Beaumont House Wedding, Rebecca & Stuart, Old Windsor, Berkshire

Beaumont House Wedding Photography, Old Windsor, Berkshire

I don't photograph weddings at the same venues that often in a year so it was quite unusual to photograph two in a row at The Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor.  The Beaumont is such a fantastic wedding venue that this certainly wasn't a problem.

Becky and Stu were actually married at St Anne's in Chertsey before heading to the White House at The Beaumont for the reception. Becky looked lovely, and the all the reds of the flowers and dresses looked gorgeous! A great time was had by all, it was brilliant day despite finding out the secret about what's under a Scotman's kilt! The best man took a fall with a dramatic landing, he was okay but the secret was out! Fortunately I wasn't fast enough to catch all of the "details" on camera.

Beaumont House Wedding, Laura & Chris, Old Windsor, Berkshire

Beaumont House Wedding Photography, Old Windsor, Berkshire

Laura & Chris were married at All Saints Church in Windsor before their fabulous reception at the Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor. As you can see for their pix horses played a big part in the day. Laura's mum had a bit of a surprise up her sleeve. She had arranged for a horse drawn carriage to take Laura and her dad to the church and then onto Beaumont House after the ceremony where Laura's own horse Bracken was waiting for her.

Warbrook House Wedding, Holly and Steve, Eversley, Hampshire

The Forbury Hotel Wedding Photography, Reading, Berkshire

The problem I had with Holly and Steve at the pre-wedding shoot is that I couldn't stop them smiling and laughing, so I knew that thier wedding at Warbrook House in Eversley, Hampshire was going to be great fun and I was right. By mid afternoon even my cheeks were aching from smiling too much! I hope you get a sense of this from the photographs.

The Newbury Manor Hotel, Rachel & Tom's wedding photography, Newbury, Berkshire

Newbury Manor Hotel Wedding Photography, Newbury, Berkshire

I met Rachel & Tom a few years ago when Tom was an usher at Alex & Natalie's wedding which I was lucky enough to photograph 4 years and 11 months ago! Alex returned the favour so it was great to catch up with them again.

The ceremony took place at St Mary's in Burghfield, Rachel's family's church, before heading to The Newbury Manor Hotel for the wedding breakfast. Newbury Manor is a fabulous setting for a wedding, it was lovely with everybody chatting and the children playing out on the lawn in the sunshine.

Here's a few of the photographs from Rachel & Tom's Newbury Manor wedding:

Woodlands Park Hotel Wedding, Cobham, Surrey

I had a wonderful day photographing Nicola and Adam's Woodlands Park Hotel wedding in Cobham, Surrey.   Just in case you were wondering what all the kissing is about in the shots below, some of Nicola's family are Danish and they made sure that a few Danish wedding customs played a part in the wedding breakfast.

Congratulations and thank you for a fabulous day! Here's a small selection of photographs of Nicola and Adam's Woodland Park Hotel wedding day:

Kelly & Rod were married at Our Lady St Annes church in Caversham with a little detour to a very busy Forbury Gardens before their intimate reception at the beautiful Forbury Hotel in Reading town centre.

Family Photography, Jamie, Joanna & Eloise

Basingstoke baby photography, hampshire

Bit of a doggy theme going on today, 2 Dobermans in one day? 

I had a lovely morning photographing Jamie and Joanna with their gorgeous little girl Eloise, we were lucky enough to have some lovely weather so were able to take advantage of their beautiful garden for a few shots. Eloise got a little tried though and had to have a little nap half way through the shoot which gave me a chance to take a couple of shots with Mum & Dad on their own before she returned all happy and refreshed for a few more pix!

Please take a few minutes to have a look at the pictures from our family photography session:

Basingstoke Dog Photography, Sephy & Sully

Dog photography, Hampshire

My very first doggy portrait session, okay so few dogs have featured in family lifestyle, studio shoots and even a wedding or two, over the years but this is the first time that it was "all about the dogs".

So meet Sully the 14 week old Bull Mastif puppy, who'd I'd guess by the size of his massive paws is going to get a lot bigger and Sephie the 5 year old Doberman. Both very well behaved and an absolute pleasure to photograph.

Hopefully the 1st of many?:

The Elvetham Hotel wedding photography, Hampshire

I love winter weddings, I love The Elvetham hotel and Ele & Damien are a fabulous couple who had loads of good stuff planned.  So it's fair to say that I was really excited about shooting their wedding day!

I wasn't disappointed, it was a brilliant day, although it just seemed to go so fast. I couldn't quite believe it when the fireworks started and I realized it was 10:00.

Hampshire Family Photography, Cath, Frazer & Family, Mortimer

Hampshire Family Photography, Mortimer

I love doing lifestyle family shoots  and photographing Cath, Frazer and their fabulous kids reminded me why. Whilst they're playing it really lets their personalities shine through. There are no forced smiles here, well okay, maybe a couple:)  and I got the impression the whole family enjoyed running around nearly as much as I did (Cath?). 

Here's a selection of images from our Hampshire lifestyle family photography shoot.

Feathers & Fur, Claire & Jon portraits, Berkshire

Berkshire Family Photography, Feathers and Fur

I had the very great pleasue of spending a morning with Jon and Claire at Feathers & Fur near Twyford. I don't know very much (well I didn't) about birds of prey but they are on the list of things that I get really excited about... To the extent that to avoid accidents I really have to control myself when I see one whilst driving!

So when Jon phoned to invite me along to do pictures I jumped at the the chance. I wasn't disappointed, the birds were fantastic and we had a fabulous morning. If you get a chance to go, go! Sadie of Feathers and Fur is so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate about the birds, she was brilliant and we had great fun learning loads about the birds and their characteristics.

Thank you!

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Rivervale Barn WeddingRivervale Barn Wedding, Victoria & David, Yateley, Hampshire

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Rivervale Barn Wedding

Rivervale Barn always looks fabulous but Victoria and David really pulled out all the stops with their children’s book and teal themed wedding day. It never ceases to amaze me how creative couples (and of course their families ) are! For example all that bunting was handmade, as were the rings, the cake, the signing board and look at all the book page details!
Rivervale and probably the whole of Yateley certainly knew when David arrived. He led a convoy of sportscars in his TVR. Wow, the noise was just immense!

Congratulations and thank you for a brilliant day!

Here’s a selection of images from their Rivervale barn wedding day:
