Thank you 2016

2016 was an enormous year for me, packed full of so many different experiences and personal and professional growth. I did 29 weddings and several events in some of the most beautiful places I have ever worked. We travelled to Sicily to capture celebrations on a sun drenched hill top, to Lyme Regis where the...

Twinkle little star {Molly & Tom}

I have been so excited about sharing this wedding. It was a real highlight to my year. Molly and Tom are two of the nicest, kindest and healthiest people you are ever likely to meet and I always feel wonderful when I think of them. I loved Molly from our very first conversation and knew...

Winter London {Henry & Siu Ki}

Henry and Siu Ki got married at an intimate wedding with friends the day before we did this shoot. Having captured their legal ceremony and celebratory lunch on the Saturday, we met very early on Sunday morning on the deserted South Bank to capture some iconic images of their beloved London town. It had been...

Lanterns and Peonies at Babington House

This late summer wedding was very pinable, with details by Flowers By Passion from the stunning deep and blush pink colour scheme to the lanterns hanging from the old pine, glowing in the twilight. In that marriage between style and homeliness, Babington House provides the most lovely English country backdrop. Save Save Save

Dear family and friends gathered together to celebrate the love of two people. Over three days I had the honour to be with these dear ones: the duck herding and...

Log fires and starlight {Tim & Joss}

Tim & Joss got married in the first days of the year, with what was the most perfect winter celebration. Joss got ready at the ever beautiful Babington House, graceful in her Jenny Packham dress, ostrich feather shrug and iconic blue satin Manolo Blahnik shoes. It was special that she wore ruby earrings which belonged to...

Rainbow Blooms and 200 years of science {Abi & Tom}

This wedding was something a little different and special for me. A real London wedding, really personal and very beautiful. Abi and Tom chose The Royal Institution of Great Britain for their ceremony: a stunning Grade I heritage building with stunning and graceful Georgian architecture, right in the heart of London, and home to some...

Smiling in the rain {Abi & Tom}

This is Abi and Tom, sharp, smart and so together. Hampstead Heath, in the winter rain, as a contrasting backdrop to their joy. I love these moments. A wonderful prelude to their London wedding day, bathed in sunshine and colour.
