Shoshana & Meredith Pre wedding shoot

Shoshana and Meredith asked for a romantic picnic photo shoot. Spring is here and are great place to capture this season was in Hyde Park where the park and gardens would be in full bloom. Shosahsna and Meredith’s outfits happened to matched the backdrop colour scheme really well.  The rest was easy and all about having fun.

This was a fun session – and a glass of champaign always goes down well to celebrate the occasion. Shoshana and Meredith are getting married at the lovely Notley Abbey in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

Sarah & Thomas pre wedding photo shoot

Barnes holds a sentimental value for Sarah and Thomas. Their request to do their pre-wedding shoot here was a great opportunity to capture them in an environment means a lot to them. The morning started with a quick coffee and recky of the location. Barns Bridge and the low tide on the Thames made the embankment look like a great spot for some funky backdrops and interesting texture.

Sarah and Thomas are getting married at the lovely Great Fosters.

Chido & David – pre wedding photo shoot

I knew this was going to be a fun photo shoot with Chido and David. The slightly cold Sunday morning didn’t deter them from enjoying the opportunity of being photographed. And they certainly gave me good insight into their bubbly personality – which is useful insight for me to know on how best to capture them on their wedding day. Chido and David are getting married in Wasing Park Hotel in 2014.
I look forward to it.

Bee & Andy – Brook Green Hotel Wedding

What a great way to start the new year in January with photographing this very intimate wedding. The bride and groom with their 18 guests of friends and family enjoyed an easy paced day starting at the Brook Green Hotel in Hammersmith. With a fireplace to set the scene and the ambiance of relaxed environment, the day slowly unfolded with a civil service in Mayfair, London.

Due to a late ceremonial start, the bride and groom were more than happy to do a post wedding photo shoot at their favourite past time venue at Kew Gardens. The weather held out (just) and a stroll through the park brought about some lovely portrait opportunities. The camera lenses got a bit steamed up inside the conservatory from time to time, but was worth it as the background setting and textures made up for it with some good settings.

Heres a preview of the day.

The Spa Hotel, Tonbridge Wells – Belinda and Dominic’s Wedding

Belinda and Dominic booked me after we met at a wedding fair at The Grand Hotel in Brighton. It was a great journey with then from having the pleasure and fun of doing their pre-wedding photo shoot at Brighton Pier a couple months before their wedding which was held at The Spa hotel, Royal Tunbridge Wells.

This was a very intimate wedding with around 50 guests and I was made to feel like one of their friends throughout the day from bridal prep right up to around mid-night when I finish photographing the party shots.

The Spa Hotel, is a lovely venue, very spacious and the light coming in from the grounds is amazing. High Rocks is only 5 min drive from The Spa Hotel where we spent half an hour doing portraits in between the reception and call to breakfast. It really worked out well there.

Hawthbush Farm Wedding – Laura & Adam

Hawthbush Farm is really a magical venue for a wedding. The whole farm was taken over for the weekend for what was a fun packed memorable wedding day and lovely wedding photographs.

Laura and Adam made an amazing choice choosing Hawthbush Farm. This beautiful, relaxed, yet rustic venue was the perfect setting for their friends and family to enjoy a festival feel to the whole day. Friends singing and chatting around bonfire.

The cottage where Laura and her bridesmaids got ready were stunning, cute and cosy. Perfect for me to potter around and take bridal prep photos of the girls – which turned out to be a morning of laughter mixed in with a touch of nerves and bubbly.

As for the grooms party over on the other side of the Hawthbush farm, well they were busy prepping the barn for the reception and call to breakfast to take place that afternoon. Not sure the hot tub got used though.

The weather held out, but most importantly the landscape setting and the shepherds huts were perfect backdrops for some amazing bride and groom portraits.

St Andrews Church in Beddingham was also a little gem venue for an intimate church ceremony. Absolutely idilic

Brighton Engagement photo shoot- Laura & Adam

Its a gorgeous summer morning in Brighton, and this is definitely one of my favourite locations to do an engagement shoot. Full of interesting, rustic, raw areas to use as backdrops and to canvas couples looking for something different in their photographs.

Laura and Adam are just lovely. Really good fun easy going people – and bringing their scale boards with them said it all about them as being out going, and free spirited couple who enjoy life to the full. Cant wait to do their wedding photos.

I just love some of these shots, and what I really love to do is fit the backdrop of an area to the personality of the couple. Its amazing how rustic steel frame work under the peer can be used to frame a beautiful romantic photograph.

I spent a lot of time on the ground getting those scate board shots. And never got run over by them. But, there were a few close shaves.

Nicola + Jason’s Wedding – Tylney Hall

Tylney Hall wedding on a December day was another great day at a grand venue. Its was an early start meeting up with the bride to be and her bridesmaids at the salon to capture those lovely ladies getting ready. December being December, this was going to be a challenge due to the short day light that a mid winter wedding allows for. However, with some careful planning we were able to arrange for certain portraits to be slotted in earlier in the day schedule. As a result, beautiful portraits were produced, and everybody is happy.

The guests were good fun too, and very, very energetic till the last moments of the party. There was no stopping them.
I think the images will give you a sneak preview of that.
