I wanted to share this collection of images by wedding photographer Barry Forshaw, for the simple reason that I like them. I bumped into Barry on twitter and when I saw his photographs for a series of styled shoots for Tyne and Wear Museums, I thought you’d like them too.

Before talking about the shoot I want to give you a bit of background about the photographer. He started his wedding career as a registrar, so in addition to shooting brides and grooms he’s also married thousands of couples. This is a man that really knows the importance of a wedding so you’re in good hands using him as a photographer.

As you can imagine Barry has seen all the weird and wonderful wedding venues in his native Newcastle upon Tyne and picked the Tyne to Wear Museums to host a series of vintage inspired wedding shoots in the Laing Art Gallery, Great North Museum and the Discovery Museum.

Together with some really talented wedding professionals, Barry Forshaw created a shoot that will hopefully give you some inspiration to help with your own wedding planning and styling.
