Bex and Chris married on 26th March this yr, at Love My Costume really helpful venue, the very lovely Dewsall Court docket in Hereford.

Bex, who works within the wedding ceremony trade herself, labored with a wonderful group of suppliers to carry the day collectively. Her David Fielden gown was a discovery at Ivory Tower bridal boutique in Knowle. The day was stuffed with sunshine and absolute pleasure – captured superbly and to good by the unimaginable Maja Tsolo – one other love my gown really helpful provider. I could not adore these photographs extra – they provide me goosebumps! THIS is what weddings are all about.

Get pleasure from!

Bridal Magnificence & Equipment

Hair was styled by Rachael Capocci and make-up was by Mariella Rodhouse I’ve labored a lot with the women prior to now at weddings I’ve photographed they usually’re each angels.

There was no person else I’d have needed as my glam squad!

My earrings have been from Botia’s Equipment. I wore a princess lower diamond ring which was Chris’s mums and a hexagonal ring which was my grandma’s. I additionally wore a signet ring which was my different Grandma’s.

I wore easy Hollywood waves with my veil.

I wore Jo Malone’s ‘Poppy & Barley’, together with Jo Malone’s, ‘Blackberry & Bay’.

the appears

I wore a David Fielden gown, purchased by Ivory Tower, Knowle. My major precedence was to be snug. I did not wish to really feel restricted with tight boning or construction. I needed to have the ability to eat and drink with out ending up with a tummy ache. The design of the gown was so me; it was ‘champagne’ in coloration and I liked the feel of the lace.

My veil (additionally from Ivory Tower) matched my gown, with the identical lace trimming on the finish of the cathedral size.

I looked for just about a full yr for the best shoe. I most likely ordered 10 sneakers and none have been proper, fallacious fashion, not snug. Once I noticed these Jimmy Choo sneakers within the sale, I needed to do it. They’ve (one way or the other) the identical lace because the gown and have been so snug! It was a no brainer!

Planning in a Pandemic

Our authentic wedding ceremony date was meant to be 27th June 2020. We then re-scheduled to 10th April 2021 after which clearly moved it once more to 26th March 2022.

For us, an vital ingredient of the marriage was having Chris’s Canadian aspect of the household capable of journey throughout and be part of the day.

His cousins ​​have been a part of the bridal get together – one of the best man and bridesmaid and her daughters have been our flower ladies. They have been such an integral a part of the marriage and we could not have carried out it with out them.

We even have some pricey associates who dwell in Houston, Texas, who flew over on the Friday, left to fly residence at 4am on the Sunday simply to make the massive day.

The Photographer

Maja’s images is simply beautiful. She captures the heartfelt moments all through the day, not simply the couple pictures (though these are so lovely too). She sees and captures what’s vital. Shut household and associates, the narrative of the day, the emotion.

Her colours are to die for, heat, enchanting, romantic. From the second we spoke, we knew she was the best match for us.

Her ardour is obvious, she works so exhausting and I love her work ethic personally and professionally.

How They Met

I really went to high school and was good associates with Chris’s sister, Faye. We went by life understanding one another, and one another’s household, with the occasional “like” on Instagram. Our paths crossed in 2017 once I was capturing a mutual buddy’s wedding ceremony. However the timing wasn’t proper.

2018 got here round and I posted {a photograph} on Instagram of a brand new neon signal I would purchased for my exhibition stand on the NEC wedding ceremony fayre, which mentioned ‘Fulton’. This caught Chris’s eye, and we have not stopped laughing and speaking since that DM!

It is so great that I met Chris’s mum many instances throughout our teenage years for play dates with Faye, sleep overs, events, and nights out. Chris’s Mum, Phil, sadly handed away 11 years in the past, so it was so particular to have had the chance to know her.

Flowers & Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore David Fielden champagne satin attire in two completely different kinds. My flower woman’s attire have been additionally from David Fielden.

Our florist was Jen from Liberty Lane Flowers. OH MY GOSH, she is a expertise and a few. She works so exhausting, I could not have been extra thrilled with my option to have her as our florist.

The venue really helpful her, I noticed her Instagram and booked her instantly. Jen fully understood my fashion and I had whole belief in no matter she would create. We mentioned the place to place flowers (at Dewsall there’s so many choices of the place to create focal factors) and I just about left the remainder as much as Jen.

There aren’t sufficient constructive descriptive phrases for Jen, she’s grow to be a buddy through the years and I can not suggest her sufficient to brides searching for a florist.


I’ve identified Jake Burgess for a few years. We now have labored collectively and he is an all-round sensible human. We booked one another to shoot one another’s wedding ceremony. Which have been each postponed attributable to covid. I shot his wedding ceremony in October 2021 in Edinburgh.

He was one of many first suppliers booked, and there could not have been anybody else I’d have needed to seize our big day. He works above and past to supply essentially the most mind-blowing footage.

We are going to treasure our movie(s) for the remainder of our days.

The Groom

Chris wore a three-piece, navy dogtooth go well with by Go well with Provide, London and was dressed by Claudia Bonu. He additionally wore a maple leaf lapel pin from Canada, together with the attractive buttonhole created by our florist, Liberty Lane Flowers.

Particulars & Decor

Having captured and seen tons of of weddings, it made it fairly troublesome to pin down a ‘fashion’. Finally, I went for what we love with neutrals, a heat palette, textures and materials.

I needed to attempt and ensure we did not go for something too ‘on development’ as I needed to create an occasion that would not date quickly, that might be straightforward on the attention but elegant.

Favourite second

For Bex – strolling down the steps at Dewsall, with the women ready for me, my sister behind serving to with my gown. I felt like I used to be floating on the air with the nice and cozy breeze coming by the doorways. Strolling all the way down to the church and seeing THAT flower arch was mindblowing.

It was actually buzzing with bees. Strolling within the church with the music was so emotional however my smile was simply HUGE seeing Chris. I additionally liked the speeches.

Chris’s favourite half was once I walked within the church after which simply after the ceremony, seeing all our family and friends collect for confetti. Then getting coated in confetti. (which I hand-made over the area of three years, though including the lavender was a mistake because it went EVERYWHERE!)

Night & Dancing

Our first dance was to Chris Stapleton’s ‘Pleasure of My Life’. We love nation music, and this is only one of our favourite songs ever – it’s so lovely.

We booked our night band, Hitsville Soul Stirrers, by d by Warble Leisure and had Hitsville Soul Stirrers. (@motorcityrevue)

We had a neon signal created to mix our surnames which is now our married title, Mr & Mrs Fulton- Danks. This was created by Sketch & Etch.

Phrases of Wedded Knowledge

Do not go away something to the final minute, prep as far prematurely as you presumably can to cut back stress as a lot as doable and with the intention to benefit from the construct up with out being frantic.

It sounds tacky however purchase some disposable cameras too. I acquired them developed the week after the marriage once I felt somewhat blue, they usually have been wonderful.

Savor each second!

I would have maybe acquired extra individuals to assist with the desk arrange on the Friday. It took longer than I had imagined however apart from that all of it went easily and I would not change a factor!

We did not actually have a price range. We had some contributions to the marriage, which coated the price of the venue rent and catering. Every part else we coated. (would slightly that this half wasn’t publicized although).
