I constantly thought last year that I needed to get better at blogging weddings. The bad news - I did not follow through on this at all. The good news - I now have lots of lovely weddings to share with you!
The first wedding from 2015 is possibly one of the most special for me personally. I have known Emily from my TV work for many years and she has always said to me that when she got married she would want me to document her day. She also works as an amazing make up artist and can be seen working at a few of my other weddings on the blog. Emily has, and continues to be, so supportive of my work, recommending me to her friends and colleagues and even to her own sister. So when the day came that her lovely boyfriend Tom proposed I hoped she hadn't changed her mind.
Needless to say Emily got in touch and asked me to photograph their wedding and in March last year they held a lovely, personal celebration at the lovely Battleaxes pub near Nailsea in North Somerset. Ever the workaholic, Emily did most of the make up for her bridesmaids, often multitasking (see banana photo) and enlisted friend and regular partner in crime Stacey Jade for hair duty. Flowers from the always amazing Rose Shed, Drawing on Emily's favourite seasonal flowers.
The day was always going to be very personal, a lot of fun and well organised. Emily is a production manager in her television career, these are the people who organise the shoots and deal with the money, so I wasn't surprised to receive a detailed schedule for the day. With styling by The Little Wedding Helper the venue looked great and the happy couple embraced the pub theme with personalised pork scratchings, a pub quiz and of course a massive illuminated sign from Lighthaus Events.
Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.
