Here's where I retell the story of a wedding in highlights or a photo shoot. Time to make a cuppa and have a scroll...thanks for stopping by! You do not have permission to use these images here. Just get in touch via the contact tab.
Karen and Mark are two of the most fun loving people you could ever meet. Their pre wedding shoot had lots of laughs and giggles and I was sure I knew just how their wedding day was going to be. Karen chose a grecian style dress which she looked amazing in. The flowers were all multicoloured as were the grooms tie, this matched the vibrant colours of the wildflowers and butterflies at their venie. It was a beautiful marriage ceremony, by the groom's father, who is a minister, so amazingly touching to be married by your DAD! I always love capturing those ceremony expressions, but these ones between the groom, bride and minister mean so much more here. Then it was off on the hottest and longest day of the year in the cutest white open top Beetle, to the fantastic Butterfly World Project in St Albans for the party. The bridesmaids all went into a white campervan for the journey too. I loved photographing this wedding, the team at Butterfly world were amazing and everyone was so friendly and happy- guys you deserve every happiness you truly are made for each other! Please take a look at their lovely day.
At this amazing cermony the groom's own father who is a minister actual married the couple!
It was the hottest day, but the cool garden room and outside area and cold drinks were very welcome.
The staff at Butterfly world let the bride and groom have their own private little tour of both the butterfly and the insect house.
So I said they were fun, yes they went down the slide in the childrens play area and both rode on the rodeo!

Marta and Cliff had a chic, intimate and unique wedding at Hotel Bohema, a most beautiful Art Deco hotel in Bydgoszcz. There were lots of photo adventures as I joined them in the 1920s car and jaunted around the brides home city. Bydgoszcz (I pronounce that Bid-gosh-shht) is a beautiful place. I cannot tell you how honoured I felt when Marta asked which dates I was available and would I travel to Poland! She is Polish, Cliff is English and they'd decided they wanted it in her home town. I fell in love with Bydgoszcz as much as I did this couple. They are laid back, positive people, kind, thoughtful and so right for each other. Martas short, chic dress was made by Karolina Piech and teamed with strappy Jimmy Choos. I thought she looked like Audrey Hepburn, and a few other people agreed. After a legal ceremony for just immediate family it was back to the Hotel Bohema for a drinks reception and meal. It was an incredibly fun day, the photos and time around the city was a big part of what the couple wanted. Its a long blog post and I had to leave so many great parts out, but Id love you to take a look and feel free to leave me a comment at the end. This is just a selection to retell the day, friends and family can obtain the password to the online gallery from the bride. So please take a look at what was an incredibly happy day for them, and for me.
The gorgeous car owned by the hotel which the couple (and me) got to travel around in is a delightful Citroën Traction Avant.
We went via the amazing 1920s Citroen back to Hotel Boheme for a reception welcome in their gardens.
Marta and Cliff locked a padlock to the bridge and threw their keys in the river...
There were alot of bubbles! They always say that they both 'live in their bubble', hence they love them so much!
The amazing hotel has a beautiful rooftop, here the bride and groom really did feel on top of the world!
The chef made a dessert with fresh fruit, cream and liquid nitrogen.
Then he made some bite sized 'frozen' pieces like little mouthfulls of meringue, for each guest to pop in whole! COLD!
