A Romantic Setting

When Laura told me she was getting married in the same church as her parents did, it made this particular wedding all the more special.

The beautiful church was St Oswald's, Guiseley.

The beautiful church was St Oswald's, Guiseley.

I first met Laura at her sister Sarah's wedding in the Summer of 2016 so to be asked to go back to the family home and be part of Laura's bridal preparations was and easy yes! 

We had an early start that morning but luckily the sun came out, (well for the preparation time anyway) bacon sandwiches were handed around along with cups of tea, water and plenty of bubbles. Laura was relaxed and the house was full of laughter until we realised the hairdresser had gone but there were still flowers to put in the hair for all the girls... Panic not, or not that it showed, I decided to take control and get creative with the gypsophilia!

Laura's farther was a little more relaxed this time around and spent most of the morning chilling out with his morning brew taking in all the girly chatter and giggles and stories. One part of a wedding morning I love are hearing the stories.

Once finished, the bridal party went to the lawn which was surrounded by the immaculate and truly stunning garden. The girls tottered over trying not to sink in to the grass and Hollie worked her photographic magic. Love working with Hollie, her images are gorgeous.

Once all the photo's were done, it was time for the girls to leave and make their way to celebrate Laura's next chapter in her life. 

I'll leave you with these stunning images and you can see why when I saw Laura in her dress, the moment she turned, looked at me and giggled I had a tear in my eye.

A Country Shoot

Think golds and luxury combined with rustic, country elegance with a slight Downton Abbey twist.

On a very cold, crisp January morning, I set off to The Deerhouse at Swinton Park with my makeup kit,big jackets and boots to work with a fabulous team of wedding suppliers. This styled shoot was a little different as i was asked to be one of the models!!

The shoot was designed by Jane from JB Creatives and Amy from Greenhouse Florists
Stunning views over Masham and gorgeous countryside were just breathtaking, took you mind of the extreme temperatures...

The dresses were beautiful, bespoke with a little bit of vintage thrown into the designs. Claire from The Bridal Emporium dressed both Amy and myself in these stunning gowns complete with accessories. I must say I felt a million dollars that day.

When planning your wedding design and style, think outside the box and see what can be achieved.
