A Wedding at Blanchlands Abbey and Healey Barn // Northumberland

Kayleigh and Andrew were married at Blanchlands Abbey, which is situated on the west side of Derwent Reservoir in Northumberland. It’s a quaint little village that looks like something off a television period drama. Such a beautiful place all in all and they had the weather to match. There was a nervous and contagious excitement in the air as our couple prepared for the wedding at the fantastic accommodation of the Lord Crewe Arms, situated next door to Blanchlands Abbey.

After the wedding, confetti was thrown in their faces, they had a pint and meandered through the Derwent valley to Healey Barn where the wedding reception took place. I have to say, Haley barn is now one of my very favourite wedding venues. It has an above average number of windows per square foot 🙂 I’m quite a big fan of windows. I also like sunshine and smiling wedding guests, thankfully Healey Barn had those in abundance too. Shooting wedding photorgaphy at Healey Barn was a real pleasure, and we luckily had the opportunity to have a few minutes to shoot some portraits in the evening as the sun was getting low in the sky.

Here are a hand picked selection of my favourite images from the day 🙂
