This September I was so delighted to be back at my favourite wedding venue – Ashley Wood Farm in Salisbury. There’s something just so beautiful about the sandstone barn and duck egg blue doors; I’d shoot here every week if I could! So I was over the moon when Laura & Will booked me for their wedding which took place this late summer.
Laura & Will got married at their local church before exiting to a sea of confetti and jumping into their navy blue vintage car. As they only live a stones throw away from Ashley Wood Farm and regularly walk their dog near by, they knew of some gorgeous little hidden beauty spots around the grounds, so although I’ve been lucky enough to shoot many a wedding there over the years, they introduced me to some lovely new places! They ended the night with a fantastic ceilidh dance which always has wedding guests in stitches, and what a better way to work off that wedding dinner?!
Such a wonderful day, thank you so much for choosing me to capture it! Congratulations to you both.

O Rhinefield House, how I love you! This venue is the most fabulous place to photograph – buried deep in The New Forest in Hampshire, Rhinefield House is surrounded by ancient trees and woodland. The gardens are simply beautiful; with tall blue gates and flowers with bright, bursts of colour.
Amy & Kudzi said their vows at St Saviours Church in The New Forest in front of their nearest and dearest, before leaving to a good old soaking of confetti. We stopped off on the way to Rhinefield for some photos, however because a storm was on the way it was extremely windy – not ideal for couple’s photos however the light was incredible! Luckily, the weather held off and we were able to capture the family photos outside in the lovely gardens at the hotel, before everyone went in for their dinner. Sometimes if the weather is a bit dodgy in the daytime, we are rewarded with a glorious sunset later on, and so happily we were able to pop out in the evening for some more photos, just as the sun dipped down behind the trees.
What a wonderful day, thank you to you both for making Holly and I feel so welcome. Thank you too to Holly who shot alongside me, some of these photos are hers.

O the beautiful Lainston House in Hampshire! What an absolute treat to photograph it is, so pretty with so many unique areas to photograph couples in – like their mini summer house and old ruins; what a delight!
Megan & Dan began their wedding at St Nicholas’ Church in Eastleigh in front of their nearest and dearest before leaving to a barrage of confetti and exiting in a beautiful old vintage car. Once at Lainston House, guests were treated to canapes and drinks on the lawn in and among the daffodils whilst we took a wander round the grounds for their couple shots and eventually a few family photos in front the house. The evening celebrations were kicked off after some very funny and heartfelt speeches before the band got everyone up on their feet to dance the night away.
I hope the photos show what a truly wonderful and relaxed wedding Megan & Dan had, congratulations you gorgeous pair!
Thank you to Hannah Walker for second shooting with me on this one, some of these photos are hers.
