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.
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.
This year seems to have flown by! I’ve been lucky enough to have shot some truly beautiful weddings for some fantastic couples. I’ve also had the opportunity to work at some fab new locations like Worthing Dome and Birling Manor.
Heather and I are really looking forward to 2016, and we’ll hopefully have some really exciting news to share with you in February too!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the lovely couples that have booked Heather and myself this year. Here’s a little round up of some of our fav pictures from 2015.
Jo & Tom’s story is of a holiday romance that blossomed into true love.
I first met Jo and Tom when I did an engagement session in the Surrey Hills a few months ago. We had so much fun that day so I knew that their wedding was going to be awesome.
Jo got ready at her parents house in Woking so I started the day with her there for croissants, bubbly and to meet the rest of her bridal party. It turns out they were all as smiley and friendly as Jo!
When it came to the ceremony itself later in the day, photography unfortunately wasn’t permitted, which was a bit of a shame, but you’ll just have to
take my word that the legal bit did happen and it was lovely!
After the ceremony everyone headed off to Bury Court for the reception. I’ve actually done a few weddings at Bury Court and it never disappoints – it’s such a lovely venue and it really comes to life when the bride and groom put their own special touches to the day. For Jo and Tom this was homemade gingerbread men wedding favours, gorgeous summer flowers and all the guests tables were named after places that had played an important part in Jo & Tom’s lives. And during the speeches guests were treated to not one but two slide shows that had been put together by Jo and Tom’s close family and friends – touching family stories and the obligatory collection of embarrassing photos provided plenty of tears and giggles!
To the amazing Jo and Tom, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!
It’s such a pleasure to document a wedding so full of beauty and beautiful moments, and to witness such strong relationship between family and friends is truly special. Amy and Martyn’s wedding story was full of such moments, wonderful people and stunning, hand picked details – being set against the incredible backdrop that is Great Fosters, makes for a wedding story not to be missed.
