Calderwood Hall Midlands Wedding – Hayley + Mitchell

Hayley or rather Doctor Hayley is one heck of an inspiring women! Anyone who has completed a Doctorate and run the comrades gets a serious bow from me! Did I mention that she also planned her whole wedding whilst doing her Doctorate? Yes Endurance could be used as her middle name! Besides all of that, Hayley is sweet as pie, she has such a lovely gentle nature and the prettiest eyes (which she definitely gets from her Mom). I can see why Mitchell is so smitten with her!

The two of them make a wonderful, laid back, friendly couple and it truly was a pleasure photographing their big day at Calderwood Hall in the Midlands. Thanks guys for picking me!!!

And now for the credits in the brides own words
