There are a select few UK photographers that I truly love and I think Pippa Mackenzie may be joining that group. I fell in love with her relaxed, documentary inspired style and couldn’t wait to share this rockin’ Brighton engagement session with you. “Natalie & James live in Surrey, and often hang out in Brighton” Pippa told me. “They are young, quirky and very successful property developers. They are such a cool, hip and fun loving couple and we wanted to really capture their characters in their e-Shoot. They had a few costume changes for the shoot to contrast the beach shots with classy rock n roll amongst the Brighton Lanes. We thought the edgy surroundings of Brighton really complimented their characters.”
You can check out Pippa & Ian’s ‘At Work’ video which includes a little film around this actual shoot right here. I love it! Damn it..now that’s another photographer on my list that I want to be shot by!
Will & Myriam’s ceremony took place at Pencarrow House in Cornwall and then it was all back to the parent’s house for food and drink! “There’s not much to tell” Will began “We did everything the way we did because we had known we wanted to be husband and wife for ages, so it was more a question of getting the day out of the way! We didn’t want to make a fuss about the day, or do anything cheesy, we just wanted it to be ‘a fun and casual get-together with romantic bits’ and we had an ultra-minimal budget”
Myriam wore a dress from Monsoon, Will’s bespoke suit was found at Ferguson Nash in Warwick and their hilarious tee-shirts were from the aptly named Fuckuall.

Julie & John got married in September 2008 at Luss Pier in Loch Lomond, Scotland. Although originally from Manchester, they chose this location as it was perfect for their ideal wedding – small and intimate – with only about 30 of their closest friends and family. They hired a boat from Sweeney’s Cruises where they had their ceremony and drinks. Afterward they walked along the beach to the Lodge on Loch Lomond where they had their meal and the rest of their evening.
I really really love doing my Under the Spotlight interviews as it’s great to talk about the genius behind the lens for once. Today, I’m excited to share with you Shelly of Toast of Leeds – a fabulous photographer from – you guessed it – Leeds, who blew me away with her recent Punk Bride shoot. Enjoy!
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Shelly Mantovani from Toast of Leeds. I shoot people.
Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in?
I’m based in Yorkshire but don’t let that put you off! I love to get on a plane or a train, it forces me to read books I keep buying and never get round to finishing.
