Sam & Craig's Botanical Wedding at Sefton Palm House, Liverpool

2017-10-02_0015.jpg

Sam & Craig were an absolute dream to photograph on their Liverpool pre-shoot a few weeks back, so I was excited to get them in front of the camera again for their Sefton Palm House wedding!

Their wedding was one of those days that had it all. Not just one but three mouth-watering cakes, 99 red balloons, confetti so colourful it dyed Sam's dress & a sparkler exit shot to top it all off. It was a jam packed day leaving little time to stop for breath, but wow was it worth it!

Sefton Palm House in Liverpool has been on my venue bucket list for ages now and I wasn't left disappointed. It has such an unique set up; with it's huge green-house style structure filled with plants of all shapes, colours & sizes. The light in there is beautiful and it felt so bright and airy even despite the rain!

Sam & Craig, thank-you so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I had such an amazing time and I hope you love your preview <3

 

Georgie & Eddy's Urban Wedding at Constellations in Liverpool

2017-09-06_0020.jpg

What a day... Five locations in seven hours left little time to stop for breath, but I wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

Constellations is probably up there as one of the coolest venues I’ve shot at. You can find it right in the heart of Liverpool's Baltic Triangle, surrounded by urban streets & graffitied walls. I loved how different it was from the usual picturesque green landscapes I’m used to shooting… However we still couldn't resist making a quick stop in the woodlands on our way into Liverpool, (would be rude not too, right?)

Georgie & Eddy, you were a pleasure to work with & I’m sure you’ll agree, you absolutely nailed your couple shots! Hope you’re enjoying life as Mr & Mrs & I can’t wait to share your full gallery with you xx

Also, would you just look at Georgie's dress <3

 

Laura & Alan's Cotswolds elopement at The Lost Orangery, Colerne

2017-08-31_0053.jpg

When Laura & Alan called a few months ago, I was so happy I still had their date free. I wouldn't usually be tempted to travel so far for a shorter day however I couldn't resist after looking up The Lost Orangery online and seeing how incredible it was. And the icing on the cake... there were only 14 guests attending, it sounded absolutely perfect & definitely didn't disappoint.

I was only with Laura & Alan for four hours but it was certainly short but sweet! The weather took a turn for the better after an awful forecast and the sun even came out in time for their ceremony under the thatch-roofed boat house. After their intimate service was over & the pair were declared Husband & Wife, we set off round the grounds to make use of the picturesque setting.

It's hard to remember you're still in Britain when walking round The Lost Orangery. It has all the charm & character of a Italian Palazzo or a French Chateau and really is a photographers paradise. After wandering the grounds for a while shooting Laura & Alan's portraits, we headed back down to the lake to suss out if the little boat was sturdy enough for a bride & groom!

Laura & Alan, you're definitely up there as one of my bravest couples after getting into that little boat, I hope it was worth the nerves! Hope you have an amazing party up north with your friends and family <3

 

Delia & Sean's Fun filled Willington Hall Wedding in Cheshire

2017-08-29_0057.jpg

I can't express how much fun Delia & Sean's big day was.

Firstly, a huge shout out to Delia, who climbed over a wooden fence in her dress & heels to get into the fields surrounding the hall for their photographs. Never an easy task but you did it in style & it was totally worth it!

Secondly, Delia & Sean had completely decked out the lawn with hoola hoops, space hoppers, limbo, hay bales & a seriously cool VW Camper photobooth! Oh and jester hats all round.. just because. And to top it all off, as everyone was having such a good time outside, Delia & Sean decided to do their first dance out there too, surrounded by their loved ones all singing along to Oasis, it was such a perfect moment.

I hope wedding number 2 is as perfect as this one, have an amazing time in Romania guys.. I can't wait to hear about it when you're back <3

 

Danni & Pasq's Lavender wedding at prestwold hall, loughborough

2017-08-26_0028.jpg

Being asked to photograph another photographer's wedding day is such a flattering thing however it's a teeny bit scary too! So Danni, a huge thanks for putting your trust in me :)

Prestwold Hall looked absolutely gorgeous, surrounded by countryside & the sun shining for the first time in ages! The day was topped of with a special appearance from the CUTEST fluff ball, Enzo (who took bribes of salami in return for posing) & of course, a raffle - as in the words of Danni's stepdad, no good event is complete without one!

Danni & Pasq, thanks again for asking me to be a part of your beautiful day. Hope you're having an amazing time in Ibiza <3
 

 

Lauren & Niall's Sheldrakes Wedding on the Waterfront

2017-08-22_0018.jpg

Lauren & Niall only booked me a few months ago & I was so pleased when I still had their date free. They filled me in on their plans of having the ceremony at the gorgeous Ness Gardens and then heading over to Sheldrakes Restaurant for their reception on the waterfront - both venues I’d shot at before & couldn’t wait to get back to.

Sheldrakes is one of those lucky few venues that has a seriously cool photo-worthy location right on it’s doorstep. It’s situated right on the estuary and is lined with moored boats, making a unique spot for portraits. Lauren looked uhh-mazing in her dress, which had a removable skirt to transform it into a fish-tale number for the evening do & Niall, of course, scrubbed up pretty well too! They absolutely rocked their portrait shoot, surrounded by boats, sun going down & huge grins across their faces. What more can a photographer as for!

Thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of your day & thank you again for the beautiful flowers. Have an amazing honeymoon guys, hope you’ve got your feet up with a cocktail in hand <3

 

Phil & Nicola's Outdoor Wedding at Nunsmere Hall, Cheshire



I'd been dying to shoot a wedding at Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire and was over the moon when Nicola & Phil booked me for their day there!

We've had such a rainy few weeks and I had all my fingers crossed that the sun would make an appearance for Phil & Nic as they had their hearts set on an outdoor wedding ceremony. I turned up at Nunsmere nice and early to have a scout round for locations before I met Nicola and the bridesmaids getting ready, the sun was out and there were blue skies all round, an absolute miracle!

After Nicola was wedding-ready & in her dress, I headed outside to photograph the ceremony area before the guests were seated. Just as I got outside, a huge black cloud blew over and it started chucking it down! I quickly dumped my camera inside and ran out to help the staff gather up the chair covers & roll up the carpet so it didn't get ruined. As quickly as the rain started, it stopped & the sun & blue skies were back once again! We all stood there in disbelief not knowing whether to carry on moving everything inside or start putting it back out. The wedding co-ordinator called Nic and she bravely said they'd go ahead with the outdoor ceremony. With 5 minutes to go we all raced around setting up again and making it perfect for the Bride & Groom.

Nicola definitely made the right call. The sun carried on shining and there wasn't a drop of rain in sight!

 

Chris & Pippa's Rustic Country Wedding at The Plough Inn, Eaton


Pippa & Chris got married in the beautiful St Catherine's Church in Macclesfield, just a short walk away from Pippa's parents house where the girls had been busy getting ready all morning! So, when everyone was all dolled up and good-to-go, they walked through the fields surrounding the house, to an eagerly awaiting Groom-to-be.

After an emotional service in the quaint little church, it was time for Pippa & Chris to make a confetti showered exit and head back up through the fields for some photographs & a champagne toast, before joining their guests at The Plough Inn, Eaton!

The Plough Inn is a lovely little country pub in Eaton, complete with the most amazing barn filled with wooden beams. It made the perfect place to continue on with the celebrations. The barn had been decorated with vases of flowers hand picked from Pippa's mum and dads garden, paper cranes to mark each guests place & a rustic cake that made your tummy rumble just looking at it!

 

Chrissie & Dave's Tipi Wedding in Sunny Yorkshire

Innisfree Tipi Wedding, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer


When I was told about about Chrissie's parents' plans to convert their house into a wedding venue for Chrissie and Dave to get married in the garden, I couldn't wait for the day to come and see all their hard work pay off.

I arrived at Innisfree to high spirits, perfect blue skies & dogs everywhere (heaven!) As the guests started arriving it was time to leave Chrissie with the registrars and head outside to see Dave. Chrissie looked incredible as she walked through her parents garden and down the the aisle, arm in arm with her Dad. After the ceremony came to an end it was time for everyone to kick off their shoes & enjoy the sunshine with a glass of Pimms!

It was so so sunny that we decided to wait till after the wedding breakfast to shoot the newly wed's portraits, leaving them with bags of time to relax with their guests and make the most of the beautiful weather. There was such a relaxed & homely atmosphere to the day, it was an absolute dream to photograph!

I'd had my fingers crossed all day that the sun would stay out late enough to give us a gorgeous golden light & it didn't disappoint. After Chrissie & Dave shared their first dance as Man & Wife, we headed out to the garden once more, leaving their guests partying away. It only took a few minutes to make the most of the dreamy light so the couple were back on the dance floor before anyone noticed they were gone!

A big thanks to my second shooter, Helen <3
