Earlier this year, I had the absolute delight and pleasure of capturing Steph & George’s glorious day, at the incredible Plywell Park. It’s unusual for me to shoot at a local venue I haven’t shot at before, so this was a total treat! Nestled in the heart of the New Forest, Pylewell Park is a wedding photographer’s dream come true. Its historic charm, sprawling gardens, and picturesque views provide an idyllic setting for couples seeking a fairy-tale celebration. O, and did I mention there’s a secret beach just around the corner?!
Fabulous colours, fabulous food, fabulous company. What a corker! Thank you for having me along for the ride guys!

Saturday’s wonderful winter wedding at The Domus in Beaulieu will go down in my personal history as the windiest wedding yet! Despite the crazy weather we had, Poppy and Ryan had the most beautiful day; saying their vows in front of their loved ones at St John’s Church in Boldre and then onto the glorious Domus in Beaulieu. Bell & Blossom created beautiful bouquets for poppy and her bridesmaids in classic white and thistles, to compliment Ryan’s Scottish heritage and of course, the kilts!
Even when the weather is being tricky I almost always seem to get lucky with the photos to have a small window of dry/calm wind, so we took full advantage when the gale dropped a little and took some photos outside. The best way to deal with strong wind during couples shots is just to go with it, laugh and have fun, and that’s exactly what they did.
The Domus is lovely for winter weddings because it’s so cosy inside with it’s huge, real fireplace and abundance of candles. Poppy & Ryan both have the warmest, loveliest families so I was made to feel right at home. Thank you for being so bloomin’ wonderful, I’ve absolutely loved being part of your day.

The Domus at Beaulieu is an absolute show stopper of a wedding venue – over 800 years old and originally the monks’ dormitory at Beaulieu Abbey. Old tapestries hang on the walls between candles in the windows, so the whole venue feels historic and that little bit magical.
Kerry & Pete’s wedding was simply perfect from start to finish. A unseasonably hot September day meant their guests could wander around the pretty gardens in the sunshine enjoying their drinks and canapes before moving inside for dinner and speeches. Because we had such a bright and sunny day, we were bless with the most incredible golden hour, so nipped outside again for a few minutes to make the most of the gorgeous light.
An absolutely beautiful day, thank you guys so much for having Holly and I along! Here are a few photos to keep you going before the whole set is ready.

I can’t even begin to tell you what a joy and privilege photographing James & Chris’ fabulous New Forest wedding at Emery Down Village Hall was! Well I could, but I’d literally be here all night. I LOVE these boys; they’re just so bloomin’ lovely. I knew they would be right from our first planning meeting when they invited me round for Tapas and wine. How could a girl resist?!
Chris & James got married at Salisbury registry office in front of their very best and closest family and friends before we all went into the pretty gardens round the back for some family photos and couple shots. On our way to Emery Down Village Hall, guests popped off to the pub whilst we made a fleeting stop in the New Forest opposite The Drift Inn for some New Foresty couple shots and to make the most of the gorgeous scenery.
Once back at Emery Down Village Hall, guests welcomed James & Chris into the garden under a shower of confetti before everyone went inside for a yummy picnic of meats, cheese and breads. Hilarious speeches were said in the great outdoors giving the lovely team of helpers time to turn the room around ready for the evening party where my favourite DJ Simon played a mix of non cheesy dance floor fillers. These guys also had the best sweety table I’ve ever seen – all garden themed to mark their love of their own garden. My son Ted would have lost his mind!
Thank you both SO much for pulling off the most fabulous day, I’m so happy I could share it with you and even happier I now get to call you both friends. Congratulations guys!

Penny & Sebastian’s wedding at Beaulieu Hotel in the heart of the New Forest was an absolute beauty and a pleasure to photograph. Friends and family had traveled from all over the globe to celebrate with them, so the wedding was full to the brim with love and people who were so, so happy to be together. The wedding decor reminded us that spring is definitely here with touches of pinks and greens in the bouquets and the garden was in full floral bloom. Guests made the most of the sunshine by enjoying drinks and canapes in the pretty garden whilst we popped out across the road for their couples shots.
We were lucky enough to get the most beautiful light in the evening; and grabbed the golden hour with both hands to make the most of it with their photos.
What a wonderful day, thank you both so much for having me along, I loved every minute.
