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!

Sian and Jordan weren’t about to allow a bit of rain stop their incredible day at one of my favourite ever wedding venues – Beaulieu Treehouses in Hampshire. In fact, spirits were so high and everyone had so much fun, I doubt they even noticed!
Getting ready at The Crown in Lyndhurst Sian had her make up done by the fabulous Frances Moore MUA, who it’s always lovely to see on the morning of a wedding. Sian wore a classically beautiful gown with lace and layers, which perfectly complimented the blue shades of the bridesmaids dresses.
I’m always so excited to photograph a wedding at the Beaulieu Treehouses – its one of those quirky venues here in Hampshire that ticks a lot of boxes; outdoor, a bit unique, has a meadow and a fire pit near by…Oh and a rope bridge too, perfect!
We luckily dodged the showers after the ceremony when we all went outside for some family photos during the canapes, then Sian, Jordan and I ventured into the woods for some couple shots.
After the delicious meal of breads, salads, meat and cheeses, Sian & Jordan cut the cake, before guests were treated to ice cream from a cart outside the venue then warm apple juice and whisky at the fire pit. And of course, toasted marshmallows on sticks!
This day was truly special, everyone made Dan and I feel so comfortable and welcomed, thank you! Congratulations to you both, thank you so much for choosing me.
Here are a few of my favourite photos from their lovely day – thank you to Dan who second shot for me, some of these photos are his.
