Weddings just have something special. You can’t put your finger on it – It’s a sort of intangible magic.
Duaa and Titus’ Pelham House Wedding was packed full of this magic.
Not only did they put the entire day together from the other side of the planet, in just a couple of months.
But they planned their day alongside relocating, across the globe + moving house + starting new jobs.
These guys certainly know how to make life tough for themselves – but they certainly pulled it off.
Katie & Charles were married a few weeks ago at Firle Place, the Riding School to be precise – a hugely popular country house wedding venue in Sussex and one I’ve had the pleasure of returning to many times over the years for weddings.
I’m a big believer that it’s the people that make a wedding, it’s not always about the venue, the weather or the details. Ok, so it also helped the visual side of things that they had a beautiful venue, beautiful weather, beautiful details and an all star team of suppliers. But at the end of the day, people make the wedding – my role is all about capturing those human moments, the little laughs, the looks and the feelings – and this day had that by the shed load.
Where to begin with this day, it was a total roller coaster of joy. Max said in his speech that he and Katie are always the happiest people in whatever room they’re in – it’s impossible not to agree – smiles and laughter covered their faces for the entire day, except perhaps with a small break for the emotional bits – but those are entirely required at a wedding!
They certainly had some competition from their family and friends in the happiness stakes though, the joy and enthusiasm from everyone was utterly contagious – everyone was in incredible spirits and completely up for a party. From the excitement of the preparations in the morning through to the dancing in the evening, everything was infused with joy – exactly what’s needed to make for an incredible day.
Lucy and Martin are super organised – having booked the majority of their wedding already when they met me, some 18 months before their wedding – they knew exactly what they wanted from their day – they wanted a relaxed vibe, where they could bring together all their friends and family to let loose and have an amazing party. Perfect!
Helen and Will’s Bartholomew Barn Wedding – Wow, what a corker of a day. Late Autumn can traditionally be a lousy time of the year for weather – but not so for Helen and Will, the blue skies and sun had could have convinced me that I’d arrived at their wedding a few months early – The truth is, the weather was better than a lot of our August weddings!
I met a lady a few years back at Becca and Phil’s wedding, at the time I didn’t know her name.
I remembered her fondly because she was the most excited about sparklers and the subject of one of my favourite photos. It was contagious – potentially the happiest face I’ve seen in a photograph ever. She’d been a fun and lively guest all day – but when the sparklers came out, she turned it up to 11.
Alice and Greg got married just before Christmas at Cowdray House. A Cowdray House wedding is always a grand affair, and this was no exception! It was the most magical day!
Wow, where do I start with this one? Laura & Gavin are brilliant fun and were smiling from ear to ear from beginning to end of their wedding – as was I!
A few weeks back, on what must have been the hottest day of the year, Kathy and Greg celebrated their wedding at a brand new wedding venue near Windsor (Wraysbury – to be precise!) – The beautiful Amber Lakes. We were told they were only the second couple to have had their wedding at Amber Lakes (so far!), so we feel incredibly privileged to have been able to share their wedding day with them.
