Florists and Co presenters

www.sarahloveland.com A super talented Hexham based studio photographer, dog lover and nature enthusiast Sarah Loveland has been capturing images for over 15 years and does 1-2-1 photography courses and that how I met her, she taught me how to use the camera on my smart phone. Sarah captures my flowers in just a breathtaking way and when I look at her images I can’t quite believe that I actually grew them! Some of Sarah’s images are evident on this site.
www.unfurlphotography.co.uk owned by a truly special photographer Gill Haves, owned by a French pointer called Smutley who’s story was that his mother was won and lost in a French bet while she was expecting a litter of puppies. Gill specialises in wedding photography and photoshoots, adores the Northumbrian countryside – the more rural and wild the better, some of Gill’s images are evident on this site.
www.barrasfordarms.co.uk a country pub with rooms, just 10 minutes away on the other side of the river, great food served in 3 different dining rooms and traditional snug bar with roaring log fire with great service and super rooms.
Restaurants & Event Venues
www.blackfriarsrestaurant.co.uk The most special and amazing restaurant, ancient Banqueting Hall and Parlour bar in the oldest part of Newcastle city, it is the most perfect rustic and atmospheric wedding and event venue in my opinion. Great food, great staff, home to my Newcastle city centre base for my Christmas Door Wreath workshops, I also present 2 Ladies Lunch Club demos in particular the December event is always a sell out! Their Christmas trees are rather good too!
www.dobsonandparnell.co.uk situated in a stunning building in the old quarter of Newcastle quayside this is such an amazing restaurant, headed up by the super talented chef Troy Terrington – eating here is pure pleasure.
