Wedding Photography

Wedding days are completely magical, and I adore capturing them for my brides & grooms.

 

After all of the months (or years) of dreaming, saving and planning you want your day to be completely perfect, and recorded in a way that you will cherish forever.

 

I am really relaxed with my approach to a wedding day, and I aim to run the day to each individual couples needs.

 

Here are some of the amazing days that I have had the honour of photographing. 

 

 

Nicola & Carl - April 2017

Milling Barn, Hertfordshire

 

Ooooh how I fell in love with these two lovely people :-)

 

Such a down to earth and fun couple, that I definitely could have stayed to party the night away with them!

 

Nicola & Carl have been together 10 and a half years and were set up by their boss at Chicago's nightclub where they worked.

 

These two are so relaxed in one another's company and just seem to 'fit'. This day was full of such elegance and cuteness, it was one of my favourite weddings that I have ever been apart of.

 

Thank you Nicola & Carl for a beautiful, fun day....it was a complete pleasure to photograph you guys xxx

 

Venue: Milling Barn

Libby & Danny - April 2017

Bassmead Manor Barns, Cambridgeshire

 

A gorgeous affair, with soft pastels, delicate lace and beautiful people. Oh how I love a wedding :-)

 

Libby and Danny have been together for 8 years and recently said their 'I do's' at the rustic and pretty Bassmead Manor Barns.

 

The morning prep session was full of giggles and a very relaxed bridal party. Once the buttons were finally done up on her elegant Justin Alexander gown, Libby was ready to meet her man at the end of the aisle.

 

There were some deep breaths from Danny and an emotional look as he saw Libby walk down the aisle, but once she reached him, his smile returned and they finally got married ? A colourful confetti walk out and summer drinks served, it was time for everyone to relax and start having fun!

 

Congratulations again, have amazing lives together xxx

Tracie & Mitchell - April 2017

Woburn Hotel & Sculpture Gallery, Bedfordshire

 

A gorgeous day at The Sculpture Gallery, Woburn Abbey celebrating these two love birds with their friends and family.

 

Tracie and Mitchell have been together over a decade and finally tied the knot at this stunning venue in April. Tracie is one of the bubbliest, funny brides I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and there was never a dull moment on the day.

 

Her laugh is completely contagious and it's clear to see the love that Mitchell has for her. With the confetti canons, beautiful gardens and a laid back couple, the day was a dream to photograph.

 

Thank you both and your bridal party for making the day so special. Have an amazing honeymoon!

 

So much love for your future xxx

Andrea & Alex - December 2016

Woburn Hotel & Sculpture Gallery, Bedfordshire

 

A beautiful sunny winter's day capturing these two tie the knot.

 

After 8 years together and two gorgeous children (with one more on the way), they said their 'i do's' in an intimate ceremony at The Woburn Hotel.

 

Andrea was glowing in her fitted lace gown and looked every bit the bride. Hair done by the fabulous Lorraine Newark and make up by the super talented Sarah Evans Makeup.

 

I loved being back in Woburn and capturing some portraits at the The Sculpture Gallery, Woburn Abbey in the setting winter sun.

 

Thanks you two for a beautiful day xxx

 

 

 

Hazel & Paul - November 2016

Bassmead Manor Barns, Cambridgeshire

 

"The best things in life are not things, they are moments"

 

Hazel & Paul met when Hazel joined Paul's company and they have worked and been together pretty much ever since.

 

The cold but sunny wedding day at Bassmead Manor Barns was beautiful and bright and so full of love.

 

This pair are so smitten with each other, and it made myself and Tom's job very easy.

 

Hazel looked so elegant in her lace gown and even managed to keep some of the cold out with a cute fur bolero. Paul scrubbed up pretty well too in his smart grey tails, set off perfectly with the fuchsia pink cravat and button hole.

 

Under the old beams and pretty fairy lights of the Rickety Barn they said their 'I do's' with smiles (and just a few tears).

 

The low setting sun meant we got to capture some beautiful early evening portraits and oh how pretty it all was.

 

Congratulations to you both again and have an amazing honeymoon in New York xxx

 

Rachel & Paul - October 2016

Eversholt Hall, Bedfordshire

 

A gorgeous Autumn day surrounded by beautiful blooms, cute flower girls & page boys and a totally laid back bride & groom.

 

Rachel and Paul tied the knot after 5 years together in front of their friends and family and I thoroughly enjoyed capturing their special day.

 

The beautiful flowers created by the bride herself at The Ginger Shed.

 

The Woburn Hotel was the perfect morning venue for the girly bridal prep with its soft shades and big windows, I could have photographed there all day capturing the details.

 

Eversholt Hall in its cute village location with beams and fairy lights, was the sweetest venue for this pair. Thanks Tom for shooting as always with me.

 

Congratulations to you both and thank you for having us at your big day xxx

 

 

 

Hannah & Brad - October 2016

Letchworth Hall Hotel, Hertfordshire

 

Eek where do I begin?!

 

Hannah & Brad met when they were just 13 at their local school. They remained friends over the years and when they were 18, Brad couldnt wait any longer and asked Hannah out, as he knew she was something special.

 

Brad finally asked Hannah to marry him after an eventful trip to New York at the top of The Empire State Building and of course she said yes!

 

After nearly 8 years together they tied the knot in front of their friends and family in a a super sweet and emotional ceremony.

 

These two are so in love and completely right for one another.

 

I had so much fun photohgraphing them and didnt they look just gorgeous?!

 

Congratulations you lovely pair xxx

 

 

 

Sam & Paul - October 2016

Bassmead Manor Barns, Cambridgeshire

 

What a wedding!

 

I met Sam and Paul over a year ago and fell in love with them both.

 

So laid back and mad about each other, that I knew their wedding day was going to be fab! 

 

A chilly Thursday with sunshine and showers and the scene was set at the beautiful Bassmead Manor Barns, With its rustic yet modern charm, it was the perfect venue for these two love birds.

 

With soft shades of pink and the rich navy bridesmaids dresses, it was a dream to photograph.

 

The Rickety Barn was the prettiest ceremony room and oh how I love its stable door.

 

It’s that time of year when couples are all about the sparklers, and I loved capturing this moment for Sam & Paul.

 

Thank you both for a chilled out day and have an amazing honeymoon! xxx

 

 

 

Gemma & John - September 2016

Horwood House, Buckinghamshire

 

Get ready to fall in love with this stunning wedding day ?

 

Gemma & John met over 15 years ago when they were introduced by a mutual friend at a Craig David Concert.

 

They obviously had a big effect on one another, and the day after they both plagued their friend for details about the other. It wasn't long before they were officially an item.

 

Gemma & John are so in sync with each other that it was amazing to witness, and made my job just a breeze.

 

The vibrant bouquets thanks to Sweet Rose Florists in pink and orange matched perfectly to the brides quirky pink heels (and later her pink Converse).

 

The Nightmare Before Christmas theme ran throughout the day, from the gothic candles in the ceremony to the beautiful cake by Sweetness & Delight Wedding Cakes I loved the 'Simply meant to be' quote from the film that also appeared everywhere including on the little vodka shots at the table.

 

The evening was finished with a beautiful first dance and then a sparkler send off.

 

Have an amazing honeymoon in Sri Lanka and biggest amounts of love to you both xxx

 

 

 

Michelle & Kevin - September 2016

Letchworth Hall Hotel, Hertfordshire

 

Despite the rain, what a beautiful day!

 

The girls were full of fun in the morning and there were plenty of giggles, glasses of champers and chocolate covered strawberries.

 

The lovely Laura had the fun task of capturing the boys getting ready, and luckily she survived! ;-)

 

A pretty church ceremony followed by a gorgeous reception at Letchworth Hall Hotel.

 

Thanks to Laura for capturing the evening reception for me, a gorgeous job as always.

 

Congratulations Michelle & Kevin it was a lush day and loved captruing it for you. xxx

 

 

 

Joanne & Adam - August 2016

The Forest Centre Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire

 

A pretty and intimate day in the sunny Bedfordshire countryside.

 

The lace dress, the soft rustic bouquet and a super pretty couple. What more could you want?

 

Jo & Adam were so cute together, and myself and Nicki had a lot of fun posing them and spending the day with them.

 

Jo's Scottish heritage was a big feature in the wedding, from the men in kilts to the thistles in the bouquet.

 

These guys certainly knew how to party and Jo's grandad even managed to get us on the dance floor!

 

We finished the evening off with karaoke from the bride and best friends which was the perfect way to finish our day. I'm sure the party carried on until the wee hours of then morning!

 

Congratulations to you both xxx

 

 

 

Stephanie & Ryan - August 2016

Grendon Lakes, Northamptonshire

 

A stunning lakeside wedding that made me swoon!

 

The light was so pretty and I loved this chilled out bride & groom.

 

Stephanie & Ryan met when they were at school, and then when Steph went away to university they drifted apart.

 

When Steph came home one Christmas and had a few too many drinks, she called Ryan and their love story started all over again.

 

After having two beautiful little girls, they decided to tie the knot in a laid back affair surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

 

Grendon Lakes provided the perfect venue for this outdoorsy couple.

 

The lake, the tee-pees, and a friend singing in the background created a stunning day.

 

Congratulations to you both and enjoy Mexico! xxx

Selina & Chris - August 2016

The Barns Hotel, Bedfordshire

 

Now every wedding that I get to be a part of is super special to me, so to capture the day of this lovely lady that I used to work with was just the icing on the cake.

 

Another super sunny August day and it was just beautiful. The pretty pastels and sparkly bling added a little something extra and I loved being able to capture it all through my camera.

 

Thank you all for being so amazing on the day and letting me and Nicki have a lot of fun whilst photographing you.

 

So much love for the future ? ? ?

 

 

 

Charlotte & Steve - August 2016

Bedford School, Bedfordshire

 

Wow what a wedding!

 

Myself and Nicki had the absolute honour of capturing this special day and we couldn't have loved it anymore.

 

From the beautiful down to earth bride, to her crazy bridal party, this wedding was just fab.

 

Charlotte and Steve first met when she was in upper school, and her and her friends use to refer to Steve as 'the one with the car'. He use to chauffeur them about and they all became good friends.

 

A few years later Steve sent Charlotte a message on social media and they started dating :-)

 

On a Thursday in August we got to capture their day and it was awesome!

 

From the minute we walked in to bridal prep we knew we were in for a fun filled day.

 

They tied the knot at the Chapel at Bedford School where Steve use to go, and they even managed to get his old Chaplin to conduct the ceremony.

 

With so much laughter, and surrounded by the people they love the most, this day couldn't have been anymore suited to this couple.

 

Congratulations to you both and hope you have a fab honeymoon in Paris xxx

 

 

 

Louise & Lance - July 2016

Offley Place, Hertfordshire

 

Wow! What a day!

 

I knew after meeting Louise and Lance, photographing their engagement shoot and just being in contact over the last year that I was going to love their wedding day, but they blew me away!

 

The couple are both teachers and work together. The connection beytween these two is obvious from the moment you lay eyes on them.

 

They are quite simply best friends.

 

The day was filled with soooooo much laughter and a ridiculous amount of love that it was impossible not to get swept along with these two.

 

The beautiful sunflowers that were everywhere throughout the day, were a link to Louise's grandad who is no longer with us, and the navy blue was for Lance's football team.

 

So much detail and thought had gone into this day. It was beautiful, and so personal to the couple.

 

If anyone is wondering about the dinosaur holding the wedding rings.....well thats just a little personal joke between myself, Tom and the happy couple ;-)

 

Thank you so much to both of you for being completeley fabulous and just going along with our ideas and poses.

 

Myself and Tom thoroughly enjoyed the day! 

 

 

 

Hayley & Phil - July 2016

Chicheley Hall, Bedfordshire

 

A beautiful bride and handsome groom tying the knot in a beautiful Bedfordshire venue - what more could you want?

 

After a Christmas proposal where Phil hid the engagement ring in the Christmas tree, this bride was not going to hang around!

 

7 months later and Hayley had pulled together a stunning day with amazing attention to detail.

 

The soft lemon bridesmaids dresses and pretty bouquets were just the beginning of this turly beautiful day.

 

Hayley and Phill giggled their way through most of the day and were such fun to photograph.

 

Thank you and your bridal party for making the day a pleaseure to capture.

 

I hope you have a lovely honeymoon in Scotland ? ? ?

 

 

 

Georgina & Ryan - July 2016

Flaxbourne Gardens, Bedfordshire

 

Georgina and Ryan first met over the counter of the local bank where Georgina worked.

 

Ryan joked that Georgina then stalked him and sent a friend request on Facebook!

 

They got together three years ago and on Saturday I was lucky enough alongside Tom to capture their special day.

 

Georgina looked stunning in her mermaid gown and sparkly bespoke head band. Her veil was the perfect finishing tough.

 

With a soft pastel theme, the day was completely elegant and ridiculously pretty.

 

This pair giggle their way through most situations and their special day was no exception.

 

Congratulations again to you both and have an amazing honeymoon in California!!!

 

 

 

 

Carly & Kelly - July 2016

Chicheley Hall, Bedfordshire

 

Four years ago this lovely pair met online and on Saturday I was swept along in their love story, and got to capture their perfect wedding day!

 

The girls both went for lace gowns with a little bling (great minds and all that), and they looked completey stunning.

 

There were quite a few tears as the brides walked down the aisle, and their Dad's could not have looked any prouder.

 

Between the showers we had beautiful sunshine and they completely rocked their bride & bride photo session.

 

I can't quite explain how strong the connection between these two is, but it was simply amazing to be able to be there and witness their love.

 

Thank you to Laura as always for shooting along side me...beautiful shots as always :-)

 

 

 

Emily & Mark - June 2016

Ampthill Registry Office & The Cross Keys Pulloxhill, Bedfordshire

 

Yesterday I fell. I fell hard. I fell in love with every inch of this couple and their beautiful wedding.

From everything from Emily stepping out of the car glowing, to how she nervously forgot her lines in the ceremony, the way Mark held her face when they kissed and just the love that was so obvious between the two of them.

After 16 years together and two gorgeous children, they said I do and were welcomed by friends and family with a round of applause.

The light, the soft pastels, the elegance...everything was just so pretty and I loved it!

Congratulations again to you both xxx

Jo & Michael - May 2016

Ye Olde Plough House, Essex

 

Jo and Michael met when they were at school, and after a few shy encounters and using some old school MSN to communicate as teenagers they started dating. That was 11 years ago!

2 years ago in Mexico, Michael swept Jo off her feet and proposed. Of course she said yes 

On Saturday myself and Tom travelled down to Essex to capture their special day.

Jo was simply glowing, and just so excited to walk down the aisle holding her Dads hand. 

She looked amazing in her lace Amanda Wyatt gown completing the look with a sparkling veil and cream lace shoes.

It was a fairly cloudy day, but as soon as Jo appeared at the end of the aisle, the sun came out and it was perfect.

The rustic barn and gardens of Ye Olde Plough House were a great setting for a relaxed vibe which suited the bride & groom perfectly.

Thank you for letting us share your day with you.

So much love and happiness for your future. xxx 

Rebecca & Dale - May 2016

Hellidon Lakes, Northamptonshire

 

Many years ago (too many to count) I went to school with Rebecca. So when she asked me to be her wedding photographer I couldn't have been happier 

Last Friday I spent the day tucked away in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside capturing her magical day tying the knot with her man Dale.

After a few years together and after having two super cute children, Rebecca & Dale tied the knot at the picturesuqe Hellidon Lakes surrounded by their loved ones.

The sun was out all day and it could not have been more perfect. With golf buggy's, lilly ponds and beautiful rockeries - it was a dream to capture.

Thanks to the fab bridal party, family and guests who were great to be around, and made me laugh throughout the day.

So much love and happiness for you both xxx

- Great make up as always by Sarah Evans Makeup and thanks for lacing the dress up too!

Kayleigh & Lee - April 2016

Great Fosters, Surrey

 

On Saturday myself & Tom spent the day capturing Kayleigh and Lee’s magical Spring wedding. It was a little chilly, and we got a few showers (and some hail) but wow what a wedding!

Kayleigh and Lee met four years ago at a local pub after a charity event. Lee had had a few drinks and Kayleigh was sober, so clearly the night looked a little different from either side! However there was a mutual attraction and they managed to get each others numbers. That is where their story began…..

I spent the morning at Lee’s mums house capturing all of the girls getting ready. It was so much fun and we all had such a giggle. 

Kayleigh looked stunning in her lace gown and I just loved the sparkle detail around her waist. The bridesmaids rocked their fuchsia pink dresses!

We arrived at Great Fosters, a gorgeous venue in Surrey, and it made the perfect location for their special day. 

The bride and groom smiled pretty much all day long and it was so much fun capturing their portraits. The bridal party were all awesome and I especially loved when the groomsmen all decided to drop their trousers and show off their matching pink pants! (what treat!)

An amazing day with vibrancy, sparkle and lots and lots of love.

Congratulations to you both! Hope you have an amazing honeymoon and incredible life together xoxo

Karen & Michael - March 2016

The Barns Hotel, Bedford

 

Karen & Michael met four years ago when she was pulling pints at the local dog racing tracks.

Apparently Michael said that she wasnt leaving work until he had bought her a drink. And that is where their love story began.

Saturday was a gorgeous warm and sunny day and I loved every second of capturing their big day.

Karen looked stunning with her hair piled up high, beautiful make up by @taraconway and a vintage lace gown by @justinalexander.

Her customised Converse were the perfect shoes for this quirky bride.

There was so much laughter and quite a few tears when Karens oldest son gave a reading in the ceremony and in the speeches. Even Michael shed a tear whilst listening to his new stepson.

The intimate ceremony and reception were just perfect, and it was amazing to witness it all.

Thanks as always to the staff at The Barns Hotel for making the day flow perfectly and providing a gorgeous venue.

Congratulations to you both! And thank you for rocking your wedding day with lots of fun, love and happiness.

xoxo

Casie Bridal Prep - February 2016

Bedfordshire

 

If your wondering whether to capture bridal prep on the morning of your wedding.....yes, yes, 100 times yes.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of capturing Casie's pre-wedding photos, and wow what a dream! This girl certainly had style, and looked absolutely stunning.

From chat and laughter with bridesmaids, to the emotional moment of your dress being fastened, and letting your dad see you for the first time - this is one of the most special parts of your big day, don't let it go by unnoticed ♥

 

 

Carla & Dan - February 2016

Dodmoor House, Northamptonshire

 

A Valentine's weekend wedding, and wow it didn't disappoint. May the beauty of my first 2016 wedding continue for the rest of the year ♥

Carla & Dan met at school and were great friends all the way up until they left home for University in Kent. During their time away from home they drifted apart and it wasnt until they both returned home that Carla suggested they catch up.

It was clear from that first catch up, that they no longer felt that they were just friends, and the relationship grew into much more.

Dan popped the question in London after taking Carla on a bit of a whirlwind trip, giving her cards with messages, leading to the next clue. At this point Carla still thought it was just a pre-birthday treat! When they got back to their hotel, Dan got down on one knee and of course Carla said yes!

There were quite a few tears during the ceremony from pretty much everybody (and yes me included).

Dan opted for a 'best person' to be by his side, his lovely sister Jenny who did an awesome job! She sang in the ceremony and speeches and completely blew everyone away.

The love and friendship between Carla & Dan is so obvious to all around them, and what better to way to end a simply beautiful day than with a sparkler arch surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

A huge thank you to Carolyn at Dodmoor House Wedding Venue in Northamptonshire and her team for making the day completely flawless.

Congratulations again Carla & Dan, you are going to have the happiest life together ♥

 

 

Hannah & Paul, December 2015

Tewin Bury Farm, Hertfordshire

 

Hannah & Paul met 10 years ago when Paul joined the same company that Hannah worked for. Since then they have had a beautiful little girl and are one of the loveliest couples that I have worked with this year.

They were so happy and relaxed with one another, that they made photographing them simply beautiful.

Hannah looked stunning in her Ellis Bridals mermaid gown, and her elegant vintage heels.

Paul gave the best grooms speech that I have heard this year, and he had everyone in hysterics (he sang and rapped!). 

Thank you all for making this day a great way to finish 2015 and congratulations again ♥

 

 

Dawn & Andy - November 2015

Chicheley Hall, Bedfordshire

 

Dawn & Andy met at the beginning of the year at work, and wow has it been a whirlwind romance!

Andy proposed to Dawn whilst they were on a luxury holiday in Mexico just 9 weeks ago! And of course she said yes!

Dawn & Andy both said 'when you know, you know' and I couldnt agree more. This couple were so completely loved up and I enjoyed every moment of their day!

Dawn is such a lovely down to earth lady, and was up for pretty much anything on the day which is always amazing for any photographer! We even embraced the horrendous winds to get some stunning outdoor shots of the couple.

They also had a huge announcement to make, that they are expecting a new addition next year! And what better way to tell their friends and family than with this stunning cake by Helen at Sweetness & Delight Wedding Cakes

There was so much laughter and quite a few tears, that this is definitely up there with one of my favourite weddings of the year :-)

Congratulations Dawn & Andy - you rock my world ♥

 

 

 

Beth & Andy - November 2015

The William Cecil Hotel, Stamford

 

Beth & Andy met over 7 years ago and on Saturday in a cosy and warm ceremony they tied the know in front of their nearest and dearest.

Beth wore a sparkly Victoria Jane dress, simple drop earrings and a statement bracelet. She was glowing from the moment I turned up in the morning.

With Andy being in the RAF he wore his uniform along with all his groomsmen. They all looked very handsome (I do love a uniform!)

It was a freezing cold and rainy day, meaning that all of the photos were taken indoors at the bespoke hotel, but the bride and groom didnt let this dampen their day :-)

The sparkly fairy lights and toasty log fires made for a gorgeous setting that everybody loved.

Conratulations to you both ♥

 

 

 

Ceri & Henry - November 2015

Ashridge House, Hertfordshire

 

Ceri and Henry met at school and have been madly in love ever since. Their love is so honest and visible that it is hard not to feel completely loved up just being in their presence.

Ceri looked like a beautiful English rose in her classic fittedMaggie Sottero gown and left everybody speechless.

The stunning venue of Ashridge House was the perfect setting for their elegant wedding. When I first saw the venue I thought I had arrived at the wrong place!

The day started with a lot of rain and it was pretty blustery, but someone was looking down on us and brought blue skies and sunshine. (And we even managed a cheeky sunset).

The spectacular firework display was the perfect ending to a truly romantic day and I am still smiling from witnessing these two tie the knot.

Thank you as always to my second shooter Tom who captured some stunning images and as always keeps me going on a long day!

Congratulations Ceri & Henry may you live happily ever after ♥

 

 

Laura & Andrew - October 2015

The Barns Hotel, Bedfordshire

 

A day of sunshine, crispy leaves and warm colours, and I was in heaven!

Laura & Andrew met 7 years ago and on Saturday I got to capture their magical day.

Laura rocked her limited edition unicorn heeled Irregular Choice shoes and I struggled to stop photographing them! Her Sottero-Midgley mermaid gown fitted her beautifully and she look stunning.

Andrew looked dapper in his brown suit and bow tie - I love an alternative groom :-)

The pumpkin centrepieces and vibrant colours in the barn were just perfect for a Halloween wedding day.

So much fun and laughter on this day, I could have easily stayed for the party!

Congratulations to you all and thank you again for all being so warm and friendly - made my job a breeze :-) xxx

 

 

Kylie & Tim - October 2015

Parkside Hotel, Buckinghamshire

 

On the 5 year anniversary of when they went on their first date at a local restaurant, Kylie and Tim got married at St. Marys Church in Milton Keynes opposite their date venue.

Tim proposed to Kylie in the city of love, and rather than opting for the obvious landmarks like The Eiffel Tower or The Arc De Triomphe he got down on one knee in the hotel where they were staying, taking Kylie by surprise! :-)

They had a bright pink and orange theme which looked stunning. And the bouquets made of roses and gerberas were perfect for the occasion.

Kylie looked stunning in her Sophia Tolli gown and the lace covering was so elegant.

Although we had a rainy start, we finished the day with a rainbow and a gorgeous sunset. Perfect ending to a perfect wedding day.

All the love for the future xxx

 

 

Nicola & Ben - October 2015

The Donkey Sanctuary & The Deer Park Hotel, Devon

 

Nicola & Ben were set up on a blind date through a friend, and they met up over a game of bowling and a pizza (how old school :-)) Nearly 8 years later they tied the knot in the most unusual venue I have been to (and the coldest).

The Donkey Sanctuary in Devon melted Nicola & Ben's hearts when they visited, and they thought it would be the perfect alternative venue for their special day. Choosing this venue also meant that their gorgeous dog Katie (who I could easily of snuck home with me) was able to be a big part of their day. She even carried the wedding ring down the aisle!

After saying their 'I do's' surrounded by family, friends (and donkeys) we snuck off to a secret location, and Ben surprised Nicola with a horse and carriage ride to their reception venue. How romantic?! ♥

The Deer Park Hotel was the perfect grand, yet intimate venue and I was smitten as soon as I arrived. With the roaring fires and drinks everybody soon warmed up.

Nicola and Ben are the most down to earth and genuine couple and I know they will have a beautiful marriage ♥

 

 

Sam & Dave - Otober 2015

Eversholt Hall

 

Sam & Dave met through Sam's brother and have been in love ever since.

Sam was completely stunning in her @justinalexander lace gown and her vintage @bejaminadams was the perfect heel to finish the outfit.

The homemade bridesmaids dress's (made by Sam ♥) were beautiful, and matched perfectly with the deep red rose bouquet.

It was a perfect autumn day with sunshine and leaves on the ground. I was in love.

Surrounded by their friends and family Sam & Dave said their 'I do's' and could not have looked more in love and happy.

Congratulations to you both ♥

 

 

Katie & Ross - October 2015

Chicheley Hall, Bedfordshire

 

A gorgeous misty October morning, and I arrived at Chicheley Hall to a radiant bride getting ready for her big day.

Katie had layed out the bridesmaids dresses on the gorgeous fire place so I just got snapping away :-)

The room was so light, it made the moring prep session a complete dream.

It's fair to say that Ross took his time in proposing to Katie (11 years!) but it was worth the wait!

Katie and Ross are just one of those couples that 'click' and bounce off one another, and it was amazing to watch the two celebrate their day with their gorgeous little girl.

Congratulations to you both - it was a stunning wedding! xxx

 

 

Marieanne & Ollie - September 2015

Horwood House, Buckinghamshire

 

Marieanne & Ollie met in 2013 and a year later Ollie planted clues across the city of Milton Keynes in some of the couples favourite places, leading up to a romantic proposal at 10pm that night. (boys take note - girls love a surprise!)

On Saturday I got to capture their day at the beautiful Horwood House and luckily the sun shone for us :-)

It was a day full of lots of emotions, and it was a wonderful day to be a part of.

 

 

Janine & Paul - September 2015

Fawsley Hall, Northamptonshire

 

This wedding day was such a classy and pretty affair, and I was smitten from the start.

From the princess ballgown to the sparkling chandeliers at the reception, this wedding could not have been anymore elegant.

Janine was such a down to earth bride and I just fell in love with her and her chatty bridesmaids. The morning session flew by and after slipping in to her dress with help from her best friend and mum, it was time to get down the aisle.

Paul waited nervously alongside his best man, and his face lit up when he saw his stunning bride walking towards him in her Kurt Geiger heels.

There was lots of laughter throughout the ceremony, and Dad looked a little tearful as his daughter said her vows.

The sun came out everybody enjoyed their drinks in the beautiful surroundings of Fawsley Hall Hotel

After the formals and group shots, the guests enjoyed their three course wedding breakfast and speeches.

We finished off the evning with a fun group shot in the cinema room and the couple kicked off the evenings reception with a slow dance to A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.

Congratulations again to you both ♥

 

 

Andrea & Justin - August 2015

The Holiday Inn, Newport Pagnell, Bedfordshire

 

Andrea & Justin met through their mutual friend Kate and they haven't looked back since.

Andrea walked down the aisle in her Irregular Choice heels and was absolutely glowing. Jut got a bit was overwhelmed when he saw his bride approaching, and there were definitely a few tears shed (I love an emotional groom ♥).

The weather was definitely not on our side - as we had rain all day long, but nothing could dampen the love and happiness between these two lovebirds.

Congratulations again to you both ♥

 

 

Clare & Craig - August 2015

Dodford Manor, Northamptonshire

 

As soon as Clare slipped into her stunning lace dress and stepped into her sparkly Benjamin Adams London heels, I was blown away. It's not everyday that I get to capture the day of someone that I know, and wow was I emotional!

Clare walked down the aisle on the arm of her dad, and Craig watched in complete amazement as his beautiful bride approached.

After the 'I do's' (again in which I had to hold back the tears!) friends and family mingled in the lovely surroundings ofDodford Manor Country House Barn Wedding Venue and enjoyed the fizz and canapes.

The day drifted along beautifully and the reception and speeches were over flowing with love and laughter.

They kicked off the evening reception with a first dance to 'You & me' by Lifehouse and that's when the part began and the rest of their story started..........

Congratulations again to you both xxx

 

 

Susana & Keiron - August 2015

Browsholme Hall, Lancashire

 

A magical and mystical wedding day in gorgeous surroundings.

Susana & Kieron's take on the Labryinth theme was beautiful & stylish and they didn't let it out shine them on their special day.

They met back in 2008 when Susana's sister set them up on a blind date. They both admit that it wasnt love at first sight, but their friendship grew over time, and it was a pleasure to be there 7 years later to watch them tie the knot.

The day was accompanied with beautiful music by David Robertshaw, piano artist which truly added to the atmosphere.

Worked alongside some great people too!

Big thanks to my beautiful assistant Rachel too for embracing the day and taking some awesome photos ♥

Jodie & Gareth - July 2015

Dodford Manor, Northamptonshire

 

A truly stunning day at a beautiful northamptonshire venue.

Set amongst rolling hills, Dodford manor was the perfect setting for this wedding day.

 

Jodie, Gareth and their bridal party were so much fun - I could have photographed them all day long.

 

Check out their pastel greys with sunflowers - and swoon!

 

Congratulations to you both xxx

Nicola & Terry - July 2015

The Sharnbrook Hotel, Bedfordshire

 

Nicola & Terry first laid eyes on each other when they were just 5 years old. On Friday they tied the knot in front of their friends and family in Bedford and then laughed and danced the evening away at The Sharnbrook Hotel.

Congratulations to you both, I know you will have many happy years together completely fileld with love ♥

Zara & Ian - May 2015

Milling Barn, Hertfordshire

 

When Zara & Ian first met over 5 years ago, it was far from love at first sight for Zara. Apparently Ian was far more concerned about eating his fried chicken then anything else that night! Then after meeting again at a local pub and talking properly, the sparks began to fly between them.

Last October in Rhodes Ian popped the question over a game of Rummy, rather than along the beach front with the moon overhead. Certainly keeping Zara on her toes.

Capturing their woodland wedding was a complete dream for me, and I loved spending the day with not only the gorgeous couple but their family & friends.

Here is a little sneak peek of the special day :-)

Congratulations Zara & Ian ♥
