Kathryn & Param's Wedding at Breadsall Priory

There's a different look to the shots on here today, a definite exotic Eastern feel...

Sorry, I've spent ages thinking how to describe today's wedding shots without using a cliche, but I have to say it.

It's an 'East meets West' blog post today.


More of that there dress later on, but first we had some shots to get sorted of Param and the fellas arriving.

Eventually, after much preparation, Kathryn arrived looking stunning...

Kathryn & Param liked all of the more informal, documentary style shots we showed them, so that was approach we took throughout the their day.

The couple's young daughter joined them as a bridesmaid, but couldn't quite last the whole photo session, so we left her having a snooze on Grandma while we got some shots around the gardens in the glorious sunshine.

To finish up we managed to get a few smiles from mother & daughter, rounding off lovely day with a truly lovely couple.

Many congratulations Kathryn & Param!

Melinda & Richard's Wedding at Quarndon & Derby

We're in a Sepia toned sort of mood here today, and that may just show through in the photographs here. It was back in August when we visited Mel & Richard for their wedding at the lovely Quarndon Church, beginning first at home in Little Eaton.

Sometimes you can't beat getting in really close to show the almost abstract lines in the detail of a dress.

We hung around a short while until folks were starting to look like they were about ready, then, sandwich in hand courtesy of Mel, we bumbled over to church to see the chaps. Amazingly, when we arrived, they were striking this pose without any request from me.

OK, no they weren't.

Mel was super organised and had everything ready to make sure nobody was left seat-less.

Outside I managed to steal a lovely shot of a contemplative bridesmaid amid the hustle and bustle.

Then Mel arrived, and off we went.

Although it doesn't strictly feature a wedding happening, this is my fave shot from during the ceremony.

Then came the part I was really looking forward to, we took a break from the norm. While most of the guests made their way to the reception, Mel & Richard led close family and friends on a 2 minute drive, followed by a 10 minute walk up to a local beauty spot called Bunker's Hill.

Yes, 10 minutes walking along through woods, country paths, fields, and over stiles in a wedding dress - usually I would have to beg and plead with a Bride to do this and not expect a positive answer, but here was Mel insisting we all troop off! Some folks even brought their boots. This was my kind of afternoon :)

Apart from being absolutely lovely up there, it was also the place where the couple got engaged, and where Mel spent some of her childhood days playing, so it was really nice to make the detour and spend some time admiring the amazing views over Derbyshire.

"I can see my house from here!"

And guess what, we could see Mel's house, and her old Gran's place too. Wonderful.

After our walk in the countryside, we arrived in good time at the reception for drinks, speeches and dinner. Job well done.

Congratulations Mel & Richard!

Laura & Andy's Wedding at Kedleston Hall & Breadsall Priory

Getting to photograph at Kedleston Hall is always a bit of a treat it has to be said, so we were looking forward to the 12th August for Laura & Andy's big day there. Check out the amazing artwork by Laura & Andy's friend for their invites:

And the stunning flowers:

And the stunning, erm, fellas!

After which, the (even more) stunning bridesmaids arrived...

And while we're talking about stunning, how's this for the Bride making her entrance.

The saloon at Kedleston Hall always deserves the wide angle lens treatment, in this case we went right in to the max with the 15mm fisheye.

After ceremony we let everybody exit to the lawn while we snuck back inside to get a shot in the marble hallway.

We made a good trek around the grounds to get some amazing shots before making our way over to Breadsall Priory.

Congratulations Laura & Andy!
