This Is What Makes a Brilliant Wedding

First off, congratulations! Although I guess like most of our couples you’ve probably already got quite a history together, right? By this point you probably have a fairly good idea of what the other likes – that makes life a little easier. But still, there’s a lot to organise!

In the last years we’ve witnessed hundreds of people getting married, and met countless people in the wedding industry. Each of the following posts detail what we think works, and what doesn’t, for various parts of a wedding. Read More...

Granary Barn Wedding: Land Rovers and Cheesecake!

Fleur and Corrie first met in Burton Pidsea, after being set up by family and friends. Over their mutual love of chocolate hobnobs, their romance blossomed (we don’t blame them – they’re our favourites too!). Corrie popped the question outside the Minerva on Hull Marina, their favourite place to eat and drink gin! Fleur said yes, and the wedding planning began.

We were super excited about Fleur and Corrie’s wedding, as they chose to celebrate at Granary Barn, a brand new venue at Clapham Holme Farm. Read More...

Skidby Millhouse Wedding: A Gorgeous Sunset & A Handmade Purse

Way back in 2011, Sarah & Tom met as apprentices working together at the same company. A few years later, on the day of their 5 year anniversary, Tom popped the question! They were actually in Las Vegas at the time seeing Sarah’s favourite band, Guns N’ Roses, on top of the Stratosphere (not jealous at all guys). Sarah was definitely not expecting Tom’s proposal, and ended up crying every time she told the story for months afterwards – we’re not surprised! Read More...

Rise Hall, Wedding

Rise Hall Wedding: An Ice Cream Van & Rainbows at Dusk

Rebecca & Tom, rather sweetly, met while they were at school – and encountered each other for the first time on a school field! They reunited 3 years later in a restaurant, and from then on, their relationship has blossomed.

Sometime later, on Father’s Day, Rebecca & her Dad went for a walk around Beverley Westwood. Rebecca simply thought they were enjoying some Father & Daughter time, reminiscing about the good ol’ days. Little did she know he was leading her to Tom who, despite getting a little lost, popped out of a bush to surprise her! Read More...

The Highfield House Wedding

Highfield House Wedding: A Family Jaguar & A Big Band

Lucy & Phil’s wedding journey began at Christmas, just after their trip to Edinburgh. It was the first Christmas Day spent together in their new house, and Phil popped the question after Lucy had served him a lovely breakfast! We got to know them better over an engagement shoot at the gorgeous Elloughton Woods, a location chosen by Lucy. We really made the most of it too – and tried out a ton of poses and locations to make sure everyone was prepared for the day itself! Read More...

France Chateaux, Rustic Wedding

Chateau de Miserai Wedding: A 500 Mile Roadtrip & So Much Sun

Sam & Claire first met after joining the same Roller Derby team in Hull, where they quickly bonded and became known by others as ‘double trouble’! During a trip to Budapest, they went on a night river cruise down the Danube. Moments before tucking into a gorgeous meal, Claire popped the question – of course, Sam said yes! In hindsight, though, Claire wished she’d maybe waited till after the meal, as there were far too many tears of joy to then enjoy the 5-courses! Read More...

Saltmarshe Hall Wedding

Saltmarshe Hall Wedding: An Outdoor Ceremony & Riverside Portraits

We’ve known Paris & Danny for a rather long time now, they’re one of those couples that seems to have been together forever! They actually met when they were just teenagers back in Year 7, hanging out at Costello Athletics Club.

A few years later, during a trip to the city of romance, Danny popped the question! Yep – he proposed to Paris…in the city of the same name (There’s an amazing pun to be found in this somewhere, I’m sure). Read More...

Barmbyfield Barn Wedding: A Homemade Sweet Stand & A Glowing Sunset

Barmbyfield Barn Wedding: A Homemade Sweet Stand & A Glowing Sunset

Sophie & Joel’s story began a few years back, when they met each other on a night out. After challenging each other to a moonwalk competition on the dance floor – they couldn’t help but fall in love! After spending 5 years together, Joel decided it was time to pop the question, and proposed to Sophie at her parent’s house!

Set on having a rustic wedding, Sophie and Joel found their dream venue after a visit to Barmbyfield, and felt straight away that the old barn fit perfectly into their vision. Read More...

Ideal Engagement Shoot Locations

Part of our This Is What Makes a Brilliant Wedding series

Our last engagement post covered what couples usually do for their engagement shoot. But the most popular question I get asked is “Where should we have our engagement shoot?”

There are a few good answers around the Hull area, but the best way to sum up a perfect engagement shoot location is this – somewhere you have open spaces, interesting backdrops, and a bit of cover from the elements (English weather could provide sideways rain or blinding sun after all).
