North East Wedding Photographer

Hello There and welcome to Melissa Kay Photography!

I am a North East Wedding Photographer, living in the lovely seaside town of South Shields.

For weddings I cover the whole of the North East, the UK and the world beyond! 

I think it goes without saying that I love what I do, I feel so fortunate that I get to spend my days, (and quite a few nights too)

capturing my favourite thing,


I’m a romantic at heart, I believe that Love is the most inspiring feeling in the world, and I want to capture your Love and make it visible for all to see.

As a professional photographer for the last 15 years, I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and work with the most amazing array of clients,

all with one thing in common,

Meet Kay

Nice to meet you

I’m Melissa Kay, but you can call me Kay- everyone does, they have done since I was a little’n!

As a professional photographer for the last 15 years, I’ve had the amazing fortune of travelling the world and capturing hundreds of couples in Love and celebrating that Love with their family and friends on the happiest day of their lives!

I Love natural light photography- nothing makes me happier than shooting in that buttery, golden light at the end of the day, or first thing in the morning. and I’m not averse to catching a little sun flare in my lens now and again.

Want to know a little more about me other than which lenses I use? Read on:

After a good few years of travelling, I’ve set down roots in the town where I was born, South Shields. 

I’m a traveller in my heart. I absolutely subscribe to the theory that having stamps in my passport and memories to treasure is so much more enjoyable than having a big house or an expensive car! Are you thinking of having a destination wedding? Give me a call!! 

I love living so close to the beach. The sea is my spiritual home, there’s something about the sound of the waves which is so calming to me and leaves me feeling centred.

I’m a Professional cat cuddler. Mildred Kitten-Chops Chicken-Face Four-Bells is our very self adoring, spoilt little kitten. She’s my sounding board, my colleague, my office mascot. She is by my side all day whilst I’m editing, and I can’t imagine I could cope with doing my admin without her . Don’t judge me- I may be approaching crazy cat lady status, but it gets lonely working in a home office!

I love a good cuppa! Truth is, I need tea to function as an effective human being! On those days where I am office bound I think I probably drink upwards of 7 mugs of tea!

If you fancy joining me for a cuppa and a chat about your wedding, give me a shout and I’ll get the kettle on!
