When I get a credit for “Beer” in a couple’s list of favourite suppliers, I know to expect a pretty special wedding. (Tip: there’s no place for Carling at weddings!) – and Rachel & Shaun’s day lives up to expectations, flies past them in a blaze of beauty and leaves me wanting more. Their day was epic. They’re a gorgeous couple, the vibe of the entire day is joyful – the smiles never stop from bridal prep through to the evening spent crowdsurfing. I love these two. All images are by Midlands wedding photographer and English Wedding member J S Coates Wedding Photography, who gets a glowing review from our happy couple!

How did you choose your photographer?

We looked through loads of different local photographers’ websites and eventually narrowed it down to three, who we then met up with to see if we clicked. Jonathan had such a great attitude, and his relaxed style was exactly what we were after.
