Weddings and Children.

Our favourite weddings are always those where the couple choose to place the emphasis of their day not on formalities and tradition but on having an amazing celebration with all of their friends and family. To us a wedding is all about celebrating your love and having plenty of fun in the process and when it comes to having fun it’s always the kids that lead the way at weddings!

Children are often a key muse in our wedding photography, particularly when their infectious enthusiasm starts to make big kids of everyone! We try to maintain a childlike fascination in our photography and it never ceases to amaze us how differently children see the world. So, as Katherine and Jamie’s big day was full of children’s entertainment from Punch & Judy to balloon hats and animals, we thought we’d create a little blog post dedicated to those smaller members of a wedding party that so often help to create the heart and soul of the day.

Thanks so much to Katherine and Jamie for inviting us to be a part of such an amazing wedding and to all the kids for showing everyone how to truly have a great time!
