Lynsey & Shaun

On the 25th of August I had the pleasure of shooting my most local wedding yet!  Lynsey & Shaun live just outside Knighton in Whitton.  This is where we lay our scene for the rest of the day!

Lynsey is such a sweet girl and she was so excited on the morning of the wedding – it was a delight to spend time with her and her lovely bridesmaid and parents!  I got to split my time between her family home, where she was getting ready, and their cottage just down the lane, where Shaun was getting ready!

Just as I was going down to take more photos with the Groom, we recieved some awful news.  Poor Shaun had just been stung badly by a wasp and needed medical assistance.  The ceremony had to be delayed while he was being seen to by the paramedics.  Lynsey was in an absolute panic but her bridesmaid was an amazing support in calming her down – what a treasure.

So, Shaun was able to get to the ceremony but it had to be shortened.  After than he needed to go to hospital 🙁

Looking back through the photos, Lynsey was so strong – she kept that smile on her face and soldiered on.

The celebrated return of Shaun got the evening off to a good start  … we still managed some couple shots and Lynsey partied hearty once she knew her boy was o.k.

My highlight of the evening was Lynsey rocking out to ‘A Bat Out Of Hell’ by Meatloaf … what a gal!

I’m really glad things turned to o.k in the end – it was quite scary for a while – but well done for getting through it Shaun and Lynsey.  You’re a wonderful couple and I wish you every happiness in your married life together. x

Danielle & Dominic

On the 19th of August I travelled to Albrighton Hall Hotel in Shrewsbury for Danielle & Dominic’s wedding.

They are such a sweet couple and just adoring of each other … so I was looking forward to this day!

They had planned to have the wedding outside in the grounds but sadly the heavens opened up in the morning and their plan was foiled!  This didn’t stop a beautiful ceremony however and them successfully tying the knot.

Thankfully things dried up afterwards so that we could make use of the beautiful grounds for photos.  The couple were a delight to take photos of, they are just two genuinely lovely people!

It was funny documenting the age old tradition of the bride lobbing her bouquet behind her to the competitive ladies massed together … this seems to be making a comeback at the moment!

All in all, this was a wonderful wedding – the icing on the cake (not literally) was a big ol’ confetti bomb during their first dance – don’t worry, no harm came to the Bride & Groom in the making of these shots!  🙂

Congrats Danielle and Dominic!

David & Deborah

This was one of the most delightful weddings I’ve had the pleasure of photographing!  On the 16th of August I rolled up to the gorgeous Walcot Hall and got to spend the morning with both the bride and groom in their separate quarters!

This wedding party was a right ol’ musical bunch!  For a ceremonial interlude, they got everyone to sing the classic ‘It Must Be Love’ by Madness and they were accompanied by a magnificent brass band made up of their talented friends! It was a wonderful addition to proceedings.

I have to say, I adored photographing this couple.  Just seeing David & Deborah together, you can see how in love they are and perfectly matched – I could gush about them for a while but instead, I’ll just show you the photos…

Congratulations D&D and thank you so much for letting me photograph your beautiful day!
