An Islington Town Hall Ceremony

The happy couple chose to do a “First Look”; it really is a lovely moment to capture!This lovely couple booked me for just 90 minutes of coverage; definitely the shortest wedding I’ve covered! It wasn’t quite an elopement as there were a few guests at the wedding. It was a wonderfully personal and intimate ceremony, and I absolutely love documenting little weddings! Following the ceremony, we took some quick portraits around the corner before the happy couple headed off to lunch with their loved ones.

Next up is Alison & Matt’s big day and I can’t wait! You may remember them from their engagement shoot HERE.

Also, I have just overhauled the content of my website with more up to date work. It’s always so hard condensing images! I have also updated other sections such as the “Featured In” page and have added a general compilation porfolio alongside the featured Weddings (all of these can be viewed in the “Weddings” drop down menu). If you would like to view the images in a speedier fashion (once you are in a gallery, you can use the arrows in the bottom left corner to quickly click through). Feel free to have a browse HERE.

I hope you all have a lovely week! xx

Such a sweet wedding! Very personal and warm photos, love it!

Coming Soon ~ Michelle & James at Southend Barns

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of shooting Michelle & James’ stunning wedding at Southend Barns in Chichester. After 16 years together, Michelle and James finally said “I do”, and they couldn’t have had asked for a more beautiful day. Michelle & James thought of so many personal details for their guests and it was clear to see what a wonderful time everyone was having.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Thank you for inviting me to photograph your day and for making us feel so welcome. I am still dreaming about those brownies! I can’t wait to share the full set of images with you.

Next up I will be shooting Alison & Matt’s wedding before heading off to Tuscany for Sophie & Simon’s big day! May is set to be a great month! Happy Easter everyone. xx

Coming Soon ~ A Little Islington Wedding & A Little Update

Yesterday, I shot a lovely little 90 min wedding just down the road from me in Islington. I love documenting small and intimate weddings whenever I can; there’s something so special about them. It’s always great shooting at Islington Town Hall and on this particular occasion it was lovely to be able to walk to the wedding, and then walk home! I love the light you get in Islington Town Hall, especially in this little corridor. The second shot is the moment just after the ceremony. The full post of this little wedding will be coming soon.

The blog has been a bit quiet over the off season as I’ve focused on my wonderful baby girl as well as other aspects of my business. But I am now looking forward to the 2014 wedding season and the wonderful moments and images it has in store. I am also working on overhauling the content of my official website, so keep a look out for that soon. There will also be some upcoming wedding blog and magazine features coming out soon, which I can’t wait to share! Next month we are off to Tuscany to photograph a beautiful wedding; it will be my first time shooting in Italy, and I can’t wait! Have a great weekend everyone! xx

Dance Like No One is Watching ~ Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your loved one/s! Here’s a little sneak preview from Annie & Rich’s wedding to bring some love to the blog today! xx

Anna, Gareth & Baby Lucas Theo

It was an absolute privilege to have photographed Anna & Gareth’s wedding in Switzerland, their pregnancy and now their first days with baby Lucas. I wanted to include some of the shots I took of their maternity shoot. This whole series is in black and white as I think it works well; lending a true, timeless feel to the photographs.I didn’t want to capture anything with a staged or posed feeling. I just wanted these photos to feel real and in the moment.I love this shot of Anna, Gareth & Lucas. Such a tender moment. There is nothing more precious than the first few days with your newborn! I remember it well!I just love the opposing expressions in the shot below!Anna’s parents were staying with them so I captured a few portraits of the happy grandparents!I had never done a baby shoot before having a child of my own and I really think that being a mother myself, proved to be a great advantage when doing this shoot, as I don’t think I would have known what to do with a baby before having Ava! It brought back lots of memories of my first days as a new mother. It’s truly the most daunting, scary, wonderful, exhausting, emotional, and tremendous experience all in one. Having experienced this myself, has led to my interest in capturing this special time for other couples. It’s particularly exciting when it also happens to be one of my wedding couples!

I am now offering pregnancy/maternity couples shoots, family, baby and newborn shoots. It’s a new path for me but I am absolutely loving it and hope to bring my documentary style combined with timeless, and elegant portraiture, which I adopt with wedding photography, to these types of shoots as well. Although I have chosen full black and white for this blog post, of course I include colour shots as well! I was simply drawn to the feel of the black and white images for this post.

I have loved getting to know Anna & Gareth over the past 18 months and they are now good friends. I am so excited that they are on the journey of parenthood and wish them all the happiness in the world! Here’s to a full night of sleep some time in the future.;)xx

A lovely natural approach to newborn photography, and so nice to get granny and granddad involved too.

A beautiful set of images, all in your inimitable and unique style. Just like your wedding pictures, you always capture those special moments of joy and happiness, including those of the baby! Of course, I think the images of our Very Beautiful Ava are the best but I might be biased on that one. Dad xx

Absolutely beautiful Dominique! So timeless and peaceful. And Lucas is such a gorgeous baby boy. I remember the lovely photos from their wedding and think it’s wonderful that you are capturing all of these special moments in their lives. Congratulations to them both. x
