Karly & Chris chose to tie the knot at the iconic Liver Building in Liverpool! It was my first time shooting there and I was super excited to photograph a wedding in the infamous building. The space was decorated beautifully, with pale blue & peach flowers, giant balloons & a flower arch. I didn’t expect the venue to be so light and airy but with floor to ceiling windows, the light was beautiful!
An emotional Chris waited for Karly to walk down the aisle, arm in arm with her mum. After the pair met at the end of the aisle, they made it official in a room full of smiling faces! I absolutely love that Karly’s bridal party was made up of both Bridesmaids & Bridesmen. It’s such an old tradition for the girls to stick with the girls & guys to stick with the guys so it was great to see Karly mixing it up & just having her nearest & dearest accompany her down the aisle!
Karly & Chris, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your special day. You were an absolutely pleasure photograph & I hope you love them as much as I do! <3
The Outbuildings is a quirky little wedding venue in Anglesey, North Wales. Surrounded by Welsh fields filled with fluffy white sheep & even has it’s very own pink farm house, making the perfect backdrop for some colourful wedding photography.
I had the pleasure of meeting Rachel & Kristian for their pre-wedding beach shoot earlier in the year. They are both such lovely people & were so happy telling me all about their plans for the big day, I came away so excited for the day to come around!
After the pair tied the knot in front of a beautiful floral arch, it was outside to enjoy pour-your-own pints and ice-cream cones! Next up was an appearance from The Diamond Boys. Now I don’t often do supplier shout out’s unless I see something absolutely incredible… & The Diamond Boys were just that! By far one of the best bands I’ve ever met & you can see for yourself how much the guests loved them! By the end of their set they had every single guest joining in, circled around them singing their hearts out.
It was such an wonderful day & the cherry on the top was the most epic golden hour just as I was saying my goodbyes. We’d waited and waited all evening for the sun & clouds to aline to give us some beautiful light & they did, just in the nick of time!
Rachel & Kristian, thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I hope you love your photos of much as I do <3
Marie & Paul planned the perfect garden party wedding at Mere Brook House on the Wirral. This was my first time at Mere Brook and I arrived to see a beautiful old manor house, giant pink tassel balloons, lawn games, alpaca’s & SUNSHINE... So I knew it was going to be a good day right from the off!
Marie was busy getting her make-up done upstairs by her super talented mum. Once she was in her dress & wedding ready it was off to the church to an eagerly awaiting Paul. After a beautiful ceremony & a showering of confetti it was back to Mere Brook House to continue the celebrations!
Now I love a bride with a red lip & I love it even more when they spend the whole day grinning like Marie did. And the best part? Marie’s chosen shade of Chanel lipstick was actually called ‘Marie’. It was obviously meant to be!
Marie & Paul, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I hope you’ve had an amazing honeymoon & that you love your photos! Can’t wait to share the rest with you <3
I’d been so excited in the run up to Emma & Scott’s big day. Firstly, because I couldn’t wait to get back to the beautiful Tyn Dwr Hall & secondly, because Emma & Scott are AWESOME and I couldn’t wait to see them both tie the knot!
As Emma walked down the aisle looking a million dollars, Scott was completely overcome with emotion. He did the best groom-cry I’ve seen in ages & made my job very difficult shooting through blurry eyes!
Emma & Scott, thank-you so much for asking me to be a part of your special day. You guys were just as fun & laid back as I knew you would be and it really was a pleasure to be involved. Hope you had an amazing honeymoon & hopefully this gallery will ease some of the holiday blues <3
P.S. A massive thanks to Ayesha for being a fabulous 2nd Shooter!
Keyvan & Sam got ready together in The Boathouse in Pooley Bridge - a beautiful little building with its own jetty & balcony overlooking the lake. It couldn’t have been a more stunning location & the perfect way to start off their wedding day. After the pair were suited and booted we headed out on the jetty for some pre-ceremony portraits and to make the most of the idyllic Lake District setting.
We then set off into the village where the tipis had been set up, tucked away in a little field right next to the river. Keyvan & Sam said their I do’s under a tipi surrounded by their friends and family. They chose to do the speeches through the ceremony which worked perfectly and meant more time later on for eating, drinking & dancing!
The pair planned their wedding day by prioritising what was important to them and ditching the traditions that weren’t. They had a DIY help-yourself bar & the best dim sum street food for their wedding breakfast (seriously, the best.) They didn’t want to do a first dance but the DJ kicked off at 5pm and the dancefloor was jam packed all evening! It was the perfect day & it was exactly what they wanted.
Sam & Keyvan, thanks so much for asking me to be your photographer! I hope you’re having an amazing honeymoon & enjoy looking through these photos whilst you’re away <3
2018, WHAT A YEAR!
37 weddings // 8 engagement shoots // 16,951 delivered images
Every year that passes by, I worry how long I’ll love this job for & whether I’ll eventually start to tire from the craziness that wedding season brings.
But each & every year I love it more and more.
I get more of a buzz from traveling up and down the country more times than I can keep track of. I feel more every time I witness two people making the biggest declarations of their lives. I cry more, a lot more.. I try to fight back the happy tears but there’s always something that gets me at each and every wedding.
I shot my 150th wedding this year & I can remember each & every one of them.
I can sit here and think about what I’d do instead of this job but I can’t imagine myself ever giving all of this up.
THIS YEAR HAS BEEN CRAZY GOOD!
Thank-you to each & every one of my beautiful clients, who have made it my best year yet!
Kirsty & Andrew chose to have their beautiful, beautiful day at Stubton Hall in Newark, Nottinghamshire. After a week or so of colder weather, the sun was out again in full force for their special day & the hall looked all the more grand against a backdrop of blue sky.
Kirsty & Andrew, thanks so so much for asking me to be a part of your day, I had SO much fun with you both.. really hope you love your preview & can't wait to show you the rest too! <3
And last but not least, huge thank-you to my amazing 2nd shooter, Olivia x
Right from the off, Emily & Marcus's day sounded perfect. They wanted a super relaxed day filled with colour that combined both British & Nigerian traditions. Plus they'd booked the absolutely beautiful barn wedding venue, Gaynes Park for their reception. Amazing!
I started the day over at Emily's parents house, where her and EIGHT bridesmaids were getting ready. There was a great buzz around the house as everyone pitched in helping each other prepare & a one or two tear-jerking moments with thanks to Emily's Dad! Once everyone was dolled up in their wedding gear, it was off to the church in the most appropriate London wedding cars ever.
After a touching ceremony the pair were declared husband and wife and exited the church being showered with confetti & congratulations from their nearest and dearest. Next stop was Gaynes Park in Epping, a beautiful barn venue surrounded by corn fields. After all the food had been eaten & the new couple had been toasted, it was time for a knees-up, Nigerian style. Emily & Marcus were led into their evening reception by African drummers & guests took delight in showering the pair with dollar bills.
Emily & Marcus, hope you had an amazing time in Croatia! Can't wait to show you your full set of photographs, there's A LOT more to come! xx
P.S. - a huge thanks to my 2nd shooter, Helen!
