O my goodness – how do I even begin to put into words how amazing 2018 has been?! First of all, the year FLEW by, I can’t believe I’m sat at my desk again contacting all of my lovely 2019 couples to book in their planning meetings when I was only here doing this for the 2018 guys 5 minutes ago. This year just seemed really easy, with gorgeous weather, gorgeous venues and even more gorgeous couples with big smiles and even bigger hearts. I’ve honestly loved this year so, so much.
I’ll never ever take for granted the trust my couples give to me with capturing their most awesome day – I know what a privilege and honour this is. You allow me to do something that makes me truly happy in a vocation that I love, so for that I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
So to each and everyone of my fabulous 31 couples in 2018, THANK YOU, and the happiest of New Years. Ooh, and…can you spot you??
Love, Mia xx

O my – I don’t even know where to begin with how brilliant 2017 was for me; so many wonderful clients, many whom I’m lucky enough to now call friends. So many beautiful venues, many of which I’m lucky enough to now be recommended at, and barely any rain! Hallelujah!
Thank you so much to Clare who shot along side me most of the year, I’ll miss you more than you’ll know. Dan & Leoni too, thank you for making this year so much fun to go to work.
Thank you to my photography Sync girls, who make every day better and like chatting at the water cooler a virtual reality.
But mainly thank you to my clients, who have trusted me with one of the best days’ of their lives, I’ll never stop being humbled by this.
2018…let’s do this!!
Here are a few of my favourites from throughout the year <3
Venues I regularly shoot at can sometimes feel a little bit like my babies, so I know you’re not supposed to have favourites…but I kinda do a little bit with Ashley Wood Farm! This venue is O so flippin’ gorgeous, with it’s duck egg blue barn doors and sand coloured walls, plus I LOVE the fact you can opt to get married outside in the garden if you choose to. Not only that but it has the loveliest little cottage on site to get ready in in the morning and to stay in the night of the wedding… so I may even be so daring to say it’s pretty much PERFECT.
So when Emily & Jim asked me to be the photographer for their September wedding at Ashley Wood Farm, you can imagine I was delighted! Everything about their wedding was absolutely-knock your socks off-gorgeous, and the barn was styled impeccably. All the tables were given brightly coloured flowers in cute jars, with gold and hessian touches and multi-coloured ribbons hanging from the ceiling. They even had botanical information cards up-cycled as bunting, O my!
After a week of threatened rain, we were lucky and Emily and Jim were able to wed outside in the garden exactly as they had wanted to. Afterwards, they were met with a shower of confetti instead of rain, before guests mingled, chatted and enjoyed the canapes.
Before the meal we wondered around the grounds capturing their couple shots, before the evening party kicked off with an awesome Ceilidh band which got almost everyone up on their feet.
I LOVED this wedding, thank you so much for having Dan and I along; some of these photos are his <3

Gosh, I don’t even know where to start with how brilliant 2016 has been for me! So many wonderful clients, many many of whom I’m now proud to call friends, plus I’ve got to shoot in so many incredible and beautiful venues. I’m extremely lucky to have been invited to become one of Clock Barn‘s recommended suppliers this year so I can now officially say that I’m a recommended supplier in ALL of my favourite venues. Wow, how lucky am i?!
Another fabulous year shooting with my best gal and wedding sister Clare and also the lovely Dan, who’s doing so well with his own weddings that he’s flying the nest and is off to focus on his own business in 2017. He shall be deeply missed but I’m so proud of him and everything he’s achieved with me these last few years. I’m excited to be taking on a new assistant for next year though…more of that to follow soon!
Thank you SOOOO much to all of my wonderful clients of 2016 for making this year so brilliant for me, you all make my job what it is. Loves ya!
Here’s to an equally fabulous 2017 xx
