I loved everything about Steph & Martin’s brightly coloured wedding day! All that colour, what’s not to love!!! I first met Steph and Martin for their engagement session and could tell straightaway that they were planning a super, fun filled day. Their whole day simply oozed summer and it was impossible not to get sucked right into the space hopping, Pimms sipping joyfulness of it all.
Steph wore a stunning maxi wedding dress, embellished with embroidered lace, from Phase Eight and Martin looks super suave in his bright blue Austin Reed suit. The bridesmaids complimented them perfectly in their multicoloured dresses from ‘For Her and for Him‘. The little brightly coloured details continued throughout the day from Stephs totally gorgeous bouquet to the cute little hearts cut from tissue paper, the coloured lanterns to the handmade bunting, the big red bus to the oh so delicious naked wedding cake.
Deans Court in Wimborne is such a beautiful wedding venue and Steph & Martin made great use of the grounds by having their drinks reception out the front of the house then moved round the back for more drinks, the odd hop on a space hopper and some amazing magic tricks by Max Curd, Magician. A marquee at the end of the garden was festooned with fairy lights, coloured lanterns and bunting for the wedding breakfast and was also set up for dancing late into the night, and there was plenty of dancing!!!
This was a happy, happy day from start to finish and I loved photographing every minute of it. Thank you Steph & Martin for giving me the opportunity to photograph your amazing day x
What an AMAZING day!!!!! Sara and Phil are off on honeymoon tomorrow and I wanted them to see some photos before they leave so here are a quick selection of my favs before I get stuck into editing the full set.
A super chilled morning with the girls was followed by a lovely ceremony at Lane End Church and then on to the reception at Greenlands just outside Henley. The icing on the cake, the well accessorised dancing and fireworks set to Starwars music, flipping SUPERB!!!!
Amy & Isaac’s tea party wedding was just lovely. I knew as soon as I met them that we’d get on like a house on fire and after spending a lovely afternoon with them in London for their engagement session, I couldn’t wait for their wedding day.
They planned a family and friends oriented day with a ceremony at their church. Friends provided the music and Isaac’s grandfather actually conducted their ceremony, it was really quite special, he was such a real character!
Their passion for retro style, music and lifestyle really set the theme for the day. Amy looked amazing in her 50s style dress from Inspiration Bridal with lots of little red highlights including her petticoat and AMAZING glittery shoes!! Isaac looked just as great in his blue DJ with pocket square to match the bridesmaids dresses (from Lindy Bop), (eye catching :-)) stripy socks and a bow tie as the cherry on top.
After the ceremony everyone tucked into champagne and candy floss before heading off to Waddesdon Village Hall for a tea party style wedding breakfast. All the food was made by family and friends and Amy even made all the Macarons herself, I was so impressed, they looked perfect (tasted pretty good too!!) Even the wine was home made thanks Amy’s Aunt and Uncle. In fact there wasn’t much they hadn’t made or had help making, it’s so special when everyone chips in and helps to make it an even more memorable day!
After tear jerking speeches from Amy’s Mum, an incredible song from her sister and two singing best mequite honestly the best man speech I’ve seen yet!) there was nothing left but to dance the night away. And dance the night away is exactly what they did to Bill Ding and the Skyscrapers with so much enthusiasm I’m surprised there weren’t a few broken bones and black eyes.
I need to say a huge thank you to Shanice who second shot her first wedding with me and did a fantastic job (the black and white shot of Amy & Isaac’s first kiss with grandad hiding his eyes, is her’s, perfect timing and beautifully captured!!) and another huge thank you to Amy & Isaac for booking me, I had the most amazing day, loved every minute of it. I hope you all enjoy looking through some of my favourite images from their day as much as I did photographing it!!!

Last September I just couldn’t resist organising a little shoot to make the most of all the gorgeous Dahlia’s still flourishing at Green & Gorgeous, florist & flower growers based in Oxfordshire. I was given a few saris’ by a friend years ago and when I realised the colours perfectly matched the bright colours of the Dahlia’s the ‘Indian Summer Wedding’ theme was born. In all honesty everything was a little rushed but I was dead chuffed with the results and think this styling would work so well in any barn setting as well as somewhere a little grander.
Thank you Katia for modeling, I know it took you out of your comfort zone and it was freezing but you were a total star!! We played with a few different ideas that would work for brides and bridesmaids alike and I loved the contrast between the stunning brights and the subtle creams, they work surprisingly well together.
The table styling was based around Rachel’s (Green & Gorgeous) collection of pewter vessels (collected from charity shops and Ebay) and little coloured and gold embellished tea light holders. Moroccan style lanterns were added for extra light, these are easily found in home stores at the moment. I love how the little vases of a few stems and the fruit (apples and chilli peppers) add the lavish feeling of the overall look.
Thank you to Rachel for the arrangements and Ash for helping me string saris’ from the barn ceiling (no easy feat!). I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed shooting it. 🙂
