Hannah is a dream! She photographed our wedding a few weeks ago, and we have been showing everyone we know the photos over the past week and every single person said the same thing – she was amazing! We couldn’t agree more.
Neither my wife or I are ‘naturals’ in front of the camera, but from the first contact we had with Hannah she made us feel relaxed and more importantly made the photo taking bit of the day sound fun – which really put us at ease. We had such a fun day on our engagement shoot which, as Hannah promised, gave us an opportunity to practice being snapped at. It also allowed Hannah to understand what we were like as people, rather just another man in a suit and woman in a white dress :)
On the wedding day Hannah was everything we wanted. Cheerful, discrete, friendly, patient (!), understanding and above all smiley! We think the photos reflect our day completely which is exactly what we wanted. Hannah captured the natural elements amazingly, there are so many moments of genuine warmth and love in the photos.
To any prospective nervous brides and grooms, we can only say that Hannah could not come more highly recommended if you want your photos to reflect the fun, warm, lovely side of your big day.
Thank you so much Hannah, you’ve made a record of our wedding day that we can cherish for ever. Keep up the good work :)
James and Klare
James and Klare are the type of people who make you feel as if you’ve been friends for years within minutes of knowing each other. They’re the type of people who welcome you with big warm hugs. They’re the type of people who, even after years of being together, still have giddy affection for one another. They are deeply caring and genuine through and through. Their wedding day was a reflection of all these admirable characteristics and I feel so lucky to have documented it all. Even the registrar at Coventry Register Office said she hadn’t seen a ceremony so full of love and emotion for a good long while. These two really are something special.
James and Klare said their vows at Coventry Register Office with 80 family and friends as witnesses. With the happiest of tears, kisses, and laughter they officially became husband and wife! The volume of applause and cheers were enough to give you goosebumps!
Shortly after the ceremony, we made our way to Baginton Village Hall on the outskirts of Coventry. Hours and hours of hard work went into transforming what was a simple village hall to the most adorable setting for a wedding reception. There was a homemade floral archway, beach chairs for lounging in the sun, Pimm’s on the go, canapés to spare, and my favorite props- huge white balloons and a giant beach chair for guests to have the perfect photo op! Inside the hall was the sweetest English summer wedding set up ready for cream tea and plenty of blissful conversation.
James wore his late father’s ring and Klare wore her Grandmother’s necklace tied into her hair. It’s evident that family matters most and I think they honored their family so well with sentimental touches like these.
On their first date, while walking along the Thames in London, James got so nervous that he asked Klare to marry him! He said in his speech, “I knew it then and I know it now. I love you Klare with a K.”
James and Klare, I’ve said it a dozen times already, but thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day. I feel so lucky to have captured such joyous memories for you both and your families to cherish for years to come. And I meant it when I said I’m down for a coffee anytime. <3
