Ahead of the Kew Gardens wedding showcase on Sunday, I've been leafing through 2016's weddings and wanted to share this lovely day. Ed and Inga got married in Westminster Cathedral, with reception at Cambridge cottage in Kew. I actually couldn't contain my excitement when we found out the apple blossom had bloomed late and we had a whole avenue of blossom tress to shoot in at golden hour, just before sunset.

Charlotte & Dylan's wedding was an incredible day. The service was held in the local church in Lytchett Matravers in Dorset - the church local to the couple (that also happened to be picture perfect) followed by a reception in the stunning grounds of Dean's Court, Wimborne. There were personal touches aplenty, talented family and friends providing entertainment, some of the most beautiful flowers I've seen and topped off by the absolutely stunning Charlotte and lovely Dylan who brushes up rather well too! Thank you both for letting me share your pictures.

Please take a look at the gallery for more (look out for the night time lake shot, it's one of my faves). Thanks for viewing.

On Sunday I went on a day trip from Sheffield to St Anne's, Lancashire to see my Great Aunt Martha with my parents and little boy Otto. Aunt Martha celebrated her 104th birthday on Tuesday. Yes, 104. An amazing age, but what's more amazing is her zest for life, natural energy, wit, warmth and kindness. At the end of our visit I took these photos, which she made such good fun, getting us to all shout 'Cheese Sandwiches', posing and showing us the leg and core exercises she does every time the adverts come on the TV! She loved Otto, who she met 2 years ago too - and he was charming as ever, shouting 'Interesting!' as he grabbed at all her ornaments...

Aunt Martha is the older sister of my Grandma Olive, on my Dad's side. It was fantastic to hear Dad and her reminisce about my Dad's childhood trips from Sheffield to the Wakefield countryside as a boy. Happy birthday to an inspiring lady. xxx

Just take a look at these two. Absolute babes! Diana and Amit had a Hindu ceremony at the beautiful Stoke Place in Buckinghamshire. The wedding was a high energy and fun filled day, where the party and fun didn't even pause for breath. Tom and I even joined in for a bit of a dance at the end... Stoke Place is a really memorable wedding venue, ideal if you love a manor house backdrop but with cool interior design. It has grounds to die for, including a lake, reed beds and a walled garden that make it ideal for creative fine art wedding photography.

Thanks for stopping by. Karina x

Beatles fans take note... Here are some pictures form one of our favourite weddings of 2015 at St Peter's Church, Woolton and The Bluecoat, Liverpool. Photographing a wedding at St Peter's amazing. It's not only where the song Eleanor Rigby was written about, but also where the Beatles first met. In perfect keeping with this, the wedding was photobombed by the Magical Mystery tour bus, packed full of lovely tourists who took their own snaps of the wedding party. We then moved on to photograph at the Strawberry Fields gates. If you can't beat'm, join'm... We lit Steph and Carl with an incredible gold reflector, and even pulled a few passing tourists in to the frame for a bit of fun. The reception was at the stunning Bluecoat Gallery in Liverpool town centre. This gallery and events space has always been one of my favourites - contemporary concrete interiors and jaw-dropping Georgian courtyard. The staff at the Bluecoat were brilliant too - very accommodating and upbeat. We're happy to now be a recommended supplier of The Bluecoat, which makes us very happy! Thanks to Steph and Carl for being brilliant to photograph and great fun.
