Greenwich, London

I had never been to the beautiful park in Greenwich, so exploring in the golden light with the leaves turning was a treat. Anneliese and Will chose a Greenwich engagement shoot as they hold this area close to their hearts. Though they have moved away now, they lived here together for some time, and the park was a favourite spot to come to together.

Looking out of the city, in the peace above the buildings and tree tops, there is a change of pace. You can take a deep breath up there, and think clearly. I can see why they love it so much. Anneliese and Will met when they were children, but life took them in different directions until they both ended up in the city and found each other once again. There is something beautifully poetic to their tale, and the connection between them is so strong. I am very much looking forward to their big day next summer.

Ellie & Dory hold woodland close to their hearts, and from the start we had a Westonbirt Arboretum engagement shoot in mind. Bright, in the throws of autumn colour, we shared some quiet time off the beaten path, away from the crowds of families come to enjoy the spectacular scene.

Playing with the colour and the light, we could create a fitting backdrop for their incredible connection. As the daylight faded, encouraged to head homeward, we stopped for a hot chocolate to continue our conversations on their plans for their celebrations at the Matara Centre next year. The perfect end to our afternoon.

Beautiful, relaxed with a touch of the magical. Clare and Toby’s South Farm wedding was stunningly memorable. Clare said she knew their venue had to be South Farm when they saw the animals, and they went one step further, with duck herding as a surprise for their guests.

Their details were influenced by the woodland, from black berries in Clare’s bouquet to moss in the table centres. Dana Young created some wonderful floral displays which transformed the barn for the ceremony with wreaths of hops, then for the wedding breakfast, with gorgeous deep autumn colours and candles (made by Clare’s sister’s company).

The evening party was spectacular, with lively Jewish dancing kicking off the proceedings. Everyone was on the dance floor and having the best time. We captured the day with a video story (with stop motion sequences), capturing the energy of the day, with narration from Toby’s moving and heartfelt speech.

Clare & Toby are so beautifully matched. They complement each other, and together they are stronger. We feel very privileged to have been able to capture their celebrations.

Jessica and Tony are warm hearted and wonderful, and so the gathering of closest friends and family for their wedding celebrations in the gardens and barns of South Farm had the most lovely feel.

With autumn just around the corner, the gardens had begun to blush with the first oranges and reds, warmed by the afternoon sunshine. Wildwood Floral Events created bouquets of pretty pastels to complement the Jessica’s lace gown and the lilac bridesmaids dresses. Jess and Tony’s beautiful children, Elsie and Jacob, were dressed in their finest, and were a picture to behold.

Jess and Tony are the sort of people who make you feel good about the world. This was a relaxed, fun afternoon, celebrating the best of things. We wish them every happiness.
