Cake has and will always be seen as a tradition at a wedding. I love to photograph guests as they walk into the venue for the wedding breakfast or reception because they always head straight to the cake table to admire the work that has gone into designing this edible art.
When you mention choosing your wedding shoes to your partner, you may see the eye roll take place. It is a big deal – I get it!
So how do you narrow your shoe choice down for your wedding day?
A September wedding of dreamy weather, venue and people. I can’t help but fall in love with Pauntley House every time I drive down the little lane with fields welcoming me on either side, ready to be part of yet another beautiful Gloucestershire wedding.
My first time at Pauntley Court was actually before Pauntley became a wedding venue. One of my wedding clients was getting married in the church, with a marquee on her parent’s farm for the wedding breakfast. In need of somewhere to take their family for wedding photographs, Melissa was approached about using her beautiful gardens; and Melissa being Melissa said “absolutely!”
As a wedding photographer, I have learnt to think SUPER FAST on my feet and create magic in my camera as it unfolds before me. I don’t have time to move people around or tell my clients “Ok, if you could just walk down the aisle a little slower” or “If you could just laugh at this precise moment that would be great” or “can you just make a magical kiss by tipping your bride back right when I say go”… yup… those moments they don’t happen. I have to be ready for what I think is going to happen next to help make time stand still for your moment to become a picture. And I love it.
Let’s talk wedding flowers. As a wedding photographer I see ALOT of flowers. I see flowers that I have never seen before in colours I didn’t know exist. With a host of colours to choose from on your wedding day, where do you begin when choosing your wedding flowers?
So I love a good bargain. My husband will always leave it to me to find the best price because he knows I LOVE to get my money’s worth. So why should it be any different when you are shopping around for the most important supplier to your wedding: your photographer.
Surveys have shown that people come from all over the United Kingdom to get married in the Cotswolds. The beautiful countryside, quiet hamlets, and the people (of course the people right?!!?) make for the Cotswolds to be a perfect wedding destination.
What a day. I figured on my morning business meeting in the field with my partner in wedding crime, Katherine Edwards of Cherish Cakes, that we could come up with a fabulous styled wedding shoot to help fill the cold, wintry months while we wait for our wedding season to kick off.
