Both Stef and Rick, like me are very fond of our fabulous Hitchin town, so for our pre wedding shoot we met up in town. We shared a coffee at Groundworks and had a chat about their wedding in a few weeks, we explored some varied areas of the town, whilst I took their photos. I get to travel all over for weddings and pre wedding shoots, but it's equally lovely when I actually get to do one close to home!  Both Stef and Rick admitted they were dreading being photographed, but I think you will agree, these frames show them, and their excitement to be married (their love of clothes!) and the relaxed fun people they are. It was a year to the day that Rick proposed to Stef, when I took their pre-wedding photos, what a romantic! Stef you are going to make a beautiful bride - I'm really looking forward to your wedding, it's going to be awesome. Here are some of my favourite photos from our shoot.

At a wedding family who have travelled a long way to share a couple's special day are often thanked in the speeches. This was very much the case at Verity and Andrew's wedding at Redcoats Farmhouse! Being Australian,  Andrew had alot of family and friends who had made the journey to share in this very special day. Verity and Andrew are one of the loveliest couples I've met, and it was clear that everyone was happy for them and for those who were able to witness their marriage. They seemed made for each other. Destined. I loved how their delightful, creative table names showed photos of them at the same ages, miles apart and living different lives, until they were finally drawn together. They are an extremely fun and kind couple, who had the best of days, both so very happy to be married. The joy rang out through the day, the guests and family all joined in that shared pleasure that these two are now one. This is what I love about weddings, the magic that tied everything up. I loved photographing them and the lush gardens at Redcoats looked amazing, so English, just the setting the couple wanted. There was also much silliness  and laughter, a couple who dont take themselves too seriously, they loved it all. Verity was very laid back and happy, the bridal preparations were calm and joyus yet excited for the ceremony! I was really touched as her bridesmaids all helped her in her dress, they paused and offered that final lovely task of zipping up to Verity's lovely mum. What a joy to see you daughter so happy and for two families to be united like this. The speeches were perfect! Andrew thanked each of Verity's friends and acknowledged what a great job her chosen bridesmaids did, but equally she could have chosen any of her great friends that were had shared the day.

Andrew had two best men and a best woman, they clearly knew him very well, and each played an important part in the day.

Andrew's very  talented friend Charlotte Willis made this gorgeous cut out table plan and all the name places. The table numbers were hand made too, the number corresponded to them at various ages and the photos of them, check out their cute little faces aged 1. All the way from Australia, a little bag of Aussie sweet treats was given to each guest. Mmmmmm Tim-tams!

I'm thrilled when I get to work with fellow creatives! Sam got in touch after seeing how I'd photographed another business, specifically this blog post for Farley's cool hair salon.  Sam is a designer who graduated from London, Central Saint Martins and is the brains behind Darkest Star.  She is at the very front of each creation and its manufacture. Quality, precision and dedication went into developing her own label of erotic lingerie designs (now I have your attention?) The items are very much about empowering women and sexuality. Sam needed some photos of herself, but liked how I also portrayed the business too. I was honoured and flattered as she explained, "I love your work and just know you are the one to capture me". When I find a designer or product I like, I want to know what their workspace is like, and of course love it all the more, for being hand crafted with love and dedication in this country! So me and my camera snooped about Sam's Hitchin studio one day, and found things that intrigued and engaged, things that explained her, that showed not just a beautiful woman, but an empowered talented designer, maker and craftsperson. It was a pleasure!

I love meeting up with a family and setting off to a family photo shoot. Giving them some precious memories of their children and how they interact. These four are such a lovely family, talented, creative, funny, colourful and stylish. Me being such a colour addict too, we chatted about suitable locations. I love the amazing, geometric, tribal pop art designs by artist Camille Walala.  This building is her biggest piece yet and they formed a perfect backdrop for a vibrant family shoot for Anna from Little Flea. The use of colour and Camille's signature Tribal POP style present a boundless energy that create show-stopping spaces awash with creativity and colour, which just make me feel happy. The graphic zig-zags and turquoise fields are nicely juxtaposed against the black windows, and the black 'sprinkles' just add fun and playfullness. I love family photo shoots, that really capture who your family are, tailoring them to something that fits in with you!  I joined Anna's lovely family at this amazing Shoreditch building covered with Camille's design. It was awesome. So are they.

Sharan and Martin were recently married in Mayfair Library, London. I do love a London wedding and on a bright Spring day I joined the couple for a short ceremony in Mayfair Library, followed by a fantastic meal at The Cinnamon Kitchen, an Indian contemporay restaurant in the City. This was a very small intimate wedding, Sharan and Martin invited just close to witness the ceremony at wedding at Mayfair Library. Sharan looked super chic in her simple vintage 1930's dress and Martin looked equally dapper in his Ted Baker suit.
