Tipi Wedding | Lauren & Stephen

Lauren and Stephen's Tipi Wedding in the Cotswolds

I’m never sure if it is a Tipi Wedding, Teepee Wedding or Tepee Wedding, though according to google they are all perfectly acceptable to use. However you refer to them (I’m going with the first option), Lauren and Stephen’s Tipi Wedding in the Cotswolds was genuinely beautiful. This DIY wedding with a festival vibe had everything we look for as documentary wedding photographers. Interesting backdrops, a couple very much in love and wedding guests who know how to party and have a good time. Continue Reading

Hertfordshire Barn Wedding | Rebecca & Alistair


Rebecca and Alistair's Beautiful Barn Wedding in Hertfordshire

What an absolute pleasure to be part of this beautiful Hertfordshire Barn Wedding. I’ll be honest with you here. I’m not really a very sport savvy guy. I know that you kick a football and that you hit a baseball with a bat. But outside of that, I’m not really that sure what’s going on. However, I have heard that Rugby players like to party and this is most certainly true. A human pyramid competition between the girls and the guys. Yep, that’s right…and in case you’re wondering the girls won. Continue Reading

Nate and Kayleigh's Wedding at Hutton Poplars Hall in Brentwood, Essex

What an absolute pleasure to photograph Nate and Kayleigh’s wedding at Hutton Hall in Brentwood, Essex. Hutton Poplars Hall wasn’t a venue I knew much about before this wedding, and it really caught me by surprise, at how fantastic a venue it actually is. Continue Reading

Himani & Phil's Garden Marquee Wedding in Southend, Essex

When I met Himani and Phil earlier in the summer for their engagement shoot at Kensington Palace Gardens I knew the garden marquee wedding they were planning was going to be special.  They’d told me that their wedding day was going to be a real family-orientated affair and one of two weddings as they prepared to set-off to India for the second half of the celebrations.

Fawsley Hall | Annabelle & Oliver

Annabelle & Oliver's Wedding at Fawsley Hall

The Wedding Preparations

Annabelle opted to get ready at home with family and friends.  She told me she wanted a relaxed start to the morning of her wedding.  She got it.  It was filled with laughter, love and a few bubbles.  Makeup artist Brooke Savannah Stephens was on hand helping Annabelle and her bridal party get ready. Meanwhile, Oliver was getting ready with a few of his Groomsmen at Fawsley Hall; their chosen wedding venue.  The boys had a busy morning.  They were on hand helping to direct guests to the church and provide transport to those that needed it.

The Ceremony: St Mary The Virgin Church Fawsley

The wedding ceremony was held at the very intimate St Mary The Virgin Church.  This small, quaint and isolated Church lies in the grounds of Fawsley Hall.  It is only accessible by walking across what is essentially a field in the grounds of Fawsley Hall.  Watching the guests make their way was brilliant.  Furthermore, they all braved the cold and mud with smiles on their faces to celebrate in the marriage of Annabelle and Oliver.

The Reception : Fawsley Hall

Fawlsey Hall, itself is an amazing wedding venue to shoot at.  It looked particularly dramatic on their wedding day with the heavy overcast skies.  Set in it’s beautiful grounds it really is a wedding photographer’s dream. Following the ceremony, Annabelle and Oliver’s guests were treated to a drinks reception in The Tudor Hall.  This was such a great space.  Full of history, with wonderful light and amazing architecture.  To keep their guests entertained Annabelle and Oliver had George the Wedding Artist drawing up Wedding Caricatures. This was all done with the dulcet tones of Sax player Steve Ogorman playing in the background mixed in with a lot of laughter. During the wedding breakfast, there was an especially emotional speech from Annabelle’s dad and brilliantly funny speech from Oliver’s best man.

The Wedding Photographs

Whilst not originally our clients we were beyond happy to step in and help.  With their original photographer, a good friend of ours who was pregnant was unable to photograph their day, so we jumped at the chance when asked.  Annabelle & Oliver – you, your family and friends were an absolute pleasure to document.
