A Wedding at Friern Manor - Sophie and Matt

I love my job so much. 
Sophie and Matt had the most amazing wedding (and party!) at the beautiful Friern Manor yesterday.
Great people, loads of fun, and I really just kinda felt like I was a guest at their awesome day with a couple of cameras in my hands.

Sophie got ready in the bridal room with her girls and they all had the best morning laughing and joking. Every one of her bride squad made sure Sophie had nothing to worry about. They took care of her and also made sure I had all the little things (like Matt’s sneaky note on the sole of Sophie’s shoe) that I needed to photograph so she could just relax and get ready in peace.

She looked completely gorgeous and before we knew it, it was time for Mum and Dad to come into her room and see her. She obviously stunned the both of them.

While Sophie’s bridesmaids and I waited for her interview with the registrars to finish up, I went to take a quick photo of the squad.. and this happened.

I knew at this moment that we were in for quite the party later in the evening!

While we were outside shooting the best album cover a girl band could ever dream of, Matt was awaiting his beautiful bride.

He didn’t need to wait long though. Sophie rocked up right on time and completely knocked his socks off!

The ceremony itself was really lovely. Short and very sweet and all sealed with a big ol’ smooch and walk back down the aisle to cheers and applause from some very excited guests.

Then for my favourite part of any wedding, but particularly this one. The very newly weds and I (plus the very awesome Zoe on dress floofing and hype girl duties) took a little stroll around the beautiful Friern Manor grounds to get some gorgeous photos of a gorgeous couple. I mean… check these out!

Then we rejoined their guests for the loudest confetti walk I’ve seen all year.

After the delicious food had been eaten, one or two glasses of wine had been enjoyed and the speeches had been expertly delivered (shout out to Sophie’s wonderful Aunty Helen for making me and everyone else in the room cry), we headed out into the gardens for some group shots. And of course with these girls, we got some beauties!

And then it was time for a very romantic first dance and an epic dip-kiss!

And of course the moment this lot had been waiting for all week… PARTY TIME!

We still had time to pop back outside and get a few night time photos. One of the many reasons I love Friern Manor so much is how amazing the gardens are for photos both in the day and night. Put a beautiful couple in the scene too and… 😍

We still weren’t done there either. Sophie popped up to the room to put on a party dress and it was back to the dance floor!

Honestly, what a day. What a couple. What an amazing bunch of guests… and what a party!

Did I mention that I love my job?

That’s all for this little preview, folks.

An incredible day for the most wonderful couple. 


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 and re-live some more beautiful moments.


Huge thanks to all at Friern Manor for taking such good care of me and for making sure everything ran smoothly. Special mentions to Ash, Joanne, and Mike.


Thanks too to all of Sophie and Matt’s wonderful guests for making me so welcome. I had a blast with you all and made many new best friends!


A Gorse Hill Wedding - Sumitra & James

Sumitra and James had quite the day yesterday at the beautiful Gorse Hill in Surrey.

Sumitra had a lovely morning with her girls getting ready in the bridal room. It was one of the most calm and relaxed bridal rooms I’ve ever seen.

They were ready right on time. All looking amazing and by the way, how incredible are those flowers? 

Sumitra made her way to James…

Who was eagerly awaiting his beautiful bride.

And just like that, it was show time. Sumitra made her big entrance and totally knocked James’ socks off!

The ceremony itself was really rather lovely. Short, sweet and all sealed with a big ol’ smooch and a walk back down the aisle to cheers and applause from all of the guests.

Right before the forecast rain arrived, these two were absolutely pelted with confetti by their very excited guests.

And then the rain appeared and did it’s thing, which meant we couldn’t do the couple’s pictures when we would have liked to.
Luckily though, these two were cool about it and we just said that we’d wait for a pause in the rain and pop outside whenever that might be.
It turned out that it was mid way through the wedding breakfast when the rain paused, and yet true to their word, they came and found me and off we went to get some gorgeous photos.

After the delicious food had been eaten, the speeches had been expertly delivered and one or two drinks had been enjoyed, it was time for Sumitra and James to enjoy their first dance together as a married couple.

And then… PARTY TIME!

Right before it was time for me to leave them to it, Sumitra and James came outside with me one last time for a few night time pictures. I particularly like this one.

That’s all for this little preview, folks.

An incredible day for the most wonderful couple. 


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 and re-live some more beautiful moments.


Huge thanks to all at Gorse Hall for taking such good care of me and for making sure everything ran smoothly.


Thanks too to all of Sumitra and James’ wonderful guests for making me so welcome. I had a blast with you all!

Hands up if you had a great time at Sumitra and James’ wedding! 


An Islington Town Hall Wedding - Anna & Luke

I really loved this wedding. Anna and Luke (and all of their guests) just had a blast all day long.
I was laughing along and smiling with them all the entire day.

I arrived at Islington Town Hall a little earlier than I was scheduled to and Luke and his lads weren’t far behind me. 
We decided to use the time we had to get a few shots of Luke and his Groomsmen and the lads were up for having a bit of fun with some of them.
This one was my favourite.

Right before Anna arrived the groomsmen made sure everyone was up in the ceremony room to await her big entrance. Luke looked excited and keen to see her.

He didn’t have to wait very long though, Anna appeared, looking stunning of course, and she knocked Luke’s socks off.

The ceremony itself was lovely. Short and sweet and all sealed with a big kiss. Plus (see pic 3) right where I was stood there was a gold lamp attached to the desk and I decided to use that to reflect the very impressive ceiling into one of the pictures, because…. fun! 🤷‍♂️ 

After all the papers had been signed and everything was official, the very newly weds exited the ceremony to huge cheers and applause from their very excited guests.

While the guests all made their way outside to prepare for a confetti pelting, Anna and Luke spent 10 minutes with me inside the town hall to get some beautiful pictures.

And then it was time for them to receive that aforementioned confetti pelting. Once again, the roar from their guests as these two exited the building was wonderful! 

We all took a short walk to Fredericks for the reception, which was looking incredible.

There was a delicious wedding breakfast and some expertly delivered speeches.

The group shots were as fun and as energy filled as the rest of the day had been.

And the first dance? Well, I’ve seen a lot of first dances, and in terms of crowd participation at least, this one was hands down the best. It was a ‘let’s get this party started’ kind of dance and a room full of guests yelling ’Ohhhh iiiiiiiiiiii - I wanna be with you everywhere’ at the top of their lungs while Anna and Luke bopped around in the middle of it all will live long in the memory. 

And then finally, it was party time! 
I guess I should have known from the minute that Anna made her ceremony entrance to Everlong by the Foo Fighters that was going to be my kind of party!

That’s all for this little preview, folks.

An incredible day for the most wonderful couple. 


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 and re-live some more beautiful moments.


Huge thanks to all at Islington Town Hall and Frederick’s for taking such good care of me and for making sure everything ran smoothly.


Thanks too to all of Anna and Luke’s wonderful guests for making me so welcome. I had a blast with you all!

Hands up if you had a great time at Anna and Luke’s wedding!
