Ellingham Hall Pre Wedding – Lucy & Phillip

We are really enjoying this season of pre wedding shoots, with a very varied range of locations and believe it or not the extremes of weather! We met Lucy & Phillip one foggy afternoon at Jesmond Dene to catch up with plans for their forthcoming wedding at the lovely Ellingham Hall in Northumberland.

Jesmond Dene is a great place  to photograph as it is a unique haven of peace and tranquility in the middle of Newcastle. It is a narrow wooded valley that follows the river Ouseburn between South Gosforth and Jesmond Vale. This 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.

Stan really enjoyed exploring the Park once more, with Lucy & Phillip. The bridge with the fog lurking around had a distinct Parisian feel to it, but once they ventured further the soft light and verdant surroundings made for some great images.
