So.. it’s March already. This year has had a much welcomed quieter start for me and my little family. There’s been catching up with friends, catching up with each other, hibernating under blankets on the couch, lots of cooking, and generally relishing the simpler things. It’s going to be another chaotic year (for reasons which you’ll read about below!) and I’ve been consciously trying not to overdo everything so far this year, and have loved having a few days doing absolutely nothing at all.I’m going to try and put this without sounding like one of ‘those’ people.. but on top of enjoying a few simpler pleasures, my husband and I decided to try and actually look after ourselves a bit more this year and set a better example for our girl. Health kicks in the past for us have often been short-lived.. we are probably the worst people I know for snacking on the couch with beers and wine.. but we are hoping to make some decent long-term changes and feel the benefits this year. I’ve a long way to go but I’m hoping to be nice and strong by the time wedding season kicks in!
Right.. the big thing this year is moving house. Anyone who knows me will be thinking “Again?!” as we’ve been house-hopping for quite a while now.. But this time we’re hoping it’s for good as we’re buying for the first time. We are leaving much-loved Leeds back to North Yorkshire at the beginning of next month, and will be moving in with my (very kind and very patient!) in-laws for a few months in between. In a sort of sad farewell we’ve been trying to make the most of what this wonderful city has to offer while we’re still here in between packing everything up for storage.
AND.. in other news.. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few exciting photography commissions this year.. pushing me out of my comfort zone. I’ve really, really loved it. Here are little previews from the Chilli Cake Deli..

It’s that cold and grey time of year.. just before Spring kicks in and a little blossom appears to help lift us out of Winter.. To remedy the last of the grey days here is a little colour.. Last March Lorna and Simon married in beautiful North Yorkshire amongst wonderful friends and family. Their wedding had Spring flower details, lots of yellow, and a Krispy Kreme wedding cake – amazing. I first met Lorna when she was a bridesmaid for Steven and Natalie a few years before, and it was amazing to catch up and see her say ‘I do’ herself! Here are some favourite images from their day..
Hannah and Dan married in the beautiful Dordogne last August. They said their vows at the ‘Mairie’ in the next town, and then all the cars drove in a beeping procession to celebrate at a neighbouring village’s village hall. There was no theme.. just colour, lots of DIY, handmade, community efforts, camping afterwards, a striped wedding dress, spit roasted lambs, bunting made from every scrap of fabric from all corners of the family… it was just amazing in all it’s non-traditional-wedding-goodness. Here are some favourites, I also made them a little stop motion video which you can see here. All rights reserved. Copyright Sally T Photography.
Meet Amy and Joel. This lovely pair married at Crow Hill on a wet July day, but nothing took away from how wonderful it all was. Amy herself is in weddings and events so it came as no surprise that her wedding looked so beautifully styled – she had thought of every last detail and to see all her hard work come together was amazing.. But the most amazing thing was watching these two share their day with wonderful friends and family – everyone there was really rooting for them and it was a real celebration from start to finish. Here are their wedding pictures..
Ahh who’s feeling Christmassy? With a few days to go I thought it’d be the perfect time to share the gorgeous Winter wedding of Steph and Theo, who married in December at Crathorne Hall in North Yorkshire and TODAY are celebrating their first wedding anniversary (congratulations!!). These two make a wonderful couple, and Steph especially had put so much effort into making this day beautifully styled and perfectly thought-out – milk and cookies for the children, Christmas tree decoration favours (one is on my tree this year!), Wintery touches throughout and everything was just done with so much love and care. Here are some of my favourite images from their day – Merry Christmas!
Hollie and Davide really do know how to plan a wedding.. and how to make it one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. So much attention to detail, care and effort went into making their day completely beautiful and a real celebration of them and everything they love. I knew Hollie was going to have an amazingly hand-crafted and vintage inspired day but seeing it all come together and how joyous they were alongside their guests throughout the whole day really made my heart sing. They can put it all better than I can and you can read their words and thoughts about their wedding over on Love My Dress.
These two, quietly and contentedly perfect for each other, began their journey on a hot May day in deep Northumberland. Here are the photos to tell the story..
Sarah and Mark got married last Saturday! I met Sarah when we worked on a Summery shoot for her jewellery line, Penny Masquerade, shot (ironically) in freezing cold January.. Last Saturday was, in contrast, one of the most beautiful days, and it felt like their own mini festival with Pimms, Lavender Lemonade and ‘Sham-pagne’ on tap as guests hung out on the grass looking out at the Yorkshire countryside… As always, so much to say… but for now, here is a little preview.

It still feels like a dream… but I had an amazing trip all the way down to Morrocco for Nay and Dan’s wedding, which took place on an amazing villa a little drive out from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. There is so, so much to say about the whole trip.. but, for now, here is a little preview from what we got up to… All rights reserved. Copyright Sally T Photography.
