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...

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 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...

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...

What to add to your Wedding

Following on from my last post about theming your wedding, I’m going to discuss the difficult subject of adding suppliers & things to your big day.

You want it to be memorable, and you want it to feel like a ‘real’ wedding – but not the stuffy kind, where everyone feels overly formal and never quite relaxes. It’s a tough balance – add too little and it might be a slow day, add too much and it might feel more like a funfair. Read More...
