Littlefield Manor Wedding Photography

Late summer wedding at Littlefield Manor

It seems like an eternity ago when I first spoke with Jennifer. I couldn't have imagined back then how much fun this wedding was going to be. Like many weddings this year this was third time lucky. The two other dates the weather was awful and for the actual wedding date it was glorious, hallelooya!

Jennifer was with the girls in the picturesque Running Horses pub and was made to feel so welcome from the start. I could sense the love in the air for Jennifer as soon as I arrived. Jennifer has alopecia and told me on the run up to the wedding that she was undecided whether she would wear a wig for the actual wedding. She decided to do some portraits in the morning to show what it meant to wear her wedding dress in the face of alopecia and I was so glad she did and was honoured to do the photos. Oli meanwhile in the morning was nearby at his parents home with his family and groomsmen. It didn't seem long at all till we were all at the church.

Oli was looking mighty fine if a little nervous at the church waiting for Jennifer to arrive. The service itself was beautiful, some really heartfelt speeches and some fantastic live music which wasn't the only music I was going to hear during the wedding. These guys left the church in style and were whisked away to Littlefield Manor for the reception.
Littlefield Manor in Guildford is a wonderful venue set in the countryside with gorgeous views and perfect for a wedding celebration. I love being a surrey wedding photographer when you have venues like this on your doorstep. We were treated to more live music while drinks were served until everyone was called to the amazing marquee for the wedding breakfast, Before that though we had the speeches and they were so much fun. Lots of laughs, tears, smiles and to top it all off Jennifer brought the house down with a song for Oli. I was blown away, this girl has talent! Also if Strictly want another dancing couple then *ahem* look no further than this twinkle toed couple. Dance-floor owned right there, Tunes were popping all night and the dance-floor was the place to be!

 

Congrats to two of the loveliest people I've had the pleasure of photographing. Hope you enjoy this little sneak peak from your day.
Great to work for the first time with blank canvas weddings

Strawberry Hill House Wedding Photography

Fancy a wedding where the venue looks like its from a fairytale? Strawberry Hill house is that wedding venue. Located in Twickenham it reminds me of a scene from a disney movie every time I drive past. It's a venue local to me so I am lucky enough to have photographed there on a number of occasions. Smaller more intimate weddings can be held inside while larger gatherings can be held in a marquee on the lawn. the grounds here offer a wonderful backdrop for family and couple portraits. On this glorious sunny day in the height of summer the house looked every bit that fairytale wedding venue on this wedding of epic proportions. The day started not in Twickenham but slap bang in central London where the bride to be was preparing with her family and bridesmaids. Only a stones throw away the groom was easing into the day with his closest friends. It was so chilled when I arrived at the hotel and I had a great time photographing everyone, Christelle looked amazing in her dress and it wasn't long till we hot-footed it to the church. I say that as the temperature was sky high!

The Orthodox church service was a sight to behold and a real pleasure to photograph. The church was so welcoming, the service itself was so interesting, fun and serious in equal measure. It's a very special feeling being part of these intimate moments and I love recording them. The guys left the church with a sea of confetti raining down on them before jumping in the car to drive across London. If you've never visited Strawberry Hill house you simply must. It's an incredible example of gothic architecture. Wedding photography at strawberry hill house as you can imagine is a real pleasure. Every room is unique and offers an amazing backdrop to your photographs. The colours are superb, the sense of grandeur is off the scale and the rooms provide an amazing sense of intimacy. If you also take into account the beautiful grounds you have access to there are endless options for photographs. We arrived in good time before the guests which meant we also had time to climb onto the roof of the building.

Our newly weds were then introduced into the gardens of Strawberry Hill House by a number of Lebanese drummers. Everyone really got into the spirit of things and it was magical, so entertaining. We had great music, dancing and Christelle and Nick ended up in the air paraded about on the shoulders of friends and family. It was so much fun to capture. After a little breather it was time to settle in the marquee for some truly outstanding food and some quality speeches.

This was a wedding that had everything going on, it didn't stop after the speeches either. We had sparklers, games on the lawn, more incredible food and some fantastic dancing to an amazing live band. You guys know how to throw a party!
