I’ve worked with so many amazing couples this year and Jake & Daisy stand up there right at the top. Jake contacted me back in August 2016 with a photograph of his side tattoo and the enquiry to photograph his Lincolnshire wedding, it was no ordinary enquiry and I could tell he’d spent time on my website learning about me and was really keen to have ME at their wedding. That’s always a huge plus point!
They had initially planned to have a laid back relaxed wedding at a farm in Peterborough but just a few weeks before the wedding in July of this year Jake emailed me to say they’d changed all of their ideas and now planned a family dinner on the Friday night at the beautiful Picture Cafe in Grantham, and the next day would have a church wedding and then just some relaxed drinks and a buffet at The Crown pub in Stamford, Lincolnshire. They weren’t staying all day as they had organised a friends classic American car to drive them off to a spa for the start of their honeymoon. I mean, that sounds great to me!!
I love a couple who do things THEIR way and don’t get too caught up in what they ‘ought’ to do; it always provides a much more relaxed day for all involved and therefore I can get even more integrated with my photography.
It definitely paid off. Here are some words from the couple: ” Claudia – what can we say?! Thank you for being part of our wedding weekend! The whole thing was so easy going and it felt like you were a guest more than a photographer & we loved that! You were so natural and I’m delighted we found you – we couldn’t have asked for anyone more relaxed which was exactly what we wanted. The photos are beautiful. They are a stunning insight into the character of the day, of us, of the people you pictured and of you! We’re so grateful… All our love – Daisy & Jake Margiotta!”
