system for the entrance, saving the cake from toppling over with the help of the wonderful staff at Woodhill, and fetching a key halfway through the ceremony to open a door so the bride didn't pass out.  Its rare that I brag about these little extras but I thought I might here its worth mentioning!

27/07/15 - Fay & Stephen, via Facebook

We used Paul for our wedding and we have to say thankyou Paul, you're amazing, not only did Paul do just the best job on the photos, but guests thought he was one of our guests, he blended in so well! You'l look through your photos and say 'when did he take that?!' I am a bit of a control freak really and Paul got our wedding album just perfect, even though he had to deal with me (thanks Paul). Because paul has done such an amazing job our venue has asked him to be their photographer and our friends who have weddings in the area are disappointed that they've already booked their photographers! Paul you should charge more! x

03/07/15 - Paul & Aimee, via Facebook

I didn't need to be recommended to Pauls photography, his photos spoke for themselves when I was researching who we wanted for our wedding day. He made us feel at ease, and I didn't even notice that he was there in the background taking all these beautiful photos on our amazing day at guyzance hall. 


Our venue was beautiful, but Paul just managed to make it look even more perfect with lots of natural shots of us and our family and friends. Whilst we were waiting to see our evening guests arrive he was already showing us edits that he had been doing whilst having his lunch. We then only had to wait a few hours to see them on Facebook and a few days later whilst on our travelling honeymoon around America, we received an email with a link to our photos whilst having a few drinks in a bar in New York and we couldn't believe the amount of beautiful photos there were. 


Paul allowed us to enjoy the rest of our honeymoon and once we were back he was constantly in touch making sure that our photos and album were perfect before we received them a few weeks later. 5*!! We will both be recommending him to anyone else getting married who wants a photographer who's not only at an affordable price, but who also gives you photos you can treasure forever and will get your whole friends and family talking about your wedding all over again.

11/06/15 - Ben & Hazel, via Facebook

We booked Paul for our Wedding photos and we are so pleased we did. His work is amazing, I love all the photo's from our wedding and engagement shoot. They are just perfect, he really does capture the story of the big day. Paul made us feel very comfortable and at ease, he is very friendly, professional and enthusiastic about his work. Thank you Paul, we are delighted with all our photos x

11/04/15 - Adam & Sinead, via Facebook

Adam and I just wanted to thank you for the amazing photographs you took of our wedding at Fawsley Hall. We had such a brilliant day and your photographs are a perfect example of everything that was fun and individual about our day. We’ve had more compliments than we can count on the images we have seen and have been singing your praises to all who will listen! The amount of time and effort you had put in the day before was incredible to make sure that everything ran smoothly on the big day. You were so patient with us and made the whole experience really fun. We cannot wait to see the finished album and get some pictures up on our wall. 


Thanks again


Adam and Sinead

08/04/15 - Paul & Marie, via Facebook


We have recently had our pre wedding shoot with Paul and he did a great job of makeing the experience feel very natural and relaxed, he works with you to bring out your best and doesn't stage manage the photos only offering help where it's needed. This allows you to forget that he is there. 

He has an easy going likable nature but you can tell he is passionate about his work and always wants to give you nothing but his best.

We are very much looking forward to seeing what photos he gets from our wedding!

Many thanks for all your hard work.


23/03/15 - Alison & Stephen, via Facebook

We have just had our pre wedding photo shoot with Paul and we are thrilled and over the moon with the photo's. He made the shoot fun and helped us feel at ease throughout as neither myself or my fiance have had professional photos taken before. His enthusiam for our shoot for what would make a great picture resulted in awesome photo's. 


Roll on our wedding day for more fantastic photo's....cant wait! 


Thanks again Paul x

"Paul Liddement did an amazing job with our wedding photos! Natural and creative, everyone has commented on how great 

our album is!   So much so my cousin has booked him for his 2015 wedding!"   Thanks Paul for the beautiful photos of our

 beautiful day!

Michelle & Carl July 2014

 

-------------------------------


 

“When we were looking for a wedding photographer, we were looking for something quite different and not traditional.  We wanted someone to fit in with our day and how we wanted it.  We were recommended to Paul by another photographer.


Paul came to meet us at our home.  Straight away he made us feel at ease.  We chatted a lot about how we met, our favourite things and family and friends.  All the time we were casually chatting Paul was documenting everything down, he wanted it all to be personal to us, and we can honestly say, it was.  Paul captured it just as it was, a fantastic happy celebration for us, our families and friends.  The shots are natural, clever and artistic. 


Paul is a warm, down to earth person, and whilst he's taking photographs, you are having the time of your life.  To be honest some of the time we forgot he was there, that's how non invasive he is.  He has a calm character, and makes everyone feel relaxed about having their picture taken.  We have some great shots of the children having a great time.


Our Album and cd is full of fantastic happy memories on the best day of our lives.


Thank you Paul.  (A true artist)”


Kim and Mark July 2014



-------------------------------


"Paul has such a lovely relaxed style but with the confidence knowing that Paul has done all the background work and is completely in control - checking out venues and the best places to get those memorable shots prior to the big day and linking in with the wedding hosts too. Paul's relaxed attitude made sure we felt the same way all day. 

 


We loved Paul's subtle humour and the way he really complimented me and my daughter and made us feel so special and beautiful. He fitted in as if he was part of the day but was really unobtrusive when he needed to be when our intimate wedding day required it. 


 


Nothing was too much trouble and Paul was happy to accommodate our last minute requests with total patience - a long, long day for him but he didn't show it even when we forgot to feed him at the night time ! 


 

One of our favourite images is the ones of heather and I on the bed and also the black and white ones of the boys on the fence - also the ones of Kenny and I round the walls of Berwick especially the one that shows my legs to their best lol!! Love them all and the one of my niece dancing with my brother is very special too. 


 

One of the biggest 'surprise' images. The ones taken of people dancing at night and the one of me and Kenny dancing when we have obviously been enjoying the wine! 


 

We would reccommend him without hesitation - Paul is a hidden gem and we were blessed to have found him!"

"You immediately put us at ease with your relaxed, yet professional, manner.  You were great fun when we were getting ready at my parents house, had a discreet presence throughout the ceremony and were able to take control of our unruly guests for the more formal photographs!  

 

In all honesty you felt like one of the guests at our wedding and due to this you were able to capture natural moments in your pictures.  Our photos arrived quickly and are a joy to look at as you have captured the spirit of our special day." 

 

Sam & John October 2013

"Paul photographed our September 2013 wedding and we have to say, he exceeded all expectations.

 

He was professional, personable and an overall joy to have directing us on our special day.  

 

He took some really beautiful pictures we were unaware of until we received our DVD, I cannot even describe how impressed we were. All of the pictures were fabulous we had a hard time choosing which ones to print. 

 

Thank you Paul for helping to make our wedding day so memorable"

 

Karen and Martin September 2013

"Paul was brilliant from the outset. Friendly and down to earth, Paul was just the type of wedding photographer that we were looking for. He was great at capturing natural photos as well as traditional formal photos that together tell a story of the day. We are very happy with the photos and would have no hesitation in recommending Paul to others."


 


Elaine & Mark Beamish Hall 27th September 2013.

"We had great fun working with Paul on our wedding day, he was easy to work with and made us feel very comfortable. He was great with the kids which really helped, as getting lots of family photos was really important to us. 

 


We wanted lots of natural shots of our guests to capture the happiness and love we wanted to share with everyone. Paul did a great job of this and our album is filled with happiness. 

 


My husband loved one photo so much that he got the image tattooed onto himself. 
We loved working with Paul, he helped make our day so special, we would definitely recommend him" 


 

Louise and Mark August 2013

"I wanted to very belatedly thank you for all you did for us last June with regards our wedding in Helsinki. You made a huge effort in coming over for it, beyond what is normally asked and kindly within your normal rates. We were both so much happier having a photographer there whom we trusted and knew, and also somebody who is just a good bloke! 

 

The results were stunning and we were very pleased with them. Of the friends that have seen them, they have said that they are some of the best wedding photos that they have seen. 

 

We hope that you enjoyed the weekend as much as we did. As most people find on their wedding weekends, we found we could not spend as much time as we wished with most people for a good natter, and the same was that we could not spend as much time with you".

 

James and Maria August 2013

 

---------------------------------

 


"A big thank you for making our wedding day so special. You captured so many special memories that we are able to look back on and we absolutely love our wedding album which is displayed on your website. 

 

You are such a friendly easy going guy who puts everyone at ease to capture those special moments. You are definitely recommended by us to anyone who wants to know. Many thanks"


 


Catherine and Michael married 21st June 2013

"I would like to start by saying I am the groom in pictures on the beach holding the chalk boards with my wife saying “Always” and “Forever”. We are also the couple kissing on the beach where the sky is bright blue and my wife is holding her shoes.

 

Being very aware that planning a wedding was going to be very stressful, my wife and I knew that selecting a photographer wasn’t going to be an easy task. 

 

We wanted a combination of someone that was extremely talented to get the best pictures for our perfect day, someone that was friendly so that our guests would respond positively to them, and let’s face it someone that was reasonably priced. We are so lucky we met Paul because we got all of these and much, much more!

 

We are so glad we did as the work Paul put in on the day and the work he produced were amazing! On several pictures friends and family members commented to us that we looked like actors, or models. They weren’t just saying that to be nice either, they really meant it. On the day of our wedding all of our guests kept saying how friendly he was, some even thought he was a friend doing the photographs for us because he was so comfortable around everyone. 

 

When we got our album and disc back after the wedding, I was surprised how many photos Paul had taken. It was nice to see he had captured our day perfectly and some once in a life time moments. Paul had managed to capture that and it brought back some lovely memories.

 

I am so glad we came across Paul’s website and met with him. He has an eye for detail and honestly does see fantastic photo opportunities that others do not. He was fantastic on the day, dare I say he was a workaholic, and all of our guests loved him."

 

Gavin & Louise 5th May 2013

 

---------------------------

 


"We cannot recommend highly enough Paul Liddement's Photography. Not only did Paul produce a fantastic range of formal and natural shots of our wedding day, he exceeded our expectations from beginning to end.

 

He was a great combination of professional and friendly which ensured he got the best pictures and the most out of our day.

 

Not only did he make us feel this way, all of our guests have commented on his style and approach and quality of work. We are very happy with our wedding album which tells the story of our whole day - amazing. Thank you Paul.

 

Feel free to view our wedding pictures on Paul's Facebook page."
