Taplow House | Buckinghamshire Wedding Photographer | Emily & Alan

Just how do you condense an entire day down to a few pictures for a blog!? I've still no idea! When the wedding is as beautiful, sunny, fun and enjoyable as this one it's so hard picking the favourites out to show you all.

Emily and Alan tied the knot at the stunning Taplow House in Buckinghamshire on a day where the weather more than played its part in proceedings and allowed everyone to enjoy their drinks outside in the heat of the sun for one of the first times this year.

We had a super relaxed day all round, Emily and her nearest and dearest began proceedings away from Taplow House before travelling the short distance through the countryside to continue with their hair and makeup in the bridal suit. Alan and his best man were already there and as you can see, doing some last minute alternations to their speeches! 

The ceremony and the rest of the day was simple, elegant and fun all throughout. We even had a drone to play with at one point! And once the music started, the dance floor was filled with family and friends enjoying themselves to the fullest.

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Frensham Great Pond | Surrey Wedding Photography | Sam & Dan Engagement Shoot

I don't often blog engagement shoots but I thought I'd share Sam and Dan's afternoon in the sunshine with you all. We met at Frensham Great Pond, just a stones throw away from where they'll be getting married later in the year at the beautiful Millbridge Court. The weather was fantastic and we had the place pretty much to ourselves so decided to wander along the side of the lake and through the woodland, just a normal Monday afternoon really!

Sam and Dan were such a fun, relaxed and happy couple which made taking their pictures all the easier as I just had to stand back and watch them make each other giggle, the way it should be for people about to get married! I hope you enjoy :)

Kings Hotel Stokenchurch | Buckinghamshire Wedding Photographer | Gabbi & Mark

A New Years Eve wedding means one thing. Its going to be a good night of partying! And so it was. Throw into the mix the beautiful, fun and laughter packed wedding of Gabbi and Mark and it turned out to be a great day as well as a brilliant night.

I first met this couple around two years ago when they were planning their wedding and it was one of the first bookings I ever took so to finally get to photograph their wedding was awesome. The venue, Kings Hotel in Stokenchurch, was a stones throw away from their new home. It was also a five minute walk away from where we had a fab morning with them and their son Archie a few months back for their engagement shoot. 

Sadly we didn't get the weather onside for the day but that didn't stop the fun in the slightest and the ever smiling Gabbi brought sunshine to all the pictures. Not only did their guests get treated to an amazing wedding day and New Years party but there was also the added surprise announcement during the speeches that Gabbi and Mark are expecting their second child! Good luck guys! :)

Here are a few pictures from their day. I hope you enjoy!

Rivervale Barns Wedding | Hampshire Wedding Photographer | Emma-Jane & Jonny

EmJ and Jonnys wedding was a little special for me, not only was it the chance to share in this couples big day but EmJ was actually a bridesmaid at one of my first ever weddings so I was absolutely thrilled when they asked me to cover their wedding day too.

The eagle eyed amongst you might have noticed that EmJ and Elin, her bridesmaid, appear a little further down my blog, just here in fact.

Their big day at Rivervale Barn in Yately, a lovely location of purpose built, stunningly crafted barns with a separate pamper room where we spent the morning preparing and some stunning grounds to walk in.

Once we were ready it was a short dash under the umbrellas to the ceremony where Johnny was waiting with the guests and from then on the day just kept getting better and better. 

Blogging is such a hard thing to do as there are so many pictures I would have loved to include but here's just a small selection from the day for you.

South Farm Wedding | Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer | Cat & Craig

Cat and Craig tied the knot at beautiful South Farm in Royston which boasts a very small working farm and some absolutely stunning gardens. Happily the weather played its part in their day too as the wedding was held outside in the Summer House, where their guests were able to take in the ceremony and the lovely views of the pool and garden setting.

The happy couple are an amazingly relaxed and lovely pair with whom I had a thoroughly good time sharing the day and anyone who wants to know what true love is all about should spend just a little time in their company. They are a great couple!

Whilst Cat outranks Craig in their lives together in the army, Craig more than matched Cat with his dance moves once the Ceilidh band got going and the evening fun got underway. I hope you enjoy!

Cripps Barn | Bibury | Gloucester Wedding Photographer | Clare & Sav

One of the toughest weddings to blog I've ever had, when there are so many fun and fab pictures how do you not post them all!? This is a look into Clare and Sav's big day earlier this summer, they got married not far from the beautiful town of Bibury in the Cotswolds with their playful three year old twin boys and all of their family and friends from all over the world. 

It really was a day of fun and laughter with Clare and Sav proving to be the smiliest and happiest of couples you could imagine. I hope this small snapshot of their day brings a smile or two to your face as well.

Bisham Abbey | Buckinghamshire Wedding Photographer | Rachel & Phil

And here's a peek at a relaxed, beautiful and fun filled wedding. Rachel and Phil got married at the stunning Bisham Abbey this summer and happily the sun came out to play too giving us such a wonderful day all round. 

Bisham Abbey is a truly wonderful location, an old historic building on the banks of the Thames that is perfect for any wedding so it was easy to see why they chose it as the venue for their big day. Combine that with them both being, seemingly anyway, so relaxed on the day itself and how couldn't you end up thoroughly enjoying yourself. Even if I was working!

With thanks to my friend and photography buddy Nav Badel for assisting.

Sorrento Wedding | Amalfi Coast | Sorrento Wedding Photographer | Gemma & Allan |

This was a wedding with a bit of a difference!? Why? Well firstly, it was a little unusual for me... Not only was I photographing the wedding but also taking part in it as a 'bridesmate'. Yep, you read that correctly! 17 years and two beautiful children after they first started dating they eventually tied the knot in front on their close friends and family in the amazing St. Francesco Cloister in Sorrento.

The stunning bride, Gemma, is my best friend and I'd been asked to be a part of her amazing day in Italy, but how could I pass up the opportunity to get a few photographs for her too?

We had some awesome little adventures around the Amalfi coast in the week leading up to the wedding, it's such a magnificent part of the world with some stunning scenery and places to visit. Positano, Pompeii, Vesuvius were just a few of the places that have now been ticked off the bucket list and I can't recommend them highly enough. Friends of Gemma & Allan's quickly became good friends with each other and the more Prosecco that flowed the more laughter and fun came with it. 

I hope you enjoy gazing through these pictures as much as we all enjoyed sharing their big day together. Gemma and Allan, congratulations and much love to you both :) xx

London Wedding Photographer | Asian Wedding Photographer | Wida & Ramesh

Wow! What can I say about this day!? It was most definitely a first for me, a combined Afghan, Russian, traditional English wedding all in one go! Wida & Ramesh tied the knot in Afghanistan a while back but came back to England to celebrate in style with their friends and family over here and I was lucky enough to be asked to spend the day with them to capture the fun. And what a day it was!

Costume changes, colours, traditional dancing, amazing food etc etc the list goes on! Needless to say everyone had an amazingly good time and as the party went on well into the small hours I'm sure everyone went away just a little exhausted from all the fun.

Salomons Estate | Kent Wedding Photographer | Rosina & Richard

When two people you've met as clients end up becoming good friends by the end of your time with them, then you know it's been a good day! Happily, these two guys are the two I'm talking about. Rosie & Richard and their late winter wedding managed to dodge all the rain clouds and produce a splendid day of sunshine both outdoors and in. Salomons Estate provided an amazing backdrop to their big day, with its rolling countryside and grand manor house providing breathtaking views across the countryside. 

And so the party began, from fun and giggles with the girls in the morning to some excellent shape throwing on the dance floor that evening and everything in between. Hopefully a day they and their guests will be smiling about for a long time to come. I know I will.
