Featured Wedding: Neil and Chloe

by Azure

Featured Wedding by Jon & Nic of S6 Photography, Sheffield, UK The location of Neil and Chloe's big day was so amazing- a church ceremony followed by the reception at a local cricket club in the sleepy village of Dumbleton (in the Cotswold, England). The weather had been rubbish all week and then Saturday came and it was one of the nicest days of the year (we don't have many in the UK!). Neil and the boys had a pint in the village pub on the morning of the wedding as Chloe & the...

Featured Wedding by Becca and Matt Enslein of The Studio B Photography Jenny and Nelson’s wedding day revolved around three things, love, laughter and family. When you meet the both of them, you’re instantly drawn in by their friendly personalities and warm nature. Once you’re friends with them, you’re in. You’re family.

A Unique Spin: Hire a Pro Wedding Photographer for a Romantic Honeymoon Photo Shoot!

by Azure

This is something I hadn't thought of... And I LOVE the idea! Kate and Alex had a small garden wedding at the bride's mom's house, so they wanted their honeymoon to be extra special. Greece and the Greek Islands would be their destination of choice, and since a second ceremony on the beach in Greece was not an option (as neither the bride nor the groom are Greek Orthodox), they decided to get creative! So, the couple brought their wedding garb along on the honeymoon, and once...

Featured Wedding by Brooke Christl of Brooke Christl Photography The Sharpe/Berry Wedding took place on August 1st, 2009 with a brief ceremony on the beach in Ocean Isle, NC with a reception following at the Silver Coast Winery.
