Laura & Darren // DIY wedding on Isle of Anglesey

In August I headed up to Wales to shoot this incredible wedding of Laura & Darren.

I met Laura through the wedding network, as the owner of the rather yummy Green Kitchen Cakes based in Nottingham – she creates beautiful custom wedding cakes and after doing a behind the scenes cake shoot together a few years back I was so excited to be asked she asked me to be their wedding photographer.

Plus what wedding photographer could turn down a wedding in a Chateau hideden away on the picturesque Isle of Anglesey with breathtaking views overlooking Snowdonia? Not me!

Their intimate wedding was truly a beautiful combination of creative skills coming together, homegrown flowers brought with them all the way from Nottingham were made into beautiful bouquets and adorned the venue. Laura made her very own 5 tier wedding cake and cake topper and Darren hand crafted their very own light up ‘Cake’ sign. Plus countless of  other handmade creative details throughout the day made this day truly special.

The Welsh weather was at its finest the day of Laura & Darren’s wedding – moody grey skies, strong winds and rain certainly made for an atmospheric day but this couple didn’t let that stop them! Crazy golf, walks in the rain, posing on the rocky beach for me – these guys were awesome to photograph.

The Alternative Album

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I  love wedding albums, it makes me more than a little sad to think of all those lovely memories sitting on a computer and it’s something I’m guilty of too.

Wedding albums are a great way to keep your photos within easy reach to re-live those happy moments, but nowadays fewer and fewer couples have a wedding album. The one main reason? They’re so darn expensive. And you’re right, they are. I only use trusted and high quality album makers, they are the best but they do come at a cost.

It pains me that so many couples miss out on a beautiful wedding album because of the cost, so after much searching and testing I’ve finally found an alternative to sit alongside the higher price albums and offer an alternative to couples who still want an awesome album. Something that incorporates fine art, editorial style design with gorgeous bold colours and most importantly at a reasonable price.

Presenting….

Heather & Stu // Fun, Urban Wedding Photography in London

How do you kick off 2016 with a bang? –  photographing a fun, urban wedding in London with these guys… Heather & Stu. It’s safe to say that within minutes of meeting these two, I LOVED them.

This is a wedding I’ll never forget, almost identical to my very own Pinterest board – I was in heaven! The lovely couple chose The Town Hall Hotel for their wedding ceremony  – a stylish venue with a winning combination of architecture and quirkiness and one of my all-time favourite places to photograph.

A quick stroll down the road afterwards, arm in arm, waving to the locals the party arrived at the wonderful Bistrotheque another choice venue – a converted warehouse with white painted walls and a slight industrial feel to embrace the city life.

This beautiful intimate wedding was absolutely made by Heather & Stu’s friends – a crazy bunch of lovely people who welcomed me into their day with open arms. I could go on to describe every detail of the wedding, from the awesome shoes to the gold painted table animal favours. Instead I’ll let the photos do the talking…
