Oxfordshire wedding photography, Luxters Barn wedding photography

Bethany and Simon were married at The Holy Trinity Church in Henley with the reception afterwards at the lovely Old Luxters Barn in Hambleden near Henley, Oxfordshire. The weather wasn't kind to us, (what is it about August?) and the umbrellas were in use again. Fortunately, after a morning downpour everything brightened up and by the time we got to Luxters Barn the sun was shining.

Surrey Wedding Photography, Bea & John's Wedding Day, Farnham, Surrey

Farnham wedding photographer

John & Bea were married at the beautiful St Laurence's Church in Seale, Surrey followed by a fabulous reception at John's Parents home.

When I first met John and Bea there were so much to do with the gardens and house that they were quite concerned that it may not all be ready in time for the wedding. They needn't have worried. The gardens were stunning! All the planning and effort from John, Bea, family and friends resulted in an explosion of color and texture. The marquee was dressed with a black and white theme and looked fantastic.

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Hayley & Peter's pre wedding shoot, Pangbourne 

I met up with Hayley and Peter a couple of weeks ago on a cold and damp Thursday morning in Pangbourne. We started with a coffee and went through the details of their wedding day before walking down the banks of the Thames for a few pictures. Despite the weather and the mud we had a great time, Peter even managed a gallant moment piggy-backing Hayley over the mud.

I'm really looking forward to the wedding in March in Shiplake!

Karen & Michael's Wedding Photography, Richmond Registry Office, Surrey

One of the many things I love about being a Wedding Photographer is how individual and personal every wedding is! A couple of weeks ago I photographed a Wedding with over 200 guests, today it was 7.

It was Michael's Dad's 80th Birthday so they had decided to combine the birthday celebrations with getting married!

They arrived in Thomas the Vintage Taxi  for the ceremony at Richmond Registry office, before spending the afternoon having lunch and going to watch The Grufffalo. I can't think of many better ways to spend an afternoon!

Bryony & Dan's Wedding Photography, Hackney Town Hall, Dulwich Picture Gallery, London

I had the great pleasure of photographing Bryony and Dan's Wedding on Saturday. The atmosphere at the house when I arrived to photograph the preparations was lovely. Bryony was with two of her bridesmaids Jen and Alex, who not only were helping her getting ready but had prepared all of the Bouquets, Buttonholes and rose petal confetti cones! The Bouquets not only looked fantastic but with the sage leaves they'd used, the scent was absolutely gorgeous too.

The wedding ceremony was held Hackney Town Hall, the Registra was brilliant and let me take as many pictures as I wanted (thank you!). Then all aboard a Wedding Routemaster London Bus to the Dulwich Picture Gallery for the reception, with lots of ice cold champagne en route!

Janette & Matt, Engagement Photography at Horniman Museum Gardens in Dulwich, London 

Janette and Matt are getting married in October at Oak Farm, Shirley in Surrey so we met up on Thursday evening for the pre wedding shoot at The Horniman Museum Gardens in Dulwich, London. I've not photographed here before but would love to again, it's a beautiful venue and the weather was gorgeous.

Strangely, Dulwich has featured heavily in my schedule recently, on top of Janette and Matt's shoot I photographed  Sam and Russ's (from Dulwich) wedding in Marlborough on Tuesday and I'm shooting a wedding on Saturday at the Dulwich Picture Gallery... Funny how things work out!

Julia & Steve's Wedding Photography, St Michael's Church, Bray and Oakley Court, Windsor, Berkshire

I had the great pleasure of Photographing Julia and Steve's Wedding Day at St Michael's Church in Bray and The Oakley Court Hotel in Windsor.

Julia was christened at St Michael's so the church was the perfect location for the wedding. The Oakley Court, just 5 minutes from the church, with it's Thameside location and Gothic styling is an absolutely stunning venue was chosen for the reception.

There were some lovely touches and moments: such as the Landau from Haydn Webb Carriages which took Julia to the church and was a compete surprise for Steve; all of the groomsmen in their Top Hats, Tails and canes; Julia's Dad delivered an emotional and moving speech, even I was getting tearful; Julia and Steve had rehearsed a waltz for the first dance.  Altogether it was a fantastic day!
