Lianne & Scott

An all warm black & white style post today, just because we felt like it and it looks fab.

A few weeks ago we were just down the road at Lianne & Scott's wedding at Smalley & Breadsall Priory. We got some nice getting ready shots in the lovely bright kitchen diner area of their place, and check out the heavenly light on that dress hanging up all ready for action.

This is Finn, and Finn had managed to fall over a couple of days previously, leaving him with a whacking great booboo on his forehead, which for most shots later on we retouched, but we kind of thought that it ought to be on some shots as a true record of the day.

We wandered up to the church to meet up with the bridesmaids, some of whom were less sure of us than others.

During the ceremony we were discreetly tucked away at the back of the church, ready for a nice shot to present itself. After the ceremony was finished we got some family shots outside, and also spent a little time grabbing some informal photographs too. The kids stole the show!

With a vintage car on hand, and a front door like this, you simply have to make use of it for a smiley posy picture. This is the wonderful Breadsall Priory.

Then we spent some more time floating around for informal shots, and yes, the kids stole the show :)

We finished off by walking a very obliging Bride & Groom around the grounds to get as many shots of the gardens as we could before dinner.

Congratulations Lianne & Scott!

Emma & Andrew

A few weeks ago I got to visit one of my favourite, 'non-regular' venues. We only get to to go to Sutton Bonington Hall but a couple of times a year, so here was another treat in store.

Emma was getting ready upstairs so our first stop was to say hello and grab a few shots of details, bits and bobs, and things happening. The available light was just perfect so we managed to keep a very low profile without using flash, and let everybody get on with what they were getting on with.

Today was a bit extra special because it was the first time I had been to a wedding at Sutton Bonington Church - which is literally just down the road from the Hall, so everybody just walked everywhere! After meeting the fellas at church, I walked back to the Hall to catch the bridesmaids leaving.

And then walked back again to see Emma & her dad!

After the ceremony we had to organise a confetti throwing picture, and then, you guessed it, we walked back to the Hall for a drinks reception and photographs in the garden.

One other thing I love about Sutton Bonington is how they happily let me climb out of a bathroom window onto the roof to capture this sort of informal 'crowd-around' shot of the whole wedding party.

Soon enough I put Emma & Andrew to work having them pose here and there and everywhere for some shots to show off the fantastic gardens and grounds.

It was a glorious sunny day and Andy's best man made a fantastic assistant putting the reflector to good use in all of these shots.

I don't think I've ever been anywhere else where we can get a shot to include the church and the reception hall in the same picture, but we managed it today.

Congratulations Emma & Andy!
