I met Danielle & Steve when I did a couples shoot with them (and their gorgeous dog, Pixie!) this summer. We strolled around Walton on the Naze, a beautiful seaside town in Essex, capturing photos of them all together on the beach and Pixie playing in the sea. I really enjoyed the day – we just clicked and found that we worked together really well. So, I was thrilled when, after seeing the images from their shoot, they asked me to photograph their wedding.  It’s always awesome to work with people you really like – and to photograph a couple so in love – but the added bonus here was that they married in Tenerife!

I chose a yellow backdrop for the studio style images, to give a modern day twist to a typically sixties set up. We also utilised Rock the Day’s glorious velvet sofa, and their signature peacock chairs, too.
