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!
My last wedding of 2014 – Hannah and Richard and their beautiful Christmassy celebration at the Grim’s Dyke Hotel in London. I absolutely adore Hanhah’s style and her special winter wedding mittens! Hope you’re all having a lovely festive time, see you here in the next year!
“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.
“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!

I’m currently working on these two beautiful autumn weddings. Both ladies chose pretty shades of white for their bridal bouquets and floral decor!
Emma and Graham’s wedding day took place across not one, not two, but three venues. Emma and the ladies chose Danesfield House Hotel (where I recently shot a wedding) as their getting ready destination. The ceremony took place at St Nicholas church in Hedsor. And the reception was held at a very cool boutique hotel Sanctum On The Green, also known as Luke’s dining room. Like I previously mentioned I often find myself shooting weddings in this stunning part of Buckinghamshire. I was completely blown away by the location of Emma and Graham’s church. It’s not often you can enjoy views like the ones opening from St Nicholas. Another nice surprise was the reception venue. Lovely garden and outdoor pool, contemporary design and food and a glam rock atmosphere (apparently the place is owned by people from the showbiz industry). All in all it was a fantastic day spent across these very different places, including our stop at the river Thames for some portraits, which made Emma and Graham’s day unique and unforgettable.
