Take me back to a field in Hertfordshire when the sun shone, the drinks flowed, the party was pumping and I knew all the secrets I needed in order to wind up the groom following his best man’s speech! Which I did of course, causing the bride to stop and sit down on the floor in her dress before dissolving in to a fit of the giggles. Lindsey and Mike stressed they wanted a chilled out day in the middle of a field with all their loved ones and they did exactly that with their Foxholes Farm Wedding. No stress, no fuss, just all round awesome sunny wedding fun. Including the world record for the amount of Dirty Dancing lifts ever attempted at one wedding before the groom and his partner were finally successful! This gorgeous pair had even planned for some of the guests to camp and were serving up […]Read More
When it came to planning, these two told me they wanted a really chilled day, “We loved tipi weddings because we love live music and festivals etc so we started going down that route. Once we were sure that’s what we wanted we started looking for places to hold the ceremony and very kindly Tits family friends (The French’s) offered to let us use their farm for the day.” And so their tiki tipi festival wedding was born! I should say at this point that ‘Tit’ is so named because his surname is Titterton. He is so frequently called Tit though, that I’m sure most people wouldn’t be able to tell you his actual first name! Tit by name but certainly not Tit by nature, he is more than a little bit awesome and won me over with his amazing proposal plans even if they didn’t quite work out… “Tit […]
Okay, so the rain is starting to piss a few people off, me included, but I have to admit to doing a little “whoop” when I got home to see the picture above on the big screen. They might not have ordered a rainy Stamford wedding but that is what they got and sometimes you just have to embrace it, which is exactly what Abbie & Jamie did. Don’t let the rain ruin your wedding day, I promise I won’t let it ruin the photos! These two embraced their rainy Stamford wedding to such an extent that at one point we had to spend 10 minutes in a door way for fear of being washed away. They also embraced my madness, my requests and everything else the day threw at them, Abbie just put on a pair of Toms, hiked up her dress and made her way from one venue […]
I bloody love a shoot just for the heck of it, to celebrate how far you’ve come, how strong you are, and how amazing you look doing it. And what better way to start your 30’s than by channeling the 80’s?! I did this shoot at Romy’s house the day before her 30th birthday and 80’s fancy dress party to celebrate. She’s one of the most fearless women I’ve ever met and I’m a little obsessed with how these photos turned out. Gin is always a welcome addition to our relationship but it wasn’t even needed this time and she rocked it… Madonna has nothing on this woman.
On a recent trip to the south coast I met up with two awesome women who have set up a fab new business to take care of you when you need it. Reset Dorset creates pop up wellness events incorporating a combination of fitness, treatments, workshops, demos and food all designed to inspire and encourage you to live your life your best life. Self care is a big buzz word at the moment and these two are there to help you do it well…if you live in Dorset that is! Even if you don’t though, there is something to learn from being refreshed, rebalanced and restored by taking a little time for you. It was a windy day at the beach but we made that work for us and now their clients can put a face to the business.
I was so excited when Alice asked if we could include some smoke in their woodland shoot, I wasn’t so excited about the rain though. Turns out I needn’t have worried because these two took it all in their stride, danced as it poured and jumped in to the back of their car when it was at it’s worst. The unpredictability of it all and a dose of sugar from the doughnuts they bought mean this is one of my favourite shoots to date! Plus I took Elsie along for the ride and she was pretty darn good at making them laugh.
HOLY SHIT BALLS THIS PREVIEW WAS HARD TO CHOOSE! Like really really REALLY hard. I was still buzzing at 1.30 in the morning after this wedding, it was the kind I would have happily stayed at till the last guest had left! When the heart of my wedding season kicks off in this way I just want to do it over and over and over and over and over and over again. You get the idea right? Well Rosa and Freddie had a family farm marquee wedding of their very own creation and it was just perfect. Yesterday was all about partying in fields with dogs on the dance floor and a couple who did it the very best way they knew how alongside two best men who hired a smoke machine just for their entrance to the marquee in front of guests who danced like their lives depended on […]
I love taking photos of families and I’m here to give a little shout out to those that might be thinking about booking me…please do it soon if you are! Fun family photography is my favourite and I don’t want to put any pressure on your or anything but once wedding season swallows me up my time is limited and I’m really crap at saying no so please don’t make me! I’ve had an awesome time lately meeting some really amazing families of all different shapes and sizes. It’s not scary or daunting, my only intention is to spend some time with you, take pictures of what you do and be sure that you have some fun in the process. If you want to document some time between you and your loved ones please get in touch via my contact page and tell me a little bit about your clan.
Adele and Paul are regulars at Glastonbury and knew exactly what they wanted from their day. Their hearts were set on a tipi festival wedding and what they pulled together was exactly that! After getting engaged in Sydney back in 2017 they started planning every little detail (with the help of their family) and ended up with the sort of wedding I completely love to shoot. KellyFest was an absolute blast. When I arrived, there were about twenty people in one hotel room and I knew from the off that this day was going to be non stop high energy and I wasn’t wrong. I wasn’t even surprised to learn that Paul had bought flares instead of smoke bombs for their groups photos, in the end it suited them perfectly! Here’s a little about what the couple had to say about the day… “After a few days on google searching […]
BUUUUSH! Was the word I shouted the most times today to make people laugh and it worked…a lot. The less said about that the better really! Charlotte and Joe got married today at their William Cecil Stamford Wedding and I can honestly say that they are two of the most delightful people I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. Joe hated the camera, so I basically lied to him about everything I wanted them to do and as a result we got some awesome photos. If I could take photos of this pair every weekend I would, but Joe would hate it so maybe I’ll wait a month before I turn up at their door…. This pair really were so loverly, and having been together since college, I feel pretty darn lucky to be around while they say their vows and make things full time. I photograph a lot […]
