Francesca & Mark Get Married in Sardinia!

Photographing an Italian wedding, an Italian Island wedding - what more could a girl want? Francesca and Mark met in Sardinia, Francesca's home island, and so it felt right to them that, despite living in Manchester, they should go to Sardinia to get married. I am so glad they did, and so glad that they chose me to photograph their amazing day on this beautiful Italian Island.  

Francesca and Mark got married in the Town Hall at Sorso, before heading up to the vinyard of Kent'Annos for their reception. Kent'Annos overlooks the sea, with an amazing vista - perfect for our sunset portraits! 

Francesca and Mark's wedding was blogged on Rock My Wedding, and you can read all of the details (and some really kind words about me!) in Francesca's own words here

Laura & Rob's Cherwell Boathouse Wedding

Photographing weddings in Oxford is always an honour, I get to see parts of Oxford University colleges that I would otherwise never have access to - I've photographed weddings at Merton College and Christ Church College before, but this was my first time as a wedding photographer at Hertford College. The chapel at Hertford is just gorgeous and on such a fantastically sunny day, the light just bounced around Laura and Rob perfectly. 

After their Hertford College wedding and reception drinks, we all headed off to Cherwell Boathouse Restaurant for the wedding breakfast - Laura and Rob arriving shortly after all their guests by punt! Cherwell Boathouse is an amazing restaurant just outside Oxford city centre, right on the river. The food was amazing (a buffet barbecue) and the evening party in the cellar area below was so much fun.

Kate & Goose Got Married!

Kate and Goose got married at her parents' house in Surrey, and it was a truly epic day. Kate's dad built a barn in the back garden for their wedding, as well as an amazing cocktail bar, a family friend did all of the flowers, and the meat for the main meal and evening meal was all raised on their farm. Kate and Goose are two of the most lovely people I've ever met, and bounce off each other perfectly - they laughed and smiled all day long.

I was actually more nervous editing these photos than I have been in years at a wedding, because I really wanted to ensure that the photos reflected just how epic their day really was - the laughter, the friendships, the love that I saw and witnessed on their wedding day was so special. I received an email after I sent Kate the link to the slideshow, from Kate, here's an excerpt

"Oh my god Eliza we love it!!! Just watched it and cried my eyes out it was incredible!!! It perfectly summed up the whole day. Thank you so so so much."

I'm so pleased that they love their photos, and I am so happy that I got to share their day with them.
