Parakeets & leaves {Ingrid & Stu}

We walked among the wind swept trees of Richmond Park, surrounded by the green of parakeets and leaves above our heads. I’ve known Ingrid and Stu a little for some years, as they are close friends of a dear friend of mine, but this day was the first I had spent proper time with the two of them. Its lovely to say how much I enjoyed their company – they are so thoughtful and caring, and it was special for me to gain a deeper understanding of who they are together. A few moments of their beautiful connection follow.

Fine Art Print Box {Claudia & Benj}

I believe holding and looking at images one by one is a very different experience to viewing a visual story of images in an album. I love creating fine art albums, but I think there is a place for something else too – a more accessible product that allows you to get lost in a single image. A few years ago I developed a special and bespoke fine art print box for my couples, handmade by a local craftsman from oak, containing 30 fine art prints of their choice.

The box can be etched to personalise its look, and I absolutely loved the design Claudia and Benj wanted for their box. They got married at Dartmoor Zoo last year and Claudia designed all their motifs and stationary. The beauty of the wood grain comes through in this etching – I just had to share it!

Hampstead green {Ellie & Andrew}

When I met Ellie and Andrew in St Pancras Station many months ago, I immediately loved them. They are both so open and warm, I just wanted to share more time with them.

Now with days rather than months left till their wedding day, we met in Hampstead Heath to record this time.

The rhododendrons, shining green from the morning dew, gave us our backdrop. Andrew’s banter and Ellie’s disarming smile gave us our light. We laughed and talked, and Ellie shared with me secret whispers about her stunning wedding attire….

These are the warmest of souls and I frankly cannot wait until their celebrations.

Elephants & waterfalls {Vivian & Philip}

Vivian and Philip had spent the morning at Sezincote House, meeting with their wedding suppliers, planning their day, and after a brief revitalising tea, they took me back there to show of the beauty of the surroundings. The Sezincote Estate is quite breathtaking, with its Neo-Mughal architecture and expansive manicured gardens. It was designed by Samuel Pepys Cockerell in 1805, and being there has all the sense of stepping back into a different time.

With all the weather we have had of late, the day was very kind to us. Late afternoon sun shone through the pines as we picked our way amongst the waterfalls of the lower gardens. I really enjoyed spending time with Vivian and Philip….they have a great sense of fun and interest in everything around them. They have a wonderful, real, bond between them, that made me feel very safe. Vivian shares my appreciation for the importance of how things feel, and we spend some good time just talking about paper, which made me happy indeed.

I am very much looking forward to seeing those grounds filled with their love ones in celebration of their union later this year.
