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.

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).

Engagement Advice

Having an Engagement Shoot? Work it!

We’ve always included an engagement shoot in our wedding package for a few reasons. Firstly we have large, intimidating cameras – sorry but we need them. Secondly, most people aren’t used to being followed around by a photographer. Chandler smiles are often an issue!

An engagement shoot is the perfect way to become accustomed to having your photos taken, so on your big day you already know us and our cameras, and can simply enjoy your day without giving the photography a second thought. Read More...
