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!

Don’t forget to check out part 2!!

Rach & Matt

28th May was a day I have been looking forward to for quite some time. You see…..since Rach and Matt first booked me I have become close friends with Rach. We’ve had super long chats on the phone and it turns out we have a lot in common (I spy a friend for life here!!). I could not wait to see these guys get hitched…..and I got to see it twice. You’ll love this alternative wedding in Birmingham….they made it truly personal to them.

They had a short registry office ceremony first to make it all legal. Original they didn’t think guests would want to come to that part but actually as the planning continued it turned out they did….which shows how loved these guys are.

After that Rach headed back to the hotel for an outfit change and we all headed over to the Birmingham Museum where Matt was greeting guests. Rach and Matt had a sneaky first look and then came in together (after having to sneak past the guests to get upstairs).

I don’t know how to sum this wedding up….other than to say it was an emotional rollercoaster. Soooo many tears from everybody…..and so much love.

Thank you everyone for letting this little camera toting ginger kid hang out with you all day and for making me feel so welcome. Matt, Rach……love you guys!! Have an amazing honeymoon

Bex & Keith

Who on earth gets married on a Monday I hear you ask!! Awesome people like Bex and Keith….that’s who! If I had to sum up today in one word it would be ‘Riot’. I don’t mean there was an angry mob chucking missiles, I mean it was tons of fun and there was a whole riot of colour. I make no apologies for how bright and vibrant these images are…BOOM….colour in your face!! This was a DIY wedding with a difference!!

These guys opted for a low key non-wedding type wedding. No speeches, no first dance…..just lots of love and laughter. Oh and let’s not forget their beautiful kids….they really stole the show. Chase’s breakdancing during the signing of the register had me in stitches!

This wedding truly had it all….including hand painted favours for each guest. Keith’s paintings blew my mind….and somehow he managed to create 100 perfect pictures. That’s dedication.

Thank you so much Bex and Keith for asking me to share you day with you. I had so much fun and I think I’ve made new friends for life….I mean….how many other people actually own a copy of the original Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy radio show!!

Laura & Jack

 

Laura and Jack’s wedding was beautiful and super low key wedding. This pair met online and fell in love prompting the lovely Laura to up sticks and move to that there London.

These guys are totally head over heels for each other, you can see it in their faces when they look at each other. Jack is super laid back and this really calms Laura when she’s feeling nervous….I saw that first hand on the wedding day when she was reunited with him.

They really are soul mates and it was an honour to have been part of their intimate wedding day. These guys opted to have a small wedding followed by some food and drinks at a local pub where they could mingle and enjoy time with the people that mean so much to them.

They decided that rather than have a party in the evening they would head to a swanky London hotel for time with their favourite person, each other….these guys are just way too cute!

Thank you Laura and Jack for a wonderful day and to your friends and family for making me feel like part of it all 🙂
