WOWZER it’s been over 2 months since I last blogged, oops! I was doing SO WELL, but it really doesn’t matter - because I’m blogging now! I still have some of last years awesome weddings to share but I thought I’d update you with 2019 so far because I’ve already photographed 7 of my own epic weddings and second shot a couple too as well as some product shoots and couple shoots!

I’m happy to be on hand as little or as much as you want when it comes to being involved with your planning. Some people find they like to find their own suppliers along the way, other couples will ask for lots of recommendations for all aspects of their wedding party. I talked about find suppliers here but I always love to recommend people I know and have worked with so you can have a super supplier squad on your day! (we’re like the Avengers but more helpful and less destroying everything…)
The ceremony took place in a woodland clearing in front of the most beautiful floral moongate by The Country Garden Flower Company. The ceremony area was filled with flowers, which was perfect for the surroundings. The ceremony began with several beautiful readings from friends and family, and finished with them walking down the aisle and being showered with colourful confetti. It was a wonderful ceremony, full of lots of laughter and so much love. The ceremony was led by their friend Stevo who really made it witty and perfect for them, it was full of fun readings by friends that all fit in with their literary theme and ended with a Their final reading was an adapted version of the poem, A Scientific Romance, by Tim Pratt. A close friend Richard had memorised the whole thing (it was long), and delivered it with confidence and wit which had everyone laughing, including me!
When Kat and Colin first got in touch with me about their Mexican inspired fiesta wedding in Hackney, I was so excited – they were planning such a fun and laid back wedding with lots of colour, a piñata and even a mariachi band. Kat and Colin are the loveliest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
Hattie and Tom got married last July at the lovely Chichester Village Hall, which is a beautiful village hall in Godalming. They had their official ceremony a few days before, which meant they could have a personal celebrant led ceremony at the venue. They chose Chichester Hall, because it has so many options and it cut the budget right down for them. It was a DIY wedding, which I really love because you get that strong sense of family and friends helping out. I love shooting weddings at village halls, because it’s always so chilled and there’s no strict schedule. This hall in particular was lovely and light inside and had a cricket pitch outside which meant plenty of open space to take couple photos.
Why do I love smoke bombs?
Well, firstly I LOVE colour, all of the colours of the rainbow make me super happy so I find smoke bombs a fun way to inject a little bit more colour into a photograph. If you're having an outside wedding in a field, you're surrounded by a lot of green, pop an orange and yellow smoke bomb behind you and it really makes you stand out in your photo more!
Oh hey there! I hope you've all had a bloody brilliant Christmas, are suitably full from festive feasts and are ready for the New Year! I know a lot of people do "year in review" style posts so I thought I'd jump on that bandwagon and follow suit!
