She says of her Photography…


“I always knew that I would find my passion eventually, it just took me 15 years of working in insurance to find it.”

“I’ve always been super creative, whether it was writing & publishing cookbooks or painting, I just love to make things. And I always knew that I should be doing something creative.”

“So when my husband Andrew bought me my first DSLR camera back in 2006, little did he know that he would awaken a monster…”

“I think he expected that it would be another fad, like the hand painted christmas cards or the cookbooks, but much to his suprise (and mine) all these years later I’m still as passionate about photography as I was then.”

“In 2007 I started my first website & blog, I documented the highs and lows of photography and my own life behind the lens.”

“I fell in love with photography, and with Andrew’s support, I took the huge leap into wedding photography in 2010.”

“I adored documenting all the special moments on the wedding day and telling the story of such a wonderful day. I fell in love with photography, and nothing else has filled me with as much enthusiasm & enjoyment.”


I hand you over to gorgeous Bride Vicki…


How did you meet?

“Brett and I met the very first day at University.”

“Being called to the Uni induction, we bumped into each other in the hall way of our new shared flat, introduced ourselves and got so chatty I forgot to say bye to my Mum and Grandma!!”

“I remember in this induction the presenter told everyone to look to the person stood next to them as they could be the person that you marry and spend the rest of your life with…”

“I looked at Brett and thought ‘whoa I’d definitely marry you…’ and 8 and a half years later there we were getting married.”


When did you get engaged?

“We got engaged on the 28th October 2013, on our 7 year anniversary.”

“Brett laid out a candle lantern pathway that lead to bunting that he had handmade, with photo’s on.”

“Each photograph representing a memory from each of the years we had been together, along with a playlist of our songs and a nervous speech.”

“He proposed at a beautiful spa hotel in Blackburn called Stanley House Hotel and Spa.”


Tell us about your wedding planning journey

“Our wedding planning journey was one with a lot of highs and lows.”

“In the 18 months we were engaged I lost the two dearest and closest people to me, in my life.”

“The wedding planning allowed us to smile through these times and brought us out of the darkness. Though always tinged with sadness at what my Grandma and Grandad were not here to share with us.”

“When Brett and I graduated from University we went travelling around the World for 6 months.”

“We visited Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and America. When we got engaged travel seemed the perfect theme and fit for our wedding.”

“It was the best 6 months of our lives that gave us such fond memories and experiences that we will take with us forever.”

“Once we decided on the theme we thought about colours etc, I didn’t want any pink or purple and had always dreamed of a gold wedding so the theme naturally developed to a Vintage inspired Travel Wedding and we went for a pale lemon yellow colour for bridesmaids and flowers.”

“The yellow naturally developed from sentiment, Brett’s favourite colour is yellow and my Father’s favourite flower was a yellow rose as it means friendship and he believed that without friendship you couldn’t have true love.”

“The bouquets had favourite flowers of me, my Grandma, Grandad and my Father in, which made them very sentimental and precious.”

“All yellow and whites. Val at Garden Room Flowers did such an amazing job with them. They far exceeded what I expected.”

“We knew straight away which Church we would be married in.”

“My beautiful Grandma got diagnosed with secondary breast cancer in her brain only 3 days after we got engaged and unfortunately passed away only 3 weeks later.”

“We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to discuss the wedding and make some plans with her in this time. She told us it would mean so much to her for my Great Uncle, whom she adored, to marry us…”

“That was settled, my Uncle Daniel was marrying us at The Holy Trinity Church in Little Ouseburn… and it couldn’t have been a more perfect church.”

“We wanted to get my Grandad in on the planning to help raise his spirits a little and so one day in February 2014 he took us around every single venue in North Yorkshire that we had on our list.”

“The perfect ones seemed to be out of budget and the in budget ones just didn’t seem perfect enough…”

“Getting a little upset and frustrated my Grandad suggested we go to a venue that he knew well and often went with his fishing buddies… as you can imagine I wasn’t that keen but he said he would treat us to a Sunday lunch so we were in.”

“That’s when we first saw The Bridge Hotel & Spa. Funnily enough there was a wedding fayre on.”

“Brett and I looked round the place and we just instantly fell in love with it, it was perfect AND in budget. ”

“Needless to say my Grandad was sat there with a proud smirk on his face.”

“The fact that my Grandad chosen the venue became very important and sentimental to us in the end as my Grandad then sadly passed away in December 2014 of a stroke. Although, I believe it was a broken heart at losing his love of over 45 years.”

“We wanted candles, soft glows and fairy lights so now armed with our theme, church and venue we hit Pinterest and Blogs looking for ideas and inspiration.”

“Slowly during a 12 month period I collected glass jars through family, friends and work and individually decorated around 80 jars.”

“These were for the table centre pieces and the Italian Courtyard at The Bridge. I brought the gold in through the flower jars, table swags and chair covers. My friend made us hessian bunting to decorate the venue with to finish off the vintage theme.”

“Each table was named after a country we had travelled to with a photograph of us in each of those places as the table name.”

“I handmade the table plan with a couple of friends, we bought a vintage looking map and used twine and luggage tags to connect the guests to the country they would be sitting ‘in’.”

“Each luggage tag then had the relevant photograph on it so that guests could match the photos to their table.”

“We found these beautiful small travel chests from www.confetti.co.uk that we used to hold the favours. The favours were a cancer research badge for each guest; we made a donation to cancer research in memory of both of our Grandma’s and to honour them and help kick cancer’s butt at the same time.”

“As the wedding drew closer Brett started getting more excited and more involved. He found map designed paper airplanes (again from www.confetti.co.uk) that we thought were perfect for the place names.”

“These turned out to be a huge hit with the guests as it provided quite a lot of entertainment as they waited for their starters and mains!”

“My husband and I also love photos and I am very sentimental – so after finding a photobooth at a wedding Fayre we decided we just had to have it. It was so much fun and every single guest loved it, the results of it are fantastic!!!”

“Because the perfect photos are very important to us, we spent a lot of timing looking for the perfect photographer.”

“We were recommended Maryanne Scott through another photographer and so we arranged to meet her.”

“Maryanne was lovely from the beginning, she made us feel at ease and we got a preshoot shoot to help us decide if we liked her style. We loved her style and we couldn’t have found a better photographer for our wedding. We are so pleased with the results.”

“We also had a live band and a DJ as Brett’s school friends are in a band and are fantastic, it meant a lot for Brett to have his old friends playing for his wedding. They’re called Moonlight Rumours.”


When did you get married?

“We got married on the 29th May 2015.”


What was the best bit of your day? “I would have to say our best bits were saying our vows and our first dance.”

“We took dance lessons as we wanted to do something more than shuffling on the dance floor and we just loved it!! We took the lessons through First Dance UK and had Simone who was fantastic.”


What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

We had lots of trouble with people telling us what we should and shouldn’t be doing.”

“It’s easier said than done but stay true to what you and your fiancé want for YOUR day and be assertive with it, it’s the day you will remember as yours for the rest of your life, you want it your way.”

“Take time out on the day, just 10 minutes just the two of you to take it all in. It goes so fast that before you know it the day is over and it’s become a blur.”

“I would say, one, get a videographer so you can relive those moments over and again and two, maybe try a sweetheart table, especially if you’re from a divorced family that don’t particularly get on.”

“It will allow you to enjoy each other for an hour and a half, take in what’s happening and enjoy your guests and also takes care of all those difficult decisions of who should sit on the top table, where and why.”
