My top tip for you today, lovelies, is to find a place you love and get married there. It can be that simple… and you don’t have to go out of your way to find a place you love, if there’s already a place! You might have a favourite country pub, or a local beach with amazing views, or a city centre restaurant.

The inspiration for the shoot started with a visit to the wonderful Great Fulford and the beautiful but slightly dilapidated rooms with their bare brick and peeling plaster. It automatically evoked feelings of Great Expectations for me and Miss Havisham’s dining room. A feel of faded beauty and elegance which I thought would be a beautiful backdrop for a shoot.

My aim was to inspire couples to realise the opportunity to set their wedding in more unusual places than your average manor house – that industrial and run down spaces could be the perfect backdrop for a wedding.
