Fiona and Paul chose Shortmead House in Bedfordshire for their Wedding Celebration party. Fiona looked amazing in a proper vintage, very special, 1970 wedding dress, it was her mother's dress for her wedding day. They had already had the legal bit of their wedding in St Lucia but wanted to celebrate and share their day with all their family and friends. There were lots of games to play, a pool, a great children's entertainer, a beautiful pretty marquee with pink and green details, hand stamped doilies for name places and lots of gorgeous pink hydrangas. Their two adorable children, Freya and Harrison also enjoyed the party and seeing all their family who had come such a long way. With Fiona being Scottish, little Harrison donned a sweet little kilt with converse shoes for the occasion! They had a relaxed and lovely celebration. When it got dark, I entertained children and adults that wanted to join in, on some fun light painting that they did themselves. Big congratulations to Fiona and Paul, it was amazing to share your lovely day.

Fiona looked stunning in the dress her mother wore, such a lovely and special thing to do, and it fitted perfectly, no alterations needed!

The speeches were funny, moving, heartbreaking and heartfelt. Various points in the day we remember those who we would have love to have been present, but speeches are a time when things everyone is feeling are mentioned and remembered. Fiona and her brother gave lovely speeches in addition to Paul and the best man. I cried behind my camera but carried on capturing these precious moments.

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. "

Scarlet and Matthew are the most amazing couple. This wedding is everything marriage should be.  Its a celebration and beautiful example of their love for each other and their friends and family, their taste in Modernist architecture, and skill at design and crafting .  It resulted in a most colourful and unique day, charged with love and underpinned with support and grattidude and DISCO!  They finish each other's sentences and start each other's trains of thought. They share a love of adventure & a large record collection. They sang "God only knows" by the beach boys and "Fantasy by Earth wind and fire in place of hymns. Gazing at each other meaning every god damn word. They spent near on three years searching for their wedding venue. The Meeting House at Sussex University was designed by Sir Basil Spence in the sixties -The coloured windows in the upper floor chapel were the inspiration for artwork used in the wedding invitation and was incorporated  throughout the rest of their details. They are massive crafters and produced interesting things that looked as if they couldn't possibly be home-made. There were over 100 rosettes for guests to be adorned with, fixed to an oak tree outside venue each having a favourite love song lyrics on.  Scarlet wore a stunning silky gown and her friend made her a show stopping feather cape. There was an amazing ceiling of 500 balloons and lots of other multi coloured bits nodding to the coloured venue. The day was charged with love, Ive never witnessed anything like it. Im glad  I had Holly Deacon, second shooting, JUST so that we could share the amazing experience. They couldnt wait to be married. They made an AMAZING cool as hell mix tape that they gave every guest that lasted exactly 1hr,11 minutes and 1 second. signifying that they are now truly "as one" All love songs mixed together coolest thing Ive seen given. So sit back, pour a gin and tonic and if you were lucky enough to be there, enjoy and if you werent, this is how to get married.

South farm in Summer, sun streaming through the packed gardens, a family of ducklings on the pond. Guests all excited about sleeping in the gypsy caravans or camping on site...everyone smiling. Hayley was a beautiful bride, she beamed as she showed me her dress, her shoes, her flowers. She was thinking of other people all the time, getting her nana a slot with the make up artist and hair dresser too, I could tell she enjoyed making other people happy.  She really had the day she dreamed of and getting stuck to enjoying it came easy. When I arrived on the morning of the wedding, she was with her mum, Dad, sister, sister's boyfriend and nan, all decorating the venue how she wanted. It made me smile that she asked me where I thought some extra decoration would look good.  Each visit to South Farm I like to make each set of photos special to that couple. I look at these and really feel they sum up their day. A very small close family ceremony, followed by lots of mingling and an afternoon with everyone else arriving, then a great South Farm meal. It was so relaxed and I personally had the most time ever with the couple, which is a reflection you will see below in just how many photos of them there are here. A couple of guests were late arriving, so as the wedding party were all ready, this gave me extra time to take photos of Hayley, her lovely sister and bridesmaid Emma, and their Dad 'Papa Smurf' who was the proudest man on this day! The registrars were the lovliest, such great words, it was all very touching. Hayley and Brett loved their day, their vows, their meal, the speeches, their party. Just how a wedding should be. No rules, just do what you feel is right for you. And enjoy each moment. SO many times I heard Brett say how beautiful his wife looked. And she did. Congratulations to you two, you deserve such happiness, Im so glad to have been a part of this.

There was such a relaxed feel to the whole day, setting the idea here with this lovely sign made by a friend of Hayleys, just sit where your heart desires.

Hayley and Brett wanted no theme, just the pretty flowers and they collected (and drank) all these little biere blond bottles, which were lovingly cleaned by Brett and lace stuck around them. The little striped bags on each place setting held these sweeties.

Seeing Hayley's nan really 'getting the treatment' showed just what a lovely close family they all were. She loved it! Had her toes and fingernails done a modern tangy orange by Emma, Hayley's sister and also had make up and hair do!
