This Bamburgh Castle wedding makes us want to run across the beach whilst wearing a wedding gown, the wind in our air, slow motion (obviously), a man at the other end… anyway. Melissa & Matt are just glowing on their big day! We absolutely love the vibes, from the castle backdrop, to their doggy wedding guest (we know, we know, we’re just a sucker for it…) Oh, and how incredible is Melissa’s bouquet!? We love those muted Autumnal tones and white ribbon, which both work perfectly alongside her bridal look. All captured beautifully by Recommended Supplier, Benni Carol Photography.

We worked with Karen from Bamburgh castle to help source the flowers for the bouquet and button hole - she was absolutely brilliant and so helpful!

After a crazy year for everyone we just wanted chill! It was just the family and our dog by the beach - there were no strict timings to adhere too and we were just able to go with the flow all day.


Don’t stress over the little details - it's more about who is there which makes it special - as this year as shown, things never go according to plan anyway so it's not worth over planning or worrying about in the first place.


Bamburgh beach is one of the most stunning in the UK, especially with the castle as a backdrop. Although it was not the original wedding we had planned, the location and intimacy of just having immediate family with us made it very special.

Melissa & Matt are the perfect example of incredible a first-look moment can be. And a beach backdrop? You really can’t go wrong…

The photos are so stunning. They really capture the atmosphere of the day and location perfectly. Benni Carol Photography were so fun and helpful to work with throughout everything that happened over the year! Highly recommend to anyone.
