ECLECTIC BRIDE’S DIARY: THE PHOTOGRAPHY

Hello BLOVED readers, I hope you are all enjoying the longer evenings and brighter mornings – I definitely am – summer is on its way, at last!!

This month has been a great month for wedding planning! We booked our honeymoon (eek!), I had my first dress fitting which was totally dreamy and… the 6 month countdown has begun! #staycalm For this post I wanted to share with you my excitement for our chosen photographer and ideas on capturing the day.

After booking The Bell, one of the first things we looked to next was a photographer – for us both it is one of the most key components of the day. Not only is it a way to look back at your special day but you also get to see it all from a completely different perspective! I imagine the day will just wiz by so quickly, so it will be very exciting to have all the photos as something to look forward – and hopefully cherish forever! I absolutely love snapping away on my phone at anything which catches my eye and Nick, being a designer very much enjoys and appreciates good imagery – so we were definitely looking for something a bit different.

We are very excited about working with Dale Weeks, the way I came across him was really random but is also why I think it’s meant to be! My friend mentioned his name to me after hearing it on the wedding scene and so we got straight online.

I was pleased and surprised to see that he had shot at our venue before, we searched for him on Instagram to look for more images and a couple of minutes after following Dale a message popped up from him asking if I had found a photographer yet! Amazingly enough he is also getting married at The Bell a month before us and so it all just seemed perfect.

There was no hesitation in booking Dale, we are not the most photogenic, pose savvy couple going and so as an alternative wedding photographer with a creative and relaxed style he was totally up our street! We really feel he will be able to capture the emotions and fun of the day, in a natural and honest way rather than being too structured or posed.

Dale’s unique style speaks for itself but I wanted to share with you a few of his amazing images.
