Jonny & Holly - Wedding Sneak Peek | The Gardens, Yalding, Kent

So here it is the sneak peek of Jonny & Holly’s wedding which took place on a gloriously hot day in April at The Gardens, Yalding! Now these two are blooming epic, their taste in music is exquisite so much so I got them to send me over their playlist for the day which I have been playing whilst editing their collection. Holly with her boho chic styling and Jonny with his immense suit, I am in love and thoroughly enjoyed being part of their day and also having dance on the dance floor! Also brides should do a speech!

Valentines Wedding | Cooling Castle Barn, Kent | Sharah & Sam

Sharah & Sam got married on valentines day, the most romantic day of the year at an equally romantic venue, Cooling Castle Barn, Kent.

I met Sharah and Sam 2 years ago when they booked me (top tip book in advance to guarantee your date) they booked a joint package with myself and Andy Bird Videography and instantly I knew they were my kinda couple, we met up a year later for an engagement shoot amongst the bluebells one of my favourite engagement shoots. Sharah & Sam were an amazing couple, utterly gorgeous inside and out and were very happy to go with my creative way of thinking. Sharah’s wedding dress reflected her so well and Sam’s suit equally matched his personality. Sharah wore a pair of Jimmy Choos, which had she of been a size 4 I would of accidentally taken home with me haha! Everything from this wedding had been thought of, styling right through to entertainment!

I am in love with this wedding - can you believe it was in February it was so warm! With perfect light makes me very happy :0) I hope you enjoy the image. If you would like someone like me to capture your day then please get in touch!

Sally & Julian Sneak Peek, Whitstable & Herne Bay Kent

Sally and Julian had what I call the most intimate weddings I have ever documented. We started off at The Marine Hotel, whitstable for bridal prep, Sally had her best friend do her hair, make up and even did her gorgeous bouquet. Even thought here was only two people getting ready at the hotel it did not stop the laughter and giggles. Sally was so excited and you could really see it, her eyes lit up and sparkled whenever she spoke about her wedding day. She had two pairs of shoes for the day, my kinda girl! Sparkly gold shoes right up my street! But to sill the deal she had these amazing irregular choice bride and groom shoes - epic!

Her lovely father was equally over the moon, he absolutely adored his daughter and treated her to an awesome wedding transport in the shape of a yellow VW camper van sporting black and white chequered flooring! We managed to get a few sneaky shots by Tankerton slopes before heading off to the tiniest church I have ever photographed a wedding at - it could only fit 50 guests if you are friendly (vicars words)plus their dog. So I spent most of the wedding shooting from the back with limited moving around but it actually worked out ok for me and managed to get some lovely shots of the gorgeous couple during the ceremony. We had a confetti shot which I love doing but this one was extra special as the vicar told the guest it was ok, they instantly thought they could throw straight away and launched the dry petals at Julian and Sally inside the church made everyone giggle and since handing over there USB & Box Sally and Julian both commented on who was the culprit that started the mass confetti launching was! We had lots of laughs and it was wonderful to hear them reminisce about their day after receiving their images. Reception was held at Sally & Julian's house with paella being cooked as we walked in! 

The day was lovely, full of intimate moments especially when we went off for some private shots down at hampton pier. Stunning couple full of colour and love. These two made me feel so warm and fuzzy I had such a buzz and feel very privileged to have been asked to capture their day.

Charlotte & Scott, Cobham Hall, Kent

I had the honour of capturing Charlotte & Scotts wedding at the stunning Cobham Hall. I have known Charlotte since I was very little, we haven't seen each for a number of years so felt truly blessed to be asked to document her day! Seeing old faces from my childhood was amazing and it was a real giggle! Charlotte looked breathtaking and Scott was blown away as she walked down the aisle. Her dad had the most beautiful reaction to seeing his only daughter walked down the stairs to greet him.

I had been rather poorly, in fact I was taken to hospital straight after the wedding as I had a cold sore in my eye, I cannot tell you how much pain I was in but you just get on with it and I was determined to do just that! I had my lovely 16 year old cousin help second shoot and also not forgetting Charlotte's son Sam who had a go taking pictures! The day was epic and very grand, the light was sublime and the couple were an absolute treat! I have been desperate to share this day! I hope you enjoy the sneak peek from what was a elegant, full of love and laughter day!

 

New logo for my wedding & lifestyle photography brand, Kent

It was well overdue and I am so indecisive partly because I love everything colourful and pretty but a logo and an identity to my brand was needed. I was fortunate enough to photograph Gemma & Ashley's wedding and she knows how to do this sort of thing. Gemma is a phenomenal artist and I love how she just knew what sort of logo captures me and my style of work perfectly. It had to have colour and it had to be funky and she took this on board wholeheartedly. After a few designs back and forth as I kept changing my mind - nightmare client ha! I am a sucker for the colour gold and really wanted a gold tone to my logo, and a design that would fit work across both areas of my photography. I love it :0) Gemma you are a star and thank you for your patience and to be honest you nailed it every time. Her gorgeous artwork and wedding stationary can be found here The Artwork Of Gemma Mortlock  go and have a look its simply beautiful.

 

Baby Oliver he is here! Herne Bay, Kent

The little man finally arrived after a gorgeous bump shoot in Whitstable, Kent it was so lovely to meet the new edition and what a poser he was! Baby Oliver was two weeks old at the photoshoot and he was so sleepy and yummy and if I am honest it made me a little broody and I had numerous cuddles with the little dude. I can't wait to do his Christmas themed pictures as well, something I have not done before but being an all out Christmas lover it is right up my street! So expect to see them on here soon! Yummy isn't he. :0)

 

Tara & Lee Wedding Sneak Peek Herne Bay, Kent

What a day to get married 15th August 2015, it was Herne Bays Red Arrow air show! It was incredibly busy and the whole town was buzzing. Tara and Lee got married at ChristChurch Herne Bay and the church itself was quite simply striking. During the service the planes flew over creating lots of noise and filled the church with a really cool dramatic atmosphere. Tara and Lee are a gorgeous couple and their love and connection shone through. Reception was held at Boughton Golf Club and location I haven't photographed before and what can i say other then the grounds and the venue were stunning. I had free range and was able to go for a little drive in a golf buggy another first for me! The groom and his boys were in good spirits and were up for anything. Lee had this idea of having all his groomsmen stage a golf swing at the driving range - i am just happy they never had golf balls ha! Thank you guys for choosing me to capture your day! :0)


Debbie + Sam Pre Wedding Shoot Tankerton Slopes, Whitstable (Sneak Peek)

So yesterday I had the lovely job of photographing Debbie & Sam at Tankerton Slopes, Kent, it was a last minute pre wedding photoshoot as they get married this Saturday which I am looking forward to photographing! I have known Sam for a few years now he was the gaffer to the football team my fiancé played for - PFC. I use to photograph the boys playing football every Sunday - I loved it and have made some lifelong friends through doing it. I have met Debbie a few times now and I love her brutal honesty a rare quality and something I admire she's so lovely and someone I can relate to. They brought their two boys Finn & Alfie who were simply scrumptious - typical mischievous boys - very much like my herd of boys! I ask the boys to help with the shoot, which was hilarious some of the poses Finn ask his Dad to do were so funny and they they were good sports and did as they were told ha!

All I can say is the love Debbie & Sam have for each other was breathtaking it was so lovely to see, they've been together for 7 years and are still madly in love. I spoke to Sam after the shoot as they hadn't had any dinner yet and he said I haven't eaten yet as Debbie is getting her nails done and I cannot bring myself to eat without her, which of course made go awwww he just said I love my woman so much :0) You two rock and I cannot wait to capture the emotion and love of your wedding day at Judds Folly, Faversham
