Sopley Mill wedding photography – Lorna & Sam

Sopley MillO 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!

Clock Barn Wedding Photography – Laura & Mark

Clock Barn wedding photographyAhh my beloved Clock Barn! I’m so lucky that I get to shoot here so often – in fact I’m beginning to feel like I live here at the mo! They may as well allocate me a table to sleep under and fill me up with their mind blowing scotch eggs. So I was super happy as always when Laura & Mark booked me for their beautiful spring wedding.

One of the things I love the most about Clock Barn is that the gardens and surroundings change so quickly with the seasons and the weather, so Laura & Mark were blessed with a fabulous white flower tree in full bloom right outside the barn (I don’t pretend to know what type it is!) and hot pink flowers all up the edges. At other points in the year we’ll have a cornfield or in the autumn the trees will go a gorgeous hot red. I think this is why this place is so special and exciting to shoot at.

Laura & Mark chose soft, pretty pink flowers for their decor, with touches of gold and copper for a bit of sparkle. I love the burnt copper ribbons on the bouquets which looked awesome next to the mint green of the bridesmaids dresses.

An absolutely beautiful day with an even more beautiful couple – thank you for making Holly and I feel so welcome (some of these photos are hers).

Penton Park Wedding – Lauren & Simon

Penton ParkIt’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!

Rhinefield House Wedding – Amy & Kudzi

Rhinefield House

O Rhinefield House, how I love you! This venue is the most fabulous place to photograph – buried deep in The New Forest in Hampshire, Rhinefield House is surrounded by ancient trees and woodland. The gardens are simply beautiful; with tall blue gates and flowers with bright, bursts of colour.

Amy & Kudzi said their vows at St Saviours Church in The New Forest in front of their nearest and dearest, before leaving to a good old soaking of confetti. We stopped off on the way to Rhinefield for some photos, however because a storm was on the way it was extremely windy – not ideal for couple’s photos however the light was incredible! Luckily, the weather held off and we were able to capture the family photos outside in the lovely gardens at the hotel, before everyone went in for their dinner. Sometimes if the weather is a bit dodgy in the daytime, we are rewarded with a glorious sunset later on, and so happily we were able to pop out in the evening for some more photos, just as the sun dipped down behind the trees.

What a wonderful day, thank you to you both for making Holly and I feel so welcome. Thank you too to Holly who shot alongside me, some of these photos are hers.
