“I have just gone through the photos and over the moon would be an understatement.

 How talented you are.

Thank you so much!”

Rebecca and Sri’s wedding day really was a total dream of a day. It took place at one of my favourite wedding venues in the UK Almonry Barn in Somerset. 

Rebecca and Sri were warm, kindhearted and fun and they looked after me and Philip so well throughout the day, not only lots of their time for some beautiful portraits and a delicious meal but also a constant supply of ice cream, happy days :) 

Rebecca’s style was so graceful and elegant and with the help of the amazing floral designer Amber Persia, her day was styled to fine art perfection :) 

Thank you so much Rebecca and Sri, what a true honour it was so capture your love for each other in all it’s beautiful detail!

In July we held our first ever Fine Art Wedding workshop called ‘A Beautiful Way’. It took place at the beautiful Almonry Barn in Somerset and it was the perfect day, a day sharing, new-friend-making, laughing and growing together.

Our 13 photographer attendees were all amazing, so willing to learn and try a whole new way of shooting in a Fine Art style. The feed back from them was truly heart-warming and we all left the day with huge smiles on our faces knowing we had all just shared something beautiful together. You can read some of what they had to say about it below.

Its was just the best fun styling and designing this day with my friend and fellow teacher Naomi Kenton, it’s pretty much based on how I’d have my wedding if I could do it all over again :) We knew we wanted to create a truly artisan wedding with a grey, gold and olive green grecian feel and it was truly inspiring to see the vision in our heads come to life with the support of our amazing artisan wedding industry friends. with a HUGE thank you especially to Rachel from the Rose Shed for the amazing flowers, Jade of Lady Evelyn for our amazing bespoke grey tulle dress and accessories and Gemma Milly for hand-painting all of the beautiful stationery for us. 

You can find out who all the amazing (UK!) talents are below. Here’s a few of my favourite images from the day.

Just wanted to share a few images from Chloe and Kevin’s beautiful, elegant wedding to show why it’s ALWAYS a good idea to be flexible on your wedding day to make the most of pretty light, even though you may be in the middle of your dinner.

These beautiful two were in between their mains and dessert but the golden light outside was just to beautiful to have to miss! You only get married once so down went the cutlery and we headed out into the lovely grounds of their wedding venue at Allerton Castle to capture some beautiful fine art wedding portraits of them before the sun fell away in the sky.

Here’s a few of my favourites :)

“We just wanted to send you this to show you how much we appreciated all you did on our wedding day. Not only were you just lovely to have around, you are so amazing at what you do. You are such a great team! 

We loved our wedding day so much and you guys really helped in making it so special! If we had to do it again, the only thing we’d do differently is having even more time having the photos! 

We both said that was one of our very favourite parts of the day were the two sessions in the lavender field. You made us feel so comfortable and relaxed and gave us some time to just enjoy being together.

Choosing you was one of the best decisions we made… we LOVE the photos!”

Luke and Jessica are two of the most beautiful, charming, warm, kind-hearted, creative, fun-loving couples I have ever had the privilege to meet. I’m not exaggerating. Jessica made her dress, bouquet, wedding cake and practically her whole wedding. And she did it so beautifully!

Being with them on their wedding day was a total joy. Their love for each other was infectious. As was Jessica’s beautiful smile. Photographing couples is always a huge privilege but making real friendships makes the whole thing even more special.

Jessica and Luke, I thank you both from the bottom of my heart for trusting me to capture your beautiful love for each other and I know your love is everlasting xx

Here’s just a little peek of the day of Emma’s beautiful spring bouquet but  you can see the full feature here :)
