Welcome to The Wedding Vibe

The place for all things weddings. We won’t gloss over the facts or agree with your mum – this is your wedding, your way.

Whether you’re getting married in a tipi, having a humanist ceremony in a soggy field, a romantic wedding in castle in France or having a city centre registry office thing with a knees up in a pub, we can help you along the way.

Between us, we have 25 years in the wedding industry and we know a few things about getting married – from what happens on the morning of your wedding, to which band to book for an amazing party… and we want to share all our stuff with you! And guess what… it’s free! And we all love free stuff right?

We’ll be sharing our favourite suppliers, featuring some of our favourite venues, and giving you tons of tips and tricks on what to do, when to do it and how to stay sane in this crazy wedding game.

When she’s not fronting the Vibe with Vicks, Shelly can usually be found behind the lens. She’s been a wedding photographer & filmmaker for longer than she cares to remember and travels the world shooting beautiful weddings all year round. Everything from grand luxury castles to tipis in a farmers field, Shelly is at home in all of them. She’s a Glastonbury lover and snowboarding maniac. She dreams of the day a client will ask her to shoot a wedding on a mountain in foot deep powder. She’s also a bit of a coffee snob and likes real ale. She owns a fluffy but stupid dog called Spike, and a not so small person she named after her favourite film director who spends all her time on YouTube. Together they live in a 500-year-old former Post Office and home of Paddington Bear in the middle of nowhere with no wifi but a really good coffee machine.


Vicks is the face of the Vibe – and thank goodness cos the other two have faces made for radio. She’s the marginally more sensible one. She’s an incredibly talented make-up artist and works with brides (and yes, sometimes grooms!), bridesmaids and mums on a wedding day. She also provides one to one make up lessons and, just to keep her on her toes, she dabbles in a bit of TV and film make up work too. She’s a bit of a globetrotter and regularly accepts commissions in France, Spain and Italy (she claims this is work… I beg to differ) and loves a selfie. When she’s not on a plane heading to somewhere chic, she’s often dreaming of snowboarding in the Alps and wearing sequins at Glastonbury. She dotes on her little niece and nephew and always has an emergency Battenburg in her cupboard, just in case… well, ya never know do you eh?


You don’t get to see Ian on camera much… he’s the guy behind the lens at the Wedding Vibe. But he’s also an experienced wedding photographer and videographer who travels up and down the country to shoot awesome weddings. Occasionally, he begrudgingly shoots alongside Shelly in exchange for tea and biscuits. He’s affectionately known amongst the girls as “The Tea Boy” – mostly because he loves a builders brew. No fancy tea though… just a proper northern brew. He’s also a technical whiz and you can find him doing mind blowing technical wizardry on his Meet the Geek site. When he’s not shooting stuff and taking over the internet, he is trying to hide from his wife Nicola and his three boys – The Eldest, The middle One and The Youngest One. He used to be a DJ and fondly recalls once having hair.
