Sophie & Jonny | Wedding

I know you’ve been waiting to see some more pictures from Sophie & Jonny’s amazing burlesque themed wedding for what seems like forever. Well here they finally are, and I don’t think you’re going to be disappointed – this wedding sure was something else when it comes to individuality and style!

Sophie and the girls got ready at the beautiful family manor hotel, Kegworth House Hotel, and the interior of the room couldn’t have been more fitting! Sophie got her hair and makeup done by a London-based company called Lipstick and Curls, which specialises in retro looks, Sophie even wore 1940’s red lipstick. Her beautiful gown was by Maggie Sottero, albeit with the addition of the black ribbon and the black corset ties, which were from one of her own burlesque corsets. I probably don’t need to tell you that her shoes were by Christian Louboutin, I think the trademark red soles gave it away already! I adored Sophie’s birdcage veil, which she got from from Pishposhes in the US.

The couple travelled between the venues in style, in a beautiful red 1951 Pontiac Cheiftan (which provided some extra excitement to the day by getting overheated during our portrait shoot!). The ceremony of Sophie and Jonny’s wedding took place at All Saint’s Church in Sawley, and the reception was held at the Westgate Suite in Nottingham. Sophie’s inspiration for the day was burlesque, 1940’s and 1950’s. She says: ‘I love everything 1950’s and as a burlesque dancer I knew I wanted that as the theme. With our Parisian and Moulin Rouge engagement I knew I also wanted some of that influence too, hence the black and white.’

In keeping with the theme, the evening’s entertainment was a burlesque dance performed by Scarlett Daggers. ‘We aimed to have the wedding our way for ourselves. I had the odd comment about the burlesque not being very “wedding like”, but I didn’t care. It was what I wanted to see and thought would be an amazing bit of entertainment that we’d enjoy and was a referral back our Moulin rouge engagement. Our engagement was so different and soo us! And so was the wedding!’, says Sophie.

I had so much fun recording this gorgeous wedding! Thank you Sophie & Jonny, for being exceedingly cool and for creating a wedding that looked 100% like you!

P.S. Sophie & Jonny are in fact so cool that Rockn’n’ Roll Bride called dibs on featuring this wedding right after seeing pictures from their engagement session!

Elodie & Vianney | Wedding

This blog post has been a looong time coming! Elodie and Vianney’s wedding on the outskirts of Paris was up there when it comes to individuality, hard work and seeing your vision through.  While the happy couple were on their honeymoon, Elodie’s mum was sharing the story of preparing for this wedding on her daughter’s blog, and the story really is a testament to how much work it took to put this special event together – including everything from clearing the forest floor to hand-assembling forest-sized decorations and building a dance floor.

After getting ready at her grandmother’s house, Elodie met Vianney at the Place de la Libération in Rambouillet for a civil ceremony. From there we travelled to a little village where, in a beautiful forest, Elodie had created a magical world filled with quirky little details. I have to say the bride herself fitted in perfectly and looked like a little fairy princess in her adorable gown.

I won’t tell you much more with words, as you can read all the details from Elodie’s blog. Instead, I’ll tell the story through the pictures. Enjoy!

Rachel & Ben | Wedding

When Rachel got in touch with me originally, she booked me for a few hours to shoot her and Ben’s engagement party in Oxford. They were planning on getting married in Switzerland, but wanted to throw a party for their friends and family in the UK prior to that. Three weeks before the party Rachel phoned me and asked whether I would be available for a longer coverage, as they had just then decided that they were going to change their engagement party into a wedding! The short notice was a bit of a shock for everyone involved in the planning, but it did make sense since Rachel and Ben had already put so much time into the preparations, and since all of their loved ones were going to be under the same roof.

Rachel and her bridesmaids got ready at the beautiful Old Bank Hotel in central Oxford, but from there on things got a bit more adventurous. The unusual, and beautiful, ceremony took place outside on a hilltop in Shotover country park. It was a bit of a new situation for us as photographers logging our stuff across a huge hill, but the setting sure was worth it! I really loved the idea of guests hanging wishes onto the branches of the three underneath which the ceremony was held. In fact, there were lots of lovely details to this wedding, not least Rachel’s beautiful flowers from Daisies, and the gorgeous cars, which came from London Legend.

After the hilltop ceremony, it was back to central Oxford for the evening reception at Gee’s Restaurant, which was the perfect setting to for eating and dancing the night away.

Thank you Rachel and Ben for giving me the shock of my life by changing your plans at the last minute, it really did result in one of the prettiest weddings I’ve had the pleasure to attend this year!
