Photographers specialising in wedding photography have an eye for finding the perfect places at each of the venues.

In the North East of England, you can find scenic countryside vistas and beautiful coastal views throughout the entire area. Communities like Darlington, Northumberland, Sedgefield Hartlepool, and Teesside have character and an atmosphere that make them stand out. A good North East wedding photographer enjoys learning about the different areas and the scenic locations that are popular in each one.

Get to Know Simon Hogben Photography

Hello! My name is Simon Hogben, and I am a professional wedding photographer from the North Yorkshire area. I know how important photographs are when capturing the atmosphere and emotions of your big day. I try to put my bride and groom at ease so all their wedding photos will look as natural as possible. I like to mix in a few portrait shots as well. They are a great way to create generational photos for the family.

Once I get to know my couple, it is much easier to learn what types of photos they will most enjoy. A woodland area or beautiful walled gardens are the perfect backdrops for couples who like outdoor shots. Some couples prefer the stunning architecture of a castle or winding oak staircase for their wedding portraits. I’m not a perfect photographer, but I do my best to make sure each wedding photo I take perfectly captures the special moments of your big day.
