So yesterday I have the please of photographing the marriage of Teresea and Andy at Esseborne Manor Hotel.
The day started off a little unnerving as upon my arrival I found a emergency ambulance outside, fearing the worst for my bride I went in only to find she was all ok and that it was nothing to do with the wedding. With the wedding still on we got on with the bridal photos and I explore the beautiful venue grounds! I also discovered this venue was home to the cast of Downton Abbey for 6 years whilst they filmed the show. A signed giant photo proudly hangs in one of the rooms from all the cast members thanking them for looking after them so well. I can see why as the staff at this hotel were so lovely, tentative and had amazing food and service!

Back to the wedding, Teresea’s nerves started to show with her visibly shaking the closer we got to the ceremony. In fact I had to help her put on her necklace as it proved to much of a challenge for her. The ceremony was lovely with a super friendly registra and some playful banter between Teresea and Andy throughout.
After the ceremony I took the newly weds for a walk around the grounds away from everyone and gave them sometime to themselves. Teresea commented later that evening how much she appreciated that walk away from everyone so she could calm her nerves. I was also just nice for them to enjoy and take in all the pretty flowers and locations that this wonderful venue had to offer.
The weather was just perfect, with some clouds in the sky giving us a nice flat light for most of the day and no rain meant we were able to enjoy a BBQ in the evening! Amongst the evening BBQ was the largest sweetie stand I’ve ever seen stretching the entire length of the top table! Once the sun had set and darkness fell we headed outside to do a awesome ‘sparks’ shot which was requested by Teresea. This stunning shot with Esseborne Manor in the background is shown below so please enjoy this sneak peak of this glorious wedding!

Yesterday I travelled to one of my favourite supplier locations that is known as Ufton Court. There Katie and Jamie tied the knot in the archers hall. There was a number of surprises for the guests and myself including baby Luna arriving in a gorgeously decorated cart and a owl delivering the rings in the hall.
After the ceremony we all moved outside for drinks and outdoor games. After taking Katie and Jamie around the stunning grounds of Ufton Court it was clear that they were a perfect match for each other, further reinforced by the amusing shoe game that they played that evening! The weather held out for the most part with only a very light bit of rain that did not dampen the friends and family’s spirits! Baby Luna was just gorgeous and so well behaved all day and we all got many smiles out of her which was lovely to see! What great day and what a wedding. I’d like to thank the staff at Ufton Court as always for putting on a great wedding and for looking after me so well!

Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Budgett.

This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Kirsty and Jon’s wedding at the Royal Berkshire Hotel in Ascot! The day started out at a gorgeous home where all of the bridesmaid’s were hands on and very welcoming to me. I got stuck in to mingling in amongst them and would like to thank them for all the lovely tea and to Hannah for her kind words of “I feel like I know you already” after only an hour of us meeting! With everyone busy getting ready a gift from the Groom arrived to the house which brought tears to Kirsty’s eyes! It was such a touching moment and you can really see how much they love each other! Jon’s gifts were so thoughtful!

After a short ride to a wonderful church we were blessed with a beautiful service with a upbeat and enlightening Vicar! The service was also no exception to the emotional moments as Kirsty had to hold it together during her vows, but she did! We were eventually sent on our way by the Vicar who encouraged us to party and celebrate this marriage of love!

The Royal Berkshire Hotel did an outstanding job of hosting. The staff were all lovely, welcoming and no request was too much for them! The weather just about held out with the occasional spitting of rain however this did not dampen their spirits. We got some gorgeous shots amongst the grounds of the hotel! Later on the speeches after a early dinner and I have to say the best man’s speech was hysterical! Everyone including myself and my assistant were seen laughing!

We finished up the night with some lovely romantic closing photo’s, a awesome Pixelstick image which is yet to be revealed and group hug from the Kirsty and Jon!

I’d like to extend a special thank you to my wonderful assistant ‘Kate’ from ‘Juniper Green Photography’ who made the day pass smoothly, took some brilliant photo’s and is a joy to work with!

Please raise a glass for the new MR & Mrs Munday!

Last week I travelled to Burnham Beeches near Slough for an engagement shoot between Katie & Jamie. We took a lovely walk in this woods complete and like any woodland walk came across all sorts of interesting locations and even some wildlife, a frog which seemed to have strayed a long way from the stream. After returning the frog to the stream we continued our walk and enjoyed some more relaxing natural photos. I’ll be photographing Katie & Jamie’s wedding later on this year. To get your own photos just like this contact me through the contacts section. To see more from their shoot just click the image!

When I was asked to photograph Rebecca and Lucian’s wedding I was delighted. This wonderful mix of English, Romanian and Italian guests made for a wonderful cocktail of nations who despite not being able to speak many of their languages were still all warm and welcoming to each other and myself! With Rebecca’s two super fun and energetic bridesmaids ‘Emma & Loiuse’ to help get Rebecca ready and ensure that nothing went wrong, the day went smoothly. After a warm welcoming from Rebecca’s parents we got down to the bridal prep. I’d like to thank Daphne & Stuart for the endless offerings off coffee and food throughout the morning! After a seamless morning getting Rebecca ready we made our way to the nearby Holy Trinity Church near Reading. There I met up with Lucian and the rest of his family! The service was wonderful with a live choir and plenty of colourful ‘feel good’ songs sang. After they tied the knot we travelled to the nearby Calcot Hotel for the reception. The hotel put on a lovely spread and decorated the room in the most amazing way. There were so many touching moments such as the first dance between Rebecca and her dad and the speeches made in multiple languages. I couldn’t possibly go into them all.

I’d like to thank Vasile as well for offering me a drink in the evening and for everyone else who made me feel welcome!
Please raise a glass for the new Mr & Mrs Obreja!
