Apr 15, 2019 | April 2019, Garden Marquee Wedding
O my, I have a corker in store for you tonight on the blog! Connie & Will’s garden marquee wedding was one of the best weddings I’ve been to…EVER! And I’ve been to quite a few as you can imagine 🙂 I love love love garden marquee weddings and this was absolutely no exception.
Connie & Will’s wedding reception was held in the garden grounds of Connie’s family farm home, complete with chickens, barns and tractor. Bunting covered the outside space along with many pots of spring flowers and even a Splat the Rat game and a coconut shy. The wedding was help in St Peter’s Church just down the road, so Connie & Will could make the perfect get away exit on the back of a tractor before arriving back home in time to be covered in confetti. Music was a big part of their wedding and their brass band played not only during the wedding service but in the courtyard too before guests were treated to a hearty chicken pie dinner in the marquee. The evening was topped off with an awesome ceilidh band which ALWAYS make for the most hilarious photos…
Amazing wedding guys, you totally smashed it!! Thank you so much for having Emma and I along, we loved every minute.

Dec 24, 2018 | July 2018, Penton Park
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.

Dec 20, 2018 | August 2018, The Mill at Gordleton
Goodness me, what a gorgeous new wedding venue The Mill at Gordleton is! Just on the edge of The New Forest, Goldleton Mill is a lovely counrty pub, serving delicious food and drinks. Although they’ve been holding small weddings for a while, they have only recently gone through a whole new refit, and have had a huge white marquee erected in the gorgeous gardens, so are now able to hold large weddings with lots of guests. The most wonderful thing about The Mill at Gordleton though, is that you can have your wedding outside in the gorgeous gardens; right next to the water. That’s exactly what Hannah & Tom did one sunny day in August – they had my favourite celebrate, David, conduct their wedding in front of their nearest and dearest, in the beautiful sunshine.
The Mill at Gordleton is fast becoming one of my favourite new venues – it ticks SO many boxes for me and the types of weddings I absolutely love to shoot. The gardens have kooky and quirky pieces of art hidden among the flowers and an abundance of wonderful little secret spots which Hannah & Tom had their photos taken in.
One of my favourite things about Hannah & Tom’s wedding, was the incredible decor they pulled off inside their marquee. The styling was breathtaking; I think I said ‘O my goodness, wow’ about a thousand times. The garden marquee was dripping in flowers – all pinks and mauves, with real wild berries and figs. The name places were flower inspired too, with beautiful handmade name places and of course, a naked wedding cake!
Such a gorgeous day, thank you so much for having me along to share it with you both, it’s been an absolute delight to get to know you both.

Oct 1, 2018 | August 2018, Garden marquee
Of 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.
