Beamish Hall
wedding photographer.

Jess + Alex’s Beamish Hall Wedding was my second wedding of 2021 and wow It was awesome. Such a lovely couple with great family and fun friends. Jess’ father had restored a vintage mini for her so they brought it to the wedding. Theres a cool photo of her driving the car below.

We had a scare the moment the registrar opened his mouth at the ceremony – of course we were outside – it started to sprinkle haha, it never got heavy so we all just plodded on and it was magical.

I love an outdoor wedding – Jess + Alex’s ceremony really gave off Italian wedding vibes, Its was ace.

As the day went on everything was just perfect. I especially loved everyone being outside and enjoying the lawn games; Badminton, croquet, bean bag toss and don’t forget Beer Pong, always good for a laugh and great reaction photographs. Every time I went over one of the girls sunk a ball, sorry boys. haha

It was truly an epic wedding and I loved every second. Massive kudos to Hayley for being my Second Photographer for the day. #dreamteam

Here are some of my favourite moments from Jess + Alex’s wedding at Beamish Hall – Beamish

My husband and I hired Ray to do our wedding photography. Since the day we first met Ray he has been open, honest, and a delight to work with. On our wedding day he arrived early, he put everyone at ease and was quick to make us all laugh. Everyone at the wedding commented on how great he was at putting them at ease and how stunning the photos came out. The photos we recieved back we could not be more happy with, we are actually torn on which photos to have printed as we don’t have the wall space for all of them. We really could not have picked anyone better and hope to work with him again at some point. 100/10 would recommend.
