What a Rocking wedding at the (absolutely charming) Escot House! I loved everything about this day! To name just a few of these things...
The Ceremony in a old library (proper beauty and the beast vibes) The subtle Day of the Dead theme, Chimichangas, chocolate skulls, cats, cats everywhere (They come complimentary with the venue), live music, temporary tattoo's, super old books, kick ass shoes, A bride in a leather jacket and a goom with a rather exquisite beard.
Most of all though. I love that leather jacketed bride and that bearded groom.
Kaz and Danny! This couple are truly wonderful. We first met at Dawlish Warren for a Maternity session In September 2015. I was so excited for them as they had recently gotten engaged and were pregnant with their little lady. They were building a house together. I feel so honoured to know Kaz and Danny. To have been able to stay in touch after we first met (thank you social media) To witness their journey, see photos of Robyn when she came into the world and see their home coming together. Then the topping on the cake (awful wedding pun intended) to be hired to photograph their wedding! (yes, of course, I did one of my embarrassing dad happy dances. A really big one)
The love that they clearly have for each other, their little babe Robyn and their family and friends is completely undeniable and they are not afraid to show it. My face really ached from smiling all day. Witnessing so much love. Love for people and love for living life!
The day time was about family, with a super intimate ceremony and sit down (mexican) meal. Catching up and laughing hard around one long table. The night was a huge party with drinks flowing, moves throwing, live metal and tons of friends. What a perfect combination.
Thank you Kaz and Danny, for having me, for the chimichanga, the good music, laughs and for treating me as one of the family for a day. Your family welcomed me too, which means the world. Thank you so much.

Ever wondered what it would look like to run off and elope in Cornwall? Well here ya go! Lisa and Paul did just that and it was absolute perfection. Warning - this post will make you want to get married at The Cow shed in Cornwall (even if you are already married) and head to the beach for a paddle.
Lealah and Adam had a super fun wedding day with a ceremony at Ocean Studios, Plymouth with its industrial and rustic charm. Followed by tons of confetti and a boat trip along the sound (with a pasty). Docking at Mount Edgcumbe for their reception at The Orangery. With an epic lego table plan and cake topper, a yummy BBQ, emotional speeches, games of frisbee on the lawn, cutting the (cheese) cake and foot stomping to the live band.
Kelly and Andy had a wonderful wedding at The Belmont Hotel In Leicester. I’m always soooooooo flattered when couples ask me to travel for them, because they connect with me and my work. They could have picked someone local but chose me and I’m so glad they did. I would have travelled even further for this lovely pair!
Christina and Lee had an absolutely amazing and ridiculously fun and laid back, festival style wedding day at Gulliford Farm. I have been to tons of weddings and I can say that they don’t get more laid back than this. It was like going to a festival with all of your fave friends and fam. With yummy street food, an inclusive playlist (that guests could add to) and an awesome live rock band, a bouncy castle, bucking sheep, giant bubbles, booze, glitter station, magician, bonfire and no dress code.
Ruth and Leigh had a wonderful windy wedding day at Whitsand Bay Fort! I love how versatile this venue is. The staff at Whitsand along with the great mindset of Ruth and Leigh are proof that even if you have horrible weather on your wedding day, you can still have a ton of fun.
Have you ever wondered what wedding photos at Restronguet Barton (Cornwall) would look like? Well… Here you go!
I do love a good trek up the country for the right wedding and the right couple. Kathy and Luke's wedding at All saints church in Newborough and reception at the magnificent Swinfen Hall Hotel in Lichfield (nearish to Birmingham) was totally the right wedding, Kathy and Luke, totally the right couple.
This wedding kicked some serious bottom! There were so many amazing moments including the Bride and Bridesmaids arriving to the ceremony on the back Harley Davidson Motorcycles, a lovely outdoor ceremony with an actual tying of the knot and lots of happy tears, no table plan, yummy food, emotional and hilarious speeches and dancing the night away in the wonderful Big Chief Tipis to the upbeat live band. Perfect Day!
I'm so excited to share Becky and Chris's Epic and fun wedding at Bridwell Park Estate. What a day! Sunshine, home grown flowers, so much confetti, over 100 people attempting "the floss" for a group photo, some of the best food and live music I have ever enjoyed at a wedding, smoke bombs, hilarious speeches, a crazy dance floor and a seriously epic bouquet toss (you'll see) Becky and Chris are one of the most laid back and fun couples I have ever met and I enjoyed every second of their day.
Sometimes Two Groom’s are better than one! Jamie and César had an amazing and super sunny wedding at St Elizabeth’s House. On this day I had the chance to witness and photograph so many emotional, loving and fun moments. I think Jamie and César and their lovely families and friends have to go on record as one of the most tactile and openly affectionate bunch of people I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. It was so wonderful to see.
