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!

Danesfield House Hotel & Sanctum On The Green wedding ~ Emma & Graham

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.

Buckinghamshire wedding photography | Three Horseshoes Radnage ~ Rosie and Greg

“Thank you so very much for the truly beautiful photographs of our wedding day – we are absolutely thrilled with them! The photographs really capture the essence of the day, almost telling the story, allowing us to live the day again! We couldn’t have asked for more, they are exactly the style we were hoping for. We made a very good choice, choosing you as our wedding photographer!” – Rosie and Greg.

Here I am again at the Three Horseshoes in Radnage, Buckinghamshire where Rosie and Greg celebrated their marriage and where I previously shot a couple of other weddings. Right from the beginning when I met the couple I knew it would be a pleasure to witness and photograph their big day. Two lovely, easy going people organising a relaxed and laidback country wedding and wanting to have it captured in a natural, unforced way. What not to love about it? Especially when the bride has the most radiant smile. And even more especially when her mum and sisters and nanna have just the same! (of course I found out about this bonus later) :) Rosie and Greg, it was brilliant to spend the day with you and your families and friends, thank you for your trust in me! A big thank you to Rosie’s mum who was looking after me so well. And also a thank you to George who came along to second shoot with me.

Danesfield House wedding ~ Sophie & Jake

“Thank you so much. We are absolutely delighted with them and are so glad that you got all the shots that you did.” – Sophie.

Sophie and Jake got married at St Mary’s church in Henley on Thames and chose magnificent Danesfield House in Buckinghamshire for their wedding celebration. I love this part of our county and what it offers in terms of settings for a wedding. After the service we went down to the riverside, what a lovely place in Henley! And of course used the immaculate gardens with stunning views at the venue, which it seems to me suited the couple and their wedding so perfectly. Congratulations to Sophie and Jake!

Pembroke Lodge wedding, Richmond Park ~ Kellan & Chris

pembroke lodge wedding

“I can’t tell you how thrilled we are with these pictures – they are absolutely stunning! Chris and I looked through them with the biggest grins on our faces last night, reliving things we’d forgotten about! And you captured so many moments so beautifully, when I didn’t even realise you were there. I was planning to frame a few of my favourites but I have no idea how I’m going to choose my favourites – I think my house will end up covered in them! Thank  you so much for doing such a brilliant job! Thank you again – and if any of my friends get engaged, I’ll recommend you without hesitation!” – Kellan.

Kellan and Chris had an effortlessly perfect day. It all started brilliantly at the Richmond Hill Hotel where Kellan was getting ready with her Mum and bridesmaids. Lovely Kylie McMichael was doing the makeup and hair. The atmosphere was calm, but fun at the same time (despite some predictions about a possible hurricane). The room was filled with so many beautiful things including absolutely amazing flowers by Scarlet & Violet. Don’t they look incredible! Kellan’s Jenny Packham dress was exquisite and I love her choice of high heels by Jimmy Choo. The ceremony and reception took place at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park (I shot another wedding there previously). What a fantastic venue with truly breathtaking views! Kellan and Chris were fun and pleasure to have in front of the camera and spend the day with. Many congratulations to them!
