Alison and Tom - Amazing Tipi Wedding at Flatts Barn, Scarborough

I couldn’t have asked for a more friendly, fun couple to photograph than Alison and Tom. Their wedding took place at Flatts Barn, Scarborough. It was such a unique and impressive venue that I really hope to work their again soon. The building is split into two levels with the majority of the guests situated on the lower level and bride and groom and close family on the upper level. It proved a challenge as I really wanted to show every aspect of this unique venue so made sure that we went back for some cool couple portraits later on in the day.

The reception was in a super cool Tipi which I absolutely love shooting as they always make for great pictures. There was also a caravan for the bride and groom to escape too in case they need five minutes to themselves! It was my first time in Scarborough and I was blown away with the quality of the light, so soft and magical and a photographers dream. I loved the relaxed nature of Alison and Toms wedding. They weren’t big into loads of staged group photos and instead love the candid documentary style which is my trademark and why they hired me . I felt very lucky to be spending the day with great people in an amazing part of the country.

Rene and Phil - Relaxed Rustic Marquee Wedding in Tetbury, Gloucestershire

What a brilliant day I had last summer photographing Rene & Phil get hitched down in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. They had planned their day to be completely relaxed and chilled out so opted for a marquee style wedding in the huge garden of a lovely little pub. When I arrived nice and early in the morning Phil was there with his friends getting the place ready. People were sweeping, blowing up balloons, putting the chairs out for the ceremony. The outdoor bar area where the ceremony was to take place was awesome, so cool and rustic looking!

After spending some time shooting the preparation I dashed off to a nearby hotel where Rene was getting ready with her bridesmaids. As soon as the door opened I was greeted with a beaming smile.. I knew the day was going to be perfect!

Vered & Lewis - Outdoor Jewish Wedding Ceremony at Slaugham Place, East Sussex

This summer I was lucky enough to photograph the amazing jewish wedding of Vered and Lewis at the incredible Slaugham Place in East Sussex.  A setting like no other, Slaugham Place has a real sense of history and romance about it. With the sun beating down everything was perfect for Vered & Lewis to get hitched! Jewish weddings are energetic, fun and colourful occasions full of love and togetherness. After completing the traditional Jewish wedding ceremony which included the breaking of the glass by Lewis it was then onto the crazy dancing in the marquee!  There's only one word for it...wow! If you're taking part it will leave you totally exhausted after being thrown, spun and bounced around! I didn't know which way to turn, on my left was Lewis being thrown in the air and on my right was Vered doing a spot of skipping! haha ...An amazing wedding which I will remember always as being such good fun! Congratulations to you both!! 

Kim & Pete - Fun English Country Garden Wedding In Newport Pagnell

I arrived at Kim's parents home in Newport Pagnell near Milton Keynes to start the bridal prep and was instantly met by huge smiles and made to feel like part of the family. I knew straight away that this was my type of wedding!! Kim & Pete made it clear to me they wanted natural, fun, candid photos that focussed on not just them but much more on their friends and family kicking back and relaxing!  

I shoot tons of weddings every year but it's safe to say that this was right up there as one of the most relaxed. Kim & Pete made it their own with the wedding reception held in a marque in Pete's parents back garden that included everything from skipping ropes, a kids entertainer, hoola hooping, trampoline as well as fish and chips! With no speeches, sit down meal, official first dance or group shots it felt like a massive summer party! Congratulations to you both and thanks for making me feel so welcome! :-)
