A short stroll from their wedding venue, Jen and Duncan had noticed the first of this year’s bluebells stretching their blooms above the bracken. Always keen to go off road and explore, Duncan led the way into the secluded, peaceful woodland, where the first leaves of the year were dancing in the morning sunlight.

There is a very quiet, personal side to the connection between these two – something rare and very special. It’s seen in glimpses between the fun and laughter, the exploring and the playful. I am really excited for their celebrations this summer – it’s going to be a beautiful affair.

A glorious day in London Town. Sunshine and rolling white clouds giving us beautiful, varied light. Up amongst the skyline, Sarah and Ben showed me where it all began – the rooftop where they had their first date, overlooking the majesty of St Paul’s Cathedral. From this viewpoint we could see the Shard, where Ben proposed, and Sarah said yes.

They come to the city often, so Sarah and Ben wanted me to capture what they love most about London, as a backdrop to their memories of this time. These two are sweet, confident and there’s a real sparkle in their eyes. The closeness between them comes across. I’m made up to be documenting their celebrations in Northamptonshire this summer.

Hertfordshire, England


Roberta and Mark’s move back to England from Australia was greeted with the awakening of Spring. With the first of the new leaves unfurling on the trees, we met at the Ashridge Estate, and over a mug of tea on a bench in the sunshine, we caught up on their plans for their South Farm wedding this Summer.

These two are kind, genuine people. I felt privileged to be shown a little of their connection and hear of their dreams and plans for a future unfolding with all the beauty of this clear Spring day.

Babington House, Somerset


The Church of St Margaret, adjacent to Babington House is a stunning is a Grade I listed building. I’ve been lucky enough to document weddings by candlelight there. It’s intimate atmosphere is  unique, and last summer I had the great privileged to document a private Christening there. With just their closest friends, this family had the most beautiful and personal ceremony, followed by champagne and cake in the gorgeous library at Babington House.

Flowers by Passion created delicate displays so fitting to the occasion, and I wanted to showcase the beauty of how they dressed the Church for this Babington House christening.

Melbourn, Cambridgeshire


Amy & Paul wanted to get married close to the water so Sheene Mill‘s position, right over the river, was perfect. This was a classic country wedding in the depths of Cambridgeshire, and their celebrations were very personal and poignant.

It had been touch and go all morning and with umbrellas at the ready, they forged on with their outdoor wedding. The storm gave way to glorious sunshine for their reception, and we walked in the meadows, Amy barefoot amongst the buttercups, in the last of the evening sun. Amy’s Sophia Tolli dress looked stunning, and Alison at Wildwood Floral Events created a romantic yet natural country feel to Amy’s bouquet.

Here I share a few precious moments from their celebrations.
