Blair and Rebecca's beautiful Kent Wedding

Those of you that have read earlier blog posts will remember, Frankie the dachshund was a major part of Becky and Blair's engagement shoot. Unfortunately, he couldn't accompany the pair throughout the day and boy what a day he missed! 

Becky looked incredible as she got into her Isabella Grace dress, and Blair was equally on top form. You could tell just how proud her father was as he walked her down the aisle. The same aisle her sister and mother had walked down before her.

It was a brilliant day from start to finish. A close friend sang during the signing of the register, a helicopter brought the newly weds into the gardens at Ashdown Park Hotel, the setting for dinner was a fantastic converted church, and the first dance was beautifully choreographed.

Enjoy scrolling through the pictures, they were truly a delight to take.

Abbie and Matt's Pre-Wedding shoot in the Sherwood Forest

We first met Abbie and Matt in January of this year to discuss their wedding. They are a great couple and we were really looking forward to celebrating with all their family and friends.

The start of the year sped by and finally, on what started out as a very wet day in July, we were able to meet at Sherwood Forest. We arrived armed with umbrellas and wet weather shoes (all except Abbie...) but we didn't really need it. The ground was a bit wet, but the rain held off for the most part.

We spent a lovely few hours discussing their house move and all that would entail, the ins and outs of the big day, and all the while having some fun in front of the camera.

Check out some of the photos we took, and watch this space for the Wedding Day shots to follow!

Darren and Wendy Pre-Wedding Photoshoot at Wollaton Park

Darren and Wendy contacted me earlier this year to shoot their wedding at The Belmont Hotel in Leicester. Neither of them had particularly had a photo shoot before, so we were keen to get a pre-wedding shoot in so they could feel more comfortable before their big day.

We spoke about a few places that we could go, and in the end settled on heading to Wollaton Park to take advantage of their pleasant grounds.
