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!

Wedding at Ashley Wood Farm – Laura & Will

Ashley Wood FarmThis 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.

Garden Marquee Sunflower Wedding – Gemma & Dave

Garden marquee weddingOf 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.

New Forest Wedding – The Three Tuns – Chris & Alex!

Ahhh how I loved this wedding! And what better setting than the glorious and beautiful New Forest in Hampshire. Chris & Alex tied the knot in St Mary’s Church in Bransgore in Hampshire, before crossing the road to The Three Tuns pub where they had a sunny yellow decorated marquee in the garden. Despite the rain everyone had a blast – and I loved that the bridal party embraced the wet with me and let me photograph them under big white brolly in the picturesque lush green garden.

It’s been so much fun getting to know you guys and capture your day, thank you for being such fabulous clients xx
