The Golf Club at Newcastle according to Seattle Bride Magazine, is the place that is the “Best Sunset Wedding Spot” in the Seattle area, and Tim and Michele Sheehan were married there. It was a perfect Seattle summer day in the first week in July and the sunset was indeed stunning. This panoramic large group wedding portrait, taken shortly after they made their vows in the wedding tent pavilion at Newcastle Golf Club, shows everyone in attendance at their ceremony,  and the hills in back going eastwards toward the Cascades. Here is a link The Golf Club at Newcastle Wedding to see the stunning sunset picture and the rest of the photos from their wedding that I have highlighted previously on this blog.

Here is the large group wedding panorama portrait of everyone at Erin and Clives wedding. I almost hate to post them on the blog because they look so small compared to the original print I give client which measure 12″ x 36″ . At that size you can clearly see all the detail of everyone in the photo. Something gets lost seeing it at this size and resolution. All photographs on this website are by Daniel Sheehan © 2010.

Seattle Golf Club Wedding

February 22nd, 2010

Erin and Clive were married at the Florence Henry Memorial Chapel in The Highlands, and had their reception at the nearby Seattle Golf Club. It was a beautiful June wedding at Seattle Golf Club with all the grounds looking spotless and flowers blooming everywhere. After the ceremony at the Chapel everyone walked over to the Golf Club for the reception.

We made some family portraits outside the Chapel and wedding party photos at the beginning of the Golf Course. The light was fantastic and warm, just before sunset. Kirstie Warren of Simply Wed was the wedding planner and coordinator and everything went so smoothly. It was a joy working together with her again

The Florence Henry Memorial Chapel is an historic place with a rich heritage, wonderful works of art, and a building set in the natural beauty of its wooded surroundings. W. Marberry Somervell designed it and next year it will celebrate its 100th year. The Chapel has a marble bas-relief of the Last Supper that was carved for the Italian exhibit of the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. The bas-relief can be seen in the pictures of Clive and Erin at the altar. Horace and Susan Henry, donors of the Chapel, purchased the carving when the Exhibition closed and had it installed over the altar in a specially carved wood.

Outside the grounds are graced with other works of art. It is a great place for a wedding when not a large number of guest are in attendance. The room for the brides party to prepare for the wedding is splendid and was redecorated a few years ago. Nisha Kelen of Fleurish did all of the flowers from the decorations inside and outside the Chapel to the bouquets for Erin and bridesmaids to the boutonnieres for Clive and his groomsmen they looked wonderful. Above is Erin with her bouquet. Below she is with her bridsmaids.

Above exchanging vows in the Chapel, note the bas-relief behind them above the altar.




At the end of the evening, Erin and Clive made their getaway in a vintage Caddlic limo from the early 1950’s.  Below is a gallery with a complete selection of highlights from their Seattle Golf Club Wedding.

Wedding Venue with a View

April 24th, 2009


I was at a corporate reception at the Newcastle Golf Club recently. the weather was a rare gorgeous spring day so I took the opportunity made this panorama of the view. At right someone was making his own photograph of the fantastic view of the western horizon over Lake Washington, the city of Seattle and across Puget Sound to the Olympic Mountains. Simply one of the beast drop dead views available in the region in the opinion of many Seattle photographers. Besides being a fantastic place to play golf, the catering staff make Newcastle a great place to hold a function whether its a corporate function or a wedding. I have photographed both types of functions and enjoyed working there as a Seattle wedding photographer.
