Linthwaite House wedding / the farmer wants a wife

Another gorgeous Linthwaite House wedding! I met Yvette a few times leading up to the wedding. I didn’t meet Andrew until the wedding day itself. After he said hello he explained to me that he had a bit of purple on his hand because he’d been treating a tup for foot rot earlier in the morning and the spray you use is purple.  This of course was music to my ears being a newbie shepherd myself.  We talked a bit about sheep and farming and I took some pictures whilst we waited for his beautiful Yvette to arrive.  One of the best bits of the day for me was Andrew’s speech.. “I’ve never seen our lass look so smart”  he then went on to describe her as a “top penner” which means she’d achieve a good price at auction! Yvette was very beautiful in her Lusan Mandongus dress and Emmy shoes (I’ve always had a crush on Emmy bridal shoes) but it was her smile that did it. She smiled and laughed all day and looked so happy.  Laura from Greenwheat Flowers in Penrith styled the church and Linthwaite House in a country theme with milk churns and an old bicycle. It was perfect for a Lake District wedding and of course two farmers.

White Closet wedding – Eve and Blaine at the Willow Moorings

Eve is one of the co-owners of The White Closet in West Didsbury and now Liverpool. I’ve known her for ages as we have worked together on bridal shoots although I met her for the first time when I bought my own Claire Pettibone wedding dress from her. So the White Closet wedding was eagerly anticipated! I knew it would be amazing because Eve is amazing, she has immense style and is so lovely and full of warmth.  The wedding was held at Willow Moorings in Northamptonshire where her grandfather’s house boat is. Her mum grew up on the St. George so the location was very significant for them. Eve had two wedding dresses, a bespoke Charlie Brear for daytime and a sparkly Jenny Packham for the evening. Blaine looked so cool in his Simon Carter pink flamingo shirt and baby blue jacket. The civil marriage was held in the morning at Loughborough Town Hall with close family. Then they headed off to Willow Moorings where they had a blessing and were joined by all of their friends and family.  The styling was very festival-like, natural, easy and outside so fortunately we were blessed with good weather. It was an absolute joy to be part of.

Destination Africa – Wedding Photography

Destination wedding photography in Africa to photograph Elliot and Metrine’s wedding in Kenya.

Imagine planning your wedding, figuring out your guest list and then having to cater and plan for most of the town turning up. This is a glimpse of Elliot and Metrine’s African wedding and approximately 500 guests, including a couple of bus loads of school children. It was a wonderful, joyful, crazy, colourful Kenyan day of dancing, singing and eating cake. The day is a bit different to our weddings, the groomsmen and family travel to the bride to collect her and they then travel in convoy to the ceremony. The groom and his men dance in together and then one by one the groomsmen collect a bridesmaid and they dance in ahead of the bride and both parents. After the ceremony it’s pretty much dancing all day. Also white men can’t dance (although the ginger haired groomsman nailed it!)

A Wedding at Browsholme Hall

When it comes to styling and details Charlotte left no stone unturned. She thought of everything and created such a beautiful wedding at Browsholme Hall. The morning started out with James and his boys and the usual tie tying shenanigans! Lucy Pearson was with the girls doing hair and make-up and is always such a lovely calming influence. Duke, the beautiful black Lab stole my heart immediately, he even had his own tweed waistcoat and bow tie (much to James’s dismay!)  Jane from Flower Design worked her floral magic decorating the church, Browsholme Hall and creating the bouquets. It was a gorgeous, gorgeous wedding and I worked with many of my favourite people (credits below). Charlotte and Duke have also been featured on the cover of Bride Magazine.

A wedding at Browsholme Hall Tithe Barn

I photographed the very first wedding at Browsholme Hall Tithe Barn a few years ago and it’s always lovely to go back. Browsholme Hall is one of the venues I work at most throughout the year. Chris, his dad and groomsmen stayed at Browsholme Hall’s cottage the night before and the girls all stayed at his parent’s house in Lancashire. At the very end of the ceremony Bel picked up her violin, Chris picked up whatever those things are  you hit a glockenspiel with and they played themselves out. Bel was magical, Chris was funny! Kerry Baker was with us on hair and make-up for the whole day, she’s always great fun to work with. Both families felt like one family, there was such a huge amount of warmth and love and it was a pleasure to photograph. Here are some of my favourites.
