Featured!

Hey guys! So excited that today we are being featured on one of our favourite wedding blogs! Elizabeth at Bridal Musings was nice enough to want to feature Jack and Susanna's gorgeous wedding, and if you haven't seen it already, you MUST watch it! I think Nick really out-did himself with the editing of this one - it is SO special! And, I also must say, that I am so proud that I worked on this one with him in the shooting department. I have really fallen in love with shooting video - it is soooo much fun to see my images move!

Anyway, pop on over to Bridal Musings, and leave us some love in the comments box if you like what you see - or, just leave us some love in our comments box.   We LOVE to hear your feedback!!!

Oh Snap!

You have already seen Jack and Susanna's wedding film trailer and their full wedding film. But now, we want to show you a few stills that we snapped and a few that we took directly from the film. We wished we could have been their photographers too, but we know that Howell Photography did a great job!

We worked with so many great people on this wedding, and just wanted to mention how amazing Susanna's glam squad was! I mean, look at that girl! She is perfection! Her gorgeous makeup was done by Makeup by Kayleigh. She had gorgeous hair and nails too, so I will update the post when I find out who did them! Her nail artist even came the morning of the wedding to touch her up! SOOOOOO awesome! And those flowers?! SHUUUUT UP right now! Harber Floral Design killed it!

So, check out the eye candy!

Where My Happiness Begins...

So.....Hopefully your appetites have been sufficiently 'whet' for Jack and Susanna's full film. This is easily on of the most beautiful and heartfelt weddings I have ever SEEN, let alone had the chance and honour to shoot. As I mentioned in our earlier post, they have been together, changing each others lives for the better since they were 16 years old. The love for them by friends and family, and the love they had for each other was something very special, indeed.

Incredible details like the knitted flowers for the boys with vintage scrabble pieces for initials that Jack's sister made. A simply stunning feather bodice dress (well actually two dresses!) Even the flowers - done by the AMAZING Harber Floral Design were beautifully arranged and cut into hand made book safes?! Having made just ONE myself I know how time consuming this can be! There were vintage typewriters, a huge chandelier made from sheet music and even homemade jams, pickles and chutneys on the tables for guests. It was all stunning, and I am sure, exactly how these two had imagined their wedding day. But honestly, details don't make a wedding, the people do and these two people (who we are happy to call our friends!) are simply brilliant. I never saw a smile leave their faces the whole day.

I think Jack and Susanna had the perfect wedding, and it was because they knew each other so well and thought constantly about each other through the whole process. Everything they did was for each other, and I can't think of any better way to start out as husband and wife. So here is to the selfless and super talented Jack and Susanna. Ladies and gents, I give you.... 'Team Squires'



And stay tuned for part 2, showing some of our favourite stills taken from the day!

Today was gonna be the day.....

Craig and Sam are such a great couple! They are perfectly in love, perfect for each other and their wedding was simply full of fun and laughter. They had an amazing group of friends and family to help them celebrate and everybody was entertained throughout the whole day. A wonderful ceremony in the beautiful St Mary's of Nantwich was followed by cocktails and dancing at Combermere Abbey. There was a brilliant choreographed first dance and even 'Fake That' in which some of the boys did their best boy band 'impression'. I say impression, as saying that they actually sung, is a probably a bit strong!

It was a fantastic day and the sun even managed to shine, which lets be honest, seems to have been a bit of a rarity this summer! We took full advantage and took them over to a stunning lake to grab a breather from all the fun, and a few moments alone. Its always nice to do this with our brides and grooms as it probably the first chance they get to really stop and see each other all day!

When we headed back to the party there then was an impromptu sing-a-long gig by one of Craig's colleagues and everyone joined in belting out the hits. There was an awesome moment when during Wonderwall Craig and Sam were hoisted up above the crowd to sing a long. It was almost like having a mini festival at a wedding and just summed up the atmosphere perfectly!

So get your lighters in the air, and lets hear it! "Today was gonna be the day....."
