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!

Laura & Scott’s Wedding at the Tithe Barn, Petersfield

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Reed!

The ducks swimming across the lawn outside the Tithe Barn were a good indication that the day’s proceedings would be confined to indoors, but the monsoon didn’t spoil a beautiful day. The wedding was very personal, combining traditional wedding details and something much more them– from Laura’s song during the signing of the register to the silly wigs and hats that livened up the evening reception. And how many wedding discos end with the bride and groom moshing?

Scott & Lolly, many congratulations, may you live happily ever after!

Lolly has a healthy obsession with shoes so she obviously had to have some amazing ones for her big day.

“Oh my god Lolly you’re a Bride”

This is my absolute favourite photo from the day. I just remember Cat blubbing “Oh my god Lolly, you’re a real bride!”

The Tithe Barn is a really impressive venue for a civil ceremony with that great arched ceiling.

Lolly’s an amazing singer. During the signing of the register she sang a beautiful song (sorry Lol, no idea what it was!) accompanied by best man Wayne on the guitar. They usually play in the metal band Apnia so I was so surprised the acoustic song was a reworkin of an Apnia original.
