Hi! I’m Lisa.
I am a wedding and couples photographer based near Birmingham, West Midlands. I travel around the UK photographing fun couples in love and tell unique & joyful stories all over the world.

Stunning countryside, historic cities, and a proud industrial heritage make the Midlands region of the UK one of the prettiest locations to host your wedding! From the picturesque Wye River Valley to the stunning Malvern Hills, there’s plentiful gorgeous countryside to enjoy, while historic and attractive towns like Warwick and Stamford are home to wedding venues where you can tie the knot in style.

The Midlands is renowned for producing some incredible musicians too – Just think of all the bands and artists Birmingham alone has churned out! Black Sabbath, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, Duran Duran, The Spencer Davis Group, UB40, and countless others all hail from the Midland’s financial and cultural epicentre, which to this day hosts a vibrant live music scene.

You, lovely reader, are getting married at the most amazing time – the opportunities for hiring a unique venue are endless. So many places – old theatres, cinemas, museums; buildings filled with history and character – are opening their doors to weddings. As a wedding blogger I love discovering new places to get hitched, and when I can share the experience with all of you lovely lot it makes me so happy! Today we join beautiful bride Najma and her gorgeous groom Jeff as they tie the knot at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. It’s probably the only wedding venue with a touring dinosaur… or is it?! Dippy’s making his way around the UK until 2020, dinosaur fans!

Happy June! Where did May go… is it just me or is 2018 flying by?! I’m delighted to be sharing a wedding from one of our exclusive little team of sponsors on the blog today – lovely Birmingham wedding photographer Clive Blair. Clive’s a documentary-styled wedding photographer, based in Birmingham and working throughout the UK and abroad for couples who want a relaxed and informal style of wedding photography. We think he’s fab!

James and Lizzie married at Bordesley Park Farm in Beoley Vale, Worcestershire – an exclusive wedding venue surrounded by 500 acres of beautiful countryside giving the perfect backdrop for a wonderful wedding. The weather was gloriously sunny from beginning to end – and Clive’s golden hour shots of the happy couple are just breathtaking!
