Ewelina and Leigh's Wedding Photography, Donnington Valley Hotel, Douai Abbey, Newbury

Ewelina and Leigh were married at Douai Abbey in Woolhampton with the reception at The Donnington Valley Hotel near Newbury. My day started relatively early at Leigh's parents, where Ewelina and her bridesmaids were getting ready for the 11:00am ceremony at Douai Abbey. The atmosphere at the house was lovely and Ewelina looked absolutely beautiful!

Jo & Vin's Wedding Photography, The Vyne, Bramley, Hampshire

Jo and Vin were married at the Vyne in Sherborne St John, a stunning wedding location which also happens to be my most local venue!

I started shooting the bridal preparations at Jo's Mum's. There was a lovely atmosphere, Jo was so excited, especially when she opened her present from Vin. I really don't think she stopped smiling all day!

Hannah & Jonny's Wedding Photography, Rivervale Barn, Yateley, The Church of St James, Bramley, Hampshire

I had a fantastic day photographing Hannah and Jonny's wedding day. For me the day started at Hannah's parents house photographing Hannah, her parents and bridesmaids all getting ready. The atmosphere was lovely and I was made to feel very welcome but I have to confess to being a little nervous, as Hannah's Dad is a great photographer and the house is full of his stunning landscape images!

There were lots of lovely touches that made the day very personel: Hannah had made all of the bridesmaids facinators and her tiara herself, wedding day present from Jonny,  her Mum had made the cake, and a friend had made the table plans, place names etc...

The ceremony was at the Church of St James in Bramley, Hants with the reception at Rivervale Barn in Yateley. It has to be said that the weather wasn't great, the rain started as we left the church and I don't think it stopped for the rest of the day. With purple wellies and white brollies Hannah and Jonny took it all in thier stride and made the most of it! Whilst it wasn't practical to wander too far, Rivervale has some lovely gardens and we carried on regardless!

Jo & Vin's Engagement Photography at Fleet Pond Nature Reserve, Fleet, Hampshire

Jo & Vin  are getting married in September at The Vyne, Sherborne St John near Bramley in Hampshire. The Vyne is a gorgeous National Trust 16th Century Country House set in the Hampshire countryside and is a stunning wedding venue.

We decided on Fleet Pond Nature reserve for the pre-wedding shoot, and depite the frequent, very loud fly-overs from Farnborough Air Show, we had a lovely morning strolling through the woods, chatting and taking pictures. We even had an "Extra" joining in for some of the shots in the stream!

Susanne and Mick's Pre Wedding Photography, Silchester, Hampshire

Susanne and Mick are getting married on the weekend at the Regency Park Hotel in Thatcham. We me up on a lovely summers evening for the pre wedding shoot at Pamber Forest and combined it with a trip to the Calleva Arms in Silchester for the Wedding planning meeting. Susanne and Mick are very relaxed and a pleasure to photograph so I'm looking forward to their wedding on the weekend.

See you Saturday!!!


Liz & Dave's Wedding Photography, Lains Barn, Wantage, Oxfordshire

Having done an engagement shoot for Liz and David and heard all about their wedding plans, I was really looking forward to their wedding day at Lains Barn near Wantage. I've been wedding guest here myself a few years ago so knew what a fantastic wedding venue Lains Barn is.

The courtyard lawn is brilliant for a summer wedding, it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere with the guests enjoying the afernoon sunshine, BBQ, music, champagne and lawn games, perfect for lots of documentary style images!

I've also got to mention Charley's Rocky Road Wedding Cake..... WOW, Delicous!

Congratulations and thank you for a wonderful day.
