A little taster shot of the wedding I shot with Katy Lunsford Photography at Alnwick garden, Northumbria last Saturday. We had beautiful weather, beautiful surroundings and some wonderful guests...the speeches were just gorgeous and the love between these two was electric...thanks Marc & Charlotte for letting me a part of such a beautiful day! 
(More photos coming soon!)

David & Rachel's pre-wedding shoot...

So, how much fun can you have in a smelly, muddy old warehouse where the ceiling is pretty much collapsing on your head, a few big tubs of paint and a gorgeous, loved up couple?! If you have a look at these pre-wedding shots below you'll see! 

Dave and Rachel have some fab bright colours in their wedding theme, so decided to keep it running through the pre-wedding photos (and they've used one of the images as their invite, but I'm not going to reveal which one yet!!), so they came armed with big bright lollies and paint and just went crazy.. They were freezing and covered by the end of it, but we definitely got some original, and, I think, amazing shots! I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as we enjoyed shooting them!

 I should have known this would all go downhill..cheeky!

 Some would say this is their best angle ;)

These gorgeous ceramic hearts are a little keep sake they both carry around to remind them of each other (although naughty David is on his second one!!) We all wanted to get these photographed, and kept the bright colour theme going with the nails!

These shots below show the state of the building, but the dirtier the better in the world of photography!

I love trying these different shots and think David looks great as a little toy groom!

There was a hole in the wall which framed these 2 perfectly... 

Then the fun really began!!!

I'm very much looking forward to this wedding, a day filled with colour and fun! x

Marc & Charlotte pre-wedding shoot..part 2!!

From the moment I started chatting to Charlotte via email I knew we'd all get on, and I wasn't wrong! This is such a wonderful couple who are giddy with excitement about their wedding...NEXT WEEKEND!! I can't quite believe it's so soon, and am so happy for them! Katy Lunsford and I will be travelling up to Northumberland to the gorgeous Alnwick Garden which has so many exciting places to photograph, I just hope we get enough time to capture all we want to!!

We started the shoot on the beautiful carousel at Tatton Park in Manchester, then moved around to a gorgeous battered set of gates...anyone who knows me as a photographer, knows the more aged looking my backdrop, the happier I am! 

This is how easy these guys are to photograph, my first direction was 'do what comes naturally' and she flung her arms around him...made me smile from ear to ear!!

(I love to experiment with more abstract poses, but I don't know what my mum would think of chopping their heads off!!!)

...posing over and it was back to cuddles! I thoroughly enjoyed our time together Marc & Charlotte, and am just too excited about sharing your day with you next week!!! xx
