So what happens when someone in the wedding industry gets married…a whole lot of pretty! Maids to Measure is a unique, UK based bridesmaid dress company and the brain child of Sinclair and her sister, India. So if anyone can have 13 bridesmaids, it’s Sinclair! Each bridesmaid with a bespoke bridesmaid dress to suit her style and 2 twins, the maids of honours, looking fabulous flaunting the new print!
.Something blue was inspired by the private dining room at Paradise by way of Kensal Green. The room has the most gorgeous tones of blues which I wanted to be the emphasis of the shoot. Collaborating with a fantastic team, I drew in cool blues, greys and golds throughout all aspects.
I’m excited to be able to share Jo & James’ white wedding from last summer with you…I had to keep it under wraps as it has been published in Brides magazine! Jo & James hosted a black and white wedding, asking the men to wear black tie, and the ladies to wear white. I love to be able to blend in as a guest at weddings, and welcome any excuse to buy a new dress, so I too wore white. I started the day by joining Jo and her bridesmaids at Shoreditch House where they had stayed the night before. Jo had a plaited up do by Barber and Parlour and Mac did an amazing job with the make up (and also saved the day with the bridesmaids make up appointment falling through on the day! Phew!)

The Chosen Wedding Fair is the brain child of Kiki – a real force to be reckoned with! As a bride she struggled to find a show to suit her and her needs….so she set one up! The Chosen Wedding Fairs have gone from strength to strength and now run at various times throughout the year, and numerous locations!
This week it’s all about the placement ring! Last week I photographed a collaboration with Knot & Pop who are a duo of luxury wedding planners and creative event producers. We’d teamed up with the wonderful Julie from Hollyhock Lane who produces hand drawn, illustrated wedding stationery.
Towards the end of last year I had the pleasure of working with Ruth Shaw, the British shoe designer who founded her brand, Harriet Wilde in 2008. Having seen huge success with the wedding shoe world, Harriet Wilde now has an accessories range to match! The following images are from the look book which I photographed for the launch of the collection. Be prepared for lots of pretty…and some wedding hair inspiration too thanks to Patrick Ludde!
Roadkill Couture is a project that I have dreamed of shooting for a long time! Its marmite, so grab a cup of tea and stay with me… The end of a year always brings equal measures of reflection and excitement for me. I love to look back at all of the amazing weddings and shoots I’ve been a part of, as well as set new goals for the following year. I feel it’s important to set goals (I never do resolutions!) but to set goals allows you to aim high and aspire to a challenge.
Have you considered a winter wedding? Last Christmas I photographed the beautiful winter themed wedding of Charlotte and Ben. This wedding has been a real hit with publications with the incredible details that Charlotte created. It’s now one year on since the wedding but I can’t resist sharing it with you!
Lucy and Mikes Cotswold wedding took place at Caswell House, Oxfordshire in May this year. Caswell House is a fantastic venue that I photograph at regularly throughout the wedding season. I was so flattered that Wedding magazine asked to feature this wedding. Lucy’s hard work could be seen throughout with the fine details and DIY aspects.
