“Thank you so much for our yummy photographs! They are really wonderful!! I just also wanted to say how much we both appreciated all of your efforts on the day. We had a fabulous time and we were so glad that you could photograph us! We love the photos!”

Burrows Lea Country House – Shere, Surrey Hills Wedding

I’d never heard of the wonderful Burrows Lea Country House until lovely Elly and Doug contacted me regarding their wedding plans, and I couldn’t believe such a splendid venue was just down the road from me, nestled in the beautiful Surrey Hills village of Shere! I am quite a country gal at heart, don’t get me wrong I love hitting London every month or so, but my soul lies with the rural side of life and it was a real treat to photograph at such a pretty place with such amazing views.

It’s quite hard not to write an entire essay about these two, we met in my local pub for a drink and I knew I was going to love them, and love them I do. Elly’s dress and style was just UTTER perfection, such a beautiful bride she made and her flowers were so so glorious. And let’s face it you can’t beat a man in a kilt, Doug’s get up was certainly not one to sniff at! They both looked super awesome and they dressed their reception venue with more of the same. High fives to anyone who has a Lego cake too…!

The pair were married in a traditional and emotional ceremony at the incredible St Augustine’s Abbey in Chilworth. Afterwards their guests were carted off to Burrows Lea Country House via an array of London buses and a very special car named Clem which ferried the bridesmaids, whilst Elly, Doug and I took the scenic route for a few shots in the local area. The couple arrived to an avalanche of confetti (my first car tunnel confetti run, and hopefully not my last!) and drinks aplenty. The atmosphere of the entire reception was filled with laughter, smiles and hugs, and despite the wind having a mind of its own that day, everyone enjoyed it immensely.

I was lucky enough to have a wonderful friend assisting me who made the day even more joyous, and will be forever grateful to him, so thank you Guy for your efforts! I know Elly and Doug loved you to bits too.

Without further ramblings, here are my chosen select few favourites, I wanted to include all 600 but I know that’s a tad excessive…enjoy! <3

Surrey Wedding Photography Annie Brian Marquee Garden Wedding

“Sophie, these are amazing! Thank you so much!…You have captured the day so perfectly. Thank you so much for everything on the day of our wedding, you were the ultimate professional but you made us feel like friends, we were so comfortable with you and were so impressed with how efficient, cool and chilled you were from start to end…. And what a result, these are fantastic pictures and Annie and I are thrilled to bits with them. Each captures a little slice of the day!”

Surrey Garden Wedding

Annie and Brian. Ohhh these guys. I knew we’d get along and I knew this was going to be my kind of wedding. Looking back at the weddings I’ve blogged (and the many still to come!) I appear to have a thing for garden marquee weddings. They just suit me, full of relaxed, happy vibes and often glorious sunshine and pretty flowers. Well holding their wedding on the August Bank Holiday weekend Annie and Brian were taking a risk with the weather but my word we got so very lucky! Blue skies and sun beaming down all day long, I was so pleased they were able to celebrate just as planned outdoors with all their family and friends.

The couple were married at the very pretty St Edward The Confessor Church in Sutton Park, and had an emotional and beautiful ceremony. Since the grounds leading up to the church are so striking we stayed behind and grabbed a few moments whilst their guests made their way back to Annie’s parents’ house just round the corner. The whole day was co-ordinated by the brilliant and lovely Gilly at Amore Star Events, who took care of everything including the beautiful interior of the marquee. I don’t normally share ‘detail’ shots on my blog (although I do take them!) but I couldn’t resist a couple since this was such a stunning setup.

The speeches were lengthy but in the best possible way, so many laughs, heartfelt moments, and definitely more than a few tears! They rounded off the end of the reception and hearty meal beautifully ahead of Annie and Brian’s awesome first dance. These guys can move!! I left thinking just how lucky I am to be invited not only into couples’ special days, but their homes as well, and be treated as one of the guests yet again. I have such fond memories of this wedding and cannot wait to get designing their wedding album in the next few weeks. If you’re having a marquee garden wedding, please give me a shout! Relaxed and happy, they are where I feel most at home. Thank you Annie and Brian for being two of the loveliest, gentlest people to work with. Here are a few of my favourites from your day! <3 xxx

Cardiff Wedding Photography Farm Wedding

You’ve captured everything that we were feeling that day, we were so happy. Thank you x’

Relaxed Farm Wedding in Wales

I have a bit of a thing for ‘homespun’ weddings. I’m very lucky that I shoot so many of them as they are so personal and relaxed and I always leave feeling part of the family. Pippi and Mark’s beautiful wedding just outside Cardiff in Wales was no exception. It was another gorgeous sunny Saturday in August, and the happy smiles were out in force. I walked into their incredible home situated on Pippi’s parents’ farm and I knew it was going to be a special one indeed. Everyone was mucking in, cooking bits, preparing salads, not forgetting to mention Mark’s incredible illustrations which adorned the wedding so beautifully (check his work out, it’s amazing!) Of course being an animal lover I was pretty excited to hear we might go off to visit their pet chickens and ducks later on in the day. The family dog also wore the most adorable Paisley print bow-tie so of course he had to feature as my opening image :)

The couple were married in a beautifully quaint church down the road, and showered with ALL of the confetti upon their exit, easily one of my favourite confetti runs to photograph! They then headed back along with their guests to the gardens of the farm to enjoy their reception drinks and snacks. They had the most incredible hog roast, which even though I’m a little squeamish at times, was quite an impressive sight to see carved up ready for the wedding breakfast! I managed to get hit in the face square on with a green space-hopper (not something that happens every day) but thankfully since I’m a professional I took the shot before I winced in pain, and it turned out to be one of my favourite frames from last year :) There were SO many laughs during the speeches (and some rather wonderful videos too) that I don’t think I stopped smiling the entire time I was shooting. We hopped into the fields just before sunset and the first dance to grab some photos of Pippi and Mark, and they totally smashed their session :) I have to comment that I’ve never had the experience of posing my couples in front of giant hay bale effigies of a bride and groom before, and it was awesome! An incredible thing to witness, and an awesome shot for them to remember in years to come!

I had SUCH a wonderful time with these two and their absolutely terrific families, I really didn’t want to leave and I will always remember their wedding as one of my favourites for life. If you’re planning something similar, do give me a shout, I love, love LOVE weddings held at home :) Please have a nosey at my favourites below! xxx
