Sam & Liam, just beautiful humans, married in June at The Lion Inn, Boreham. It’s one of my favourite pubs to eat at so I knew the food would be awesome and the bar in the new wing of the hotel is a gorgeous, Art Deco dream! I’d met Sam & Liam last year when they were Best Man and Bridesmaid for Lucy & Michael so it was extra special to be documenting for them too, and Lucy and Michael returned the favour! It was a really hot day and after the ceremony guests enjoyed drinks in the courtyard and we snuck off for a few portraits in and around the hotel before everyone was seated for dinner. Speeches were top notch (think you can see that by the photos!) and we got in a few more bonus portraits in the field next door as the sunset. Then, the brand new Mr & Mrs Bendall hit the dance floor! A fabulous wedding for a fabulous couple, thanks so much for having us Sam & Liam, we adored it all!

Carolyn & Francis, a stunning chapel ceremony at Charterhouse School followed by a DIY Village Hall Reception.

Carolyn and Francis were married at the beginning of June and chose the gorgeous Chichester Hall in Witley to hold their reception! I’ve shot a few weddings here now and it such a perfect village hall to really make your own! They opted to hold the ceremony at the very atmospheric South African Cloister in the grounds of the Charterhouse School, Godalming - the photos speaks for themselves I feel, it was such great choice (and the lighting was so lovely in there, which made me very happy!). Carolyn had really considered her guests and served delicious ice cream once everyone had made their way to Chichester Hall on what was a very warm day! We spent a little while taking some portraits together and then did a few relaxed group shots before I left them all to sit for their wedding breakfast and partying the night away! Thanks so much Carolyn & Francis for having me, its such a pleasure to visit your gorgeous part of the UK and you guys made me so welcome!

Stacey & Nick, an Intimate Wedding at Granary Estates with Gin inspired decor and lush Peonies

Stacey & Nick, an Intimate Wedding at Granary Estates with Gin inspired decor and lush Peonies

Stacey & Nick opted to have an intimate ceremony in the Flint Barn at the glorious Granary Estates, the space being perfect for a smaller number of guests. Stacey looked like a Hollywood goddess in her stunning Pronovias gown and Nick didn’t take his eyes off of her! We found a stunning wild flower field right next to the barns for some pretty perfect portraits before everyone sat for a delicious wedding breakfast in the wild flower adorned Granary Barn, finished to perfection with cute gin bottles and lush greenery! In the evening the newlyweds were joined by a huge crowd of friends to help them party the night away, kicked off in style by Granary Estates trademark confetti cannon! Huge congratulations again to you Stacey & Nick, it was an absolute joy to document your perfect day!

I remember meeting Molly & Frazer for a coffee when they booked and they chatted about everything they hoped their wedding would be and I just knew it would be an amazing celebration - very personal, super chilled and just full of fun, and well, that’s exactly what it was! Frazer loves orange and in honour of this you’ll see it running through the details - his tie, his socks (many of his friends also donned orange socks!) even some of the smoke bombs we used in the evening. The awesome tables and chairs were from Anthology Vintage Hire, but many of the other decorations you’ll see were made by Frazer himself, including all of the signage, the copper frame to hang the polaroids from, the donut wall and those incredible LOVE letters! Isn’t he clever!! Molly thought outside the box and chose a stunning dip dye dress by Lucy Can’t Dance which totally complimented her stunning hair! The guests enjoyed amazingly good grub by Weirdough Pizza & I’ll Bring Dessert and they were kept refreshed by the always fabulous guys from Duck & Pheasant with their gorgeous horse box bar! Supplier dream team was finished off with music by Fox and Braces who kicked off the party with absolute finesse! What a couple and what a day! Get your pinning finger ready - you’re going to need it!

Naomi & Will chose the always stunning Granary Estates in Woodditton for their wedding celebrations. I adore this venue and you’ll see why when you start to scroll the photographs - its rustic charm with a modern twist is venue perfection! On the day it was raining when we arrived but that certainly didn’t dampen anybody’s morning and, by the time the ceremony rolled around, the rain had done the decent thing and cleared up! The decor was simply divine with tonnes of greenery including the most adorable table plan made up of potted plants (totally ‘Pinable’!) and beautiful signage and stationery by the very talented Bewilderly. After the ceremony we took the newlyweds off for a bit of portraiture which Naomi and Will grinned like Cheshire Cats the whole way through. Speeches were so good and very emotional with all the laughs and tears you’d want and we nipped back out in the evening light for a few more, relaxed (tipsy!) portraits before Naomi & Will hit the dance floor complete with Granary Estates famous confetti cannon! What a day guys, I’m so thrilled I could document it for you! Here’s what they had to say….

“Thank you so much for sending the photos over, they are so lovely! Even more amazing than we thought they would be, if that’s even possible?! We must have watched the highlights slideshow about 10 times already! We honestly are so happy with them and cannot wait to fill our house with all the happy memories from the day”.

An awesome wedding made even better by working with these amazing suppliers - you all rock!
