It’s not unusual for us to be contacted anything up to around 2 years in advance by couples planning their wedding. So when Amanda and Martin got in touch with us about their September 2019 wedding in June (yes of this year) it was nice to have a surprise addition to the diary. Not least because they mentioned that they’d be including their gorgeous dogs too. If there’s anything that’s going to make me desperate to secure a booking, it’s dogs!
We met Amanda & Martin in person for the first time just one week before their wedding, for their engagement session. We’ll be getting around to blogging that soon, so do keep an eye out for that. We knew then that their day was going to bea barrel of laughs because they were so relaxed and just seemed to take everything in their stride. Which ended up being their greatest blessing as the weather wasn’t exactly on their side last weekend! None the less, the day absolutely flew by and there were countless laughs and memorable moments.
We also absolutely loved some of their personal touches. All the wedding flowers were made by Amanda’s (very clever) mum for example. And they also played bingo following their wedding breakfast. Not forgetting the lovely pooches either! We love it when couples include personal elements.
Whilst we work on their full wedding gallery here are just a few teasers from the day. Please feel free to leave your comments for us, or for the new Mr & Mrs Miller at the end of this post.

Be excellent to each other
We believe in supporting other small businesses. One of the ways we do this is by making sure other suppliers are credited for their work. In order to do this, we rely on our couples sharing supplier information with us, but understandably they will not always have these to hand at the point of discussion. Using the supplier information provided for us, we create the credits list that you’ll find below. If you find that your details are missing, or are incorrect, please get in touch and we will happily amend. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you need it.
In return, we kindly ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. Please respect our work and our profession by seeking permission before you share any photographs commercially (for business social media accounts/websites etc) and ensure that images are tagged and credited. We can be found on most social media platforms as @samandlouisephotography. The files used in this blog are small, web sized, low resolution files so please do not screenshot, save and re-upload as the quality will be poor. If you require any images, please email us directly. Any images used commercially without prior consent will be invoiced.
