Holly and Michael’s wedding was my first at the new Southampton Harbour Hotel in Ocean Village. This venue is so unique and absolutely stunning with windows that are almost 360° around the hotel, letting in endless amounts of light and providing a beautiful backdrop of the marina. Their ceremony was at the lovely Dibden All Saints Church which is also lined with windows all down one side, so I was very much treated to some beautiful lighting today! I was also treated to a boa
On the 8th August 2018 Ellie married her soulmate Simon in the most intimate wedding ceremony I have captured to date.
They made their vows in the brilliant late afternoon sunshine, where 14 people gathered around the pond at The Mill at Gordleton's beautifully unique outdoor ceremony area. The ceremony began at 5pm and the whole wedding party had a very relaxing start to the day with a leisurely breakfast followed by lunch. I joined the girls as they began to get ready fo
I had so much fun at the wedding of Ben & Chloe, not only are they super lovely people but you can really see the love between them which makes me feel so privileged to be part of their special day. The night before the wedding, after about 7 solid weeks of scorching sunshine we were hit by one of the biggest thunder and rain storms I have seen for a very long time. As fun as shooting in the rain can be it's obviously not the dream choice of weather for your wedding day, so n
Sam & Sophie's wedding day in November was a perfect combination of a rustic autumnal barn and cosy winter fire pit area complete with blankets and pillows. This was my first time at the Southend Barns in Chichester and I have to say.... wow! This has gone straight to the top of my ideal wedding venues and if you are stuck on where to have your big day this is definitely one to have a look at. (They even have resident Alpacas...!) As soon as I arrived I could hear the sound o
My final wedding of 2017 and what a perfect way to end a wonderful year! In the morning I battled my way through hail, wind, pouring rain and snow to be met by beautiful skies in Basingstoke. I was ready for the weather with a boot full of umbrellas, coats and some chocolate buttons to persuade the bride & grooms young daughter! (I had been told in their consultation that she's not a fan of photos but loves chocolate buttons) Once the worst had past the weather was so good to
I have had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at The Old Vicarage before, so when Emma & Stuart asked me to capture their day there I couldn't wait. During our meeting Emma told me about some of the decorations and plans for the wedding, seeing it all come together on the day was beautiful. On the bright September morning, I went to the brides parents house to capture her getting ready with her bridesmaids and made the most of their cute summer house in the garden for ph
The styling of this wedding had my heart! All done by the Bride & Groom themselves it was everything a vintage, countryside wedding could need. I started out the day with the bridal party in a lovely riverside cabin where the bubbles were flowing and the nerves were building as the 11am ceremony approached. This location was perfect for getting ready for the big day, bright and airy with a beautiful view over the river. The surrounding trees and terraces meant plenty of beaut
