As You Like It wedding photography in December

This was my third wedding at As You Like it in Jesmond... and once again I was blown away with so many amazing little touches. This venue really is a hidden gem! And Carly and Naomi personalised their wedding there in December wonderfully.

As You Like It wedding photography is tricky for an available light photographer like me because the lighting is so atmospheric, which creates a fantastic mood, but it is so dark!
But, even despite the challenges, As You Like It is my favourite Newcastle venue. Not only because of the unique decor and atmosphere but because it attracts such brilliant couples!

In December I had the pleasure of photographing Naomi and Carly’s wedding at As You Like It.

The day began with bridal preparations at Naomi’s house – with three excited young bridesmaids and a page boy, there was plenty of energy!

The guests were all pouring into As You Like it, being greeted by Carly, and then exclaiming the obligatory “Wow” just as they entered the ceremony room. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a guest come into Frangipani and not be shocked at how magical it is!

After the lovely ceremony, guests all went up for delicious canapes and drinks while we did a few photos and everyone mingled.

The guests were called back into Frangipani for the wedding breakfast, it was transformed again, and another set of “Wow”s were exclaimed upon entry!

Congratulations to Carly and Naomi, what a beautiful wedding, a magical venue and a lovely bunch of guests. And thank you for allowing me to be an As You Like It wedding photographer again.
