‘You sound crazy. We like that.’  This was Laura’s opening line when she emailed me about photographing her and Joe’s wedding.  I love Laura and Joe they’re crazy. We hit it off from the start. They don’t do things normally. Their wedding was almost entirely diy with vinyl record bowls, bunting made from old record sleeves, fake tattoo transfers for the guests and a guitar guest book called Evelyn. There were no speeches and no sit down meal it was much more of a party than a wedding. They wanted loads and loads of portraits. I took loads and loads of portraits. Here is their epic DIY wedding at The Engine Shed in Lincoln, a mass explosion of colour and loads of laughs.

Check out Laura’s amazing dress by The Couture Company and her awesome bouquet by Jamball Creations.


‘Yvonne was the best photographer I could have ever hoped for on my big day she was fun and friendly and we got on like a house on fire. The photographs are beautiful and we will cherish them forever..’
