A Kick Ass DIY Back Garden Wedding in North London with the Amazing Tatum & James

Tatum & James were stars. They were fun, energetic, confident, totally into each other and surrounded by awesome family and friends! Without a surprise then, their DIY back garden wedding in the beautiful English countryside in North London near Cambridge was an absolute delight to capture!

How to pick my favourite wedding photos?

So many happy people. Going through their photos it was a challenge to find any of their guests without a smile and having an awesome time. Who could blame them!

From the laughs during the preparation (first time I’ve ever heard Gollum’s eyes being used as a compliment to a bridesmaid) to the beautiful ceremony. From suits that would make Ron Burgundy jealous, tractor wedding car, marquee in their back garden, speeches, food (where I was kindly invited to join the head table), surprise dance off by the bridal & groom parties and an awesome Drummer/DJ combo to take the party into the early hours. What a day!

A Lavender Inspired Engagement Shoot

Both their parents said some really heart-warming things about the engagement session I did with them earlier that summer. That combined with the reaction I got from James & Tatum seeing their photos for the first time yesterday really does make this the best job ever!

PS their engagement session at Hitchin Lavender fields was featured on the wedding blog Love & Lavender. Check it out to learn about their amazing proposal in the mountains.
