Charlotte & Sean’s wedding is simply glorious, with beautiful August sunshine and elegant muted, nude and pastel styling, and some wonderfully romantic moments. The florals are stunning, Pentney Abbey looks fantastic – and there are giggles too (scroll down to see Charlotte’s epic bouquet throw!) An absolutely wonderful wedding with the most amazing images by our friend Rob Dodsworth Photography. Charlotte told us it was “the most romantic summer’s day of my life” – what a beautiful memory to have.
Wedding photographer’s website:
How did you choose your photographer?
We chose Rob based on a recommendation from a friend.
Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!
Absolutely! Rob is funny and we instantly felt at ease with him. We didn’t feel awkward on camera because Rob made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and when he wasn’t taking photos of us, he was in the background naturally capturing the moments that made up our special day.
Tell us about the moment you saw your wedding photos for the first time?
It was incredible, felt like Christmas had come early! Absolutely astounded at the quality of the photos, we were over the moon – all of the emotions of the day came flooding back!

Words of wisdom: share your best piece of advice for other couples:
Leave yourself plenty of time and ask lots of questions, don’t try and please everyone because you never will – be selfish this is your day so have it your way. It may feel tense on the lead up to the day but when it finally comes it will all be worth it.
What’s the best thing about being married?
Completing the circle, sharing the most important day of your life with all the people you love all in one place!
