Dani & Tom – Cowdray House Wedding Previews

Cowdray House Wedding

And so it ends, my 2019 wedding season, and what a way to happily hang up my cameras. I’d been looking forward to this beautiful day for about a year, after I’d first met Dani and Tom at their pre-wedding shoot. We chose to do it at Cowdray House since with Winter weddings, you never quite know what the weather will do, but amazingly we had incredible light on both occasions! One could argue that they deserved it but that makes me feel as though anyone who doesn’t get lovely light deserves that also so I will shut up about the weather now. Although I WILL say, that the kind of light that flooded the bridal suite just about blew my mind and I genuinely wished the whole event had been shot there.

So, back to the couple at hand. I say this a lot, but I have some form of magnetic field around me that seems to attract the world’s most lovely people. Dani, as echoed in a speech from her lovely mother, is THE most caring person I’ve met. Tom, who’s quiet, but so wonderfully gracious, deeply loving and the most charming of gentleman, clearly adores her. It was just adorable to witness. They made it effortless for me, all I ask for is my couples to enjoy their day and let me capture it, and I’m so grateful that’s exactly what they did.

After a beautiful morning getting ready, we headed to a local Church, where Tom and Dani were married. The most beautiful ceremony followed by a spray of confetti (hand dried by friends of theirs – cute!), and a slightly excitable photographer keen to make the most of the light, hurried us all back to the house :) I was SO pleased to catch the last of the daylight, I think we had fifteen minutes in the end, but it’s all we needed. I don’t think I need to express just HOW stunning Cowdray House is. I mean, wow. Jacaranda did the most incredible job helping to make it look even more beautiful, and served delicious food to all as usual.

I will admit that I had a tear or two in my eye during the speeches, Tom, you are such a special soul, well done on such a brilliant and heartfelt speech. I could see how much it meant to Dani, to be centre of attention and adoration for once, as I know she is permanently taking care of and worrying about others normally. I ended my day with these two lovely people after their cake cutting, again, made by one of their guests, who are these talented people! I can’t believe how beautiful and professional it looked. I don’t normally blog my previews, but I do try to every once in a while, and I’m thrilled to be signing off my 2019 books with this one. Thank you, so so much, for having me. It was an absolute blast. Lots of love xx

Charlotte & Adam – Kew Gardens

Charlotte Adam Kew Gardens Wedding Sophie Duckworth Photography

“I am not the best with words (this is usually Adam’s area) but we both wanted to thank you again so much for everything. You really were such a great part of our day, you were so lovely to be around and I know that you didn’t just make it super special for us, all of the wedding party have also commented on how amazing you were on the day.
The images are truly stunning and (apart from how much I cried on the day!) you really have managed to capture our happiest day perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

Kew Gardens Spring Wedding

So yes it may have been last May (2018, whoops), but this wedding is worth the wait! The best part about blogging weddings months after they occur, is that I get to revisit the memories and emotions and the whole day comes flooding back to me, one smile after another. It’s always SO tricky choosing the ones I want to blog. I try and focus on the moments, the tears and laughter and all the pretty in between that makes up the wonderful day.

It was my first wedding working alongside my lovely friend Louise Perry Weddings. Louise and her right hand woman, Natalie, have been industry friends for a while now, and working with them far exceeded my expectations! So much fun, as well as feeling looked after and watching everything running smoothly made things nice and easy for me. We began at the Hilton in Syon Park, with plenty of girlie chats and bubbles flowing, before we headed off to the stunning Kew Gardens to start the celebrations. I’m sure those who know Kew will know the gardens are always gorgeous, but it was looking especially pretty that day in May!

A slightly nervous looking Adam greeted myself and videographer Jessica Tottman, and moments after the doors flung open, anxiety faded and there began the grinning. These guys, are honestly, two of the bubbliest, funniest, and smiliest people I’ve had the pleasure to work with. I had SUCH a laugh with them, I felt so at home with their families and guests, everyone was just there to have the best time. An emotional ceremony with the prettiest light proceeded a wicked bubble run, whilst the guests enjoyed Pimms and chats outside the Nash Conservatory.

The best part of Kew is the buggies! A few hopped on board during the reception for tours around the grounds, whilst the rest enjoyed canapés by Caper & Berry in the beautiful Princess of Wales Conservatory. Charlotte, Adam and I took advantage of this time by hopping on our own buggy round the grounds for their couples session. We ended the the reception with the beautiful sun setting and a few more happy tears from Charlotte (and almost certainly myself, *cough*). The speeches were absolutely brilliant. I mean, I don’t usually blog as many images as this, but with so many awesome guests and so much emotion it’s hard not to. It was SUCH a pleasure to end my day with them after the most stunning evening reception and ruddy great first dance, and I can only hope these photos give some essence of the awesome day that they had.

Charlotte and Adam, every single step of the way with you guys has been wonderful, I’ve loved catching up with you both every now and again since the wedding, and I hope we keep in touch as we still need to go out and get drunk ;) Thank you, Louise and team, and of course Charlotte and Adam for trusting me with such a brilliant day. I loved every minute of it!! xxx
