Wedding Photography – Woodlands Hotel, Spalding

Mr and Mrs Molson Wedding Photography

Jayne and John have had a bumpy ride to reach their wedding day and it was a true delight to provide Wedding Photography for their special day on 22nd June 2018 at The Woodlands Hotel, Spalding, Lincolnshire.  Jayne and John have been a couple for over 25 years however decided to tie the knot ready for Jayne’s retirement this coming September.  The wedding day was originally set for December 2017 and everything was in place.   The guests arrived, Jayne settled into the hotel and began preparing for the day, even I had arrived at the venue and began photographing wedding details and the guests arriving, however everyone at the hotel was unaware that the groom had been taken ill and rushed to hospital a couple of hours before they were due to marry.  Sadly the wedding ceremony had to be called off and attention turned to John’s health.   It was a relief to hear a few days later that he was on the mend and would make a full recovery.

John took full responsibility for organising the 2nd wedding day, taking care of all the details right down to making personalised order of service cards, sending out new wedding invitations and choosing Jaynes beautiful new wedding bouquet.   The new wedding date was scheduled to be a selective guest list with a wonderful intimate feel and only 21 guests.  This did not prevent the couple and their guests enjoying a day full of love and laughter and creating wonderful memories with their nearest and dearest.  The wedding breakfast was served around one large table which added to the intimacy of the day.

It was an absolute delight to share in Mr and Mrs Molson’s special day and capture their love for one enough.  Here are some highlights of their wedding photography.

Learning is never ending

1st June 2018

I have often shared posts on Facebook with you all about training I have undergone as part of my photography journey. I am a firm believer that you never stop learning and that to be the best newborn and children’s photographer I can be that I need to develop and improve my skills regularly.

Last year I invited the wonderful Claire Elliott from Forever Memories Photography to my studio for a 1:1 training day to work on my Newborn posing skills. I was so inspired by her teaching and everything that I learnt that I was quick to enrol for her 1 week residential training retreat in May of this year.

This course took place near Ashbourne in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, in a beautiful converted Barn. Myself and fourteen other likeminded photographers spent five wonderful days immersed in all things photography.

We studied from dawn to dusk (and that is no over-exaggeration), covering everything from photographing newborns, posing and styling for little sitters, toddlers and older children, lighting techniques, photographing outdoors, editing techniques, business management and for me the most important one, a session surrounding being a responsible photographer and baby / child first aid.

The week was very intense with lots of learning and hands on practise with some wonderful children and models, we even spent time practising on one another to capture some up to date head shots. It truly was an amazing week with a wealth of knowledge learnt and some amazing friends made.

I look forward to putting into practise what I have learnt with you all soon.

      Why book a Newborn Photoshoot

      24th January 2018

      Are your pregnant or have a new little addition to your family? Many congratulations on your little miracle. Newborns grow and change at an alarming rate and before you know it your beautiful baby has become a smelly, moody, teenager. My own little miracle celebrates her 10th Birthday next week and it’s hard to remember those tiny toes and fingers. I didn’t know about specialist Newborn Photography back then but I am so thankful for the wonderful baby photos I have of my tiny baby girl.

      Whist your newborn is still tiny you will be so wrapped up in the whirlwind of those early days, running on adrenaline, sleep deprived, with a constant stream of visitors. It is so easy for your little one to change and you not notice until it’s too late and your newborn has become more alert and that sleepy curled up baby has gone forever. If you make time for one thing I would strongly recommend looking at baby photographers in Lincolnshire and book when you are around 20 weeks pregnant to ensure you secure a space.

      Look for baby photographers who are specially trained.

      Some of the poses you see in the beautiful images we all coo over requires specialist skills to ensure that your precious baby remains safe at all times, so please research your choices carefully. You might choose a mobile photographer so you can remain in the comfort of your home or prefer a photography studio where a range of props and backdrops are available for you to choose from. Maybe you want more lifestyle photography type images where baby is captured during natural interaction with you or you love the wonderful posed images that capture sleepy babies all curled up. Whatever your preference there is a newborn photographer nearby that will be perfect for you.

      My personal photography style has developed over the last few years and my baby photoshoots include a range of natural and posed images capturing your newborn both awake and asleep, using a range of props and blankets to compliment your home. My service incorporates discussions with you to ensure that the images captured suit your family and personal style. My garden photography studio near Spalding is easily accessible from Peterborough, Boston and Kings Lynn and is ideal to allow you to relax and enjoy your newborn photography experience in comfort whilst I work my magic.

      I hope my post on baby photographers near Peterborough has been useful. If you have any questions or would love to chat about booking your baby session with me. Contact me today.

      I look forward to welcoming you soon.

        Slice of Life Photography - Bride and Groom Portrait on the Bank of the River Welland at Sunset

        When James and Liene first came to chat to me about their wedding day, I instantly warmed to their bubbly fun personalities and knew it would be a wedding day to remember. They had chosen to have a very intimate wedding ceremony with only 10 guests at the service and wedding breakfast with many more joining them for the evening celebrations. This is the smallest ceremony I have photographed to date and it was a true honour to be a part of it.

        Their wedding took place on what was undoubtedly the coldest day of the 2017! Sub zero conditions coupled with a beautiful blue sky created a challenging yet beautiful backdrop for the wedding photographs at the Ship Inn near Spalding and at the extra special spot that the couple had found for us to detour too for special seasonal photographs in a field of Christmas trees.
