Sarah & Alex’s Halloween wedding

This wedding rocked! I have been looking forward to Sarah & Alex’s Halloween wedding all year. I love photographing weddings that are unique and personal to the couple, and it was obvious when I met them that they weren’t going to do things the traditional way. Sarah surprised everyone in a white wedding dress (ok so thats pretty traditional, but most would say its an alternative for her) and rocked it with knee high Converse all stars, diamante spider jewellery and of course her tattooes proudly on show. Alex went all Doctor Who in a dark suit and matching converse. They carried a purple and black spooky theme throughout, with bridesmaids in 50s style spiderweb lace dresses and the men in black suits and shirts and spiderweb ties. The reception venue, Kings Court, was transformed into a spooky haunted house, complete with Lurch serving up drinks.

 Anyway, I could go on describing things but pictures are much better. I’m having a hard time going through and picking out some sneak previews because there were so many details and great things to photograph but here’s a few to get you going. The full gallery is now online for friends and family.

Sarah & Alex- Many congratulations, thanks for being a LOT of fun. I hope you had a rocking wedding and wish you a lot of fun and happines for the future!
