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!

Hetty & Josh: Summer Garden Marquee Wedding

There is something particularly special and heartfelt about a wedding held in the garden at home, and that is exactly what Hetty & Josh chose for their sunny June wedding day, held in the garden of Josh’s parents.

Hetty looked stunning in her lace dress by Sincerity Bridal and flowing blonde curls. She carried a bouquet of white peonies, and pink and white roses by Daisy Ellen and walked down the aisle to a string quartet. They said their vows in the marquee in front of the fountain, before heading out greeted by their gorgeous little dog Harley (have I ever said how much I LOVE dogs at weddings?!)

The garden had a beautiful hedge of lavender, sprinkled with fairy lights which made for the perfect backdrop for their portraits, and as we shot the sun shone through the trees. It was gorgeous! They treated their guests to one of the best wedding bands I’ve ever seen and an awesome saxophonist for the evening’s entertainment, and we left them to boogie the night away. Congratulations you two!

Wedding Planner: Oasis Events
Bride's Dress: Sincerity Bridal from Shades of White
Bride's Shoes: LK Bennett
Flowers: Daisy Ellen
Hair: Genesis Hair Co
Cake: Seventh Heaven
Band: The Faithettes
Saxophonist: Dan Blaax

“Wow! Thank you so much for these amazing pictures, I feel like you captured every second of our special day. I’m going to have so much enjoyment looking through them all (numerous times!!) It was such a perfect day!

You were both so great on the day, really helpful with guiding us through and you managed to get all these photos without being in the way at all! Just brilliant. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone I know getting married in the future!”

Grace & Mark: Flitwick Church & Garden Marquee Wedding

I think Grace & Mark's wedding day wins the award for hottest of the year - we were blessed with blinding sunshine from start to finish. Lots of suncream needed!

Their day was a beautiful celebration of family and friends, with the gorgeous blue and purple hued bouquets and arrangements made by a friend, the Rolls Royce wedding car owned and chauffeured by a family friend and of course, their sunny celebrations set in a marquee at Grace's parents' beautiful home. Everybody came together to create Grace & Mark's wedding day with them, and every little thing was done with love as a result.

Grace & Mark, it was a huge honour to be asked to capture and be a part of your big day. We wish you every happiness for the future!


"Where do I even begin?  Firstly, thank you for the wonderful photographs. We have already been flicking through and sharing some with out nearest and dearest. They have made us laugh and cry (well, me mainly, but I'm sure he felt it inside!).

On the day of the wedding, we thought you both were exceptional. You were enthusiastic, non-intrusive and captured some wonderful spontaneous moments. You got that balance of making sure the best photos got taken whilst letting the wedding day simply flow.

Mark and I felt we had a wonderful wedding and a cracking reception, and you captured that beautifully. We cannot thank you enough. We now just need to decide on our favourite photographs, which will not be an easy task! Thank you, thank you!" - Grace & Mark
