Next week I’ll be flying out to Mexico to photograph the destination wedding of Aleece and Tim, so I thought it was a great opportunity to re-share this image from their Engagement Shoot in Houston, Texas.
A fantastic couple that I first met in US whilst photographing the New York City destination of Fay and Dan.
Aleece and Tim really do know how to party so you can probably understand why I’m so excited to be able to photograph the weekend celebration, where they’ll be joined by close friends and family from around the US.
No doubt I’ll be sharing some previews on my blog and Facebook page on my return to the UK.
Saying that something ‘rocked’ isn’t normally a phrase that I’d use, which is a shame because I’d like to think that I’m cool enough to say it convincingly, clearly I’m not! However there is no better way to describe Cordelia and Koop’s wedding at The Devonshire Dome than to say it rocked!
The wedding couldn’t have come at a better time, with the UK being in full festival mode, Cordelia and Koop’s guests were treated to some world class wedding entertainment.
For Cordelia and Koop their Derbyshire wedding was very much a Destination Wedding as although Cordelia was born and raised in England and Koop spent some time here growing up, they now live in Finland and for their special day most guests made the journey from Finland and The Netherlands.
With both Cordelia and Koop working within the music industry, as did several the wedding party and guests I was always excited to see how their wedding would unfold.
Following their Church wedding ceremony in Staffordshire, the party truly started at The Devonshire Dome in Buxton where a life band and several performances from guests and a surprise one from Koop kept everyone rocking until the early hours.
For the reception I was joined by my sister company Snapcandy Photo Booths for the guests to capture a unique angle of the celebrations through the Photo Booth and Video Booth and you can see some of those photos here.
Here are a few of my favourite moments from Cordelia and Koop’s wedding that are also available on my Facebook page.
Having just finished my first year of my favourite images I wanted to pick this week’s image based on what’s to come within the next 52 weeks.
I’m really looking forward to photographing Nicola and Lee’s Woodland themed wedding next year so I thought it’d be great to share one of my favourite images from their Engagement Shoot in Derbyshire.
The location for their shoot was perfect and it was a great way to build up to their wedding. However what was even more impressive was how quickly Nicola and Lee became comfortable in front of the camera, something that before the shoot they didn’t think they would.
It made for great portraits and you can see more of Nicola and Lee’s Engagement Shoot here.
I’m absolutely loving my weekends this year as I’m so often spending them with amazing couples celebrating and creating moments that are just so fantastic to photograph and last weekend that couple was Naomi and Joe whose wedding was in Norfolk.
You would have thought that a four hour drive across the UK would have given me bragging rights as the farthest travelled at Naomi and Joe’s wedding but my journey was easily trumped by Joe’s family and friends who travelled from Australia, Joe’s native country.
Having only spoken to Naomi on Skype and first meeting Joe on the morning of his wedding it was great that we all clicked and the whole family made me feel so welcome.
I hope you enjoy flicking through a preview of some of my favourite moments which can also be seen on my Facebook page.
Sometimes during weddings, I’ll capture something truly amazing that when I have a little break I have to have a sneaky look at it on the back of my camera. Usually my suspicions are accurate and I then I’m almost bursting with excitement to share the photo. This image from Holly and Adam’s wedding at The Peak Edge Hotel is definitely one of those amazing images that I’m so glad to have created.
With any job we perform we all love to get acknowledgement and wedding photography is no exception to that, so I was especially pleased when the image received such a great response on Facebook.
