Tithe Barn Wedding Photography - Emma and Ashley
01/07/2016

The summer weddings are coming in now thick and fast. Time for the cool bag and lots of water (and Red Bull). Ashley is a keen bird watcher. When I say keen I mean fantatical. It comes as little surprise to learn that part of the theme of the day centred around birds. The table names...all birds. The cake had an Ashley character with binoculars to his face. Even Emma's Dad's wedding joke was all about birds. (for the record, I did think to myself...

Neil and Mark - Wedding Photography at Brooklands Hotel
01/06/2016

Speed. No, not the Sandra Bullock movie. Real speed. History. Nostalgia. Brooklands. I was so looking forward to this wedding. Having met Neil and Mark last year I could see they had some pretty special ideas for the wedding day. Deciding to host it at The Brooklands Hotel was the first hint. Modern architecture yet entwined with historic interest. The reference to the Solomon Straight etched into the floor is a clear sign of its motorsport...

Janet and Ian - Rhinefield House in Hampshire
01/06/2016

Rhinefield House and my head are still spinning. It was a day that will forever be etched into my mind. For a list of reasons I can hardly comprehend. Janet and Ian weren't new to me. They were guests a few years back at Angela and Rob's wedding on Spitbank Fort. Janet is unforgettable. Simply put, she's the life and spirit of just about everything. The pictures I have of her from the dance floor on fort are priceless. I knew it was going to...

Bron and Kate - Wedding Photography at Tithe Barn
01/06/2016

Oh I do love a Thursday wedding. It's always a treat to have a wedding in the middle (or end) of the week. At a time you weren't expecting. Something a bit different. I don't think it was the Thursday that made it so different. Let's see. You've got family from all over the world visiting. You've got a dog that walks down the aisle. You've got two Brides who walk down different aisles at the same time to meet at the front. Sadly, a guest is...

Jess and James - Gate Street Barn Wedding Photography
01/06/2016

All you need is love. (dum-de-dud-e-dum) Ain't that the truth. If Carlsburg did weddings. Wow. Some days in your career never leave you. This is one of those days. I've ALWAYS said that weddings are not about locations, or seasons, or weather, or gimmicks. It's about one thing. PEOPLE! That's what made this wedding so special. So amazing. So true. I never really know what a day is going to be like when I arrive. I have to get my feet...

Jennie and James' Spring Wedding in Hayes and The Warren
01/05/2016

I love a good recommendation. The really 'good' ones come from someone you don't know through a route you never expected (and ultimately the couple can't recall either). That's karma right there. I'll take all the good karma I can get. I arrived with Jennie and the girls during nap time for Max (Jennie and James' son). I was keen to meet this little guy after seeing how so much around me was influenced by him. He didn't disappoint. Super cute...

Laura and Neil - Floral Magic at Rivervale Barn
01/05/2016

Having only ever been to Rivervale once before (and in November) I had high expectations of what it was going to look like. The gardens at the back are truly sensational, the work of many years of skilled hands. So when I woke to find the forecast was for rain from right after the ceremony I was a little bit gutted. I took the opportunity to arrive a little bit early, before the rain commenced, to take some location images of the barn. This gave...

Gordon and Mandy's Spring Wedding at Hampton Court House
01/04/2016

The more things change the more they stay the same. With what seems like more and more wedding venues opening their doors to the public there are still a few that simply can't be beat. Classics that provide an amazing location, fantastic light (its all about the light people), some seriously great 'quirk' and red walls. Yes, I'm talking all about Hampton Court House. By day its a private school. But on the weekends and holidays its one of the...

Chloe and Michael - Tithe Barn Wedding in April
01/04/2016

The 'North' heads south! There was a point of the day when I really thought to myself that I had been transported to Lancashire. This was the wedding of Chloe and Michael (Mike) at the glorious Tithe Barn in Hampshire. Yes, HAMPSHIRE. Both Chloe and Mike are from Lancashire and moved south a few years ago. Recognising the challenges of organising a wedding 5 hours away they decided to bring the north south. I'm glad they did. The barn and the...
