One of my absolute favourite types of weddings to shoot in the world is garden marquee weddings on private land. They’re always so relaxed and so much fun – you can put your personality and stamp on the day with absolutely no restrictions from anyone else and you can decorate the wedding exactly how you choose. Lauren & Harry’s wedding was no exception – the wedding was held in the Church next door to Harry’s childhood home and then the reception in the family garden inside a huge marquee. They house attached to the garden is simply beautiful – we wandered around the grounds for their couple shots and used the fabulous front of the house as a backdrop.
Although they hid from my camera on the day, Harry’s family garden homes several beautiful peacocks, and so little peacock touches were dotted around in the decor and even on the cake. Harry & Lauren’s wedding had so much colour everywhere, from the bouquets to the ceiling of the marquee, to the handmade paper birds…all so wonderful.
I’m so delighted to have been a little part of this gorgeous wedding, thank you so much for having Emma and I along! Some of these photos are Emma’s.

It’s not often these days I get to shoot at a new venue so I was delighted when Kim & Perry booked me for their wedding at Dorney Court in Windsor. Not only was it Kim & Perry’s wedding but also a special birthday for Kim, so basically – double party! Dorney Court is a really unique venue – based around a Tudor House the gardens are absolutely gorgeous and, being June, were in full bloom for us. The Church onsite meant that Kim & Perry could have their wedding ceremony in the barn but also have a private blessing, and when they left the church their guests welcomed them into the gardens through a snow storm of confetti.
A double party needs a double dress so after Kim & Perry said their vows and had drinks and canapes on the lawn, Kim changed into her second party dress of the day – a 1950’s style which was perfect for dancing. Kim is by far one of the most stylish women I’ve ever met in my life, doesn’t she look fabulous!
I had such a fantastic day with these two and their brilliant kids, thanks for having Julie and I along!

O my goodness, I don’t even know how to put into words just how FUN Sam & Lorna’s wedding at Sopley Mill was this summer, just.so.damn.fun. 99.9% of my photos of Lorna are of her cracking up laughing, which should tell you everything you need to know about how happy Sam makes her; it’s written all over her face.
Sam & Lorna have the most wonderful bunch or family and friends – everyone was extremely warm and friendly to Holly and I and we felt like part of the day. They wanted a party and that’s what they got – with pies for dinner (who doesn’t love a pie?!) and impromptu singing and dancing from guests. I’ve waffled enough, I’m going to let the photos do the talking on this one!
Thank you for everything, you gorgeous pair you!
