Mr & Mrs Bray- Snowy Wedding- The Old Lodge, Minchinhampton, Cotswolds

Living in the UK, you don’t expect to have a snow on your wedding day, let alone in March! The first wedding of the year at The Old Lodge in Minchinhampton Common was one I will never forget. Katie let me know a few days before that we were expecting snow on her wedding day. Little did we know how much snow we would actually get! I travelled down the day before to be on the safe side and the snow was already thick when I arrived. It was nicknamed ‘The Beast from the East’ and it certainly lived up to it’s name in the Cotswolds! These two met at work, when Katie was freelancing at a design agency that Wes worked at. ‘I didn’t know at the time but Wes had a rule that he wouldn’t get into relationships with people from work! We went on a road trip around Scotland. Wes proposed at the fairy pools on the Isle of Skye. We’d had a great day visiting whisky distilleries and eating oysters so this topped it off perfectly.’ Katie and her Maid of Honour were already at the venue when I arrived, setting up the room in preparation for tomorrow. Thursday night was when the beast really hit The Old Lodge hard. Waking up Friday morning the entire place was covered in snow, up to 3 feet in some places! Emotions ran high as panic set in about whether guests would be able to show up to the wedding due to weather! Luckily all the bridesmaids and parents arrived safely which put Katie’s mind to rest.

Rounding up 2017!

This year truly has flown by but it’s been a total pleasure to share with all the wonderful couples who booked with us this year. Thank you to my wonderful couples who have trusted me to capture their incredible wedding days this year. 2017 has been truly special as it’s the first year I’ve thought:   ‘Yep, I can do this forever.’ This year saw Honeydew Moments take on it’s first Indian wedding (second shooting with Sheetal Varsani) and organise 2 epic styled wedding shoots with some talented suppliers too. It was also a huge achievement for us to have also been nominated for the Best of Welsh Wedding Awards for the categories ‘Best Photographer’ as well as ‘Best New Business’. It was completely unexpected but we ended up walking away with second place in Best New Business 2017! I feel honoured and privileged to have experienced each and every wedding day this year. Each wedding day has been different: we’ve had tipi’s, quaint churches, huge barns, grand manor houses and even castles! We’ve also had very windy days, rainy days and glorious sunny days too. Huge thanks to my wonderful assistants and second shooters this year: Siobhan, Leesha, Sheetal, Nisha, Lauren, Cammy and Josie too. You guys make my job so much easier, way more fun and you even listen to my crazy ramblings all day! The thrill I get from every wedding is amazing and I can’t wait to challenge and push myself further as I throw myself into 2018! Next year brings plenty more engagement sessions which I’m really excited for. It also brings my first dabble at destination... read more

Mr & Mrs Kidd- The Italian Villa, Compton Acres, Poole Dorset

The Italian Villa Lara and Tony chose the stunning Italian Villa at Compton Acres in Dorset for their winter wedding venue. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Split over three floors plus all the gardens to explore too, it was a magical setting. These two have been engaged for 19 years and 3 kids later they finally decided to tie the knot! The girls got ready at the nearby Sandbanks Hotel with a balcony overlooking the wintery Dorset coastline. The girls had their make-up done by the talented Claire Bowring and their hair done by a close friend. Lara’s eldest daughter did the hairdressers hair for the wedding too! Lara wore Kurt Geiger wedding shoes called ‘Lara’s Jewells’. These shoes were totally meant-to-be for this bride. The Italain Villa ceremony room was stunning, they chose to decorate with lots of flowers, including a gorgeous floral archway at the top of the aisle. Despite the late start to the ceremony, it was lovely and enjoyed by everyone, including the 15 bridesmaids, flower girls and page boys! Lara walked down the aisle to Songbird by Fleetwood Mac. The couple’s children got up to stand with them for the exchange of rings and the first kiss which was a lovely touch. The December air was brisk but the drinks reception was outside to take in the beautiful gardens that the Italian Villa has to offer. There was no snow at this Christmas wedding but they did have a snow machine during the confetti! The sun was starting to disappear so I stole the newlyweds for a walk around the Japanese gardens and... read more
