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!

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!!
