NOW TO THE FUN PART PLANNING YOUR SPECIAL DAY

Church or Registry, Manor House to Pub garden, there are so many options now of where to celebrate your special day. You may already have a location in mind but if you are still looking for inspiration I have put together a selection of images from my past weddings.

 

My creative, fun storytelling style will capture all the details from your day in beautiful, natural photographs. Each wedding is as unique as you are and I LOVE the variety of options.

 

It’s about the two of you and your connection, the details and the emotions as they appear naturally, if you have any questions or want to share your ideas with me please do get in touch.

I will be adding many more mood boards so check back soon :)

The Sculpture Gallery

Stunning location

From Bride Prep to evening party The Sculpture Gallery has it all. The ceremony room is breath taking with loads of natural light.

Their website says:

The Sculpture Gallery is located within the grounds of Woburn Abbey and was constructed by Henry Holland during 1789 and 1790 for the fifth Duke of Bedford. Surrounded by the 3,000 acre deer park and overlooking the Camellia Lake and private rose garden, The Sculpture Gallery, originally constructed as an orangery, is one of the most majestic and elegant venues imaginable for weddings, corporate events and private parties, with capacity for 250 guests and exclusivity guaranteed.

Dodford Manor

Northampton

Stunning location!

Dodford Manor is a stunning venue for weddings.


The ceremony takes place in a stunning barn with lots of natural light. It also has a balcony which was perfect to get a birdseye view to get a big group shot.

There are lots of areas around the buildings to explore for portraits and we were blessed with a stunning sunset so made use of the nearby fields to capture some stunning photographs.

Registry Office & Pub

Great for intimate weddings

We are not allowed to use a flash during the wedding ceremony so luckily Ampthill Registry Office has lots of lovely natural light which is a photographers dream. 

They have a garden area to the back but the best area to capture portraits and group shots in on a tree lined public footpath to the left of the Registry.

This lovely couple chose to have their afternoon / evening party at The Knife & Cleaver pub in Houghton Conquest. The pub is full of character and has a lovely garden for more photo opportunities.

Church Ceremony and Village Hall

Great for intimate weddings

St Lawrence Church Bradwell  is such a pretty church and the light was just right with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.

We did the family group shots at the front of the church and then couple portraits were taken during a short walk to Cruck Barn at Bradwell Abbey.

Next to Cruck Barn was a field of horses, my couple trusted me to take a walk in the field and we managed to capture this fun image with the horse. Perfect timing :)
