Midlands Wedding Guide magazine front covers
It’s always nice when your work is published in a wedding magazine. But having one of your photos featured on a front cover is something else!
Even though I know when they’re coming, it’s still a ‘pinch myself’ moment when I get to hold the printed copy in my hands. I’m so proud of these front covers for Silverlinings Wedding Magazine.
It takes a team to make cover-worthy photos though. And I’m hugely thankful to everyone (locations, dress designers, hairstylists, make-up artists and models) who helped bring these to life.
Spring Summer 2020
This cover photo of Lily was shot in the White Room at Holdenby House as part of a Downton Abbey inspired shoot which is featured inside the magazine. The dresses, by Eliza Jane Howell, were such a treat to work with! I loved every minute!

Boughton House, the location for this shoot, has the most amazing architecture. It’s a sweet shop for photographers! So given that, this shot was taken in a rather unlikely place … the doors to an old stable! I couldn’t resist the texture and minimal colour which suited the balloons beautifully.

I shot the image for this cover (original on the left) in the rose garden at Boughton House in Northamptonshire.

This image was produced in the orangery at Weston Hall which is a new wedding venue near Towcester in Northamptonshire. Check out this blog post to see more photos from this shoot which (very happily) also appear in Weston Hall’s wedding brochure.

This is the one that started the trend! This photo was shot in the Dower House at Boughton House. We went on a wonderful journey back in time shooting this. I adore the faded grandeur of this (genuine) vintage floral wallpaper. Click here to see more images from this shoot.
