Every now and then you get sent photos that make you realise just how nice it is when a couple personalise their big day. With small touches that reflect them or their life together in some way. Ahh all is right again.
Last year I posted Iona and Ian’s engagement shoot and I’m pleased that Wilson McSheffrey, Scottish based wedding photographers, have shared the couples wedding photos too!
Below, they share some info on shooting the day;
“Last summer seems like such a long time ago, but at this time of year we like to have a look back at some of the fantastic weddings we covered the previous year.
One of our favourite couples were Iona and Ian who were married at Polwarth Parish Church in Edinburgh last June. Keeping their photography coverage simple Andrew and Emmett were there from Iona’s arrival at the church through to just before their meal. This was very much in keeping with their delightfully low key and relaxed celebrations which included Iona’s stunning vintage dress and home made champagne.
Iona and Ian were also one of those fantastic couples who were up for anything and some of our favourite shots were taken on the canal next to the church. We loved the fact that Iona was not afraid to get in one of the boats!
We are now enjoying working on their album and can’t wait for them to see it!”
I’m sure they will be delighted – thanks again for sharing!
It certainly has been a while since I last shared a real wedding with you, but wait any longer you shall not. Today I introduce a new photographer to Wedding Inspiration – welcome, Mick Cookson.
Below Mick shares with us some of his fabulous photos from Hannah and Dan’s big day. A happy bride, a gorgeous venue and a pretty darn impressive table plan!
Hannah’s family home is literally across the road from All Hallows church in Allerton. All her life, Hannah knew she would be married there, as did all the family. When the big day finally arrived in June this year…the church was half-way through a brickwork maintenance project – and the building was half-covered in scaffolding and corrugated sheeting! Undeterred, the happy couple still went ahead with their plans at the church, jokingly adding the irony to their long term plans.
After the wedding it was off in an open limo to Sefton Park – to The Palm House, a stunning Victorian building that now is a top Liverpool wedding venue. En route, we stopped off on Penny Lane for a few shots – a street with a special place in their hearts. Apparently it’s famous for something…
At the Palm House, the table plans were based on the London Underground map, with a stunning Victorian style wedding cake, topped with a family heirloom cake topper…
A big thanks to Mick Cookson for sharing Hannah and Dan’s wedding pictures with Wedding Inspiration.

Well, I promised you some more fabulousness today and here it is – part 2 of Charlotte and Alan’s wedding as shot by Lyndsey Goddard.
The emotional ceremony featured a beautiful rendition of Eva Cassidy’s ‘Songbird’, which didn’t leave a dry eye in the room (including mine) and I was very lucky to capture such precious moments.
After the ceremony, the couple and their guests enjoyed champagne and canapes in front of a roaring log fire – the perfect setting for their drinks reception.
The evening celebrations included a somewhat raunchy display o the burlesque routine which Charlotte and her friends (and her mum!) had learned on her hen night…..they made for some fabulous shots!
I told you it was an amazing wedding! If, like me, you are in awe and want to see some more photography by the delightful Lyndsey Goddard – then please do visit her site : www.lyndseygoddard.com
Slightly obssessed by weddings and photography, Wedding-Inspiration allows me the opportunity to be completely submerged in both. I’m fortunate that some fantastic photographers allow me to share their work and today I have the pleasure of sharing with you some more from the lovely Lyndsey Goddard Photography.
I must admit, I’ve had these photos in my inbox for a while – so why has it taken so long for me to share them? Well, that one is simple. Lyndsey sent around 300 images and whilst I wouldn’t describe myself as indecisive, I found it pretty darn difficult to whittle the collection down.
Charlotte and Alan’s photos are truly stunning, Lyndsey has done a magnificent job in capturing all the small details and intimate moments of this couple’s big day – and I want to share as many as possible with you! Below Lyndsey tells us about Charlotte and Alan’s wedding day;
Charlotte and Alan married at ”one of the hundred best wedding venues in the world” (according to Brides magazine), on a dark and stormy day at the start of February. Their chosen venue, Stubton Hall, was breath-taking and was very fitting of it’s title!
Brides don’t come much better than Charlotte; such a happy, smily, adorable person – she was indeed a pleasure to photograph. She and Alan have been together for a long time, and their wedding was full of personal touches, a lot of which I tried to capture on the day.
Generally excited by this wedding – I have broken it into two parts – part 2 will be on show later today! Extremely emotional photos and burlesque dancing by the bride and her hens……it’s one not to be missed I assure you!
Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you some work from the talented Martin Beddall. New to Wedding Inspiration, Martin got in touch through the wonderful world of twitter and I am sure you will be impressed by his work.
Over to Martin;
“Catherine and Nick’s wedding was in many ways a quintessential English summers wedding, on a warm day in late May. After a church ceremony in her parent’s village in Kent, Catherine had chosen Marle Place gardens (near Tunbridge Wells) as the reception venue. Privately owned it offers not only space for a large marquee but a large ,but intimate, grounds for guests to explore, as well as friendly hosts – so much better than many hotels can offer.
Being a former model, Catherine had impressed upon me at our first contact how important photography was to her. It is always nice to hear when a bride books you, that they have already searched lots of photographers in order to make their choice.
Catherine and Nick were a great couple to photograph, thoroughly relaxed and confident enough to let the photographer just get on with the job of documenting their day – they even arranged for great light on the day!
