Sarah & Nick: A Destination DIY Vermont Wedding in my Mama's Garden (with so so much love)

I've had some AMAZING couples and have fallen in love with this incredible job all over again but this particular wedding is so dear to me because it is the wedding of my extraordinary big sister Sarah to the love of her life Nick, and took place in the back garden of my family home in Vermont.

Jenna & Kristian: A Love Letter to Manchester & a Victoria Warehouse Industrial Chic Wedding

Jenna & Kristian: A Love Letter to Manchester & a Victoria Warehouse Industrial Chic Wedding

Sometimes a wedding venue comes along and it takes your freaking breath away with the scope and the potential to be extraordinary.  Victoria Warehouse, just over the bridge in Salford, first hooked me when I was lucky enough to use the space for a styled shoot in collaboration with One Stylish Day (you can check that out here).  I was so so eager to have the chance to shoot a real wedding there so imagine how thrilled I was when the WONDERFUL Jenna & Kris got in touch with me about their upcoming wedding.  Their plan was to have the whole day there, to really show off and celebrate this industrial Manchester gem of a venue and to throw a big silly party with all of their friends and family.

Claire & Michael: An Intimate Family-Filled Buxton Pavilion Wedding

Claire & Michael: An Intimate Family-Filled Buxton Pavilion Wedding

The WONDERFULLY sweet Claire & Michael got in touch with me just 7 WEEKS before their wedding day after booking (then cancelling) the big wedding next spring. Instead these two lovebirds opted for a VERY intimate (we're talking 20 people!) family-focused ceremony on the bandstand of the beautifully vintage Buxton Pavilion Gardens, just on the edge of the Peak District.  With a simple hearfelt civil ceremony and just those closest to them present, there wasn't a dry eye in sight (including my own!).

Naomi & Jonathan: An Alderley Edge Engagement Shoot

Naomi & her fiance Jonathan met me on a sunny Sunday morning in August ahead of their upcoming (this Friday in fact!) Owen House Wedding Barn wedding.  We had met briefly last year at the lovely Ellie & Rick's Parsonage Gardens wedding party and I was so so excited when they got in touch to book me for their own wedding! Both Naomi & Jonathan work in the beauty industry (they own a GORGEOUS salon in Holmes Chapel that you can check out HERE ) and I knew that with their creative background we'd get on so so well.

Philippa & Kallum: A Saddleworth Hotel Wedding

With a cake cutting to start off the hilarious and very moving speeches (including a full set of props by Pippa's dad!) the guests were then entertained by the awesome Magic Kay's sleight of hand and tunes by the soulful Johnny Walker, setting up an evening full of so much laughter and dancing and silliness - Pippa and Kallum and I even managed to escape to the games room for a quick game of billiards (turns out our bride was a bit of a Shark!)

Clare & Mark: A Ramsbottom Civic Hall Wedding

Clare & Mark: A Ramsbottom Civic Hall Wedding

One of the biggest things that I tell my couples when we meet up is to enjoy the day, not to get super wrapped up in little details but to HAVE FUN and just treat it as they would any other awesome party filled with their most favourite people in the world.  After all, the most vivid memories they will have of the day will be how they felt: the excitement and anticipation and sheer JOY above all else.
