Jo & Dylan Hartley - 1 Year On...

It’s incredible that a whole year has passed since Jo & Dylan’s beautiful wedding at Holdenby House in the Northamptonshire countryside. I felt today would be a perfect day to share some photography from the day and a few images that weren’t seen in the Hello! magazine feature.

It was the hottest day of the year with temperatures reaching a crazy 33° but, of course, Jo took it in her stride and looked breathtaking in her Suzanne Neville gown. Little Thea was the cutest flower girl and friends and family came from all over the world to help Dylan and Jo celebrate in style.

Ann, The Flower Stylist beautifully arranged the flowers on the day and the gorgeous cake was by the amazingly talented Becky North aka Baked by Becks. Massive thanks to my lovely 2nd shooter, Nat Halford.

Congratulation to Mr & Mrs Hartley on a fabulous day, wishing you many more years of happiness.

Ali & Ian | Marrakesh

One of my highlights from 2016 was being lucky enough to photograph Alison & Ian's breathtaking nuptials in Marrakesh, Morocco. Two beautiful people, inside and out, in one of the most heavenly places on the planet. Veering away from conventional wedding rules, Alison looked amazing in her rose quartz Alexander Mcqueen dress which was the perfect compliment to Ian's serenity blue suit (also Mcqueen). And yes, they were Pantone's colours of the year too. 

These guys certainly knew how to entertain their guests with camel rides, fire eaters, belly dancers and a traditional Joujouka band who travelled in especially from the Rif mountains. 

Thanks so much to Ali and Ian for letting me share their beautiful day at Villa Dinari, Marrakesh. An unforgettable day was had by all... 

Ode To September

Unbelievably it's the end of September so before we step over to October I thought I'd give you a catch up on what I've been up to. 

As this years wedding season slows down it means I have more time to work on some new, awesome styled shoots. I LOVE these things - the team that get together for them are some of the best wedding suppliers in Northamptonshire and we always have such a blast when we're together. It also means we can all get super creative and try out new styles and looks out. 

Earlier this month, one of our recent shoots, The Secret Garden, was featured on one of my favourite blogs, So You're Getting Married. Thanks to Phoebe from SYGM for featuring this one, it's always great to see you're work published and appreciated by others in the industry. We were lucky to work with the most gorgeous Sophie Gibson, model extraordinaire as well as some names you'll recognise from previous shoots. The look was ethereal bride and was shot in, wait for it,  a secret garden and some beautiful woodland in the Northamptonshire countryside. 

You can see the full feature on SYGM here. Ooh and now I have a lovely badge to feature on my website too! 

I also ventured down to Hatfield Woods with the likes of Rosie Hardy, for a Fairytale inspired shoot. Hatfield Woods is an amazing place just outside of London and is a photographer's dream. The full post will be coming soon on this one but for now here are a couple of sneak peeks from the day...

Love, Laughter & Destination Weddings...

2015 is off to a fantastic start but I thought I'd take 5 minutes out to say hi! So we started the year with a fantastic spread in the beautiful Image magazine as well as one of our pictures making it to the front page.


We're currently working with a fantastic bridal accessories designer, Miss Clemmie, who'll be launching her brand new website in the next couple of months - if you're a bit of a magpie keep them peeled, I guarantee you're going to love it...

Sunday 22nd March sees the return of The Vintage Wedding Gala at The Guildhall, Northampton. There will be a host of creative, luxury and bespoke wedding suppliers there on the day so if you're in the midst of wedding planning come down and join us. We'll be there again and this one proves to be even more awesome as there will be a live, catwalk show as well as some amazing suppliers from florists, to cake makers, stationery designers to vintage inspired videography...

2015 will be taking us to international shores again including Florence - Italy, Sweden and back to the USA. If you're having a destination wedding get in touch! We love to travel and it won't cost as much as you think...

One of my New Year resolutions was to find the time to blog more so until next time...

Nicola & Ben - Pre Wedding Portraits

A beautiful. balmy evening in the Northamptonshire countryside was the backdrop for this pre wedding shoot. Nicola and Ben are getting married this month in a beautiful 17th century gem, Doddridge Church, nestled in the heart of Northampton. This shoot was filled with laughter, a bit of banter and one of the most naturally happy couples I’ve met. Roll on the big day!
