Sadie & Aaron

 

I have no words….this wedding was incredible!  Sadie and Aaron literally tied the knot yesterday at Tretower Castle in Brecon, Wales and it was beautiful. They had my lovely friend Ellie of Alternative Ceremonies Uk conducting their handfasting which was totally unique to them.

They even included their gorgeous son Izaiah which made everyone cry!

Aaron told me his kick ass grooms outfit was inspired was inspired by Jonathan Davis from the band Korn’s attire…..I think he nailed it!!

After the ceremony the guests got to partake in some archery, horseshoe throwing and croquet…..all that we were missing was jousting….but I am not sure I would trust those groomsmen jousting 😉 We even managed to do our own take on the Last Supper.

Sadie and Aaron booked the low key The Muse, Brecon for their party as they wanted a blank canvas space where they could really let their hair down. Sadly I missed the dancing but I can imagine it went down big time!! It was a truly amazing day, full of love (the speeches killed me!!) and I was honoured to be a part of it.

 

Julia & James

This is the beautiful and classically British wedding of Julia and James. I started out the morning at Julia’s mum and dad’s beautiful house where I could see lots of creativity and I just knew that would flow through to the wedding. Julia’s mum designed the stationary, Order of service, table plan and place cards for the big day and it was truly beautiful. I love the little personal touches and bits that are crafted with love by loved ones and you could see the effort Julia’s mum made with these.

The ceremony and celebrations took place at the ever beautiful Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. I love this venue. Not only is it gorgeous but the staff are always amazing!! Everything was absolutely perfect.

The ceremony was really beautiful and very heartfelt….there may even have been a little tear in my eye!! I think James was very excited to have married his girl!

One thing I will remember forever is the huge outpouring of love at this wedding….oh and the speeches…they were hilarious!!!

As I often like to do we left the majority of the couple shots until later in the day so that Julia and James could relax and enjoy some time with their lovely guests and it was lovely to head off together for those shots after the meal….although the walk back up to the lodge nearly killed this little photographer….time to join a gym I think!!

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!
