Sinead + Craig

Sinead and Craig’s day was an absolute pleasure to be a part of. The week prior had seen a barrage of bad weather which left everyone fearing the worst. What rain we had was well timed, just as we were indoors for the speeches. The rest of the day was glorious sunshine. Healing Manor looked magnificent, as did the guests. Non more so the stunning couple.

Many people will remember the day for the amazing fireworks just as night fell. For me though it’s the look between Craig and Sinead during their couple’s portrait session. I’d struggle to find a pair who were as remarkably laid back as these guys. The love and smiles is there for all to see.

With no more than 14 people in attendance, this was certainly the most intimate wedding of 2019 for me. It must be said however, that it took nothing away from what was a beautiful day. Jacquie and Carter chose to say their ‘I Do’s’ in the opulent surroundings of Winteringham Fields in North Lincolnshire.

It was a day of great emotion, with barely a dry eye in the building and for me, was summed up perfectly by the wonderfully personal vows that Jacquie and Carter had written for one another. A truly special day to be a part of.

Posing Peacocks, scratch cards for all, a hell of a speech from the groom and a couple very much in love. Just some memories which spring to mind from this truly special day.

Elsham Hall has always been a favourite of mine. The grounds provide a beautiful backdrop no matter what time of year and what ever the weather. Kirsty and Matt’s wonderful day may have been about as overcast as they come, but it did nothing to dampen the spirits of the couple and their guests.

Having only photographed their pre-wedding shoot a few months prior in the Peak District, I knew exactly what to expect from Kirsty and Matt. They’re such a warm hearted, laid back couple who wanted nothing more than to enjoy a day with their closest friends and family.

Here is just a few favourites from their day.

This wedding had everything! A traditional yet beautiful church ceremony, a farm yard reception and a day full of wonderful vibes.

Jessica looked absolutely stunning in her Caroline Castigliano dress, probably the nicest I’ve photographed this year. With exquisite food and absolutely stunning flowers, this day was full of beautiful details.

It feels like an eternity ago that I met up with Lisa and Mark and discussed their vision for a beautiful summer wedding in the heart of Lincolnshire. Listening to their enthusiasm and the meticulous plans, it was impossible not to look forward to it and I’m glad to say, it certainly didn’t disappoint

The ceremony was in the most beautiful little chapel (St. Benedict’s), tucked away in the fields just outside Horncastle and the reception, just a stones throw away at Scrivelsby Walled Garden . So close in fact, all the guests walked across the long grassy fields from the church. A fantastic touch and something quite unique.

Once inside the garden, the couple were blessed in another ceremony by Mark’s father before the guests made the most of the garden games and sipped champagne. Soon after, the heaven’s opened and everyone ran for cover in the tent. I have to be honest, there were times when I didn’t think we’d see the sun again that day. However, as the tables were cleared and the couple danced along with their guests, we were treated to the most beautiful sunset, providing an opportunity for some glorious golden hour portraits.

Lisa and Mark’s wedding delivered in every possible way. Wonderful people in the most wonderful of settings.

Something that was very apparent when meeting Beth & Lee for the first time, was the vision that they had for their weddin. They were very keen to keep the whole day relaxed with minimal fuss that would allow them to celebrate the occasion with their closest family and friends.

The tranquil surroundings and stunning countryside views on their farm near Retford, Nottinghamshire was a perfect place for a marquee reception. An enormous amount of work from Beth and Lee had made sure that the farm was looking it’s absolute best, with some lovely little touches which really showed their country roots.

The gentle hills that surround the farm made for a perfect backdrop for some portraits as the sun began to fade and before the couple were left to dance the night away with their friends and family.

A wedding at any time of the year is a special thing. However there is something about an autumn wedding. Nicola and Alan chose to get married at Elsham Hall. It was my second wedding there this year and despite only being a matter of weeks since the first one, it was almost as if it was totally different place. The rich autumnal colours brought a whole new feel to when I had been there previously, only to be enhanced even further by Nicola's decoration choices which features a lot of burnt oranges and reds. The whole occasion looked totally resplendent and the atmosphere throughout the entire day was one of pure happiness.. 

Nicola and Alan were a joy to photograph. Laid back, calm and keen to enjoy their day with their closest family and friends. Congratulations to them both.

Lisa & Mark: Pre-Wed

I've waited such a long time to post this! Lisa and Mark chose to have their pre-wedding shoot almost a year prior to their wedding and with a busy end to 2017, it's prevented me from sharing. 

Back in the late summer, I met up with the happy couple along with their pooch Daisy in the beautiful surroundings of Winnats Pass in the Peak District. This particular spot must be one of my most favourite places to escape to, so the opportunity to go and shoot their was always going to be special.

You often hear the Greek island of Santorini being described as a 'bucket list' type of destination. With it's unique landscape, idyllic, quaint towns and postcard views, I can certainly see why. 

So when Jess & Paul got in touch asking me to be a part of their wedding day it's fair to say the decision was an easy one. Le Ciel, on the outskirts of Imerovigli was the location for the most beautiful and intimate of ceremonies. With a handful of their closest friends and family in attendance, Jess and Paul's day was spectacular from start to finish. 

It was also rather hot. Even now, I'm still not sure how the groomsmen managed in the mid-summer heat wearing a 3 piece suit! When it came to whisking the couple off for some photos, it was a photographers playground with incredible architecture, rustic details and panoramic views galore.  As you can probably tell, I rather enjoyed it!
