Hanna & Daniels most AMAZING Hever Castle Wedding!

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

So, When a bride calls me to say they’d like to book me as their wedding photographer, and that they don’t even need to meet me because I’d come highly recommended, I most certainly feel dead chuffed and quite proud of myself!

Then, they tell you their plans, and you start thinking wooooooooaaaaahh!!! What an opportunity, to have THIS as your backdrop!!!

And then you start feeling quite nervous deep inside!!  You have one chance to get this spot on, and do this wedding the justice that it deserved!  That combined with a day that was supposed to be raining the entire day, and a bride that knows EXACTLY how she wants things done, eh Hanna!!  The pressure was on. HA!   I then notice my bride has just liked my facebook page, so I get to have a sneaky peek at their profile picture.  And you think, get in there!! Ha! Not only have I got a whoppingly wonderful venue, but a pretty good looking couple to match it!!!

So, Hanna got ready at her mums house, a very relaxed morning, and off to Hever Castle we went.  Hanna and Daniel held their ceremony on the Loggia, overlooking the lake.  Absolutely stunning and tranquil, with the harpist playing in the background, and ducks walking through!  It was a late ceremony, at 4.30pm.  And what looked like a day that was going to be full of rain, suddenly at about 4pm, the clouds parted and we actually ended up with  a glorious day and the sunshine made an appearance!  No umbrella’s required whatsoever.

After the ceremony, we covered the group shots, and I was then able to disappeared off with Hanna and Daniel, whilst their guests enjoyed their drinks over looking the lake.  The pressure was on again, so so so many opportunities for backdrops, so many ideas of where we could go, and so little time to cover the vast grounds!  Hanna and Daniel were troupers, they were determined to cover it all, and off we all went for a brisk journey through the stunning grounds of Hever, to finish just as the sun was starting to set.

Back inside we went, into the Guthrie Pavillion for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations.  Hanna and Daniels families are both Italian, so with the vibrant characters filling the room, the laughter flowed throughout.  It was lovely to watch the close relationships between everyone.

Such a fantastic wedding, and I could have actually chosen a million images to show you  from this lovely day, but have a look for yourself, here’s just some of my favourites from the day….. enjoy…..

A Vintage Oaks Farm Wonderland for Michelle & Tom

Friday, September 27th, 2013

I’ve been meaning to write this blog for sometime now, Michelle & Tom got married in August, at one of my favourite venues Oaks Farm in Shirley, Croydon.  It’s a fabulous venue, and to top it off the weather was gorgeous enough to have an outside ceremony.  And what a lovely couple!! Michelle & Tom met at school, so being child hood sweethearts with their 2 little boys, finally decided to tie the knot.  A great couple, and the relationship between them was lovely to watch through my lens!

Michelle got ready at the Selsdon Park Hotel, in a lovely spacious room.  Michelle’s hair was created by Sam Morgan of Chrysalis Hair & Beauty, and did a fantastic job, like she does everytime I have the pleasure of working with her.

Shelly from Muscari Whites florist, as always created the most spectacular sites.  Shelly was given free reign to create anything she liked within Michelles colour scheme, and the ideas just flowed.  See for yourself, there was something different to look at everytime you turned your head!!

This wedding was an absolute cracker, full of really great characters, with banter flowing and giggles and laughter all around.  Have a look for yourself, just lovely!!…….
