On Saturday I had the honour of photographing Amy and Lee’s very special day and what a wonderful day it was. Amy and Lee both looked fabulous, the venue was gorgeous and the guests were so full of joy to see them married.

Here is just a sneaky peek of more delights to come….

On Saturday I photographed the wedding of Helen and Richard at The Bear in Hungerford. There was so much joy and laughter and sunshine that I barely know where to begin. But I reckon by the time I see them again this little lady will be off and won’t need to hold Granny’s hands any more, so I think I might start with this one.

Helen’s gorgeous bouquet was by Martin and the Magpie. More of these to come soon too.

So last month I got to go and play with the amazing people at Aspire Photography Training. I had won a place on their styled wedding shoot and the fact that it was in Cumbria turned out to have its advantages – what Mum would not relish solo train travel and a night in a lovely B&B? But I digress. The day took place on the beautiful Graythwaite estate on the western shores of Lake Windermere. As a photographer, the opportunity to shoot utter gorgeousness just for yourself is quite a rare one, there were no “must get” shots, no brief, no expectations, just amazing styling, stunning flowers, exquisite calligraphy, incredible models (who were all real people, not professional models,) beautiful clothes and the most amazing location.

The theme for the shoot was summed up in four words – “autumn, bohemian, Cumbrian Country House” (ok, it is five!) and everything around the day flowed from that, even the lunch (pumpkin soup with artisan bread – yummy!)

I took the opportunity to really step outside my usual shooting style – I put away my favourite lens and frequently stopped myself taking a shot because it was the sort of shot I would usually take. Though I did have to get a shot of the shoes – that goes without saying!

Anyway, I will let the pictures do the talking, I am really excited about them – I hope that you love them too…

I couldn’t hold out any longer. These pictures are just bursting to be shared 😀

Just over a week ago I travelled to Cumbria for a wedding styled shoot with the gorgeous people at Aspire Photography training. It was a long way to go for a one-day shoot (though I have to confess I really enjoyed solo train travel and a night in a gorgeous B&B on the estate.) The shoot was held in the stunning Greythwaite Estate on the western shore of Lake Windermere. The gorgeous Ruth was not a model, but an art student from the local college. It is always brilliant on workshops and styled shoots to work with real people, as you have to create them very much as you would a client on a shoot – you cannot assume they know anything about photography or what you are trying to achieve. Ruth was totally amazing though, a real natural and an absolute joy to photograph.

When we arrived in the morning I was absolutely captivated by the nimble fingers of Claire Gould, who created this little beauty…
