Rob & KateMoonraker Hotel | Bradford on Avon

I was so excited for Rob & Kate’s big day. We had a really fun time on their engagement shoot and I knew their wedding was going to be a good’un.
They got married 3 days before Christmas, so everywhere was feeling beautifully and subtly Christmassy and the crisp winter sunshine hugely added to the atmosphere.
The Moonraker Hotel is stunning, the perfect cosy little place that is full of character and real ‘homeliness’. The ceremony was held in front of a roaring fire, with a Christmas tree in the back and candle light all around – feeling festive yet?

The rest of the day included a pub quiz at dinner, sparkler fun and even a Ceilidh band who were absolutely brilliant and got everyone up and boogieing which made for some very funny and happy photos!

A truly wonderful day and the perfect winter wedding.

ChristmasIn Bath & Berkshire

So as I may have expressed in my ‘Meet Me’ section, I love Christmas. I love everything about it and the time of year – the frosty mornings, the films, the decorations and sparkly lights, the smells, the food, the quality family time… I think because also, the magic resonates so strongly with me and it takes me back to my childhood and all those feelings I felt of pure happiness.

I spent my Christmas break with all my wonderful family and had some beautiful days out with friends. I have to say I’m a little sad it’s over, but I do love that fresh new start feeling when the New Year arrives, and I now have lots of exciting plans and goals for 2017 to look forward to!

Matteo & KiraSurprise proposal | Prior Park, Bath

​Last Wednesday I received an email from Matteo explaining his plans to propose to his girlfriend that weekend at Prior Park. I cannot explain how excited I was even just to be asked to photograph this, so I made sure I could squeeze it in on the Sunday.
I ran in as soon as the gates opened and headed straight down to the bridge to find the best spot to hide. Turns out there wasn’t really a way of being completely hidden, so instead I opted for acting as the ‘person just chilling out by themselves in the park…. first thing Sunday morning…. in the rain…’
She wouldn’t suspect anything, right?

I kept in touch with Matteo to find out where they were and what they were wearing etc, not that it would be hard to spot them as luckily, we were pretty much the only people there!
As soon as they emerged from the trees, I was just struck with nerves and adrenalin just waiting for the moment he got down on one knee and trying to choose my timing perfectly so that I didn’t get my camera out too soon.
As soon as Matteo had proposed, the rain just absolutely poured and it was just so atmospheric and so cosy – I love the rain anyway so I was in my element, not to mention the fact that I also got to try out my new umbrella!

What a perfect, perfect moment between such a lovely couple. I am so privileged that I got to be a part of it.
I am so excited at the thought of photographing future proposals… If you’re planning one yourself, you know where to find me!

Marcus & AnouskaArnos Vale & Yurt Lush | Bristol

This had to be one of the most relaxed and cool weddings ever… I mean a bride and groom travelling on a public bus to get to their reception venue, that’s pretty cool. Marcus and Anouska were the true definition of Rock’n’Roll and their choice of venue fitted their style perfectly. It was a real fun and laid back day with really great people and lots of sunshine!

Here are a few of my favourite from their gorgeous day.

Carla & ArturoOld Council House & Hotel Du Vin | Bristol

Carla & Arturo contacted me a couple of months before their wedding and I am so glad I was free to do it – what a beautiful couple and wedding!
It was the typically wonderful small wedding – less than 30 guests. Their ceremony was held in the Old Council House – I love this part of Bristol, all the buildings are just stunning, so we had lots to play with in terms of backgrounds. After a little walk around finding some spots for their couples photos we headed off to Hotel Du Vin for their reception. I don’t think you could get much more of a snuggly, cosy venue.
Thoroughly enjoyed this day – thank you so much to these guys for having me along and letting me capture it for them!

Luke & AbiLarmer Tree Gardens | Salisbury

Back in May, I had this wonderful day second shooting for the lovely Naomi of Lush Imaging. Abi & Luke tied the knot at Larmer Tree Gardens near Salisbury. I personally had never heard of this venue, but my gosh what an amazing place and the best part had to be the fact that there were peacocks everywhere! The day truly was beautiful… The ceremony took place in the Temple which sits on the lawn with a sweet group of chairs sat in the sun. There were traditional lawn games scattered here and there, as well as a couple of other unique buildings dotted around the venue. It’s all so random, but fits so well!
Here’s a quick little selection of some of the best bits of the day.
