Rose and Jake were married on May 31st, with a ceremony at St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church and a reception at Hazel Gap Barn in Budby, Nottinghamshire.
These two have been together since they were 16 after they met in school. Jake proposed in July of 2016, and since then, they have been looking forward to promising the rest of their lives to each other.
Rose told me that she found me through my website after looking through my gallery. I love it when clients tell me things like that, because it means that they have done their research and know what my style of photography is. I’m so pleased they chose me and that our styles meshed so well to produce amazing pictures of their day.
But that’s typical of the way that Rose approached her wedding planning. They had a relaxed, feel-good approach to the whole day that bled into everyone and everything around them. After the day was over and I asked them about their experience, in fact, they said that their favourite part of the day was when they got to chat with their guests and relax in the courtyard.

The venue reflected that warmth and ease, too. Not only was it local for Rose and Jake—I always encourage my couples to find a place that has an emotional connection like that—but it was perfect for all kinds of weather, too. The barn could be used in case of rain, but the courtyard was also beautiful. Since both of them love the countryside and the relaxed feeling of being surrounded by fields, the Hazel Gap Barn perfectly fit their garden party theme.
Of course, my favourite part of the wedding day wasn’t the venue or the reception drinks but the moment Jake got up to give his speech. He couldn’t contain his emotions and had to take a few seconds to compose himself on several occasions. It was a touching moment—and one that I can completely relate to.
Jake & Rose, thank you for asking me to be part of your wedding day. I wish you both nothing but the best together.
