Yesterday it gave me great pleasure to capture Alex and Peter’s wedding at Silchester House near Reading. This lovely house is hidden away in the countryside and was home to the their wedding for the day! A super friendly bunch of friends and family (some of which had travelled overseas from France) complimented Alex and Peter’s super bubbly and friendly personalities! There was so much laughter from the photos we took to the speeches and beyond! The staff were lovely and despite it being over cast all day we didn’t receive a drop of rain! I thoroughly enjoyed Alex and Peter’s special day and would like to thank them for having me along, to the staff of Silchester House for looking after me, my assistant Isla for helping out and to the warm, welcoming and funny guests! I had many a laughs quoting Ace Venture and Austin Powers Lines with them!
Please raise a glass for the new Mr & Mrs Horn!

On the 17th of this month I drive out west to The Manor House in Castle Combe. I was blown away as I entered the gates as this absolutely amazing venue! The grounds had clearly been manicured to perfection. The build was gorgeous with the foliage growing up the side of it. As soon as you enter the reception area the smell of wood and the authentic creaky floor boards added so much character to the place. I can totally see why Jennifer and Ash chose this venue, I myself wouldn’t mind getting married there some day. The weather was perfect all day! Not too much sun but no rain either! Jennifer and Ash added their own spin on the wedding with their love of Lego theming much of the decor on the colourful bricks. A welcome sign made entirely out of lego, the cake themed on lego with a actual wedding scene made of lego bricks. I of course helped along with this theme by creating lego themed ‘Pixelstick’ image which will be revealed at a later date. Till then please enjoy this gorgeous photo of our couple amongst the stunning ground that The Manor House Castle Combe had to offer!
I’d like to wish Jennifer and Ash all the best in their new life together as newly weds!

Last week I was given the pleasure to witness the marriage of Jane and Elena at Middle Aston House in Oxfordshire! The beautiful countryside grounds of this venue were home to this gorgeous house and is where Jane and Elena tied the knot along with a select few family members and friends. After a lovely ceremony there was time for some drinks and socialising amongst the two families before they enjoyed a delicious meal provided by the Middle Aston House. After that we had the cutting of the cake and the two families went on to having a lovely BBQ. The weather held out and although was cloudy it didn’t stop us going for a short walk amongst the grounds! Please enjoy this little sample from their very special day!

On Saturday the 11th of August I found myself at one of the most emotional weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. Stephanie and Kyle tied the knot at the Macdonald Berystede Hotel in Ascot in what turned out to be a stunningly beautiful wedding. There was a little bit of drizzle but nothing that dampened the spirits of the guests or Steph and Kyle. Starting the bridal prep at ‘The Salon Sunningdale’ we moved back to the Macdonald Berystede to finish up getting ready. As we got closer to the ceremony start time nerves started to show. We managed to capture a magical moment before the ceremony with Stephanie and Kyle on either side of a door, not able to see each other but able to exchange a gift around it. Later we awaited Steph’s arrival and Kyle really became anxious, especially moments before Stephanie’s arrival. You could see and feel how much these two people meant to each other. With the tears rolling down Kyle’s face before Stephanie had even entered the room, it really hit me with emotion. But as soon as Kyle saw his gorgeous bride that face turned to a beaming smile! We all had a great day with plenty of amazing photo’s throughout. I especially enjoyed the ice cream bicycle!

I’d like to thank Stephanie and Kyle for having me be part of their amazing day!

Please enjoy some of those moments that were captured on the day and displayed on the day below! More to come soon!

 

So yesterday was blessed to attend the marriage of Nikola and Michael at Lillibrooke Manor near Maidenhead. This gorgeous venue hosted the complete wedding from bridal prep to carriages. We were very lucky with the weather as well as the super hot heat wave the UK has been suffering had just come to an end. The wind however had picked up blowing a gale at times but this did not hamper us at all, in fact we worked it to our advantage with some awesome vail photos!
Nikola and Michael had clearly put a lot of effort into the venue decorations as they completely transformed the place with beautiful fairy lights and a wonderful coronation of colour scheming! The ceremony was lovely with a live harpist and making it just in time, Jasmine, a young girl who sung such a beautiful song that she reduced some people including the bride to tears.

There was a number of children and babies at this wedding, all of which were adorable! The rest of the guests were all very welcoming and helpful. On this particular wedding I had an apprentice by the name Isla, I’d like to thank Isla for her amazing help in organising photos and helping move gear and hold lighting rigs. I’d also like to thank the venue ‘Lillibrooke Manor’ and ‘Vincent’ for their help in accommodating requests.

So please congratulate the new Mr & Mrs Jones!
