Lindsay & Andy

Well what can I say about Lindsay and Andy’s amazing big day? Firstly, after 14 years together, it’s about bloomin’ time! Secondly it was so much fun.

I think it’s fair to say that Lindsay and Andy don’t take themselves too seriously, and I loved that.

We laughed so much on the day and that is what it should be all about. Laughing, having fun, enjoying every minute. Unlike a lot of weddings it actually felt like for a few hours we slowed down time and were really able to absorb everything.

As Ferris once said “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. “ and these guys somehow found time to stop and enjoy. They had a movie theme for their day and included absolute classics, including Lindsay’s favourite So I Married an Axe Murderer. Love it!! Oh and the blue theme…..well the story goes that Lindsay found some amazing Irregular Choice shoes that she just had to wear and everything came from that….well when you find THE shoes….girl you’ve just gotta roll with it. Anyway enough rambling….please take a moment to look through all the sneak peeks….I guarantee they’ll make you smile!

Thank you so much Lindsay and Andy and all of your lovely friends and family who made me feel really wanted and welcomed me with open arms. The only way that I can finish off is just to leave you with some wise words…………… “Be Excellent To Each Other”

 

 

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…..
