I’m a firm believer in ‘word of mouth’ referrals and I have had many photography reviews along the way.  I have photographed some amazing wedding days over the years and worked with such lovely couples.  And of course I have also photographed many families, large and small on location and here at my studio at the Atkins Building here in Hinckley.  Here are some photography reviews for Lesley Bee Photography,  taken from my Facebook Page, alongside an image from their wedding day.  You can view my wedding gallery of images here    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss your wedding photography requirements in more detail.  I am happy to meet with you for an informal chat about your special day.

Lesley photographed our Wedding at The Impressive Titanic Hotel in Liverpool in February and what an amazing job she did! We seen Lesley before the wedding and spent a lot of her time talking through what we wanted and also what she felt would suit. From the start of the actual Wedding day, she made us both feel comfortable and at ease in her own unique fashion with a great sense of humour, which was much appreciated and very much needed! She makes you feel very relaxed and also makes the rest of the wedding party feel the same, especially parents, sisters, brothers, best men and bridesmaids!! She did a great job at controlling the wedding rabble! and everyone commented on what a fab job she did and what a great personality she is, as well as totally professional with it. We can’t wait to see our photos, but really appreciate the beautiful sneaky previews we’ve already seen…Thanks so much Lesley, you’re a Star! xx  Toni Salters-Warner

Toni and Aaron’s fabulous wedding day at the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool. 

 

I can honestly say Lesley is amazing at what she does. We met Lesley a couple of times before our wedding day including a meeting at our venue. Lesley becomes part of the wedding party and everyone loves her. We picked up our album this week and the pictures are stunning, Lesley captured the whole day beautifully creating a perfect story which is told through our album. I would 100% recommend Lesley to photograph any wedding as she is a natural. Our pictures will be with us forever and we wouldn’t change a thing.  Laura Hayward

From the moment lesley arrived at my house for my daughters wedding we all felt instantly at ease. She is a true professional and works without being demanding. Pictures are stunning, I would highly recommend her, so much so she is doing my other daughters wedding.  Laura Hayward’s Mum. (Julie Kilby.  I have photographed both of her daughter’s weddings)

Laura and Ben’s beautiful wedding day at Warwick House.

Lesley was our photographer for our Wedding in September & she was absolutely brilliant. Her friendly & bubbly personality fitted right in & made us feel so relaxed. Half the time we didn’t even notice she was there & she has captured all the special moments which the pictures prove as they are truly stunning & tell the story of the whole day (which went by in a flash!). We’ve received a lot of comments from our guests on how lovely Lesley was & also what a great job she did at arranging everyone!! Thank you so much Lesley – you really are amazing at what you do & we are so thrilled with our beautiful pictures.  Love Aaron & Melissa Gillespie xXx

Melissa and Aaron’s super lovely day at Ashton Lodge Country House.

 

Lesley was absolutely incredible on our wedding day, the photos are amazing and perfectly capture each moment from start to finish! I don’t know how we’re going to chose our favourites as they’re all so brilliant. Not only is Lesley an amazing photographer she is also great fun to be around, she made everyone feel at ease throughout the day and got on with everyone, particularly the scousers! Thanks so much Lesley, I looked like such a creep today grinning from ear to ear at my desk looking through all the photos! X Katherine Cullen

Super, fun day at Sketchley Grange.

 

I just want to say the biggest thank you ever to Lesley for doing such an amazing job on our big day we are awaiting he photos but i know they will be fab! Lesley is like having a friend at your wedding rather than a photographer that you know Is there! She made us feel so at ease having fun with us and our guests and letting us enjoy our day rather than posing all the time. She is incredible! Can’t wait to catch up with you love Mr and Mrs Gibbins xxx

Katy and Sam’s gorgeous day at Shearsby Bath.

Lesley is such a wonderful person and photographer. It was just like having another friend at the wedding because she is so much fun to be around. She really does give a very personal edge to her services and we cannot wait to use her in the future for family shoots. Fab, beautiful pics! The Chamberlains (Rachal and Tony) xx

Rachael and Tony’s wonderful wedding day at Shearsby Bath.

Don’t even look anywhere else, because this woman is amazing. Not only with the images she captures but with her personality, it really shines through and allows you to feel at ease on your big day. I will always keep in touch with Lesley as she helped keep me going, more than a photographer! Couldn’t of asked for better. And as for her assistant, well you’ll see. If you want all your guests laughing…. book!

All of our family and friends also agree when I say you added some spirit to keep our day going.  Thank you so much Love Sophie & Andrew Steans x

Shearsby Bath Weddings

Shearsby Bath weddings are always perfect!  It’s such a beautiful,  intimate wedding venue with lovely grounds, great staff and I have to say, I have always encountered lovely weather here too…  Must be a perfect little individual mini climate for Shearsby Bath weddings?

shearsby bath wedding photography 0001  Shearsby Bath Weddings

Katy and Sam were married in August 2015, surrounded by absolutely tonnes of family and friends.  It was such a lively, fun day.    From the very first moment I arrived at Katy’s home I knew it was going to be a busy day.  What was clear to see though was that there was absolutely nothing that Katy had forgotten.  Every single detail had been planned by Katy to the finest detail.

I still refer to Katy today as my lovely Grace Kelly bride… We literally had 5 minutes to get a couple of shots of the beautiful bride before we fled out the door over to Northamptonshire for the wedding ceremony.

shearsby bath wedding photography 0006  Shearsby Bath Weddings

We had a bit of a drive to Katy and Sam’s wedding ceremony from Leicestershire over to Slawston in Northamptonshire to the All Saints Church.  In fact, 45 minutes drive to get our bride to the church on time.  However, what a beautiful church in a gorgeous village with many of the residents waiting in the lane to see the arrival of the bride…

Again, Katy and her ‘attention to detail’ shone through with her finishing touches at the church… Lovely.

If Katy was nervous upon arriving at the church, it certainly didn’t show… Look at that smile!

I don’t think I have ever experience a ‘mini hurricane’ at a wedding but for some reason the wind picked up just as we came outside the church after the ceremony and we did have a few fun moments with Katy’s veil…  I love capturing shots like this.  Such good fun.

Of course, a wedding day is not complete without confetti and there was plenty for all the guests.  The more confetti the better is my opinion.

As soon as I arrive at Shearsby Bath, I know that we are in good hands.  As usual, the staff were on hand to welcome the new Mr and Mrs and their family and friends.

The room layout in delicate pinks was just beautiful.

Wedding speeches are one of my favourite parts of the day.  Laughter, tears, a few embarrassing jokes and memories.  Perfect!

shearsby bath wedding photography 0024  Shearsby Bath Weddings

I often find that following the wedding breakfast the couple often want to get a bit of fresh air and when the wedding is in the Summer we still have a lot of light until later in the evening.  This is the perfect opportunity to get back outside and take some more informal, fun photographs.  It also helps that by this point in time the guest might be a bit ‘squiffy’ after a few glasses of bubbly and are more up for some fun photography.

How cute is this bride?!

Cake cutting and first…  And of course the obligatory ‘drunk dancing’… all recorded for prosperity… 🙂  Shearsby Bath weddings are always a delight…

BEE Happy Mr and Mrs  Gibbons

This was a scorcher of a day in August.  The weather was just perfect for Katherine and Nick’s wedding day and I remember this day as vibrant, colourful and fun.

If you require wedding photography at Kilworth House Leicestershire and like this selection of images and my style of photography please do give me a call on 01455 233224.  I am happy to meet with you to talk about your special day, your ideas and inspirations.  Read more about this wedding alongside some more of my memories from this lovely wedding day.

Wedding Photography Kilworth House Leicestershire

wedding photography kilworth house 0001  Wedding Photography Kilworth House LeicestershireThe wedding ceremony took place at St Mary’s Church in Bitteswell.   Katherine grew up in the village and her mum still lives directly behind this beautiful church.  It was literally just 20 or so metres to walk from Katherine’s home where she grew up, into the church that means so much to Katherine and her family.

 

wedding photography kilworth house 0002  Wedding Photography Kilworth House LeicestershireSome really lovely details that meant so much to Katherine and her family.  And of course the beautiful dress, and the all important shoes and flowers.wedding photography kilworth house 0003  Wedding Photography Kilworth House Leicestershire

wedding photography kilworth house 0006  Wedding Photography Kilworth House LeicestershireIt’s so lovely to capture images of the bride with her mother on the morning of her wedding day.  I always find this part of the day emotional but I try as much as possible not to be intrusive.

I love capturing the bride putting on her wedding shoes.  Often, I will clear a space in the room where the bride is getting ready (just a little bit of un-cluttering and moving some stuff out of the way) so that we can capture an elegant shot of some of the finishing touches, such as the spraying of the all important perfume, some final finishing touches to the make up and of course putting on those very special shoes.  wedding photography kilworth house 0008  Wedding Photography Kilworth House Leicestershire

 

wedding photography kilworth house 0010  Wedding Photography Kilworth House Leicestershirewedding photography kilworth house 0011  Wedding Photography Kilworth House LeicestershireNick was a fairly relaxed groom and so this made my job a little easier pre ceremony.  Often the groom is a little on edge just before the ceremony, and if this is the case I will make a note to take more photographs of the Groom, Best man and ushers later in the day when they have had a beer (or two)… 🙂

 

 

wedding photography kilworth house 0014  Wedding Photography Kilworth House LeicestershireKatherine was also walked down the aisle by her mum Margaret and it was pretty emotional for them both.  Margaret really did her daughter proud in her duties with a pretty impressive speech during the wedding breakfast too.  I had to wipe a little tear away at this point in time, as did many members of their family and friends.

Nick’s parents are originally from Liverpool, but now reside in Kent and it was lovely to hear a few ‘scouse’ voices on the day and share some Liverpool banter and laughter.  I especially took a shine to Nick’s lovely grandma – she had that twinkle in her eye and we shared a few jokes throughout the day.

Photographs of Katherine and Nick  when they were children, were placed on the tables and generated a few laughs…

Are you currently researching wedding photography in Leicestershire for your forthcoming wedding day?  These are a selection of images from beautiful weddings, featuring super lovely people at the preparation stages of wedding days.

I love the bridal preparations.  It’s such a lovely time of the day.  You can feel the anticipation in the room.  It’s probably the only time in the whole day when the bride can have some special time with her bridesmaids and of course her parents.  Professional make up and hair and a cheeky glass of champagne to help settle the nerves.  It’s usually full steam ahead once you leave your home / hotel room to marry the man of your dreams…  so it’s especially important to savour this time with those that you love and to enjoy every single moment of getting ready for one of the most important days of your life.

My priority is to capture this part of your wedding day, without taking over.  I love to photograph all of the little details that you have included in your wedding day – your beautiful dress and bridal shoes, your jewellery and tiara, event the perfume you chose to wear on your wedding day.  It’s also lovely to capture the moments with those that are so very special to you.   And, it’s also the time in the day that your new husband was not a part of.

Happy Wedding Planning to all of you ‘Brides to Be’ out there…  Enjoy every moment.

Are you just engaged and planning your wedding day?  Congratulations!  How exciting…

Are you looking for wedding photography in Leicestershire?  Take a look at some highlight wedding images below.

The lovely Liz and Dan were married at St Peter’s Church at Whetstone, followed by a wedding reception at the Hinckley Island Hotel.   I will remember the date of their wedding always – it was also my daughter’s 16th birthday – of course I did check with my daughter when I first received an enquiry for this date, and had the ok to photograph Liz and Dan on their special day.

The weather was absolutely perfect for their very special day.  The sun shone on this adorable couple all day long –  a beautifully perfect Spring day.   We had great fun with Liz, Dan and their bridesmaids and groomsmen after their wedding breakfast, when we went outside to enjoy the early evening sunshine and took some relaxed, candid photographs with Mr and Mrs Nash and the gang.  I always find that some of my best photographs are taken later in the day.  Once the formalities are over, food has been eaten, speeches done and everyone can start to truly relax and start to properly celebrate.  I always take this opportunity to get back outside after the wedding breakfast and really capture everyone at their most relaxed.  It’s absolutely worth doing these shots and my favourite part of the day.

It was also Liz and Dan’s choice not to have a first dance, but to invite all the guests up on the dance floor to join them for a fun dance all together.  Great idea.  Especially if you’re not too keen not he spotlight.   I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to follow protocol on your wedding day.  You should do what you want to do, and not feel pressured to follow the herd.  Make the day about you and who you are as a couple.  Be individual and celebrate in your own style.

If you are looking for your wedding photographer in Leicestershire, you are most welcome to call me on 01455 233224 to arrange a mutually convenient day / time to discuss your wedding photography.   Alternatively you can email me at info@lesleybee.co.uk for further details.

I am only booking in a limited number of weddings in 2015 as I will be focussing on my portrait photography moving forward.

Wishing you many happy days Mr and Mrs Nash – xxx
