Charmain & Craig chose to have their Pre Wedding Shoot in Jesmond Dene. If you are not familiar with Jesmond Dene it is a haven of tranquility in the middle of Newcastle. It is a narrow wooded valley that follows the river Ouseburn between South Gosforth and Jesmond Vale, which provides an important wildlife corridor right into the centre of Newcastle. There is a spectacular mix of native and exotic trees, and the Dene is home to a lot of wildlife, notably the Kingfisher, the Red Squirrel and many woodland birds. Jesmond Dene also has strong historical links with 19th Century industrial development and landscape design – Lord Armstrong’ s influence being very apparent, with a large network of paths and bridges throughout.
