Lorna & Simon | Devonshire Fell, North Yorkshire

Lorna & Simon-284It’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..Lorna & Simon-1 Lorna & Simon-2 Lorna & Simon-4 Lorna & Simon-7 Lorna & Simon-10

Samantha & Michael | Matfen Hall, Northumberland

matfen-hall-wedding-northumberland-wedding-photographer-426

A few weeks before their wedding, I met Sam and Michael in their living room and poured over the scrapbook of wedding snippets and ideas that Sam had put together.. then spent the remaining weeks looking forward to what promised to be an amazingly styled, warm, lovingly hand-made wedding. It didn’t disappoint.. Sam and Michael are such a wonderfully welcoming couple, and I loved being part of their day. Sam looked out of this world in her fishtail gown with hand-painted shoes, Michael looked dapper in both his golf gear and his wedding suit, and the whole day was full of joy, laughter, tears (looking at you, here, Michael!) and love. Here are some favourites from their wedding at Matfen Hall in Northumberland last Summer.

2014

creative-wedding-photography-alternative-north-yorkshire-north-east-009So.. 2014! I can’t believe it’s gone so quickly and it only feels like last month when I was writing my last round up post for 2013.. I worry, like we all do, that everything is passing by in the blink of an eye but then again it’s exhilarating to have so much going on and however full and busy, the past 12 months have been packed with lovely stuff. I’ve been lucky enough to meet what feels like a million gorgeous couples, friends and families, be part of so much celebration, witness so much love and feel so much joy on such amazing days.

With 35 weddings, the past year has been my busiest yet.. All so different and all so incredibly special in their own way. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot weddings in Italy, Morocco and France.. Winter weddings, Summer weddings, weddings in tepees, weddings in fields, weddings in city centres, wonderfully chaotic days, one elopement, my first Indian Hindu wedding, two double weddings, a surprise wedding masquerading as a Christening, DIY weddings, intimate weddings, crazily colourful weddings, a few mum-to-be brides (one with twins!), barn weddings, made some stop motion wedding videos, shot in fancy hotels, had weddings in the sunshine and weddings in the pouring rain. I’ve loved each one in a completely different way and would like to thank all the gorgeous people I’ve worked with this year again for having me to be part of your days – Its been amazing to meet and spend time with you all, and making real lasting friendships with people along the way really is the best bonus ever on top of a career that I already love.

Amongst all the wonderful weddings, families, babies, personal trips, rolls of film, personal times and memories that have been made.. it’s been, at times, a pretty tough year and I’m really looking forward to everything slowing down a little more at the beginning of 2015. And, without this turning into some sort of ‘acceptance speech’, I’d like to openly thank my family and friends for helping me, as they always have done, with my little business along the way. Whether you’ve babysat my lovely little Vivienne, given me some honest critique or advice, made me a coffee (or poured me a G’n’T), rubbed my shoulders, picked me up or just taken me out for a break, I appreciate and love you all – thank you so much.

So, here are a few (well, more than just ‘a few’..) favourites from 2014. Going through the thousands and thousands of photos from the weddings, family shoots, commercial shoots, engagement shoots, maternity and newborn shoots took so long.. But I did so with a huge grin on my face and finally I’ve managed to narrow it down to what you’ll scroll through below. I hope you enjoy having a browse as much as I enjoyed putting this together, and if you have a few minutes I’d love to hear what you think.

Hope you’ve all had a great Christmas break and all the best for 2015!

All my love, Sally xx

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..

Steph & Theo | Crathorne Hall, North Yorkshire

Steph & Theo DONE -343Ahh 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!

Heather & Matthew | a beautiful, vintage-inspired Lancashire wedding

Heather & Matthew-185I have to say, I’m incredibly lucky in that I work with the most lovely couples.. and Heather and Matthew were right up there as just being the most wonderful people to spend the day with.

They married on a sunny August day amongst friends and family in beautiful Lancashire. This pair met at Teesside University, then realised that they had grown up a stone’s throw from each other back in their home village.

Things I loved about this day.. Heather’s Mum’s house full of knick-knacks, those Vivienne Westwood shoes, Heather’s foot tattoo in memory of her Dad, their cool-as-anything ex-bouncer Vicar, couple portraits at the bridge where Heather, her brother and her Dad used to go when they were younger, their chilled out pub reception, the fact that everyone sat and celebrated around the same table for dinner, grown up ‘flower girls’, not one but two wedding cakes, the bouncy castle….. and the fact that everyone brought their A-game to the dance floor! A wonderful day with truly wonderful people. Here are their photos..
Heather & Matthew-002 Heather & Matthew-007 Heather & Matthew-009 Heather & Matthew-013 Heather & Matthew-016 Heather & Matthew-018 Heather & Matthew-019 Heather & Matthew-020 Heather & Matthew-021 Heather & Matthew-022 Heather & Matthew-025 Heather & Matthew-027 Heather & Matthew-029 Heather & Matthew-031 Heather & Matthew-033 Heather & Matthew-034 Heather & Matthew-035 Heather & Matthew-037 Heather & Matthew-042 Heather & Matthew-047 Heather & Matthew-049 Heather & Matthew-054 Heather & Matthew-055 Heather & Matthew-061 Heather & Matthew-064 Heather & Matthew-067 Heather & Matthew-080 Heather & Matthew-086 Heather & Matthew-092 Heather & Matthew-099 Heather & Matthew-105 Heather & Matthew-113 Heather & Matthew-134 Heather & Matthew-147 Heather & Matthew-153 Heather & Matthew-173 Heather & Matthew-176 Heather & Matthew-183 Heather & Matthew-185 Heather & Matthew-188 Heather & Matthew-190 Heather & Matthew-194 Heather & Matthew-197 Heather & Matthew-202 Heather & Matthew-208 Heather & Matthew-209 Heather & Matthew-215 Heather & Matthew-216 Heather & Matthew-220 Heather & Matthew-221 Heather & Matthew-223 Heather & Matthew-226 Heather & Matthew-227 Heather & Matthew-232 Heather & Matthew-235 Heather & Matthew-239 Heather & Matthew-252 Heather & Matthew-275 Heather & Matthew-278 Heather & Matthew-284 Heather & Matthew-300 Heather & Matthew-314 Heather & Matthew-324 Heather & Matthew-346 Heather & Matthew-364 Heather & Matthew-370 Heather & Matthew-371 Heather & Matthew-375 Heather & Matthew-383 Heather & Matthew-384 Heather & Matthew-387 Heather & Matthew-397 Heather & Matthew-402 Heather & Matthew-404 Heather & Matthew-408 Heather & Matthew-411 Heather & Matthew-412 Heather & Matthew-423 Heather & Matthew-437 Heather & Matthew-443 Heather & Matthew-444 Heather & Matthew-450 Heather & Matthew-457 Heather & Matthew-465

 

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..

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…
