I mean just look at the last shot above, it pretty much sums up how happy and in love these two are! All in all, a truly amazing day to document and a wonderful wedding to have been a part of.

Hannah & Ben have impeccable style; I thought Hannah’s dress and Ben’s suit, were timeless, elegant and perfectly suited to the feel of Hengrave Hall. They had thought of so many lovely little details and it all came together perfectly on the day. I really hope to shoot at Hengrave Hall again; there’s so much light in this venue and the Bridal suite was a perfect space for the preparation photos.

I received the most amazing email from Hannah & Ben last night, and I’m truly over the moon that they love their photos. A big thank you for inviting me to capture your day; it’s been so lovely getting to know you both and I wish you all the best for the future!

Clark & Palmer Wedding Films documented Hannah & Ben’s day; they are wonderfully discreet and fun videographers, do check them out!

I am currently in the midst of working on my new website which I can’t wait to share in the early autumn, so keep a look out. Although I’m keeping my logo and branding, we have gone for a complete redesign with the site and an overhaul of the galleries with lots of new work. Speaking of fresh starts, the work on our new house has begun and it seems like another massive project I’ve got going on! Coming from a London apartment, we have got to source furniture and accessories for a house, which is both very exciting and overwhelming. Not to mention we are putting in a brand new family bathroom so we need to pick all of that from scratch. I can’t wait to realise our vision for the house and see it all come together. Of course I will be documenting the process with my camera…I think it’s going to be a pretty darned good transformation, fingers crossed anyway! xx

    To-die-for elegance!! Absolutely stunning! Hannah is a vision. x

    Dominique!!! I would leave 1000 comments on this blog post because it’s truly beautiful! Wow. The way you captured this wedding makes me want to be the bride in it! It’s simply amazing and every shot just captured the perfect moment and the joy of the event! I hope Hannah reads this comments and falls in love with her wedding images even more, because they are so beautiful and fairy tale like! I feel like your sweet personality just bleeds through each one of them and Hannah just has the most amazing taste, those bridesmaids dresses and her own gown, are to die for! Thank you for sharing with the world! Lots of love from sunny California ;)

The little streets of Rye are so quintessentially English; I really enjoyed using them for the portraits of Fiona & Sofian. Their style was impeccable and worked perfectly with the setting of this lovely wedding. I loved Sofian’s classic style; the bow tie and slim fit suit worked perfectly with Fiona’s dress. As you can tell, I had such an amazing time capturing their day! Fiona & Sofian, I am so pleased you love your photos and I wish you all the best for your future together!

There was another dream team working on this wedding. The amazing blooms were, once again, by Bloomingayles. I absolutely love working with Gayle; her bouquets continually amaze me! The amazing cakes were by Vintage Rose Cupcakes. Fiona’s stunning dress was by Reem Acra; the detail was wonderful, and the incredible heels were from Christian Louboutin. Fiona’s hair was done by the talented Gemma Sutton.

I am currently working hard on my new website/blog, brochure and stationary, can’t wait to share it with you all. This weekend I’m in Islington and Stoke Newington for a lovely London wedding. xx

    Beautiful work, as always! The portraits are particularly stunning!

  • Sophie - July 24, 2014 - 2:03 pm

    So beautiful! I’m completely in love with Fiona’s dress and bouquet. So elegant. x

    Fiona had such a dream team for her wedding. These are gorgeous Dominique. What incredible photos to have for generations to see.

Hair was by the very talented Elbie Van Eeden and makeup was by the lovely Carolanne Armstrong. I think you will agree they did an amazing job. I just loved Ellie’s soft waves and beautiful hairpiece by Hermione Harbutt! The incredible flowers were by Gayle of Bloomingayles and as always she did a truly amazing job; I absolutely loved Ellie’s bouquet. The stunning cake was by Andi Freeman Cakes and the smell was just amazing! The lovely videographers were A Hint of Mint. All in all everyone worked together to make Ellie and Luke’s wedding a truly wonderful day. It was my first time shooting at Bradbourne House and I loved the spots we found with tall grass; it was perfect for portraits. The whole venue is full of light and I just loved the blue of the reception room. Ellie beamed the whole day; every time I looked at her she was smiling and enjoying her day!

A big thank you to Ellie & Luke for making me feel so welcome and for the incredible feedback I received when they saw their photos. It made my day!

I am currently working on a brand new web and blog design; so together with all my editing, weddings and visits to Gymboree & Tumble Tots with my little Ava, it’s a very busy time indeed! Not to mention we are in the middle of moving and renovating our brand new house! xx

    Sooo beautiful! I can’t get enough of the florals in this wedding! And Ellie’s hair is absolutely stunning. x

DSC_2817DSC_1367DSC_1655DSC_3351-3DSC_1861I love the way Hannah’s sister is looking at them during the ceremony.DSC_3425DSC_3518DSC_3727DSC_3893DSC_2925DSC_3693DSC_3277DSC_4697This was one truly incredible wedding to document. The amount of happiness, love and laughter was just wonderful and everywhere I turned, there was a smiling face and lots of laughter. Hannah & Ben are so very much in love; it’s so clear to see in the way they look at each other and talk about each other. They are incredibly affectionate which made capturing their portraits so lovely for me! This was my first time shooting at Hengrave Hall and I just loved the abundance of light and the elegant feel to the venue. A massive congratulations to Hannah & Ben; I am so grateful to have been a part of their day. Have an amazing time on the Amalfi Coast!

Hannah & Ben invited the brilliant Clark & Palmer Wedding Films to film their day; they were incredibly discreet and fun to work with! Check out their site if you are looking for some great videographers.

Much more from this wedding coming soon! In the mean time keep a look out for Ellie & Luke’s wedding, coming to the blog this week. xx

    Wow wow! Just love it. It’s a mix of film looking images and a nice editorial approach! I just love it. I need to shoot less wide open, these shots looks great ;). Love your work Dominique. ;)
