I don't know where to start with this one! I think that first photo just kind of speaks for itself, we all know how ridiculously obsessed I am with dogs so when I found out my favourite fluff Freddie was going to be the ring bearer, well I just could not contain myself.

 

I know Freddie you see, I have known Nai for around 12 years, possibly 13 so we have been through a lot! Starting our friendship in a little alternative night club called Corporation I knew our friendship would last, but I never saw myself photographing her wedding. But there I was! And it was the best day ever!

 

Freddie was just the most glorious ring bearer, keep an eye out for the moment Freddie took a shine to the amazing arch provided by Campbell's Flowers! Nai looked absolutely INCREDIBLE! She had the hair and makeup wizards at Jenn Edwards Team on her and her bridesmaids but they all looked beautiful anyway.

 

We were serenaded after the ceremony by a phenomenal brass band, which subsequently meant there were some excellent moves thrown on the lawn. The speeches were wonderful, hilarious and emotional, what more could you want? Finally it was all followed by a Corporation takeover on the dancefloor where I danced with my friends until my feet literally bled.

 

I've officially ran out of adjectives but it was a total pleasure to be a part of Nai and Rich's incredible day. I just LOVE looking back through these images! Can we do it all again please?

Lucy & Steve | Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet & 99 Mary Street Wedding http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/lucy-steve-abbeydale-industrial-hamlet-99-mary-street-new-york-brass-band

Lucy and Steve had the most glorious wedding, I am so grateful for being a part of it!

They started their day at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet which is where I went on many school trips so it was so lovely that I could go back and shoot a wedding there many years later. Lucy had just discovered that she was in fact pregnant and I think you'll agree she look blooming marvellous in her dress with her little baby bump.

After exploring the Hamlet we went for a play in the bluebells which was so lovely, absolutely perfect timing for a wedding that's right next to the woods - so many bluebells!

For the speeches and party we headed to 99 Mary Street where we had pie and peas (YES!) and an absolute corker of a wedding crashing by New York Brass Band, who are in fact one of my absolute favourites so you can imagine my excitement at them being there. Also, keeping a secret like that from the wedding guests all day was a proper challenge. But I succeeded and it was a party to never forget.

What a day! So many memororable venues, bands and moments. I won't be forgetting this one for a very long time. Good luck to Lucy and Steve with their new little family!

Alice & Sam | Shoot at Curbar Edge, Peak District http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/alice-sam-engagement-shoot-at-curbar-edge-peak-district

 

Alice and Sam are getting married in September 2018 and it was our my love for Alice in Wonderland that drew Alice to my work, oh and of course the fact that I know how to take a photo, and boy am I glad they found me!

ANYWAY, they really wanted to do a pre-shoot to get a little bit more comfortable in front of the camera and of course to have some beautiful photos of themselves before their big day. Because their wedding will be more on the urban side of things we decided the Peak District would be a great location.

On the day I had to double check they still wanted to do the shoot as the weather was so grim, however, it's Engalnd and it'll always be grim so they said yes of course which made me VERY happy. Don't let a little rain put anyone off anything!

These guys were a total DREAM to photograph. I don't know how to describe it. They were obviously a teeeeeeeeeny tiny bit nervous to begin with but after 5 minutes they were just complete naturals. I had the BEST time photographing Alice and Sam.

Their love for eachother literally oozes through these images and I just cannot wiat until next year when I get to do it all again!

Charlotte & Daniel | Harry Potter Themed Wedding at Wentbridge House http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/charlotte-daniel-harry-potter-themed-wedding-at-wentbridge-house

Charlotte and Daniel had the most delightful day back on a very sunny and boiling hot day in June. Wentbridge House is a stunning little venue in North Yorkshire and being the huge fans that they are, the pair of them kitted the place out in the classiest Harry Potter theme. I'm a huge Potter fan so I was delighted to see the decor. I won't say anymore but a combination of imagination and homemade copper accessories from Daniel I think you'll agree it all looked absolutely incredible!

 

I genuinely couldn't get enough of how cute Charlotte was on the day and looking back at these photos her happiness was literally radiating out of her, definitely the happiest day of their lives!

 

The icing on the cake was the surprise they had in store after dessert, 3 of the "waiters" that had been serving the guests throughout dinner just broke into song and dance. They weren't waiters at all, they were in fact trained broadway singers and actors! They were AMAZING!

 

Thank you so much for having me at your incredible day, I enjoyed every second of it!

Clare & Adam | Colourful DIY Wedding At The Faversham With The Cutest Fluffiest Dogs http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/clare-adam-colourful-diy-wedding-at-the-faversham-with-the-cutest-fluffiest-dogs

 

WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THIS WEDDING?

 

It was a dream wedding.

 

What more could you want than lovely people, bright colours, a free bar, great food, lots of laughs, an amazingly chilled venue and BIG FLUFFY CUTE DOGS?

 

Yes the dogs were amazing but the rest of the day was just as good, maybe not as cute or fluffy, but definitely just as good!

 

The Faversham is a wonderful venue, it was such a chilled day, drinks constantly flowing, but weirdly no one was out of control drunk whilst I was there? It may have turned when I left though.

 

Clare and Adam are a dream couple. They are super super lovely and I would happily call them a friend now, I'm just keeping that link so I can go see the dogs really. You could literally see the happiness and love oozing out of them all day and when we went off for portraits they couldn't keep their hands off each other! 

 

Total pleasure to be a part of this day so I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do, there's even a bonus video to watch! I now offer videos as part of the package so please get in contact for more info!

 

 

Now for the photos!

Dogs Dogs Dogs | A Dog Themed Styled Shoot http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/7/dogs-dogs-dogs-a-dog-themed-styled-shoot

 

This blog barely needs any introduction. If you hadn't guessed by now, I LOVE dogs. I'm a big animal person but dogs have a really special place in my heart. My first dog was the love of my life and the sister I never had so I know just how incredible these animals are in your lives. So why should they not play a part in your wedding? 

 

Many venues now allow you take your dogs to the venue, or you can hire a dog walker to meet you somewhere for some portraits with your pooch, after all they are family!

 

Have you ever wondered how you can involve dogs in more of your wedding? Well consider this your inspiration. 

 

Everyone who was involved did an incredible job, they literally say never work with kids or animals and I did BOTH!!!! There were no accidents, nothing got broken, a chocolate brownie may have lost it's life to a snaffling whippet but everyone was fine and it was a super fun day.

 

I'm not sure when this shoot took a turn into the 50s/kitsch direction but boy am I glad it did. I'm waffling now and all you want to see are the dogs.... GO GO GO!

Jess & Alex | Cute Spring Wedding at Yeldersley Hall with Sausage Dog http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/6/jess-alex-cute-spring-wedding-at-yeldersley-hall-with-sausage-dog

 

I think if you spend just 10 seconds looking at these images you'll quickly see why I fell so in love with Jess and Alex on this day. Their happiness was literally radiating out of them all day. 

 

It was a super super relaxed day at Yeldersley Hall, which is BEAUTIFUL by the way, with luckily some lovely weather. I loved that there were "chefs" on each table for their relaxed dinner, basically everything was relaxed and fun which is exactly what Jess and Alex are about.

 

I must make a few points for you to take note when looking though the photos:

 

My "natural" way of creating blossom confetti.

 

The small blooper at the actual confetti moment.

 

The most beautiful bridesmaid dresses (well done girls, you did great there).

 

Alan the sausage dog. He was a nervous little sausage but looked the most dapper of dapper dogs in his little yellow bow tie.

 

The surprise visit from Rammie, who if you don't know is the Derby County mascot (no I didn't know either), who I think made Alex's day (don't tell Jess).

 

The best first dance photo series EVER where you can even see the moment the DJ says "hope you've got your dancing shoes on".

It's British Flower week and to celebrate, me and some lovely lovely pals of mine in the wedding industry headed to a friends garden in the countryside to seek the most perfect setting for our Secret Garden shoot.

 

I'm not going to say much as I think a picture speaks a thousand words for this shoot. It was a perfect day, even if I melted completely, I also managed to get a dog involved. Of course I did!

Melissa & Matt | DIY Outdoor Ceremony, Tipi in the Peak District http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/6/melissa-matt-diy-outdoor-ceremony-tipi-in-the-peak-district

 

Mel & Matt had the most beautiful wedding in a private family owned field out in the Peak District. Then went against all of the weather odds of England and had an outdoor ceremony with the most beautiful floral arch made by Frances & Rose.

 

The weather was totally on our side as it was GLORIOUS sunshine and absolutely no need to wear a jacket and most definitely the need to wear suncream.

 

The ceremony was beautiful, the weather was beautiful, the setting was beautiful, it was just basically a totally beautiful wedding. I loved absolutely everything about it! Mel had made pretty much everything to do with the wedding, it really was the most DIY wedding and all the hard work definitely paid off as the tipi just looked stunning.

 

I think my favourite moment of the day though is when me and Mel were shoved onto the back of a tiny little buggy is all I can describe it as and driven down some very precarious hills. We laughed A LOT! But also feared for our lives a little bit...

 

Thank you so much for having me there guys, I absolutely adored your day and wish you the best of luck in the future.

We arranged this shoot a million times and things just kept getting in the way but we finally got a date in and went to Paddly Gorge in the Peaks with their gorgeous little man Alfie who was having some great hair issues with the wind!

Lauren & James | The Dickens Inn by Tower Bridge, London http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/lauren-james-the-dickens-inn-by-tower-bridge-london

 

I did it! I went to London and shot a wedding and boy am I glad that this was the first one.

 

Lauren and James had the most wonderful day. The setting was just perfect, with a view like the Tower Bridge in the background it was only going to be wonderful. I absolutely LOVED the decor, the table names were all dinosaur names which in my eyes is an instant 10 out of 10.

 

Lauren looked absolutely stunning in a Jenny Packham, with the cutest little flower girls who made my job very easy when taking photos of them. In fact the whole day was easy to photograph! The weather was just perfect, venue was great and Lauren and James were just lovely lovely people who made me feel very welcome and comfortable.

 

Not to mention the fact they finished the evening with a mariachi band who played lots of songs I remembered from Cuba, wonderful nostalgia which made me very happy indeed.

 

Thank you so much for having me guys! I hope it's not too long until I'm in London again.

I know Leanne from the WI (honestly, joining the WI has done wonders for my business, JOKING I'VE MADE SOME GREAT FRIENDS TOO) and she asked me to photograph her little gang, I of course said yes.

 

I LOVE doing family shoots, I like being able to capture real life family moments, yes even little strops, it's all part of the fun!

 

We went to the Botanical Gardens as it's just so lovely in there, they actually got married in the gardens a few years ago so it was just perfect really.

Kate & Russell | Urban Wedding 99 Mary Street and Trafalgar Warehouse http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/kate-russell-urban-wedding-99-mary-street-and-trafalgar-warehouse

 

Kate and Russell organised their wedding through my good pal Flick at Inner City Weddings and luckily for me my details were passed onto them for the photography.

 

Oh my goodness am I glad I was a part of this wedding.

 

It was just perfect, Kate and Russell are super laid back and clearly focused on having fun in their lives which was so obvious throughout their day. I felt very connected to their ceremony at 99 Mary Street, basically because it was a beautiful humanist ceremony that spoke about their amazing trip to Cuba (I've recently just had the best trip to Cuba EVER) and they had a ceremonial rum (rum is the perfect drink).

 

The drinks most definitely flowed and the sun shone, it was like a rowdy pub spilling onto the streets, it was wonderful! Nursery rhymes on the bus to Trafalgar Warehouse between drunk adults was definitely a new experience.

 

Finishing the day at Trafalgar Warehouse was a great move as there was clearly a lot of partying to be had which can be pretty evident from the amount of evening photos they got.

 

Lovely flowers and foliage provided by my good pals Campbell's Flowers!

Jen & Lewis | Festival Tipi Wedding in the Peak District http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/jen-lewis-festival-tipi-wedding-in-the-peak-district

 

I can't believe I haven't blogged this wedding yet? I know I could come across completely bias as this was a friends wedding but even if they were strangers this wedding would still have been completely AMAZING!

 

Their theme was spot on, it was as festival-ly (yep, new word) as a festival wedding could be. You know what made it most like a festival? It rained relentlessly pretty much ALL DAY. Even with the rain, no ones spirits were dampened (ahem).

 

Jen's beautiful dress was beautifully made by a friend and the attention to detail in every aspect of the day was just incredible. I didn't step off the dance floor for one minute until the party came to an end. Silent discos are officially one of the best ways to end your wedding day, I laughed so so so much!

 

I basically got zero portraits of these guys because of the rain but that seriously did not matter on the day as there was just so much fun to be had. I am however looking forward to shooting with them both again to get those portraits finally done.

Rosie & Harry | Peak District Couple Shoot http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/rosie-harry-peak-district-couple-shoot

 

What can I say about these 2? CUTIES! Rosie got in contact with me about photographing their wedding in September down in Stratford and I jumped at the chance, she was so so lovely on the phone, how could I not?

 

We met up last week to fill out boring contracts but then went off on a little adventure to Dovedale National Park for some photos to get them warmed up for their day.

 

They were both nervous about being photographed but really they had nothing to be nervous about, they were both total naturals and even clambered a pretty steep hill for me. Not t9o mention that fact that Rosie is the best help when trying to get down a ridiculously muddy field in trainers (my mistake).

 

Can't wait to photograph their wedding in September! It's going to be so much fun!

Cuba | Ellie Takes a Trip http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/cuba-ellie-takes-a-trip

 

Oh Cuba, what an incredible country you are. Please never change!

 

As soon as you step off the plane into this country it is like being instantly transported back into the 1950's and I seriously wouldn't have it any other way. It really is going back to basics, don't expect any hot showers that come out more than a dribble and absolutely do not expect to be able to find the Internet except in selected parks and posh hotels. You really are cut off!

 

I took my Grandads Olympus OM-1 loaded with Kodak Portra 400 film and I am so pleased I dug it out again, I think I'm going to take this camera everywhere abroad with me from now on.

 

We spent 2 weeks in Cuba doing everything from exploring the city, swimming in natural swimming pools and bat caves, riding horses, adventuring round tobacco and sugar plantations, partying in caves, drinking rum (oh so so so so much rum) and really experiencing the Cuban culture and life.

 

I think everyone should go before it does change, which I seriously hope it doesn't!

Lizy & Mark | Cute Village Hall Wedding, Dunham Massey http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/lizy-mark-cute-village-hall-wedding-dunham-massey

 

Lizy and Mark had the cutest wedding in the cutest little church and village hall in the cutest little village, Dunham Massey. So much cute!

 

The day was full of loveliness starting with a surprise from Lizy to her dad with the wedding car, it was the same car he had for years when he was younger. The flowers were beautiful, the bridesmaids looked absolutely gorgeous and Lizy looked stunning - her wedding dress had pockets!!!!!!!

 

I loved their idea for the first dance, they had a chalk board with a voting system which was great. It was such a lovely day, I loved meeting all of their family and friends and spending my day with them was just the best.

 

I have included some photos of the invites and save the dates at the bottom of the blog as they were made by my pal Wildwood Paper and I think you'll agree they are stunning and matched the wedding perfectly!

 

 

 

Lizy & Mark also enlisted the help of my pal Grace at Wildwood Paper for their 'save the dates' and invites. As you can see they used the church for the 'save the dates' and the village hall for the invites, so nice!

We work together in the same studio so I took the photos for her of the invites and it was a real pleasure to be so involved in Lizy and Marks wedding!​​​​​​​

I've always had a huge soft spot for Eyam Hall so when Alice got in contact with me about photographing her wedding there I did a very happy little dance. The flowers from the day were just beautiful and by the lovely ladies at Frances and Rose.

 

It was such a beautiful day, the weather was perfect, we were able to have the ceremony, drinks and music outside which was just great. Alice and Edward are such a fun, easy going couple, we were able to just have fun all day.

 

I also never usually include family group shots in my blogs but I just had to include some because of how ridiculous they were. It was also one of the most violent confetti tunnels I'd ever seen. I feared for their lives. They even did their first dance to one of my favourite songs - send me on my way by Rusted Root.

Charlie and Chris basically had my dream wedding, I was in absolute heaven. You know what made it even more wonderful? The people. Everyone was SO NICE! Plus Charlie just looked so unbelievably beautiful, bride of my dreams.

 

They had their ceremony on stage at Yellow Arches surrounded by flamingoes and robots, led by Charlies brother who was dressed absolutely fantastically. The speeches were beautiful, I cried twice, and after feeding people incredibly well with ice cream and Mexican, they ended with a cracking party. 

 

I honestly loved this wedding so much, it just had Charlie and Chris written all over it and to feel so welcomed into someone's day like I was, it just made me very happy.

Dogs at Weddings | It's a yes from me! http://www.elliegracephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/1/dogs-at-weddings

 

Weddings are a time for family and friends, and you know what? Dogs are family so why can't they be a part of your day too?

 

Everyone knows that I am a crazy dog lady, if you don't know, you will within 27 seconds of meeting me. So when I get couples that want to involved their canine family in their wedding, I obviously jump at this and of course warn them that there might be more photos of the dog then of them, they're okay with this.

 

It's easy to involve your dog, you can convince a family member to be in charge of them or you can get in contact with a local dog walker and see if they will drop them off and pick them up again. Usually the dogs are the ring bearers, you'll still need your best man to hand them over, dogs aren't quite there with opposable thumbs yet.

 

Basically dogs are wonderful and if you have one you should definitely bring them along to your day. I will convince you if you're on the fence don't worry!

 

So here is a little handful of the weddings I have done so far with dogs involved.

 

 

First up we have Kala, Andy, Roxy and Beren.

 

 

Kate, Rob and Herbert.

 

 

Amelia, Richard and Jeremy.

 

 

Megan, Andy and Riley.

You'll also notice Herbert having his second appearance (even though he actually hates cameras) and another sneaky sausage.

 

 

Jenni, Joe and Bob

 

Meg, Alex and Bernie

 

If you really can't bring your dog along then there are ways of incorporating them into the wedding. Laura and Michael did just that by getting some incredible Lily shaped button holes, Lily shaped shortbreads as a favour and even got Lily on top of the cake. The possibilities are endless!

 

 

 

And finally, if you're a cat person, cats can be involved too...
