Stonor Park Wedding Photography - 001

Back in May I was very lucky to have the opportunity to photograph at Stonor Park a new wedding venue in Oxfordshire.  I arranged a shoot with MaudiKa based in Oxford and Rachel from Green & Gorgeous.

The beautiful walled gardens at the back of the house are truly the quintessential English country garden, with red brick terraces and steps, borders overflowing with frothy flowers and topiary to boot!  I can just imagine what a beautiful backdrop this would make for drinks and canapes after a wedding in the house or chapel.  It certainly offered many gorgeous backdrops to complimented Maudika’s delicate gowns and Rachel’s wonderfully wild bouquets.

I’m really looking forward to working with Maudika again soon on their new collection, can’t wait to see all the new dresses!  Thank you to Mir and Megan who were brilliant models for us and a huge thank you to Stonor Park for letting us use the grounds.

Monks Barn Wedding -0001

Jayne & Rod Monks Barn Wedding in Hurley was just brilliant! The Barn is a completely blank canvas that you can decorate as you like and was the perfect location for their wedding last Saturday.  They kept the day quite low key and were married in the barn with atmospheric lighting and just close friends and family.  Then they moved outside onto the lawn for a lovely relaxed drinks and canape reception.

Hurley’s right on the river Thames so we headed down to the river for some portraits and made the most of the soft evening light.  All in all it was a fantastically chilled day with the kids running around and playing lawn games, the quintessential Berkshire wedding.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Hicks, here are a few of my favourites from your day 🙂 x

It was super lovely to work with Lulu from Weddings by Lulu Douglas who coordinated the whole day, Rachel from Veiled Productions who captured everything on video (can’t wait to see the preview!), Fullers Flowers for Jayne’s gorgeous bouquet and delicate table decorations, Charlie Hole who played guitar beautifully, Coxtails who provided the bar, Bon Viveur for the delicious food, Oakwood Events for the lighting, The Whole Hog Roast (fairly self explanatory)  and last but not least House of Chords who got everyone on the dance floor and were excellent!!!

Fluorescent Wedding - 001

Last summer I was lucky enough to work as a 2nd photographer for the amazing Sharron Gibson on this absolutely stunning neon wedding.  I started with the boys in the morning who looked very stylish in their bright yellow ties and grey suits, the groom complimenting them perfectly in his bright blue suit.  I got a hint of the theme for the rest of the day from their striking button holes which included orange roses and neon pink feathers, so different and so much fun.

When we arrived at the venue, a manor house set in beautiful English countryside, there were finishing touches to put to the outdoor ceremony space.  The boys did a greet job of adding huge handmade pom poms in neon colours to the gazebo under which the wedding ceremony would take place.  They also decorated the gold chairs with little jars of brightly coloured flowers and ribbons. The overall effect was so pretty, the bright colours popping out of the perfectly manicured garden.

As guests started to arrive the excitement started to grow.  The flower girls arrived in pretty gold dresses with gold lace detail all finished off with gorgeous flower head bands and wands decorated with flowers and feathers.  They were having so much fun running around with all the guests who were adding to the explosion of colour, wearing every colour under the rainbow themselves!

I love an outdoor wedding ceremony but this day was exceptional, the sun shne down adding extra sparkle to bridesmaids mismatched gold sequinned dresses.  The bride entered with her father, she looked stunning in her white sequinned and beaded, figure hugging dress.  As she turned on to the red carpet her veil blow out  behind her, it was all very magical.

The colour and sparkle continued throughout the day with simple little details like champagne served from gold bottles.  Water bottles were handed out, to keep everyone hydrated and served a dual purpose as they had the ‘Order of the day’  tied to them.  The wedding breakfast was held in a bright and airy marquee and the place names were Pantone colour cards.  Everything looked so elegant and stylish!  But that’s enough from me, I couldn’t have enjoyed myself more working with Sharron on this beautifully bright wedding as you might be able to tell from the number of images!!!  Enjoy 🙂

Savill Court Hotel Weddings - 001

What a beautiful, hot, loved filled day Stacey and Max’s Savill Court Hotel wedding was!!! Stacey and Max both got ready in the hotel meaning I got to spend a little time with them both in the morning, something that doesn’t normally happen.  When I left Max to go back and capture Stacey putting her dress on and he said ‘Tell her I love her!’, such a lovely message to be able to pass just before their ceremony.

It was super hot and everyone enjoyed the drinks reception whilst catching a few rays while we snuck off for a few quiet portraits in the beautiful dappled shade.  One of the really lovely things about mid summer weddings though is you get the opportunity to make the most of the late evening light and we weren’t disappointed with a wonderful golden hour.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs New you’re a gorgeous couple and I wish you every happiness together 🙂 x

Festival Wedding - 001

When I’m not photographing my own weddings I love to work with some of my photographer buddies being a 2nd photographer.  When my photography bestie Mia Photography asked me to shoot a festival wedding with her I think my response as ‘Heeeeellllll Yeeeeeah!’

What a day!  I spent the morning with the boys who were putting the finishing touches to all the tents and festival style activities they’d arranged in the field next to their ceremony venue.  They’d put in so much effort into making everything from bunting to a Photobooth van, a message tree, cider tent, music tent, chill out area and all the signs and table numbers.

In true festival style guests were given a wristband and program when they arrived and then settled in for the outdoor ceremony.  After the ceremony there was popcorn and drinks to keep everyone going till they sat down to a picnic style dinner.  This is such a clever idea, a bright coloured box in the middle of the table, cheeses, bread, pie, salads, crisps and more to all be dug out, unwrapped and shared. Followed by a cakes made by friends and family.

It’s hard not to love a couple that are happy to dress up in Badger outfits and dance in the rain and Mia’s lovely couple made the most of every part of the day, not caring if they got a bit muddy.  I mean who cares if you’re muddy when a huge rainbow has come out over the festival you’ve planned.

Here are my favourites from the day and a huge thank you to Mia for letting me share 🙂
