Phil is a brilliant artist who has captured moments from our intimate wedding that we will cherish for a lifetime. Put simply, our wedding would not be the day that it was, if it wasn’t for Phil. His creativity is astounding and his pictures simply breath-taking. On the wedding day we saw rain, we saw sunshine, and we embraced it all with Phil by our side; who was effortlessly making sure we were not hindered by the ever-changing Shropshire weather! And when a break from the rain emerged, Phil suggested a spontaneous photo opportunity at the nearby Clun Castle, and words cannot express how thankful we are for that one suggestion, because the images Phil managed to capture were the best images we have ever seen – they’re stunning, romantic, dramatic, and just everything you would want your wedding photos to be and more!
We all smile in awe at the spectacular story Phil has told of our special day, and so we cannot recommend him enough. Phil – thank you for being so wonderful, and for sharing your talents and creativity with us. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you, and we cannot wait for our paths to cross again.

Benefits of a micro wedding
There are numerous benefits to having a micro wedding, making it an appealing choice for couples who value intimacy and meaningful connections. One of the main advantages is the ability to create a more relaxed and stress-free atmosphere. With fewer guests to accommodate, couples can focus on spending quality time with their loved ones, rather than worrying about seating arrangements or managing a large crowd.
Another benefit of a micro wedding is the opportunity to allocate your budget more intentionally. With fewer guests to cater for, couples can invest in high-quality elements that will make their day truly unforgettable. Whether it’s a world-class photographer to capture every precious moment or a live band to provide the perfect soundtrack to the celebration, a micro wedding allows you to prioritise what matters most to you.
Additionally, a micro wedding allows for a more personal and intimate experience. With a smaller guest list, couples can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, where every guest feels valued and appreciated. This enables meaningful interactions and connections, ensuring that the memories created on your special day will be cherished for a lifetime.
Choosing the perfect venue
Selecting the perfect venue for your intimate wedding is crucial to creating the right atmosphere and setting the tone for your celebration. This is where the Grain Loft truly excelled, the whole area screams beauty, the rustic charm and gorgeous Shropshire countryside truly makes this unique wedding venue, special.
Photography tips for capturing intimate moments
Capturing the intimate moments of any wedding is essential to preserving the memories of your special day. Nick and Sabrina saw this as one of their utmost priorities and I can only thank them for their faith and trust in doing so. When you come to select your own photographer, review their portfolio to ensure that their style fits with your expectations. Look for those who excel in capturing candid and natural moments, as these will be the ones that truly reflect the joy and intimacy of any wedding celebration.
Communicate your vision and expectations to your photographer and videographer. Share any specific moments or details that you want them to capture, ensuring that they have a clear understanding of your priorities.
During the wedding day, trust your photographer to capture the moments as they unfold. Be present in the moment, allowing yourself to fully experience the love and joy surrounding you. Remember, it’s the genuine and heartfelt moments that will be the most cherished in your wedding album.
Personal touches and meaningful details of a small intimate wedding
One of the advantages of a smaller wedding is the ability to infuse it with personal touches and meaningful details. These details will not only make your wedding unique but also reflect your personalities and love story.
Celebrating love in a more intimate way
As you start the planning of your wedding, remember that it is a celebration of your love for one another that is the single most important aspect. regardless of how many guests you have, enjoy the day and please don’t worry about the weather. If it rains, it will rain no matter how many guests you have. I have a post all about rainy wedding days here.
So embrace everything and enjoy your beautiful journey to a married couple.
I am always amazed at how couples find their way to me, and each and every wedding, micro or massive, are always a privilege to capture. Thank you Nick and Sabrina for your faith and trust. It truly was a massive joy to meet you guys.
