David & AlyciaLake Como Wedding

Well David & Alycia certainly know how to do things in style.

Their stunning Lake Como wedding was submerged in olive springs, eucalyptus & sensuous Peonies. Drenched in sunlight the couple had the weather they had dreamt of, and the day was everything they had envisioned and then some!

The Italian architecture ordained with beautiful cascading flowers perfectly framed the wedding party as they enjoyed the scrumptious food & bottomless Aperol Spritz’s. Obviously the perfect time of year for the gardens & architecture to look at its finest ‘Villa Monastero Pax Lenno’ looked the epitome of Italian Chic. The building exuded elegance with wrought iron balconies, jasmine clad archways, with a lake side position to overlook the glistening lake.

Speeding through the cool spray of the lake was a complete highlight for me. You really got a sense of the vastness of the lake, and also had the best view of all the extravagant Villas that adorned the edges. It was a really special moment for both David & Alycia, and I’m so thankful that they shared the opportunity with me.

The speeches always a daunting aspect for any groom, David took it in his stride as he wittingly had the whole wedding party in the palm of his hands as Alycia proudly gazed on.

They had guests mostly whom had travelled from either Singapore where they have lived for 6 years, or England where Family & friends reside. One thing is for sure they were all ready for a big party – and the Rave Cave hidden underneath the Villa ensured that. I would say it was more a personal nightclub rather than a cave, as they had a stage, a DJ, seating & a prepaid bar included! I loved photographing their wedding, but boy would it have been a fantastic party to be a guest at!

I’ll let my pictures do the talking for me, I really hope they encapsulate the day perfectly for David, Alycia & their families. Congratulations to the both of you for not only tieing the knot, but organising the most exquisite, mesmerising day!

Henry & EllieWethele Manor

After 4 and a half years together Henry & Ellie decided to put a ring on it & make it official after a proposal on a dog walk at Warwick Racecourse (on a bench where they had their first kisses). Sometimes you really do get lucky with working for the best people. and Henry & Ellie were that couple! Over the years I get to work with many fantastic couples, and I will always remember Henry & Ellie giggling their way through their wedding day. An absolute pleasure to be around.

...the land of fire and iceIceland

It seems that nearly everyone I talk to has either been or wants to desperately visit this small island in the North Atlantic. Thanks to social media most of us have been submerged by the stunning landscape of Iceland, and is now on most bucket lists of places to visit. So much so the number of foreign visitors exceeded 2,000,000 at the end of 2017.  There’s just something mystical about Iceland, something that grabs a hold of our collective travel souls and refuses to let go. After my first visit there this year I am already plotting my return visit; the allure is just too strong & there is so much to see. Add to that the fact it’s a short and easy flight from the UK with no time difference it really is the perfect destination for a quick getaway (if you’re not a sun seeking soul). It truly is a place of natural phenomena, of which will make you appreciate even more the green & blue marble spinning around in the universe we call home. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the narrative tours where I learned so much about this mystical place so I have sourced some weird & wonderful facts about Iceland I’d love to share with you all!

Jenny & SebHappy Valley & Aberdovey Bay

As Seb & Jenny are both free loving spirits I just knew they would be amazing to photograph for. I met with them both earlier on in the year to visit the venue, and I instantly understood why they both enjoyed spending any spare moment they had at Happy Valley.

Happy Valley on the welsh coast is where Jenny grew up and is her Nans secret hide away. With Jens nan being poorly over the last few years she wanted to pick somewhere which she meant a lot to her and the family. Since the first time she brought Seb to the cottage he fell in love with it, and together they couldn’t imagine anywhere else to say ‘I do’.

Steph & RajShustoke Farm Barns

Raj & Steph started their relationship as best friends until blossoming into a beautiful romance. 3 years into their relationship Raj popped the question with a cute treasure hunt for Steph to find Raj upstairs surrounded by candles holding a sparkling engagement ring; which she quickly said yes to before blowing out the huge fire hazard he had created!

Wethele ManorNeil & Georgia

After the hardest week of Georgia & Neil’s life from her late dad passing just days before the wedding, they both made the decision to carry on despite the heartache, and enjoy their day as her dad would have wanted them to. Georgia had organised the most amazing balloon release in honour of her father Pete. It was so beautiful, and a wonderful tribute to him.

Both Georgia and her mum had planned the whole wedding to perfection, and thought of absolutely EVERYTHING! The day was organised to ensure everybody had the most amazing day; which included an ice cream cart, outdoor games, a string quartet, and flowing booze which is always a winner with guests.

I need to give a shout out to the florist ‘Bumble & Wild’ who produced some exquisite bouquets and dressed the venue beautifully! https://www.bumbleandwild.co.uk/

They did an impeccable job, and kept busily working through the August showers we experienced through the morning of the wedding.

Georgia looked absolutely stunning, so much so Neil couldn’t keep his eyes off her! He was one very proud husband.

Georgia is the kindest, most thoughtful person I’ve had the pleasure to work for. I was included in all the favours, and sat down to a full 3 course lunch; she was so attentive asking me if I needed anything. I had such a great time at the wedding, I really do have the best job in the world, and it was an absolute pleasure to be there.

Here’s a snippet of their very special day, I hope they rekindle your wonderful memories. X

…after landing back in England late last night, I’m slightly puzzled as to why my feet aren’t dangling in the ocean with a cocktail in hand.

Dubrovnik is such a stunning place to visit, and I feel truly blessed that I have had the opportunity to photograph a wedding there with it’s stunning backdrop of architecture, and crystal clear waters.

Cliffie & SarahHeath House

…welcoming back Cliffie & Sarah from their amazing honeymoon at the Dominican Republic *virtual wave*

After 4 blissful years together  Cliffie decided to pop the question in Central Park, NY on a row boat, *swoon*!

They envisaged their venue to be at a manor house with a marquee. As soon as they saw ‘Heath House’ it took their breath away, and Justin & Sophie who own the house were so lovely and welcoming. They have two gorgeous pooches that also greeted them at the door which sealed the deal!

The excitement from Sarah was amazing to witness the morning of her wedding. There were no nerves, she just could not wait to marry the love of her life.

As Cliffie is from South Africa it was so important for them both to have all the family together to celebrate. It was so overwhelming for Cliffie as he lives so far from home, and for this very special occasion home came to him to be by his side.

I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon and that these pictures re-ignite the memories of your wonderful day.

Mr & Mrs BurrowsThe Bond Company

After 7 years together Michael & Georgia decided to tie the knot on the breath-taking island of  Santorini!

They had such an incredible time, and organised a wedding party back in the UK to celebrate with their nearest and dearest.
They had picked The Bond Company in Birmingham as their venue as they wanted something with quirky feel with character. It was a great venue, and somewhere I could really sink my teeth into creatively.

‘The Bond’ organised outdoor BBQ food, and Georgia busily decorated the venue the morning of the party. The Band were ‘The Commonjets’ and I would fully recommend them. They had everyone up and dancing shaking their ‘thang’. They got the party started with people screaming for an encore after they had finished their set.

Georgia looked absolutely stunning, and was an absolute dream to photograph. Michael looked very dapper with his two sons in tow stealing the show. It was so lovely to see such a close knit family, and all the love that surrounds them. I’m photographing her best friends wedding next week so I’m looking forward to a big catch up!

Wising Michael and Georgia the most amazing future together. This is where it all adventure begins <3
