..Just over a year ago, as we ventured into the then unknown galaxy of wedding photo-shoots, we were still finding our feet into the arcane world of wedding suppliers – how should we source the most talented suppliers in the North-East?

Enter: Sian Chaplin.

We were incredibly lucky to be guided through the wedding industry maze by the incredible expertise of a super team, led by Wedding Planner Sian Chaplin ( ). Sian not only lined up for us a fantastic model, Kayleigh Richmond – World Supermodel for England 2016-2017 and accomplished classical ballet performer  but then proceeded in having our very first wedding shoot published by no other than Rock My Wedding blog. If you are looking for inspiration for an ethereal, ballet inspired theme for your wedding day, look no further than this link:
