Fun and glittery cat-themed wedding

Kathryn and Darren’s wedding was a beautiful, relaxed day that ticked the number 1 wedding box: it was totally, unmistakably, 100% “them”. With Harry Potter references, appearances from their cat Beyonce, a glitter bar, and unicorn gin, it was a celebration of them as a couple. And that’s how weddings should be. More than that, they had a stunning explosion of flowers as their reception decor, and they had temporary tattoos of their face for all their guests to wear – total genius!

What was your favourite part of the day?

One of my favourite bits was when the dance floor was packed with everyone enjoying the band. Then suddenly Darren walked in with his face painted like a tiger (in reference to Kathryn’s Dad’s speech earlier in the day, where he said ‘a woman needs a tiger in the bedroom’) it made us all howl!

What was your favourite shot of the day, and why?

One of my favourite shots of the day is a fun photo of Kathryn & Darren with a cardboard cut-out of their cat Beyonce! As soon as I walked in and saw Beyonce, I knew I wanted to put her in one of the shots. Being a cat lady myself, I knew how much it would mean for

The colourful, Glastonbury-inspired festival wedding of Lucy + Ollie at Southover House, Dorset

Glastonbury-inspired festival wedding

With Glastonbury playing a crucial part in their love story, Lucy and Ollie always knew their wedding would be festival-themed; but they really went above and beyond with Lolliefest at Southover House in Dorset!

Making things bright and colourful with a ribbon installation just like the ribbon tower they got engaged on top of, but keeping it elegant and chic with bohemian styling and pastel bridesmaids, they had a day that was totally Worthy (geddit?). Plus, they had wedding pizza and AN AFTERPARTY DISCO BASEMENT. Best wedding ever?

What was your favourite part of the day?

Their whole day was a dream to shoot, was so refreshing and so well put together, but the dancing in the evening was especially amazing.

These guys met at a festival and clearly know their music… as do all their friends and family! As a result, the dancefloor was always packed and everyone was on such good form that it was a dream to photograph and just loads of fun. Guests were singing up on stage, people were going up on shoulders and – lest I forget – there was a pizza van outside serving amazing pizza. Definitely had a few slices of that after the band finished their first set!

Emily + Johan’s Epic Austrian Ski Resort Wedding…

A Epic Ski Resort Wedding…

Today we have a stunning Austrian wedding to share with you featuring ski loving bride Emily and snowboarder groom Johan.

Captured beautifully by Cat from Wild Connections, this awesome duo knew that the mountains had to play a huge part of their special day. Emily is a skier from Canada and Johan grew up snowboarding in Sweden; so winter sports was a shared love and plays a huge part of their lives.

Its a gorgeous destination wedding with an emotional first look reveal on the mountain tops, a ceremony overlooking the resort (OMG those views!!) and a cosy dinner with candles and fur rugs… lush!

Day two involved sambuca shots and hitting the slopes… what a perfect way to round up the celebrations!

Emily + Johan…

How did you meet and get engaged?

Johan and I met on a weekend in London, but became close on ski trips in Val D’Isere. Since the mountains are obviously such a big part of our lives, Johan decided to propose on our 4-year anniversary at a small ski hill in Stockholm. All that mattered was that it was a surprise and that we were on snowboards!

Was there an overall theme to your day? If so, what was it?

The inspiration behind our wedding day was to not focus too much on

How did the couple find you?

I met Zoë and Luke in 2015 at a wedding fair in Brighton. They won a competition I was running for an engagement shoot; we had it on Halloween in the South Downs. It was epic, we had red smoke bombs and made friends with some cows!

What was your favourite part of the day?

The piñata! I loved seeing both bride and groom bash the shit out of them with a bat and then they got all their guests to do the same. There were sweets and lollies flying about everywhere. I thought it was hilarious!

What was your favourite shot of the day, and why?

A close up portrait of the couple. I loved it because in all the craziness of the staged photos (we were doing smoke bombs posed ones in honour of their engagement sesh) they found the time to have this incredible unstaged moment and I was there to

Stephanie and Luke’s Laidback Pub Wedding with Rustic + Bohemian Styling…

Relaxed Pub Wedding…

Good morning and welcome to another unique real wedding instalment here on the blog! Today we have the absolute pleasure of sharing Stephanie and Luke’s laidback, beautifully bohemian, pub wedding with you, captured by the wonderful Marni V Photography. Her relaxed and informal style suited this couple perfectly, as she describes herself as offering ‘Fun, Creative, Alternative Wedding Photography for the Crazy In Love‘. And speaking of love, you can just feel it radiating from these two…just look at the way they give each other that ‘look’!

I absolutely adore Stephanie’s flower choices, as she’s picked simple yet sophisticated petals and foliage that work against the bare table setting so well. The couple were actually on a lower-than-average budget too, although you would never know it with this beautiful pub wedding! This wedding is super effortless, vintage-boho chic at it’s best. And let’s not forget the invitation of the couple’s dog please – I am a HUGE dog lover, so pet-paws at a wedding gets a big smile and a firm thumbs up from me!

So happy to hand over to photographer Marni and bride Stephanie to tell you all about the day in a little more detail….
