Claire + Tom

Woodland Weddings, Tring

claire + tom chose woodland weddings (tring) as their unique outdoor wedding venue. it’s pretty rare that i get to photograph an outdoor wedding ceremony but super fun when i do. outdoor ceremonies obviously get all the awesome natural light, which usually totally dies the minute you go inside a church or town hall. the whole day was in one part of the wood, so nobody had to worry about moving from venue to venue. a few guests even camped over night!

planning an outdoor wedding in the UK can be kinda risky…presuming you’re not a big fan of rain. so claire + tom did have *some* shelter in the form of an amazing tipi with cascading fairy lights + a freakin’ huge light up “OMG” sign. oh…and there was a swing! need i say anymore?

“Chris captured the whole essence of our day, the fun, the laughter and the love. When we got our photos back, we were both saying “how did he get that photo, I don’t remember him being there!”. He was so discreet, but then when he did interact with our guests, everyone loved him and felt really comfortable with him. After he got all the group shots, he just hung out with our guests and caught some hilarious moments from the speeches right through to the impromptu dance offs and silent disco. This guy has a unique gift for capturing emotion and we are so grateful we found such an incredible photographer.” – Claire and Tom

Charlotte + Dan | Curradine Barns Wedding

Curradine Barns Wedding.

Charlotte and Dan’s Curradine Barns wedding setting was a modern barn in Shrawley, West Midlands. It was such a fun day and even the weather played ball!

Charlotte got ready at Curradine Barns with her bridal squad, and the atmosphere was so calm. The ceremony was an intimate affair in the barn. The awesome beams of the barn framed the ceremony perfectly + Dan even managed to hold it together without crying. The reception was in the barn at the venue. They chose Curradine Barns because it has so many options and they just love it there. It was a fun wedding, which incorporated all sorts of quirky DIY elements. I love shooting Curradine Barns weddings because the surroundings are absolutely amazing. There’s such a variety of spots for photos within a 2 minute radius of the barn so I can get a really nice range of portraits.

They had a drinks reception in the afternoon, and a photobooth in the evening. Not just any live music but music by the one + only.Elton (kind of) John! They decorated the venue with so many quirky DIY features and tealights, because it’s so cosy.

The funniest part of the day was when the one + only Elton (kind of) John stepped up to play the night away, because he looked exactly like Elton + played a bunch of Elton bangers throughout the night. They also had a Doughnut tower cake, a popcorn machine + oven baked pizza during the party – it was so much fun!

“The Pearheads”

Wethele Manor Wedding

Wethele Manor is one of my favourite marquee wedding venues in the UK. I’ve been to Wethele Manor a few times now… hit the link if you’d like to see more Wethele Manor weddings

It’s surrounded by miles of countryside + the sun always seems to set perfectly over the fields. One of the things I get asked on the reg is “What makes an awesome wedding?” + Betty + Ed’s wedding defines my answer perfectly. It’s the people. Wethele Manor welcomes over 140 guests for this particular wedding. Every single person felt like they knew Betty + Ed their whole lives + every guest felt involved physically + emotionally with what was happening.

With wall to wall blue skies, they obviously had to have an outdoor wedding ceremony. They had some great readings, with friends playing music + a massive sing-a-long. I never realised how loud 140 people could sing?!?

The speeches were epic. Like…Proper amazing performances. Including an epic self-written rap from one of Betty’s 9 (!!!!) bridesmaids. Extra bonus points to Betty for also writing + delivering her speech. I enthusiastically salute any Bride that delivers her own speech…I can’t believe it’s 2018 + it’s still “unconventional” for the bride to speak but a Groom’s speech is totally “expected”.

I guess I should start by explaining the first photo. Betty’s maiden name is “Pearson” + Ed’s is “Whitehead” + I’ve been really enjoying their abbreviated name: “The Pearheads” so it would’ve been rude to not include a photo of them being a pair of…pears.
