Vicky & Gordon ~ Country Garden wedding

Heyyyy guys, so sorry I've been absolutely rubbish at this blogging thing!! I'm travelling a lot this year, hence the lack of updates but I promise there will be more blogposts coming soon.

So to start here is Vicky & Gordon's garden wedding that I shot last August. This lovely couple got hitched at Gordon's auntie's stunning country house with the ceremony at a church 10 mins up the road. I really enjoyed photographing the entire day, but one of my favourite parts was definitely a surprise game of 'pass the parcel' that Gordon had organised for his bride to play in the morning. Each layer revealed a special gift - sparklers and pack of tissues for the bridesmaids, Jimmy Choo sneakers, a diamond necklace and a tear-inducing letter for Vicky..needless to say I was crying behind my camera. I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking!!

*Huge thank you to my friend Ahmani for second shooting this wedding with me!


I know I probably say this every year but I don't think I've known any year that has gone as quickly as this one. This year is rather special because it marks ten years since I picked up my first digital SLR..and I love it as much as I ever did. I think if I could time travel to the past and tell my 16 year old self this is the journey that my little canon 400D was taking me on, my young self would have laughed in my face. Umm you mean making a living doing what I love the most...? I don't think so!!! 

And of course none of this would happen without my couples. To say that I am grateful is a bit of an understatement, and thank you is not quite enough. But my vocabulary is limited so it will have to do for now. To all my wonderful couples, whether you're past, present or future; thank you, and thank you. You may not realise it but this isn't merely a job of mine, it's also where I learn to experience and celebrate life through your life...the amount of goodness, happiness and love that I've felt in every single wedding that I have shot cannot be put into words; I can only hope they bleed into my work. 

Below are images of some my favourite moments from this year. As much as I love an epic sunset and the perfect creative shot, there is nothing quite like belly laughs, tears of joy and moments caught off guard.. Big love to you all, have a wonderful Christmas & New Years!!!

F & S ~ Wilderness Wood wedding

I'm not allowed to have a favourite wedding but this wedding seriously makes my heart burst. F & S got married at Wilderness Wood- an absolute dream of a venue. F is part Iranian so they incorporated a little Iranian tradition of sprinkling sugar over the couple as a metaphor of making the marriage sweet, which I found adorable. The ceremony was followed by a walk in the woods, loads of good food, speeches that left me in tears and also laughter; a ceilidh and a silent disco where everybody danced into the night.

Also did I mention the talented bride made her own dress? Yes, she hand-sewed the embroidery on her dress! I honestly couldn't have asked for a more perfect couple and day to photograph.
