Every year around January, I love looking back and reflecting on all the previous years’ gorgeous weddings and putting together a little blog post of my favourite photos. Although 2020 was a strange year and in no way went to plan, I was still lucky enough to photograph 7 wonderful weddings which absolutely helped keep me sane and happy.
I won’t bang on about all the heartbreak of 2020 because we all know how awful most of it was, so instead I’ll celebrate this absolute bunch of babes and their determination to prove that love always wins and no horrible virus can put a dampener of their joy.

Lauren & Alex’s wedding at The Old Vicarage in Dorset was one of those weddings where I just wished I’d been a guest! Everything was just so damned cool AND beautiful, which is an unusual and winning combination in my eyes. The bride wore a blue, yes BLUE wedding dress, with delicate pink flowers sewn in and possibly the sparkliest pair of heals I’ve ever seen.
Lauren and her gals got ready at The Kings Arms Hotel in Christchurch before arriving in style to The Old Vicarage in some cool vintage cars, generously loaned by some friends. Although it rained most of the day, this gorgeous pair didn’t let it dampen their spirits, even when it meant they couldn’t get married outside like they’d hoped. The best thing about The Old Vicarage is that, even if you are unlucky with the weather, the ceremony room with it’s huge stag head it just as wonderful as the great outdoors, so nothing was really lost. And with Willow & Wisps‘ glorious fauna, it looked as if the outside was inside anyway.
After the ceremony the rain suddenly stopped so we ran outside like crazy people to take some couples shots and the family photos, enjoying the lush and colourful gardens. A delicious BBQ and speeches followed, before the evening party kicked off with a hilarious dancing game, which made for some absolutely awesome photos!
Thank you so much lovelies, I had a blast!! Thank you for having Holly and I along – some of these photos are hers.

O my goodness, what can I say about Natalie & Jed’s AMAZING wedding at The Kings Arms Hotel in Christchurch?! Everything about their day was completely unique, and I can honestly say without a doubt that their Gothic inspired skull decor was the most incredible I’ve ever seen and was just so damn rock n’ roll!! The super talented Owen from Little Lillies had a field day getting his teeth into the styling; if you want something a bit different, he’s certainly your man.
Jed and Natalie said their vows in the Pavilion just across the road from the hotel before everyone enjoyed hot cider out on the lawn whilst we took photos. Almost stealing the show was their beloved dog, Indi, who arrived just in time to be in some of the photos, before everyone made their way to The Kings Arms and into the warm.
You could literally see the delight on everyone’s faces as they gazed at the table decorations in the wedding breakfast room, I don’t think anyone had seen anything like it before! As avid tattoo fans, Jed & Nat had given their guests favours of tattoo sleeves in their mini coffin boxes – I think the Nan’s in the room enjoyed putting these on the most!
What an amazing day, thank you SO much for letting me be a little bit part of it xxx
