It was getting towards the end of a 2 day fusion wedding and everybody was feeling the love (and slight fatigue!). As we walked back from a mini portrait shoot I noticed the stunning symmetry at Hedsor House, I asked my couple to share a moment and this is what happened next!
Emi & John’s wedding in the Amalfi Coast was special for so many reasons. Emi wanted some portraits to which she would be able to remember the feeling of not only her day but also the location. As we walked the streets of Ravello high up in the mountains looking over Amalfi I noticed this stunning view. The other side of that wall is a sheer drop! But Emi & John were more than keen to take up pose and frame this perfect view.
Most people stress about the weather on their wedding day, but not Charlotte & Chris. I got very lucky - just the right kind of rain and a willingness to create something truly original and beautiful from the end of their wedding. Using a little team of guests which I assembled we went outside, each person with their specific role (from umbrella holder, to the person who put the flash in just the right place). This was actually a 'test' shot, a REAL moment of intimacy between 2 people on their wedding day.
Fernelle really wanted a ‘tossing bouquet’ picture, and thankfully all her bridesmaids weren’t married off so we decided to make it an extra special moment featuring all of her best friends. We only had one chance to get it right so timing and position was very important to capturing this incredible beautiful moment. I found some amazing light with a blank green backdrop and set the picture up. Everything aligned perfectly and this is the resulting shot!
Nikki & Ed got hitched just as summer was turning to autumn. The trees were beginning to shed their leaves and the fields, once golden and swaying with corn were now cut down completely. I saw this epic backdrop, a rolling hill which went on for as far as the eye could see - and knew instinctively it would be a beautiful place to frame my couple for a portrait shoot. On the way back in Nikki's dress was getting tangled in the corn stalks so Ed (being the true gent) picked her up. It's a legitimate beautiful moment and one I'm proud to have captured.
Who doesn't love a beautiful sunset! I invited Helen & John out just after their first dance - perfect timing as it gave them the ideal moment to cool off and take some time in together. I saw the most sensational sky peeking between 2 trees and immediately knew how my picture would go down. Helen & John have a legitimate soulful connection, and all that was required was to put them together in the same spot - the rest as they say 'is history'. This is the moment just before they kissed - a moment that will stay with me for a long time.
Rebecca wanted to toss the bouquet, but in style! As she stands on the balcony her eager single ladies wait below, and in a split second this sensational moment was documented.
I love the little moments of calm and downtime on the wedding day. one of my favourite's is just after the wedding breakfast and before the first dance, it's relaxed. I took Anjuli & Ollie off for some early evening portraits, just as the light got scrummy :) We headed out onto a rickety bridge and soaked up the last of the light, only a stones throw from their marquee behind. I particularly love this moment, it's real. Legitimate - and it shows the beautiful connection that they had for each other.
The weather had been on & off throughout, but during the evening the clouds parted to reveal the universe in all her glory. I was super lucky to have a couple willing to brave a cornfield in the pitch black, so we went out, set up a flash and shot 3 images - this was the first; a beautiful moment which the three of us won’t forget!
I heard it long before I saw it. The infectious giggle of a little person carried across the field where I was shooting, I turned the corner to find this dude being propelled high into the sky, laughing and chattering as he sailed through the air.
This beautiful rustic wedding was shot deep in the countrywide in the United Kingdom. It was one of those “blink and you’ll miss it” moments.. We had just finished up taking some portraits before heading off to the reception - as their classic car fired up and roared past the I focussed my 135mm and lucked out on this sensational one-off moment.
