Hailey and Neil married at the beautiful Eslington Villa in Gateshead – a little green haven in the middle of a busy town. These two, and their little girl Ruby, were full of smiles and love all day – it was a real pleasure to be part of such a relaxed and family-orientated day. Here are a few previews…
Another absolutely glorious wedding at York Maze – a new favourite venue of mine after shooting there last month too. A sequinned wedding dress, gypsophilia and metallic details, Budvar, shouting through hay bales, jumping on an abandoned bus, Jagerbombs, feeding the goats and disco dancing.. Here is a preview from Emma and Shaun’s wedding.

What to say.. Grahame and Yulia’s wedding was just beautiful. They married in Brielle in The Netherlands and I was over the moon to be asked to go over and photograph their day. This beautiful little town was celebrating the WWII veterans on the day they married which meant the streets were already lined with bunting; and these two, together with their gorgeous boy Thomas and guests from all over the world, celebrated at a local restaurant just a short walk from the ceremony. Here is a preview and I’ll be sharing more very soon! All rights reserved. Copyright Sally T Photography.
I love a city centre wedding. I love that the world and bustle is going on as it usually would except that there is something incredibly special happening right in the middle of it all. Natalie and Stuart were so chilled out and really didn’t want any unnecessary fuss.. they had their children, extended family and friends around them and in spite of the everyday wobbles, organising everyone, nappy changes and feeding times.. there was something so poignant and special going on simultaneously. Here is a little preview from their Manchester Hacienda-themed wedding at the Albert Square Chop House.
Ahh.. it was so lovely to spend the day with Helen, Colin and bump while they tied the knot. They married amongst only very close friends and family in a wonderfully relaxed and intimate day, then celebrated with drinks on the quayside and a meal at the top of The Baltic, overlooking Newcastle over the river. I always think it’s so special when a couple get married while they’re expecting, it’s the beginning of a marriage and marks the start of a family all in one. Here is how it looked..
They invited all their guests to scrumptious little Nieve’s christening (only a handful of people knew what was about to happen) and once everyone had arrived and was waiting inside the church, the doors opened and the three of them walked down the aisle together – it was amazing to see guests’ shocked and happy faces, gasps, cheers and tears. This was one of the most special days and it was amazing to be part of it. Here are a few of my favourites from their day..
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..
