Maddie & Ali – Betchworth Garden Wedding

“We’ve looked through the photos several more times since that first look, and they are absolutely wonderful. I discover new favourites each time I look at them. Going through them with family was like going through the day all over again, and there were so many laughters and happy memories. Your candid shots have captured so much real emotion and joy and incredible details which we now won’t ever forget thanks to the photos. We’re so happy you were our wedding photographer and would have picked you again a thousand times”

Betchworth Garden Wedding

Oh Maddie & Ali. Where to begin with these two and their stunning Betchworth garden wedding. I was fortunate to meet them at a beautiful wedding I captured five years ago and knowing they chose me based on their friend’s recommendations was always a lovely feeling. We had a fun little pre-wedding shoot up in London in the absolute scorching heat (I am not sure I’ve ever been quite so sweaty!) and that was the day I fell in love with them. Every so often I get to meet people who I hope will remain in my life forever in some format. These two absolutely fall into that category. They chose my favourite style of wedding, a beautiful countryside church followed by a back garden marquee. I just love weddings held at home, they are ALWAYS so special, everyone feels relaxed, seeing the hard work on the gardening during the months leading up, and that feeling of ‘home’ surrounded by your loved ones. I am very fortunate that 75% of my weddings are of this style, which is why I’ll never stop sharing them, as they are so unique and each tell their own special story.

Maddie chose to rent a beautiful house closeby to get ready in with her sister and her Mum and Dad. Although it wasn’t their family home, it did remind me just how much more relaxing this form of prep is, outside of a hotel room. I was working alongside one of my favourite suppliers, Carolanne Armstrong, who did my make up for my own wedding, just a mere week prior to Maddie & Ali’s day! I must say it felt strange coming back to work a week after our day, but it was actually so lovely to be back amongst the same love and happiness felt at my own. I truly felt at home around both Maddie and Ali’s families and feel so honoured to be have been involved. They were married at the prettiest St Michael’s Church in Betchworth, and continued their celebrations at Ali’s family home down the road. Maddie is Swedish, and warned me there may be a few ‘ad-hoc’ speeches made, as is tradition. I am not quite sure I’ve ever yo-yoed so much during a wedding breakfast! :D But what was so touching was how heartfelt each offering was. Maddie said not to capture everyone – but how could I not, there were bespoke songs, gorgeous kiddies performing, and many, many happy tears! I’ve never experienced anything like it and I came away from their day with a new sense of fascination by how other cultures celebrate. And how much I love it when cultures mix. It was a wonderful few hours and I couldn’t help smile and sing along with all their guests. The evening drew near and it was time to party. I LOVE photographing dance-floors, and theirs didn’t disappoint, some brilliant moves made! I said my goodbyes after a sunny, warm and just SO happy a day. Maddie and Ali, thank you from the bottom of my heart for asking me to capture such an important day in your life. It was my absolute privilege and I look forward to when our paths cross again…lots of love, here are a few of my favourites from your wonderful day! xx

September Millbridge Court Wedding

Here I am once again, adding to my lovely blog, with yet another stunner of a Millbridge Court wedding. I’m booked for another six Millbridge weddings over the next 12 months so far, and each time I pull into that familiar country lane I feel a little rush of excitement and contentment. I am very proud to be a recommended supplier at Millbridge and will always strive to stay on that on that list!

This time I’m honouring the absolutely wonderful Harriet and Dan, who were married at the very  beautiful St Mary’s Church in Frensham, just around the corner from Millbridge itself. I LOVE church weddings. Millbridge Court obviously has its own beautiful spaces to be married in, but there is something special about longer ceremonies and of course the hymns! I love a good sing along behind the camera! We were blessed with that ever perfect September light that they so deserved, and the day was simply lovely.

I was lucky enough to work alongside a lot of my favourite supplier friends, including none other than my own wedding florist, Hannah Berry flowers, who did the most stunning job as always. I don’t usually include detail shots in my blog posts, but I couldn’t resist a couple as the venue just looked so pretty. Also who knew that in my 30s I’d become obsessed again with helium balloons! Ever the popular ongoing trend, and Bugglegum Balloons did not disappoint here.

What makes this a special wedding for me, was, as always the people involved. Harriet got ready at Dan’s parents’ home which is about a 30 second drive from my old house. I love the area and it felt like going to a friend’s house when I turned up to capture Harriet and her girls. The kindest bunch of bridesmaids and a thoroughly lovely morning spent with everyone. I think it’s fair to say beautiful Harriet took Dan’s breath away on more than one occasion, and to see the two of them at the top of the aisle was just utterly lovely.

These two are just made for one another. A lovely long, sunshine-filled confetti run started off their reception at Millbridge and the usual fun and frolics ensued. As usual, I’ve included a few speech photos because I LOVE THEM SO! A wonderful collection of poignant, and incredibly funny moments, my favourite being Dan’s long lasting comparison to the Megabus man – something I can now never un-see :)

I could go on hours about how much I love these two, and their wedding, but I will finish before you nod off, just by saying, guys, it was the most wonderful experience being a part of your special day, and I do hope I get to see you and your beautiful son very soon, here’s to you, and thank you for being such bloody brilliant people. Lots of love, me xxx
