An intimate London pub wedding at Paradise by way of Kensall Green - Emily & James

Girl checks Tinder.  Boy arrives in Seattle from the UK.  Boy also checks Tinder (he says, because he doesn't know anyone yet).  One week later they meet up.  She thinks he's a bit keen having only been in the US for one week.  

He wins her over.  

The rest is history. 

I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to be part of Emily & James' beautiful, laid back, intimate wedding... bursting to the rafters with love and laughter (and yes, I am aware I sound like a cliche fucking motivational poster).  But it WAS.  Emily's family flew over from Seattle and went adventuring around Ireland and Scotland en route to London and James' family travelled down from Newcastle and that was it.  Just their families, the two of them, and me. 

The ceremony was wonderful... officiated by Emily's brother-in-law and with no official start time... (Emily: "We'll just get there when we get there")... they said their vows in the most beautiful room... in 'Paradise'... and I'm pretty sure everyone, including me, cried.

Two become swan... a beautiful Stone Barn wedding in the Cotswolds - Rebes & Charlie

Last Saturday the very gorgeous Rebes/Rebecca married her 'Swannie'/Charlie at Stone Barn near Cheltenham and the day couldn't have been more perfect... a lively (very!) group of friends and family gathered to see this pair make their promises to one another in an amazing ceremony complete with speeches, sing songs ('So happy togetherrrrrr... bah bah bah bah ba-bah bah-bah bah-bah bahhhhh') and some foot-stamping tin whistle.

Later the Manchester gang broke out into an impromptu sing along of 'Wonderwall' and everyone joined in.  It was an amazing day for an amazing couple.  These are just some of my favourites.  

Quick shout out to the talented Lee from Shutterbox Films who is always excellent company (missed you though, Dawn).

A Swedish/Welsh tipi wedding in North London - Alicia & Morgan

Last weekend I was down near Finchley in North London on what turned out to be (or certainly felt like!) the hottest day of the year... and what a wedding... a tipi, a beautiful Swedish church, Welsh cakes made by the groom's mum, ice cream, impromptu speeches, aquavit shots, black cabs, lots of laughter and tears and the cutest little Swedish cabin in the garden.  Here are some of my favourites from Alicia & Morgan's wedding last weekend.

Cat & Dan's mega stylish Preston Court wedding, Canterbury

Delighted to share some of my favourites today from Cat & Dan's incredible wedding.  I absolutely love Preston Court... such an incredibly beautiful and unique venue and to be blessed with the weather as well. Perfection. And the little church of St Mildred's next door is super pretty too - I can see why they wanted to get married there. 

The bridesmaids' look (and dancing) was strong, as was Cat's dress... absolutely beautiful in its simplicity and the styling was just gorgeous.  Add to that the cute kiddos playing confetti with gravel, the sing-a-long & emotional speeches, the absolutely brilliant band (Coco and the Butterfields) and all the fun of the fair... it was an epic day.   Congratulations Cat & Dan and happy honeymoon!  xxx

A floral filled marquee wedding at home, Heswall & Parkgate - Sarah & Richard

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting this beautiful wedding just up the road in Heswall... I met up with Sarah & Richard the week before for a G&T in our local and I just knew it was going to be a wonderful day... these two were so giddy with excitement.  Or giddy from the gin.  One of the two.  

"Can we possibly nip to Parkgate, to the spot where we got engaged for a few photos after the ceremony?  We'll drive ourselves in a vintage two seater Morgan."  Um... YES.  

From start to finish I've never seen a bride smile quite as much as Sarah did.  A highly infectious smile at that.  And the usual cool, calm and confident Richard was more than a little nervous before the ceremony but I'm guessing once he saw that smile it all melted away.

Here are a few of my personal favourites...
