The Secret Tower Wedding
Ayo and Leila held their wedding at
The Secret Tower in Newcastle in April.
The Secret Tower is a relatively
new wedding venue addition in Newcastle is
at the location
of the Grade I-listed Sallyport Tower,
which dates back to the 1200s and
once formed part of the main defensive
fortifications of the city walls.
Early in the day, Leila and some of her
bridesmaids got ready at the Hilton
Hotel across the River Tyne in Gateshead,
where her father came to collect her to
take her to the ceremony.
Ayo, his best man Tony and the other
groomsmen waited patiently, chatting amongst
themselves and with the arriving guests.
Ayo and Leila now live in London,
but Newcastle remains an important
factor in their union as it was where they met.
The wedding was a joy to be a part of
with a fabulous cultural mix of people
from Nigeria, Belgium, UK, Kyrgyzstan
and many more.
There were plenty of tears, smiles and
laughter which continued well into the evening.
We were honoured to be asked to photograph
the big day of two beautiful people both inside
Most photographers have the same aim
as myself, which is to delight their clients
and it should go without saying that
they would want to produce images that
are personal, stylish and emotive.
I love seeing people’s reactions when they
view their photographs for the first time,
but it is just as important to ensure
that it will become a joyous feeling
for years to come.
Every wedding is special and every one
I shoot is an honour to be a part of.
