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.
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.
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!).
