Oh Lisa they’re absolutely PERFECT I can’t get over how amazing the pictures are. I knew you were good but oh my God they’re just amazing. You were exceptional on the day and everyone has commented. You made our day and we are so grateful of that. We have laughed we have cried, you have captured our wedding perfectly. We cannot thank you enough, you are incredibly talented and we wouldn’t have to think twice about recommending you to others. I am so glad Elisha recommend you to us!

Nicole and Jon got married in March at the lovely Hundred House, which is an understated country pub venue in Bridgnorth, Shropshire. It was a beautiful day and the sun shone all day long!

THE EXCITEMENT BEFORE THE WEDDING

Nicole got ready in the bridal prep suite of The Hundred House with her bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was so calm. Things started to get emotional after Nicole got into her dress, her bridesmaids reactions were all so lovely! She didn’t want to make her Dad entering the room into a big deal as she knew if it was she’d cry, and she didn’t want to ruin her make up before the ceremony. Her dad’s reaction was brilliant, and he, along with her bridesmaids all managed to keep her calm before she said ‘I do’. She then walked down the stairs and across the courtyard to get to the ceremony.

THE VOWS

The ceremony was an intimate affair in the barn. There were fairy lights everywhere, giving the barn a very cosy feel. Just before Nicole and her bridesmaids walked up the aisle, Jon’s nerves started to show, but he managed to calm himself down by taking a few steady breaths. Nicole practically ran up the aisle, partly due to nerves and partly because she couldn’t wait to see Jon and their beautiful little boy, Jenson. During the ceremony they had a beautiful reading. It was such a personal service and so meaningful. After the ceremony we headed outside for the confetti shot and to let all their guests congratulate them. The confetti shot was brilliant, little Jenson even managed to sneak in on the action in the background.

AFTER THE CEREMONY

The reception was in the bar at the venue. They chose Hundred House because it’s so cosy and relaxed and the food is incredible. It was a really relaxed wedding, which suited Nicole and Jon down to the ground. I love shooting The Hundred House weddings because it’s always so chilled. The gardens are also really beautiful, they’re a great feature of The Hundred House and are quite hidden away so it’s the perfect area to use for couple portraits.

They had a drinks reception in the afternoon, and a photobooth in the evening. A photobooth is always a great addition to a wedding, as it gives guests something extra to do in the evening and also gives them a souvenir from the wedding. They decorated the venue with fairy lights and florals, because it worked so well with the time of year. Their tables were named after all the places around the world that they had visited together, I really loved this personal touch.

For dinner they had Afternoon Tea, which was absolutely delicious. Afternoon Tea is a great wedding food option, not only does it look great but it tastes amazing too! It’s also a great option if you want something a bit less formal than a sit down, three course meal. The first dance was a romantic slow dance, and they finished off the evening with lots of crazy dancing. The party was incredibly wild, which is exactly what I like to see at a wedding.

The most memorable part of the day was when all their guests put bets on how long the speeches would last, because the loser of each table had to drink a shot or do a forfeit. The forfeit’s were brilliant and completely hilarious, one of them involved one of the (sober!) guests walking the length of the top table as a chicken. They also had a cake table during the party – it was such a great idea, you can never have too much cake!

THE COUPLE

Nicole wore an Anna Sorrano gown and Jon wore a River Island suit and they looked so wonderful together. Nicole’s flowers were absolutely stunning, they were by Louise McCaw and Jon’s suit was really lovely, it was a grey check suit, that he looked very dapper in.

Nicole and Jon’s wedding was just the happiest occasion and had such a fun atmosphere. Here’s their stunning wedding!

Jess and Alex got married last February at the gorgeous Blakelands Country House, which is a beautiful country house in Staffordshire. It was the most beautiful wedding and the sun shone all day long!

THE EXCITEMENT BEFORE THE WEDDING

Jess got ready in The Loft at Blakelands with her bridesmaids to keep her company, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. I had a good giggle with Jess’ bridesmaids when the registrars made us all crowd together at the bottom of the loft while they conducted Jess’ interview. The girls then walked together to get to the ceremony. As Jess and her bridesmaids walked down the aisle, everyone turned round to look, they looked absolutely stunning! Alex got ready at Blakelands too with his groomsmen in another part of the house to avoid seeing Jess.

THE CEREMONY

The ceremony was an intimate affair in the barn. It was decorated with beautiful fairy lights, these made a perfect background for their ceremony. During the ceremony they had a beautiful reading. It was so emotional and so unique.

THE AFTERNOON

The reception was in a beautiful room at the venue. They chose Blakelands Country House because it felt right from the moment they arrived and they just fell in love with it. It was a winter wedding, which was perfect for the cosy venue they chose. I love shooting winter weddings because the light is so pretty. Blakelands is such a gorgeous venue with so many different aspects to use from a photographic perspective, I love getting chance to shoot here.

They had a drinks reception in the afternoon, and DJ in the evening. I adored shooting Jess & Alex’s portrait session, they set aside a good amount of time for us to get some amazing shots and allowed me to be really creative. They decorated the venue with wildflowers and lots of colour, because they wanted to keep it simple. I loved how they decorated blakelands! Jess is a graphic designer so I knew she’d have an amazing eye for detail when it came to the decor, and I wasn’t disappointed.

For dinner they had proper wedding grub, which was loved by all the guests. The first dance was really lovely, with Jess’ nephew getting onto the dance floor to join in, and they finished off the evening with sparklers. Sparklers are such a great idea at a winter wedding, they give guests that extra bit of fun in the evening.

The most memorable part of the day was the speeches, because they were heartfelt and funny at the same time.

THE COUPLE

Jess wore a Maggie Sottero dress and Alex wore a Peter Posh suit with Jones Bootmaker shoes and they looked so incredible. Jess’s dress was stunning, the back had such incredibly intricate detail to it and Alex’s suit was really smart, I loved the grey waistcoat.

Jess and Alex’s wedding was so much fun and had such a chilled vibe. Here’s their gorgeous day!

It was very important to us that our wedding day had a very relaxed, informal feel about it and from the moment we discovered Lisa, we knew she would be perfect.

On the day we hardly noticed Lisa’s presence (sorry!), apart from capturing a select few formal shots, she somehow managed to blend into the background. This then allowed Lisa to capture some amazing natural shots, of our guests and ourselves enjoying the day.

For the couple shots she allowed us to have some one-to-one time together, taking a step back to enjoy the day and in that moment she managed to capture some truly magical moments. Every time we look through the pictures we are taken back to the day, and Lisa managed to capture the atmosphere perfectly.

From the time we spent getting ready, to our friends and family enjoying some intimidate conversations throughout the day and then later at night when she captured everyone enjoying themselves on the dance floor!

Lisa has an incredible eye for detail and in her photographs the colours really pop, making full use of her surroundings. We really can’t thank Lisa enough for capturing our wedding day perfectly and I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone else looking for a wedding photographer.

Becky and James got married in winter at the gorgeous Iscoyd Park, which is a stunning country house in Whitchurch, Shropshire. It was such a happy day and the sun even made an appearance!

BRIDAL PREP

Becky got ready in the bridal suite of Iscoyd Park with her bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was so relaxed. The bride then walked down the grand staircase at Iscoyd to get to the ceremony. James got ready at Iscoyd in a seperate room to Becky This was super handy aswas able to pop across the library where he was getting ready and take a few snaps.

GETTING HITCHED

The ceremony was a beautiful service in a beautiful room at the venue. The ceremony room at Iscoyd Park has the most amazing windows, which makes for some gorgeous natural light which is perfect for photographs. During the ceremony they had a beautiful reading. It was so emotional and such a personal service. As it was raining after their ceremony we did Becky & James’ confetti shot inside the ceremony room as they exited. This was wonderful and created such a joyful atmosphere.

THE RECEPTION

The reception was in a marquee at the venue. They chose Iscoyd Park because it’s so cosy and relaxed and they just fell in love with it. It was a winter wedding, which they’d made super cosy with the use of the colour red. I love shooting Iscoyd Park weddings because the grounds are absolutely amazing. I’m a recommended supplier for Iscoyd and I always jump at the chance of getting to shoot there.

They had drinks and canapes in the afternoon, and a pizza truck in the evening. I loved Becky & James’ first dance, they didn’t just stick to one spot on the dance floor, they filled the entire floor with their moves. They decorated the venue with wintery decor and lots of greenery, because it worked so well with the time of year.

For dinner they had a slap up meal, which was absolutely delicious. The first dance involved the wedding party getting on the dancefloor to get the dancing going, and they finished off the evening with a sparkler exit.

The funniest part of the day was the dancing, because the moves were hilariously bad. I love a full dance floor at a wedding, it’s the time where I always get the funniest photographs.

THE COUPLE

Becky wore a Kenneth Winston dress and James wore a Samuel Windsor Tweed Suit and they looked so dapper. Becky’s flowers were gorgeous and wild and James’s suit was so unusual, I loved it.

Becky and James’s wedding was so much fun and so laid back. Here’s their stunning wedding!

Pendrell Hall is a gorgeous wedding venue on the outskirts of Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Beth and Sam chose to get married here back in February, it was my first wedding of 2018 and I’m so please I kicked it off with these two! Pendrell Hall is a great choice for a wedding venue at any time of the year, but it’s especially brilliant for a winter wedding like Beth and Sam’s. When I arrived at the venue, as is typical in Britain in winter (or any time of year for that matter), it was rainy and pretty dull outside, however from the inside of Pendrell Hall you wouldn’t be able to tell. Not only is the inside lovely and bright, with big windows everywhere you look (which is very important for photographers!), the atmosphere was also so full of joy! Beth was practically radiating happiness during bridal prep, with a few happy tears thrown in there for good measure, especially when she saw her Grandad after getting into her wedding dress.

The rain was very on and off for much of Beth and Sam’s day, this meant we had to keep nipping in and out between showers! We did manage to get their confetti shot done outside which I was really pleased about, I love confetti and it’s always a shame if it gets rained off so I was really determined to do one! The rain held off long enough for us to get some couple portraits outside too. The grounds of Pendrell Hall are beautiful, there’s so much to explore, I think I could shoot her 50 times and still not use every area they have to offer! These two were really lovely together during their couple portraits, I already knew they would be having done an engagement shoot with them back in Autumn. Doing the engagement shoot meant they were already really relaxed around me and knew what to expect when I started shooting them.

I got a bit out of my comfort zone for a couple of outdoor shots after dark. I generally don’t shoot much in the dark as I’m not a fan of off camera flash, it doesn’t really suit my style of photography. I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could get a couple portrait outside after dark with only the use of available light. Having a wander around Pendrell Hall’s grounds I came across an outdoor lamp that was surrounded by trees. I’m always really honest with my couples when I get an idea for a shot that I think may or may not work, I just tell them, this might look terrible, but we’ll try it! This is often how I get some of my favourite images! I was really pleased with how this image turned out and I’m going to try challenging myself more this year with shooting after dark, especially with my autumn and winter weddings I have later this year!pendrell hallpendrell hallpendrell hall

 

Nikki & Del got married at Henlle Park Golf Club back in July. These two had been together over 10 years and they were finally tying the knot! They had their daughter as one of their bridesmaids which was so lovely. I love shooting weddings where couples already have children together, it’s not just a celebration for the couple, it’s a celebration for them as a family.

I loved shooting their couple portraits in the grounds of Henlle Park Golf Club, these two obviously have some wonderful chemistry together which really came across in their images. Couples that can laugh easily together are my favourites!

Thank you so much Nikki & Del for having me there to photograph your big day!
