Viridis & Francis – Pre-wedding and “Trash The Dress” in Newcastle

Lately, our beloved city – Newcastle, has become an increasingly popular location for our pre-wedding sessions.  Instead of having their pre-wedding in the more well-known cities like Paris or Prague, our recent clients have opted for Newcastle!

Not surprising though for those who have not heard of this city will wonder what is it like to have their pre-wedding in Newcastle?  Are there any beautiful backdrops?

Well, here are some photographs and album design of Viridis & Francis who had their pre-wedding in Newcastle.  You decide.  Enjoy!

V & Francis braved the waters at Whitley Bay and jumped into the cold waters of the North Sea.  Later during lunch, I asked them how they felt about the photoshoot?  I did not expect them to say “Trash The Dress” is their favourite experience!  I mean, if I were Viridis, I would be quite upset to see my beautiful gown turn into a soggy, muddy dress.  But then I suppose you do not get to trash your dress everyday, do you… so it must be quite liberating!

From the look on their faces, V & Francis seemed genuinely happy!  Looks like they were honest when they said they ENJOYED the session with me!  So, V trashed her brand-new Mori Lee dress.  And she is still smiling. I am the lucky photographer!

Time for some classic photographs.  This is Viridis in her amazing Vera Wang dress – Audrey in Luxe Collection.  So beautiful.  The dress is worth ALL of my camera equipment added up together and more!  Francis is equally dashing in his Hugo Boss tuxedo.

A visit to Alnwick Castle (where Harry Potter was filmed), this time, V is in her Maggie Sottero dress with a long train for maximum impact.

They say when you are in love, you cannot stop smiling.  It is true when you see Viridis and Francis together.  Love this shot.



  1. With a smiling couple who are deeply in love + a skillful photog, u can create the most beautiful photos with the most boring of backdrops.

    Keep up the good work, Ken!
