Mikey and Emily asked me to be their Cott Farm wedding photographer later this year, and decided to book an engagement shoot to get used to being in front of the camera before the big day! This was a lovely way to get to know each other, and Mikey remarked in retrospect he's so glad he had the chance to work on his posture before the big day!
Back in August I had the very special pleasure of being a destination wedding photographer for Sheila and Simon for their intimate wedding in France!
I have known Sheila's family since I was very small and it was an absolute pleasure to spend a few days in the hot sun near the Pyrenees mountains in the fabulous Chateau des Ducs de Joyeuse for a beautiful, family oriented wedding.
Kelly and Matt and I met in The Gold Lion in Newport in all the way back in January 2017 for a drink and a chat about their Nantwen wedding for the coming September. We chatted about their ideas, their dogs, their honeymoon and I was totally thrilled when they confirmed they’d like to book me for their wedding!
As some of you will have seen on Facebook, over Christmas I was offering gift cards for mini family shoot sessions. Bethan decided to give a gift card to her sister's family, and on Thursday we head to Llansteffan Beach for our photo session! We had a great time exploring the beach and rocks and stopped for a few family photos along the way.
Pavel and Georgina’s wedding took place at the beautiful Usk Castle in South Wales in July 2017. Usk Castle is a hidden gem just above Newport - it was one of my favourite places to relax during my time at University and when Rebecca of A Thing Like That told me we’d be shooting Pavel and Georgina’s wedding at the castle, I was sooo super excited!! This was a very hot summer’s day, and with the castle’s exposed brick walls and wonderful surrounding views I could have been fooled that I was on the continent! But sometimes the Welsh weather treats us to a glorious day such as this!
Tucked away in the trees in Pembrokeshire is the most gorgeous runaway wedding venue that goes by the name of Nantwen. Run by the wonderful Daniel and Jemma, Nantwen must be my favourite wedding venue; so much green, lovely exposed stone walls, so much natural light and best of all, Parsnip the resident cuddly cat.
Over 10 years ago I met Nigel at a gig in Cambridge, it was one of my first big shows to shoot and Nigel's band The Foxes were playing. We stayed in touch and over the years, I caught every Foxes show I could, and I shot promotional photographs for Nigel's solo work! Nigel and Gemma met a few years later, and Gemma and I worked together on photoshoots together too. Gemma is fantastically creative, having studied fashion design at university, being a dab hand at makeup, a brilliant baker for her alternative wedding cake business Haute Cakes and a dedicated model.
Claire and James' wedding took place at the very stylish Ace Hotel in London in March 2017. I shot this fantastic wedding with the wonderful Rebecca Rees for A Thing Like That Photography on one of those beautiful winter's day where you have that crisp feeling in the air and beautiful low winter sunlight gleaming everywhere.
