Anthea and Oliver chose St George’s Church in Cullercoats for their wedding ceremony and The Copthorne Hotel in Newcastle for their reception. Sadly the church does not permit photography of the ceremony . A marriage 10 years its the making, it was a wedding filled with love and laughter surrounded by their family and friends.
Thank you to you both for your kind words, I wish you all the happiness in the world x
The Love Story
We met in Ibiza 10 years ago whilst we were both on holiday. We knew in Ibiza that we were meant for each other and that we met our soulmate. We had a long distance relationship for 6 years and although hard at times we always had our exciting goal of living up here together and getting married at heart.
The best part of the Wedding Day

Anthea – Us saying our vows to each other and our first dance.
We wanted to share our love for each other and our love for Ibiza with our nearest and dearest. It was great fun giving everyone a taste of Ibiza in Newcastle! Glitter, glow sticks and great music!
The Wedding details
The dress I chose was the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted. I wasn’t even going to try it on but after trying a fitted fish tail style dress I knew I wasn’t going to be able to throw shapes at the reception in it! When I tried my dress on I felt like a princess and loved that I could actually move and breathe! I loved the lace detail and sparkles. I came across some fab ideas on Pinterest for wedding flowers. I loved the idea of floral fans as I felt they were in fitting with our Ibizan theme, quirky and beautiful. It was a hot day so they came in useful too!
Why was photography important to you?
Photographs contain memories and moments forever and it was important to us to find someone who we connected with to capture our special day.
After meeting Michelle we quickly realised how incredible she is! Her passion, style and attention to detail (even things we had not thought about) blew us away. Michelle gave us so many ideas and guidance for other parts of the wedding and really helped guide us into making some important decisions. On the day Michelle was fantastic and so many of our guests have commented on how great she was and how much she helped out. At the start of the day she was helping the hairdressers with my hair and later fixed my underskirt in my dress! She really went above and beyond on our day and we recommend her highly to anyone.
The advice for future Brides and Grooms
Don’t be afraid to choose things out of the ‘norm’ if it’s what you both love. Your wedding is a celebration of your love as a couple so give people a taste of your personality and interests. Most importantly… have fun and enjoy every moment!
The best part about being married
Being able to call each other husband and wife everyday!
