EMILY & LUKE'S CHENIES MANOR HOUSE WEDDING

Chenies Manor House Wedding Photographer_0168.jpg

Emily and Luke’s wedding was an absolute cracker. The people, the locations, the weather and the dancefloor action was on another level! I struggled with choosing images for this particular blog. I had too many favourites. Each image evoked a particular memory or emotion. Although, some might argue that this was a good problem to have, especially as I was smiling all the way through putting this wedding together. I hope my choices have done this wedding justice!

The marriage service was held at the Emmanuel Church in Middlesex, led by Johnny the Vicar a good friend to both Emily and Luke. Johnny was an absolute dream to work with. We felt very lucky to have Johnny’s company all afternoon as he took on the role of Master of Ceremonies with a trendy style and grace.

After a cake buffet at the church, we all headed to Chenies Manor House in Buckinghamshire for the wedding reception. It’s a stunning luxury wedding venue set in quite an idyllic part of the countryside. There was so much to explore and as we were treated to full sunshine all day, we were able to make the most of it. The speeches during dinner had everyone in hysterics. The animated dancefloor action with the help of the live band, rounded off the day perfectly.

40 Perfect Dance Floor Moments

A friend asked me recently how many weddings have I photographed. It dawned on me that I didn't actually know the answer but it wouldn't hurt to work it out. So I looked back and was surprised when the total came to 140! I have witnessed 140 couples get married across the UK and beyond. That is pretty cool!

With that in mind, it feels like a great time to pick out some of my favourite moments, starting with the dance floor.  For any couples who can't decide whether or not to have a photographer stay for the first dance and beyond, right here are 40 reasons why you should. Forty moments captured on camera from first dances with Elvis to brides getting their feet wet, to beer pints being spilt or guests doing the caterpillar! I love them all!

These are memories that everyone should have captured of their wedding day. Be sure to tell your family and friends to not be shy. Dance like no one is watching!

ZOE & ADAM'S NORTH HILL FARM WEDDING

North-Hill-Farm-Wedding-Photographer_0067.jpg

There was so much to love about Zoe and Adam's wedding.  The atmosphere was completely relaxed and I do rather love a tippee wedding. I had been looking forward to visiting Hertfordshire to photograph this North Hill Farm Wedding. The farmlands are beautiful, gorgeous views in every direction. They chose to have an outdoor ceremony and the weather was absolutely perfect. Sunshine and not a single drop of rain!  From body painting to the street food, dream catchers to cacti, and bow ties to the gold styling, I loved it all! Congratulations again Zoe and Adam. Thanks for choosing me to be a part of your day.

RACHAEL & OWEN'S PONSBOURNE PARK WEDDING
