Talbot Hotel wedding photos- James and Sam

Talbot Hotel wedding photos- James and Sam

James and Sam are no longer clients - they’re friends as far as I’m concerned. I’ve taken quite a few of their family photographs over the years. 

Their wedding at The Talbot Hotel in Oundle was a joy. Because they’ve seen me work several times before they just let me crack on and trusted everything I said - not even my wife does that!! ;-)

RAF wedding - Aaron and Laura

RAF wedding - Aaron and Laura

It’s always nice to book a wedding because the couple saw you in action at another wedding. Aaron and Laura saw me at work during Adam and Natalie’s Grange Farm wedding and thought my fun-loving style would suit them.

The ceremony was at Wittering Church near Peterborough in Cambridgeshire and the reception was at RAF Wittering since they’re both in the RAF.

Chequers Inn Woolsthorpe Wedding - Keeley and Emma

Chequers Inn Woolsthorpe Wedding - Keeley and Emma

The whole of Keeley and Emma’s wedding day was at the Chequers Inn in Woolsthorpe, near Grantham. 

They both looked so beautiful and demure during the ceremony, but they didn’t hold back in the evening…!

The Chequers is ideal for a wedding if you’re looking for a relaxed vibe in beautiful countryside. There’s a huge hill right behind the venue and Keeley and Emma were awesome enough to agree to jump over the style and walk a little way up it to get some lovely shots.  Fluffy white clouds hovered above the hill to make the scene picture perfect.

Burwash Manor wedding photos - Ben and Anna

Burwash Manor wedding photos - Ben and Anna

I have a slight problem with Ben and Anna's Burwash Manor wedding photos! I captured so many shots that I'd like to put on my website, but I can't have loads of photographs of the same couple in my portfolio! So many of the photographs make me grin from ear to ear. And it's all because I can see the sheer fun, love and spirit that beams off of the faces from everyone who attended. They absolutely smashed it! And so did their awesome guests…

Wedding photos at Thornton Lodge Farm - Ben and Charlotte

Wedding photos at Thornton Lodge Farm - Ben and Charlotte

This was a long journey in many ways. First of all, their wedding was in North Yorkshire so I stayed in a hotel the night before and the night after their wedding. Secondly, when Ben and Charlotte responded to my Facebook advert they initially thought they hated being photographed…

Wyboston Lakes wedding photos - Chris and Emma

Wyboston Lakes wedding photos - Chris and Emma

I loved creating Chris and Emma’s Wyboston Lakes wedding photos. They’re both Cambridge PHD graduates and the perfect blend of crazy and sweet.

For example, Chris impersonated a monkey as he took the confetti out of Emma's hair. 

Their guests were just as much fun…

Orton Hall Wedding photos - Rob and Mel

Orton Hall Wedding photos - Rob and Mel

Rob and Mel’s Orton Hall wedding, was not normal....and I loved every second.

It wasn’t normal because…

...They were like working with professional models...because Mel actually is one...!! And Rob could be. They're beautiful inside and out.

...because I was mugged by a horde of children trying (and succeeding!) in stealing my loud hailer (see photographic evidence)!

…because Mel's stunning veil was as long as a cascading waterfall.

Heacham Manor wedding photos - Addam and Charlotte

Heacham Manor wedding photos - Addam and Charlotte

I had it all with this wedding.

For a start Heacham Manor in Norfolk is fantastic for wedding photos. You’re 5 minutes from the beach and there’s a beautiful garden with a pond and rope swing. Don’t worry, the rope swing isn’t over the pond!

On top of that I had a lovely, chilled couple who looked effortlessly fantastic in front of the camera.

Wedding photos at the Talbot Inn, Oundle - Alex and Amanda

Wedding photos at the Talbot Inn, Oundle - Alex and Amanda

Alex grew up in Oundle, so The Talbot Hotel was the perfect choice for their wedding. Well almost perfect, because Amanda is Canadian so her family had a bit of a trip! But then it’s a little hard to find a venue between Oundle and Ontario… Iceland perhaps…?!

Wedding photos at Irnham Hall - Shaun and Tamsyn

Wedding photos at Irnham Hall - Shaun and Tamsyn

When I first met Tamsyn and Shaun I asked them to describe their wedding at Irnham Hall and Aslackby Church in 3 words.

Their answer was 'Fun' 'Fun' 'Fun'.

They sounded like my kind of couple!

And oh my giddy Aunt did they deliver on their promise! And so did their guests... ...and even the vicar! There were grenades, 7ft dinosaurs, glow sticks, Champagne spraying, synchronised umbrella throwing, vicar throwing (kinda) and Peaky Blinders... ...but more on all that later.

Wedding photos at Grange Farm - Adam and Natalie

Wedding photos at Grange Farm - Adam and Natalie

I love creating wedding photos at Grange Farm because of the stunning countryside and the extremely friendly staff. From the moment I started Adam and Natalie's engagement photos I knew their wedding would be a doddle because they were complete naturals.

They were totally relaxed with each other and with the camera. Most people are a little apprehensive, but for these two I barely needed my magnetic charm, charisma and hilarious jokes (cough)...

Vicky and Paul's Bassmead Manor Barns Wedding Photos

Vicky and Paul's Bassmead Manor Barns Wedding Photos

Two things leap out at me when I think back at Vicky and Paul's Bassmead Manor Barns wedding photos. Firstly they were quite possibly the two best and most natural and beautiful posers a photographer could wish for. Secondly Paul's speech was the best groom's speech I've ever heard.

Why Matt and Lisa's wedding at Sibson Inn caused a traffic jam!

Why Matt and Lisa's wedding at Sibson Inn caused a traffic jam!

I probably shouldn't be quite so pleased with myself for causing a traffic jam on the A1, but I just can't help it... ...we all had so much fun - including the lorry drivers! 

It's not our fault; weddings at Sibson Inn are right next to the A1 so drivers slow down to take a look - particularly when you do what we were doing...

Crazy wedding at The Haycock - with Ben and Kristina

Crazy wedding at The Haycock - with Ben and Kristina

I knew this would be an awesome wedding to photograph from the moment I met Kristina. Ben wasn't at the initial chat, but Kristina booked me on the spot nonetheless.

Apparently this got her in a little bit of trouble when she got home, but Ben and Kristina have a rule...

...they each get to do one naughty thing each year which the other person can't shout at them for.

...Apparently I was Kristina's one!

Rob and Emma's Quirky wedding at The Haycock Hotel

Rob and Emma's Quirky wedding at The Haycock Hotel

The morning started with a huge surprise... X-Factor runner up, Nicholas MacDonald was due to sing at the ceremony and in the evening.

The look on Olivia's face when I mentioned I'd seen him downstairs rehearsing was priceless. THE Nicholas MacDonald!! Really? Here? Check the photograph where she has tears in her eyes.
