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.

In October photographer bud Lisa and I decided we deserved a mini break.  We chose Llandudno on the coast of North Wales for it’s nostalgia factor.  We wanted to pop over to the coast and another requirement was a pier. Living in Liverpool North Wales was a regular weekend day out hot spot and I’d been to Llandudno a few times growing up with my parents/grandparents.

We stopped in a proper old school hotel right on the sea front and our room turned out to even have a sea view which was rather lovely of a morning! Plus it meant we got visited by a certain seagull friend a couple of days in a row, who we may have shared some pizza with…we named him Trevor.

We spent a fair few 2ps in the arcades, ate fish and chips, obviously, played bingo in our hotel in the evening (I told you it was old school) and played about with a bit of street photography in the day to try capture a bit of Llandudno’s spirit.  We mae several trips down the pier too, I just love piers. They’re just a bit timeless and lovely! Even the shops selling random tack have their own bit of charm haha. But mostly I just love the quietness on them of an evening, especially this time of year, lit up with the little lights back on the coast twinkling away against the sea.  Takes you back to another era a bit but also just generally away from all the hustle and bustle of general life. It’s all quiet and still and lovely.

On our last full day we hung around in the hotel bar area for a bit getting creative, sketching some of the other guests, and writing some quick little poems.  We also discovered that we’re really not great at snooker…but slightly less rubbish at table tennis.  Mini breaks are important I think, especially when you’ve had a lot of work on! But I think they can also help inspire some new forms of creativity. In England I always think the coast is always the place to go, living so far in-land now I do miss it…

I didn’t take my camera out with me all the time, I kinda wanted it to be an actual break, to take in my surroundings rather than always being behind a camera. I did however take it out a few times though, as it just would have been a shame not to! So here they are, I hope you enjoy getting a peek into our little trip…

Those fingers in my hair
That sly come-hither stare
That strips my conscience bare
It’s witchcraft

Laura and Joe were married in Liverpool this Summer in two theatre venues. Their ceremony was held where they had both met and worked, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, with their reception just further down Hope Street at the Everyman Theatre.

They had wanted their wedding to have a relaxed atmosphere with lots of personal touches.  Bride Laura made her own dresses and wore some fabulous glitter Doc Martens as her wedding shoes.  They chose a loose theme of the sea and the stars with Laura having some stars embellishments along the bottom of her dress and a starry crown headpiece.

In the evening she joined with her guests from the choir she sings in to do a beautiful acapella medley for her evening guests.
