Lisa & Mark

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.

Jess & Paul: Married

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!

One of the things that stuck with me from when I first met Naomi and Simon was the vision they had for their day. They wanted it to be fun, relaxed and everything that a wedding should be... a celebration. For them it wasn't just a day for themselves, but one for their family and friends. Something for everyone to enjoy. I'm glad to say that the day sure did deliver! 

I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a couple more in tune with one another than Naomi and Simon. They were a joy to work with. Constantly laughing and joking, they were as laid back as any couple I've had the pleasure of photographing. Their day was one filled with laughter, fun and games... the way any wedding should be. With family and friends coming from far and wide, not even the weather could spoil the occasion.

I've been looking forward to blogging this wedding for quite some time. Everything about this day looked magical. A woodland wedding with the most amazing details and a beautiful and kind couple who compliment one another wonderfully. Laura and Gavin both looked amazing and I'm so happy that their day was everything they had hoped for. 

I'd heard so much about the plans for the woodland ceremony and I'm glad to say that it surpassed all expectations. Creating this wonderful outdoor space had been a real labour of love for Gavin and the team at Hirst Priory who had worked tirelessly in the weeks and months leading up to the big day to make sure it was perfect. Of course, all fingers and toes had been crossed for good weather and we weren't disappointed with a beautiful sunny day that allowed things to run as planned. With lawn games aplenty and the drinks flowing in the evening sun, this really was a day filled with love and happiness. 

Here is the story of their day.

This was one hell of a wedding! An incredible venue (I dare say, one of my favourite settings so far), stunning details and a really great couple. 

It was the better part of 2 years since Amy had booked me to photograph her wedding with husband-to-be Jason. Since then I'd only seen them once, very briefly during a short recon trip to the Vicarage Boutique Hotel, Nottinghamshire. It was immediately clear why they'd been so keen to book this venue. Modest in size, but stunningly finished. The Vicarage Hotel oozes class. The same can be said of the couple and their guests. Everyone was so well catered for and the whole day was smiles all round. Even The odd rain shower couldn't spoil things.

 Huge congratulations to Amy & Jason.
