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

John & Carol have a Coulsdon Manor Wedding

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Once every so often, I cover a midweek wedding, where I’m only needed for a couple of hours.

Back to a venue which I’m very familiar with, Coulsdon Manor, set in acres of beautifully kept countryside, with the golf course as a stunning back drop.  The team here at the Coulsdon Manor are fantastic.

Have a little look at John & Carols lovely intimate wedding…..


A great afternoon!  If you would like to find out more about wedding coverage, please do give me a call.

Thanks for reading,

Take care

Sam & Jason have an amazing PINK wedding!!!

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Woweegazowee, I’ve never had a pink Bride!!!  Great fun, Sam was like a little Barbie Doll!! :-)

Samantha & Jason tied the knot at my local church, St Marys in Addington Village, a stunning church, over 900 years old, with the most ornate interior.  Only thing was they had serious problems with the roof, so a huge part of the church was unusable covered in scaffolding! So with the wedding party all scrunched up into 1/3 of the church, it was a very cosy ceremony to say the least.  A lovely ceremony indeed though, late afternoon at 4.30.

We popped across the road, to the green for our groups shots, and then off they went in their gorgeous car, provided by Shirley Chauffeurs, to the Club Langley in Beckenham for a lovely relaxed party.  With bouncy castles, and a multi talented DJ, who was actually Heather Trotts (in Eastenders) brother!!  Great character, who kept everyone entertained, with his higher or lower card games, and YMCA dances!!

Have a little look for yourself……





A really great party, with some fantastic characters, it was a pleasure meeting you all, make sure we keep in touch guys.

Thanks for taking the time to read, if you would like to find out more about my wedding packages, please do get in contact.

Take care

Jean and Andrew marry at Oaks Farm Barn, Shirley

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

It’s funny, when I shoot a wedding, it’s not neccessarily the venue, or the details that make a wedding special (although I must say this wedding had it all!!!)… for me, it’s the people and their gorgeous characters.  Jean and Andrew were a fantastic couple, and all of their children also had lovely personalities….. It was an absolute pleasure for me to share their day with them.

April showers were once again firmly making an appearance, and the day started off looking like this!!

Oaks Farm Barn situated in Shirley has everything you could ever want as a venue, definately one of my favorite venues.

And then my lucky rain angel who looks out for me, sorted out the weather, and made it possible to cover all my lovely shots outside!! , and this time I thought i’d use the more rusticy side of the venue for a few shots for a different change.


I wish you all the happiness in the world guys, not that you need it….. you make a fantastic couple xxx

If you are also getting married soon, please take a look at my wedding gallery, and I hope to chat with you soon.  Take care…. Pebble x
