Ashley & Dan

Here was another classic case of a couple telling me that they HATE having their photographs taken, and that they find it quite awkward and nerve racking. Now, just take a second to look at the images we managed to create. Stunning!

This style of photoshoot works so well to conquer that nervous disposition in front of the camera ahead of the real thing. An engagement photoshoot enables my couples to try out different poses to suit them and also to feel more comfortable and relaxed with both myself and my camera, because natural shots always turn out the best!

I really enjoyed getting to know Ashley and Dan as we strolled around the Blackstone Riverside Park together taking pictures and discussing how they met and finding out their exciting plans for their hen / stag do’s! They are my first Bridebook couple and they are having a winter wedding this year at The Mill Barns, one of my favourite venues. I can’t wait to see them again in November!

Heather & Tom's Wedding Day!

From start to finish, I felt totally immersed in the celebration of love between Heather and Tom. It was lovely to be there to capture the girls getting ready in the morning and helping them with last minute bits and pieces. Then it was on to the beautiful church of St Chads in Birmingham City Centre (the very heart of my hometown!) I’d been past this church so many times before but I never knew just how picturesque it was inside, I was mesmerised by the ornate interior and the welcoming atmosphere that it offered. The ceremony was traditional and classy, with inspiring words spoken by the wonderful priest and stunning voices from the choir. We continued the celebrations back at Fairlawns Hotel which was also beautifully decorated by Heather herself! It was a great opportunity to get some lovely photographs of the newly weds and their family outside in the pretty courtyard area where the late summer sun was beating down on us.
