Elaine & Dan had their ceremony in the Cotswolds at the beautiful Slaughter Manor House. 8 members of their close family attended & it was a lovely chilled, personal affair. The sun was shining all day, the surrounding area is quite breathtaking as you drive through. As a North East Wedding photographer its lovely to photograph around the UK and have new experiences at venues I might never have the chance to photograph at. I’ve photographed a few small personal ceremonies & I always really enjoy it. Slaughter Manor house was so stunning & it had beautiful spots for portraits. Elaine mentioned how she hated having her photo taken, which i get a lot from brides & I totally get it. I had to have my photo taken recently for some fresh marketing photos and wasn’t a fan of being in front of the camera. Thats why I make my couples feel as comfortable as possible whilst shooting & by just making it feel as natural as possible you don’t feel as though you’re being photographed & overly posed. Once I’d taken some portraits with them I left them to enjoy the rest of their night with their nearest & dearest.

Then two days later Elaine & Dan had their reception at their home in Gosforth. 2 giant marquees with 150+ friends and family to fill it. Street food, magicians, live music & a free bar! gave the wedding such a fun, relaxed vibe. They didn’t even let the rain get them down. For photographs it was all pure documentary, which I absolutely love. Zero posing & being taken away from their guests. Elaine & Dan were one of the most laid back, chilled couple I’ve ever photographed & I think it really shows in the photographs. I focused on the guests for their reception a lot & I really came away with some awesome moments.
