Choosing a Wedding Photographer

Choosing a Wedding Photographer

There is no denying the views of Northumberland here at Vallum are beautiful. They create the perfect backdrop on a wedding day, come rain or shine. We often find ourselves snapping away at the sunrise on our way into work! Over the years we have worked with an array of talented photographers. There is nothing we love more than seeing the finished photographs after a big day, and it is always exciting to see how each photographer portrays Vallum in a different way!

Once couples have found the perfect venue, the next step is to choose a photographer that compliments there personal style as well as budget. Whether you are looking for something relaxed and rustic or elegant and romantic, there is a photographer out there for everyone. It would be pretty dull if they were all the same! Luckily, the North is bursting with talent when it comes to photographers.

Today, it is rather easy to find a photographer online and sites such Pinterest as Instagram are a huge help.  Couples are able to have a taste of what each photographer can offer before they choose their perfect match.

At Vallum we are fully supportive of local businesses who we have enjoyed working with during a Wedding day. It fills us with pride to see photographers showing Vallum at its best. Our team always give recommendations once couples have booked with us, and it is lovely to welcome back photographers time and time again.


Verity Johnson

Verity Johnson has photographed numerous Weddings here at Vallum. She is highly professional and comes with years of experience in the industry. We can always trust we will see high quality, stunning photographs from Verity. She really knows how to capture the true beauty of Northumberland, being a local lady herself. Our team admire how hands on she is on the day of a Wedding. Verity always takes time to get to know a couple as well as their families. She pops in the day before, while couples are setting up the marquee. We can tell this gives couples peace of mind during the sometimes stressful finishing touches.  Don’t be surprised to see Verity in the most curious of places, she will always find ways to capture the best photograph! If you are looking for a touch of class and tradition, we could not recommend Verity enough. We love a Wedding which includes her work.

Stott + Atkinson Photography

Stott + Atkinson Photography are a duo who travelled from Yorkshire, and photographed Rachel and Dave’s Wedding here at Vallum last Summer. We totally understand why the couple got them to make the journey to Northumberland. Their work was truly amazing and resulted in lots of ‘ahhh’s’ when the photographs were seen in our Wedding office! The guys could not have been a nicer pair to work with on the day of the Wedding. We found them to be professional and easy going. They captured every emotion which came with the day. We found them to be particularly good with the younger guests, making sure the fun they had would be remembered forever! Stott + Atkinson captured the rustic heart of Vallum and made use of the full site. The contrast between the bride’s elegant Wedding dress and the farm was surprisingly clever. The way they creatively used light within their work showed exactly how lively the dance floor was all evening! For a couple who are looking for modern, relaxed Wedding photographs these guys are perfect. You will be able to re-live your Wedding day story in every photo!

Alice Jane

We met Alice Jane during the first intimate Wedding in our Tipi. Alice was genuinely lovely and complemented our relaxed approach here at Vallum. She made the Wedding guests feel at ease during the whole day. Alice had a fuss free, professional style and took her time to make sure every detail was perfect.  She was happy to take our couple into the surrounding corn fields before sunset, to capture the most beautiful, elegant photographs. In the evening, the Wedding party grew and Alice was amazing at capturing the excitement of the Wedding evening. For couples looking to work with a professional, relaxed photographer, Alice is perfect. She will make sure couples feel at ease during their Wedding day and produces the most beautiful work.
