Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood – Summer Wine
We seemed to be stuck in a winter that refused to pack up it’s things and leave to let spring in! (Got a slight glimpse of life at Winterfell for those of you who like us adore Game Of Thrones…) But this past week the sun, still shy, has started to reveal herself. And just in time as Laimonas and I have moved into our new flat, so our new sash windows beg for sunshine to pour through them!
T-shirts and shorts came out and our new neighbours even got a BBQ on the go. So I decided to pick a song that teases springs out. If you know us both, you know that we love music from all eras despite our youth. If you are having a spring/summer wedding, this song would suit the outdoors completely, whilst guests sipped on their champagne under the blue skies.
Indulge in a snack of strawberries & cherries and maybe even pinch an angels kiss this spring and relax to some Nancy Sinatra (Oh so cheesy, but who can’t resist some camembert?)
Peace & Love
The snow held back and the clouds parted especially for the loved up couple on this day and we were all thankful for that!
The pretty shades of terracotta took us all back to Italy where Jaimin asked for Seijal’s foreverness. And they also happened to be there at the same time as us!
Jaimin serenaded his Seijal, even though she is going to say I do, it’s nice when they don’t stop trying isn’t it?
We loved the couples idea to use painted vinyls for this epic shot!
Completely in love and so much fun too, we very much enjoyed this day in the park, it was like meeting with old friends. In a few short weeks we will be snapping the both of them getting married! So you’ll be seeing much more of this beautiful couple very soon!
Fivesies in onesies.

DeVotchka – How It Ends (Instrumental)
The title doesn’t suggest fitting for a wedding I know, which is why I have posted an instrumental of this beautiful track. However, I don’t think the actual song suggests what it appears to. And I have decided to change the meaning of ‘How It Ends’ to this: How It Ends is now different than before now. before now, I was unsure how it would end, but now I know how it will end. It will end with you and me, us and we.
Have I managed to completely convince you all that this song is not bad!?
Other than that, I think this song is beautiful, I would use it myself for a wedding video, I can really hear and see it working together well. The sound of strings is always uplifting at a wedding, but why not mix it up with something a little more folky rather than the traditional orchestral pieces that are generally used.
Or just hit play and enjoy this pretty piece of music.
Peace & Love,
We have been slightly out of touch on here haven’t we? So what have been been up to… We shot a wedding on Saturday in Sussex for Tessa and Mark, a fabulously fun couple who tied their life long knot in St Peter & St Pauls (I guess whoever named it couldn’t decide who was better?) church in Hellingly. Bridal preparations took place in the grand grounds of Peaks Manor. The girls in the uniquely built Oast House (a beautifully old house with 2 round towers that were used for drying out hops in the late 19th century I’ll have you know!) And the boys got ready in the The Wing (originally a cow shed!)
So much history on site, it was quite wonderful to walk around and soak it all up! The couple held their reception in a Teepee Tent (by Tentipi) which was sneakily deceiving on the exterior because inside it’s hobbit like front doors revealed a spacious, warm and fun tent with a hint of Moroccan inspiration in one corner, little leather stools, miniature tables and lanterns just like that of the lush outdoor seating areas in London Borough market!
The main attraction for all the guests had to be the huge open fire in the tent which really was used for it’s sole purpose, heat! Set in a large wooden box, it made for a perfect place to converse about this wonderful day and all it’s trimmings. And Tess’a dress was something to talk about! You’ll see when we upload the photos, absolutely stunning! She really was a beautiful bride!
We loved the speeches, they made us laugh so much we had to remember we were the photographers! But my favourite thing about this whole wedding, which is typical of me, was that it was a dog friendly event, so 4 dogs were running around inside the tent, stopping at whoever would give them attention and love, it really added that extra special touch. Everyone seemed very happy with them making their way around each table hoping someone, anyone, might drop a juicy piece of meat in the direction of their watering mouths.
10 out of 10 Tessa and Mark. We hope you are both enjoying your honeymoon! Whilst your’e soaking up the sun, we will be working on your photos, something to look forward to when you get back
Many of you ask how will you get your wedding photos… so… here is an example!
All our packages come with custom made DVD cases, which we print a photo chosen by you onto the cover / back and a separate photo for your discs. Even if you don’t want an album – you have a keepsake from your day! All the pictures will be individually worked on and have a vintage touch. You will have a license to print as much as you want (although we do have recommendations for quality printers should you need some advice).
And by the way… You get two discs!
To add to that, you and your guests can view (and purchase) all the pictures online on a password protected site. No more nagging from your Aunties, Uncles and Friends about making prints!
Adam Sandler – Grow Old With You
I have shamefully neglected my Pick Of The Week for such a long time, I’d like to say it’s because we had a rush of winter weddings in 2012 as well as being whisked away to Paris for Christmas, followed by an incredibly family busy New Year involving a cross country road trip back and fourth, but really there is no excuse good enough.
So! For Christmas, Laimonas bought me a Ukulele!! It’s possibly my favourite item in my life currently. In the past month I have been obsessively learning sweet little numbers on it, songs like Postcards from Italy – Beirut, Ho Hey – The Lumineers, Let It Be – The Beatles an so on…But my favourite by far has been Grow Old With You – Adam Sandler.
Who doesn’t love Adam Sandler? I think I have watched every film he has ever been in and The Wedding Singer is epic for it’s 80′s hits, but his adorable little song on the aeroplane at the end is just perfect. And thus my Pick Of The Month! Yes, I’m changing it up a bit.
A beautifully styled barn wedding, shot by our very own Tom Griffiths.
Mirror mirror, on the wall, I think we know who is the most beautiful of them all…
We love these two shots of the groom and his men, from formal to having a laugh with the lads.
