Mr & Mrs Jones- Glewstone Court Country House, Ross-on-Wye

Glewstone Court Country House, Ross-On-Wye Ashley and Jess had the most gorgeous wedding at Glewstone Court in Ross-on-Wye at the end of May. They met on a night out in Cardiff and 3 dogs later, they’re inseparable! They chose Glewstone Court for it’s aesthetic appeal, the country house is beautiful and overlooks a vineyard too! As they were having a smaller wedding, the house was the perfect size for them, not to mention the owners are just lovely! Jess had her make-up done by Zoe Trigwell in the morning of her wedding in Glewstone Court’s bridal suite. Her dress was from Bridal Lane and she even admitted choosing her dress was her favourite part of wedding planning! it was truly beautiful, and with a cathedral length veil to go with it too. Ashley and Jess married in downstairs in a beautiful room in the hotel which overlooked the grounds. It was a small ceremony with just their closest family and friends watching on. Even with forecaste of thunderstorms, the rain held off for us for the day allowing for photos outside during the drinks reception. The newlyweds and I headed down to the vineyard for some time away from their guests and came back to their guests with their adorable dogs! Anyone who knows me knows I love dogs, so dogs plus weddings means a super happy photographer! Jess’ dad, Ashley and the best man introduced their wedding breakfast with some heartwarming and hilarious speeches. It was so lovely to capture your amazing Glewstone Court wedding, thank you so much for sharing your day with me! Advice from the...

Mr & Mrs Stevenson- Camden and Leadenhall Market, Central London

Central London Wedding John and Mélanie had a central London wedding at the end of May and it was so perfect! They met a few years ago at the Adventure Bar and their adventure together began. Mélanie is originally from France and was living in London for work. John is originally from Liverpool but also works in London so they have the affectionate nicknames of Froggie and Rosbif! They held their ceremony in Camden Town Hall with Mélanie’s friends and family coming from France to celebrate with them. I met them at the Town hall to capture her dads reaction before he walked her down the aisle. The ceremony was lovely, with personal vows, a few tears, some heartfelt readings and some very proud parents. “The entrance song for the ceremony will be “all you need is love” by The Beatles because John’s family is originally from Liverpool (like the Beatles). The start of this song is actually the French anthem! The first time John took me to Liverpool we went to see a cover band of the Beatles. At the end of the show he had this song dedicated to me on stage which was the cutest ever. It’s been one of our couple songs ever since!” The guests hopped on a vintage Routemaster bus to get us to Leadenhall Market where the celebrations carried on. But we got to stop along the way at the same Adventure Bar they met at for some photographs! Their reception was at Lamb Tavern, a quirky pub in Leadenhall Market. The theme of their wedding was a fusion of England and...

Mr & Mrs Reynolds- Cain Manor, Surrey

Cain Manor Wedding I was so excited to finally get to capture Charlotte and Paul’s Cain Manor wedding. I’d met up with Charlotte and Paul so many times before their wedding for family sessions, their engagement sessions and venue meetings too. By the day of the wedding it was just like seeing old friends! Cain Manor is nestled within thick forest on the Hampshire/Surrey border. It’s romantic, charming and a typical English countryside manor house belonging to the Bijou Wedding Venue family. They chose this venue because“It’s beautiful! And we both got ‘the feeling’ when we went to see it!” Despite having beautiful weather for their engagement session, the wedding day was a drizzly one but it didn’t affect anyones spirits. The girls were being pampered in the bridal suite with hair by Stephanie Louise Root and Victoria Oke Make-up. Meanwhile the boys put the finishing touches to the venue and got ready themselves. It was an emotional ceremony in Cain Manor’s barn style ceremony room. Charlotte’s proud father walked her down the aisle to a beaming Paul. Whilst a string quartet played  ‘A tale as old as time’ from Beauty and the Beast- Charlotte’s favourite film. They exited their wedding to all the guests blowing bubbles which was amazing! Even with the drizzle, these two braved the weather and came outside (with umbrellas of course!) for their couple photographs. I’m so glad they did! We made some magic in the rain together! They got back just time to be entered into their beautiful wedding breakfast room. “Our table names were quotes from our favourite films. We love films! There are...

Mr & Mrs Crack- The Old Hall, Ely

The Old Hall at Ely in Cambridgeshire is a renovated Jacobean manor house with breathtaking views over the rolling hills towards Ely cathedral. With 3000 acres and a gorgeous lake this is a wedding photographers dream! Simon and Nett’s love story started way back when they were much younger as they met at school, but they got together properly on valentines day in 2016. They got engaged in a floating tent on a lake in Thailand- can you get any more romantic!? They originally got in touch with me for a last minute July wedding but a few weeks later they got some exciting news- they were expecting! So they rushed to bring the wedding forward to mid-May so Nett could keep her beautiful dress. The wedding day was incredible and you would never know it was planned in just over a month! The Old Hall at Ely has a gorgeous garden pavilion for outside wedding ceremonies and this is where these guys tied the knot. Unfortunately Nett’s dad passed away not so long ago in 2016 so Angus, his best friend, walked Nett down the aisle. It was a beautiful and emotional moment to capture. After the ceremony, they had hired a vintage ice cream van (Sweet Ally Scoops) to keep the guests cool in the May sun. The speeches after they’d eaten were fantastic to witness. Simon announced to everyone the reason they brought the wedding forward with the ultrasound photo of their baby! The evening brought a gorgeous first dance, crazy dance moves from the guests and sparklers too! Thank you so much for choosing me to...

Berwick Lodge Galaxy Theme Wedding in Bristol- Mr & Mrs Parrish

Berwick Lodge Galaxy Theme Wedding Laura and Graeme chose to marry at the beautiful Berwick Lodge in Bristol. After shooting Amy-Jo and Sean’s wedding there last year, I was overjoyed to be back. It’s such a gorgeous venue with breath taking grounds and every inch of the decor has been thought out. “We felt it was both a special place, but also somewhere we felt at home. We liked the fact that it was in the city, but looked like it belonged in the country. Also they served us tea and the tea was in a big cup…both of these are major pluses!” They chose a theme for their wedding based around the galaxy and the stars. This worked so well with star headpieces by Hermione Harbutt and a galaxy themed cake complete with a rocket! Laura walked down the aisle with her brother at her side. She walked towards a very happy Graeme whilst When You Wish Upon a Star by Louis Armstrong was playing. Laura had the two most adorable flower girl and page boy to walk down the aisle before her too. Laura and Graeme kept their wedding low key, with just close friends and family attending the day. They had friends involved in supplying things for their Berwick Lodge wedding too. An old school friend did all the gorgeous flowers and an old work friend made their amazing cake! The speeches by Laura’s brother, Graeme, the best man and also Laura herself went down wonderfully. I’ve never seen a room full of people laugh so hard! They danced their first dance to Fly me to...

The Maspero Family- Exbury Gardens, Hampshire

Exbury Gardens Family Session I had such a fun Saturday capturing these guys just being themselves at Exbury Gardens in Hampshire! I first met this little family back one sunny bank holiday weekend last August. Hayley was a bridesmaid for her sister, Carly, and I was photographing Carly’s wedding in Winchester! Hayley got in touch a few months later to arrange a family session with her husband and their two boys. I was so happy she did! We met at Exbury Gardens in Hampshire for their family session. The gardens are 200 acres of gorgeous grounds filled with the most beautiful flowers and plants. We chose a great time to go as May made the gardens so colourful. We played some games, collected pine cones, had tickle fights and even did a bit of pond dipping! I’m so glad I was the one to capture this lovely...
