How does hanging hops and suspended Edison bulb lighting sound to you? This wedding really is a feast for the eyes so enjoy! Having photographed Thomas’ sisters wedding back in 2015 I was so excited to hear from Tom & Sophie. For me this is always the biggest compliment I can have – returning families! Sophie & Thomas chose to host their wedding at Sophie’s parents home. The perfect Shropshire wedding was due! Marquee weddings are always personal favourites of mine. They are a blank canvas and allow the couple to put their personal stamp on the day. Sophie and Toms was no exception.
A swoon-worthy Suzanne Neville ‘Belle’ dress was the one for Tara. The fishtail cut was just sensational and with the button detail all the way down the back to the top of her thighs and a high neck it really was beautiful.
Hannah & Steven chose to host their wedding at the ever jaw dropping Aynhoe Park. Wearing a subtle, blush pink wedding dress, Hannah was a stunning bride. Who would love a pair of those glitzy Jimmy Choos too to walk down the aisle?
It’s always so inspiring to shoot at new venues, and Newington House was no exception! This beautiful 17th Century stately home was the setting for Georgie & Bens beautiful wedding last year. The wow factor starts at the gates!
This post is all about the best of 2016! I feel its important to celebrate, to reflect and take stock as another year closes. The main wedding season drew to a close a couple of months ago. However I have had some gorgeous winter weddings and been spending the slower pace concentrating on projects for 2017! I’ve created my #2016bestnine grid from instagram. It’s a strong mix of styled shoots, real weddings and my personal travels with an oh so dreamy colour palette. Have you created yours yet? Go to http://2016bestnine.com
This Autumn wedding took place at Gate Street Barn in Surrey. Sam and Simon chose to really run with the autumnal theme and it was stunning. Sam’s sister, Sophie just so happens to be the super talented florist behind The Bloomery in Twickenham and pulled out all of the stops.
Charlotte & Dilip hosted their classic wedding at the stunning setting of Christ Hospital, the boarding school that the groom attended. As a backdrop it really did have the wow factor! Charlotte, a fashion designer, was able to create a stunningly classic wedding with the most amazing attention to detail. For more images and details, visit the feature on Rock My Wedding.
Sophie & Chris hosted their English Country garden wedding at Sophie’s parents home in Putney, London. It really was the perfect setting for them. Now living in Portland in the US it was hugely evident how important family is to them and it was fantastic to see 2 families join and traditions merge to create a truly personal day.
Bridal knitwear is making an appearance on the wedding scene and I love it! Earlier this year I travelled to Amsterdam for a photography conference. I find myself most inspired during my travels and therefore like to take advantage of this! I wanted to take the opportunity to collaborate on a shoot as a result of being there. As a result, I reached out to cashmere bridal knitwear designers Klaartje and Ella from Madame Seguin. Brussels based bridal designer Valentine Avoh provided the beautiful dresses for the shoot. With layers of textures and feathers the designs worked perfectly with the cashmere. The accessories from SIBO Designs brought a luxurious touch. Along with the statement jewellery from Cotton & Gems. Aesme had kindly hand drawn some bespoke botanical pieces to tie in the element of nature. The bridal knitwear “The knitwear collections are made in Mongolia by small knitting factories, made from cashmere yarn that is spun in Mongolia from fibers that are sourced from Mongolian herders. Madame Seguin’s core values include supporting the nomadic lifestyle and protecting …
Hollie & Dom chose an Aynhoe Park autumn wedding day. Having been featured on Rock My Wedding they claimed this wedding had some of the best aisle style they’ve seen! I have to agree! Hollie ensured that the Aynhoe Park Autumn wedding look was brought indoors to the orangery, using leaves to pave the way down the aisle, but also a stunning arch to frame them.
