Last November I shot a wedding at the stunning Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire. The bride Ludmila's sister had referred me from her friend's Lianna wedding I shot the previous year. It's always nice to shoot weddings with familiar faces and when I met up with Ludmila for a chat before the big day I could tell it would be a fun and chilled out wedding. It was a crisp Autumn day, complete with a gorgeous sunset and fireworks in the evening - perfect as it was the 5th November! Ludmila and Karnell were clearly enjoying themselves from start to finish and the speeches from their family were a delight to listen too. The couple then pulled out some impressive dance moves for their first dance and the dance floor was packed with everyone having a great time.
During the Summer I travelled up to Northampton for Amy and Adam's wedding at the lovely Dodford Manor. It was forecast rain but the skies stayed dry and in the evening, we captured the couple against a gorgeous sunset. It was an imitate wedding and the moment I saw Amy and Adam with their friends and family, I could see how much they meant to everyone.
Amy's dad Barry had her in tears with his touching speech, playing back audio clips of when Amy was a little girl as well as from her late granddad, which was a special moment. Adam's best man Paul put on a slide show of hilarious photo-shopped images of Adam, which I'm sure Adam and the guests enjoyed! It was a wonderful day, full of touching and funny moments and I'm so happy I got to be a part of it.
It's not everyday you get married at the historic Crypt at Canterbury Cathedral, for Morwenna and Josh they had the privilege and honour to have their wedding at the Crypt. Their special day started with Morwenna and her 10 bridesmaids getting ready at a lovely cottage, whilst Josh enjoyed brunch with his 19 groom-mens. That has to be the biggest wedding party I've seen so far! Safe to say it was the start of a lively, happy and full filled day.
The Crypt was a majestic setting as Morwenna and Josh exchanged their vows. Even though the heavens opened and poured down after the ceremony, this did not dampen them and their guests mood. Everyone descended to the marquee in Stodmarsh and enjoyed the barrels of ale and jazz band playing. Josh also organised a surprise bag piper for the newly wed's entrance to honor his Scottish heritage. The sun come through and the party was in full swing. Thank you for letting me be apart of this incredible day!

I've been working on another fun behind the scenes shoot with British jewellery brand Chrysalis. We shot in a studio in London on a hot Summer's day and styled 12 amazing looks. The jewellery range is a lovely mix of spiritual and boho style pieces, think delicate trinkets and charms in mixed metals. The video showcases the brand current campaign style all with an effortless femininity from the gorgeous model Hannah. We also shot a Q&A video with Hannah and it was fun to hear about her lifestyle. If you're after a promo or creative video, feel free to get in touch I love working on creative projects like these!
It was such a pleasure shooting Thuy and Charlie's wedding at Longstowe Hall in Cambridge. The venue is stunning from the tumbling wisteria on the buildings to the ceremony held outdoors on the island. It was a picture perfect day complete with the most gorgeous sunset, great for those golden hour footage! It was an intimate and relaxed day and it was lovely to hang out with the wedding party and hear all the wonderful speeches. Thank you for letting me capture this special day, hope you enjoy the highlights.
