Anyone within earshot of me yesterday would have heard me saying what an incredible day it was! A bride and groom who adore each other, the wonderful Miss Ava who is the most fantastic big sister to baby Reuben, sun glorious sun and all in the beautiful setting of The Great Barn in Devon. Easter weekend - you were an absolute dream (Yes, there was an Easter Egg hunt. Yes, it was awesome.)
I have a new obsession - Zimbabwean wedding dances. Instead of walking to their place after being announced in for the meal the entire bridal party does a choreographed dance to the head table - pretty darn cool! Combined with a high-energy (and very moving) ceremony and a dance floor that would.not.quit it’s fair to say Becky and David didn’t let the cold weather break their stride for one second. I loved riding shotgun on this incredible meeting of hearts and cultures xxx
A fort on a cliff near the sea, a couple that had me laughing all day, the most gorgeous doggo (Ted, you are a GOOD BOY) and an actual Bohemian Rhapsody sing-a-long! I was pretty spoilt all day long at Megan and John’s Polhawn Fort Wedding in Cornwall. What a wonderful day, thank you so much for having me along to freeze some moments in time! I bet that dance floor can tell some stories!!
PS: How about that wild old sparkler GIF - YES JOHN!
Where do I begin? Laura had me laughing from the minute she filled in her client form and when I got to meet Allan for out pre-wedding chat I found myself making the most ridiculous notes for the day (ie: call people biscuit!) I always knew I was in for a good day being there wedding photographer but nothing could have prepared me for this level of joy, emotion (yes, yes it’s hayfever I know) and pure, mad fun. They say you should marry your best friend, you guys have hit the absolute jackpot and it made a job that I already adore even more incredible to do - thank you :)
And, to all your wonderful guests: You BISCUITS!
Venue: The Green Cornwall (I love working here, beautiful setting and run by absolute experts who love weddings like I do!)
Emma and Perry got married at The Green, in Cornwall. An already special and beautiful day was made even more memorable because their two wonderful children, Bobbi and Toby got to watch them make the biggest commitment of their lives. Highlights include Emma rocking out to Prince during first dance, the pom pom confetti made by nan, seeing some familiar and fun faces, and the beautiful cherry blossom tree that wore its finest frock for the day.
When Rebekah and Joe booked me a year ago, I found out that Joe had proposed using an owl - how incredible is that? Part of his choice had to be that he just loves to see her smile, and smiles definitely weren’t in short supply on the day itself! These guys couldn’t even look at each other for one milisecond without beaming! Even the Winter sky couldn’t stay glum - during the ceremony the sun came out and despite it being a late February wedding, it felt like a perfect Summer’s day. Scroll on down for some serious feel-good-forever love vibes. Thanks for having me guys x
Before I headed off to South Africa last year I spent a few hours with the lovely Francesca (Frankie to her friends) and Will at the utterly charming Paschoe House. Winter weddings are always so cosy and atmospheric, and this one was made all the more special being nestled just before Christmas on the calendar. Here are a few of my favourites. (Keep an eye out for the beautiful moment where Frankie proudly side-eyes her brand-new husband at the altar - it’s everything)
