A Wedding At Friern Manor

What a beautiful day Julie and Andrew had at Friern Manor for their Wedding. The sun came out, the venue looked amazing and Julie and Andrew? Well, those two didn’t stop smiling and laughing all day.

Julie and her girls had a few moments to spare pre ceremony, so we stopped in front of the house for a couple of pictures before showtime!

Meanwhile Andrew was nice and relaxed as he awaited the arrival of his beautiful Bride.

Julie made sure not to keep him waiting too long though, and, escorted by her daughter Georgia, she made her big entrance right on time!

The Ceremony was super sweet, Julie and Andrew did not stop smiling and then, before we knew it, they were having their first kiss as a married couple while all of their guests cheered and applauded. 

After the Ceremony, I took the happy couple on a stroll around the gardens at Friern Manor along with Georgia #1 and Georgia #2  (one to floof the dress and one to hold the drinks!)
And of course, as always when I’m at Friern Manor, we had to make sure we got a lake reflection picture!

Hands up if you had a great time at Julie and Andrew’s wedding! 

Just as day turned to night, it was time for the first dance.

My favourite thing about Friern Manor is that after dark the gardens light up and the venue transforms into the most amazing scene.
I am always pleased when the couple agrees to have a few night shots by the lake and Julie and Andrew were very happy to let me grab one last shot - totally worth it!

That’s all for this little sneak peek, folks.
I’ll add one or two more pictures from this day to the Facebook and Instagram pages as I edit them, so feel free to follow along over there.

Huge thanks to Andrew, Jordan and all at Friern Manor for taking such good care of us and for making sure the day went so smoothly.

Thanks too to all of Julie and Andrew’s lovely guests for making us so welcome - such a fun group of people.


A Wedding At Pembroke Lodge

Like so many couples, Sarah and Rory had to wait 2 years for their big day - but when it finally arrived, it was worth every day of the long wait.

Sarah arrived excitedly at Pembroke Lodge to the sound of bagpipes.

Meanwhile, Rory was inside awaiting the arrival of his Bride.

Sarah didn’t make him wait too long though. As all of their guests stood to their feet, she appeared along with her very proud Dad.

The Ceremony itself was really sweet and of course, it was sealed with a kiss - and then a good old fashioned confetti walk.

We headed outside for some pictures and some drinks and some celebration poses!

And then I stole the couple away for 20 minutes for some pictures too.

Before we even knew it, the Wedding Breakfast had been eaten, the speeches had been spoken and it was time for Sarah and Rory’s first dance!

The live music continued and the party got going! We had a singer and a guitarist and just when all the guests thought the surprises were over, out popped a saxophonist - what a party!  

Before leaving Sarah and Rory to party long into the night, they were very happy to quickly pop outside with me for just a few more shots.

That’s all for this little sneak peek, folks.
I’ll add one or two more pictures from this day to the Facebook and Instagram pages as I edit them, so feel free to follow along over there.

Huge thanks to Laura and all at Pembroke Lodge for taking such good care of me and for making sure the day went smoothly.

Thanks too to all of Sarah and Rory’s lovely guests for making me so welcome.


A Channels Estate Wedding

I’m always a fan of a couple that makes the most of a bank holiday weekend by getting married on a Sunday. Yesterday was the perfect day for it and Victoria and Lorenzo had a wedding to remember.

Victoria and her girls got ready in the Retreat at Channels.

She was surrounded by her and Lorenzo’s Mums, her bridesmaids and little Emilia, the cutest flower girl.

Victoria was relaxed and chilled and was ready right on time. She made quite the entrance… and made her girls cry!

And then it was time for her Dad to get the big reveal, and she made him cry too!

And well, her girls got emotional again too!

Meanwhile over in the main barn, Lorenzo was awaiting his turn, flanked by his two best men.

It wasn’t too long before Victoria made her big entrance, escorted by a very proud Dad. And yep - you guessed it. She made Lorenzo cry too! 

It was a lovely ceremony and before we knew it, it was smooch time!

After the ceremony we made our way out of the barn for a big group shot. Future bridesmaids should take note - look at the teamwork of these girls!

Then I stole the happy couple away for a few shots in the sun drenched gardens.

The speeches were excellent. All 3 were funny, sweet and entertaining, although it was the arrival of a very special guest that stole the show…

That’s right, Lorenzo surprised Victoria by arranging for their (super cute) dog to join them!
So it was straight back to the garden for some more lovely pictures!

Before we even knew it, it was time for the first dance. Any couple that chooses a John Lennon song for their first dance has excellent taste!

And then… PARTY

That’s all for this little sneak peek, folks.
I’ll add one or two more pictures from this day to the Facebook and Instagram pages as I edit them, so feel free to follow along over there.

Huge thanks to Molly and all at Channels Estate for taking such good care of us and for making sure the day went smoothly.

Thanks too to all of Victoria and Lorenzo’s wonderful guests for making us so welcome and to little Emilia for all the high fives!
