This week saw me head out to Dinton Pastures in Reading to photograph the engagement shoot of Charlie & Lewis. The heavy downpour of rain that the area had been getting made for a very wet, muddy and soggy day out. However this did not stop us going ahead and the photos certainly don’t show how bad some of  the muddy areas really were! We got some gorgeous shots of the two who are due to be married in March. Charlie and Lewis had their clear love for one another and this was blessed by a beautiful swan in one of my favourite photos of the shoot!

Today I took a walk in a local woods with ‘King Khalid’ as I call him to get some nice ‘one on one’ shots.

We were joined by friend Tracey, who’s featured on Lunar’s blog before and her gorgeous dog ‘Stella’ who posed for a few shots with Khalid.
I love taking photo’s in the wood with all the natural settings and autumn produces some amazing, gorgeous warm colours.
Khalid plans to use the images to send to agencies for modelling and acting purposes so I wish him all the very best of luck!

Yesterday the wonderful couple Amy and Carl celebrated their marriage at Horwood House in Milton Keynes. The weather was perfect and the day went without flaw! The day started in one of the suites at Horwood house where Amy got ready amongst friends and family. With plenty of time before the ceremony the atmosphere was relaxed and Amy was more excited than nervous. You could really see the joy in her face when she first viewed herself in the mirror fully dressed! Meanwhile Carl was very relaxed…until things started happening. Suits were donned and it wasn’t long before Carl was stood at the front of the ceremony room looking very nervous with all his friends and family sat just meters behind. I knew that Amy was just behind the door waiting to come in and how amazing she looked, but Carl had no idea what a treat he was in for! So taken by her he jumped the gun beating the registrar to the announcement of ‘You may kiss the bride’! A number of children helped complete the day, some of which were very shy to me at first but a few ‘high fives’ later some wouldn’t even leave me alone- ha! Few notable mentions that i’ve never seen at a wedding before was the introduction of a ice cream parlour, a bouncy castle (which i think was more for that adults than the kids) along with the classic sweetie cart and hog roast! There were some epic moments of emotion throughout the day which made it all that much more special!

Please raise your glasses for the new Mr & Mrs Pargeter!

Horwood House

Another glorious wedding took place at Horwood House on Saturday with the marriage of Tom & Sarah.
Some of my favourite highlights of this wonderful wedding were the hilarious best man’s speech, Mia’s ‘cheeky’ personality (special thanks to you for helping me with the garment shots) and getting to use my new piece of technology which helped create the amazing shot shown below! The day started with a very warm welcome by all the family at Tom & Sarah’s house where we photographed the bridal prep. There were a few terrifying moments such as when we opened the flower box to find it was empty, and the car out front refusing to start! But it all came together perfectly and we were on our way to Horwood! Two gorgeous cars transported the bride, farther of the bride and the bridesmaids to the venue and from there the day only got better! We had a lot of fun photographing with Tom & Sarah, the day was just filled with laughter and giggles!

We wish you much love and happiness as you begin this new chapter in your lives together!

So without any further delay, can we all please stand for the new Mr & Mrs North

Yesterday, Horwood House saw the marriage of Sam & Bob Gibbs and what a day it turned out to be! The weather only complimented this lovely couple and their wonderful friends and family. Sam & Bob couldn’t be more friendlier and welcoming to not only myself but everyone soul at the wedding! Horwood House never looked so good with both the Ceremony rooms and Eyre suite looking so good, Sam couldn’t stop crying with joy. Their love for each other was clearly genuine and seen, from the little comments being heard said to each other, to the interaction and reactions to each others presence! Special thanks goes out to Poppy as 2nd shooter and Ellie ( one of the bridesmaids) who also got hands on with one of the camera’s and got some cracking shots!

Best wishes and much love to the new Mr & Mrs Gibbs
