The Wedding of Hayley and Tobias at the Vermont Hotel in Newcastle
by North East, Northumberland based wedding photographer ChrisChevPhotographer
A summary of a wonderful wedding
What a pleasure to meet with Hayley and Tobias again. We’d enjoyed a delightful engagement photo shoot in Jesmond Dene a few months ago and at last their big day had arrived. A year ago Tobias moved from his native Germany to live with Hayley here in the UK, where they had decided to be wed. Many of the bride’s and the groom’s close family and friends were meeting for the first time. The excellent English spoken by the German attendees made things easier for us all!
The day began bright and early when I met with Tobias’ mum and sister at 6:30 sharp, to take photos of them getting ready. I then had a session with the Bride and her Bridesmaids and managed to meet with Tobias and friends in the reception as he was putting the last touches to his attire whilst gathering his thoughts and emotions; followed by some time alone in the Vermont Hotel Ballroom – transformed into an impressive wedding hall with a retro Art Deco touch. Everyone was calm with an underlying buzz of excitement…….

Hayley’s father appeared and saw his daughter for the first time that day – quite a moment……… Soon the wedding ceremony was underway – intimate and full of emotion……… followed by, after-wedding drinks, a stroll with the newly weds to capture some contemporary style wedding photos of the two of them (thank you to the very patient and good humoured bus driver), a confetti shower, more refreshments, and a quick hop up to the Vermont Hotel’s Sky Lounge just before the Wedding Breakfast and speeches… everything went smoothly . Traditionally there were speeches from Hayley’s very proud father and and her new husband but Hayley surprised and delighted everyone when she stood up to deliver the closing speech in German; such a touching moment.
The rain held off and allowed the Wedding Party to enjoy the Vermont Hotel’s Sky Lounge where we took a series of formal but very relaxed group photos along with some portraits of Hayley.

The day flew by and before we knew it the evening guests joined the Wedding Party in the Ballroom. Hayley and Tobias cut the impressive cake (made by his mother) to a round of cheers. They then treated us to their first dance. Still full of energy, they agreed to return to the Sky Lounge for a few more photos in the soft evening light.
