Lucie and Jay- Proposal Photography, Mexico

Sunrise Beach Proposal, Mexico Proposal photography is always something I’ve wanted to do. I was so pleased to be able to plan to capture this proposal on the beach. I was so happy when I found out that the best man from Kate and Ricky’s wedding was planning to propose to his girlfriend whilst abroad! We planned to get up early and head down to the beach to watch the sunrise. I got to the planned spot on the beach just before Lucie and Jay and managed to hide myself before they got there. They watched the sun rise over the ocean together. Then they took a stroll along the beach in the morning light glow where Jay got down on one knee! Lucie said yes! They walked back towards the beach bar where all their friends were waiting for them ready to celebrate with champagne! Thank you so much for letting me capture this awesome moment in your life!

Kate and Ricky- Ocean Riviera Paradise, Riviera Maya, Mexico!

Destination Wedding Photography Now Kate and Ricky’s wedding was one I’d be looking forward to for such a long time! These two decided to tie the knot in the beautiful Riviera Maya for a Mexico wedding. The idea came to them after watching their friends (Ricky’s best man) get married a few years earlier in the Dominican Republic. These two have such a lovely story. They first met as family friends, as their dads are total best buddies. One night Ricky was a little bit drunk and asked Kate to go out with just him, not their families too. The rest is history! I arrived on the Monday night at the beautiful Ocean Riviera Resort. I met with Kate and Ricky on the Tuesday (by the pool over a couple of cocktails) to discuss the wedding plans- I think all client meetings should be done this way right!? The wedding morning was a crazy blur, I split my time between the girls hotel block and the boys to capture both Kate and Ricky getting ready. The Ceremony They decided to change their ceremony from the beachfront to a private rooftop terrace overlooking palm trees towards the ocean. This was such a lovely idea as it was intimate for their guests only- away from the hustle of hotel life. The glass balcony surrounded the terrace to show off the view. Kate and Ricky wed under a white gazebo at 4:30pm in gorgeous Mexican sunlight surrounded by their closest friends and family. They even finger printed on their marriage certificate for authenticity in true Mexican style! Their drinks reception was set...

Rhian and Jonathan- Novotel Cardiff Centre, South Wales

Novotel Cardiff City Centre- South Wales Wedding It was a beautiful sunny April morning on Rhian and Jonathan’s Novotel Cardiff City Centre wedding. The Novotel Cardiff is a really quirky venue. It’s industrial and modern decor really sets it apart from other wedding venues around South Wales. These guys met in their local gym 15 years ago, got talking and the rest is history. “Jonathan was going to circuit classes with friends from his local rugby team and we all got chatting over the weeks. I didn’t really think anything of it until Jonathan started turning up in my other classes including fit ball! Perseverance definitely got the girl.” Jonathan actually proposed many years ago but they never got around to setting a date: “The first time he asked me, I was pregnant with our first son and Jonathan just in passing said that we should get married now. But life took over and we just never pinned down a place or a venue and time just flew by. In the meantime I lost three engagement rings and Jonathan swore he wouldn’t buy me a fourth! Then on Christmas day 2016, Jonathan got down on one knee and asked me to marry him with my gift as a forth engagement ring. This time he was determined that we would pick a date and venue and this time we finally did put us first!” The Wedding Day: Rhian had her best friends and their children as bridesmaids and flower girls. The girls wore beautiful white and silver bridesmaids dresses with added chain detailing on the back. The beautiful ceremony almost...
