Stockbridge Love Shoot

Oh yeah.  LOVE. L.O.V.E LOVE, it’s what the world needs now, its all you need, it is all around us YEAH LOVE!!

Holly is one of my friends, wonderful wedding photographer and all round talented and bodacious being, Reg is her equally gifted man.  We had agreed a while back to do a shoot and we finally got round to it last Saturday (after Evvie’s party!) as a birthday treat for Holly.

I was quite nervous as, although Holly is one of the most kind hearted and lovely people I know, she is….ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER….oh the pressure!!!!

I needn’t have worried about anything at ALL!  Even through the rain we laughed and laughed and laughed and drew pictures an walked through swan poo and got steamy at Stockbridge, thank you Holly and Reg for being excellent and gorgeous and I LOVE YOU.  I REALLY DO.

Time Travellers! Event Photography at The Olde Bell Inn

It may come as a surprise to you that I don’t just ‘do’ Wedding Photography, oh NO my treasures, I love ALL KINDS of photography, yes I do and last weekend was a brilliant chance to stretch my event photography legs.  I was invited to shoot Evvie’s 50th Time Traveller themed fancy dress party at the Olde Bell Inn at Hurley (in the Tithe Barn)

It was SUCH A HOOT!!  Everyone put so much effort into their costumes, I didn’t know what to shoot first or more of!  Evvie looked an absolute picture in her Cleopatra get up,  she had done her make up herself but wanted to mention Natasha Bye, to say thank you for helping with her lashes and more importantly for helping her organise the party!  Thanks Natasha!!!

Before I started with the guests I made sure I got a good old shot of the set up and MY WORD they had gone to TOWN, the decorations were facilitated by the Revival Rooms, by the time I had been around each and every table the party was really starting to get underway and…there was…a MAGICIAN A REAL ACTUAL MAGICIAN stealing everyone’s gold and jewels in the courtyard.

Eventually it was time to move to the main barn for speeches, there were some really nice surprises including a harmonised ‘Happy Birthday’ sung by Evvie and Michael’s 4 beautiful children and a personalised cake by Vicky at Vicky’s Cakes.

Then the carnage began.  Awesome night, brilliant fun and some SERIOUS game faces.  Observe……

A Hylands House wedding…and nothing else matters

The thing I love so much about weddings is all the ‘firsts’ the first time the Father of the bride sees her in her dress, the first time the groom sees his wife to be walking up the aisle, first kisses as husband and wife, first dance, every wedding really is so unique and always a ‘first’ for me.

Suze and Adam’s Hylands House wedding was really special, held at the grand Chelmsford estate, we begin with Suze, her mum and her bridesmaids getting ready in the light and airy bridal suite, everyone was so composed and calm, Suze’s dress was hung ready and waiting, red bridesmaid shoes littered the floor and at the centre of the calm was our beautiful Suze having her make up and hair expertly managed by Jenny, whilst she attended to Suze and her maids I trotted about the venue shooting the details, which included mix CDs as favours for every single guest AND themed tables ranging from Rivendell to Hogwarts!!  And scouting locations for couples shots, on my way I bumped into Adam our groom, stylish, composed, with just a hint of nerves and some early guests greeting one another with smiles and embraces.

Hylands House have their own pianist who was tinkling the ivories whilst I walked about, the sun had decided to make an appearance and the day was getting off to a lovely start!  Soon enough bums were on seats, the flowers had been delivered, Suze was in her dress and COMING DOWN THE STAIRS!!

After her bridesmaids four, Suze walked in, arm in arm with her Father, up the aisle to meet Adam she glided up to Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters, it was so moving and the service was beautiful with a heartfelt reading from Jade and laughs and smiles aplenty,  there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, rings exchanged kisses were planted and thus they were married….YIPPEE!!

With everything being in the same location, the guests had the chance to move about at their leisure as the wedding breakfast was being prepared, an afternoon tea had been laid on, including some DELICIOUS (I know because I stole some) Baklava made by Suze’s mummy’s own fair hand.  Whilst everyone nommed their noms I got to sit on the terrace and enjoy the view, which, might I add was RESPLENDENT.

Wedding breakfast and speeches over and it was time to PARTY!  More guests arrived as the DJ set up to rock the casbah, we managed to sneak a few more couples shots in the waning sunlight before moving onto MY last ‘first’ …. the first dance.  Which I always LOVE!! I sloped off into the sunset, leaving the wedding party throwing all kind of shapes!

Thank you Suze and Adam, for allowing me to be a part of your special day, it was an honour and a pleasure.

Steph and Brendan’s glorious Bushy Park frolic!

A couple of weeks ago Steph and Brendan, who are getting married on the 9th August, met me at one of my favourite places to go; Bushy Park, it was a beautifully sunny day and we had so much fun!  As is the case with a lot of people (myself included!) some can be a little nervous about having their photograph taken, here is the part where I stress the importance of having and engagement shoot!  Seriously though it gives us a chance to get to know each other better and have a little bit of fun…REALLY!! IT’S FUN!!

Thank you Steph and Brendan for being such excellent models and for being so full of life, I am truly hyped about your wedding!!!
