In and Out Naval Club, London Wedding

In and Out Naval Club, London Wedding

You know those super imposing private member clubs in the elegant squares around central London? Ever wish that you could peek inside? I certainly have and so when the lovely Hilary and Kevin got in touch from their home in Canada to say that they were planning an intimate wedding in London at the private In and Out Naval Club, well of course I was in!

This pair are a lot of fun and many of their friends and family flew over to join them at their super elegant wedding. It felt like a really fancy dinner party but a very laid back one. They had a proper cocktail hour.. why do Brits NOT do these? They are such a great idea! And their speeches were some of the most heartfelt that I’ve ever heard.


Fill my heart with song, and let me SING FOR EVER more. You are all I long for, all I worship and adore …

Stylish Wedding at Wiston House, Sussex

Stylish Wedding at Wiston House, Sussex

If you are looking for a venue in Sussex that has that stylish country house party feel then Wiston House is the place for you. Emily and Dan checked in on the Friday night and hosted an intimate dinner party then on the Saturday their wedding kicked off. Friends and family all came together to celebrate and were free to roam about the grounds and the house.

It might look like a very impressive and grand space but it actually felt homely. Of course that is also down to Emily and Dan and their families’ great hosting skills. You don’t have to go too far at Wiston to find gorgeous places for photos both inside and out and I’d say that this lovely pair most definitely achieved their goal of having a relaxed, informal wedding with a huge amount of style.


And I will raise my hand up into the night time sky and COUNT THE STARS that’s shining in your eye …


That One Time When Crown & Glory Had a Festival Wedding …

That One Time When Crown & Glory Had a Festival Wedding …

You know I’ve been in this game for quite a while now, I’ve literally been to hundreds and hundreds of weddings in every corner of the UK. But this festival style wedding will forever be one of my all time favourites. Yes the Bride and Groom (Sophie and Gareth from Crown and Glory) are my friends and it’s always super special to be the photographer for someone you know; Yes I’d actually made it to Sophie’s wonderful hen party back in the summer and yes some of my close friends were also at this wedding. But above all of that, what made this wedding truly special was the couple. Sophie and Gareth know how to throw a helluva party, that’s for sure but what you might not see in these photos is just how much effort they made to ensure that all their guests had an utterly brilliant time. Right from the moment we all gathered in this wonderful place in Deepest Darkest Wales, the good times really rolled.

When I got to my room, I found an incredible welcome package including a bespoke flower crown that perfectly matched my skirt. Later on, I looked around the room as I shot the speeches and saw a sea of gorgeous flower crowns all perfectly matched to outfits and it dawned on me that Sophie has asked me what was I wearing weeks before.. ahhhhhh! See it’s that level of kindness that made us guests feel so much warmth and love from the newlyweds. Their generosity dripped out of every corner of this wedding and I left feeling like my joy tank had been refilled. Looking at the images again reminds me of so many fun moments. Now if this wedding is looking a little familiar then that might be because it is featured in the current issue of Rock n Roll Bride Magazine. Sophie is starring on the cover like the Goddess that she is.. well when your Maid of Honour is editor of a bridal magazine, it kind of HAD to happen, right?


a backless dress and some beat up sneaks, my discotheque Juliet TEENAGE DREAM, I felt it in my chest as she looked at me, I knew we were bound to be together …

Rainbow Wedding Editorial | Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Could we do a Rainbow Coloured Wedding Shoot but make it sophisticated? This was the challenge that we set ourselves for an editorial with Rock n Roll Bride magazine. So we gathered up a load of wigs from Annabelle’s, some very gorgeous coloured dresses, a bunch of giant balloons and headed to the studio.

I pictured a rainbow, you held it in your hands. I HAD FLASHES but you saw the plan. I wandered out in the world for years but you just stayed in your room …

Burgh House, London Wedding | Emma + Roxy

Burgh House, London Wedding | Emma + Roxy

Emma and Roxy held their wedding ceremony at Burgh House in London followed by a reception at nearby pub The Stag. It was such a delightful day to be involved in, so well planned and laid back. This pair know how to throw a party and they brought together friends and family from literally all over the planet for this day. How gorgeous do they look in outfits that they both chose from House of Ollichon but kept secret until the day?

 

At one point in this wedding, a slightly unusual feeling came over me. You know when they have speeches where everyone is invited up to speak if they want to? I found myself wanting to put my hand up to say a few words, I know weird right? But it was because this couple made me feel like I was also an old friend of theirs, they are that warm and inclusive! I loved spending their wedding day with them and continue to merrily stalk them both on Instagram.


This will be the day That you will hear me say That I will never run away. I am here for you Love is MEANT FOR TWO Now tell me what u’re gonna do …
