Kate & Matt

Kate and Matt were married recently at St Nicholas Church in Allestree, and then headed over to see our good friends at Morley Hayes for a great reception. We started the afternoon at home to get a few shots of the details and preparations.

We had a good time watching Kate negotiate the stairs for the first time in her dress!

Then it was off to church where we managed a couple of un-intrusive shots during the ceremony.

The weather was kind to us so we managed a few shots around the grounds at Morley before leaving everybody in peace just in time for dinner. Congratulations Kate & Matt!

Katie & Kieran

We had a good and interesting day with Katie & Kieran a few weeks ago. They had a simple but stylish ceremony at Ripley Register Office followed by one of the funkiest receptions of the year in a marquee.

The couple happily obliged any and all requests to walk through fields, climb over (and, amazingly, through!) fences and down lanes to get some lovely chilled out looking shots - all of which summed up their personalities perfectly.

As Katie & Kieran's mode of transport was a funky old VW camper van, it seemed fitting to make the most of this amazing find - another old camper van looking, well, somewhat weathered.

No village fair theme would be complete without strawberry scones and cream of course. And the wedding breakfast? Fish and chips all round with REAL newspaper tablecloths. Fantastic!

The guests all settled down for the speeches before the meal, just in time to miss a real humdinger (yes, that IS a word) of a storm. Check out the last shot below for those clouds...

See? Humdinger clouds. Told you.

Baverstock School

Last week we were trekking off down to Birmingham to shoot the prospectus for Baverstock School, with our lovely and talented friend Taj from Pebble Design.

The brief was simple enough, requiring contemporary shots of students in a positive environment enjoying learning and socialising. We used some quite harsh black and white, and cross process colour techniques to give a funky, fun and unique look to the shots.

Cara & Lee

We've spent a good deal of time at Horsley Lodge recently, which is absolutely fine by us as it's just super. We were there a few weeks ago for the wedding of Cara & Lee. Our shot of Lee and his best man erm, 'arriving' set the tone for the rest of the day.

Then we shot the page boys, when we caught them!

We knew we were in for a fun time.

Cara got ready for the wedding in the lovely little cottage in the grounds of the lodge so we had a wander over there for a few minutes.

After the wedding we had the chance to really make the most of the grounds, especially the ornamental lake and fountain.

And to finish we got some lovely shots of the personalised details around the wedding breakfast room, created by our friends at Event Heydays.

Congratulations Cara & Lee!
