Where to start with this wedding! I have known Phoebe for a few years through a friend and as soon as she got engaged I secretly hoped that I may be able to be the lucky photographer to capture hers and Joe’s day. Well, I got my wish!! And it didn’t disappoint … not one little bit. There are so many things that made this wedding totally epic for me. Stunning setting (I have also always wanted to shoot at Hill Place so this was another big tick for me!), soft colour scheme, beautiful dreamy flowers, a Willow By Watters dress, flower crowns, a Shakespeare table theme and a ‘First Song’ instead of a first dance. Epic doesn’t even do this wedding justice!!! Phoebe and Joe had me in fits of laughter all day, as did all of their wonderful guests, and their ‘First Song’ was so romantic – it even made me consider doing one for my own wedding. Another huge perk for me was that I got to work with one of my all time favourite suppliers – Smallpiece Catering. Gemma, Ann & their team are the best caterers in Hampshire and put on one hell of a feast for these two, not to mention the unbelievable Croquembouche wedding cake! I bloody loved being a part of this wedding, thank you guys for having me. There are probably far too many images in this blog post, but I just couldn’t help it!

Stunning barn, beautiful dress, snazzy custom made suits, good weather & lovely people … makes for one very happy Maddie and one bloody brilliant wedding! Hilary and Darren are two of the loveliest people, who I first met a couple of years ago at Darren’s best friends wedding (which I also photographed!) and I was so excited when they asked me to capture their special day too. Tithe Barn is the perfect setting for a wedding, I love how cosy it feels despite its glorious size! Congratulations again Hilary & Darren x

Low key, intimate weddings have to be some of my favourite and from my experience the Bride and Groom seem to have a little more fun too! August and Alex did exactly that with their beautifully styled intimate wedding. The wedding was held in The Basing Room at Winchester Registry Office with the reception in The Outhouse at the back of the Green Man pub. From the minute I first met these guys I knew we were going to get on like a house on fire. August is full of vision and creativity and that really came across in the styling of their gorgeous wedding. Shout out to Catkin & Pussy Willow for the most amazing flowers!!! Enough talk, have a little look for yourself …

One of the best things about photographing weddings is that I get to meet some of the best people in the world. Becca & Mike definitely fall into that category! These two are full of sincerity and are such wonderful people that seem perfect for each other. Their wedding took place at the stunning ‘Green House Hotel‘ in Bournemouth. This lovely boutique hotel is perfectly set up to cater for intimate weddings, and the atmosphere is beautifully relaxed. The beach is a 5 minute walk over the road, which of course had me jumping for joy! A wedding full of the most genuine, lovely people, and such a fun day! Congratulations again Mr & Mrs Pop! (Absolutely the best surname yet!!) x

Hannah and Olly had a totally fabulous wedding in a little village near Andover, and they created their own ‘Smithfest!’. Olly is in a band, and so music was a key theme for them. Hannah’s parents have a big field behind their garden, and this made for the perfect setting to host their marque reception. Hannah chose to have big sunflowers in the girls bouquets and all over the marque as decoration, such a beautiful way to give the day a pop of brightness and colour. I had the best time with these guys, so relaxed and up for a laugh, they were so much fun to photograph. Thank you for having me and letting me join in with the festival fun!
