Real Moments Real Memories

“You will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” 

In years to come when you look back at your wedding, the photographs will be retelling your story as it unfolded, with all the tears, laughs and even the weird bits. A wedding photograph captured as it happens is a real moment in time. 

I know you will fall in love with your wedding photos and keep falling in love every time you look back at them.

It was the first time I’ve photographed a wedding at Shotton Grange down on the front lawn, but WOW. With a mixture of autumnal colours, the low sun, gorgeous back drop and the most sensational couple made it an absoloute perfect wedding.

Hey, I’m Leighton

A Newcastle wedding photographer, who loves to click, travel & Cycle.

I like to take DAMN good photos with pretty awesome people.

It’s fair to say I am the best climbing frame, bouncy castle, pirate, princess, singer, dancer, roller coaster, book reader, pony & sweet sharer. Well, that’s according to my daughter Nancy, haha and when Charley Bear is big enough I’m sure I’ll be doing it all again. Yes, I’m lucky to be surrounded by 3 amazing ladies. My Mrs Katie, is my rock, soul mate and a best friend she knows how to spur me on, as well as keeping me reigned in. (When I need to be) I’m clearly going to be outnumbered in any decision making for the next 20 years. It’s also probably why I always get a little tearful when it comes to fathers first look, walking down the aisle, speech and father-daughter dance.
When not photographing, w-editing and spending time with the family, I’m a lycra wearing, lane hogging cyclist who likes cake & coffee 🙂 
Feel free to take a nosey at The Bainbridge pics.
A big thank you to Adam Chetter Film’s for the snap opposite (or above if you’re on a mobile)

How to feel 100% comfortable with your wedding photographer Newcastle.

I love the emotion and fun a wedding in Newcastle day brings, I still get butterflies before every wedding. So documenting and capturing these unique and special moments comes so natural to me. It is crazy how many couples say they hate getting their Newcastle wedding photography taken, like 99%. I capture real and unposed emotion, laughter and tears as they happen, I have many little tricks to get true feelings with loads of interactions between you both, easing any awkward, cheesy photos.
You won’t even know I’m taking photos.
It’s hard for me to describe my style, as so many factors go into a wedding day. Every couple & venue are different, the weather & sun can also have a huge effect on your wedding photographs. I love to chase and play with the light, often getting my self into some sticky situations but always worth it for amazing wedding photography Newcastle.

  • Leighton, you really did go above and beyond our expectations, Our pictures look absolutely stunning. You made us feel so relaxed, and loads of people from the party commented on our pictures and how good you were on the day, mixing with the guests and helping out where ever you could. We would recommend to anyone. 

    Rebecca & Andrew
  • Just dropping an email to say thank you so so much. We’ve eventually had a chance to look through all the pictures and I can honestly say I love every single one. I love how natural they are and the ones which we have posed for they look so professional, not cheesy at all. People have said they look like there out of a magazine 😀 haha. I’m also so impressed with how much you’ve managed to capture. You must be knackered after a full day off that. Nonstop. There all amazing. I’m sure we will be in touch in the future for more pictures of the little chunk etc. I’ll make sure I will pass your name on whenever I can as I would highly recommend you to everyone!

    Nicola & Gareth
  • Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly. We couldn’t be happier with the photos. You were a pleasure to have around, remained so calm, super patient and NOT invasive at all.
