Karl and Kayleigh were guests at a wedding in Morocco that I photographed last autumn. Fast forward 8 months and I met up with them at Gosfield Hall for their very own engagement shoot. Kayleigh's friends kindly bought their pre-wedding shoot as a surprise gift to celebrate her engagement. We met up in the evening and made the most of the beautiful light as sunset approached. Here's a little preview of their shoot.
The 2017 wedding season is well underway. To kick off we have Lucy and Aaron's Gaynes Park wedding.
Lucy and Aaron got married at All Saints Church in Epping. After the ceremony everyone made the short drive to Gaynes Park. We were treated to beautiful sunshine all day. Top marks to the father of the bride, Aaron and the bestman for brilliant speeches! Excellent comic timing as well as heart felt sentiment throughout.
Gaynes Park is one of those venues that has it all. A beautiful bridal cottage, a honeymoon suite, overnight accommodation for guests, stunning barns and gardens as well as capacity for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies. It is a joy to photograph weddings here.

Today on the blog is the Crondon Park Wedding of Lou and Paul. Another one of my favourite Essex barn venues. I first met Paul at a local business networking meeting a few years ago. It was one of those moments when you click instantly. A top guy with a sense of humour not all too dissimilar to my own. So I was chuffed when Paul's fiancé got in touch to chat about photographing their wedding. Honestly, I was over the moon. There is something very special about getting to photograph the wedding day of such an awesome couple, also knowing that I could ensure they would be well looked after throughout the day. I started the day at Greenwoods Hotel where Lou got ready in the company of friends and family. Whilst my trusty second shooter, Jay, met up with Paul and the groom's party at the cottage at Crondon Park. We had a great time in great company all day. Lots of giggles, smiles and few emotional tears too. Check out the highlights from their day.
I spent a lovely morning with Natalie and Shardarne for their Greenwich engagement shoot. It's been a while since I have ventured over to Greenwich but it's always a joy to wander around this part of London. Especially as the historical Cutty Sark and Naval College make beautiful backdrops. Here are a few of my favourite shots from their London engagement shoot.
