Colin & Jess, Haynes Barn, Kent

I had the wonderful opportunity to capture Colin & Jess wedding in July. A last minute booking, they found me through a recommendation. We had two engagement shoots one during the day and one during golden light. So on the wedding day we was both very comfortable around each other and have become good friends. The wedding was stunning and Jess didn't disappoint her gown was full of sparkles and right up my magpie street! Colin who is a dap hand with carpentry made a stunning J&C sign which lit up. The wedding was beautiful full of tears and love!

I had the wonderful Jon Snapaway capture groom prep and worked alongside me throughout the day. Which gives a lovely grooms perspective of the day. 

Jess even managed to stack it on the dance floor :0)

The Best of 2015 | Kent Wedding Photography

So 2015 was a very productive year for me, it enabled me to grow as a photographer and tick off some things off my photography bucket list. I got to go abroad and do my first destination wedding in Spain. My work also got published in a bridal magazine which was completely and utterly amazing and something I have wanted for a long time and 2015 allowed me to have the guts and confidence to go for it.

I also got engaged to my boy no date set though as I am running put of free weekends as 2016 and 2017 look to be my busiest years. I am so bloody excited about it!! 

I have selected some images of what I feel are my favourites, but art is open to interpretation and what I like may not be what someone else likes. These images however were chosen based on a lot of things - technical skill, beautiful light, a moment caught on camera but unknown to the couple, love and finally realising a creative idea and seeing a collaboration come together.

I have been slack in updating my blog - a mother of 4, christmas and new year meant my children wanted me all to themselves. I felt so guilty though but loved having my herd with me.

So thank you 2015 for being so cool!



Amy & Max the Horse - Photoshoot

I had the wonderful opportunity to capture Amy with her stunning horse Max. I had the best day working alongside Marina at Occasional Hair & Make up  who did an amazing job, we've since worked together on a styled photoshoot and its fair to say we rock as a team! Amy wore a beautiful long gown with pretty little purple flowers in her hair. Max was so striking and absolutely loved the camera - the little poser! What I loved more about this shoot was that I had my youngest son with me he is nearly 2 he doesn't often come to work with me but Amy being an old friend was happy he tagged along, I managed to document a beautiful moment between my son and this giant creature - well certainly giant in his my boys eyes! It was so endearing and so gentle, a truly beautiful moment.

Looking forward to uploading a sneak peek of yesterday's bump photoshoot!! It was a scorcher of a day and even at 4pm the sun was still very hot. The location was bustling, you can always guarantee whitstable beach to never disappoint, with locals working hard, guys and girls sunbathing and families coming together to enjoy the sunshine it was a truly lovely day full of atmosphere. My couple was fabulous as well, at 35 weeks pregnant Beth did a grand job! Not long now guys till bubba arrives and I cannot wait to meet him/her. :0)

Maria & Jonny's Destination Wedding

I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to capture one of my oldest friends wedding at this stunning place Casa De Laila it was simply beautiful. With colourful umbrella's, paper pompoms, and tea lights dotted around the pool, I instantly fell in love. It was a scorching hot day but it never dampened the spirits, the sun was shining and so were the guests. The owners of the venue Ben & Anne - Marie were seriously cool people and was so relaxed you wouldn't think this was their first wedding of the year!! Maria looked simply stunning with a traditional lace wedding dress you oozed elegance!! With a heartfelt service, full of emotion and love I truly feel honoured to be part of their big day. Congratulations guys :0)
