Gate Street Barn – Alison & Matt

Gate Street BarnI’m so happy to show you a snapshot of this GORGEOUS wedding of Alison & Matt’s at Gate Street Barn in Guildford. I won’t mention the fact that it rained solidly all day, and I mean allllll day, because I doubt anyone else really noticed, the day was so lovely and heartfelt. Gate Street Barn has recently been extended with big glass extra rooms, which flooded the areas with light and made my job much easier (thank you very much GSB!)

The wedding party were brill enough to brave the outdoors with me and posed for photos under brollies and the garden had some sheltered parts which made for some lovely couples’ photos. The evening was topped off with sparklers in the back garden before guests were treated to a ceilidh which, as usual, was hilarious. Cracking wedding guys, thank you so much for having Dan & I along!

Hope Farm Wedding in Dorset – Sarah & Alex

Hope Farm in DorsetThis wedding was AMAZING!! It’s rare I get to shoot at a new venue these days because so many of my referrals come from venues themselves, so I was very excited when Sarah & Alex booked me to photograph their wedding at Hope Farm in Dorset. I won’t mention the weather (you can probably see why…) but it didn’t matter AT ALL anyway because this wedding was a total blast!

The styling was gorgeous – golds and wild green foliage – with a fabulous floral arch under which they said their vows. The day was all about fantastic food, dancing, O and a Jager Bomb train, O yes!

A total feast for the eyes from start to finish, thank you so much for having me along!

I would absolutely love to shoot more weddings at Hope Farm in Dorset so if you’d like to chat to me about photographing yours, please get in touch here.

Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Claire & Matt

Beach weddings Bournemouth

Living in Hampshire gives me such a lovely assortment of wedding venues to visit, woods, fields, or like Claire and Matt’s wedding, the beach with Beach Weddings Bournemouth! Did I mention the newlyweds rode on a zip wire? No? Read on!

There is something very special about a beach wedding; the sound of the sea, the golden sands, the feel of the sun on your face…even though its here in the UK! We are lucky to have some wonderful beaches close by, living here on the South.

Claire got ready at the local Highcliff Marriott hotel with her lovely maids and little flower girl daughter, before making her way down to the beach in the famous cliff top lift. Claire looked incredible in her lace detailed gown as the bridesmaids complemented her in their blush pink dresses. The little sons looked so cool matching the other groomsmen in their little suits and bow ties – such cool kids!

The beautiful floral and driftwood archway was the perfect place for Claire and Matt to say their vows, while their family and friends watched and listened to their special readings. After ice creams, drinks and lawn games I took a walk along the beach with the couple, the sprinkling of rain wasn’t a problem and I got some shots with the sea and the beach, and even the cute beach huts, such a great backdrop!

Now, the part we are all waiting for! The ZIPWIRE! Claire and Matt were very brave as they decided on the spare of the moment to ride the zipwire from one end of Bournemouth pier right down on to the beach! I am sure it was such an exhilarating end to their day! After that excitement the couple had their first dance and celebrated into the night with their family and friends. I’m seriously lucky to have such cool clients to photograph!

Such a special day, and the zipwire was a first for me too! Congrats Claire and Matt xx

Here are a few of my favourite photos from their lovely day – thank you to Michael O’Sullivan who second shot for me, some of these are his.

Beaulieu Treehouses Wedding – Sian & Jordan

Beaulieu Treehouses weddingSian and Jordan weren’t about to allow a bit of rain stop their incredible day at one of my favourite ever wedding venues – Beaulieu Treehouses in Hampshire. In fact, spirits were so high and everyone had so much fun, I doubt they even noticed!

Getting ready at The Crown in Lyndhurst Sian had her make up done by the fabulous Frances Moore MUA, who it’s always lovely to see on the morning of a wedding. Sian wore a classically beautiful gown with lace and layers, which perfectly complimented the blue shades of the bridesmaids dresses.

I’m always so excited to photograph a wedding at the Beaulieu Treehouses –  its one of those quirky venues here in Hampshire that ticks a lot of boxes; outdoor, a bit unique, has a meadow and a fire pit near by…Oh and a rope bridge too, perfect!

We luckily dodged the showers after the ceremony when we all went outside for some family photos during the canapes, then Sian, Jordan and I ventured into the woods for some couple shots.

After the delicious meal of breads, salads, meat and cheeses, Sian & Jordan cut the cake, before guests were treated to ice cream from a cart outside the venue then warm apple juice and whisky at the fire pit. And of course, toasted marshmallows on sticks!

This day was truly special, everyone made Dan and I feel so comfortable and welcomed, thank you! Congratulations to you both, thank you so much for choosing me.
