Scott & Cheryl’s Rustic Themed Wedding at Farleigh

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Oh I could have easily added a trillion billion images to this blog, so many shots of such a fantastic wedding.   If i’m honest, I was a little nervous about shooting this wedding, as I wanted to do such a great job for these guys.  I’ve known Scott and his family for years, from my childhood, so it was a real personal pleasure to capture this wedding,  and I felt really honoured to have been asked!!   Plus, it was at the fabulous Farleigh, a super venue that’s dear to my heart, a venue that is so supportive of me, by recommending me on a regular basis, which i’m so grateful for!

So Our lovely Cheryl got ready at home, and considering how many bridesmaids she had, it was such a calm house, and of course if makes my job so easy when they’re all as gorgeous as these lovely ladies!!

With everyone ready and looking stunning, off I went to meet Scott at the church, All Saints in Sanderstead, Surrey.  Good to see you scrub up pretty darn well too Mr!!  Their vows were said, their rings exchanged, and with a lovely ceremony, their happily ever after was off too a flying start!

We arrived at the very brilliant Farleigh, which boasted an amazing rustic makeover.  There wasn’t a single thing that these guys hadn’t thought of!  Hats off to Sam Donovan I beleive, it’s certainly a huge bonus when your sister just so happens to be the wedding co-ordinator at your venue.

After chilling out in the gorgeous sunshine, with drinks, cookies, milkshakes, scones, we were ready to capture our posed photos.

Just lovely.  Off everyone ventured inside to start our gorgeous meal,  the food was delicious (rather fantastic bonus of my job i’d say, is that I get try out the food).  Farleigh has The Inked Chef on board, and his food is Delicious with a big fat capital D!!!  I love this time in the day, shooting from a distance, capturing the fun and laughter while guests mingle and chat at the tables.

Oh look! That last pic is me he he!  Gotta love a guest who steals my camera.  The speeches were great,  tears were certainly shed!!

So, the wedding breakfast came to a close, and everyone ventured outside, the sun was fading, and the funky lights came into action, which made for a lovely atmosphere for the guests, whilst they were entertained by the magician.

And the evening shenanigans were off, with the dancefloor packed, but then I wouldn’t expect anything less when they have the fabulous Dean DJ Elite to keep the music flowing!

Scott and Cheryl, I soooooo enjoyed capturing your wedding, it was an absolute pleasure to be part of your day.  Thanks to Farleigh for looking after me so well.

Thanks for reading, if you’d like to have a chat about the photography for your own day, please do give me a call for a chat.

Take care

Danielle & Duncan’s Autumn Wedding At Coltsford Mill

Sunday, January 15th, 2017

I luckily met Danielle & Duncan with all their family at the Coltsford Mill Wedding Fair.  Coltsford Mill is a venue with absolutely everything you could ever need.  A stunning venue with a contemporary barn, set in the grounds of an old Mill, with Lakes and waterfalls, bridges over streams, the list is endless.  I absolutely love working here.

Danielle got ready in the gorgeous cottage set within the grounds of Coltsford. surrounded by her parents and bridesmaids, very peaceful, and really quite a calm morning.   I do love it when a bride gets ready at the same venue, it means I can pop down and spend a lovely bit of time with the groomsmen too.

There are a couple of options where you can get married here, and these guys chose to tie the knot in the Mill Room, a cute cosy experience with the old mill as the backdrop.

It was such a lovely ceremony.  Off we popped outside, the weather was kind to us, and we were able to take all our pictures outside in the grounds.

I was absolutely in my element shooting Danielle and Duncan, I really could have taken images of them for the entire day.  They are stunning, and get along so well.  We didn’t venture very far off into the grounds, as the ground was a little muddy, so we stayed close to the barn, and made use of the beautiful autumnal colours.

 

After our posed images we ventured into the main barn, for our meal.  A bit of a bonus with my job, is that I get to taste all the scrumptious food, and trust me, at Coltsford Mill, it is always delicious.

The speeches were really funny, Dad, Duncan and his 2 best men did really well, and the laughter was loud.

Tom & Kirsten’s Vintage Meadowcroft Festival Wedding at the Red Barn

Friday, January 30th, 2015

So, this was a wedding with a difference, a vintage festival wedding!!  It was so cute.  Kirsten had though of absolutely everything, from personalised festival wrist bands, to cd’s of their favourite music, there wasn’t anything they hadn’t thought about.  Tom & Kirsten married at St Johns Church in Old Coulsdon, a lovely ceremony with tea and home made cakes to follow.  Then off everyone travelled on the big red bus, to one of my favourite venues, The Red Barn, an extremely quirky barn, situated near Lingfield in Surrey.

Everyone gathered in the paddock, for drinks, games, and even a spot of cricket.  Such a relaxed atmosphere. Dinner was served inside the barn, and the evening entertainment was provided by Dad on the decs, a job very well done indeed!!     Take a look through the images, it was a fantastic day.

Live, Love & Laugh – Ali’s family Shoot

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

I loved loved loved this shoot!! Ali, is a dear friend of mine, and as ladies go….. she’s a pretty lovely one!!  One of those individuals who’s as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out, and has the loveliest of sparkles about her, even when times have gotten a little tough for this lady, that smile never leaves her face!! One of lifes true diamonds!!

So, Ali asked if we could get a few images, and showed me some shots that another friend had had taken.  Always a tricky one, trying to acheive what another photographer already has, because every photographer has their own unique stlye, and to be true to ourselves we have to do it our own way, we’re a stubborn bunch!! :-) But, I had a good idea of the kind of feel Ali wanted to acheive!

Have a little peek, we kept the kids focused with a few bribes, well actually quite a lot of bribes, and a few funky props, but they were brilliant……..

 

Jacqui & Joe Marry at Coltsfold Mill

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Back in May 2012, I had the pleasure in photographing this gorgeous couples wedding.  What a lovely couple they were too, and I have to say 1 thing, Darn I wished I had this womens genes, because Jacqui was absolutely gorgeous (and Jo was too mind you!!).

Coltsford Mill is based in Oxted, Surrey, and actually has an old mill within the grounds and an immaculate Barn, definately one of my favourite wedding locations.

The ceremony was lovely, with readings from her Grandsons which brought a tear to everyones eyes.  I didn’t want to stop taking pictures of this lovely couple, and with Joe’s sense of humour…. I didn’t stop giggling all day!

If you love the flowers, have a chat with Shelley from Muscari Whites, her work is always amazing.

The Barn at Coltsford mill is just perfect for your meal, the light that floods in through the windows makes it very easy work for me…. I love it.  Jacqui and Joe were really creative and had some really quirky little ideas…… loved the table plan…. I want one!

Laughter…. the perfect recipe for a happy life!!!!

Summer weddings….. that early evening period when the the room is being turned around for the evenuing party…..my absolute favourite time of the day!!!  The light at this time of the day is just perfect in everyway possible, oh, and the fact that the wine has been flowing generally helps too! ;-)

Grandchildren…. you’ve gotta just love them!  Just like their Nanny, absolutely full of smiles and laughter!!  Amazing what amusement a little accessory like a hat can bring….

And then to complete a very very perfect day for 2 seriously adorable people, the first dance….. followed by some seriously funky moves to get the dancing going!  I wish you all the luck and happiness in the world guys xxxx
