Last week Zoe & Joe tied the knot at Horwood House in Milton Keynes. It was the first wedding I’ve seen in a long time where the ceremony has been held outdoors! The ceremony was lovely and even the weather held off. The whole day ran so smoothly and it was clear that Zoe and Joe had a fabulous time! I found the guests were all lovely and 3 little girls seemed to love one of my catch phrases so much they were repeating it all day…. and all night! There were some hilarious moments during the speeches that even got me laughing and a photo to follow up one of those moments that the groom has no idea is coming! All in all there were some magical moments and below is one example of this fantastic wedding. I cannot wait to return the rest of this couples photos too them so stay tuned to Lunar on Facebook or the website to see more coming soon!

Lets all toast to this amazing couple, the new Mr & Mrs Dodson!

Last friday the gorgeous Poppy marry Johne Gee and I was honoured to be asked to capture what turned out to be a spectacular, and eventful wedding! I was joined on this shoot by Rob from rob and bekki photography Its not uncommon to have a wedding not go quite according to plan and this one was no exception. With 45mins to go there were issues with the dress at the house but with the help of the bridesmaids Poppy made it to the church! There was even a break in the weather after the ceremony for the location shoot at some local ruins! But the second we finished at the ruins the heavens opened up and boy did it rain…. and Rob and I were 5 minutes from the car. With no cover we ran like the wind but still got completely soaked! We were not worried about our camera’s as they were all ‘meant’ to be weather sealed. Not long after we got to the reception venue though both myself and Rob started having camera problems, but despite this, the show must go on and we managed to pull together and keep those camera’s clicking! But all these moments add up to create that story that is ‘their’ wedding day and they will remember these events for the rest of their lives!

Issues aside, the wedding was a ‘storm’ (pardon the pun). The cake was made by a good friend of Poppy and was truly amazing! Both Poppy and Johne looked amazing and so did the bridesmaids. Both Rob, myself and the 2 videographers all commented on how wonderfully happy, smiley and full of laughter the guests were! Myself and Rob had a great day and i have no doubt that Poppy and Johne had a phenomenal day!

So please raise a glass for the new Mr & Mrs Gee

Yesterday saw the marriage of David and Ann. The weather was clear but humid, regardless of this even ‘Doug’ the dog came fully dressed up in a suit!
Speaking of which, this is the first wedding i’ve witnessed where by a animal has delivered the rings! Well done Doug! I must apologise for startling him during the ceremony when i ran round the back of the stools to get that first kiss shot, and poor Doug was not ready for me! At least he got his own take away left overs meal delivered to his room on the canal boat!
There was a wonderful turn out of guests at the wedding who as always were lovely and took to my personality quickly! Some had traveled from quite some distance and even took on the french ‘fuel’ and ‘air traffic’ strikes to be there!

The cake was amazing and we even got a ride on a canal boat into a mile long tunnel which was very…very dark!
David & Ann clearly have a unique and strong love for each other and it’s these special bonds which can be so hard to find in life that I love to photograph.
Thank you for having me capture your special day, I look forward to presenting you with your memories!

Please stand for the new Mr & Mrs Peerless!

Yesterday saw the wedding of Natalie & Andrew Flitton at the Woburn Sculpture Gallery.
The venue was amazing. I can not begin to describe the beauty of the grounds, the setting and the attention to detail. But this was all belittled by the bride Natalie as she walked the isle. It was a moment of nostalgia as everything came together and Natalie graced the Gallery with her presence. Andrew had a permanent grin on his face all throughout the day. Natalie arrived by horse and cart which complimented the grounds perfectly and after the ceremony went out for a trot around the grounds of the gallery. Woburn did an amazing job of putting the details in place, one of which i really liked was the little animal teddies placed on seats of where all the children were sitting.
There were so many beautiful moments and photo’s but i can only share with you the one below for now.

Raise a glass for Mr & Mrs Flitton!

Yesterday saw the marriage of Charlie & Lewis at the Steventon House Hotel in Abingdon and what a lovely day it was. No wedding is complete without the ‘frantic panic’ as all hands went on deck to find the missing hairband and clip for the flower girl Sophie! Eventually it was found and only the nerves of the big day ahead was all Charlie had contend with. Meanwhile, Lewis arrived in a 1960’s VW camper van that had been jump started that very morning in order to get it there.
Traditionally, the bride is always late and Charlie did not stray away from tradition. But once she stepped into the the ceremony room you could see the uncontrollable smile from Lewis as pure joy took hold of him! Lewis, along with many of his guests came from an array of RAF, Royal Marines and the Navy and all came in uniform. The military dress looked amazing and the lad’s were all in good spirits. Special thanks to Royal Marine ‘Mich’ for helping with the group shots! That J.D and coke was well deserved!

Despite the cold, everyone had a wonderful day filled with amazing memories, moments, speeches and fun! Of course the evening was not over until the lad’s had jumped started the VW again to get it home. I can tell you it’s not easy pushing a large vehicle like that up to speed on gravel while ‘slightly’ under the influence, but after two attempts the guys got it going! Well done gents!

So all that remains to say is congratulations to Charlie and Lewis on their marriage and all the best for the future! Thank you for choosing Lunar to capture your special day!
