Creative Documentary Wedding Photography of Dani + Jim’s Newton Solney Wedding

From a brief meeting at The Belfry Bridal Fayre at the start of last year, it was immediately apparent that Dani + Jim wanted one thing – a genuinely natural story of their wedding as they had THE BEST time possible. Perfect!!

With everything in place – including the best of wedding planners in the Mother of the Bride, Debbie – the day was set to be fabulously relaxed and just what the couple wanted.

From the ceremony at the beautiful village church of St Marys, Newton Solney, it was just a short journey to the reception in the garden of Jim’s best friend. 

The perfect country wedding in beautiful surroundings, blessed with stunning summer weather, a fantastic collection of friends and family, Dani and Jim’s wedding indeed had it all!

The story of Dani + Jim’s wedding began with the final preparations for the bridal party in Lichfield. 

The hair and makeup were almost completed ready for the wedding, and time for the stunning dresses from Wedding Belles of Four Oaks.

The flowers by Lily of Flower Design of Lichfield were stunning and brought the theme of the day together!

The flower girls stole the show from the start of the day, with Dani + Jim’s daughters Florence and Francesca looking stunning alongside Lilly and our Bridesmaids Charlotte.

Dani’s choice on the dress was perfect – I just knew Jim would lose it when he saw her!

Newton Solney Church Wedding

Following a short journey into South Derbyshire, it was to the beautiful village of Newton Solney for the wedding at St Marys Church.

Capturing the guests arriving and the emotions building on our groom’s face, it was fabulous to see the reaction when Dani arrived!

Being given the freedom to unobtrusively capture the wedding ceremony, it was beautiful documenting the little moments that make the story so unique. From a glance between the couple to seeing the guests in the background, it all comes together in the narrative.

During the signing of the register, we were all treated to something quite magnificent – an operatic performance from Charlotte, Dani’s sister. Such an incredible voice that reverberated beautifully around the church – a moment to remember and cherish!

Newton Solney Wedding Reception

Following the brief journey down the church lane to the reception, it was terrific to make the best of Rob + Charlotte’s stunning garden for the photographs. 
One gorgeous setting – and I must say an honour to be invited in so warmly.

From capturing the guests enjoying the start of the evening reception, to the cutting of the beautiful cake, I had to steal a moment with our bride and groom ahead of the first dance to make the most of this amazing light:
