Emily and Adam - WOW you know how to plan and enjoy a wedding...so much so that the two day celebration was just pure joy for me to photograph. You deserve every happiness together, such a creative and thoughtful couple. Emily told me "The most important thing to us was to convey a personality in our wedding. We’d like to think that we did this by expressing our characters, our interests and the adventures we’re going to have in how we chose to do things. In honesty, everything just fell together because we made a rule of only doing things we REALLY wanted to....so really the best way to describe our theme is to say it was totally ‘us’!"
Part two....at the amazing British School's Museum, Hitchin, a fabulous map inspired totally diy wedding, that was just a joy to be at.
Emily said "We both love exploring new places, and Adam has done a great deal of travelling. I have a love for the Winnie the Pooh quote “As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen” too, and the idea that our marriage will be a grand adventure! " They are a very talented pair! I suggest you go and make another cup of tea while you scroll through stage 2 of their wedding...
Emily's advice for future brides: Dismiss everything you know about weddings and start from scratch with precisely what is important to you. The duty of care to our guests was really important to us, and so trying to make everyone happy was something we strived for. But at the end of the day, you can’t please everyone and you should do things the way you want to.... if that means dispensing with traditions everyone takes for granted and thinks you’re weird for cutting out, well, let them have them at their wedding!
Emily said "Everyone always says to spend as much as you can on a photographer, but before we met Sharon through a friend and she agreed to take our engagement photos, we’d not really considered splashing out on photography. Once we saw the images she took though and had such a great time with her, we knew it really was something that was important to us and we booked her (she was the second supplier we booked, after the ice cream van and before we’d even confirmed the venue!). At the time it seemed like quite a financial commitment, but looking back now it was a brilliant decision! The amount of hours, hard graft and love Sharon poured into our wedding still amazes us, and we couldn’t be more delighted that we chose her. "
