Kelly & Sean’s Italian Garden Wedding at Homme House
I met Sean & Kelly at a lovely little vintage themed wedding fair in Much Wenlock , Shropshire. Kelly and Sean got married at Homme House in Herefordshire…basically a photographers dream to photograph…stunning sweeping staircase, enchanting gardens, the cutest summer house, beautiful interiors, period features…I could go on.
Add to this an outdoor ceremony eek! I LOVE outdoor ceremonies! getting married in summer with birds singing, fragrance of the gardens and panoramic views of the Malvern Hills, seriously whats not to love!
Sean mentioned that they had chosen me to photograph their wedding because of my nice balance of natural moments and more directed shots. I’m always striving to get this balance right for each couple…capturing all the natural moments but then working with the light and composition to create a sprinkling ‘hero shots’.
Kelly took great attention to detail with wedding decor working to an Italian Garden theme with olive leaves, fresh lemons and country garden flowers trailing the tables and twining around the staircase spokes…one of the loveliest arrangements I’ve seen.
Louise & Matts Autumn Wedding at The Fairlawns Hotel & Spa
October weddings are a bit awesome! all the colours and the darker evenings mean I can play with some lighting and create some atmospheric portraits. Louise and Matt had a lovely church wedding at St John’s Church, Heath Hayes. Then travelling in vintage style in matching baby blue VW camper and Bug to the Fairlawns Hotel & Spa.
Louise and Matt’s wedding is featured over on the brand new Fairlawns’ website too! I’m pretty excited to be listed as a recommended supplier. For more wedding photos from Louise and Matts wedding click here to take a look.
I met Jenny at the National Wedding Show held at the Birmingham NEC in October. Jenny was also called Jenny Rose and had to do a double take when she saw her name above my stand! We got chatting and realised that there were lots of odd little coincidences..we went to the same high school, Jen taught at my old primary school, we had the same name… basically we just had to work together!
Jenny and Stephen got married at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Hednesford, Staffordshire. The church is grand both inside and out. The beautiful architecture and interiors were a dream to capture romantic portraits after the ceremony. During the wedding pre-consult Stephen showed me his Grandmothers treasured wedding album… which was just beautiful! Jen mentioned that she would love a full group shot on the church steps, reminiscent of the traditional style. I love modern, natural style wedding photography but I will always take time to capture a few well curated group shots…these are the pictures that in years to come future generations look at wondering and asking who all the people were. As a guest at a wedding I once photographed put it so perfectly - ‘a wedding album is like a window into a another time’.
Jen and Ste held their wedding reception at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. The Moat House is such a great venue with stunning backdrops at every turn, be it the canal that runs at the back or the pools and tudor building.
