Woo-hoo! Congratulations lovely Anna & Alex who had the most wonderful wedding Saturday at Penton Park in Hampshire. I absolutely adore Penton Park and the team who work there so was delighted when Anna and Alex got in touch last year and asked if I was free to capture their day.
Although they weren’t able to have their wedding ceremony outside like they’d planned due to the rain, the inside of the house is so flippin’ beautiful that no one minded one bit. Then, as if by magic, after their ceremony the sun appeared and everyone was able to enjoy the canapes and drinks out on the lawn in front of the gorgeous house. Anna & Alex had guests from every corner of the Earth attend, a true testament of how lovely they are and how many close friends they’re amassed over the years.
Instead of a traditional sit down meal, Anna & Alex selected to have ‘bowl food’ – where every guest is given 3 different smallish bowls of food such a salmon and pasta or chicken and bacon. It encouraged everyone to mingle and chat more as they weren’t stuck on one seat during dinner; such a lovely idea which I’ll be mentioning to future clients looking for something a little different at meal time. After some hilarious speeches inside the main hallway, the evening party kicked off when the cake of cheese was cut, and everyone danced away as the sun went down.
What an absolutely wonderful day, thank you so much for having me along! It was a total pleasure.

This July I was lucky enough to get to shoot at one of my favorite local venues – the wonderful Penton Park in Hampshire. As well as a beautiful wedding and events venue, it’s also a much loved and treasured family home, which is exactly why Penton Park feels to warm and welcoming every time I step through the door.
It was evident how much love and care Suzy & Orlando put into the decor and styling; everything was simple and elegant with soft pastel touches. The weather was perfect if a little windy, so guests were able to enjoy the gorgeous gardens and have their drinks and canapes outside, whilst we took advantage of the beautiful fields for their couple shots.
What a perfect day, thank you so much for being so utterly lovely to Dan and I. Some of these photos are his too.

It’s been a few years since I’ve had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at Penton Park in Hampshire, so I was more than just a little bit excited for Lauren & Simon’s May wedding! We had a gloriously hot and sunny day which is always wonderful as guests can make the most of the beautiful gardens and enjoy the lawn games whilst sipping champagne.
Lauren & her girls got ready upstairs in the stunning old house, where it was lovely to see my make up buddy Frances Moore making the ladies all look gorgeous. Lauren had the most beautiful veil, which was so long and elegant and delicately light. Vows and promises were made in Church just next to Penton Park, before they exited to a huge shower of confetti and strolled back to the house for canapes.
I don’t think I’ve ever photographed a wedding before where so many people attended from so many far corner of the world, a real testament to such a lovely couple who have collected many friends from all over the world and have such warm and welcoming families. What a wonderful day! Thank you so much for having Dan and I along, we loved every minute. Mwah!
