Last Summer Lauren + Clayton had a beautiful DIY outdoor wedding at Hyde Barn in the Cotswolds. With Pimms and a bouncy castle on the cards I knew it was gonna be a really relaxed fun summers day.
Lucy and Damien got married last autumn at the spectacular Chateau Lasfargues, which is a stunning venue in in the Lot et Garonne region in South West France. I loved photographing at Chateau Lasfargues, it was a total dream to shoot in. The surroundings are completely stunning and the building is so pretty. They chose to elope to France for the nice food, wine and weather and because it meant they could have a holiday with everyone they love too. Even when things didn't go to plan, like all that unexpected rain, everyone was super relaxed and having so much fun all day.
Thinking that you may need a second photographer included in your photography package? Two is better than one right? The answer totally depends on you, the size of your wedding and what you want covered, and what is possible with the time and venue(s). I usually work alone but I'm always happy to add a second shooter onto any of my wedding photography packages.
Considering having an unplugged wedding? What's that you say?!

When it comes to planning your wedding day it can be really handy too. As a wedding photographer though I always give a word of warning to couples planning their big day and are big Pinterest lovers - take what you see with a pinch of salt. Find out why here. . .
People often ask me what I LOVE to photograph most, and honestly my answer is always the same: people. They are why photographing weddings is the best thing ever to me, there's so much to shoot and no two are the same, even at the same venue. I love all weddings, no matter what kind. That said, I do have a wedding bucket list of sorts - here's a few off the top of my head. . .
