Describe your wedding vision and its style ~
We have decided to celebrate our wedding in a rustic farmhouse in the remote Madonie mountains of Sicily. We love the idea of a relaxed gathering with our very closest friends and family, and wish to replace the formalities of a traditional British wedding with a simple affair, comprising a late afternoon ceremony following by good food, flowing wine and dancing to the wee hours. I guess the overarching style will be Rustic Sicilian, but I am hoping to add a vintage romantic twist!
Your proposal story ~
Sarah is nigh-on impossible to keep a secret from, so when she was spending a week up in Stevenage with her work, I took that as the only opportunity I’d get to surprise her. I booked a lovely restaurant and a room in a stately home near where she was staying and went to the glamour of the Premier Inn, Stevenage North to wait for her to come back after work. I’d kind of resigned myself to the fact that I would be proposing in the car park of the Premier Inn (not particularly scenic!), but then would whisk her away to celebrate our engagement.
That was the plan. After six hours of sitting in the car, waiting for her to arrive back from work, I was asleep and didn’t see her come in. When she called me to say goodnight, there was a somewhat startled exchange as I told her I was waiting right outside…

Because a special touch is required to capture romance from the boy who bought me a dustbin for Valentine’s! Seriously though, on discovering Annamarie, we immediately felt her style reflected our hopes of how our wedding might be. It would mean so much to have her there to inspire us and capture our day.

I'm a Sussex based wedding photographer, but I love to shoot all over the south east of England and if you're planning a destination wedding, I'm all ears.
