Taylor and Matt
Oh my goodness! This couple and little Bella are freaking awesome! An adventure to Torquay, Races on the beach, throwing pebbles in the sea and having a little sing song. We had the best time. Nothing was awkward or forced. We connected right away and still do as if we have known each other for ever! These three lovely people will always have a place in my heart and I think I have found new festival bud's!
When Taylor first got in touch to book a session with me. Naturally I had a few important questions to ask...
How did you meet?
I'd like to say we met in a really awesome way, but it was through Plenty of Fish... After a few days of texting we met at a local pub to have a quiet whiskey and get to know one another. 6 hours later we were still partying as if we had known eachother forever & the rest is history. I literally met my other half that day, my best friend, my festival buddy, my band member - we have been inseparable ever since!
Your proposal story...
It was Christmas 2014 and we had gone up to London with my parents and Matts daughter (my stepdaughter, Bella) After a crazy day exploring London, battling hamleys at Christmas and failing at Ice Skating, we went into winter wonderland and it was magical. I've never been a fan of Christmas, and have always gone abroad or secluded myself from it. Matt had always said he wanted me to experience a proper christmas, a memorable one, and that he did! Now Matt and I are not the most serious of couples, we laugh a lot and don't take things too seriously. We had never talked about marriage and it was definitely not something I expected; so when he got down on one knee in the middle of winter wonderland, i turned and saw my mum with her camera out and little Bella staring up at me with the biggest grin I was speechless, literally! He read me the most beautiful letter and seeing this serious, emotionally side to him is something I will treasure forever. I am so excited to marry my bestie & would love for you to be part of our journey x

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!
If you are a couple in love and you connected with the photographs above, AWESOME!
Let's hit the beach so that you can have prints like these (of your own beautiful memories) that you can keep close to your heart for ever and more!
