O how good it felt to be back at Clock Barn in Hampshire finally! And certainly back with a bang for Kimberley & Tim’s most glorious day. This was the first wedding where I’ve had the chance to photograph the new prep room called The Stables – a gorgeous converted stable room beside the main barn with plenty of space and large mirrors for everyone to get ready comfortably and safely hidden away. The barn was decorated by one of my favourite florists – Owen from Little Lillies with a showstopping floral circle arch which made an incredible backdrop during their vows. Kim’s bridesmaids wore dark purple dresses which also looked beautiful alongside the soft purple roses and succulents.
Due to a few on going restrictions, the reception had to be seated however the sun shone and everyone enjoyed chatting and drinking on the new benches in the paddock field. Kim & Tim provided some lawn games including space hopper horses which was just about the best thing I’ve ever seen. It was also wonderful to see Amanda from Reilly cakes again after all this time, check out her beautiful creation further down.
As the sun started to set Kim & Tim had their first dance outside whilst the band Gentlemen of the Road played, and everyone got to relax, with a drink in hand, listening to fantastic tunes and nibble of pizza. What could possibly be better?
A gorgeous day and a truly gorgeous couple, I’m so, so happy you got to have your day in the end and it was magnificent. Happy, happy wedding!

Ooh I love a cosy winter wedding! And there’s been none cosier or more festive than Verity & Mike’s gorgeous winter wedding at Clock Barn this weekend. As huge Christmas fans I knew they were planning a Christmassy theme, but I wasn’t prepared for just how beautifully festive they would make the Clock Barn. The rooms were filled with Scandinavian style red, white and wooden decorations, a santa’s sleigh and of course tonnes of twinkly lights. Guests were given handmade crackers as favours and some fantastic little glasses which, when put to your eye, turn the lights around you into Christmas trees, angels or snowflakes! I can’t really describe it as I’ve never seen anything like it before, although trying to hunt some down on Amazon as I type this as I know my kids would love them!
We were given the most prefect weather anyone could wish for at a winter wedding – cold but bright and crisp with a lovely golden setting sun so we were able to take the couples photos we wanted outside plus the family photos before everyone went inside to warm up and tuck into a delicious 3 course meal. It was also really good to work with the boys from Devoted Films again; if anyone is looking for a wedding videographer, I really recommend these guys and can’t wait to see the film!
Absolutely nailed it guys! Thank you so much for having Emma and I along, we love it and it was truly beautiful. Congratulations!!

I was back at the glorious Clock Barn in Hampshire last week for Izzy & Dan’s beautiful late summer wedding. It was the first time I’ve had a bride get ready in the new Lavender Barn – a lovely space just a stones throw away from the main barn where the bridal party can get ready in a calm and light and airy room, perfect for bridal prep photos.
Izzy & Dan’s wedding was absolutely beautiful in every way imaginable – from the soft, summer pastel florals by the hugely talented Garden Inn to the incredible cake that Dan made himself! I think Izzy is my first bride to have a ponytail in her hair and I LOVE it! She looked totally gorgeous but also super cool… yessss to brides doing things a little uniquely!
These guys literally laughed the whole day which was totally infectious and I have no doubt they both had the best day of their lives. Sooooo much love to you both, here are a few teasers to keep you going!

Ooh I love love love everything about Lucy & Jake’s Hampshire barn wedding at Clock Barn yesterday! The barn was absolutely alive with flowers by the super talented Lady Lissy Floristry; flowers hung from the ceiling and seasonal pumpkins were scattered among the lanterns.
Lucy looked incredible in her elegant dress, as did the bridesmaids in their sparkly peach dresses, which all coordinated beautifully with the peach, green and white flowers. After a month of rain we were lucky enough to have a dry afternoon so we could wander the grounds freely for their photos and make the most of the gorgeous autumn colours.
Thank you both for having Ange and I along, we had the most wonderful day with you all. Many, many congratulations, and here are a few photos to keep you going until the rest are ready <3

Ahhhh what a joy it was to photograph these absolute babes yesterday at their autumn Clock Barn wedding! As soon as I met Katie & Freya for their engagement shoot back in the summer I knew we’d have so much fun together and that their wedding would be ridiculous amounts of amazing… and boy was I right!
Katie & Freya come with the most wonderful bunch of friends and family – right from when we arrived Emma and I were made to feel incredibly welcome and like part of the family. Both brides had 4 bridesmaids each and a best man (a symmetry I most enjoyed during the group photos!) and all got ready at either Clock Barn or Norton Park just down the road. Both ladies were proudly walked down the aisle by their Fathers as everyone watched on in the big main barn, before walking outside to a sea of confetti. Although it rained off an on all day (bit of a theme lately), the girls braved the weather and we went out for couples photos regardless – in fact they were so elated I think they barely noticed the rain.
The venue was alive with flowers by the super talented ladies at The Blooming Workshop and the food by Galloping Gourmet was excellent as usual. Yesterday was a wonderful day in every way – wonderful people, wonderful venue and of course, the most wonderful brides <3
Thank you SO much for having Emma & I along, we had the most gorgeous day. Here are a few photos to keep you going before the full set is completed. Lots of love to you both!

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!
