Overdue recap of 2019! (At least it’s still January, right!?)
Thank you so much to all my 2019 clients. Once again weddings took me to new towns and far corners of the country, but my personal highlight has got to be shooting my first destination wedding, and in Vegas no less!
Emma and Adam booked me back in 2018, now we’re entering 2020 and you guys, I can officially say, you’re getting married this year!! Woooo!
Random facts : Emma‘s favourite animal is the tapir and Adam’s favourite food is pizza.
They chose the street art of the streets of Manchester for their pre-wedding shoot, with a few pretty frontages and a stop at a record stuff for the music loving pair, encompassing their love for the city and wanting a backdrop with some character and diversity to suit their personalities.
As a lover of analogue photo booths, and hearing this pair had never had a set of photos done in one, we had to round the shoot up in the anologue booth at the Fred Alduous store. Also meaning they got to take home a little souvenir from their day on their engagement shoot <3
I can’t wait to shoot their wedding at the beautiful West Mill in Derby later this year!
PINIMAGEFirst blog of 2020! Happy new year everyone!
I thought I’d start with a special one from the end of 2019, a vintage styled Winter wedding at Derby’s West Mill.
This wedding features my good friend Eve, who you may recognise from some styled shoots and any personal get together shots I may have shared. I first met Eve when I was getting started in photography professionally back in 2012 when she modelled some clothes for a local vintage store I collaborated with to build my portfolio. We got chatting over our shared love of vintage and have been friends ever since.
I’ve shot a bunch of weddings at local venue the West Mill, Derby, over the years, so it was surreal to arrive and this time be seeing photos of a face I knew amongst the childhood photos decorating the venue.
Eve and Rich’s wedding day was stunning, beautifully styled with elements of art deco and just the right amount of glitz. I wouldn’t have expected anything less than a photographer’s dream given how much thought Eve was putting into the details into her planning and wanting everything to be just right on a day that meant so much to her.
Rich made the perfect groom alongside her, looking oh so dapper in his classic suit. The emotion on his face when he saw her coming down the aisle showed that the day meant just as much to him too.
Eve had a second dress for her reception which was more suitable for a bit of dancing and they rounded off their evening with sparklers outside, perfect for a Winter wedding.
I hope you enjoy a peek into their gorgeous day and maybe find some inspiration for your own wedding.
Thank you to Helen Davies of Helen Hates Peas Photography for assisting me at this wedding
