Michaela & Michael: Sunset Wedding at Palm Beach Hotel Larnaca, Cyprus

The end of August brought along a trip to Cyprus for Michaela & Michael’s destination wedding in Larnaca in Cyprus.. very exciting stuff! It’s a huge honour to be asked work in another country and their day was no exception.

The Palm Beach Hotel was the setting for their day, dressed in the vibrant colours of the hotel garden’s greenery and flowers against the bright blue sky. They chose to say their vows in a sunset beachside ceremony in the presence of their closest friends and family. I just loved the way Michaela looked at Michael as she walked down the aisle – absolutely beaming!

After the ceremony we rushed off (thank you guys!) to grab some portraits in that beautiful light in the precious few minutes before sunset, under the pink hued bougainvillea that surrounded the hotel gardens.. before heading to the beach to watch the sky change as the sun set.

Huge love to you both for the joy of travelling to Cyprus to photograph your beautiful day. It was an honour and a privilege!

We’ve just had the chance to sit down together and look through all the photos together and we’re so, SO in love! I can’t put into words how grateful we are, or how much we adore them. But we just wanted to say from the bottom of our hearts how thankful we are you were there to capture it all!
— Michaela & Michael

Beth & Shane: Rustic Wedding at The Barns at Hunsbury Hill, Northampton

If I had to choose one wedding that made me tear up the most it would probably be this one! Together since they were at school, Beth & Shane got married on a sunny August after 10 years together.

Their day stated with a lovely church ceremony in Great Doddington, with tears before it even began as beautiful Beth walked down the aisle, wowing in her Ellis Bridals dress. The photo of them both tearing up as she arrived at the end of the aisle has got to be one of my favourites of the whole year! 

I love how detail-driven Beth was in planning her wedding décor – she is a girl after my own heart! With a mix of DIY items and hire from my favourite lady Gemma at The White Emporium, the Barns at Hunsbury Hill was filled with rustic gorgeousness from top to toe. And my favourite bit: space hoppers on the lawn!

Their wedding breakfast was a classic english roast with a twist: friends and family carving it themselves at the tables, which was an absolute hit with their guests. 

That evening we were treated to an incredible golden hour before the sun set and their first dance began. They surprised their parents by playing their first dance songs, which was a really lovely touch that I’ve never seen before in all the weddings I’ve photographed!

Ceremony Venue: St Nicholas, Great Doddington
Reception Venue: The Barns at Hunsbury Hill
Venue Style & Hire: The White Emporium
Dress: Ellis Bridals from Fairytale Weddings
Shoes: Rachel Simpson
Suit: Suitors

Our wedding day was genuinely the best day of our lives and being able to re-live it through the photos has been amazing. It was honestly an absolute pleasure to have you as our wedding photographer - it was simply one of the best decisions we made and we are over the moon with the photos! So thank you again, you really are such a talented lady.

Abby & Joseph: London Wedding at St Michael's Church, Belgravia

Abby & Joseph’s wedding day was a little different as they held their entire wedding in the church from start to finish.. how lovely! Everyone helped out turning the room around after their ceremony into a literature themed wedding reception with the best buffet food I think I’ve ever eaten!

As Abby, her girls and I headed to the ceremony we walked past the perfectly colour coordinated Peggy Porschen store.. we couldn’t resist getting a pic in front of the colourful shopfront. It’s no wonder it’s super popular with bloggers!

Their ceremony was lovely, featuring music and sermons by their friends, and afterwards we took the opportunity to take their portraits on the beautiful streets of Belgravia with its beautiful textures and architecture as the sun set. Thank you guys so much for having me along - we had so much fun!

Venue: St Michael’s Church, Belgravia
Dress: Stella York
Suit: Ted Baker
Hair & Makeup: Calysta London
Band: Jazz Bomb

Thank you so much for these incredible photos, they are absolutely wonderful. You’ve captured the day more beautifully than we could have imagined - looking at the photos last night almost made us feel like we were reliving the whole thing, and seeing bits we’d missed on the day! Thank you also for capturing all the small details that we and our family and friends worked so hard to put together - it’s so special to have them up close and on record.

Lizzy & John: Summer Marquee Wedding at Dunstall Lodge Farm

If I had to describe Lizzy & John’s day in three words I’d simply have to say: so much joy. I felt so welcomed into her parents home in the morning and their entire day was non-stop fun from start to finish. 

Lizzie’s bridal look was beautiful with her lace dress and bouquet of greenery, pink and peach, but added a little funky edge with a gorgeous headpiece and awesome silver cowboy boots!

They held their wedding at a family friends’ farm, with their ceremony taking place in the courtyard, officiated by the lovely Jo at My Perfect Ceremony under an arch of greenery. Lizzy beamed as she walked down the aisle with her dad, and her and John’s ridiculously cute son made an excellent ring bearer! There wasn’t a dry eye as her two bridesmaids gave readings, and they left under a tunnel of confetti with bubbles for the kids. So much fun!

Everyone enjoyed a buffet wedding breakfast surrounded by rustic decoration of pompoms, jam jar flowers and fairy lights. The best part about the farm location of their day was the almost unlimited selection of backdrops to shoot! We couldn’t resist getting some pictures with a tractor, and of course on the hay bales. We were lucky enough to get a gorgeous golden hour before sunset, and we sat in the hay taking photographs.

Venue: Dunstall Lodge Farm
Celebrant: My Perfect Ceremony
Hair & Makeup: Sarah Harrison
Dress: Jasmine Bridal
Flowers: Mrs Umbels

Cat is just amazing! Such a lovely lady and so talented! Right from the first point of contact to receiving our beautiful photos she has been brilliant. We were just blown away with the quality of the pictures and really felt like we could have been in a magazine!

Laura & Ryan: Marquee Wedding at Chiddingstone Castle, Kent

I’m always so honoured when someone recommends me to a future bride & groom.. but when that someone is a photographer even more so! Bride Laura’s sister Jodie is a photographer, so to have her recommend me meant a great deal.

First things first, how gorgeous is Laura’s Jenny Packham dress?! I’m just obsessed with the elegant embellishment on the shoulders and waist, and she looked like a Grecian goddess. She arrived at the ceremony in her dad’s teal hot rod - one of the most unique wedding cars I’ve ever seen in it’s stunning bright turquoise colour!

Although rain moved their ceremony from outside by the orangery to inside the castle, it didn’t stop them from having a wonderful ceremony (with a few tears from friends and family thrown in for good measure!)

Luckily the rain held off long enough for the all-important confetti shot. Laura asked me what they needed to do to get a great confetti shot and my advice is always the same.. buy lots and lots of it and we'll organise the rest! I always recommend you just get a big basket of it so your guests can grab big handfuls.

The décor for their wedding breakfast was gold and olive green, with succulent terrariums and trailing greenery everywhere you looked. I just loved the place settings: leaves with the guests’ names written on in beautiful calligraphy.

Their evening began not with a cake cut but something a little different.. bespoke cocktails and a donut wall! I love this modern alternative to a wedding cake and the guests loved it too. We left them to dance the night away to a fantastic band back in the stunning setting of the castle, a fantastic way to end their day.

Venue: Chiddingstone Castle
Dress: Jenny Packham
Suits: Moss Bros
Flowers: Johnny’s Little Sister Florist
Hair & makeup: Making Up The Bride
Band: Soulshine

Thank you so much, we both absolutely love these and it made me cry with happiness looking through them just now! Reliving all the lovely memories from the day, you’ve captured these beautifully. We’ve sent some on to close family and friends already and they love them too, and I’ve already updated my Facebook pic!
