Emine & Ariel’s Pre Wedding Shoot at Rochester Castle

Some days I forget how lucky I am to have some of the best locations in Kent and Essex right on my doorstep. Rochester Castle is literally 15 miles away from my home and I’ve never even been there before. What a mistake that was, because quite frankly it is a beaut! (as they say here in Essex).

Chloe and Nicholas’ Alternative East London Wedding at Holborn Studios

I love how different weddings can be. Each with its own twist that really represents how amazing a couple are.

Janene + Steve’s Engagement | Bedfords Park

Janene + Steve’s Pre-Wedding Shoot | Bedfords Park

One of my favourite parts of being a wedding photographer in Essex is capturing some amazing smiles during a pre-wedding couples shoot.

Bellinter House Wedding: Emma & Shane’s Glitter and Gold Themed Day

So pleased to share Emma and Shane’s gorgeous Bellinter House Wedding. This beautiful Georgian mansion sits on the south bank of the River Boyne.  Nestled in acres of the lush Irish countryside and within sight of ancient Tara it’s stunning. Despite Bellinter House being built back in 1750, it oozes cool.  I can totally see why Emma and Shane were so excited about having their wedding day there.

Alexandra & Darren | Mulberry House Wedding

Bride and Groom hugging after getting married at Mulberry House in Chelmsford

You’ve got to love those summer weddings, when the beautiful last light wraps itself so gorgeously around a pair of newly weds as they hug the afternoon away. The grounds at this venue are superb and the venue has been subtly converted into a hotel. The building offers a combination of traditional Georgian architecture with modern 21st-century touch. Along with careful tree planting, the grounds make an ideal backdrop for a Wedding day. Some of the original trees are over 150 years old, don’t you know.
