Anita & Marks wedding - Bartley Lodge New Forest

Anita and Marks wedding day was on a beautiful frosty morning back in December. They had made the long journey from Malta over to the stunning New Forest only a couple of days before . Anita is originally from Malta and the two met when studying at Southampton university several years ago, the New Forest had always been a favourite spot of theirs so made perfect sense for their wedding day.

The church they choose for their ceremony was the beautifully intimate Our Lady of Assumption in Lyndhurst, such a lovely ceremony full of sentiment and love, I've got to say one of my favourite so far! Then it was off to Bartley Lodge with a stop off along the way for their bride and [...]

2016 My Favourite photos!

Wow wow wow! What a busy 2016 I had, I photographed so many amazing weddings and have met lots of lovely couples making new friends along the way :) Its been so hard to choose my favourites from last year as there were so many but I have narrowed it down to some that I really think sum up my year.

Thank you so much to all the couples I photographed last year and especially the ones featured in my favs. Its been a pleasure photographing so many weddings, each one has been so different and unqiue, this was probably my most diverse year. Outdoor weddings, church weddings, intimate settings, historic venues, woodland settings the list goes on!

Very much looking forward to all my [...]

Elle & Sam's Engagement shoot- St Catherines Hill Winchester

Elle & Sam's engagement shoot- St Catherines Hill Winchester

With Autumn now upon us I thought it would be nice to share a little summer sun from Augusts engagement shoot with Elle and Sam on St Catherine's Hill in Winchester. I loved shooting here and it was a really special place for Elle & Sam as they actually got engaged on top of the hill last year when Sam went down on one knee after a romantic picnic! A very steep climb to the top in some hot weather but well worth it for the spectacular views across Winchester and the lovely little woodland area.

Really looking forward to their wedding next year at Woodlands Lodge hotel in the New Forest........

Rachael & Will- Ockbrook village wedding

Last month I headed up to the quaint little village of Ockbrook set in the Derbyshire countryside for the gorgeous wedding of Rachael & Will. Im so excited to share with you all some of the highlights from their relaxed village wedding.

I loved the fact that Rachael & Wills wedding was entirely set in their home village, such a personal and community feel to the day. Their ceremony was held in the village church just down the road from their gorgeous house where the wedding breakfast was set , then later on we all headed over to the local pub for the first dance!

Rachael had worked hard on their english country garden and it looked absolutely stunning with the indian marquet tent set [...]

Katie & Tom - Clockbarn Whitchurch

Back in March I had the pleasure of photographing Katie and Tom's Military wedding at North Waltham village church and reception held at the rustic Clockbarn in Whitchurch.

Katie was getting ready at Norton Park hotel in with her 3 bridesmaids and mum. Beautiful setting for bridal prep and perfect for a few family photos in front of the stream before we left!

Having never shot a military wedding I was very excited to see how it would differ, I loved seeing everyone in their uniforms. After the ceremony there was a military guard of honour , stunning to look at all the swords forming an archway for Katie and Toms exit as the new Mr and Mrs Sayer. After this we all hopped over [...]

Why I love Woodlands Lodge Hotel!

Here’s The Perfect  wedding venue For Anyone Who wants a more intimate setting!

Woodlands lodge hotel have kindly been recommending me for a couple of years now, Ive always thought what a beautiful little venue it is so wanted to share this with you.

The hotel is nestled in the heart of the New Forest , surrounded by woodlands, countryside and wildlife, you almost feel as if you have stepped into a wonderland world, barely a car can be heard! Although the hotel is smaller compared to others in the area whenever I photograph a wedding here I am astonished at the many different areas there are for photos. Beyond the immediate gardens there is a small meadow area boasting a very unique eucalyptus tree. Imogene and Rob very kindly let me use their grounds for a bridal [...]

Becki & Jonnys engagement shoot - Exbury gardens

Last week I met up with Becki and Jonny (plus little willow) for their engagement shoot a year to the day before their wedding at Skylark Country Club. They decided upon the beautiful Exbury Gardens in the New Forest, what a great location! We were spoilt for choice with photo opportunities around every corner, 3 lakes , plus very friendly carp! beautiful wild flower meadow , a pond made from a ww2 bomb explosion and gorgeous views of Beaulieu creek! I couldn't ask for much more.

We explored the grounds for over an hour (almost getting lost!) and getting some fantastic shots as we went, the rain even kept away! Can't wait for their wedding next year June 1st....... here are some of my favourite [...]

How to choose an engagement shoot location

I am often asked by couples wheres the best place for an engagement shoot? how can we make the most of it? So I thought id do a little blog post with some helpful information and my past experience of my favourite engagement shoots!

Engagement / pre wedding shoots are an important part of the wedding process , not only do they help you to feel more relaxed in front of the camera but it enables me to get to know you a little more before your big day , it gives you a chance to see how I work and what to expect form your shoot on the day. Also if you have any favourite shots we can then recreate this or something similar [...]

Sacha & Johns Wedding - Osborne House

Sacha and John were married at the end of last month at the stunning historic location of Osborne house on the Isle of Wight. I was so excited when I got a call from Sacha to book me for their Osborne wedding! Ive wanted to photograph a wedding there for a while now and they gave me the perfect time.

The sun shone down on us all day! Sacha & John live in Hamble but are enthusiastic sailers and often sail over to the beautiful island, so what a perfect place for their wedding. Of course Osborne House was the holiday home of Queen victoria , Albert and her children, such an interesting place with an incredible history and really gave their wedding a special [...]

Rosie & James Engagement shoot- Box Hill Surrey

A few days ago I set off on a scenic drive up into the Surrey hills to meet Rosie & James for their engagement shoot on Box Hill, what a beautiful spring day we had! Having never been to Box Hill before I was excited to see the area and find some photo spots! I wasn't to be disappointed as I drove up the zigzag road there were fabulous views and woodlands all around!

Rosie & James soon relaxed into their shoot and after a catch up chat we got some stunning shots!

Very much looking forward to returning to the area next year for their big day. Here are their sneak peek photos ........
