30th July 2016 I was asked by a very good ex-Naval friend to photograph her niece and fiancé at Jesmond Dene House Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne after their return from their real wedding in Greece. Needless to say I was over the moon at the opportunity to do a photoshoot at this location. Its a beautiful location especially from a photographers point of view. Im hoping you agree too??

I was a little worried as I’d never met them before, well not Dan anyway and Emma only once before. I worried for no reason, they were great to work with, lovely and friendly and eager to please even helping with some improvised poses of their own. haha. I made the mistake of leaving my camera with Dan while I ran over to my bag to get another speed light. I found some extra images on my flash drive I hadn’t bargained for!!!

28th May 2016 I had the pleasure of being asked to be the second shooter at the very special wedding of Emma & Anth at the South Causey Inn, at Stanley in County Durham. The main shooter was Leighton Bainbridge of Chester Le Street. It was a fantastic day and so well planned by the couple. Anth was a very particular young man, even insisting the groomsmen all grew beards, so I understand anyway. They catered for every need, there was a small pony for the kids, sweets, you name it.

An excellent, if tiring day was had by all. Thank you for letting me be a part of it.

Its with great pleasure that I can now show you the Personalised USB Flash Drive presentation boxes for our wedding customers. They come in a choice of White and Black and White. There is a choice of USB drives also ranging from silver Heart shaped USB drives or the crystal as shown in the images. Im sure they will prove very popular. We do have a couple of sample Wedding Albums on the way. We use the Italian company Graphistudio to produce our Wedding Albums. I can’t wait to see them myself.

Hello world!

Welcome to our Blog.

Can I take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I’m Duncan and I have to admit I have never presented a blog before so please bear with me and I’ll try and make it as interesting and hopefully amusing to you as possible. We are a new company to the wedding world, but no stranger to professional photography. I began four years ago shooting products, which we still do now. The wedding photography kicked off in September 2015 when a dear friend, Emily Pearson invited me to shoot as a third at a wedding at Lumley Castle, a Chester-le-Street venue. All though it was hard work I loved it; I struggled with the pace of things and trying to get in the right place at the right bearing in mind I wasn’t sure where the right place was or what time it was and didn’t want to get in the way of Emily and her second shooter. I felt and probably was clumsy!! However,  I was really pleased to learn some of my images were used by Emily for the couples collection. That was it, I was hooked. Emily kindly invited me to play second shooter in February 2016 at another fantastic venue, Matfen Hall in Northumberland. Having been given the responsibility of photographing the groom and his men I was really nervous now . Even more so when I arrived and was introduce to them by Emily who nonchalantly pointed out that the groom “wasn’t into having his photo taken”!!! Thanks!! As it turned out they were a great bunch of lads and we got some good shots. Some of which were once again used by Emily for the couples collection. I have to say Emily has been a huge help as well as mentor and its a huge debt of thanks I owe to her. I think its only fair to plug her photography business in return for all her help and advice, which is Captured Hearts Photography.


Since then we have covered several events including a Tough Mudder in  Nottinghamshire, so much fun!! an Engagement for a lovely local couple called Ratisha and Al, a magazine shoot for an Art Exhibition at the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle upon Tyne and a project/portrait session for a very good friend and her two sons. Although the occasion was a solemn affair the shoot was excellent and produced excellent results. Coming up is a wedding on 30th July 2016 for Emma and Dan in the Jesmond Dene Hotel, followed by a Wedding Fayre being held on 7th August at the Rugby Club in Consett, County Durham. not to mention the bookings we have taken for next year. I shall keep you posted as and when they develop.



We have just returned from a trip to London where I discovered a Church just off Fleet street called “St Brides Church”. Theres nothing unusual in that I guess. However, The steeple was the tallest designed and built by Sir Christopher Wren and more interestingly, it was the inspiration for the first tiered wedding cake. If you ever find yourself in the area have a gander its well worth it especially if you are interested in archaeology, Roman history etc. The original roman foundations can be seen in the crypt downstairs. I took a couple of pictures to share with you including the steeple and I’m sure you’ll agree it does look like a tiered wedding cake.
