Lisa and David were due to get married at the beautiful Shotton Grange on 29th March 2021, but have postponed their wedding to 30th May 2022. They met on Tinder in 2013 and got engaged on Christmas Day 2019 with a beautiful diamond ring under the tree! Read all about their lovely Newcastle engagement shoots and plans for their big day.

Why did you decide to have a pre-wedding shoot? 

To make David feel more comfortable in front of the camera and because Lisa loves to pose!

How did you meet and how long have you been together? 

We swiped right towards the end of 2013.

Tell us all about the proposal...

It was Christmas Day 2019, Lisa’s present underneath the Christmas tree was a beautiful Diamond and Garnett white gold engagement ring. 

Why did you choose the shoot location? 

The area has a mix of landscapes from wandering brooks to the River Tyne and a range of architectural design. 

Did you find the shoot helpful for helping you feel more prepared for the wedding day? 

The shoot was fantastic! At first, it was a little strange being photographed in a public place but we both soon fell into the wistfulness of it. Laura and Nick (the photographers) are extremely professional and very friendly; we laughed so much (well Lisa and Laura did) and got to know them so much better. We cannot wait for them to shoot our wedding day. 

Did you feel nervous behind the camera? 

David did. Lisa felt apprehensive about being photographed in public but was soon put at ease.

Would you recommend that other couples have an engagement shoot or do you feel it is not necessary? 

Absolutely!! They are a fantastic opportunity to create a bond with your photographer.

Did your photographer give you any tips before the shoot? 

To relax, enjoy ourselves and let them take care of creating and getting the perfect shots. 

What is your favourite photo from the shoot? 

There are too many to mention just one. I do particularly like the one with the bridges lined up behind us; Nick did a superb job of lining it up just right as well as the one of David leaning against the railing of the stream with Lisa holding his lapels and turning her head to look at the camera. 

Were there any stand out moments in the shoot? 

All of it, I didn’t want it to end and remember thinking at the end ‘aw, is that it?’

Tell us about your wedding plans... 

Our wedding is taking place in the gorgeous Shotton Grange, an elegant Georgian Manor and Coaching House transformed into the North East’s newest exclusive wedding and events venue. It is nestled within 6 acres of country grounds and exquisite walled gardens, located in Northumberland but only 5 miles north of Newcastle. 

Our colour scheme is yellow and should our wedding be able to proceed in March I plan for myself and bridesmaids to carry daffodils. I also have two bridesmen who will be matching my bridesmaids with lemon ties. 

Do you plan to incorporate any of the photos into your wedding? 

Absolutely, printed copies on display in and around the venue, particularly in the areas which will be utilised for our drinks reception. 

What are you most looking forward to about the wedding date? 

The reaction of all our guests to how the day has come together as well as the all important part of the day where we become Mr & Mrs. 

What has been your favourite part of wedding planning so far? 

All of it, it is impossible to separate any aspects.
