South farm in Summer, sun streaming through the packed gardens, a family of ducklings on the pond. Guests all excited about sleeping in the gypsy caravans or camping on site...everyone smiling. Hayley was a beautiful bride, she beamed as she showed me her dress, her shoes, her flowers. She was thinking of other people all the time, getting her nana a slot with the make up artist and hair dresser too, I could tell she enjoyed making other people happy.  She really had the day she dreamed of and getting stuck to enjoying it came easy. When I arrived on the morning of the wedding, she was with her mum, Dad, sister, sister's boyfriend and nan, all decorating the venue how she wanted. It made me smile that she asked me where I thought some extra decoration would look good.  Each visit to South Farm I like to make each set of photos special to that couple. I look at these and really feel they sum up their day. A very small close family ceremony, followed by lots of mingling and an afternoon with everyone else arriving, then a great South Farm meal. It was so relaxed and I personally had the most time ever with the couple, which is a reflection you will see below in just how many photos of them there are here. A couple of guests were late arriving, so as the wedding party were all ready, this gave me extra time to take photos of Hayley, her lovely sister and bridesmaid Emma, and their Dad 'Papa Smurf' who was the proudest man on this day! The registrars were the lovliest, such great words, it was all very touching. Hayley and Brett loved their day, their vows, their meal, the speeches, their party. Just how a wedding should be. No rules, just do what you feel is right for you. And enjoy each moment. SO many times I heard Brett say how beautiful his wife looked. And she did. Congratulations to you two, you deserve such happiness, Im so glad to have been a part of this.

There was such a relaxed feel to the whole day, setting the idea here with this lovely sign made by a friend of Hayleys, just sit where your heart desires.

Hayley and Brett wanted no theme, just the pretty flowers and they collected (and drank) all these little biere blond bottles, which were lovingly cleaned by Brett and lace stuck around them. The little striped bags on each place setting held these sweeties.

Seeing Hayley's nan really 'getting the treatment' showed just what a lovely close family they all were. She loved it! Had her toes and fingernails done a modern tangy orange by Emma, Hayley's sister and also had make up and hair do!

Laura and Paul are two of the kindest warmest people Ive met. As their day unfolded and it was obvious just how much they were made for each other, how they brought out the very best in each other and were over the moon to be husband and wife. They both exchanged beautiful vows and the speeches as ever, really got to me. I love that we had the chance to meet up and I totally got Paul's crazy sense of humour. The importance of sharing their day with family and friends was so apparant. Paul's two best men, sang a hysterical song during their speech and supplied him with a spoof photo of him wearing a Sunderland football team shirt (Not his team you understand). The day was amazing. Laura is ONE talented lady, she had designed and with friend and family's help had made all the exquisite details that were such a joy to look at. The stationary was beautifully designed, printed and co-ordinated. I loved taking it all in with my camea - there were hundreds of hand made decorations, bunting, favours and pom poms, the barn and table settings were the prettiest I had seen. Laura looked amazing in her Justin Alexander dress, with fabulous floral crown and tied bunch bouquets with peonies and succulents too. They chose the lovely Tewin Bury Farm to get married at, its a beautiful venue near Welwyn garden city, the rain held off and everyone loved the day. Take a look at their amazing wedding. And big thanks to you both, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you, I wish you all the happiness you deserve.

Karen and Mark are two of the most fun loving people you could ever meet. Their pre wedding shoot had lots of laughs and giggles and I was sure I knew just how their wedding day was going to be. Karen chose a grecian style dress which she looked amazing in. The flowers were all multicoloured as were the grooms tie, this matched the vibrant colours of the wildflowers and butterflies at their venie. It was a beautiful marriage ceremony, by the groom's father, who is a minister, so amazingly touching to be married by your DAD! I always love capturing those ceremony expressions, but these   ones between the groom, bride and minister mean so much more here. Then it was off on the hottest and longest day of the year in the cutest white open top Beetle, to the fantastic Butterfly World Project in St Albans for the party. The bridesmaids all went into a white campervan for the journey too. I loved photographing this wedding, the team at Butterfly world were amazing and everyone was so friendly and happy- guys you deserve every happiness you truly are made for each other!  Please take a look at their lovely day.

Marta and Cliff had a chic, intimate and unique wedding at Hotel Bohema, a most beautiful Art Deco hotel in Bydgoszcz. There were lots of photo adventures as I joined them in the 1920s car and jaunted around the brides home city. Bydgoszcz (I pronounce that Bid-gosh-shht) is a beautiful place. I cannot tell you how honoured I felt when Marta asked which dates I was available and would I travel to Poland! She is Polish, Cliff is English and they'd decided they wanted it in her home town. I fell in love with Bydgoszcz as much as I did this couple. They are laid back, positive people, kind, thoughtful and so right for each other. Martas short, chic dress was made by Karolina Piech and teamed with strappy Jimmy Choos. I thought she looked like Audrey Hepburn, and a few other people agreed. After a legal ceremony for just immediate family it was back to the Hotel Bohema for a drinks reception and meal. It was an incredibly fun day, the photos and time around the city was a big part of what the couple wanted. Its a long blog post and I had to leave so many great parts out, but Id love you to take a look and feel free to leave me a comment at the end. This is just a selection to retell the day, friends and family can obtain the password to the online gallery from the bride. So please take a look at what was an incredibly happy day for them, and for me.

The gorgeous car owned by the hotel which the couple (and me) got to travel around in is a delightful Citroën Traction Avant.

We went via the amazing 1920s Citroen back to Hotel Boheme for a reception welcome in their gardens.

Marta and Cliff locked a padlock to the bridge and threw their keys in the river...

There were alot of bubbles! They always say that they both 'live in their bubble', hence they love them so much!

The chef made a dessert with fresh fruit, cream and liquid nitrogen.

mloda-para-bydgoszcz-Poland-Hotel-Boheme_0075.jpg

Then he made some bite sized 'frozen' pieces like little mouthfulls of meringue, for each guest to pop in whole! COLD!
