Beautiful Tipi Wedding at Alcott Wedding Venue – Chelsea and Jim

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

We hit it off from the day we met. So much so, Chelsea and I would meet up for ‘wedding chat’ dates that would be lunch dates, with a little bit of wedding talk at the end.

For such a long time I was waiting for this day to come around. To see it all come together. I’d never been to a wedding with bumper cars there for a start and I knew there were so many details to look forward to!

When the day finally arrived, we thought it wasn’t going to stop raining. They were having a Tipi wedding at Alcott Wedding Venue and rain wasn’t a welcome guest! It didn’t put anyone off though, in fact, once you were in the Tipi, you didn’t really notice what was going on outside.

Eventually the rain did stop, everyone went outside and the evening do began on the bumper cars! Quite an entertaining thing to watch when everyone had been on the table wine!

I really hope you enjoy the pictures and witnessing that even if it does rain on your Tipi wedding, you’ll be having too much fun to even care!

Rhianna and Michael’s Tipi Wedding – Newlands Bishop Farm Wedding

Tipi wedding
Rhianna and Mike are two of the nicest, most genuine people I have had the pleasure of meeting. Once they started telling me about their plans, I could see it was them!
They picked this wonderful venue called Newlands Bishop Farm. This venue is a working farm but holds weddings on weekends. To help at these weddings, they employ adults with learning disabilities, mental health problems and brain injuries. All the income generated from weddings goes directly to the development of Newlands Bishop Farm. It’s a wonderful place!
The atmosphere on the day was amazing. I hope you can see by the pictures how happy and relaxed everyone was.

Gorgeous Farm Wedding – Liv and Andy

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

I first met Liv and Andy on their engagement shoot and we went for a walk to view the Church and where the reception was going to be. As far as I knew, it was at Andy’s Grandparents farm, not too far away. We approached this beautiful house and it wasn’t until a little further on I realised Andy’s Grandad was keen on trains. So much so that he’d built his own railway in the garden!

When you think this family couldn’t get any better, the wedding day arrived. I walked into Liv’s Parents house and instantly thought I’d never seen anything like it. I was shown the most beautiful dress and asked who the designer was, to be told Liv’s Mum had made it! Can this family be anymore talented?

I hope the photos show what an amazing day this was…..

Birtsmorton Court Summer Wedding – Suzy and Tristan

Birmingham Wedding PhotographerWhen you imagine your perfect venue, Birtsmorton Court in Worcestershire is up there with the best! It is unbelievably beautiful and there is no way you could possibly see all of it in one day.

I met Suzy’s Parents at an open day held at Birtsmorton Court. We hit it off straight away and the next thing I knew, Suzy and Tristan’s wedding had finally arrived.

It was all held at the venue, from Bridal prep to the first dance, so the atmosphere was very relaxed. Nerves appeared when the dress went on (as they always do) but you never would have guessed when you saw how beautiful Suzy looked walking towards her future Husband.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather. We were spoilt for choice when taking the photos and the guests enjoyed their drinks reception in the courtyard, overlooking the moat and grounds.

If I captured majority of my weddings here, I would be a very happy Photographer!

A Mythe Barn, Harry Potter Themed Wedding – Sarah and Hayley

Mythe Barn Wedding VenueI met Sarah and Hayley at an open evening at Mythe Barn. Two nervous Brides walking around, wondering how people were going to respond when they told them they were marrying each other! They’d had some rubbish experiences before this open evening with some suppliers and luckily, it wasn’t the case with me!

Then, they lost my details!! This resulted in the both of them Googling Photographers in Birmingham with a flower in their name. Knowing them like I do now, this does not surprise me one bit! Thank goodness they tracked me down…. Read more

Warwick House Wedding – Sophie and Dan

Birmingham Wedding PhotographerA few years ago, I became friends with a wonderful Woman called Abigail. She is the amazing talent behind Pumpkin events. We have worked together quite a few times now, on styled shoots and couples weddings but nothing was more rewarding than Abigail recommending me to her own family members.

This beautiful Bride is called Sophie and she is Abigail’s Sister (no pressure there then). After the Girls got ready at the Welcombe Hotel in Stratford upon Avon, we all headed to St Peter’s Catholic Church in Leamington Spa, where I don’t even think Dan was prepared to see how beautiful his bride looked walking down the aisle.

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photographer – Stacey and Alf

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

Having been to Elixir in Ibiza before and knowing how amazing the couples are treated there, I was so excited when Stacey’s email landed in my inbox!

From blogging Heather and Ste’s wedding, Stacey and Alf were able to see Elixir for themselves and apparently, it was from this blog post that they decided it was the place for them. How amazing is that?

These guys are up there with some of my most chilled out couples. Stacey was still writing her group shot list on the morning of the wedding!

The ceremony was beautiful, over looking the beach and with a little bit of cloud, so it wasn’t too hot. After this came the food! Have I ever mentioned the food at Elixir? Some of the best I have seen and tasted.

The best part was when Stacey asked if we could go off again, just the three of us, for some more photos at sunset. YES!! It’s at this time when my couples can have some alone time. It’s wonderful to be surrounded by your friends and family but spend some time with each other too. It slows the day down, even if it is just for twenty minutes.

It was such a beautiful, relaxed celebration and I hope you can imagine this from the images. Enjoy!

Bordesley Park Wedding Photographer – Steph and Ben

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

It’s not until I come to write a blog post that I remember I meet my couples in some weird and wonderful circumstances. Steph and I met at a very bad wedding fayre. When I say very bad, I mean roughly about 5 couples came to it.

I was obviously there about photography and Steph was there selling her amazing cakes. It’s very silly putting me by a cake stand, especially when there are no couples to speak to, so naturally, I went to speak to Steph.

Forget how good her cake was a minute, Steph and I got on very well and had a giggle throughout the day. Fast forward a couple of years and I get an email…..

“I’m sure you won’t remember me, I fell in love with your photography at a wedding fayre, and have kept hold of your details since then for the day I may need them for myself. That day has finally come as I got engaged this weekend! So after we told the world and his dog, one of the first things I wanted to do was get in touch with you.”

Of course I remembered her cake!! I want to tell you how much emails like the above mean to us suppliers. They mean the World! To think that Steph had kept my details until it was her turn to be a Bride made me well up and I couldn’t wait to reply and hear about their plans.

At the time of Steph and Ben getting in touch, they didn’t even have a venue booked, so it was lovely to be able to hear about their journey right from the very start. They picked Bordesley Park wedding venue in Worcestershire and I was excited to go there myself, having never been there.

Meeting up with Steph beforehand I asked “what is your colour theme?” Steph’s reply was “every colour!” Yay!!

Upon entering the marquee, the first thing to hit me was the pompoms all around the edge. Steph’s Mum had apparently spent hours on these and they really did make the room.

The day was as relaxed as I imagined it would be and I will now leave you with the pictures. I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I loved capturing them.

Thank you for remembering me Steph and thank you for now being someone I call a friend x

Wethele Manor Wedding Photographer – Emma and Tony

wethele manor wedding

I first met Emma and Tony at their house before the wedding because they wanted to meet up with a few people to make sure they got on. The conversation was flowing as normal, “would you like a drink”, “how do you work” and then we mentioned things we like.

I’m a huge ‘comic book’ film fan, and I mentioned this, stating X Men was my favourite. I thought I was pretty clued up on this stuff, until I met Emma. To say we couldn’t stop talking after this is an understatement, so much so, that Tony had somewhere to go and kicked me out because this meeting was going on far longer than he anticipated (OK, slight exaggeration)!

This friendship has continued all through the planning and I’m now happy to have Emma as a good friend. It helped her cats liked me apparently *crazy cat Lady alert.

To see all the plans coming together at Wethele Manor, after talking about them for so long, was amazing. Here is just a snippet of what they got up to and yes, Emma did have a lightsaber for a bouquet.

Dress by The Couture Company (because I know people will be loving it!)
