One of the things I love the most about my job, is shooting at a venue for the very first time and discovering all the exciting little nooks and crannies which make for beautiful photos! I was one happy photographer when I saw this gorgeous gem of a greenhouse hiding in the huge, beautiful gardens at Cissbury in West Sussex. The fantastic rustic potting shed and all that light just made for the most wonderful photographs.
Lauren and Ben’s ceremony was held in the gorgeous and rustic barns behind the main house at Cissbury. The couples guests and family mingled in the sunshine before enjoying their meal in the second barn which was decorated with huge paper balls in between the rafters, a stunning use of the space. The wedding cake was also fantastic – one side was flowers and lace and the other side had a different activity the couple enjoyed for each tier! What a great idea!
How beautiful is Laurens lace and satin gown? And lets talk about the bridesmaids midnight and silver dresses too – they all looked so elegant and beautiful! One of the things I absolutely loved the most about this wedding was the fact that, rather than going with tradition, Lauren & Ben walked down the aisle together. How cool are they?! The moment when Lauren popped around the corner to where Ben was waiting was a unique moment I imagine neither of them will forget!
The walled gardens and huge barn doors provided such a beautiful backdrop to their day. For the couples photos I explored different patches of garden and a wonderful glen of woods and orchard, but that old greenhouse stole the show!
A truly wonderful day, congratulations guys! <3

I am so lucky to get to shoot regularly at one of my favourite Hampshire wedding venues, Clock Barn is Whitchurch! It is situated in such a lovely corner of the country and I enjoy every wedding that is held there.
I was very excited when Jo and Spencer booked me as the photographer for their special day this May, and what a special day it was! There were so many pretty details that made this gorgeous venue even more beautiful, Jo and Spencer put so much thought and love into making their day an absolute feast for the eyes for all of their guests.
Jo wore a beautiful fresh flower crown which suited her perfectly and looked wonderful with her gorgeous lace gown. The groom and his men looked fab in their floral ties and bow ties, especially fitting when stood next to the (not one but) two vintage VW camper vans!
We took the two VW camper vans out on a jaunt to the rolling hills to get some fabulous couples photos all that greenery was stunning. The barn looked lovely all decked out with twinkle lights and floral arrangements, and the delicate strings of bunting criss-crossing through the rafters. All the little details in the reception room were so well thought out, from the giant floral ‘Love’ sign, to the naked cake, and the delicate blooms suspended along one wall! Such thought and care was given to creating a beautiful atmosphere, plus – did you see the photobooth? In a vintage caravan no less!
I absolutely loved working with you both, thank you for making it so much fun, and for being so lovely to me xx
A big thank you to Anna for second shooting this one with me! Some of these photos are hers.
