Dewsall Court Wedding Sparklers

Dewsall Court Wedding - Hannah & Gordon

Dewsall Court Wedding

I got to go back to the beautiful Dewsall Court for Hannah and Gordon's amazing wedding in December. If you haven't had a look at Dewsall Court for your wedding venue; then you should, this place is just stunning. Even on a cold, wet December day this venue oozes class. The main house is just as a country house should be, warm and cosy. The Wainhouse, where you can have your ceremony is absolutely stunning, lit with softlights and candlelight, it's beautiful. If you love candlelight you will love the decor for this wedding, walking towards the Wainhouse in the evening light, just looked breathtaking.

The Wedding.

Hannah and Gordon wanted their wedding to be relaxed, fun and about everyone being able to enjoy themselves. They didn't want staged photographs, just a bit of direction from me during their portraits. The whole day went superbly, their ceremony in the Wainhouse and then head back to the main house for canapés. A small number of group photographs and some quick portraits, along with the guys, just being guys.  After a quick speech from Hannah's Dad and a bit of music, it was sparkler time! The manic moment of sparklers being lit whilst everyone has a few drinks on board always makes me smile to myself.

Reception.

After the sparklers, everyone made their way back to the Wainhouse for the wedding breakfast. It was then back to the main house for desserts, espresso martinis and cupcakes which were for one of their close friends as a birthday surprise. The Mustangs played a few tunes and the partying got underway. After this, it was back to the Wainhouse for a Ceildh with Tweed in Bourbon, this looked like loads of fun! After the excitement of the Ceildh, the DJ kept the party alive into the early hours.

2018 Review

My 2018 Review

What a year that was!

I feel so fortunate to have been invited along to capture your love, tears and laughter and have had such a blast in doing so. So many moments to look back on and so many friendships made too. Every single one of you made my job the most enjoyable job I could wish for. I really do get the most amazing couples to work with and appreciate all of you so much.

Whenever I make my way to a wedding, I always have a clear head and have learnt to expect the unexpected. Sometimes what I do is photojournalism, sometimes during portraits I will create something a little different for you. Every single time though, I am pushing myself to do my best for you.

2018 was a year where we basked in glorious sunshine for long periods, then right in the middle of it we got soaked to remind us that we are British. 2018 was also the year that I got to shoot my first wedding in the USA.  I made my way to Huntington Beach California which was an awesome experience. If you are looking for a destination wedding photographer, get in touch as I'd love to hear from you. Most of all though, 2018 was the year that I got to share some great times with you all!

I have also been fortunate enough to work with some of the best wedding suppliers time and time again. I look forward to spending more time with you all in 2019 and meeting more of you too.

Enough with the words and on to some of my favourites from 2018. No generic slideshow with music you might hate, just a set of images that you can scroll through at your own pace.

Enjoy!
