I first met Liv back in 2012 at Heather & Tim’s Wedding – where she was the maid of honour & was immensely helpful throughout the day – especially during the group photos! So when her email dropped into my inbox enquiring If I’d be able to be her wedding photographer, I was massively excited! Knowing the crowd & some of the family already, I knew it was going to be a relaxed, fun & friendly day – one that would be immensely fun to document!
Katy and James’ wedding was an absolute corker! Scorching hot weather, a fabulous couple, mega friendly guests, a beautiful location and tons of gorgeous details.
Katy and James wanted dual coverage so they booked both Heather and I for their big day. When we checked the weather reports the day before and saw the possibility of heavy thunder storms/sun we decided to pack welly boots (luckily we didn’t need the wellies!) and sun tan lotion before heading off to East Meon in Hampshire to meet up with Katy and her bridal party who were getting ready at the local B&B.
After some truly awful May weather the sun decided to make a welcome appearance for Julia and Anuar’s wedding at Bury Court. And boy was it a beautiful day!
Although I’d not met Julia and Anuar before the wedding I had spoken to them on the phone and knew how warm and friendly they both were so I was mega excited about shooting their wedding!
The couple really wanted dual coverage of their wedding so I had Heather shooting with me for the day – it’s always lovely to capture both the groom and the brides morning prep! And at Bury Court the ceremony and reception all take place in the grounds of the venue so Heather and I were able to easily dart about from morning prep to ceremony and then reception without missing any of the action.
Catherine & Jon are two thoroughly lovely people, with the most welcoming group of family and friends. They started the day at Old Thorn’s Manor Hotel, before moving onto St. John The Baptist Church, and then Cain Manor – a trio of great venues!
The weather was absolutely perfect and everyone just had a really chilled, relaxed day – so much so that they were up for getting creative with group shots. I even managed to steal Catherine & Jon away at Sunset for a few photos in some of the most gorgeous light I’ve seen in a long time!
They had myself & Heather along for the day to document the fun, laughter, love (& jumping!)
Following on from Jen & Steves wonderful registry office wedding in Brighton with Marilyn & Elvis – they had a humanist ceremony at the beautiful Hill Place in Hampshire. They took over the house for an entire weekend of Fun, Laughter, Frisbee & Jaegermeister!
Jen’s an amazing makeup artist who I’ve had the great pleasure of working with at a few weddings, so for her to choose me to document their wedding(s!) was a huge honour! & a special thank you to Heather, who came along and documented the day with me! The images below represent a good mix of both our efforts.
This wedding has just been featured over on RocknRollBride – Where Jen and Steve have provided a lovely write up of their experience.
Just a quick post today, out of twenty five birthdays I think I’ve been to Beaulieu for two of them!. I went to Beaulieu motor museum as a small child, & have the photo, that pretty much everyone who’s been there has –
The photo of a young me, standing in front of James Bond’s Aston Martin DB4. Yup – 007’s car. One of the coolest car’s ever. ergo, I’m cool by association. or not.
My second time to Beaulieu was for my 25th, although with Susanne & Aled getting married, which is slightly more important, & the reason I was there; So I should probably refer to it as their wedding day, rather than my birthday…
So, without further ado here are a few of my favourite photos from
my birthday their wedding!
Tiggy & Tommy’s wedding earlier this year was a ton of fun – regardless of the rain, these guys knew how to bring the fun!
I hadn’t had the chance to meet them before their wedding day – I had a single phone call with Tom & a couple of emails with Tiggy, but that was enough to know they were my kind of people – they love photography & know how to throw a great party! In fact, based on their love of Lomography – they could probably teach me a thing or too!! (Did I mention film scares me??)
They had their wedding at All Saints Church in East Meon, & spent the day surrounded by their (lovely, friendly & ultra welcoming!) friends & family at The Manor Barn, Buriton.
If I there was an award for the distances travelled by guests to be at a wedding, I think T&T’s wedding would win by airmiles – people came from EVERYWHERE… Scotland, America, South Africa, Japan, literally everywhere (there were countries represented I had never even heard of) all to be a part of their day – It was an absolute honour to be a part of =)
Here’s a wedding I’d been looking forward to for such a long time!! – Amy & Matt’s gorgeous wedding at Rhinefield House! Regular readers will remember them from their engagement – you know the one.. the utterly gorgeous one…
Amy & Matt booked me around 18 months before their big day, so I had a great chance to get to know them & when the day finally arrived I was so excited/proud/pleased/glad to be a part of it! Thanks for including me guys =)
Anyway, I had a really hard time picking which images to share – as I love every last one of them!
