Woodlands Park Hotel, Nicola & Adam, Cobham Surrey

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:

Bury Court Wedding Photography, Stephanie & Ben, Farnham, Hampshire

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Bury Court wedding

Stephanie & Ben were married at St James' in Finchampstead before heeding to the beautiful Bury Court Barn near Farnham in Hampshire. Even though we in November the gardens were still full of colour and texture, making a great backdrop to the wedding photographs. The day had a real cosy feel about it, rich colours, lots of candles, cream teas and of course the hot chocolate and Baileys after dinner! A perfect winter wedding.

Here's a preview of Stephanie & Ben's Bury Court wedding images:

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography, Jenny & Paul, Farnham, Surrey

Surrey Wedding Photography, Northbrook-Park-wedding<

Jenny & Paul were married at Northbrook Park near Farnham in Surrey. I'm not going to say anything about the weather, but you'll get a clue to what it was like by how many times umbrellas feature in the photographs during the course of their wedding day.

I caught up with Jenny in the cottages at Northbrook where she was getting ready with her mum and bridesmaid. It was all going so well, but she did end up running a little bit late,  It's the  first time I've ever had to help a bride get dressed, but we got their in the end and Jenny looked gorgeous.... Paul had to wait a few minutes, but I think he was probably expecting that.

The ceremony was full of emotion, both of them were in tears as she arrived. I love that moment when a bride & groom see each other for the 1st time on the wedding day, I let a few tears go behind my camera.

Due to the rain we decided to do all of the family and friends shots indoors, (the Vyne room at Northbrook, with plenty of natural light is great for this) before grabbing the umbrella and heading out into the beautiful but slightly wet grounds for some shots of Jenny & Paul.

Next up was the Tea Ceremony, and Chinese Lion Dance, which was just brilliant. It's the first time I've see one live and was amazed how much expression they manage tp convey.

Surrey Wedding Photography, Jacqui & James, Pennyhill Park, Bagshot

Surrey Wedding Photography, Pennyhill Park Wedding

Jacqui & James were married at their local church, St Andrew's in Cobham before a fabulous reception at Pennyhill Park in Bagshot, Surrey. Traffic on the M25 played it's part, delaying the guest bus arriving to take everybody to Pennyhill Park, but we switched things around a little and didn't loose too much time in the end. Jacqui looked gorgeous in her Ian Stuart dress and we had great fun setting up a few shots to show her veil. Here are some images from the day:

Surrey Wedding Photography, Amanda & Rob, Pembroke Lodge, Richmond

Surrey Wedding Photography, Pembroke Lodge Wedding

I only met Amanda and Rob in person for the first time on Thursday this week. They had managed to organize the whole wedding from Australia, a difficult enough task on it's own but even tougher when you consider they had also organized their first wedding in Australia for last Saturday! Oh and did I mention they did all this in 10 weeks!

As you may have gathered from above Amanda & Rob were actually married on the previous Saturday on a beach in Australia. Then they hopped on a plane and arrived in London on Wednesday. They then had two days to recover from the 25 hour fight, the surprise impromptu stag night, and of course finalize all of the arrangements for their Pembroke Lodge wedding.

Lots of lovely moments during the day: Aurora the flower girl picking up the petals instead of dropping them, the beautiful humanist ceremony, Amanda being tripped on on her grand entrance to the wedding breakfast, Rob's Dad's hilarious speech, Rob's brilliant poem highlighting the differences in Oz, to name but a few!

A brillant day, Thank you!

 

Here's a few of the images from their Pembroke Lodge Weddding day:

Surrey Wedding Photography, Jenny & Paul's pre wedding photography, Little Frensham

Surrey Wedding Photography, northbrook Park Wedding

Jenny & Paul had a meeting at Northbrook last week to go over the final details of their wedding day, so we arranged to meet up afterwards for the pre wedding shoot and meeting at Little Frensham Pond. Just a few miles from Northbrook Park, it's a beautiful location at any time of year but in September the heather is out in all it's glory and the leaves are just beginning to change to their Autumn colours. A beautiful morning and great company, thanks! Really looking forward to the wedding day!

Surrey Wedding Photography, Lucy & Mark, The Lensbury, Teddington

Surrey Wedding Photography, The Lensbury

It's not very often I start a wedding blog talking about trousers, but on this occasion I feel I have to! The father of the bride, Peter, forgot his! We all thought he was kidding when he told us, but no, he really wasn't. I've lent out ties and cufflinks before but never my trousers, but I could see how stressed Peter was getting so decided I'd make the ultimate sacrifice and offer mine!! (Did I mention I take a spare pair to all weddings?).

Anyway his trousers arrived at the church and he was able to change in time for the ceremony, they even got a mention in the sermon!

It was a fabulous day, with the ceremony at Whitton Church followed by a fantastic reception at the Lensbury. Here's a few images from Lucy and Mark's Teddington Wedding:

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography, Nicola & Josh, Farnham, Surrey

Surrey Wedding Photography, Northbrook Park, Farnham

I had an excellent time photographing Nicola and Josh's gorgeous wedding day at Northbrook Park, near Farnham in Surrey, (one of my favourite surrey wedding venues). The weather was a little mixed, and just as we were photographing Nicola and Josh we had a hale storm. It's at those moments I realize how little hair there is on top of my head, those hale stones really hurt! Wasn't long before the sun came out again and the umbrella made for some great shots! I feel I have to say something about the cake too: Josh proposed to Nicola in Paris at the Sacré-Cœur so as well as fitting into the travel theme of the day they had a Sacré-Cœur cake (made by CakeyPiggs). Anyway, here's a few pictures from Nicola and Josh's Northbrook Park wedding

Surrey Newborn Photography, Alfie

Surrey Newborn Photography

I photographed Sarah and Ben's fabulous winter wedding day in December 2011 at Pembroke Lodge, so it was extra special to receive a call from Ben asking if I could fit in photographing their newborn baby boy Alfie "this week". I arrived pretty much at Alfie's feed time so I got started straight away and took a few pictures of him and his mum having his milk and a cuddle. I just love the way he stares right into his mum's eyes! His lunch made him very sleepy so we put his hat on and carried on taking more pictures.

Here's a few images from the session:
