Luxury Star Wars Theme Wedding

The Force is Strong With this One! A Star Wars Wedding with Some Unexpected Guests…

Emma & Sean are fans of Star Wars, but rather than go all out in a themed wedding, they planned a subtle nod to their love of the movies combined with a classic summer wedding feel. A gorgeous pink and green scheme, with themed place names and favours, not to mention a gorgeous cake tumbling with Star Wars icons. However, as Emma, radiant in Maggie Sottero, and Sean, looking dashing in Stormtrooper monochrome were about to exit their ceremony, a couple of uninvited guests turned up to escort them, courtesy of the brilliant Star Wars costuming group UK Garrison who

A special save the date photo shoot

When Hannah and Kirk booked us for their wedding next year, they also wanted to do something a little different for their Save the Date cards. Hannah had seen some interesting shots on Pinterest and wondered if we could emulate the feel of them. You all know we love a creative challenge so we only too happy to oblige! We put Hannah in touch with Cambridgeshire illustrator Laura Bird and together we all headed to their chosen wedding venue, the gorgeous Childerley Barn, who had kindly let us use a space on their grounds for the shoot. Unfortunately it was

Brighton pre wedding engagement shoot

A Fun Brighton Beach Pre Wedding Shoot

Laura and Lewis are one of those couples who we feel like we have know for years rather than just eighteen months, so when they suggested a Brighton beach pre wedding shoot we knew we were in for a day of fun! Mother nature did her bit and despite it being the end of March it was a glorious bluebird day. Shock revelations though when we discovered that fireman Lewis had NEVER given his fiancée a fireman’s lift! So naturally it made for the perfect time. Throw in some whose-line-is-it-anyway-style doughnut drama and a dive bombing seagull to nick your ice

Zoo Engagement Shoot Shepreth Wild Animal Park

Leeming & Ian’s Fun Shepreth Wildlife Park Zoo Pre Wedding Shoot

When Leeming and Ian said to us that they wanted a ‘fun‘ pre-wedding shoot ‘somewhere like a zoo’, how could we resist? A quick email to the lovely folk at Shepreth Wildlife Park, a super bijou and unassuming little park but with big cats to rival Longleat amongst other favourite animals, and this zoo pre wedding shoot was on. You’ll probably know that we are huge animal lovers, so we were very excited! On the day we captured Leeming and Ian wandering through the animals and listening to keeper talks, and loved capturing some beautifully quiet yet intimate moments between

We don’t do the T-Rex wedding photobomb… unless it’s your cat…

A few years back, we all saw the emergence of the ‘T-Rex’ wedding photobomb. We’re not even sure we can tell you the originator, but we *think* it was an American photographer called J. Quinn Miller in 2013 with this shot. All good fun and it was great. Then we have all the other versions, you just need to search for it and you’ll get lots, some more successful that others. Last year a wedding photographer found himself with Jeff Goldblum as a guest, so he naturally recreated the T-Rex wedding photobomb, and this upstages the original a little. As

Luxury Somerleyton Hall Wedding

Somerleyton Hall Wedding Photography

Somerleyton Hall wedding photography may have just become our new favourite gig. This gorgeous family estate wedding venue just outside of Lowestoft, also happens to be about twenty minutes drive from Lina’s parents’ relatively new and happy retired life. This move wasn’t even an idea when Sarah and JoJo booked us, so funny how things work out! This is a gorgeous venue and we would absolutely love to do more at Somerleyton Hall after an awesome day with Sarah and JoJo, although that could also have something to do with the fact that Texans are our new favourite type of

A Winter Woodland Same Sex Pre Wedding Shoot

One of our favourite types of pre wedding shoot has to be a woodland walk in evening light, and as big animal lovers (that’s we love animals a lot, as opposed to actual big ones, although Lina will squeal if she sees a Bernese Mountain Dog), we get very excited when we know dogs are coming along. As you’ll see from this glorious shoot these two gorgeous little spaniels had a whale of a time, and we had a great time with Mandy and Sarah too! Shooting in winter is such a joy when you get these bluebird days, and

Groomsmen singing Devon wedding LinaandTom

Why you DON’T want Gary Barlow to sing at your wedding…

A simple tweet on the 3rd January from Gary Barlow; Naturally this started a social media frenzy. Gary Barlow, sentimental lead singer of 90s boy band legends Take That, reinvented as mature husband-types in the noughties, would like to sing at three fans weddings. The ultimate wedding singer, right? Two more tweets followed in the next minute. ‘The only deal is they have to be HUGE fans.’ The third tweet I read as a bit sinister. ‘And all you have to do is stalk me on here.’ Am I the only one that reads that with Gary Barlow doing a
