Lynne & Ross' Peak District Wedding

The Mermaid Inn, in Staffordshire in The Peak District, was the setting for Lynne and Ross' intimate and relaxed wedding ceremony. It's an old pub house dating back to the 17th Century and is now privately owned and rents out as a 13 bedroom self catered house. It's just a few miles from Leek, where Ross and Lynne had their legal ceremony before heading back to the Inn for their reception. 

It was my first trip to the Peak District, and, although thick with fog, it was still one of the most breathtaking places I've ever seen (I'm glad I arrived the day before the wedding, so I had some idea of how to find it as I could barely see 100 yds in front of me the morning of the wedding!) and I'll definitely be heading back with the family at some point!

Thanks, Ross and Lynne, for inviting me to share your very special day - it was such a joy!

Sarah & Steve's Millbridge Court Wedding

Sarah and Steve's wedding at Millbridge Court was just perfect - such a special day full of moments that I know they'll treasure forever. I haven't worked at Millbridge Court before, but what an amazing venue! With catering from award winning caterers Kalm Kitchen, and an outdoor ceremony in the most perfect setting, I can't wait to shoot there again. Sarah and Steve had a bake-off instead of a traditional wedding cake, which was so much fun. Sarah and Steve chose not to have a pre-wedding shoot, opting instead for a post-wedding shoot with Steve's daughter and their dogs, which I can't wait to do and share on here soon...........

Sophie & Tom's City of London Wedding

A London wedding was the only way as far as Sophie and Tom were concerned - they met in London, they live in London, their friends are all in London, and when they discovered the beautiful St Stephen Walbrook church (almost opposite Cannon Street station), they knew that they just had to get married there. It's such a beautiful church - and, from a photography point of view, has amazing light - a dome ceiling and circular building - so different to many old churches in London. And Jamie's Italian on Threadneedle Street is just so dramatic and imposing, while being so welcoming and, of course, serving amazing food, was an easy choice for reception venue.

The stunning flowers, from Jennifer Pinder, blew me away - I could not believe how utterly gorgeous they were! I'd recommend her in a heartbeat! 

I had so much fun photographing Sophie and Tom's wedding, I loved every minute of it (especially when one of their guests decided to teach me that anyone can dance - even an utter clutz like me!) - it was an amazing day, and I know they had an incredible honeymoon afterwards (Instagram made me sick with jealousy seeing their gorgeous holiday in Singapore and Bali) and I know they've got an amazing lifetime of happiness ahead of them.
