One of our fave wedding venues. Check.
Bring the dog to the wedding. Check.
Family & friends up for a laugh and making us feel totally welcome. Check.
Totally cool, easy-going, friendly couple. Check!
Bride’s dad singing The Backstreet Boys… see below…


They got married at a church in Hammerwich and we were told “NO PHOTOGRAPHS DURING THE SERVICE” by the vicar. Grrrrrr!!

We like to break the rules (with the help of long lenses) 😉


Great cake. Check.


An entourage of groomsmen. Check.


Ian Stuart dress. Check.


Shelley’s dad gave a great speech..


…and scored pretty well!


The evening reception was great fun. The band were rockin’ and both the bride and groom got on the mic..


But the crowning glory came when, at 11pm, the bride’s Dad insisted the DJ play “Backstreet’s Back” by the Backstreet Boys, to which he knew every word and even a few choice dance moves!


“Everybody…. yeah yeah”


We even convinced them to brave freezing temperatures so that we could get this one…


As you can tell, this was the kind of wedding we love being involved with. Just great fun :)

We’ll be posting their Fun Booth photos here soon too so watch this space….

Thanks to the lovely Anna for helping me out on the day again and thanks and big congrats to Shelley & Daniel for having us along to such a great day.

    what the eff w/ that last but one shot with the lights?!?! freakin’ awesome stuff.

  2. Wonderful set of pictures. Thank goodness you managed to get some shots in the church despite the “photo ban”. Such a difficult situation as you know that one of the guests will be taking pictures. Love the wedding cake and the whole atmosphere of the wedding. And they seem such a fun couple!

  3. Great set of images – LOVE the tricksy shot! Are you going to tell us how you did it?! Manual flash, bulb and super-imposed flashes??! R

    Hey Rosie/Chris :)
    It’s a long exposure, tripod shot. The “stars” were made using hand-held speedlights although the top “star” is actually the moon :)
