Carley Tom Kensington Roof Garden London Wedding Photography

“Thank you so much…Your photos are amazing you made it really fun and were a great help through out the day so I can’t thank you enough!”

Kensington Roof Gardens Wedding

Oh what a way to kick off a triple wedding weekender. Carley and Tom’s incredible day at Kensington Roof Gardens was the first of the Easter weekend, and boy did we get lucky with the weather! I was referred to Carley by one of my lovely newborn session mothers whom I’d met at Lottie & Russ’ wedding a couple of year ago. It is always SO lovely to be recommended and even nicer when I turn up and get to see some old faces again!

So, back to this beautiful, colourful London wedding. Carley got ready locally with her girls (all seven of them!) plus her Mum and niece and a few more of the family, I swear I’ve never seen so many people getting ready in one room in my life and the energy was just awesome. Throw in a cheeky and adorable page-boy and you’ve got yourself a bloody great start to the day. We travelled in taxis galore to the Roof Gardens, and I was immediately blown away by the incredible decor and flowers, not to mention the lift full of balloons – so much fun!

Their ceremony was emotional, and also full of giggles and laughter, which is exactly how these two carried on. Carley and Tom laughed and smiled their whole way through their day, the speeches were some of the best I’ve EVER heard, and the environment suited them to a T. The flowers by Cat Allison, at The Colour Green were so stunning, and the table-scapes and name places looked incredible. I don’t normally include details in a blog post, but how could I leave them out, I mean LOOK AT THEM! <3 So much to love.

I had the best time exploring this special, private venue, and it definitely made me fall in love with The Roof Gardens, more weddings there please! But the main reason I was smiling from ear to ear all day was down to two people, Carley and Tom, two absolutely LOVELY, kind and generous souls, who made my job so flipping easy. I really hope I get to see you two again, and you’re enjoying your first year of marriage so far, here’s to many more happy times!! Here are a few of my favourites…. enjoy! xxx

Jo Olly Liphook Hampshire Wedding Photography
“Thank you so much for these – they are fantastic, we absolutely love them!! You honestly did just the best job. It has been so nice to look through them and ‘re-live’ the day a little – it all went by in a bit of a blur! Such awesome memories.”

Hampshire Garden Wedding

So, a little late in the day perhaps, but since my last wedding of 2017 is now over I thought it was time to show off some of this year’s thirty brilliant celebrations! First up on the blog is Jo and Olly’s absolutely beautiful day in April, on thankfully a very sunny Spring Saturday! I met these two in the pub and despite not knowing, we’d been sat at adjacent tables scoffing some dinner pre meeting, before we realised and I’m fairly sure we began laughing with each other from that moment on.

I clicked with both Jo and Olly’s absolutely infectious, smiley personalities straight away, and like all my couples, fell totally in love with them. I always know when I’m shooting a homespun garden wedding that I am very honoured to be invited into such an intimate celebration and this was no exception. The happy pair were married at St Luke’s Milland in Liphook, which is not far from where I spent a lot of my childhood at my grandparents’ house, so to head back to this part of Hampshire was a real treat! They had a smashing line of confetti and I’ve even broken my ‘no portrait images in a blog rule’ because Olly’s face as they exited the church is possibly my favourite to date!

The grounds of Olly’s family’s home served as their reception just down the road, with AWESOME tipis set up for their meal which I bloody love. I was also spoilt for choice with the super pretty garden for the couple session photos. We had that magical light that only Spring and Autumn bring, and I was chuffed to be able to stay late enough to grab a special moment outside at night with the most beautiful waxing crescent moon in the sky.

Jo and Olly were two of the most fun, kind and generous souls to work with, and I left with some seriously lovely memories of their day, one I shall never forget. A big thanks to Guy for being my second shooter on the day too!

Here are a few of my favourites from their day, if you’re planning a home wedding then do get in touch! I specialise in them, see here for more inspiration! <3 xxxx

Surrey Wedding Photographer Wotton House Wedding Jenny Connor

“Wow! Thank you so much! The photos are absolutely gorgeous! You’ve captured the day so well. It was so lovely to see photos of our friends and family having a wonderful time. The day went by in such a blur it was so wonderful to be reminded of all the small happy moments and details. And what an amazing job you did of making such a drizzly day into a thing of beauty! I just loved looking at the photos of the ceremony and the speeches. You managed to capture certain unique expressions of Conor’s and my family and friends which I just love. Never has a day gone so quickly before in my entire life! Through speed (and a bit of alcohol!) my memories  are a bit hazy but I just remember the warmth and love I felt from Conor and everyone on the day. The photos are just filled with this same love and warmth, so I am thrilled! 

We are so so pleased that you photographed our wedding for us. We are so pleased you enjoyed the day too! We had such lovely feedback from our friends and family who spoke to you too – they thought you were fab. If you would ever like me to speak to future clients or write a recommendation, please don’t hesitate to ask! “

Wotton House Wedding

My last wedding from 2016 (I will get round to sharing some of 2017’s goodness very soon!) was an incredibly special one. I knew when Jenny and Conor booked me for their Wotton House Wedding, that we would have a brilliant day together. I never quite imagined after their sunny engagement shoot, that I would grow so close to a couple who I hope I will always call my friends.  I knew Jenny would be flanked by some fabulous bridesmaids on the day and she truly was. Such a fun and loving bunch of ladies! All of both Jenny and Conor’s family were the kindest, most welcoming people you could wish to meet, and I felt at home the minute I stepped in the door.  Jenny’s dress was by the fabulous Jesus Peiro (I might’ve mentioned once or twice that he’s my fave ;)) and she looked absolutely INCREDIBLE in it.  Hair was by the fabulous Kasia Fortuna, and make up the wonderful and very lovely Kristina Gasperas, whom I have on my recommended list because she is just so fab!  All of the above helped make an already stunning Jenny into the beautiful bride she was on the day.

So, being November, we expected a little rain…sadly the drizzle never quite let up, but being legends, Jenny and Conor braved the outdoors for me (on more than one occasion!) and we spent sometime in the awesome grounds that make up Wotton House.  I have photographed at Wotton a few times and I’m always so grateful to be asked back, the grounds look amazing in rain or shine, and the ceremony room is just a little bit special.  I LOVE indoor confetti, especially when the couple come down the aisle, I’m sure it’s thrown with just that little bit more enthusiasm knowing it’s the first announcement of the couple as Mr and Mrs!!

We had plenty of giggles and smiles all day, the speeches were heartfelt and hilarious, and boy that first dance!  The way Conor looks at Jenny…*sigh* and the sweet mix of comedy and romance was just the icing on the cake for me before the guests joined in for a right old good go on the dance floor.  A truly magical, and happy day.  I feel so honoured to get to know my couples and to work with the best, BEST people.  Jenny and Conor, thank you for being so bloody brilliant, and I wish you all the best for your future together, lots and lots of love xxxxxx
