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.

Sarah & Paul

Sarah and Paul’s day was one of those days that just left me speechless, it was like no other wedding I have had the honour to photograph. Out was tradition, and time plans and in was chilling, kids tearing up the place and fun.

Sarah and Paul planned their entire day around the huge amount of kids that would be attending, they made sure there was fun things for them to do all day. There were creation stations, a bouncy castle, a ball pit and freedom. In essence the kids could be kids. Which was good as there were more kids than adults so there may have been a revolution on their hands!

What Sarah and Paul wanted from their photography was pure, honest documentation of all the elements of the day. No restrictions, free reign to tell the story.

It was amazing!!

I can’t really do it justice with words so please look through the sneak peeks. I would love to know if you can hear and feel the day from the images.

On Saturday I shot the beautiful wedding of Maddy and Alex.

 

I honestly don’t have the words to describe how much thought went in to every detail.

 

From the bridesmaids presents and the couture dress from my sister in law Vikki at Liliia right through to personalised peg dolls for all 80 guests!!

It must have been an unreal amount of work!!

 

Maddy and Alex had a handfasting where they celebrated their love and their journey to their day including the arrival of their little girl Winter-Lily….I am not ashamed to say I blubbed like a baby…..big streams of tears!!

Thank you so much Maddy, Alex and Winter-Lily for letting me share in your incredible day.

Fran and Lewis Got Married ~ A Preview 08.03.15

Yesterday was Fran and Lewis’s Halloween wedding……”wait…..hang on…….isn’t it March?” I hear you cry! Well yes you are quite right it is March, originally these guys were due to get married on Halloween but a surprise mini person in the oven made them postpone.

 

So we finally arrived at their little big day and Nancy, their new addition, really added something special to the celebrations. They were also joined by their Sphynx cats, Patti and Elijah who I have totally fallen in love with. Oh and let’s all do a big GTFI for cats at a wedding…..awesome!!

 

They had a very relaxed day with just 26 guests, starting with a legal ceremony in the castle and followed by a handfasting in the ancient ruins….it was truly amazing! After a spot of lunch most of the guests went home but a few friends headed to Fran and Lewis’s home for drinks, pizza, and snuggling on the sofa watching horror films……perfect.

 

When we got back to theirs Lewis introduced me to his beloved chickens and we had fun trying to get some pictures in the dark! Bonus points for anyone who can name the horror film they were watching!!!
