Liz and Stuart’s Beach themed wedding, Cattows Farm

I love a trip to the British seaside but being based in the Midlands its not often I get to photograph a wedding there so when Liz and Stuart said they were bringing the seaside to a farm in Leicestershire how could I resist. The ceremony took place at Sir John Moore School in Appleby Magna before moving to the beach at Cattows Farm for the reception.

Now I knew Liz and Stuart weren’t going to do things by halves, there was an ice cream hut, two beautiful camper vans from Pear Tree Weddings, donuts, an acoustic set by Charlie Jones from Charlie and the Martys, crazy golf, candy floss, deck chairs, fish n chips, and a Punch and Judy show.  To top it all off the bride and groom put on their Hi De Hi jackets and ran a few games of bingo.

It was an amazing day but I do think booking the perfect seaside weather of sunshine and massive downpours was taking it a bit too far though.

Ladywood Estate wedding, Sarah & Alex

The first of my May Bank Holiday weekend weddings and my first visit to the beautiful Ladywood Estate on the Leicestershire and Rutland border.
I couldn’t have wished for a nicer couple to photograph for my first visit to this Country House as I have known the bride for a number of years.  Sarah’s parents Pete and Anne used to run wedding fairs in Leicester and always said that when she got married she wanted me to photograph the wedding, so when I got the call how could I say no.

Lindsay & Peter, elegant spring wedding at Stubton Hall

If you have ever been married you will know that planning a wedding can be a challenge, so spare a thought for Lindsay and Peter who had to organise their elegant English spring wedding at Stubton Hall from over 5000 miles away in the States and wow what a wedding, everything came together perfectly.

With the groom Peter being a photographer out in LA and a fair few of the guests also being photographers I was made up that my style was exactly what he wanted and had picked me to capture the day.   Stubton had recommended most of the suppliers so it was lovely to team up with super talented Alison Jenner and Jenni Hughes again.
