Garden Marquee Sunflower Wedding – Gemma & Dave

Garden marquee weddingOf all the types of weddings I’m lucky enough to get to shoot, I have to say that garden marquee weddings come my absolute top. I think it’s the fact that you can do WHATEVER you like, WHENEVER you like, and aren’t in anyway restricted by a venue with their own rules and regs (as long as you have understanding neighbours, of course!) makes for a truly unique and relaxed wedding.

Gemma & Dave’s marquee reception in Gemma’s family home garden, has to be one of the best weddings I’ve ever been to, I just flippin’ LOVED this day. From the gorgeous styling with about a thousand jars of wild flowers, to the delicious paella to the abundance of sunflowers which they grew specially, and the fact that live music played for the majority of the day, made this wedding seriously awesome.

Thank you so much for having me along, I had sooooo much fun! Thank you too to Dan who shot along side me, some of these photos are his.

St Giles House – Nilay & Andy

St Giles HouseIt’s so wonderful when I get to explore and shoot at a venue I’ve never been to before; it certainly gets the creative juices flowing and St Giles House is one that I will definitely be hoping to go back to! I adore the decor that runs throughout the stately house with the exposed brick mixed in with the antique paintings; it’s like a fabulous mix of the old and new. The gardens are huge and expanding, with 360 views all around and without doubt, the most beautiful bridal prep room I’ve ever seen.

Nilay & Andy’s day was beautiful – the house, the styling, the gardens…just a wonderful day of gorgeousness. The weather was perfect so guests got to enjoy the grounds and to sip champagne in the sunshine before going in for a wonderful 3 course meal. We even got a golden hour sunset which we were sure to take full advantage of.

Thank you for having Dan and I along, we loved every minute. Congratulations you lovely twosome!

Thanks to Dan too, some of these photos are his.

Hampshire Garden Marquee Wedding – Lauren & Harry

Garden Marquee WeddingOne of my absolute favourite types of weddings to shoot in the world is garden marquee weddings on private land. They’re always so relaxed and so much fun – you can put your personality and stamp on the day with absolutely no restrictions from anyone else and you can decorate the wedding exactly how you choose. Lauren & Harry’s wedding was no exception – the wedding was held in the Church next door to Harry’s childhood home and then the reception in the family garden inside a huge marquee. They house attached to the garden is simply beautiful – we wandered around the grounds for their couple shots and used the fabulous front of the house as a backdrop.

Although they hid from my camera on the day, Harry’s family garden homes several beautiful peacocks, and so little peacock touches were dotted around in the decor and even on the cake. Harry & Lauren’s wedding had so much colour everywhere, from the bouquets to the ceiling of the marquee, to the handmade paper birds…all so wonderful.

I’m so delighted to have been a little part of this gorgeous wedding, thank you so much for having Emma and I along! Some of these photos are Emma’s.

Dorney Court Wedding – Kim & Perry

Dorney CourtIt’s not often these days I get to shoot at a new venue so I was delighted when Kim & Perry booked me for their wedding at Dorney Court in Windsor. Not only was it Kim & Perry’s wedding but also a special birthday for Kim, so basically – double party! Dorney Court is a really unique venue – based around a Tudor House the gardens are absolutely gorgeous and, being June, were in full bloom for us. The Church onsite meant that Kim & Perry could have their wedding ceremony in the barn but also have a private blessing, and when they left the church their guests welcomed them into the gardens through a snow storm of confetti.

A double party needs a double dress so after Kim & Perry said their vows and had drinks and canapes on the lawn, Kim changed into her second party dress of the day – a 1950’s style which was perfect for dancing. Kim is by far one of the most stylish women I’ve ever met in my life, doesn’t she look fabulous!

I had such a fantastic day with these two and their brilliant kids, thanks for having Julie and I along!

Parley Manor Wedding – Georgia & Mike

Parley ManorGosh, what a BEAUTIFUL wedding I have for you here at Parley Manor in Dorset! Everything about Georgia & Mike’s wedding was simply gorgeous – gorgeous florals, gorgeous decor, gorgeous people.

Parley Manor is a really special wedding venue as you can get married in the gardens under a marquee, so it’s very close to feeling like you’re getting married outside without the fear of the British weather forecast. In fact we did have a few drops of rain just as Georgia walked towards Mike arm in arm with her Dad, but I doubt anyone noticed as everyone was too busy watching this lovely pair tie the knot.

After the ceremony we wandered around the beautiful gardens and secret little nooks and crannies taking couple photos whilst guests enjoyed drinks on the lawns. When guests went in for dinner they were treated with little gifts at the table – a funny nod to Mike’s pilot job with toy aeroplanes for the fellas to play with.

Everything about Georgia & Mike’s wedding was just so elegant and pretty – I absolutely LOVE their plant put table plan! An absolutely gorgeous day in every way, thank you so much for welcoming Holly and I along.
