Stanhill Court Wedding Photography - Lizzie and Sam

It was such an honour to be a part of Lizzie and Sam's day which for me started at Lizzie's parents house in Reigate. This is where Lizzie, her mum and bridesmaids were all getting ready. A very calm morning on what was to be a beautiful day. Meanwhile Sam was with the rest of the groomsmen taking in the morning sunshine in Betchworth where the church service was to be held.

St Micheals Church aptly situated in Church Street, Betchworth is a lovely picturesque church. Entering through the fantastic lych gate it was a short walk in the blazing sun for Lizzie when she was escorted round to the entrance by her father. There was an amazing rendition by the betchworth choir before, during and after the service which was a delight to hear. After the service all the guests waited for Lizzie and Sam who made a quick run through a tunnel of confetti to get to the Lych gate before canapés were served.

Stanhill Court Hotel weddings

I love photographing weddings at Stanhill Court Hotel. It's such a great location for a photographer. Lots of outside space, some real character inside the actual hotel and a conservatory with just to die for light. It really is an amazing victorian house which was built back in 1881 as a family dwelling but now a perfect place for a weekend away or a wedding. It's perfectly placed in Surrey to get to from all across the region. There was so much to do for Sam and Lizzie's guests. Croquet on the lawn, tasty canapé's being served, a steel band playing. It didn't then feel too long till everyone entered the conservatory and were treated to another surprise choir performance and this time our groom joined in. What a way to get the meal going! These guys know how to party and the evening was so much fun, the dance floor always heaving and lots of laughs being had. A pleasure to photograph. Thanks to Karolina for excellent assisting.

Sparkford Hall Wedding Photography - Ale and Amy

 Alejandro and Amy's wedding took place at the amazing Sparkford Hall. It was a great honour to photograph on what was a fun packed wedding on a glorious summer day.

Sparkford Hall Weddings

What can I say about Sparkford Hall. Well this luxury Georgian mansion set in 23 acres of Somerset countryside is the perfect retreat for a summer wedding. Gorgeous grounds with atmospheric lighting, impeccable stylish interiors, a marquee for your sit down meal and glamping option for your guests on site. Oh and did I mention it has its's own underground nightclub.

I arrived at Alejandro and Amy's wedding to be greeted by one of the most relaxed settings you can imagine. The whole weekend was a celebration with the entire wedding party mingling with one another. Amy and her bridesmaids shared so many laughs whilst getting ready. Amy looked simply divine in her dress from Krystle Brides. At the same time Alejandro and the boys were playing it super cool at the other end of the house.

It wasn't long before Amy was escorted by her father down the aisle for a lovely ceremony in a wonderfully decorated room in the house.

The party was now in full swing and wih everyone able to relax outside in the sunshine taking in the amazing canapé's and drinking away. A hearty meat eaters delight was served outside in the adjacent marquee before Alejandro took charge with some vodka toasts. No doubt this helped the enthusiastic dancers of the party to hit that floor and bust out the moves.
A great wedding all round! Thanks to Alejandro and Amy for inviting me to be a part of an amazing day.

Farnham House Hotel Wedding Photography - James and Lucy

I was thrilled to be asked to photograph James and Lucy's wedding celebrations at Farnham House Hotel as its a fabulous venue that I'd not photographed at before. I was greeted to a lovely sunny autumn day as I arrived at the hotel which set the tone for a fantastic day ahead.

Farnham House hotel weddings

Farnham House Hotel is a gorgeous hotel set in five acres of beautiful grounds close to Farnham town centre in the surrey countryside. The grounds at Farnham House are picturesque especially in the autumn sunshine which we were able to utilise later in the day. The day itself started with Lucy and her bridesmaids preparing in one of the rooms of the hotel. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. James soon arrived with his entourage and it wasn't long before the guests were seated awaiting our beautiful bride.

After the ceremony we all gathered outside for drinks and to greet James and Lucy with a confetti shower! Although it had clouded over by this time it was still warm for the time of year so it was great that everyone could socialise outside the hotel. I whisked James and Lucy off for a few moments before everyone was treated to some delicious food and some cracking speeches with James stealing the show with a funny heartfelt speech. There were shout-outs to all over the world as James and Lucy had guests from all four corners of the world.

After saying they had nothing special planned first dance wise I was expecting a slow shuffle around but James whisked Lucy up and covered most of the dance floor before being joined by the rest of the wedding party.Thanks to Ran Wilcox for assisting and congratulations to James and Lucy, it was a pleasure to be a part of your celebrations.

Rivervale Barn Wedding Photography

Rivervale Barn Wedding Photographer - Oli and Leyla

Having already photographed a wedding at Rivervale Barn I knew how gorgeous the barn is for wedding photography so was very much looking forward to working there again.

Rivervale Barn Weddings

Rivervale Barn is situated just in the Hampshire borders in Yateley and is a very popular wedding venue in the region and its not hard to see why. The staff at Rivervale are absolutely first class and the food served by Galloping Gourmet is out of this world. There is a fantastic cottage at Rivervale Barn where you can prepare and stay after the wedding and is where I found Leyla and her bridesmaids in the morning. At Rivervale beauty at the other side of the courtyard there is a separate make up studio. This really is everything in one place!

Oli and the boys were getting ready at a nearby hotel and arrived at the barn in plenty of time to welcome all the guests and it wasn't long till everyone was seated and awaiting the entrance of the stunning bride. It was a very heartfelt and moving ceremony and was a joy to photograph.

Natural and Relaxed Wedding Photography

A lot of the day I'm there to document the story of the wedding, to blend in with the guests allowing you to just relax and enjoy the day and I do the rest. This was no exception at Oli and Leyla's day and there was so much to document especially when you throw in magicians, live music, games and a sparkler exit in the evening! As usual at Rivervale Barn I took advantage of  the stunning gardens which didn't disappoint as I took Oli and Leyla for a walk around. Something I thought I might not have the chance to do after the terrible weather the night before.

Huge thank you  Oli and Lelya for making me feel like one of the guests at your wedding. You guys were so friendly and make a great couple, it was a pleasure to document your day. I can't wait for the next time I'm photographing at the barn again. It can't come soon enough! Thanks also to Ran Wilcox for assisting on the day.

Windsor Guildhall Wedding Photography - Mark and Tamsin

I was thrilled when Mark and Tamsin invited me to be part of their special wedding day. I take every opportunity I can to photograph at the fantastic Windsor Guildhall, this was a day I was really looking forward to.

Windsor Guildhall Weddings

Windsor Guildhall is a very popular wedding venue that has held host to a number of royal and celebrity weddings. The building was completed in 1687 by Sir Christopher Wren and is situated on the high street just a stones throw from Windsor Castle itself. I fact the magnificent chandeliers inside this wonderful building were officially lent by the queen herself.

The english weather lived up-to its reputation but couldn't put a dampener on this wedding. I met with Mark at the Guildhall and it wasn't long before he was joined by the rest of the guests and led inside to await the arrival of Tamsin who was busy preparing at a hotel a stones throw from the Guildhall. Tamsin was looking absolutely stunning. A very heartwarming and special ceremony then took place. I managed to get a couple of photos of the newly married couple in this amazing location before everyone jumped on the party bus to the reception.

Wedding entertainment at its best

What I loved about mark and Tamsin's wedding was the pure joy on everyone's face and the amount of love that was shown. There were many laughs during the speeches as many different people spoke which made the evening a fun and lively affair. It was also great to see so many people on the dance floor partying the night away.
