‘A family session in Colorado?!’ you’re thinking. ‘But you’re from the UK!’ you’re thinking. Well yes, you’d be correct! You can imagine how excited I was not just to visit a state I’ve always wanted to go to, but to also be able to photograph one of my friend’s oldest friends, Maritta, and her beautiful family down at Cherry Creek in Colorado!Read More
Hayley and Sam were absolute stars when it came to doing their pre wedding session on a baking hot Bank Holiday Monday in the middle of an extremely busy beach! But these two shy lovebirds didn’t let that bother them, and we had a whale of a time frolicking down on Cudmore Grove’s beach front amongst passers-by definitely wondering what we were doing, and definitely eyeing up Hayley’s beautiful (not to mention on-brand) golden gown! (Ladies, it’s from New Look if you’re wondering - I just had to ask!)Read More
Just a month before the two planned to wed, an email popped into my inbox from the loveliest couple, David and Kim. The couple had been together for over thirty years and were finally planning to tie the knot in a super intimate ceremony, with just Kim’s daughter and her mum present, although there was going to be a big party a few months down the line with all of their friends who would then be aware of their wedding!
Noted in their email as ‘what will probably be the speediest wedding ever’ although quite correct, as they were in and out of the ceremony within 20 minutes, it was such a wonderful way to end 2018 on a high and definitely a lovely thing to witness.Read More
It's always lovely when you get to photograph your clients twice, for two really important moments in their lives... Tiffany and Joe gave me both of those opportunities, and I'm so grateful. They first booked me last spring to photograph their little girl's newborn photos, which I absolutely loved doing (as it turned out, they're also a cat-crazy couple which meant the cats got involved in their shoot too - no complaints from me!) and they adored their photos so much, that they gave me the privilege of coming back to photograph their wedding photos just last month!Read More
When I first met Tiffany and Joe, it was to photograph their newborn baby girl's photographs, but I never could've imagined a year and a half later I would be photographing their beautiful DIY wedding at Colchester Castle!Read More
So, here's a funny story... I used to actually go to school with Emily-May, who booked this family session with me to celebrate her mum's birthday... But I hadn't seen Emily in almost ten years! It was so surreal to catch up with her and meet the rest of her family, and what a fun session this was!
I decided to meet up with them to have a chat over a hot chocolate (no surprises there!) at one of my favourite little cafés, Sip and Tuck. Having ordered my coconut milk hot chocolate, I pondered around the corner to find them sat there awaiting me. Within a few moments and hello's, a waitress peered round and asked if I wanted the vegan hot chocolate, so I said yes! Off she went again, which prompted 'are you vegan too?!' from Georgie and Amalaketu. 'Yes I am!' I said. Turns out they were too, and they'd been looking for vegan wedding suppliers because they too, are vegan! If that's not fate - I don't know what is!Read More
When I met up with Rhiannon and Will on Christmas Eve of last year, they told me of their non-traditional, vintage-twist low-key wedding plans. These two were not about having a big, over the top wedding, and focused more on having a small, intimate get together with family and friends, which I absolutely adore in a wedding. I was most intrigued by their laid back nature, highlighted by their plans to get ready together, to walk to the ceremony location together, down the aisle together, and of course leave as husband and wife. Their laidback natures even rubbed off onto me, as I was asked quite a few times if I was friends of theirs. Although not quite, I always feel like I ultimately end up becoming friends with my couples!Read More
Having had a traditional Hindu blessing in Bali, a place Amanda considers her spiritual home, their formal wedding in the UK was to be a relatively intimate affair, in the candle-lit Hedingham Castle. They celebrated with 40 of their closest friends and family, and many of the guests had travelled far and wide for the celebrations! All of the ladies wore white, in-keeping with the beautiful Amanda - they all looked divine!
