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.

Hey gorgeous! Are you feeling refreshed after the sunny weekend? I have some treats in store for you this week… and we’re starting today with a beautiful reminder that things WILL go back to normal and we WILL have parties and hugs and proper weddings again. I’m desperately hoping it’s soon – because this kind of loveliness is too special to miss. Lexi and Chris’s wedding had everything: an outdoor ceremony under an ancient tree with Chris’s military kit giving the occasion a certain gravitas… and Lexi is just STUNNING! They celebrated with a tipi reception and festival / fete inspired party afterwards, and the dancing went on until the early hours. Memories, hey? For now, let’s celebrate with this gorgeous pair.

With love,

When Jonathan emailed me and mentioned “the coolest wedding dress ever” I was hooked! This is a beaut of a wedding: full of fun, colour and the most wonderful DIY details. Jade & Matt tied the knot at Newland Bishop Farm in May, with a festival themed day and a tipi reception. There were space hoppers, pom poms, blasts of colour EVERYWHERE, a picnic… a totally chilled out wedding. Photographer Jonathan – JS Coates Wedding Photography – described Jade & Matt’s day as “a burst of colour and smiles”. Just what we need on our screens right now, I think!

How did you choose your photographer?

We had searched through tonnes of pics of wedding shots on instagram and immediately fell in love with Jonathan’s pictures. They were amazing and we knew that he was the one for us! They were timeless and yet very modern, with a relaxed vibe… we hate formal shots!
