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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Charlie and Sam - Gate Street Barn Wedding Photography
01/04/2016

Top wedding venue Gate Street Barn is today's host for Charlie and Sam's spring wedding in the Surrey Hills. One of the brilliant advantages to getting ready at the barn is the opportunity to take the dress into the main barn and set it amongst the rustic beams. I didn't miss my opportunity. I was particularly looking forward to this wedding after meeting Charlie's parents at the open day back in January. If I said they are a bit 'nuts' they...

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...

Emma and Robert - Haslemere and Ramster Hall Wedding Photography
01/03/2016

Near the ides of March, in a town and garden in Surrey. Sounds dramatic. It was. Dramatic and happy and lively and fun. All those in one. This is the wedding of Emma and Robert at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Haslemere and a reception afterwards at Ramster Hall near Chiddingfold. I first joined Emma at Bel and The Dragon in Churt. It was a hive of activity with the Bride as well as the Bridesmaids all getting ready in the same room. ...
