Quinton House Wedding Northampton – Frances & Parshin

There is nothing not to LOVE about this wedding. Frances & Parshin were both absolutely amazing (I knew they would be!). Their sunny wedding day was sandwiched between two rainstorm days allowing them the opportunity to have their intimate handfasting ceremony in the woodland grounds of Quinton House.

Here is their wedding preview slideshow, a MUST watch!

And a handful of images closer up below…. Frances & Parshin you two ROCKED IT! x

Kelmarsh Hall Wedding

Love, love, LOVED this Kelmarsh Hall Wedding with Charlie & Danny! I knew I would, firstly I love Kelmarsh especially Jill, she’s ace and also because Charlie & Danny are just such a wicked couple I knew the day with go with a bang! Add to that Charlie’s love of Northern Soul, I was very much looking forward to the evening dancing too, they definitely did not disappoint.

Charlie and the girls got read at the lovely Church Farm Lodge in a little village around the corner called Harrington before heading to the lovely little church in Clipston. The lovely camper and beetle were there from Pear Tree Weddings, such beautiful VW’s!!

I laughed and cried with everyone, laughed a lot!! Thanks you guys for being awesome x

Mature Couple Shoot Northamptonshire

I say mature…. but it’s my Dad and he’s the biggest kid I know! On reflection I probably should have pulled my finger out and got this one blogged on Sunday!! I’ve been planning to photograph my Mum & Dad for a long time, but said “big kid” broke his leg after climbing trees with my nephew, then loads of travel with work commitments, so it was on the back burner for some time!!

The forecast was promising some lovely weather mid May and I was with Mum and said right, let’s book this in otherwise it’ll never happen and we chose an evening for the flattering light and so it wasn’t too hot either. I’m very fortunate to live in a village surrounded by beautiful countryside and in the build up to the shoot I’d spotted a few frames on my dog walks that I wanted to use with Mum & Dad. I’ll be honest I was so nervous about photographing my parents, firstly throughout my childhood I always remember Mum hating her photo being taken… I don’t like mine being taken but Mum really, really disliked it! Mum is also my number one fan, always following my blogs and my facebook page so I didn’t want her to be disappointed with her own photos. The pressure was on.

I was so pleased that almost instantly Mum & Dad relaxed into the shoot, they were total naturals. The scenery was lovely and the sun even gave us a smidgen at golden hour. What I loved the most about it was actually spending time with them, not just as my parents but as a couple. It made my heart melt a little… they are celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary this August and as you can see, they still love each other to bits. I felt honoured to have been able to photograph them this way.

Photographer friends, I urge you to take the time to do this with your parents. I said to my husband before showing Mum & Dad the photos, even if they don’t like them I’m going to treasure these so much! Incidentally they loved them and already have 7 images framed on the wall from the shoot icon smile Mature Couple Shoot Northamptonshire

Italy Destination Wedding Photographer

I’ve been so excited to share this wedding with you, not just because it was a destination wedding but because of every little part of the day that made it different. Lianne & Ollie had seen many friends get married over the last few years and felt there weren’t many of the local venues left for them to choose from! With that in mind they decided to marry in Sardinia. They were both super relaxed about the whole thing and everything on the day it made photographing an absolute joy. With that and Lianne’s three dress changes! (yes three!) I was in my element.

I met with them for lunch on the first day where we casually sipped diet coke and munched Italian pizza (rude not too!) outside a little restaurant on the main square in a little town called Pula. We talked about the plans for the next day, which to be honest were laid back and flexible and had a little recce of the island for their first look photos. I love the first look concept but have been yet to photograph one. For a little twist Lianne wore a tulle overskirt over her actual wedding dress which was beautiful… it threw everyone of the scent who were all imagining her in a fitted dress. After the first look on the balcony of their villa we hotfooted it to the beach before the ceremony in the town hall.

Another first for me was the chance to capture their wedding day in a photo/film fusion. A short slideshow that includes photos and snippets of film for movement during the day… so without further ado, the wedding of Lianne & Ollie Part One! you HAVE to watch this…

Family Lifestyle Photographer Northamptonshire

Last week the sun was shining a LOT and spring has truly sprung all around the Northamptonshire countryside, it’s beautiful. Jess and I have been trying to get together for a shoot in the fields for a little while, we studied photography at college together. Jess has a super cool little lady called Liv… Liv is obviously not shy about having a camera in her face with her mum around so these shoot was an absolute breeze. Jess was a little camera shy initially, which I totally understand, it’s very odd being the other side of the camera but that’s what I love so much about family lifestyle photography, so much less pressure and so much more natural.

Another thing that makes these photos really special is I often hear about Mum’s not being in the photo… LADIES LISTEN UP… be photographed with your children, it’s important. It doesn’t matter how you look or how you feel about yourself, photographs are about who you are, they’re about memories, everlasting ones. I’m the same if not worse and actually must book in a shoot soon with my children. They’ll want to show their children and their children’s children.
