Adele & Sean
“Ray shot our wedding on Sunday 24th March and what can we say, the Images are outstanding – we can’t stop looking at them! So happy we chose Ray to shoot our wedding and he did not disappoint. All of our guests got on with Ray and as did we. His work is fantastic, we felt it was really important to get someone who is professional, confident and knowledgeable regarding photography and to find someone who would capture our full day and get top quality Images and Ray has blew us away. We would highly recommend, thank you for everything. Love Mr & Mrs Williamson x”
How did you both meet?
So believe it or not being both from Newcastle I actually met Sean in a nightclub in Leeds. We had all gone down in a massive group. We ended up speaking because he kept pesting me then went over to some seats to chat.. then he wouldn’t leave me alone when we got home.
Why did you chose your venue over all the others?
We viewed a couple venues and I always wanted to look at Newton Hall. When I showed Sean the photos we decided to go to the Newton Hall wedding showcase and just fell in love. The most exciting was knowing we would have the venue all to ourselves with no one else just family and friends made it extra special. The rooms are all unique with amazing interior design and it’s very vintage. I always remember driving into newton hall and that long path just makes you feel so in love instantly. The staff at Newton Hall were all amazing and couldn’t do anything more for us they were all truely amazing.
Why did you select Ray as your Newton Hall Wedding Photographer?
When we were looking for our photographer it wasn’t an easy job. We wanted someone we instantly clicked with and where photos are top quality. I followed Ray on insta and Facebook as well as a few others and kept getting blown away by his pictures. We also love Ray’s unique quirkiness in his photos, they are nothing that we had seen before.
What was the highlight of your day?
The hightlight of our day was the No1 Singing Waiters. They were incredible and really got everyone in the party spirit. We kept it a surprise from everyone so when they came out it was amazing seeing everyone’s reactions then everyone just singing along having an amazing time.
Advice for other brides and grooms?
Just sit back relax and enjoy every second. Don’t stress or anything as I was so laid back I just let everything fall into place it was lush to see everything happen after all the planning. Have ten minutes for just you and your hubby to be as we sat and had our first drink together as a married couple. And smile smile smile it’s the best day of your life.
