A job doesn’t get much better when you can combine everything you love. My passion for photography, getting to be creating with wonderful wedding dresses, pretty flowers, sparkly jewellery, working with Stuart who was 2nd shooting with me on this wedding, celebrating special occasions with happy people & of course … cake! So how pleased was I that I could combine all of these with Nicki & Rob’s Wedding.
Nicki & Rob popped over a few weeks before their wedding to chat through their day & have a few informal practise shots as they were a little nervous about having their pictures taken. I know they were nervous but they really had no need to be. They are a lovely couple with great personalities & who obviously adore each other & this shone through in the images I captured :).
Stuart & I headed to Nicki’s house to first capture all the pretty details of the dress, shoes, flowers etc as well as Nicki & her bridesmaids’ preparation. It was clear from the beginning that this was going to be a lovely feel-good wedding.
After spending some time with the girls we headed to Allesley Church in Coventry to photograph Rob with his two best men & usher. Rob was happy for fun & formal photograph so we made the most of it by getting the lads to star jump & give Rob the bumps!
It was a lovely service conducted by Robin &, once finished, we spent a little time getting some of the group shots Nicki & Rob had asked for, as well as the first of the shots of Nicki & Rob as husband & wife.

We’d had a bad spell with the weather & I knew Nicki had been worried that her wedding would be a wash out. She’d hired out some lovely pretty white parasol type umbrellas. Nicki hadn’t needed to have been worried as the weather ended up being glorious. However, it would have been an awful waste to not have used the parasols & as well as some lovely shots with the couple we had great fun with the youngest bridesmaid and Nicki’s two cheeky twin brothers.
We finished our photographic coverage after the speeches, which went down very well, particularly the double act from the best men which comprised of a slide show, showing various embarrassing photos as well as reminiscing about the antics of a younger Rob.
Nicki & Rob’s wedding was a fantastic & fun wedding to photograph. Below are a few of my favourite images we took from the day.
