  • Welcome to the blog for Katy Lunsford Photography. You're probably here because you're getting married, love weddings, love photography, or all of the above. That's good, because they are my favourite things too - especially if you add beautiful, artistic, detail-filled and stylish to the mix. I am a fine art wedding photographer who adores natural light and outdoor celebrations, pastel tones and the soft hues of film photography. I hope you'll stay a while, so why not pour yourself a glass of something lovely (mine's a crisp, pale rosé) and soak up the wedding pretty. If you’re a bride-to-be (or groom-to-be!), and you like what you see, let’s get together sometime to chat a little more…

Hollie and Reid’s Suffolk wedding was pretty much perfect. When the bride is features editor for You and Your Wedding magazine you expect nothing less! (And in light of Hollie’s job, it was huge compliment to be asked to capture her big day!) Being immersed in the world of weddings, I knew Hollie would have an abundance of gorgeous ideas and the day would be filled to the brim with pretty details and creativity, and it was wonderful to see her creative vision come to life!

The wedding took place at Easton Grange, a beautiful light barn venue in the Suffolk countryside. The colour palette was a gorgeous pale mint, soft pink and gold, with French inspired details – Hollie and Reid met in France – and cute canine décor – a nod to the couple’s adorable sausage dog Darcy.  There were gold-dipped feathers, an epic cake (made by Hollie’s amazing Mum!), sequin chevron table runners, a macaron tower, beautiful blooms and a hand-made ferris wheel filled with sweet treats (made by Hollie’s talented Dad!).

Hollie looked absolutely breathtaking in the dress – Ohhhh the dress! A stunning Peter Langner creation with flower detail, a soft pink sash and beautiful matching veil. Reid was every bit the handsome groom in navy and the bridesmaids looked gorgeous in soft pink. Aside from the aesthetics, I was struck by the love and laughter and tears and joy and sense of family that was so evident throughout the day. The ceremony was poignant and personal, the food delicious (thank you!!), the speeches eloquent, moving and entertaining, including a speech from the bride herself. I was so touched by so many moments in the day, and shed a tear on more than one occasion.

The wedding ended with a fabulous evening party, with an incredible choreographed first dance – featuring a lift and a confetti canon – a packed dance-floor, amazing live singer, and later on a beautiful father-daughter dance. More tears! What a wonderful day – and such an honour to be a part of it :)

Enough words, here are the photographs. Shot on a mixture of film and digital cameras, with scans by UK Film Lab. I hope you enjoy them.

A few more images from the Feather & Stone Fine Art Film Photography workshop at ‘Hameau Des Baux in Provence last year. (Slowly catching up on the blogging!). I adored Dani’s 60s/70s-style dress and amazing floral crown, set off perfectly by her gorgeous flowing red hair. And François, every bit the suave and stylish Frenchman in red trousers and braces. What a cool couple! The sun was just going down behind the olive groves, casting some beautiful golden light through the trees – my favourite time of day to shoot. This was an important moment in my journey with film, as it was actually the first time I was brave enough to shoot just film – I left the digital camera in my room – and I loved how liberating it felt. Framing the image, waiting for the moment, the click of the shutter… but without constantly looking at the back of the camera… it felt so much more creative and intuitive, and just flowed more naturally. And then to get these scans back was mindblowing! The journey continues, with most of last year’s wedding’s being shot on both film and digital, with some gorgeous results. This summer I plan to continue as a ‘hybrid shooter’, but with the proportion of film increasing. And summer 2016? Maybe it will be all film :)

All scans by the amazing Richard Photo Lab.

It’s always such an honour to have my work published, especially in my favourite wedding magazine, and this feature is extra-special. Beautiful bride Hollie is the features writer for You & Your Wedding magazine, so I was really blown away when she asked me to be her wedding photographer. As someone immersed in the wedding industry, I knew the wedding would be overflowing with pretty details and gorgeous ideas, and that Hollie would look absolutley stunning in her dress. The wedding, held at Easton Grange in the Suffolk countryside, exceeded even my high expectations, and was also a wonderful family occasion fillled with love, laughter and beautiful moments. I shed a tear more than once! I will be blogging the wedding in full soon (just wait til you see the first dance!) but here is the lovely magazine feature. It’s even better in print, and is out now, so pop to the shops and treat yourself to the whole magazine!
