Gina and Dave had the most gorgeous weather for their wedding this summer at Swinton Park. I was very honoured to be the only guest! They had a lovely intimate ceremony with just the two of them, me, and a couple of the Swinton Park hotel staff. We then had an hour or so to explore the grounds with no guests to rush back to, and glowy, lovely light. Perfect!

Beth and David are quite possibly the nicest couple on the planet. We went to the woods at Sutton on the Forest for their engagement session, which looked gorgeous in the Autumn light, even though we had to sit out a bit of an Autumn shower. Their wedding is in May next year, and if it’s half as nice as they are, it’s going to be a corker.
There’s nothing quite like a weekend at my parents house – it’s my favourite place in the world. Always chaotic, noisy and full of life (that’s what you get with a family of 9) there are also peaceful spots in the garden and lots of cups of tea made by Mum, who tirelessly looks after everyone and especially loves having a baby around again (but isn’t so keen on being photographed).
Rhiannon’s 15th Birthday cake – it’s a longstanding family tradition to have a cake with a shape!
My little big brother Dan and his lovely girlfriend Emily
The light was too good to miss – Lucy and her squeeze Ollie
Hannah and Mark had a dreamy country marquee wedding, with tons of bunting and plenty of home made elderflower cordial, not to mention afternoon tea and a whole tree inside the marquee. Add stunning weather and lovely, glowy Autumn light, and you have a photographers ideal wedding. I don’t think it gets much better than that!
Suzy and Mark’s wedding is the first one I’ve photographed where the guests were given kazoos to play in the church. How could it not be an amazing wedding after that! Mark had arranged for the gospel choir to play ‘All You Need in Love’ as a surprise for Suzy at the beginning of the service. It got everything off to a great start for a really relaxed and fun day. My job was easy!
I have rather a lot of catching up to do with my blog, lots of things will be coming soon!
For now here is Debbie and her gorgeous bump, we had the most lovely light and I so enjoyed photographing her, I even got a bit of bump envy ;-)
I can’t wait to meet Debbie and Gavin’s baby in a month or two, photos to follow!
Simon and Louise’s engagement shoot was the rainiest one I’ve ever done. It was literally pouring down. These photos go to show rain isn’t a problem, I really enjoyed this even though I was soaked!
I went to school with Simon and so these photos were taken in my parents garden in Northamptonshire although the rain meant we had to mostly hide in the barn!
Lizi and Rob are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet, and their wedding was seriously stunning. They’d thought of all those little extra’s that make a wedding fun to attend and great to photograph. Feast your eyes!
