Wedding >> Shelby & Rob’s Bijou London Winter Wedding

I’m excited to be able to share this lovely bijou wedding I second shot for my friend Cris Rossi a few weeks ago.  Shelby & Rob had such a fun and laid back day, and I think it really shows in the photographs!

We turned up early to catch Shelby’s bridal preparations, and I have to confess, bridal prep is one of my favourite parts of the entire day.   I love all that pent-up emotion and nervous excitement, and the way that everything is laid out and ready to go.

I’m not very knowledgeable about flowers and I have no idea what this type of flower is called but doesn’t it make for a really unique boutonniere?

And, as a cat and dog lover, Shelby and Rob’s house was an absolute blast to photograph….how cute?

This is one of my favourite photos – Shelby and her flower girls calmly having a game of ring a ring of roses while waiting for the Registrar’s interview.

Even though it was crisply cold day, all the guests gave us their best smiles for the group photos….

Well, almost all the guests. 😉  (but it WAS rather cold)

Fortunately it wasn’t long before everyone moved to the evening reception which was gloriously cosy and candlelit.

Ruby joined in for the first dance…

And it wasn’t long before the kids took over the rest of the dancefloor. Love it.

 

Thanks to Cris for having me second shoot and a big, big thank you to Shelby & Rob for letting me share their day with them.  You guys are so much fun and I wish you every happiness in the future!

WEDDING >> Lizzie & Simon’s Vintage Tea Party Wedding

A few weeks ago I had the  pleasure of second shooting Lizzie & Simon’s vintage tea party wedding for Kathryn of Kathryn Andrews Photography.   I’d been told that it was going to be a day stuffed to the brim with gorgeous details…. and WOW.  Was it ever!  From the mis-matched vintage crockery to the homemade (impressed much!?) heart-shaped rainbow coloured sugar cubes, everything was just breathtakingly lovely. That kind of care and love really speaks volumes and though I didn’t know the bride or groom before stepping into that marquee, by the end of the day I really got the feeling that there wasn’t a single thing there that wasn’t entirely them.

I could tell you about the beautiful little country church that had daisies running riot around it, or the croquet and ice-cream on the lawn, or even the horse-drawn trap that took Lizzie & Simon from the church to the reception…but I think I’ll just let the photos do the talking!
Now, aren’t these colours just perfect for an English summer wedding?


Homemade heart-shaped pastel-rainbow sugar cubes! Gorgeous!



Lizzie’s dress was absolutely breathtaking and it suited her so well.


And how about the incredible vintage veil?

A big thank you to Kathryn for having me along to second shoot with her, it was so much fun and I’m really grateful for the opportunity.  Also a massive thank you to Lizzie and Simon for their generosity and hospitality.  Not only did they let me share their special day with them, but I was lucky enough to enjoy the gorgeous tea party spread…they even had me on the table plan! How lovely is that?  I really wish you guys a lifetime of happiness together.
