Wedding photos at Shottle Hall - Dolly and Graham

Graham and Dolly is very unique couple - this was their second wedding. The first one, for close family, we photographed almost a year ago.
As usually, we began from groom's shooting then captured bride's preparation and covered the ceremony and reception. Many things were unique at this wedding, for example, baskets for flower girls were handmade by Dolly. Bridesmaids and flower girls were very excited by beauty of the bride, the wedding dress and the whole atmosphere.
The ceremony was held at St Mary's church - a beautiful church in Derby city centre after which everyone went to Shottle Hall to celebrate the event. We had a little walk with Graham and Dolly and then their friends joined us.
I always pay attention to flowers. This time, I think, everything was particular in harmony: from the bride flowers to church and venue decoration, and also I liked the cake design.

Wedding photos at Rockingham Castle - Marc and Gaby

The first autumn wedding of this year was accompanied by sunny summer weather.
The wedding of Marc and Gaby was held in absolutely stunning venue, Rockingham Castle, a castle with more than 900 years of living history. They organised a great entertainment for their guests, a falconry show with falcons and owls, and had a creative wedding 'cheese cake' - see pictures below. It was a very touching moment during the ceremony when a little boy brought the rings - he was very proud about that!

Pre-wedding photos of Becky and Alex in Birmingham

Becky and Alex really like pets - so much that we decided to have their pre-wedding shoot with their dog Darcy (we could not take all of the pets to the shoot :) ). That was something really interesting to do and so we got together at Birmingham suburbs one afternoon for the shoot. Darcy, a very friendly dog, was running around Becky and Alex and it was sometimes not very easy to capture her still :)

During the shoot we had dramatically changing weather from blue sky to dark rain clouds but we were prepared for this and did not stop when rain started. Becky and Alex were rewarded with a beautiful rainbow as you can see on the pictures. Thank you guys for not being afraid of that rainy weather!

Pre-wedding photos of Rachel and Donovan at Allestree Park, Derby

We really enjoyed this pre-wedding photoshoot with Rachel and Donovan - they prepared very stylish outfits and were ready to be photographed even when it rained! So we had to turn rain to our advantage and did few shots with umbrella as part of the picture :) Enjoy the pictures and keep coming back to our blog - their wedding day and wedding photos are yet to come!

Wedding photographs in Ettington Park Hotel - Sarah & Chris

Following my recent post, I'm glad to share wedding photographs of Sarah and Chris taken in Ettington Park Hotel where the wedding was held.
We started shooting from groom's preparations, then captured bride getting ready and the ceremony, followed by a walk around the hotel. Stylish interior and exterior of the hotel gave lots of opportunities for nice pictures. The weather was very good during the day and we were lucky to capture last rays of sunset.
Chris and Sarah, thank you for your time spent with us - you were great and the atmosphere of your wedding day was just amazing.

Pre-wedding shoot of Sarah and Chris in Elvaston Castle Park

Although Sarah and Chris live at Australia, the technologies of 21st century helped us to find each other and discuss all the wedding day details. Because they only had limited time of being in England, we organised their pre-wedding shoot just a week before their wedding (the wedding pictures to come!). For the shoot, we've chosen Elvaston Castle Park - beautiful place with a lot in it. Although the weather gave us a little of bit of heavy rain just at the beginning, the skies cleared later making the pictures even more colourful and alive. Guys, thank you for not worrying about the rain - I think the weather finally rewarded you with beautiful sky.

Kids photoshoot with Elena

This was a very interesting photo shoot. Children always require a special approach and this shoot was not an exception - both girls were different and we had to be quick so that capture their instantly changing emotions. Many thanks to Elena who invited us to photograph her niece and goddaughter - we had great time and lots of fun with these lovely kids.

Pregnancy photo shoot of Anna

I photographed wedding of Anna and Sergey last year, and this summer we met again but for different reason - they've decided to capture and memorise the last weeks of Anna's pregnancy. Most of the Anna's pictures we took at home and then photographed her with Sergey outside. The weather was lovely and we had very good time.

Guys, it was nice to see you again - here are some photographs from the photo shoot.

Portrait shoot of Svetlana

Another very interesting portrait shoot: Svetlana prepared for the photoshoot very well - she brought a lot of props and outfits, so we had something to play with and to create very different look of her. Although I've already photographed in this place, this time I looked at it differently. Here are the pictures which we've got.
