Another fab Wedding by Jules & Sue

Lucy and Ian get married Lake district wedding

Last weekend was our second location wedding in October and this time we were off to the beautiful Lake Windermere for the wedding of Ian and Lucy. As a remarkable coincidence, just like the last wedding Ian is also a wedding photographer too.

I should start by saying that Sue and I had the most amazing weekend with Ian and Lucy, we love you guys and spending time getting to know you better too.

We have been excited about this wedding ever since Ian called to book, Ian took a few of our photo workshops a few years back so we knew we would all get on great.

We left home Friday morning for what turned out to be a gruelling 8 hour trip to the Lakes, But a few ciders later and a good nights sleep we were ready to go enjoy the wedding day. We drove to the beautiful Cragwood Country House Hotel which was simply breathtaking and was greeted by Ian, shown around then had a coffee. Sue and I then started grabbing a few details whilst getting to know people at the wedding.

We spent a couple of hours with Lucy and the girl’s for the preparation shots and details as well as Ian who was nervously walking the hotel grounds trying to keep busy, I’m pretty sure we should have given him a fishing rod for a few hours, that would have worked.

The ceremony was beautiful and a little humour which always helps and then afterwards we spilt outside onto the patio for a few photos. The weather was warm and misty but thankfully the rain had stopped. Down to the lake for some photos and a few more around the grounds then into the wedding breakfast. The food, just like the service was outstanding and enjoyed by all. A very relaxed wedding breakfast followed by 3 speeches and coffee.

Later we enjoyed dancing, photo booth and cake, lots and lots of cake 🙂

This was a superb wedding with totally awesome people and we loved every minute of it. There is something pretty special about getting to know our couples and we are very lucky having the time to do just that. We both love our wedding and would not change a thing.

Paul and Kirsten’s family shoot

Earlier this week his we had Paul and Kirsten visit us for a family shoot. They were reccomended by lots of people from facebook land and were really excited about their family photos with us.

We started with a few family groups in various different positions and then moved onto the children who were just adorable and definitely earned their “I smiled for Jules” stickers.

Lovely family and lovely shoot. We are still offering a full shoot for upto 6 people with changes of outfit and all of the high resolution photos for only £200.

We offer great rates and even better for returning clients so why not message me below for details and start your own beautiful family album which you can add to each year and then in years to come you can sit down with the grand children and family and look back through the years.  Our studio is a professional studio with air conditioning, private parking and changing and bathroom facilities,  its not our home but we like to make it yours during your shoot.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with our toys, this make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos. The difference between us and a high street studio with a strict time limit is immeasurable because unlike them we never rush a shoot. We believe if people are comfortable and happy in our studio then they will come back again and again and its proved to work 🙂

It also helps that we both LOVE what we do………..

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if your looking for photos of yourself or your  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you

Courage and Jadine get married

Firstly apologies for the delay in posting this but Sue and I have just had our “end of season” break and a few days away.  Last Saturday we joined Jadine and Courage for their lovely wedding in Stockbridge Hampshire so a nice local once for us.  We set off from home extra early despite the 15 mile journey because it was the Romsey Show weekend but sad;ly it was horrendous weather and the show was very quiet and we drove straight past without issue, a blessing for us but with a tinge of sadness for those planning to exhibit or visit the show.

We arrived at Stockbridge and parked by the church for coffee before heading to Janine’s house for preps. We had a lot of fun with the girls and checking out the marquee for a few photos. Despite the weather we knew today was going to be a lot of fun.

After a while, we headed off to the Church to do a few arrival shots and I just love the “guests with brollies” because they do not expect a photographer to be stood in the teaming rain taking photos. Courage and his family arrived and we took a few formal shots and then Hannah one of our brides from a few years ago arrived with her children, such an unexpected  treat.  Jadine then arrived in a beautiful 70’s Rolls Royce which was owned by a friend and then we whisked her into the dry church. Once again we were given a very warm welcome by the church and offered the freedom to shoot wherever, Jadine was very nervous so we chose to shoot from the back today.

The ceremony was lovely and we were soon on our way our again. The rain had eased off a little so after some hugs and kisses we grabbed a few family shots at the church and then as the guests headed back to the Marquee we took Jadine and Courage down to the river test to a specially reserved private area for a few photos.

Back to the party we carried on with photos in and out of the heavy showers but that never stopped anyone enjoying themselves. We were all very well looked after and the smiles just kept coming.

Into dinner and speeches first, They were all very entertaining today and the best man/girl/woman’s especially so, Everybody loved the emoji joke

After dinner, we carried on inside and out for a few more photos whilst we waited for the céilidh band to setup and that was the first dance, Unusual but it worked very well for these too 🙂

Eat, drink and be married…..

Lovely day filled with lovely people and that’s what weddings are all about.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful wedding I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,
