Dan & Emma French Chateau wedding!

To say I was excited about this wedding in the lead up, would be an understatement...it is every wedding photographers dream to shoot weddings on location, and to be able to travel to a French Chateau, La Durantie, Lanouille, with a couple you know enjoy a good party...ideal! 

I combined this trip and brought my husband Lindsay along to assist (check out the 6th photo down as he leans out of the window to get a shot!) as it was our 10 year wedding aniversary...what's better than celebrating it in the South of France!!  It really was a fantastic few days!!

Here are some shots as the wedding party are getting ready, up until the end of the ceremony...I will be posting the rest of the day soon!

Meanwhile, the boys and guests were waiting for Emma at the beautiful St Thomas's church, Excideuil, not a trace of nerves on his face...yet!! 

I love the last moment before a bride walks into the church, those little glances to her Dad are so beautiful.

Ceremony over, the guests pose for some photos, before driving back to the Chateau for a English tea party in the back garden, followed by a good old knees up (photos to follow!!)

Congratulations Dan & Emma...an amazing weekend that we won't forget in a hurry!!

Nick & Esther pre-wedding shoot

I had a great time with Nick and Esther recently in Castlefield Manchester.  They had no idea what to expect, but after a few minutes were posing brilliantly!! This gorgeous couple work together and are getting married on the 9th of July at Woodford Church, Cheshire, then on to the Lowry Hotel, Manchester for a fab reception overlooking the water. I can't wait because I've known Esther for years now, so it'll be just wonderful seeing her walk up the aisle...such an honour to capture it too, thank-you!!


That look of love is so obvious...beautiful! 

This is their favourite, and I can see why!  

They both have many good memories of this area as Nick lives just round the corner!

Thank-you so much for including me in your wedding...I can't wait for the big day, and pray it is all you both ever dreamed it would be!
