Northside Farm Wedding - A Weekend of Fun

Northside Farm is located in Horsley, Newcastle upon Tyne and is run by Olivia and Ralph. We got to share the first Wedding at this fabulous new venue - their Wedding!

Olivia asked Red Lime to be the videographer's for her own Wedding after meeting us filming at a wedding the previous year. When we first met, the venue; Northside Farm, was only really a Glamping site, but provided Weddings via a marquee in the field. Little did we know at the time that Olivia and Ralph had plans to turn the location into one of the most amazing Wedding venues in the area.

I went to meet Olivia and Ralph a few months before the Wedding to discuss the timings and finer details of their big day and to get a first look at how things had changed.

Olivias' wedding was to be the first the venue had held in the new building and as such she had asked the photographer (David West) and Red Lime, if we could not only photograph/film the wedding, but also produce some Commercial Video/Photography to enable them to promote Northside Farm Events.. A really clever idea and one that would keep us busier than usual on at a Wedding. Given this extra amount of video to be filmed we decided to stay for the whole weekend.

Arriving Friday evening, we settled in and took a look around the exterior of the new building, and even in the failing light it looked amazing, but our work was to start very early Saturday morning, when we got to head inside and check out the fully finished interior with all its decor.


Olivia had considered so many 'little' things that I never would have thought to include; an entertainer/magician for the children, a fire pit in the evening with huge marshmallows to toast and the evening finished with spectacular Fireworks display.

After capturing lots of great footage of the interior with no-one else but the David around, we next headed to visit Olivia as she got ready for the day ahead.

I perhaps forgot to mention that Olivia and Ralph wanted a Traditional Wedding video... and a Marryoke as well as a video to promote the business!, We don't normally shoot a traditional video and a Marryoke at the same event due to timings, but since we have an extra day and did not have to travel back home after the Wedding, we had plenty of time to make it work.

We retired to bed close to midnight. It had been a long day and we still had work to do the following day. Sunday started with a lovely breakfast for the guests who stayed over and afterwards we picked up the cameras ready to do the final filming. We needed a few more shots for the Marryoke and some final scenes for the Commercial Video before we were done.

If you are looking for a Wedding Venue in the North East, Northside Farm is well worth investigating. There is something that I personally love about a venue that is separated from the general public that makes it just so appealing - relaxing and intimate. Olivia and Ralphs' attention to detail in out of this World, their choice of suppliers for catering, table decoration etc is perfectly attuned to the venue, and of course you can stay in their wooden wigwams too.
