When I first met Amanda & Matt, they came to me from a recommendation and knew I was going to fall head over heels in love with their mix of Alice in Wonderland and Steampunk. I could only imagine what ideas they had up their sleeves and I was so excited!
Whimsical, wonderful and imaginative decorations everywhere!
Their creativity, craziness and sense of fun shouted from every angle of Hirst Priory. There was even a giant chess set and flamingo croquet in the garden! Cogs and clocks adorned anything and everything!
Their Ceremony was in the magical woodland area of Hirst Priory and it was like walking straight into Wonderland!
Amanda & Matt had already told me at their first meeting that they hated having photos taken. As crazy as they both are, they shy away from the camera and prefer natural shots. This is how I love to work best, capturing the real and raw emotion of the day.
I’d gotten to know them both pretty well, so much so that on their Wedding day I was made to feel like part of the family. They weren’t bothered about my camera one bit which meant they really relaxed and enjoyed themselves.
We laughed, we cried, we cried from laughing too much! This one was a Wedding that embodies what they’re all about! Love, family and having a bloody good time!
Huge thanks to Amanda & Matt for booking me for their special day! It’s definitely one to remember and one I loved more than I could ever imagine. These guys were the best!
North Lincolnshire Wedding Photographer Ealand Gate Wedding Venue
On the 19th May 2018, Lindsey & Reece were married at Ealand Gate, North Lincolnshire. Whilst everybody else was sat watching The Royal Wedding on the TV, we were celebrating a gloriously sunny day when these two lovely people tied the knot! Lindsey & Reece had decided way before Harry & Meghan that the 19th May was going to be their Wedding date, and no Royal Wedding was about to overshadow their day!
In the morning, I met Lindsey at her mothers house which was where she was getting ready. Lindsey was super calm and everyone was really relaxed and enjoying their pamper session with the girls from Head Quarterz for their beautiful hairstyles and Cherri Ann for make-up. We even had time for crumpets and to watch the Royal Wedding ourselves on the TV. Lindsey wore a stunning gown by The Ivory Gown at Ulceby, I absolutely loved the cowl neck detail to the back. Her bouquet was made from Comic book pages by Paper Bouquets to match their theme.
Lindsey & Reece wanted to put their own personal stamp on their day and Ealand Gate made a beautiful backdrop for it. The decorations had been put together by the couple themselves, I'm sure with a few other helping hands from family and friends :) The elegant flowers on the cake were made by Reece's Mum and the cake by Lindsey's Nanna. The theme of the day was based upon their favourite comic books, which perfectly reflected their joint interests as a couple. Bon Apetit provided the catering for their tasty Wedding breakfast and in the evening, Sweet-A-Fayre set up a yummy Nachos and Waffle stand to feed their guests in the evening.
Some of the decorations also held a more sentimental value, mini chalkboards of romantic quotes were placed around the venue and photos of their parents on their Wedding day were displayed on the wall. Julie was their Wedding co-ordinator who worked tirelessly to make sure the day ran smoothly and All Occasions Cars provided the stylish Mercedes (with air-con). Lindsey & Reece had a short drive around after the ceremony with some champers and to have a moment to themselves before being returned to their waiting guests for group photos. I had a brilliant day with these two, there were plenty of laughs and shenanigans, especially from the Groomsmen, and I went home with slightly burnt shoulders and a camera full of photos.
