What a wonderful day Simon and Sarah had on their wedding day! We started the day off photographing Sarah getting ready in the honeymoon suite before I headed over to meet the groom at the town hall. This stunning building is raise up off the ground on columns and provided and gorgeous setting for the ceremony. Once the ceremony had been completed along with a confetti photo we headed over to ‘The Shepards Hut’ which is a countryside pub. The whole pub had been hired out for this private event and was a fantastic host for all including the children. Although it did rain our spirits were not dampened and eventually the showers stopped and we were able to go outside for some group photos! A local neighbour even invited us into his gardens for some photos. We finished up the night with some imaginative ‘moonlight’ photos and a special ‘STRANGER THINGS’ treat for two of the boys who I’d picked on were massive fans!
Yesterday I was very happy to have been asked to photograph Tom & Annie’s wedding at the always wonderful De Vere Horwood up in Milton Keynes. This is one of my favourite venues that I’m a supplier for as it has wonderful ground and is situated deep in the countryside surrounded by fields, trees and wildlife! Tom and Annie were such a loving, caring couple and you can see why they’ve paired so well together! We were very lucky with the weather and this allowed us to have the ceremony outside under a special gazebo that De Vere Horwood uses for just such occasions! As the guests enjoyed some refreshing cold drinks and enjoyed the warm weather we gathered for group photos before I took Tom and Annie for a walk around the grounds and many photo locations the venue has to offer.
After the speeches Tom & Annie were greeted with a surprise as the whole room began singing ‘All you need is love’. Kazoo’s along with song sheets were discreetly handed out and the whole room join in. I’ve never seen so much laughter and tears from a groom! It was true touching!
Please enjoy these two samples from this epic wedding!

Yesterday I was thrilled to be able to photograph the marriage of the cutest couple, Ruth & Ash!
Speaking to Ruth the week before she was so worried about the weather forecast but we couldn’t have asked for a better day! A slight wind caught her veil and whipped it up for the photos like we asked for it on cue!
After a wonderful service at St Mary’s church in Eversley I took Ruth and Ash for a walk in the wheat fields nearby for some gorgeous moments between the two of them!
Then (in a first for me) I gave the happy newly weds a 20min ride to the reception in Rotherwick. I even let them pick their favourite song to play in the car ride there!
Ruth’s Dad had arrange a confetti line for Ruth and Ash upon their arrival at Rotherwick and after some fun photos we had a few moments to mingle before being called in for the wedding breakfast!
The day finished up with this wonderful couple by a romantic and beautiful sunset, even the moon came out to finish the evening with this stunning closing shot!
I cannot wait to get this collection back to Ruth and Ash as they are gonna be thrilled and surprised as to how good they look as a couple on camera!
On Friday I travelled up to Stevenage to capture the marriage of Simon and Trevor. This gorgeous venue is situated in the stevenage country side and is home to a giant old school barn, house and hotel!
When I first saw these two dapper dressed men I could physically see poor Simon shaking with nerves but after the ceremony was over he was able to relax and enjoy the rest of his day. Trevor said that the ceremony was a complete blur and wasn’t without tears from both men and guests. It was so lovely to see the emotion flowing from everyone in the room. The weather stayed away from rain and the chill wind was fought off by the staff lighting heat lamps throughout the outside patio area.
Everyone enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea and after a break for guests to sit down and enjoy each others company Simon and Trevor returned to cut the cake and cement the marriage with the first dance. The first dance was so much more emotional than I thought it was going to be as it quickly turned into a passionate, deep felt hug whilst dancing so you can see that this moment they had been waiting for for a long time!
A staggering amount of evening friends and relatives turned up in the evening and filled the barn with a hips shaking playlist from the DJ! All in all a amazing day but even more amazing for them!
I’d like to thank Simon and Trevor along with the staff at ‘The farmhouse at Redcoats for looking after me so well and to once again congratulate them on tying the knot!
