Sarah + Tom | Marquee wedding in Shefford | Bedfordshire Wedding Photography

The summer of 2018 was glorious for weddings and luckily for Sarah and Tom, the 16th of June was no exception. Sarah, along with her Mum and bridesmaids, got ready at Capelli’s Hair Salon in Henlow with the wonderful Dollie Mixtures on hand for make up. I met them there before we all made our way to Sarah’s parents house for sandwiches and final touches. It wasn’t long before it was time to go - Sarah and her Dad were making their way to the church on the back of a steam engine and the others in an assortment of vintage cars and buses so they had to allow themselves plenty of time to get there. I took a particular liking to Sarah’s gorgeous classic fiat 500, you’ve probably seen it all over my social media! It might have taken a while but everybody made it to the church in time for the ceremony, including Sarah and Tom’s dog Henry! Their reception was held in a marquee on a friend’s farm which had been filled with flowers and plants. Their quirky table plan was gorgeous and looked more like a display in a garden centre! This wedding was just full of personal touches and I loved that they were able to include so many things that meant a lot to them. What a day, wishing you all the best for the future Mr and Mrs Smith!

Rachael + John | Rustic Scottish Wedding at Dunglass Estate, East Lothian | Scottish Wedding Photography

After a week of snow blizzards and cold weather, I was relieved to make the journey to Dunglass Estate with the sun shining and not a snowflake in sight.  The venue  was looking beautifully spring like, surrounded by daffodils with baby lambs running and jumping in the field beside.  I made my way over to the house where Rachael and her mum and sisters were getting ready.  Everybody was so relaxed and calm; Rachael’s three sisters, her  bridesmaids, were totally on top of any jobs that needed doing so Rachael was able to focus on getting  ready and enjoy the morning.  I popped over to the church and marquee to see them all set up and take a few shots and when I got back the girls were just getting the finishing touches to their hair and make up ahead of the most exciting part of bridal preparations -  dress time!  The bridesmaids buzzed around Rachael, each with a job to do, and she was into her dress and looking incredible in no time. After a few family photos, I left them so I could  join the boys who were greeting the guests.  Staff were handing out hot water bottles to everyone and cosy blankets lay on the chairs in the church - it might be have been spring but it is Scotland after all! It didn’t take long before the atmospheric little church was full of excited family and friends and  John made his way to the front with his groomsmen, to await his bride.  The sound of bagpipes in the distance soon let us know she was on her way.  The ceremony was beautiful and personal and the church was the perfect setting.  Rachael was the happiest bride and I don’t think I took a single photo all day where she wasn’t smiling!  The newly married couple made their way out of the church for a moment alone while we organised everybody for the much anticipated confetti shot...I knew from chatting at their engagement session that both Rachael and John were looking forward to this.  Thanks to the wonderful bridesmaids, it went smoothly and we nailed it! Rachael and John enjoyed drinks in the marquee with their friends and family before some group photographs and their couple portraits, which we got through really quickly thanks to the rain!  They had very kindly arranged for me to sit amongst the guests for dinner so after some brilliant speeches we tucked into one of the best wedding meals I’ve ever had.  I left them shortly after their first dance in the capable hands of their fantastic wedding band, Bleeker, ready to dance the night away.

Jane is such a talent. She photographed our wedding earlier this month and based on our preview shots alone, I have been inundated with compliments about her work. Jane is so lovely and captured our day with discretion which was something that was important to us.

I would absolutely recommend Jane to family and friends for their photography needs. I hope I have a reason to book with Jane again!

Jane, I can’t thank you enough. I am thrilled!

Laura + Lee | The Cricketers, Weston | Hertfordshire Wedding Photography

Laura and Lee were married back on the 20th May this year at The Cricketers, in Weston.  The pavilion restaurant of this cosy country pub had been transformed beautifully; with jars of flowers by Blooms of Baldock filling every surface and bunting and twinkling fairy lights overhead it was the perfect romantic setting.  The ceremony itself was personal and emotional and as packets of Kleenex were being found and shared around I learned an important lesson about being a wedding photographer - always keep the tissues handy! After the ceremony everyone headed outside for drinks and congratulations while the children had fun in The Play Den.  Everybody gathered in the small marquee before dinner to listen to the speeches and some live music by a friend of the couple (who also sang Laura down the aisle) which was another lovely and personal touch.  The sun shone all afternoon, waiting until everybody was seated for food before disappearing as the clouds rolled in and the rain arrived when it didn't matter anymore.  The rain fell softly outside as Laura and Lee took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife, where they were shortly joined by their closest family and friends.  A perfect end to a perfect day!
