Sophia and Anthony’s wedding was absolutely divine! You can read my full blog post of their wedding here! I remember those dreamy Autumn skies as we strolled along the sands just as the sun was about to set, throwing out every warm shade imaginable! It truly was a magical day, and seeing their thank-you card they sent me just reminds me of how much I love being part of my couples day!

When I am asked to be the one to capture a couples wedding, I always feel a rush of joy and excitement that they have asked me to be the one. It is a genuine honour and I love getting to know more about my couples and place their plans at the heart of my approach. I can’t even begin to emphasise enough how important this is to me. I am motivated to do my best for each couple I work with and create images with their ideas in mind too so that the final image collection is something we all treasure.

After the dust has settled and normality has returned, it always humbles me if couples take the time to relay how they feel about their images. The business of creativity is a fragile one and time is precious to us all, so to have feedback in this way is really something that means the world to me. Each week I visit my vintage suitcase where I keep the notes and cards couples and their families have written to me over the years. Whenever I need a kick of inspiration, I head back to these notes as a reminder of why I do what I do and I am always left with a sense of pride and a real shot of motivation.

“I keep looking through the photo’s and I can remember the exact emotion going on at that time – very special memories we shall treasure forever!”

This weekend has been so, so incredible seeing two families come together for the fusion wedding celebration of Lily and Viraj. Their Mehndi and Vidhi took place in West London on Friday and Saturday before everyone headed to Hampshire for their wedding day on Sunday. I feel so blessed to have been part of their celebrations and feel so humbled to have been welcomed by families and friends with open arms and hearts, which always allows me to shoot my best work. Thank you for looking after me and allowing me to feel part of everything. The whole day was planned by The Wedding Dolls and it was such an honour to be recommended to be part of this amazing weekend. Lily & Viraj had their civil and Hindu ceremony at Froyle Park and the whole day weaved such a beautiful fusion of their cultures. High fives to the team Jo assembled, Florals by Joanne Truby Floral Design, prop hire by Hattie & Flora, Priest Raju Panda Hindu PriestMandap Rivaaj Weddings HQ., Cake, Canapés & Afternoon Tea Urban Pantry Food, MC Jonathan Ian Waterman, Hair and make up Dolly Goes Dancing, street food Baba G’s Bhangra Burger, DJ Divine Musiq, acoustic duo Soulstar, dance floor Ronnie Diamond Aujla.

Steph and Dave had such a magical wedding at the Secret Garden in Kent! You can view the full blog post I wrote of their day here! If I remember correctly, we had some amazing light that day, which added to the already wonderful day! I loved Steph’s paper flower bouquet and the floral decorations were gorgeous! It was such a wonderful day and we all shared so many giggles whilst taking portraits. Little moments like those are what I love most!

Planning your Kent winter wedding is an exciting time. It is no secret that I love to photograph winter weddings and love the mix of often spectacular golden light and sunsets and lots of available darkness so we can create some really unique and epic night shots together. December Weddings can be totally amazing with the mix of seasonal festivities and wedding celebrations, it really feels like the most wonderful time of year! I’ve always invested in my skills and over the years have stormed ahead with my winter lighting, so regardless of the season you are safe in the knowledge that I can light things both on and off camera to create some really beautiful images. When planning your winter wedding there are a few things to consider when laying down your timeline and I’ll walk through these now, along with a beautiful mix of winter weddings I had the total joy of being part of and you can see full blogs of each wedding day by clicking here.

There are milestone moments on your journey in photography and yesterday was one of them. It was such a treat, to step into a newness bubble to meet beautiful Sophie, Lisa & Owen’s first born. Its days like this that are “pinch yourself” times, as I got to capture their engagement shoot and saw her Mummy and Daddy get married in 2013 and since then they’ve become great friends, living in the same beautiful seaside town of Ramsgate. One of the beautiful sides to being a photographer is capturing the significant moments in peoples lives and creating images for them to treasure and look back on in years to come. When you see a sequence of moments weave together like this, it is really humbling as it is such a unique vantage point to be invited to be part of and see life from. This year more than ever, I have started to meet the next generation, catch up on life since couples weddings and just see this incredible, beautiful thing called life, grow and unfold around people and envelop them in happiness and a deeper love for eachother. Seeing that, when you sit back and reflect on it is overwhelming and so joyful, looking back at all of the moments you’ve captured and how this weaves into so many people’s biographies, as well as your own story of your vocation. Each click is creating something that has so much meaning, more than you’ll ever realise, it really is mind-blowing and when I think about it like this I get really emotional. I shoot from my heart to time capsule emotion and feelings for people who trust in me to create images for them to connect back with in the future. This is my why. The ‘why’ that is at the heart of what I do, the thing that drives and motivates me and every decision I make comes back to, honest and authentic stories about life’s journey. I am adoring these moments with people and when doing your job turns into such a wonderful friendship, it certainly does feel like a blessing. Sophie was a total sweetie the whole time, snoozing and being super cute….it was hard to pick just a few previews of our time together and these are a few faves and one from our Price-Douglas photo journey together so far!
