How we both met

At Balloon Bar while studying at University. 

The Wedding Venue

Our wedding venue was Wylam Brewery in Newcastle.

Why we chose to have a celebrant wedding ceremony

We wanted a truly personal ceremony and a Celebrant (particularly Jo) seemed like the best way to do it!

Ideas about what our ceremony could have looked like

Not initially but a zoom with Jo gave us a good outline of what we could expect on the day!  We do not live in the North East so Jo kept in contact with us via zoom. 

The best part of the ceremony for us

Getting friends and family to stand up and say a few words. It felt inclusive and made it even more personal.

The ‘Handfasting’ was totally personal and fabulous too!

What our guests said about our wedding ceremony/day

How personal it was. At least half the guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

Some of our fav wedding suppliers and why we chose them

  • Jacquelines Cake Company, she provided our stunning cake with Cat toppers and also did some personalised biscuits for place names which were delicious! We tried some tasters from her and loved the flavours and her vibe.

Other suppliers were the incredible:

  • Dan McCourt
  • Carly Michelle Makeup and Hair
  • Hair by Diinsta
  • Sassi Holford
  • MacGregor and MacDuff


Three words that sum up our ‘Love Jo’ experience!

Magical, Personal & Unforgettable!
