Wild Northumbrian Wedding - Northumberland Wedding Videographer

What made you choose Wild Northumbrian as your venue?

We had stayed there a number of times in different seasons throughout the years we lived in Newcastle and took a trip over from Northern Ireland not long after we got engaged. Steve lived in Newcastle for 9 years and Sophie for 6 so we had a strong connection with the North East and almost as many friends and family there as in Northern Ireland. Wild Northumbrian itself and the surround countryside boasts so much natural beauty and provided such a scenic blank canvas. The owners, Rob and Vicky have always been so friendly and welcoming that all the elements of the location just felt right.

What made you choose Shoot Me Now Films to document your day?

We were really impressed with your previous work when we started looking at various videographers, we felt the unique style would suit the unique wedding we were hoping to have, and when we first spoke we were so pleased to immediately be on the same page.

What do you guys do?

Steve – Social Media Consultant Sophie – Carer What is important in life to you? Spending time with our growing family and close friends, spoiling our pets, and traveling to new places together.

How do you spend your days?

We are usually found out walking around Ireland with our dog Clarence, in the kitchen cooking together, or on the sofa binging on boxsets.

The proposal, how did it happen, what is the story?

We took a trip to Edinburgh for our 5-year anniversary, staying in the hotel where we had spent our first anniversary. Sophie thought it was just a one-night stay but Steve had booked a second night as a surprise and so arranged a fake checkout after which we walked the grounds of the hotel with Steve proposing on a bench where we had sat during our first anniversary stay.

What kind of experience did you want for your guests from your wedding?

We wanted our wedding to be a unique experience to match the surroundings, a relaxed and informal day for our friends and family to enjoy, and a personal celebration of our relationship and love for each other.
