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!

Sam & Emma | Secret Garden Wedding, Kent - Happy Anniversary!

I photographed Sam & Emma’s small intimate wedding 2 years ago today at the secret garden in ashford - beautiful wedding one that I am fortunate enough to work at often. I never got around to blogging their wedding so thought I’ll do a anniversary one instead! It was so hot that day, nothing like todays weather felt like summer - can never rely on British weather to do what its meant to can you?!!

The one thing I relate remember was how drunk the best man got (he’s a an old friend so I can say that on here haha) but also how much I loved their colour theme I don’t think I’ll ever tire of rose gold!

Happy 2nd anniversary guys hope you have celebrated in style!

Mike & Zoe | Winters Barn, Canterbury Kent

Crisp, sunny winters day set the tone for Mike & Zoe’s wedding. The light was glorious. The venue was at winters barn in Kent as always did not disappoint and the added sparkle of Christmas decorations in tow made it eye candy for me! I loved hanging out with Mike and Zoe which really felt like friends hanging out having a laugh at their wedding. We had mulled wine, gingerbread men, all the gorgeous Christmas touches which really made their wedding stunning and I LOVE Christmas so for me it was a really beautiful setup. Zoe looked absolutely stunning and her veil and dress had a real Spanish feel to it, in the morning I ask the question will Mike cry? She was adamant he wouldn’t and I even offered my services of giving him a thud so he would shed a tear but it was not needed as he definitely welled up although… who wouldn’t right??

We basically spent the day laughing and along the way got some artistic, natural photographs of them both who are clearly very much in love and if I recall rightly they have been together for 10 years if not more?!! To top the day off Mike & Zoe became Mr & Mrs Love how cool is that!!

I wish you all the best and look forward to walking the dogs together!!

wedding at, Mountains Country House Kent - Chelsea & Matt

The gorgeous Chelsea and Matt got married at Mountains Country house in Kent on the 7th February. The day was beautiful if not a little wet - good old British weather. That said spirit was not dampened!

This was my first time photographing a wedding at Mountains Country House and the venue itself inside and out was stunning.

Seeing Chelsea's Grandad waiting to see his granddaughter arrive was eyes welling up stuff and lovely moment that was incredibly infectious on all the family as the smiles got even bigger and showed no signs of letting up throughout the whole day. Enjoy the sneak peek and if you like what you see then please get in touch via the say hello page

.All the best guys :0)

Best of 2016, Kent Wedding Photographer

So 2016 was a big year for me! My busiest year to date although 2017 looks to be even bigger. But last year I feel I really found my style. I was nominated for two awards both for wedding photographer of the year 2017 which is huge and made me feel so proud that my work was getting noticed. I was regional finalist for South East and London via TWIA (The Wedding Industry Awards) where 30 other photographers were finalists so competition was tough - that said I am over the moon to be a finalist. I am still waiting for the results from www.bridebook.com (1st Feb 2017) so make sure you vote! I also got to go to New York a first for me! Fell in love with the city and cannot wait to go back. 

The images I have selected, which was incredibly hard for me - I have shot 30 weddings in 2016 and have 40 for 2017 have sat and looked at thousands of moments, ones that gave me butterflies, goosebumps and actually brought a tear to my eye, I do believe I have showcased my creativity, attention to detail and the love and emotion captured from a the day. It's a huge blog post because I have fallen in love with each of the images. My couples have meant so much to me and adore seeing how smitten they are with each other.  Each of the weddings and engagement shoots were as unique as themselves and I wanted to showcase that 'emotion' in its rawest form, truth, connection and crazy stupid love bringing it back to the couple and the reasons for getting married. I am eternally grateful to all my couples and the trust they put into me to document their day in an honest, heartfelt way. Captured feelings with integrity.
