As You Like It – A Wedding With A Twist
From Gavin’s perspective, it’s great to get the chance to shoot in a urban environment with cool backgrounds.
As You Like It is set over extensive floors, featuring 4 stunning bars with an elegant garden terrace. It is regarded as Jesmond’s most beautiful restaurant.
Dave and Louise had a cool, quirky, one of a kind wedding ceremony and reception at As You Like It’s romantic getaway – Frangipani. A perfect location for a beautiful wedding with a twist. Frangipani was designed by Newcastle’s most gifted young designers, which can easily be noted by the dreamy ambience and unique pieces throughout the venue.
The wedding preparations were set not too far from the wedding location. Louise prepped for her big day at Kensington Apartment Jesmond, and Dave got ready at the Caledonian Hotel, Jesmond.
Louise was dressed in a modern Diva Designs bridal gown that was perfectly suited to the urban and cool theme of the wedding, with a beautiful bouquet by Made by Bride Florist to match.
The wedding ceremony and evening reception venue were just a flight of stairs away, which meant no travel between locations.
Umbrellas Can Be A Beautiful Thing
For Gavin, there is always something that makes a wedding stand out, and this certainly had many memorable elements. Dave and Louise had a dedicated team of wedding planners to make sure that their version came to light. Their own secret garden, a 4-piece live band and even a juke box! The evening included twinkling fairy lights, beautiful blossom trees and the beautiful couple’s nearest and dearest.
The wedding was filled with intimate and personal touches, including the craziest, and most elaborate table plan ever made. And a ‘first anniversary piñata”!
Although, it was one of those days where the weather did not play ball. Gavin captured some special moments between the couple in the rain – umbrellas can be a beautiful thing!
Gavin was able to shoot some stunning photographs in a cool, urban back drop.
If you are interested in your own cool, quirky, one of kind wedding, As You Like It might be the place for you.
