Jessica and Andy were married on a cold winter's day at the end of November. I'm starting to really love photographing winter weddings more; traditionally a challenge to the photographer as the light falls earlier but the warmth, rich colours and low-light make for some magically romantic images. Never more so than the photographs of Jess and Andy in front of the stained glass window in St Edmunds Church in Mansfield Woodhouse. Jessica looked every inch the princess bride in her sequinned lace Ronald Joyce gown from I Do Bridal Boutique. After the ceremony we drove to Norwood Park, and the team greeted all the guests with mulled wine and glasses of Prosecco. After dinner, we stayed for the dancing and left the party in full swing! Here are the highlights from their day.Read More
Over this past winter I collaborated with a number of wedding suppliers on a styled wedding photoshoot entitled 'Winter Wonderland Wedding'. Wedding season is traditionally from spring to autumn, with these months being the most popular to get married but winter can provide an incredibly romantic atmosphere and one of the prettiest colour palettes. We wanted to show how this could be done to best effect. However, we didn't want it to be Christmas themed, opting instead for a combination of all shades of white and palest grey with accents of metallic and evergreen - giving this photoshoot more than a touch of old-Hollywood, flim star glamour.
Candlelight, marabou feathers, sumptuous fabrics and sweet smelling narcissi are all uniquely available to winter brides and it's these timeless, romantic elements that make for a magical day. Just add a touch of frost and a sprinkling of snow!Read More
