July and August have been the busiest months yet for Amber Marie Photography and every second has been inspiring. Whilst I’ve been working on a lot more commercial briefs, the start of August had me flying out of my beloved Leeds and into Spain to finally meet my Australia-based couple Lee & Leton. From the moment I began emailing Lee to discuss their plans for the big day, I knew that both their wedding and the photography would echo their creativity as a couple. This blog post serves as a prelude to the wedding itself, a pre-wedding shoot with a twist, this series captures why Lee & Leton’s wedding was so special. Every detail of the wedding reflected parts of their families, friends and their life together. From the lovingly crafted mementos and props, to the family and friends that transformed a remote olive grove, nestled in the mountains of Velez Blanco in Spain, into a quirky and charming DIY wedding reception.
