Because Claire and Rob will get married next spring, we decided that it would be great to do their pre-wedding shoot in …
This post continues a series of our autumn photo shoots. This time I would like to share with you pre-wedding session of Tia and Jessary, a very cheerful and lively couple.
This pre-wedding shoot was a very special and I’ll tell you why. Tia and Jessary are originally from Taiwan. According to Taiwanese traditions, a pre-wedding shoot is a very important part of the wedding – in fact, in terms of photography the couple treats the pre-wedding shoot as the most important day of their wedding. So we had the whole day dedicated to photography!!
Tia and Jessary prepared very well for this day: a few different dresses and accessories for Tia, two suites for Jessary and many other small things. As for location, they chose several places in the West Midlands: University of Birmingham, Blenheim Palace and Birmingham City Centre.
Despite few rain drops, the weather was kind to us, the autumn colours were just astonishing and the atmosphere during the photoshoot was just amazing! Tia, Jessary, thank you very much for your time, smiles and excellent mood during the day!
Lucy and Alex were photographed in two different places, different outfits. At first location, Elvaston Castle Country Park nearby Derby, Lucy and Alex were dressed a bit more formally – the atmosphere at these pictures is more romantic. The second part of the session was done at another Derby park, this time guys were in casual.
As you can see, we had lots of fun during the shoot. Lucy, Alex, thanks for your lively mood – that was great to photograph you!
Following the recently posted pre-wedding pictures of Rachel and Donovan (click here), I’m glad to share with you their wedding pictures.
Despite late October, the weather during the wedding day was just perfect – sunny and warm. The Ceremony was organised in the Derby Cathedral – a magnificent building located right in the historical Cathedral Quarter of Derby.
The reception and wedding breakfast were held not far away – in Eastwood Hall where we had some time to walk around and take sunny and beautiful pictures.
Rachel and Donovan chose purple colours for their reception – you can see how beutifully the tables were decorated. Many thanks to Jen, wedding planner from Chapter 16, for organisation and help during the wedding day.
Rachel and Donavan, it was pleasure to photograph you – thank you for your time and readiness to be photographed even at evening time. All the best to you!

Graham and Dolly are very unique couple – this was their second wedding. The first one, for close family, we photographed almost a year ago.
As usually, we began from groom’s shooting then captured bride’s preparation and covered the ceremony and reception. Many things were unique at this wedding, for example, baskets for flower girls were handmade by Dolly. Bridesmaids and flower girls were very excited by beauty of the bride, the wedding dress and the whole atmosphere.
The ceremony was held at St Mary’s church – a beautiful church in Derby city centre after which everyone went to Shottle Hall to celebrate the event. We had a little walk with Graham and Dolly and then their friends joined us.
I always pay attention to flowers. This time, I think, everything was particular in harmony: from the bride flowers to church and venue decoration, and also I liked the cake design.

The first autumn wedding of this year was accompanied by sunny summer weather.
The wedding of Marc and Gaby was held in absolutely stunning venue, Rockingham Castle, a castle with more than 900 years of living history. They organised a great entertainment for their guests, a falconry show with falcons and owls, and had a creative wedding ‘cheese cake’ – see pictures below. It was a very touching moment during the ceremony when a little boy brought the rings – he was very proud about that!
Becky and Alex really like pets – so much that they decided to have their pre-wedding shoot with their dog Darcy (we could not take all of the pets to the shoot 🙂 ). That was something really interesting to do and so we got together at Birmingham suburbs one afternoon for the shoot. Darcy, a very friendly dog, was running around Becky and Alex and it was sometimes not very easy to capture her still 🙂
During the shoot we had dramatically changing weather from blue sky to dark rain clouds but we were prepared for this and did not stop when rain started. Becky and Alex were rewarded with a beautiful rainbow as you can see on the pictures. Thank you guys for not being afraid of that rainy weather!
Following my recent post, I’m glad to share wedding photographs of Sarah and Chris taken in Ettington Park Hotel where the wedding was held.
We started shooting from groom’s preparations, then captured bride getting ready and the ceremony, followed by a walk around the hotel. Stylish interior and exterior of the hotel gave lots of opportunities for nice pictures. The weather was very good during the day and we were lucky to capture last rays of sunset.
Chris and Sarah, thank you for your time spent with us – you were great and the atmosphere of your wedding day was just amazing.
Although Sarah and Chris live at Australia, the technologies of 21st century helped us to find each other and discuss all the wedding day details. Because they only had limited time of being in England, we organised their pre-wedding shoot just a week before their wedding (the wedding pictures to come!). For the shoot, we’ve chosen Elvaston Castle Park – beautiful place with a lot in it. Although the weather gave us a little of bit of heavy rain just at the beginning, the skies cleared later making the pictures even more colourful and alive. Guys, thank you for not worrying about the rain – I think the weather finally rewarded you with beautiful sky.
You should already be familiar with this couple – the pictures from their pre-wedding shoot were posted before (see this link). This post is about their wedding.
The wedding ceremony was organised at a nice and cosy church after which everyone moved to Stapleford Park for reception and wedding breakfast. Stapleford Park was a great choice – because of amazing interior and beautiful garden, this place is excellent for shooting a wedding. We were lucky with the weather and had time to photograph both inside and outside.
Many thanks to Jackie and Matthew – they were as brilliant as during the pre-wedding shoot.
