When Katie and Matt first got in touch with me about their relaxed wedding in Hackney, I was so excited – they were planning the most relaxed urban wedding with friends, family and even dogs! Katie and Matt are the most fun people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!

Kirsty and Joe got married at the gorgeous Tudor Barn, Eltham, in August. It was a brilliant summery wedding, with tarot cards on the tables and homemade paper cranes creating an awesome photobooth backdrop.
We’ve all been to those weddings where we’re left standing around having awkward conversations with distant relatives about how our cat is doing while the bride and groom are off having their photos done, and it can feel like an eternity!
Anna and Matt got married at the awesome Colville Hall, Chelmsford, a few weeks ago. It was a wonderful wedding, with ivy everywhere and giant balloons on the tables. Check out their preview below!
I saw a post in one of those Facebook groups the other week, you know the ones, buy/see/rent/sell your soul for your wedding etc. (don't even try to deny that you haven't joined one, we all know everyone does, even if it's just for the giggles!) But it got me thinking, someone asked if they needed to wear white wedding shoes, someone else asked what shoes to wear with an Ivory wedding dress, someone else was struggling to find "bridal shoes". To me, if a bride wears shoes to her wedding, they're bridal shoes right? So I decided to look through some of my galleries to remind myself what shoes some of my brides had worn and upon further inspection not that many had opted for whatever a traditional white/ivory bridal shoe is meant to be, so here's an idea of what shoes you can wear with your dress!
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!
Up today is Jess & Bryans super fun, alternative wedding at Kings Weston House, Bristol. I actually met Jess whilst I was at University (UWE). We both took the same course where rather than write a dissertation, you write a business plan. Mine was on wedding photography of course and Jess's was on a cake business (wait until you see the wedding cake she made!). So when Jess first enquired I already knew it was definitely going to be an awesome laid back wedding!
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!
