PINIMAGEChristmas loving Charlie had talked about wanting a festive feel to her Winter wedding, or as festive as she felt they could get away with without being in December itself! With deep reds and leafy greens in and the bridal party bringing some sparkle and faux fur it definitely had that festive feel to the day.

This was a bit of a special one as it was the second wedding with both bride Charlie and bridesmaid Harriet, who had been one of my brides at her own wedding in Buxton just a couple of months earlier when Charlie was one of *her* bridesmaids! So it was really cool to see a lot of familiar faces again amongst the guests.

Thank you Charlie and Ian for giving me such a lovely wedding to round off my 2017 with!

I’m really excited to finally be able to share the results from our Twin Peaks styled shoot from earlier in the year. Get yourself some damn fine coffee and enjoy!

(Please check out the full list of the awesome and super talented suppliers involved in this shoot at the end of the post!)

We started off at the Kelso bar and private hire venue in Loughborough for some post ceremony coffee, donuts, and Twin Peaks themed cocktails!  We chose the Kelso for its woodsy tones, which felt very Peaks, and eclectic decor. Plus it has cabin-esque diner style booths, perfect for some damn fine coffee!

And so another busy year comes to an end, where did it go!? I feel like I was writing by 2016 end of year post only a couple of weeks ago…

Once again my weddings took me up and down the country and I got to share some wonderful, crazy, funny, and emotional days with my awesome couples.  Putting wedding photos together for this post one word kept coming to me looking at the shots I was choosing and it was ‘real’.  I love that my couples allow me to capture such real moments.  I know that sounds cheesy but I just love capturing this ‘real’ stuff!  Real hugs, real looks of love between newlyweds, real laughter, real happiness, real emotion.  They always make for my personal favourite photographs when it comes to an end of year blog.  It makes my face hurt from smiling every year when looking back through them all and seeing so much happiness!

So as always, thank you to everyone that made my year as a business a lovely one!

Alongside my weddings we also held another Starlet Suite makeover shoot day, I photographed a bunch of burlesque beauties performing at a new show in London, and I shot a couples session in Las Vegas!  One of my highlights however has to be shooting the portraits of the stars of one of my all time favourite tv series, Red Dwarf.

2017 you were pretty awesome looking back, 2018 you’ve got a lot to live up to! I’m excited to see what you bring…

Carrie-Anne and Dom were married in this awesome little vintage cinema, The Electric, in Birmingham. A wedding in a cinema has always been on my wishlist to shoot, so I was sooo excited when their enquiry appeared in my inbox! (More weddings in cinemas please universe!

Carrie-Anne is a wonderful singer and Dom, although professionally working as a chef, is a very talented guitarist so the two produced a super cute intro film for their family and friends to show before the ceremony of them performing a few songs together. It was intertwined with some obligatory selfies through the years and Snapchat silliness!
After their ceremony they kept their wedding informal and relaxed by heading to the nearby Cherry Red’s for their non-traditional reception for drinks and sausage cobs and chips! They didn’t want their wedding day to feel traditional or stuffy, as as you can see they’re not ‘traditional or stuffy’ people! In her original enquiry Carrie-Anne described wanting the day to just feel like a happy gathering of their loved ones, and I think that’s just what it was.
