Ashley and Leda

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography, Portrait Photography

Most of my wedding clients find me through referrals, but Leda is one of the few that found me through my website.

In the lead up to the day, Leda also contacted me about a makeup artist which of course I referred Sali at Ms Moo Make-up.

Working with Sali on the morning of a wedding is always a joy as we team up brilliantly. Other than photographing Leda getting ready, the morning was spent photographing her two gorgeous dogs and the two small bridesmaids spinning around blowing bubbles.

We headed off to St Mary's Church in Clifton where Ashley was waiting, looking a little nervous!

The ceremony was a beautiful little traditional wedding but unfortunately as it came time for the couples portraits the clouds descended and the rain came!

As always, I'd had the foresight to check the weather and brought my umbrellas! Ashley and Leda were happy to still have their photographs done outside and they came out great, giving a lovely atmosphere and story to the images.

But, just as quickly as the rain had appeared, it lifted and we could travel to the reception with the top down on the convertible car driven by Leda's bridesmaid!

We arrived at the Canalhouse in Nottingham for the reception, which works so well as a venue!

After dinner, the speeches were gorgeously heartfelt and the first dance was beautiful.

 

All in all a wonderful day, and even though I am no longer a good weather jinx, it just shows you don't need sun to have a perfect wedding day.

The Tweet heard round the world

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography

If you've landed here on my modest little wedding photography website you've probably done so because of a recent little tweet about Victoria and Jonathan...

 

 

So I woke up on Sunday afternoon, after a little cap nap, to find Victoria had tweeted the above, and it had all started to go a little nuts. I had photographed Vic and Jonathan's wedding the week before and, as you know my love for confetti shots, I sent her the above photo as a little sneaky peek. 

A little back story, I've been friends with Victoria for years, and after a conversation a while into our friendship it turned out that we had met each other WAY before that at an Irish Dancing competition when we were both in our mid teens! We were the only two girls in our group and despite our dance teachers telling us we weren't allowed to talk to each other, we did anyway. Rebels already I know...

So, when Victoria announced her wedding I was positively jumping to photograph it! I hadn't met Jonathan but I knew Victoria enough to know it would be a fabulous day. 

And there was no disappointment whatsoever.

Anyway, that's for a different blog, we're talking about trending...

So, why did this little cute story go viral? Well, in my opinion it's a real life love story, the kind that cynics believe only happens in movies, where the main characters have this amazing "meet-cute" and go on to live happily ever after. It has nothing to do with looks and everything to do with personality and how you portray yourself online, (a point which many Mail readers could learn from...) It's a love story for the modern, social media age and with all the horrible news that has befallen 2016, a little love can travel far. 

 

And it did.

 

Yesterday, I spent 90% of it on my computer replying to emails, tweets and messages. This is the result!

 

Mashable was the first to go up

 

 

 

I read the comments... :/

BBC News

 

On top of that, AOL ran a weird little video, People Magazine have been in touch, blog enquiries and many other articles across the globe!

 

After all of this, I'd like to give a huge hug and thank you to all of my friends and family that have supported me, especially over the past couple of days. To everyone that sent me links and pictures, to my business besties that tagged me wherever they saw my image without credit and all those who are here with me during this incredible whirlwind. 

The biggest thank you obviously goes to Victoria and Jonathan though. You guys are amazing, you've made so many people believe in love again and that, in itself, should be celebrated. All my love to you both.

James and Leigh

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography, Portrait Photography

Often, when assisting Tim, his wedding clients are more likely to have traditional style weddings but in the case of James and Leigh, their style more closely matched those of my clients.

When I saw their sign saying “Geek and Half-Pint”, I knew it would be a wedding where I was in my element.

As usual, while Tim attended to the bride getting ready, I was tasked with capturing the images of the groom getting ready.

We arrived at Donnington Park Farmhouse Hotel in Derbyshire, a venue I have shot at so many times now they're used to seeing my face, and I headed up to spend some time with James as he had one of the rooms on site.

After a little while with James, a laugh and joke on while moving furniture around to get the best shot, I headed back to meet Tim and photograph the guests arriving.

As a change of pace, Tim decided to take the front of the ceremony while I shot from the back of the hall. Usually, I take point during the ceremony as my camera has a quieter shutter than Tim's although he will still remind me at every opportunity that his Nikon is better than my Canon...

After the ceremony, and dodging the light showers we managed to get the group photos and my favourite part, the confetti throwing.

James, Leigh, Tim and I all went for a wander to get the couple portraits, and as the rapeseed was out in full force, it made a beautiful yellow background for the images.

 

After dinner, the speeches were hilarious and everyone was smiling and laughing. I captured one of my favourite images of the year, James and Leigh laughing together, it just encapsulated the day perfectly.
