Ben & Fi

Fi and Ben at got married at the spectacular Peckforton Castle in Cheshire. As it was my first visit I was truly taken aback at how beautiful it was and how amazing the grounds were….especially if you went off the beaten track a bit!

These guys first found me when their friends booked me for their Mexican themed big day.  I knew that their wedding wouldn’t be exactly traditional despite the grand setting.

When I saw Ben I was totally in love with his amazing gold suit! Any groom who can rock a gold suit wins everything for me!! It was definitely a first and I’m not sure if I’ll ever have another groom in a gold suit again!!

These guys opted to have the beautiful Mango (the owl) deliver the rings….which every photographer worth their salt will tell you is a tough thing to photograph particularly in an atmospheric and moody venue.  But both Mango and I did our bit and I’m pretty pleased with the result!!

They finished up the night rocking out to their friends band in style! These guys weddinged like pro’s!!

Chrissie & Pete

This was the big day, the day the wonderful Chrissie and Pete said “I will like only your face until one of us dies”. They held their wedding in the land of books, Hay on Wye….simply because they love it there. They chose The Globe to be the base for the day, starting with tea and cake before the ceremony at Booths Books.

Chrissie sported an amazing dress customised by her friend….it was so Chrissie….no other dress could have been better!

These guys utterly adore each other and you can see it pouring out of them like rays of sunshine!! I dare you not to smile looking at these photo’s! Impossible huh!!

I urge you to take a moment to look through these and feel the love…..and if you can….have a little listen to The Lovecats by The Cure as this was their song and it sums up everything about the day!

Be sure to keep an eye on Rock n Roll Bride Magazine for more from this wedding…..

Khui & Nan

Khui and Nan’s wedding was amazing!

I started the morning with a spot of bridal prep in Nan’s parents lovely home. There were a few people there but I was so warmly welcomed and I felt at home very quickly. Nan’s mum stole my heart, she’s only little in stature but man is she big in personality. She even walked me around her beautiful garden.
Khui and Nan opted to marry at the stunning Belair House in Dulwich (yes I did have the theme tune to the The Fresh Prince of Bel Air in my head all day). I’ve never visited this venue before and it won me over. The venue is gorgeous and the staff are so friendly.

After the ‘I do’s!’ Nan changed in to her traditional Chinese robes and they held a tea ceremony. This was my first time shooting one and I absolutely loved it.

We then all headed over to Docklands for a Chinese feast. At this point all the rest of the guests joined so there were over 200 people for Khui and Nan to speak to. I don’t know how they did it but they managed to make it around everybody. During the meal Khui and Nan went around every table and had a toast. So many happy faces and love. AMAZING.

Thank you so much Khui and Nan for allowing me to share your day and for being so fantastic whenever I wanted to steal you for couple shots. Thank you to your family and friends who made myself and Rowan feel so welcome and to the lovely guests on our table who we really enjoyed chatting to during the meal.

More Chinese weddings please…..all smiles, hugs and delicious food!

Charlie & Chris – The Party

So you’ve already seen the sneak peeks of Charlie and Christopher’s gorgeous intimate wedding in Bakewell well here is the second part of their wedding. The party!!

Colourful, vibrant, fun…..a real celebration.

People travelled from far and wide to celebrate with these guys….it truly was wonderful.

All the details were lovingly crafted by the wedding team that Charlie had put together and I have to congratulate them….it looked amazing.

What I really loved was that after spending time with the families on Tuesday I felt like part of the family when Friday rolled around. Although I’m sure Christopher’s mum was glad when me and my pesky camera headed home 😉

For the first time I’ve was called an emotional terrorist….I think I love that and might use it from now on….thanks Charlie

If these photo’s don’t make you smile then I don’t know what will…..

Alternative Peak District Wedding Photography – A couple of weeks ago I had the huge honour of documenting Charlie and Christopher’s very low key and intimate wedding. They were married in Bakewell, in the Peak District surrounded by their immediate families. It was emotional. It’s fair to say that Christopher is not an emotional guy normally (he will tell you that himself) but seeing how beautiful Charlie looked on the morning of the wedding completely undid him….and everyone!

It was a VERY emotional day, tears and smiles all day long.

After the ceremony I stole the happy couple off for some quick shots together before heading to the very quaint Lavender Tea Rooms for high tea. We had a lot of fun exploring the side streets of Bakewell. I think I could have stolen them for the whole day had I been allowed.

I want to say a big thank you to both sides of the family for coping admirably with me snapping away….it’s hard to hide when there are only 14 other people there!
