Kirsty & Marko

My oh my what a day this was! Kirsty & Marko threw the rule book straight out the window to throw the mother of all parties! They both looked incredible in their 60's inspired attire, Kirsty wearing a one-of-a-kind mini dress, and killer vintage heels, whilst Marko (not to be outshone!) rocked a truly amazing custom made velvet William Morris print Jacket. Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds played to host to a magical ceremony, with a selection of wonderful readings and music including a spoken word rendition of one of my favourite tunes - David Bowie's Moonage Daydream. This was followed by a cracking reception at The Faversham, topped off with fabulous tunes from the brilliantly named Creedence Clearwater Revival Revival! Here's Kirsty and Marko's wedding bonanza - Enjoy!    

Fran & George

Fran and George's wedding was soooo beautiful! I mean, there is no words that can describe how much love these two have for each other. What an incredible day at the amazing Two Woods Estate! Fran wore a one-of-a-kind wedding dress bought in her hometown in Italy. They tied the knot in the most stunning redwood forest surrounded by all their nearest and dearest. All followed by an amazing pizza van, hula hoops, smiles, laughter, dancing, sparkles and great music! Loved working alongside these wonderful suppliers: Daisy Ellen for the amazing flowers, delicious cakes by Bunson Bakes, Fran Carter & Katie from The Vintage House That Could. Here is Fran & George's magical story ... 

Kayleigh & Andrew

What can I say about this lovely pair and their absolutely incredible day … Kayleigh & Andrew’s DIY-tastic wedding extravaganza at the oh so amazing The Byre at Inchyra really was a photographers dream! All the wonderful home-made touches and gorgeous blooms created a stunning backdrop for such a special day. Kayleigh & Andrew really are the most wonderful couple and it was a joy to see two such lovely folk tying the knot! Big shout out to all the suppliers: Wild Rover Food, Liggy's Cakes & Bespoke Bridal Hair by Robyn Donald.

Sarah & Eddy

Sarah & Eddy's amazing DIY wedding was bursting at the seams with character and charm! From the incredible homemade Origami flowers (which must have taken the patience of a saint to make!) to the delicious home-brewed beer (which I know was delicious as I sampled some later that evening!), they really had thought of everything! There was a real sense of family and friendship throughout the day, none more so during a rabble rousing rendition of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" in memory of Sarah's mum. A truly wonderful day spent with the loveliest of people. Here's Sarah & Eddy's wedding bonanza...!   

 

Sophie & Henry

Sophie & Henry’s amazing wedding in the Yorkshire Dales was really something special! The day started with a lovely, intimate family affair at Harrogate Registry office - which also happens to be where I married my beautiful wife last year, so brought back loads of wonderful memories. We then headed over to The Sportsman's Arms, a gorgeous country pub in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Sophie & Henry were greeted by champagne, friends and a Mexican wave! What an amazing day, with one of the loveliest couples you could wish to meet. Here's Sophie & Henry's wedding bonanza...!
