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

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 …

My very favourite thing about Instagram is that individuals have just as much of a voice as big brands, if not more. It’s a platform that is fair in its distribution of exposure and equates engagement as its strongest currency. And I engage much more with real women living real lives above fantasy starlets faking it all. Also, I have huge admiration for women taking their social media platforms and using them to portray a positive and inclusive message.

So I was super thrilled to be asked by Rock n Roll Bride to shoot Natalie Lee aka Style Me Sunday, the body positive activist and influencer with almost 60k IG followers. Sadly, not many wedding magazines will put a girl in her 30s or a girl with an afro on the cover so it was incredible to see this shoot when it hit the racks. Thank goodness there are women like Natalie and Kat being active on social media. The shoot used simple pastel backgrounds, forward thinking styling and was a helluva lot of fun to work on.


When I was younger I never saw women like me on the covers of magazines …

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Amanda + Rob

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Amanda + Rob

Brighton is such a lovely place for an engagement shoot. I never run out of ideas and new spots to shoot in. Amanda and Rob fancied a day out down here so we met up to wander around. They have spent many happy days here before wandering around the Lanes, chilling in a pub and having a mocha in their favourite shop Snoopers Paradise.

So that is exactly what we did for their engagement shoot and it was lovely hanging out with them. For me, it’s lovely to get to know people a little and to see how they fit together ahead of the wedding day. For the couple, it’s good to take some time out of the wedding planning and this pair stayed down for some dinner to make the most of the day.


Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up in the morning when the day is new, and after having spent the DAY TOGETHER, hold each other close the whole night through …
