Jess & Joe's Derbyshire Wedding
Jess & Joe's wedding at Newton House Barns was so gorgeous and full of love and laughter. For a full day insight have a look at the slideshow I created!
"We cannot recommend Lucie enough as a wedding photographer! She was absolutely fantastic, from our first Skype conversation right through to our wedding day. Lucie was so easy going and organised in the lead up to the wedding which made the planning process so much easier for us.
On the day, Lucie and Jamie were absolutely amazing. They just floated around in the background, capturing the essence of our day for us right from bridal and groom prep all the way through to the evening. They were brilliant at organising everyone for the group shots and were very efficient in this which meant people weren’t standing around for ages waiting to have their photo taken. They also made these shots really fun for people with the various little tricks they had up their sleeves!
Something that was really important for us was that they fit so naturally into the day, capturing so many beautiful, natural moments where we and our guests were just enjoying ourselves. This was one of the reasons we chose Lucie in the first place, as we believed she could capture these moments well and she did not disappoint.
Our couple shots were a lovely opportunity for us to take a breath and just be together as bride and groom, something we weren’t really expecting in the madness of the day and with so many guests! Having a pre-wedding shoot really helped with this, as we were familiar with Lucie and Jamie and how they worked. They were so natural and non-invasive in these shots, meaning we could just appreciate the time we were spending together and we just got used to hearing the camera snap away in the background as we were doing this!
One more thing that should be highlighted is how helpful they both were throughout the day, going far above and beyond what you would expect from your photographers. From sorting out my dress and holding my bouquet to going and fetching some vaseline (without even being asked) when my dress was rubbing against my arms, they were so observant and always on hand to help in whatever way they could.
We strongly recommend Lucie as a wedding photographer. She will capture your day beautifully!"

Newton House barns in Derbyshire is a gorgeous venue with a lot of outdoor space, perfect for my style of wedding photography. We managed to explore different parts of the grounds in a couple of 20 minute portraits slots during the day to allow Jess & Joe some alone time.
