We’re off to a little village near Melton Mowbray today for a summery village hall wedding.
Sarah and Kaya were married at Great Dalby Church before continuing on to Long Clawson Village hall for their summer fete styled reception with outdoor games for their guests. Huge dog lovers they decided they needed to have their own two furry friends play a part in their day. So, decked out in their own bow ties, they joined Sarah and Kaya for a confetti archway walk with a difference!
For their first dance song they chose Two Sleepy People by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross. They explained that this was a song that Kaya has always liked to sing to Sarah. Also, just a little note for brides and grooms to be…during the morning of the wedding there was a little bit of worry over a technical issue with their digital track, but, having mentioned taking their own record player and records to the village hall for the afternoon, we decided that playing the song on vinyl instead as an alternative option, could actually be really nice! So that’s what they did, and the moment of Kaya walking over to start the turntable and then taking her new bride’s hand seemed to fit the era of the music perfectly. So sometimes, little things that may or may not have gone quite to plan, actually, work out even better.
Thank you, Sarah and Kaya, for having us along for your wonderful day!

Having recently re-located back to Carly’s home of Derbyshire from Eastbourne, the bride and groom to be thought it’d be nice to have a little explore around their new village of Holbrook for their engagement shoot session.
At the end of the session we headed back to their new home for a few more shots with their dog Lola. Well we couldn’t have her feeling left out! And with that face how could she not be included in the shoot?! (Look out for her in Carly and James’s wedding photos too, she’ll be there on the day, yay! Have I mentioned I love animals at weddings?)
That’s got your attention right?!
Time for a rockabilly inspired wedding on the blog! 50’s lovin’ bride Holly and Star Wars fan David’s wedding day at Donington Park Farmhouse, Castle Donington, was colourful and fun and the look they’d chosen for their day was *right* up this photographer’s street. Holly and two of her bridesmaids had their hair styled by Pin Up Curl, who offers an exclusive discount for my brides!
The attention to detail was impressive, check out Holly’s super cute cherry print nails! Plus, this talented lady made her own quirky bouquet. Full of cupcake, ice cream, and biscuit clay charms, it even had mini cola bottles with ‘Holly’ and ‘David’ on! Even their honeymoon tied into their styling, a bit of travelling along Route 66.
Look out for the somewhat alternative ‘cutting the cake’ shot courtesy of a groom very much into his martial arts…
