Photo shoot with Claire Collinson Photography

Wedding Photographer North East

unique fine gemstone Jewellery ethical sustainable recycled gold fairtrade Emma hedley Jewellery Claire Collinson Photography model Hannah Shaw

If you are looking for a North East wedding photographer I'd highly recommend Claire Collinson Photography!

We've had lots of shoots over the years as I just love the way she captures the essence of a moment. Claire and I met when I had my first little shop space in Barnard Castle I think in around 2010, when I had a pop up space with my handmade personalised silver Jewellery. It was in the back of My Generation, filled with an eclectic mix of vintage and handmade treasures by the lovely Suzanne Thomas.

You will find Claire's stunning photography scattered throughout the website! 

Our most recent photoshoot was on the beach and in the sand Dunes at South Shields. A wild and windy day, brought a variety of challenges that we laughed our way through and just had a great time! Despite the joys of our British weather Claire managed to capture some great shots, so I'm truly grateful!

Makeup Artist

Here is our beautiful Model Hannah Shaw, who has previously modelled for Barbour, was actually 20 weeks pregnant on the shoot, she was such a natural and an absolute pleasure to work with! Her lovely natural makeup was created by Jo Leversuch 

Jo is a renowned International Make-up artist based in North East of England and is regarded as the 'Queen of Skin' and has a eye for creating fresh, dewy, natural make-up. Not only does she do high end fashion makeup for editorial shoots, she also does beautiful Wedding makeup!

Made with unique ethically sourced gemstone clusters set in 18ct recycled Rose gold pink and green sapphires and tourmalines mixed with lab grown or natural diamonds for extra sparkle.
