Victoria & Adam's wedding - Barnsley House

I hadn't met Adam or Victoria before the day of their wedding and as I drove to Barnsley House in The Cotswolds I was anxious that I wouldn't gel with them or they might feel awkward infront of my camera... I needn't have worried - they are the most warm and lovely people, as are ALL their friends and family, and we all got on so well that they made my job a complete joy.

Vix and her beautiful bridesmaids, step daughter and her Mum got ready in the Secret Garden suite, just a perfect space with amazing lighting. They greeted me as a friend, and I cried along with everyone else in the room as Vix put on her stunning  Johanna Johnson dress.  

Vix's amazing hairdresser (and friend) Ian Denson from Steven Carey in London did an incredlbile job in getting everyone's hair perfect and right on time. Having him there for the whole day was fabulous - not many brides get to have their hair and make up done before the formals!  

The weather was completley perfect, an Indian summer after what felt like weeks of rain and wind. Having an outdoor ceremony was suprisingly intimate and Vix and Adam had chosen the most perfect readings to accompany their vows.  The whoops and cheers as they were declared Husband and Wife were electric - this is obviously a well loved couple!

Little Lake Flowers decorated both the outside area and the marquee so so beautifully and it was stunning.  I would highly recommend Lynfa @ Little Lake Flowers - she has an incredible eye and her Instagram is gorgeous!

I could gush on and on about this wedding but I'll let the pictures tell the story.  Enjoy x

Personal Post / Daffodil Girl

My daughter loves an excuse to put her tutu on and so when she was dancing round the house in it this Spring I had to grab a bunch of daffodils for a mini photoshoot.

It's so important to me to capture these little moments... her little cheeks, delicate fingers - I know how quickly time goes when you have children and I'm so glad I've taken time out to do little shoots with them as well as the more conventional images... their lives are very well documented and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Headshots for a local author

Carol Thomas approached me to take some headshots for her. She is a local author and her first book (Crazy Over You) was recently published and she needed some shots of her social media outlets and publicity.

She was incredibly easy to work with and very happy to be led around Arundel for a variety of poses and locations!

Thanks Carol for booking me and am so happy you are pleased with the results.

Josh & Cat's wedding - Dorset House School

Josh & Cat's wedding was beautiful and so unique in the way they included so many people in their special day. It really felt like a joining of families and the speeches were epic - I think there were 9 in total! During the ceremony a band/orchestra featuring members of both sides of the families played The Turtles - Happy Together which everyone sang to. It was just an amazing atmosphere in the barn and brought tears to my eyes. 

The details were amazing, crosswords on the tables, jigsaws to complete, quizzes, amazing crossword cake - so much thought and attention went into it all. 

Dorset House proved to be an absolutely perfect venue - the ceremony room just about big enough to fit everyone in! - and the grounds were the perfect size for group shots, games, and a little couple shoot with the newlyweds.
