Amy & Joel | Crow Hill, Marsden

Amy & Joel-594

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..

Hollie & Davide | Snod’s Edge, Northumberland

Hollie & Davide-487Hollie 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 & Mark {Preview}

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.west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-001 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-002 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-004 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-005 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-006 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-007 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-008 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-009 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-010 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-011 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-012 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-013 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-014 west-yorkshire-papakata-diy-wedding-015All rights reserved.

Hollie & Davide | Preview

Hollie came to chat at a wedding fair I did early last year.. and I remember thinking she was just an absolute doll. Plus she happy-danced when I said I was free for her wedding to Davide.. so I obviously loved her even more.

There is so much to say about their amazing day.. it was styled to perfection and full of personal touches and lovingly handmade bits and pieces.. the Italian spread was out of this world.. some seriously good disco dancing went down.. I drove away to the sound of music and celebration with a huge grin on my face from ear to ear.

Here is a little preview…

I helped out lovely lady Emily of Emily Hannah Photography over the Easter break – I shot Emily and James’ beautiful, handmade and heartfelt day at The Morritt near Barnard Castle on her behalf. It was a gorgeous day, full of family and friends.. the weather was glorious and it was a complete pleasure to be a part of this intimate wedding.

Jaclyn & Tim | North Yorkshire

Jaclyn & Tim-257In celebration of the weather getting very slightly warmer from each day to the next it feels fitting to head back to last Summer and blog Jaclyn and Tim’s beautiful farm and barn wedding. It was absolutely glorious weather, and so much effort had gone into transforming the barn into the amazing venue you’ll see below.. Tim grew up on the farm and when they showed me around when I went to meet them the barn was.. well.. full of what you’d expect to find in a working farm barn. They married at a church nearby and their beautiful son William  had his own special part to the day and was christened immediately afterwards. A real celebration of family, love and marriage.

Here is Jaclyn, Tim and William’s day..

The Wedding Institute {Sunday 28th April}

I never thought I’d be very interested in doing wedding fairs – having been to a few when I was engaged myself I always left feeling overwhelmed by the volume of suppliers, underwhelmed by their ideas, uninspired and empty handed – and I realise now not one of the suppliers we used for our own wedding came from one of the wedding fairs I attended. Everything seemed so old-hat, out-dated ideas were being sold as ‘classic’, everyone seemed to work by a colour scheme (and couldn’t understand that I didn’t have one.. and that my only ‘scheme’ was ‘mismatch’), I was seen as crazy for not wanting chair covers.. I wanted to make a lot of the elements myself.. I felt like I was looking in all the wrong places.

When my business started to grow I had couples and other photographers asking me if I exhibited, and I always said it wasn’t really part of my plan.. but as I grew a bit more confident in my work I realised I wouldn’t mind putting it out there a little more, but I didn’t really know where to start. I heard along the way that you should only advertise and exhibit in places you’d go yourself to look for a photographer – which immediately ruled out all the football stadium and huge function room wedding events in the area..

I knew if I wanted to bite the bullet and set up my first exhibitor’s stand it would have to be somewhere different, alternative, a bit more special and hopefully somewhere a bit more intimate than your average wedding fair.. with pretty stands.. and exhibitors and organisers who realise that you don’t need to do everything by tradition.. and understand that you can put your own stamp on your wedding day.. whatever that may be.. and give you a personal service.. and attendees can choose vendors, crafters, makers, bakers, photographers, florists, hair dressers and make up artists that don’t make couples feel like they were sitting on the production line of a wedding factory. This is when I realised the fair I’d been looking for was tucked away nearby in the beautiful Victorian seaside town of Saltburn. The Wedding Institute.537904_410006612409946_528545581_n

I enquired through the lovely Vicky Trainor (co-founder of the fair with Becky Mitchell) and luckily they had a spot available for their April fair. I snapped it up immediately. Then nerves kicked in a little bit… I scoured the internet for ideas for my stall and started to get organised..

I’m now in the process of sorting out flyers, I’ve had a few more sample albums made, prints are being printed, I’ve been sourcing and cleaning up frames and I’m persuading David that, on the day of the fair, he’s going to have to help me cart furniture from our home over to Saltburn Art School to set out in my space.. (he doesn’t really understand why I’m going to need to take our bedroom chest of drawers out of the house for the day.. then put everything back but I assure him  he’ll ‘get it’ when he sees it…)

I’m feeling all jittery, excited and nervous in a really good way, it’s a first-day-of-school type feeling..

So tell me, are you going to pop along and say hello?
