North Hidden Barn Festival Wedding | Amanda + Rob

North Hidden Barn Festival Wedding | Amanda + Rob

This pair are big into music so when they got to planning their wedding, they decided to be inspired by their favourite music festivals and have a festival wedding at the gorgeous North Hidden Barn. A gem of a venue that lends itself so well to this style of wedding. Rob’s a brit and Amanda is from the US so the whole thing was a mash up of both cultures.

They went all out on the lighting, smoke machines and confetti canons, well the groom does put on events for a living and he had a heck of a lot of fun planning this one. He also surprised the bride with concert tickets to Jack White, Britney Spears AND The Beach Boys.. I mean c’mon!!! That boy is a keeper, right?


I may not always love you but long as there are STARS ABOVE you. You never need to doubt it, I’ll make you so sure about it …


Brighton Pier Engagement Shoot | Jen + Pip

Brighton Pier Engagement Shoot | Jen + Pip

Jen and Pip decided to make a proper break out of it for their engagement shoot in sunny Brighton and took some time away from both wedding planning and parenthood by booking into a hotel for a couple of nights. We met for drinks and chatted about how they met at school and how life was now with a young baby.

Then we took a stroll along the beach and onto the pier. It’s such a fun and colourful place and though it’s always busy, you can usually find some little nooks and crannies away from the crowd. Are you planning your engagement shoot? Come to my home town and we can have some seaside fun!


And they said that when we grew up, we’d GET MARRIED and never split up …


Brighton Engagement Shoot | Lucy + Jacob

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Lucy + Jacob

Lucy and Jacob were planning their London wedding but live in Brighton so we decided to do their engagement shoot around the seafront. First of all we met at their favourite place to get coffee in the North Laines and then wandered down to the beach stopping when something caught our eye.

There’s always something fresh to shoot in Brighton and this pair were so crazy in love with each other that it was super easy to shoot them. I’ve now shot their wedding (I’m that fast at blogging!) and if you pick up a copy of the latest Rock n Roll Bride magazine you can see a lovely feature on it.


She saw shooting stars flash by, The MOON EXPLODED in the sky, Her heart flipped when they kissed, Stardust on her lips…


Syon House, Syon Park London Wedding | Aoife + Ali

Syon House, Syon Park London Wedding | Aoife + Ali

True story, when Aoife and Ali first got in touch about their wedding at the wonderful Syon House in Syon Park, London, they asked me if I’d ever been there before. Yes but many, many moons ago and it was a photo shoot with Sir Cliff Richard. I remember him leaning off a balcony looking wistful.. Anyway, it was nice to be back as this is a truly magnificent venue. I spotted some wedding photos of the current owners on a side table with the actual Queen in them! Yes, it’s a helluva fancy place.

The bride and groom were super lovely and they know how to throw a mighty bash. After a beautiful and personal ceremony in the main house, we made use of the interiors for photos, including one of those super long galleries that were built for having a walk about in and a gossip after dinner. Then we all headed to the Great Conservatory for the reception. This was my favourite part, the light is gorgeous and the collection of botanics is very impressive. Who knew that’s what a cactus can grow to after a few hundred years?!


I’ve been all around the world, Marching to the beat of a different drum, But Just lately I have realised, MAYBE THE BEST is yet to come …


Cooling Castle Kent Wedding, Lauren + Miles

Cooling Castle Kent Wedding, Lauren + Miles

When you are just effortlessly cool, where on earth should you have your wedding? Well, how about Cooling Castle in Kent? See what I did there, eh? But it’s true, Lauren and Miles really are one heck of a stylish pair and had a wedding day that reflected their own brand of laid back elegance.

The groom is a South London boy who knows how to pose and the bride has a successful blog and big Insta following. So not too much pressure then! It was, of course a very gorgeous wedding with their beautiful children in centre stage. We even managed to get some decent weather despite the time of year.


Everybody stares as she goes by, Cause they can see the flame that’s in her eyes, Watch her as she’s lighting up the night …
