Nic and Tim’s Spanish street party wedding

Photographing Nic and Tim’s wedding day in Spain couldn’t have been more wonderful. They rented a whole traditional Andalucian village for a week. Overlooking Lake Vinuela in the hills near Malaga, Los Castillejos retains an incredible rustic charm and was the perfect setting for the sunny street party the couple had dreamed of. Nic and Tim both have a great eye for style and details too so from the bunting and lanterns to the table decorations, it was all utterly gorgeous.

Claire and Tom’s domaine wedding near Nimes

Another day, another spectacular wedding in France. Photographing Claire and Tom’s day was a complete honour. Chateau de Campuget is is the heart of a prestigious vineyard near Nimes in the Languedoc. Deciding where to do their couple portraits after the ceremony was a dilemma – should we choose the avenue of old trees, by the old wine barrels and the vintage Citroen, in the vineyard, by the pool, by the gates with the horse, in Margo my trusty VW camper van who came along for the ride? … in the end in we had to do it all. Heavenly.

Nicci and Ben’s Languedoc olive grove wedding

I get to photograph weddings at some truly amazing places and I love them all. But there are a couple of venues that touch my heart in a special way and make me want to go back again and again. This place is one of them. Nicci and Ben along with their gorgeous little family held their celebrations at Mas St Germain aka Domaine de Montmel near Montpellier. Last time I photographed a wedding there I was struck by the awesome views of the Pic St Loup, by the surrounding olive groves and vineyards and by the lovely light. My memory was correct – it was incredible too for Nicci and Ben’s day. I was only there for a few hours but with this setting and a bride as beautiful as Nicci, it made for a heavenly visual feast.

Elisa and Stuart’s cute wedding in Charente, France

It’s amazing how different the same place can feel for two different weddings. Elisa and Stuart got married at Bellevue in the Charente region of France only a couple of days after Hayley and Adam (the last wedding I blogged – I’m getting a bit behind as it’s busy season). While the great venue and the landscape and of course the weather were the same for both and the atmosphere was full of joy and love on each day, the little details and the personalities of the bride and groom and their families and guests meant that Elisa and Stuart’s day had a completely different, very intimate feel. Adding their lively five year old daughter into the mix also gave it extra cuteness.

Hayley and Adam’s gorgeous Charente wedding

What a treat this wedding was. The always-lovely venue of Bellevue in the Charente region of France, combined with a really beautiful-in-every-way couple. Hayley and Adam are the first to admit that creativity isn’t their thing so they were really lucky to have fabulously talented friends who not only did Hayley’s hair for her but also put together all the details that added a special touch. For me though the main thing had to be Hayley and Adam, I mean just look at them!
