Hannah & Richard’s wedding at Grim’s Dyke Hotel in London

I am delighted to share more photos from Hannah and Richard’s wedding at Grim’s Dyke Hotel in London, which they celebrated just before Christmas. Hannah looked absolutely stunning, I love each and every vintage inspired detail of her wedding outfit. And how cute are these mittens? (yes, it was cold!) The venue suited the wedding perfectly. We had plenty of festive colours and lights and were blessed with incredible winter light. It was a brilliant way to finish another year!

A family photo shoot near Milton Keynes, Bucks ~ Fiona & family

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a lovely time! I certainly did spending time with my family in snowy Moscow (you can get some ideas what I’ve been up to following me on Intstagram). But I’m back to work now and I’ve decided to begin with my New Year resolution. Which is TO SHOOT MORE PORTRAIT SESSIONS. You might know from my Facebook page that I’ve been trying to keep my life balanced and I wasn’t taking many portrait shoots last year. Well, at the beginning of this year it’s time to catch up a little. And now there is an even better reason to book me for your portrait session:

Below is one of my last year family sessions. It’s brilliant when your clients are returning to you. Fiona was one of them, I love looking back at this family’s pictures I took for her back in 2011. Liam has grown a lot since I last saw him (as you may notice) and turned into a handsome and very lively young man! What I love about these images is how different I feel looking at them now and what I felt during the session itself. Back then I had a feeling that this was one of my biggest challenges photographing a child. Children always have their own opinion about things. Liam had a very strong opinion that posed photo shoot was not something he liked. But together with the help of his mum, Fiona and the rest of the family we managed to get some lovely shots! I love how you can see Liam’s personality shining through them and even more so I love his genuine smile on so many of those pictures! :)

A London wedding at The Adam & Eve Gastropub ~ Natalie & Lucas

“They’re excellent! Thanks so much for sending them over; we really enjoyed looking at them over the weekend. Can’t wait to put together our wedding album! Thanks for all your hard work on the day, I realise our families weren’t the easiest bunch to photograph.” – Natalie.

I am very pleased to share some images from Natalie and Lucas’s wedding here. It was a beautiful and relaxed day which was an absolute pleasure to be a part of and to photograph. I especially loved taking these simple and intimate portraits of Natalie and Lucas (you’ll find some more if you scroll down). We only had about 5-10 minutes before the meal for this mini shoot and I knew it was important for Natalie to have “at least one decent photo” of her and Lucas. It makes my heart sing when people I photograph look as romantic and unforced on my images as these two below.
Some details of the wedding. Natalie and Lucas got married at St Anthony of Padua Church in Radlett. Their reception took place at The Adam and Eve gastropub in Mill Hill, London. Natalie was wearing a beautiful dreamy gown designed and made by her talented mum(!) who does dressmaking in her spare time. Flowers are by Gill Sutton. The make-up artist was Michelle O’Neill and the hair was done by Tracey Glynn.

A lovely family wedding in Beaconsfield and Amersham ~ Lidia & Paul

“Wow – just had a quick look and they look great – fantastic reminder of the day.  So many things I’d forgotten already!  Everyone looks so happy!” – Lidia.

Lidia and Paul had been together for 25 years before they got married in September this year. That’s right, 25 years! No wonder their wedding was a very warm family celebration. Just for the closest and dearest. A small intimate ceremony took place at the Beaconsfield registry office with the following reception at The Crown Inn in Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire. The Crown Inn is one of those lovely places where modern approach comes together with history inside and out (I absolutely loved that cobbled courtyard!) Lidia put a lot of effort into making sure that her day is the most beautiful day in her life, with the help from her talented florist The Garden Room.The day felt completely relaxed and stress free although I was very busy taking a few family portraits (photographers will know that typically time of group photos is the most stressful time of the day). I only spent 3 and a half hours in the company of Lidia, Paul and their families, but by the end of it, it felt like I knew everyone much longer.Thank you for having me Lidia and Paul, very nice to meet your and your lovely bunch of people and take photos for you!
