Low Wood Bay Wedding Photography // Laura and Rob

Low Wood Bay Wedding Photography

I had a bit of a travel challenge for Laura and Rob’s Low Wood Bay wedding photography. Their wedding was on a Thursday on Windermere in the Lake District and on the day after, I was a guest/photographer at my friends Matt and Michelle’s wedding at Newton Hall in Northumberland, which is over 170 miles away from Windermere. It’s a good thing I don’t mind driving then.

Low Wood Bay is set on Windermere, about a mile away from one of my favourite places in the Lakes, Ambleside. When Baby T arrives later this month our foreign holidays are likely to turn into many more weekends in Ambleside so I was really looking forward to Laura and Rob’s day. It’s a stunning part of the UK to visit and shoot a wedding and I’m lucky in that I have a number of 2015 weddings booked in and around the lakes. Laura and Rob’s day was all at one venue so it was nice and relaxing knowing I could cover the bridal and groom preparation before their wedding service. With a 1.30pm service and the wedding breakfast at 3pm I had to move a little quicker than normal the couple shots on the jetty outside the hotel before a handful of formal family shots.  With amazing views if Windermere in the background I’m pretty pleased with the couple shots, I certainly think we made the most of the location!

Unfortunately we missed out on one of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve ever seen in the UK. During the wedding breakfast the sun made it through the low cloud and delivered the type of sunset I could only dream of. I very nearly dragged Laura and Rob from their main course but I opted to head out and grab a few landscape shots instead. The guests were then entertained with a casino before the night reception and the first dance and I bid fairwell to Laura and Rob and along with Mrs T, we set off on our cross country road trip to Northumberland whilst Laura and Rob partied long into the night!

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photography // Vicky and Matt

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photography

Sometimes I can’t believe how lucky I am in my job. Being booked to shoot Vicky and Matt’s Elixir Ibiza wedding photography was definitely one of those moments. I’d met Vicky and Matt when I shot Debbie and Karl’s wedding at The Saddleworth Hotel in 2013. At the time Vicky was thinking of heading off abroad for a destination wedding and she asked if I traveled (which I emphatically said yes to!) A few months later Vicky and Matt had found their dream venue and had set their hearts on Ibiza and Elixir Shore Club. So I booked a Jet2 flight and in the middle of August flew out to the White aisle for my first ever Elixir Ibiza wedding photography job!

Wedding in Ibiza

Vicky was getting ready in Cala Llonga so I met her there for the bridal prep before sharing her taxi over to Cala Codolar to Elixir Shore Club. What a venue. A shabby chic paradise, set high on the cliffs over a small beach, Elixir is something else. Vicky was walked down the aisle by her brother before Matt and Vicky shared their wedding blessing in front of the stunning views of the sea. With glorious sun shining down it was one of the those moments where I had to remember I was actually working. A totally amazing service finished and the open bar started (so I knew it was going to be an amazing wedding). Although it did get a little hot (even the staff said it was a little warmer than usual, peaking at just over 40 degrees), everyone soaked up the sun and prosecco before I took the wedding party down to the beach for the group shots. Vicky and Matt didn’t want anything boring or stuffy, so we set the lads up to look cool and the girls to have fun. I LOVE the group shots, easily some of my favourite I’ve taken.

Ibiza Sunset

I was then invited to eat with the wedding party and I can hand on heart say this was the best wedding food I’ve ever eaten. A barbecue to beat all barbecue’s. It’s worth having your wedding at Elixir Shore Club for the food alone it’s that good. Then, as the sun started to set I grabbed Vicky and Matt and we went back down to the beach to get the classic Ibiza sunset in the couple shots. It was a spectacular experience and I think the shots do the sunset justice, before we headed back to the speeches and a huge party (which I get thoroughly involved with when the Nikon’s were packed away!)

Without doubt, the coolest wedding of the year and one of the highlights of my wedding photography career. Ibiza is a brilliant venue for your wedding blessing and Elixir is one of the best venues I’ve ever worked at. A stunning venue with amazing views and it’s run brilliantly by the team there. I cannot recommend it highly enough and if you are planning on heading out there, I’m more than up for a some more Elixir Ibiza wedding photography.
