St James Church in Castle Eden set the tone for this romantic Autumn wedding. Posting this makes me wish away the Summer for golden tones, rich spices and heart foods that come with my favourite season. Rustic hand tied blooms, earthy and warm in texture and colour, littered with painted golden pumpkins, pine cones and seasonal fruits made up the decor at the impressive County Hall in Durham, where our couple held their weding breakfast. Alex's look, classic and elegant, teamed with Ewan's smart kilt in deep navy and green was a dream to shoot and we loved every minute spent with this warm and loving pair. Get cosy, light the last fire of the season and enjoy this nod to a lovers Autumn and all it has to offer. x
I think we had been looking forward to Phil and Lizzie's wedding all Summer. We knew it was going to be a good old knees up, and that some of our besties were going to be there... bonus! The day didn't disappoint. To start with, Lizzie, a local BBC radio presenter, is just gorgeous, and we knew that she would have a dress to die for, and didn't she just! The whole family are just lovely, lovely people, and we were made up to be asked to shoot the wedding for her and Phil. It was a local affair, held in the pretty village of Brantingham, East Yorshire. Bridal prep kicked off at the family home in Cottingham, with vintage VW camper and car arriving to pick up the bridal party. The church service was held at the very pretty local church, and the marquee reception, high on the hill at the Keeper's Lodge, was hidden away, with views over the Yorkshire Wolds. The theme was vintage tea party, and we loved all of the gorgeous details, china tea cups, and pretty birdcage centre pieces. We have to mention the amazing live acoustic set by the lovely Mike Wright, and working with the photographer Nick Freeman, of 246 Photography. It was a great day, and we hope you enjoy this fun, vintage inspired trailer for the lovely two;
The absolutely gorgeous Danielle and Stuart were hitched over the Christmas break, and what a stunning wedding it was. From first meeting the beautiful, immaculate Danielle, I knew, as her eyes danced describing the 'winter wonderland' theme, glittering and sparkling in an array of ivory and silver, it would be amazing. A crisp day in the heart of Leeds, bleaching, flaring sunlight filled our lenses, as we filmed the imposing St Anne's Cathedral. Observing midday mass, as we sussed out the venue, a creeping sense of tranquillity and quiet was upon us, as though it was giving this lovely couple an approving nod. Capturing those first glimpses of Danielle and her girls, wrapped in ivory fur and hands full of frothing bundles of gypsophila was, simply, wonderful.
Festivities continued at the fabulous Stansfield Arms. A white marquee in the grounds hosted a haven of pristine decor, and the most indulgent and mouth watering assortment of puddings and cakes we have ever witnessed. Tables were set with sparkling candelabras and arrangements of white and ivory flowers, an air of sophistication filled the room. The mood was set by the sounds of the superb Neill Ryan.
Aesthetic beauty aside, (and everything at this wedding was beautiful!!), we were truly touched and warmed by the love of Danielle and Stuart from their nearest and dearest, and for each other. There was a glow of love and adoration from every face in the room for this couple, and it shone, brighter then any of the glittering decor.
It wasn't long before the amazing Peggy Sarsfield and Co got the floor moving and the rest is history. The term 'knee's up!' is an understatement!
All in all, we are delighted to present the trailer to Danielle and Stuart's film, and are even more humbled and warmed by the invite to join them for their stunning day, and can only wish them all the happiness and luck in the world for their future together.
Here is it;
