Diana and Brett’s Scarborough Summer Wedding!


Hooray! Time to post Di & Brett’s awesome summer-y wedding!

I actually know Diana from a previous life (before all things photography took over!) when we used to work with each other, so I really was delighted when she got in touch after I’d met up with her and her very lovely Mum, Julie, to say that she’d love to book me to shoot hers and Brett’s special day.

Di & Brett were getting married in Scarborough itself before heading to Julie’s gorgeous house where they were having their reception in a marquee in the back garden. I started off my day meeting up with Di & the girls at Julie’s…

I love details. I’m becoming more and more obsessed with shoes, accessories and dresses!!!

I have to say, everyone was very relaxed in the morning…

On our way back to Julie’s, we stopped by the esplanade in Scarborough – this was something Diana had been keen on since we starting talking about how things on the day would work, so we made sure we got there!

I love the guys on the left of the frame! At first, in a slightly (very!) naive way, I’d sort of envisaged the esplanade being empty and there being this big romantic moment between Di & Brett with me there to capture it. But of course, on a beautifully sunny day there were loads of people around which quickly made me get back on track & remember what I always say to people about locations. You shoot a location for what it is. What was there at the time was what was really happening – why would you want to change or hide that? I think this image really tells a story and shows exactly what I mean by what I have said above…

The lads decided they wanted to do a ‘holding the bride’ shot – but they clearly hadn’t thought it through!!!
