Great Fosters is a beautiful location for any wedding but the day Gary and Sorcha got married it looked even prettier with its dusting of snow. The details at Great Fosters are stunning from the dark wood panelling to the embossed leather ceilings and it was easy to forgot how cold it was outside with the open fires keeping everybody warm

Sorcha looked incredible.  Her dress had a delicate, floaty top layer with embroidered details on the underdress and belt.  She completed her look with a diamanté hair clip and white faux fur shrug.  I met Sorcha and her bridesmaids as they were getting their hair and makeup done (and enjoying a nice chilled bottle of bubbly of course!) before moving to the Queen Anne suite to get into her dress, which might have been a problem had hotel staff not come running after us with the dress, whoops, luckily they were there to check nothing had been left behind.

All the flowers, including the bouquets, ceremony decorations and candelabra table decorations were created by one of Gary & Sorcha’s friends who was working untill ‘silly o’clock’ in the morning to get everything finished.  She did an amazing job as all the rooms looked amazing.

Congratulations guys, it was an amazing day and I wish you all the best in your future together!

“You were brilliant to deal with during the whole process and this is reflected in the shots of the day, which we are absolutely chuffed to pieces with.  We’ve a fabulous record of the day which really helps to magnify our recollection of the day and the book and slideshow are amazing!” Gary & Sorcha

We were so lucky with the weather the day I took these images.  As I was driving down the M4 to meet With Louise, Julian and Ben the sun was coming out from behind the clouds and I can remember thinking ‘Please stay out! Please stay out!’ and it did.  There were enough leaves on the trees still for the images to be filled with colour and the bright sunshine was the icing on the cake.

Burnham Beeches is a local Beech wood, a famous wood actually, they filmed ‘Robinhood – Prince of thievs there!  We saw no men in green tights but there were plenty of dog walkers who seemed quite ammused to see someone walking around in their wedding dress.  It wasn’t exactly the warmest day of the year either but the sun had come out and we thought we’d got lucky with the weather.  It lasted about 15mins and then the heavens opened and we legged it back to the car.  So this is the shortest Rock-the-Dress session ever!!!

Dorotta got married to Greg in Poland in 2007 but bought her dress back with her to England because she couldn’t just leave it behind.  When she went to chose her dress, Greg went with her, he was the only one she trusted to be 100% honest with her.  We decided to take a set of images that leaned more towards fashion rather than relaxed portraits similar to what she had taken on her wedding day.

Dorotta wanted some dramatic jewellery to go with the dress on the day, something slightly less’ wedding’, slightly more ‘catwalk’.  The necklace she is wearing I actually made from a broken lampshade I  was given.  The long strands of beads in delicate greens, golds and browns complimented the backdrop we had chosen perfectly.

I’m new to this blogging malarky so I decided to start with a little introduction to me and my world.  The new website is up and running, so all the hard work has finally paid off.  I’m lucky enough to have a room in the flat I can call ‘The Office’ (it’s not all mine, but I spend the most time in it, so for now I’ve laid claim to it 🙂  I have an eclectic mix of tastes and styles and don’t see why you should have to conform to something specific, I enjoy filling the space around me with things I find interesting and these things can move and change as I do.  Some things hold memories, some are just pretty and some are interesting or inspiring.  I hate the thought of throwing something out just because it’s old.
