Wedding in Collumpton, Devon

There is something very whimsical about the Devon countryside and it really sets the scene for a gorgeous wedding event. It has a relaxed atmosphere, but with a traditional English feel and charm. It was the perfect setting for Mike and Julie’s French and English celebrations.

Upton Barn and Walled Garden

This venue has been completely fitted out and every last detail has been thought of. The countryside surrounding the barn goes on for miles, and the walled garden is bursting with colours and floral scents. I couldn’t imagine a better spot for Julie (being a gardener) to say her vows to Mike. A little rain threatened the day a bit before and during the ceremony, but the staff were well prepared with umbrellas and ways to keep guests dry. During the cocktail hour and reception there was loads of space for guest to spread out and mingle, while the drinks and signature cocktails flowed.

The Wedding Day

The day progressed flawlessly for Mike and Julie, as they had done so much prep and planning beforehand. They were both truly able to relax and just enjoy spending time with their guests. Flowers, food, and herbs were a centrepiece of the day. Julie is a gardener in London and designed the most gorgeous bouquet with a variety of edible flowers and herbs and a gorgeous artichoke at the centre.  The speeches were done in both French and English to accommodate the guests who had traveled from the continent. Mike and Julie requested lots of natural candid shots of them and their guests, and as you can see there was joy and laughter all day long.

Wedding at Westgate Hall – Southampton Wedding Photographer

From the ruins of old abbeys, to the waterfront that has been the shipping powerhouse of the UK for centuries, this city has so much going for it. Plus it's right on the south coast with views out across Southampton Water, and the solent to the Isle of Wight. It really is a bustling, dynamic city. The Venue Westgate Hall is exactly as it sounds. A venue posted up next to the Westga ...

Love Shoot – The New Forest
"What on earth is a Love Shoot?" my husband asked me... Well it's when a couple want to have photos done of themselves, just the two of them, for no other reason other than they want to do it. Maybe they're married and they have kids who generally take centre stage in everything, including photos. Or maybe they're not married, but they're tired of the same old selfie pose they have of the two of them together (you know the one, sitting in the car with big cheesy smiles). A Love Shoot is basically an engagement shoot without the responsibility of having to be engaged. It's a day away from everything and spending time with just your love, and h ...
