Orleans House Gallery wedding

 

Sophie and Sean chose to hold their intimate wedding in Twickenham at Orleans House Gallery. This octagonal baroque room has ornate high ceilings and is flooded with light. I loved how this place, nestled away in woodland by the River Thames, feels like something from a fairytale. It is an oasis of calm in the city, you would never know you were in London. And yet it has the understated chic London vibe that suited this couple down to the ground.

 

Happy wife, happy life!

 

After the ceremony, the couple shared a relaxed champagne reception with their guests outside Orleans House Gallery. Sophie could not stop smiling and laughing, the joy was just radiating out of her and it was infectious. It was obvious that everyone was having such a great time. And what a Goddess Sophie looked in her Justin Alexander fishtail gown! I love that Sophie wore her hair down with a long tulle veil that kept catching the breeze.

We wandered just out of the grounds to the river for their couples portraits. I think the backdrop of The Thames and the London streets gives these photographs an authentic sense of place. This is the city where they met and fell in love and it mattered that this was reflected in their wedding photographs.

 

Kew Gardens Wedding

 

I hopped onto their red Routemaster bus with the newlyweds to their reception near Kew Gardens.

The laid back atmosphere of the Kew Gardens Hotel suited the day perfectly. The charming walled garden area made for a classic London wedding backdrop for the wedding breakfast. There were hints of gold, pink and lush green throughout, which has got to be one of my favourite wedding colour schemes. It’s modern and fresh but also so feminine and romantic.

Thank you to Helen for assisting me on the day. After the speeches, we left them to continue the party into the night.

What a fabulous London wedding! Click on this link to see another Kew Gardens wedding on my blog. I can’t wait for my next. Are you planning a wedding in Twickenham or Richmond and looking for a fine art documentary wedding photographer? Let’s talk.

Hardwick Hall engagement shoot

 

I loved photographing these two during their spring engagement shoot.

Don’t you just love how tender these kisses are? This is how they were throughout our engagement shoot at Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire. Suzy and Nobin travelled down from Manchester for our shoot, to explore a little bit of the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. I tend to do my engagement and portrait shoots in Nottinghamshire but I love to travel further afield, just ask me to quote for my travel expenses.

This is a wonderful spot for your engagement and family portraits. These two were a little nervous before our shoot but I managed to put them at ease and create some natural and relaxed portraits in the process. So many people say they are worried about having their photographs taken, so if that strikes a chord with you, you’re not alone. I strive to make it as easy and relaxed as possible. During the shoot, we just wandered around the grounds chatting about their wedding plans and taking photographs. I found some amazing light in the woodland which made my heart skip a beat.

I just love everything about this collection of images and I’m delighted the couple do to.

Are you planning your engagement shoot or wedding at Hardwick Hall and love these images? Let’s talk about making some beautiful pictures.

Wethele Manor wedding

 

Sam and Matthew’s outdoor Wethele Manor wedding was a treat to photograph. When I arrived in the morning, Sam and her girls were calm and relaxed as they were getting ready. Sam looked beautiful in her white pyjamas as she was having her make up done and these are some of my favourite portraits of the day. There is something so special about spending time with someone just hours before they get married and it is one of the many privileges of my job to witness this.

The couple married outside in a moving and personal ceremony which included live acoustic guitar music and readings from friends. They beamed all the way through their vows and back down the aisle again to their courtyard drinks reception. As the wedding fell over the Easter weekend, the couple arranged an egg hunt for their younger guests which was very popular.

After I photographed the groups, I spent some time with Sam and Matt taking their portraits. I just love Sam’s eyes, they are so striking. What a beautiful woman. The couple then joined their guests for speeches and dinner in their beautiful marquee. I loved the mini egg table treats and the delicate clouds of gypsophilia on the chairs. The subtle pale colour scheme is a winning combination with my fine art documentary style of photography. The marquee colour scheme perfectly complimented the soft pink bouquets and bridesmaids dresses. If you choose a light colour scheme like this, it can really help me to produce a fresh and bright collection of images.

What a beautiful and happy couple, I had such a wonderful day. I wish them all the best in their future together.

I believe in community. I also believe that women need other women and that we must take time out to nurture ourselves. To find a group of women from all over the country who share these values was energising.
