Hampshire Wedding Photography, Chloe and Matt's pre - wedding Photography at Fleet Pond, Hampshire

Chloe and Matt are getting married a month from today in Bradford on Avon. We met up at Fleet Pond Nature reserve for the pre-wedding shoot.

I think it's fair to say that Chloe was pretty nervous about the being photographed.... I promised her that "by the time we are finished I'm sure you'll be wondering what you were nervous about".  I felt that she relaxed and if she was nervous I certainly couldn't tell and the pictures look lovely!

Laura and Simon are getting married at Wokefield Park at the end of May. As keen photographers themselves they chose to have 2 photographers for the wedding day. I enlisted the help of Abigail White who will be shooting with me on the wedding day and was kind enough to come along to the pre wedding shoot too.

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Selina & David's Pre-wedding shoot at Highfield Park, Heckfield

The weather hasn't been kind to me lately and Selina and David's pre-wedding shoot at Highfield Park in Heckfield was no exception. It was cold with a constant drizzle!

Despite the weather we had a lovely morning, Selina and David are great company and quickly relaxed and got over their initial nerves.

I'm really loooking forward to their wedding at Heckfield in May!

Jasmine & Steve's Wedding Photography, Esseborne Manor, Andover, Hampshire

Jas and Steve were married at Esseborne Manor in Hurstbourne Tarant near Andover, an "invitingly snug" country hotel situated on the North Wessex Down.

I arrived in the morning to Photograph Jas getting ready with her Mum & Bridesmaids. The Champagne and Chocolates were opened and there was a lovely atmosphere which really set the tone for the day.

Just after dinner we were treated to some late afternoon sunshine so we thought we'd make the most of it. Jasmine, Steve and I popped out for a few more pictures in the sunset!

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!

The Clark Family, Silchester Lifestyle Portrait Photography, Hampshire

I spent a gorgeous Saturday morning with the Clark family at the Silchester Roman ruins. I had a fantastic time running around photographing the children. They were so well behaved and seemed to enjoy it as much as I did! 

I took loads of pictures so here's a small preview selection.

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!!!


Collette & Matt's Engagement Shoot, Greywell, Nr Hook, Hampshire

I live 20 minutes from here but didn't even know it existed! So I am very grateful to Collette and Matt for introducing me to such a wonderful location. As you can tell from the wellies it was a little muddy underfoot but that just added to the fun of the morning. I'll definitley be coming back here for family walks, engagement shoots and family portrait photography sessions.

It was a beautiful morning and Collette and Matt were an absolute pleasure to shoot with so I'm really looking forward to their wedding in Hartley Wintney in August..... Thank you!

Here's a few of the shots:


Northbrook Park, Lucy & Dan's Engagement Photography at Fleet Pond

After a few wet and misty shoots the weather has been very kind to me recently, the last 4 weddings and 3 engagement shoots have all been on beautiful spring days. Sunday was no exception and it was a real pleasure and loads of fun to be out shooting with Lucy and Dan at Fleet Pond Nature reserve. They very quickly got into the swing of things, and at times, there was just no stopping them (as you can see from the last pic)!

The wedding is at the end of May at Northbrook Park near Farnham in Surrey. Northbrook is an absolutley gorgeous venue and I'm really excited at the prospect of photographing Lucy and Dan's Wedding day.

They have also very kindly PROMISED to buy me a drink for my Birthday which is the same day as the Wedding ..... Thank you!



Katharine and Andrew's Wedding Photography, Tylney Hall, Rotherwick, Hampshire

Tylney Hall, Rotherwick, Hampshire

The weather is always a cause for concern at weddings, but it shouldn't be. You can't change it so don't worry about it! In fact get the umbrellas and wellies out and emrace it.

The Bride and Groom did exactly that on this snowy February day in Rotherwick, Hampshire. Katharine put on her bridal trainers and Andrew carried her out into the snow for some beautiful shots. For the group shots we used studio lights indoors and took advantage of the gorgeous wood panelling that makes Tylney Hall such a wonderful venue.
