I’ve always been a huge fan of weddings where friends or family members of the bride & groom get ordained and perform the ceremony for them. Can you get any more personal? For our wedding, the vicar that married us was a family friend so I know exactly how extra special it feels to have someone you know and love marry you.
The Universal Life Church is a fantastic website where your chosen friend or family member can get ordained in order to perform your marriage ceremony for you. The company, who ordain over 500 people a day (!) believe strongly in marriage equality and unity across all religions (and non-religions) and believe in everyone’s right to have their wedding officiant by whomever they desire. This ethos is what their company is based on.

Emma Case is my home-girl. I love her. She is a massive (and I mean crazy massive, like totally obsessed) fan of Featherlove Photography so when she found out that Noa was over in London in April, she jumped at the chance to do an engagement shoot with her fiance Pete. As soon as Emma told me of her plans I immediately ‘bagsied’ the images for featuring as I knew, even without seeing a single frame or knowing the premise of the shoot that they would be awesome…and boy how right I was!
I asked Emma this morning if there was anything she wanted me to add to this post and she simply replied “The only thing I would like to add is a big fat thank you to Pete. I cannot begin to explain how supportive he has been over the past six months. I love him with all my heart and he’s so friggin’ hot in these pictures it’s unreal!!” So much cuteness. Now hurry up and get married you guys. I’m waiting for my invite in the post damnit!
What I love about Sonya & Toby’s Cotswold’s wedding was the moments photographer David Jenkins seemed to capture. Subtle, touching, intimate, hilarious…the images just jumped off the screen at me and I felt an instant affinity with the event. I could literally imagine being there.
Quite apart from the photography, the wedding was a simply darling English affair – the church looks elgeant (who says Rock n Roll Brides can’t get married in a chuch? Not me!) the venue looks sweet as hell and the details are fabulous. The bunting, the cupcakes, the flowers, the fairylights. I love it all!
This cute West London engagement shoot delighted me ever so much as I work very near here – in fact I drive past the modern building featured in some of the shots everyday and think how much nicer it looks than the studios where I work…and aren’t Sarah-Jane & Mitul just adorable?I thought my American readers in particular would love the old buildings in some of the other shoots… here in the UK we’re used to old churches and the terraced houses…very quintessentially English huh?
