I love the contrasts in what I shoot. On Thursday an industrial London wedding and on Saturday a beautiful countryside church and Sperry Tent wedding in the Derbyshire countryside. I would never want to be a wedding photographer who shoots just one “type” of wedding, its the couples that my style matches with, not the venues and locations.

Church weddings can get a bad rap in this modern age. I personally love the quirks of a proper country church wedding: The locals and their dogs waiting to capture a glimpse of the Bride; the slightly off key organ player; the slightly off tempo wedding guests; the slightly grumpy church warden and the wonderful light and textures of these ancient buildings.

The Wedding Day

Emily’s mums house was the location for the entire reception and Emilys bridal prep which made for a really relaxed vibe and the perfect spot for the beautiful open sided sperry tent with the countryside beyond…..a magical spot for a wedding.

A racing green open top MG transported Emily + Her Dad to the nearby church where Ollie, the guests and random locals awaited. After the ceremony all the guests headed back for drinks in the sunshine whilst we grabbed some portraits in the churchyard and farmland surrounding (cue standard half naked photobomber) before joining them just in time for the wedding breakfast when Emily + Ollie were welcomed to the sound of a hundred personalised tambourines.

Another beautiful day and another beautiful couple. Thanks for having me E+O I had a blast. Here are fifty-ish of my favourite wedding photographs from your wonderful day.
