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. ;)

Hannah & Ben came down to London for their shoot and we headed to a little spot I found in Hampstead Heath. I just love shooting here; the tall grass, trees, and beautiful light make for a wonderful setting. It looks like they have the whole heath to themselves! Hannah & Ben were up for everything I suggested and were complete naturals in front of the camera. They just enjoyed kissing and cuddling and I snapped away! I can’t wait for their wedding in a couple of weeks.

I’m currently editing lots of wonderful weddings which I can’t wait to share on the blog soon; it’s a busy period at the moment but I love having so many weddings and shoots on the horizon. We have just moved out of our London flat as we embark on a new family adventure. It’s been very bittersweet as I have loved my time in Islington, but we are very much looking forward to our new house project. I hope to document the before and after, here on the blog!

So much happiness, love, and laughter combined with wonderful elegance and style! And of course to top it all off, an amazing Tuscan setting! Casa Cornacchi is a fantastic venue for a wedding weekend; guests can stay on site and have full use of the venue and grounds. It’s a great way to celebrate in style.

The atmosphere at this wedding was truly wonderful; everyone had spent the weekend together and so there was such a lovely, intimate feel to the day. Sophie & Simon had thought of so many lovely touches and details; everything looked stunning, but it was the happiness and laughter at this wedding which made it truly special.

I had the most incredible time documenting this wedding. Sophie & Simon trusted me completely and let me do my thing. I couldn’t have asked for a more lovely couple to work with. A big thank you to Sophie & Simon for everything over their wedding weekend and I am over the moon that you love your photos. I received the most wonderful email from Sophie & Simon this morning; it left me grinning from ear to ear and really made my day. Making my couples happy and receiving their wonderful feedback is why I do this job and why I love it so much.

Wishing this lovely couple all the best for their future together!

Next up on the blog will be Annie & Kevin’s intimate London wedding, as well as Hannah & Ben’s Hampstead Heath engagement shoot. xx

    Thank you for the kind words Dominique. As you know, these photos really took our breath away. And how surreal it is to see our faces on your blog! I’m a little bit starstruck…! ;) x

  • Hester - June 26, 2014 - 8:04 pm

    Wow. Am genuinely lost for words. This has to be your best ever, Dominique, and that’s saying something… They took MY breath away, so I can only imagine how Sophie & Simon felt! Magical job. xx

  • Essex Photographer - June 27, 2014 - 6:31 pm

    Absolutely beautiful photography so emotional and elegant, totally love the black and white photos.

    I am sure the couple and generations to come will love these images as much as there wedding day.

  • pen - July 4, 2014 - 3:33 pm

    Absolutely gorgeous. What a wonderful setting and celebration, and you have captured it perfectly. I love the filmic quality of your images.

DSC_0538DSC_1535DSC_1877DSC_0587DSC_0156DSC_0527These two looked like they had just stepped off of a film set; Fiona & Sofian looked absolutely stunning. Fiona’s Reem Acra dress was truly beautiful and the detail was just amazing. Although I have stayed at The George in Rye, it was my first time shooting there. It has such wonderful character; a really timeless, elegant feel, and the streets around Rye are wonderful for portraits. I absolutely loved shooting Fiona & Sofian’s wedding and can’t wait to share all the images from their day.

Gayle of Bloomingayles worked her magic again and created all the flowers from the day, including Fiona’s stunning bouquet. There are so many lovely details to come…I can’t wait to share the full post with you soon. Check back soon for Sophie & Simon’s Tuscan wedding. I think it might be a rather large blog post…

This week is a busy one for us; we are moving…more to come on that soon as I document our new house renovations! Have a great week everyone! xx
