A special engagement party at the Baltic.

Housed in a landmark industrial building on the south bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, BALTIC is a major international centre for contemporary art.  The venue is also a place to party and this is where John and Cheryl chose to celebrate their engagement with their friends and family.  The weather was lovely and the event started off with a champagne reception on Level One of this grand building with everyone enjoying lovely views of the Tyne.
