My love for the ocean and beaches is what spurred this gradual change in my attitude towards reducing plastic, waste and the ethical repercussions of many products which we use daily. So I realised that combining these two things, the beauty of the ocean and my tenacity for waste reduction I had at my fingertips an idea which, to my knowledge has never before been approached by a photographer in the wedding industry to this level. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wanted to create a completely eco-friendly, ethical, plastic free, styled bridal shoot inspired by our beautiful oceans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And that’s precisely what I did! And today, that shoot is live over on @mrandmrsunique <3 I am so made up that it was accepted on such an awesome wedding blog that is making such huge positive strides in the industry.

‘I know, I can tell you anything. You won’t just you’re just listening ...’
⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘I know, I can tell you anything. You won’t just you’re just listening ...’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This gorgeous couple planned their day to perfection. Even down to including one of their favourite songs during their ceremony. They chose to play a full song just after their vows and first kiss so they could enjoy every second of their ceremony instead of rushing through it. They cried, they laughed, they kissed and they hugged. It was a beautiful moment, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. They even made this ice Queen tear up. It was a pretty genius idea if you ask me. So often ceremonies are rushed and you never get chance to really stop and realise that right in that moment you are dedicating yourself to the one you love, forever. It’s a yes from me - I LOVED it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ______________________________________________________________ #swedenweddingphotographer#swedishwedding#barnwedding#bohowedding#bohemianbride#outdoorwedding#barnceremony#brideandgroom#coupleportraits#destinationweddingphotographer#londonweddingphotographer#kentweddingphotographer#manchesterweddingphotographer#weddinginspiration#weddingplanner#weddinginspo#sloveniaweddingphotographer#justengaged#engagedlife#engaged#weddingphotographer#realwedding#weddingideas#freespirit#rockmywedding#isaidyes#swedenphotographer#stockholmphotographer#firstkiss#scotlandweddingphotographer

Did you know it’s super easy to create an eco friendly wedding? 🍃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s all about reducing the need to buy new things, and recycling what we already have, as well as a little bit of dedicated research to find some amazing suppliers who can create ethically made products! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For now though, I’m going to make it really easy for you and share with you all the amazing suppliers who helped make my fully eco friendly shoot come to life! Each one worked tirelessly to make this shoot fully ethical, sustainable and eco friendly.

Be honest does the idea of couple portraits fill you with dread? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be honest does the idea of couple portraits fill you with dread? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes? Well you aren’t alone! Most of my couples I speak to, explain that they hate being in front of the camera and are super nervous about the idea of their portrait session. Well....fear not! Because I’m here to tell you that it can be quite a fun experience (or so I’m told). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s a grand total of 30 minutes!! That’s it. But it’s a lovely 30 minutes spent having a wander, spending some much needed alone time together, and exploring your chosen venue/destination, and having fun whilst you are at it!! BONUS!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s no posing, no awkwardness, just the three of us, chatting, laughing and being ourselves. I wouldn’t want you to be any other way. There’s no standing still (well unless it’s one of those too cool for school edgy shots), there’s no smiling straight at the camera and saying cheese, and there defo ain’t no “look into each other’s eyes lovingly” 🤢 I encourage you to move around, cuddle, kiss, run, tickle, joke, swear and do whatever else comes naturally — that’s the secret. Just being yourselves! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #weddingphotographer#brideandgroom#weddingportraits#londonweddingphotographer#kentweddingphotographer#berkshireweddingphotographer#leedsweddingphotographer#weddinginspiration#atelierpronovias#pronovias#weddingdress#weddinggown#bridalstyle#bridestyle#justengaged#utterlyengaged#weddingplanning#weddinginspo#liverpoolweddingphotographer#swedenweddingphotographer#sloveniaweddingphotographer#lakebledweddingphotographer#destinationweddingphotographer#scotlandweddingphotographer#yorkshireweddingphotographer#momentsovermountains#belovedstories#rockmywedding#lovemydress

Have you noticed you never see a ‘cake cutting’ shot on my Instagram, blog or Facebook? It’s mostly because it’s a wee bit too formal for me. Don’t get me wrong if you want it, I’ll do it. But for me, this is way more fun, realistic and in the spirit of a wedding! And it’s much more likely to end up one of my favourite snaps. I find formal cake cuttings a little awkward. Don’t you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like, how are you meant to stand? How do you even cut a cake? What do you do with your hands? 😂 Just smoosh it in your faces and enjoy —that’s what I say!! 🍰 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ____________________________________________________________ #documentaryweddingphotographer#candidphotography#weddingphotographer#destinationweddingphotographer#swedishwedding#swedenweddingphotographer#sloveniaweddingphotographer#justengaged#utterlyengaged#engagedlife#londonweddingphotographer#kentweddingphotographer#scotlandweddingphotographer#manchesterweddingphotographer#brideandgroom#barnwedding#outdoorwedding#weddingplanner#radlovestories#radstorytellers#momentsovermountains#bohemianwedding#bohobride#bohowedding#belovedstories#adventurebride#adventurouswedding#backlessweddingdress#justmarriedjoy#freespirit

Oh the minimal styling..... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you hear the good news? The lovely Hannah of @theconsciousbride has only gone and added me to her Conscious Collective! A wedding recommendation list of suppliers who are dedicated to transforming weddings into beautiful, ethical and eco friendly affairs — that’s me folks! I’m super honoured that she included me in this list of amazing folks from the wedding industry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s a another cheeky sneak peek from my full eco friendly styled shoot back in April.

I might gush over the beautiful portraits, the intimate romantic portraits which I love so much. But shots like this always have a special place in my photography heart. Pure, documentary moments. Snap shots which give you a small insight into an otherwise private moment during a busy overwhelming wedding day 🖤 those shots are my all time favourite. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ______________________________________________________________ #documentaryweddingphotographer#candidweddingphotographer#leedsweddingphotographer#londonweddingphotographer#cotswoldsweddingphotographer#kentweddingphotographer#manchesterweddingphotographer#blackandwhite#candid#halfpennylondon#gardenpartywedding#bridalstyle#bridalfashion#liverpoolweddingphotographer#scotlandweddingphotographer#rockmywedding#lovemydress#bridestyle#utterlyengaged#adventurouslovestories#fearlessphotographer#lookslikefilmweddings#junebugweddings#photobugcommunity#destinationweddingitaly#destinationweddingphotographer#belovedstories#freespirit#yorkshirewedding#elegantwedding
