Jo & James ~ Nymans Gardens & Gildings Barn wedding

One of my favourite things about shooting weddings is witnessing not only the love shared by two people, but also by their family. I've never been very close to my family; by being part of someone's wedding day and watching the little acts of affection between their family it somehow fills a big gap in my heart. Jo & James' wedding was one of those occasions. They were married on one of the coldest day in April, I absolutely froze my ass off but my heart felt warm.

Camilla & Aschwin ~ Norwood Place Farm wedding, Surrey

Hello everyone! So sorry about the lack of updates, I'm still alive if you're wondering. I've been away for a couple of weeks shooting in Montenegro and Cornwall (and catching up on work after that), it's been a rather fun and manic month!

So thrilled to be sharing this wedding with you today! Camilla & Aschwin got hitched last month at Norwood Place Farm. Before the wedding I had a client meeting with Camilla & her mummy Christine at her friend's salon; I remember being sat there eating the cake that Christine had made, chatting to the two ladies while they got their hair done and thinking what a lovely mother & daughter pair they made!

On the wedding day I got to see the same kind of connection and much more, on a much bigger scale. There was the cutest nana Pat, the sweetest pairs of parents, Aschwin's loud and hearty laugh, the usher that seems like the happiest bloke alive, the most easy-going bride, group hugs, a lot of hugs, and one of the most heartfelt speeches I have heard. To top it all off they had a fancy dress party with loads of dancing (and more hugs)!

Camilla & Aschwin, thank you so much for sharing your day with me, it was an absolute pleasure to witness the bond you share together and with your family & friends! 

Monika & Adam ~ Smallfield Place wedding, Surrey

Adam & Monika tied the knot on a fine Saturday afternoon at St Luke's church, followed by their reception at the gorgeous Smallfield Place in Surrey. When I met this sweet couple last year they'd told me they wanted the themed to be based on the movie 'Up', and I had been really excited to see how they would incorporate the elements of this lovely movie into their wedding. I couldn't stop smiling when I saw that they'd filled the room with balloons along with other little details like the postbox and 'adventure book', and most of all the super adorable balloon cake!

Adam and Monika, I feel so honoured to be a part of your beautiful wedding! Congratulations and I hope you'll grow old and stay sweet together like Carl and Ellie in the movie :)
