As a wedding photographer I get so excited when I’m asked to photograph a wedding which I know is going to be a little bit different, so when I met the lovely Leanne & Rob for their engagement shoot and they told me about the styling they had in mind, I knew their wedding would be amazing! Leanne isn’t a fan of flowers so one of the first things she did was research alternative bouquets, and that’s where she came across brooch bouquets online. Totally made in any unique style you can think of, brooch bouquets can be personalised to each bride, with reference to things they love. In Leanne’s case that would be bats and Harry Potter!
Oakley Hall was the ideal choice for their wedding; as soon as Leanne & Rob saw the library room they knew that was where they wanted to get married. The old books and dark wood complimented their slightly gothic theme, and worked out to be the perfect background for the family photos when the rain meant we couldn’t venture out all day.
SUCH a fantastic day, thank you both so much for having Emma and I along to share it with you! Here are your highlights to keep you going until the full set is ready.
Saturday saw me back at my favourite wedding venue for Emily & Ben’s autumn barn wedding, and O my was it a treat! Clock Barn in Hampshire is a particularly wonderful wedding venue for autumn and winter weddings (or essentially weddings with less than ideal weather) because it’s as beautiful inside as it is outside. Some venues worry me a little when the weather is forecast to rain, but not Clock Barn. The top barn is ideal for photographing small family groups in front of, and the hanger barn just down the road makes for some really cool bridal party photos as the light is just scrummy down there.
Clock Barn looked particularly incredible on Saturday as Emily & Ben booked Owen from Little Lillies as their florist, who created a show stopping autumnal arch for them to get married in front. As usual he created something utterly astonishing, mixing textures and burnt orange roses…have a look, it’s all so beautiful!
Saturday was wonderful; nothing makes us photographers more happy than lovely couples who embrace the weather and just decide to go for it regardless. Emily & Ben – it’s been an absolute pleasure meeting and working with you both, thank you for treating Sharron and I like old friends, we loved every minute. Here’s a few photos to keep you going until they’re finished!

There’s something incredibly warm and cosy about a barn wedding in Autumn – perhaps it’s the candles or the fireplace, or the beautiful colours in the trees. Either way, Andy and Suzy pulled off the most beautiful Autumnal wedding at Clock Barn on Friday. The venue was styled wonderfully – with real horseshoes, apples and pine cones mixed among flowers with were warm reds, maroons and peaches. The bridesmaid’s dresses were perfect – grey and silver and sparkling. This wedding was absolutely gorgeous!
Although it rained for large portions of the day we were incredibly fortunate that it only seemed to rain when we wanted to be indoors anyway, and breaks came in the perfect place for photos.
I loved Friday, thank you both so much for having me along! So much love to you both, here’s a few photos to keep you going xx
