The Best of 2017 Wedding Photography

Where do I begin…Firstly, thank you! Thank you so much for the ongoing support year on year, trusting me to capture your day for you. I can’t explain how much that means to me!

I’ve put together a handful of my favourite images from some of my amazing couples wedding days. I hope you like looking at them as much as I liked reliving the days all over again.

A DIY Wedding at Alveston Pastures Farm – Sophie and Craig

Alveston Pastures Farm Wedding Photographer

Where do I begin with this amazing wedding?! Sophie and Craig got married in Stratford Upon Avon Town Hall. It was the first time I had ever been there and it was such a beautiful building. It’s always nice when a Bride gets ready in a local hotel to where the ceremony is going to be and walks around to it. People on the way are so lovely and always like seeing a beautiful bride on the way to her wedding.

The reception was held at a venue called Alveston Pastures Farm. It was also the first time I had been there and it was a bit of a hidden treasure. One thing this venue offers, that a lot of venues don’t, is dry hire! Yes you read that right…a barn that allows a dry hire for your wedding!

So many of my couples try and find beautiful places where they can sort everything else out themselves and they are few and far between! This barn does and I had the pleasure as always, to also work alongside Rustic Roast Kitchen as the caterers. They provided the relaxed BBQ food that Sophie and Craig wanted for their day.

With a slight Harry Potter theme running through the day, guests enjoyed the photo booth, especially when it included the invisibility cloaks that were on offer to borrow ;). Then we came to the cake cutting but as you can imagine, it wasn’t your traditional cake cut. There was a cake table and if you were the lucky chosen one, you got to pick which cake you wanted for your table!

In the evening, it started to rain slightly and I commented to Sophie and Craig that it was a shame they hadn’t brought the umbrella they used on their engagement shoot, where it poured down and guess what? They had!! I couldn’t resit a few night time shots with this and was so happy we got to do this for both occasions.

I really hope you love the images. I certainly loved taking them…..

Welcombe Hotel Wedding – Stratford-upon-Avon – Cassie & Aston

Cassie and Aston had been through a few ups and downs during their wedding planning but everything seemed to happen for a reason. One of these downs was having to change venues three months before the wedding. This would throw most people into a blind panic but not these Guys. In fact, it couldn’t have worked out better.

I always loved receiving Cassie emails, telling me about the pompom journey, planning a boudoir shoot as a present for Aston on the morning of the wedding, um, OK there wasn’t many planning emails past that as we just talked about random stuff but hey, it would just get boring if we did right? 😉

Then the day came and it snowed. When I say snowed, I mean this stuff just kept coming! I couldn’t help but think about guests who might not be able to get there but I shouldn’t have worried. Those Guys would not miss a party!!

One thing it did cause a problem for though is going outside for couple shots. Everything had to happen indoors because the winds were so strong! Certainly made me think on my feet but we had so much fun.

This wedding was just over two weeks ago and I am blogging it so soon because I received the most wonderful email off the couple today and I’ve had permission to share it with you. Firstly, pictures……..
