I initially met with James & Nicola in 2015 to discuss their wedding plans, seeing their ideas on paper and hearing how they would like their dream wedding to unfold, it got my inspiration cogs turning.
In April just a month before the wedding we all met at Saltmarshe Hall to plan the wedding and photograph their engagement shoot. The gardens were just starting to come into bloom and coming up with ideas for the wedding we had to imagine what the gardens would look like in a months time – it was incredible to see just how much it changed. Navigate between them both and you will see such a dramatic contrast – its seasonal gardens that make venues like Saltmarshe so special.
Intimate Saltmarshe Hall Wedding
On the wedding day, Nicola and James chose to have a small intimate ceremony beforehand in the morning. Just close family attended. This is where my full day wedding photography packages came in handy, with a time limited package it would of been difficult – but having no time limit it made no difference in how the day flowed. You would of thought with 2 ceremonies things would of been hectic, it was the complete opposite. A relaxed stress free morning.
Saltmarshe itself is one of the few venues that need very little styling as it is absolutely beautiful inside – what we would call a wedding photographer’s dream. With neutral pastel tones throughout – Nicola and James decided on some little touches spreading flowers throughout which gave it that extra flare for their wedding.

Full day wedding photography packages
Whereas some photographers only stay until after the first dance with their wedding packages I will stay right until the end of the night and party with you and your guests. Nicola and James sure knew how to party, they hired The rebel sounds and they were awesome! I don’t think I’ve partied as much at a wedding before as I did at their wedding.
