Bride and groom standing under umbrella

Beautiful braids, hay bales, a flying unicorn (yes a unicorn!) and a HUGE party with 200 guests; what is not to love about today’s uber-cool real wedding?

We love that Sharon and Teun describe their wedding as “bohemian; kind of a cosy mess, like a small festival”, the perfect wedding for such a beautiful couple.

We have to thank photographer Eliška of Khiria Photography for these amazing wedding pictures that we are sharing with you today.

“The wedding idea was to have one big party with our 200 guests. The ceremony was in an old amphitheatre, and we sat in a small rocking bench with flowers everywhere. The ceremony was intimate and very personal, and we prepared some words for some of our loved ones.

“The reception was more like drinks with music that fluently went to dinner. We don’t like the word reception that much. It was very loose, relaxed, bohemian; kind of a cosy mess , like a small festival.

“We prepared wooden spoons with our initials on and tied our favourite recipe (homemade Buma BBQ sauce) and a red pepper to them to give to our guests. Our friends made wooden signs for all over.

“Our wedding was full of fun, good food and lots of music and dance. Our friends prepared s many surprises for us, including a funny movie about how we met and a lot of speeches about our past and memories. The whole day was unforgettable.”

Interview with: Jodie Brennan

Company Name: Jodie Brennan Photography

Website: www.jodiebrennan.co.uk

Location / Coverage: Staffordshire and the Midlands, but will travel throughout the UK

How did the business get started and who works at Jodie Brennan Photography?

The business, which began in 2010, is run by myself, Jodie Brennan. I also have a group of ‘second shooters’ who I call upon, on a freelance basis, to assist me during weekend wedding shoots. I attend all pre-wedding meetings to discuss photography directly with my clients so they can meet me face to face prior to the big day. Jodie Brennan Photography grew slowly and organically to begin with; each year is getting busier and I have more and more client referrals, which is great.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

When I was very little I wanted to be an archaeologist, but enjoyed Art and Design so much at high school I went to University to do a Design and Art Direction degree (graphics). It was here I started to specialise in photography (and really fell in love with it). I started out by constantly photographing my favourite models – my very patient younger brother and sister.

Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?

I started out using my Dad’s old Pentax 35mm camera and printing my own images. Then I was very lucky to be one of the first of my friends to get a digital camera; it was 2 megapixel and very cutting edge at the time! I can’t remember what my very first image was of, but I used to photograph my pet cat ‘Kitten Kat’ and my family… a lot.

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

I am based in Staffordshire and the Midlands but I am happy to travel throughout the UK.
