Alice Steve Farnham Castle Surrey Wedding Photography

“Thank you so so much for being so wonderful on our wedding day from helping to iron my dress, to organising our (occasionally) challenging family members. Everyone has been telling us how fantastic you were, we already knew! It was so great to know you were around to capture our memories. Thank you so much, the photos are truly wonderful.”

Summer Farnham Castle Wedding

This was my third visit to the beautiful venue that is Farnham Castle, and I’m now convinced having shot my fourth last Autumn that this place has its own micro-climate, it’s always blessed with incredible evening light! So, back to Alice and Steve, I first met them for a drink in a pub in Guildford and I immediately clicked with them both knowing full well I wanted to photograph their day. Thankfully they chose and trusted me to be a part of what was an INCREDIBLE day, despite me being pooped on by an enormous goose-type bird half way through the day. (Note to self, do not wear white based dresses as a photographer) ;)

Both Alice and Steve got ready at the castle, and were married in the gorgeous and perfectly formed Norman Chapel. It was so intimate and relaxed, and definitely filled with emotion. A quick hop, skip and a jump down to the main steps and the couple were showered with confetti from head to toe…I love confetti (name me a person who doesn’t) but I genuinely believe one day I will break my neck going backwards down those stairs at the castle!! :) Thankfully I didn’t and the guests enjoyed the sunny and warm reception. We wandered off to make the most of the stunning grounds, and give Alice and Steve a little alone time before heading in for speeches. I think possibly my favourite moment was when Alice’s father held up her childhood teddy to narrate half of his speech with, I might have blubbed a tad at this point!

Once the heavenly food had been scoffed, everyone headed back outdoors to enjoy the most beautiful golden hour, giving Alice and Steve a chance to practise one of the finest first dance’s I’ve ever witnessed! The lifts were AMAZING!! I was most impressed and feel so grateful to have been there to capture it. I will always, ALWAYS have the fondest memories of this wedding, but mainly Steve and Alive themselves, it was SUCH a pleasure getting to know them, and was even lovelier to be able to catch up with them for coffee post wedding just to hand over their photographs. Here are a few of my particular favourites from one hell of a beautiful day in June.

JJ Charlie Gate Street Barn Surrey Wedding Photography

“Thank you so much, there are so many amazing pictures! Thank you for all your hard work, the photos are beautiful, you’re amazing!”

Gate Street Barn Wedding

Early May saw my return to Gate Street Barn and the first of three visits in 2017, and what a way to begin! I absolutely love this venue, I am quite a ‘barn’ fan, and this one really does have it all. It’s so beautifully tucked away down a quiet country lane, surrounded by all the beauty you could wish for. The barn itself was dressed up to the nines thanks to the incredibly lovely and talented Gill Pike Florist, who always does such an amazing job.  The food was provided by the ever brilliant Kalm Kitchen, and once again, their dessert station caused open-mouthed gasps!

The ceremony was emotional, filled with laughter and smiles, and just the right amount of ‘sniffs’ from close family members. I was so thrilled that JJ and Charlie were blessed with that gorgeous May sunshine that I’ve come to rely on, especially enabling the brilliant confetti line. I mean, who doesn’t want a giant bucket of home-dried leaves from last Autumn lobbed over them at the end?! :)

Bluebells were hunted down especially for JJ as they were keen to have some portraits in amongst them, and I’m so glad we went searching as we took some of my favourite photos ever in that patch! The rest of the reception followed after some incredible speeches, particularly from JJ’s Mum, Barbara and Best Man Callum who was also a massive help throughout the day, making my job even easier with such a lovely bunch of people to work with. I have some of the finest memories from this wedding, not least because it was a bit of a last minute booked job for me, and I couldn’t be happier that I was given the chance to capture such an amazing day. JJ and Charlie, you two are absolutely MADE for each-other, I’ve enjoyed all our chats in the lead up to the day and afterwards, and so pleased you love your wedding album. I hope it brings back what an incredible day it was time and time again. Here are a few of my favourites..I got a bit carried away so grab a cuppa ;) xxx

Aislinn Ben Bury Court Barn Surrey Wedding Photography

“Thank you for being the most fabulous photographer we could have asked for. You made us feel so comfortable on the day and took photos that we will treasure forever. We are so happy that we chose you. We’re going to spend the Summer printing and framing but we’re not sure how were going to narrow them down!”

Bury Court Barn Wedding

It’s been a little while since I’d photographed at Bury Court Barn but luckily Aislinn and Ben provided me with the chance to go back in April this year, the third wedding of a very busy Easter weekend! And what a wedding to finish that weekend on!! I often comment on how lucky I am that my couples are recommended to me, but when they remember me from what feels like a hundred years ago at school (I’m fairly certain I was Aislinn’s mentor when I was ten…) it’s a massive compliment to have them get in touch and book me. I was so touched to hear from Aislinn, but mainly excited to see her again after all this time and of course to meet her lovely beau, Ben! We had a natter in the pub (like I typically do with my couples pre-wedding) and I knew it was going to be an upbeat, relaxed and fun wedding full of family and laughter. Thankfully the weather held for them and they were married in a beautiful church in Chertsey, Surrey before exiting onto a very crowded pavement of confetti! We then headed over to the beautiful barn at Bury Court, one of my favourite venues, (very excited to be heading back again next year!) for reception drinks and sunshine!

I have to comment on Aislinn’s INCREDIBLE dress from Miss Bush Bridal, one of my favourite bridal retailers, since she looked so absolutely stunning in it. I don’t think Ben stopped beaming with pride at his beautiful wife all day. The speeches were absolute crackers, with many a ‘oh no, he didn’t…’ faces pulled. What rounded it off as this a super special wedding was finding out Ben and Aislinn’s first dance was England, by The National, one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite ever bands. It was performed beautifully by Rollercoaster, and danced to even more beautifully by the couple themselves. I might have shed a *tiny* tear at this point and I left with a happy heart and a giant smile across my face. Once again, another incredible wedding, spoiled as ever by the caterers Jacaranda and the venue staff of course. Thank you Aislinn and Ben for choosing me, I absolutely loved every minute of your beautiful day, and I hope the photos will provide the best memories for you! Here are some of my favourites…<3 xxx
