Super confident in front of the camera? If you are, that’s great! Let’s face it though, not many people are, and that’s fine too. This is a post for those of you who might have a few reservations about that part of the day, don’t worry – you’re not alone.

Let me guess: You’re probably worried that you’re going to look super awkward, and that somehow every blemish or flaw will be magnified – I mean, how often do we find that we’re de-tagging ourselves from those horrific photos our friends posted on Facebook?! Read More...

Memorable Ideas to Add to Your Wedding

Part of our This Is What Makes a Brilliant Wedding series

Following on from my last post about styling 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...

Every time a new set of wedding photos makes it’s way back to the studio, I get pretty excited. I spend my days editing countless images of so many wonderful weddings. Some are big, some are small, some are super traditional, and others are a bit more relaxed. You all have your own unique idea of exactly what you want your wedding to be like – and I get to see all the attention to detail that’s been made, I love it! Read More...

Sledmere House Wedding: Country Barns and a Family Car

Sledmere House Wedding: Country Barns and a Family Car

Jenni and James first met back in their years at secondary school, when they had a year-long relationship at the dear age of 14 – how sweet! Years later, while celebrating Jenni’s birthday in The Lake District, they battled the wind during a hike up Loughrigg Fell. James set up his camera to take a photo of them together and, rather sneakily, set it to video instead! Jenni could barely hear him through the gale force winds when he got down on one knee, but of course, she said yes anyway! Read More...

Rise Hall Wedding: Top Hats and a Uilleann

A few years back, we met the lovely Daniella and Aubrey at a wedding fayre. They had their hearts set on a classic, traditional English wedding in the gorgeous county of East Riding. Their special day was an exciting one for us, not only were we looking forward to all the top hats and tailcoats, it was one of our first catholic weddings too!

The morning was nice and relaxed. Daniella chose to get ready at home, with Sam (Chick Artistry) providing make-up and the bridesmaids helping keep Daniella calm, and doing a spot of last minute ironing too! Read More...

Boutipi Wedding

Boutipi Wedding: Woodland Paths & Haybales by the Pond

We were looking forward to Katy & Kristian’s wedding from the moment we met them. A lovely, laid back couple – we couldn’t wait to see what they had in mind for their big day! Katy & Kristian’s journey began back in 2012, when they met at a friend’s birthday party. Sometime later, down at St. Ives Harbour, Kristian popped the question during a gorgeous sunset. Of course, Katy said yes, and the wedding preparations began!

Looking to make their wedding a relaxed occasion, Katy & Kristian hired a secluded field. Read More...

Katy & Rob’s story started back in 2010, when the couple were introduced through a mutual friend on a night out. After Katy’s friends insisted on Rob asking for her number, their journey began! A few years later, surrounded by candles and lovingly crafted origami stars, Rob popped the question – how could Katy say no! We’ve been good friends with them for some time, and we couldn’t wait to photograph their big day.

The couple were set on having an elegant, yet modern, wedding. Read More...

Louise and Simon’s journey started back in 2008 on Facebook, followed by Simon’s proposal in 2014 – with a traditional bent knee! We met them during preparations for their laid back, but stunning wedding.

In the heart of East Yorkshire’s countryside, Oaklands, East Yorkshire is a hidden gem; like really hidden, should we be down this road, hidden?! With it’s gorgeous woodlands and natural surroundings, it provided the perfect backdrop for the big day!

The openness of the venue provided the relaxed, festival atmosphere that Louise & Simon wanted for their guests. Read More...

West Carlton Guest House Boutipi Wedding: Tophats & Tipis

I was looking forward to Richard & Rich’s wedding for a long time. Their engagement shoot with their dogs pulling down trees and then the next minute posing for their photos as if trained for the event was the first taste of what the big day would be. We laughed the whole time, and although the Richard’s claimed they hadn’t been overly looking forward to their engagement shoot, the photos came out great (biased opinion here obviously) and they even had one photo set into cuff links for the wedding!
