One thing that struck me about this wedding was the amazing tight family bond, Chelsea and Gav truly loved everyone they shared their day with. You could immediately tell, that this was the underpinning of an already great partnership. Chelsea and Gav were just elated to be husband and wife, and with their dear son Innes, they celebrated the day with so much laughter, fun and dancing. Chelsea had an amazing wedding morning getting ready in her home, packed with her nine bridesmaids and many other family members. She smiled, she laughed, she cried, she was supported by her amazing friends as she got ready to marry the man she loves. Their wedding took place on a freezing December day at Three Lakes Farm in Ware. She told me "I have so much to be happy about" Both sides of the family were cracking and enjoyed that Mariachi band, the amazing laser show that Gav set up and they partyed hard!

It was such a joy to photograph this beautiful wedding in December, having met at art school Chessie and Dan clearly were meant to be together. Their wedding was full of hand made touches,  a delightful painted table-plan canvas, sweet name cards and hand-punched snowflake confetti. There was a Christmas Pudding wedding cake and excellent wine flowed. The reception was warm and cosy, with candles and twinkly lights everywhere.

Chessie wore an amazing unique 70s vibe gown - a chic Ozzie Clarke-esque design she had made from her drawings.  She teamed this with a cosy fur shrug and a fabric floral headband and veil. The whole look was finished off with a breathtaking, utterly elegant and romantic arm sheaf bouquet of sea holly, berries, pink snapdragons and exquisite white bouvardia blooms which actually looked square!  Chessie was the perfect bride, relaxed, happy, smiley and just enjoyed her amazing day. There was a touching ceremony at Chelsea Registry Office and then everyone boarded a London red bus off to the cosy warm Christmassy welcome in the family home.

Wow, what a year. I feel so lucky that my job gives me such a sense of pride and joy. This year I have met so many amazing people and photographed in some of my absolute favourite places. If this is the first time you have visited my blog, you can find out more about me here, and follow me on your favourite social media channel including; Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+

 

I've learnt that regardless of any wedding detail and location, it is all about YOU, the couple who put your trust in me. The journey following booking is as important to me. I've loved getting to know my couples and got excited alongside them. I've photographed large weddings, two with 9 bridesmaids, I've photographed intimate small weddings. I've returned to many venues that I've previously photographed at, but always strived to make each set of wedding photos unique and personal. I've had fun in London, Sussex, York, Liverpool as well as in Herts, Beds, Cambs, plus I flew out to Poland for an amazing wedding there; each special day is uniquely beautiful and completely different.

 

I've taken a big hard look at myself and how I work, and feel elated when I read messages of thanks, saying I gave my all, how committed and part of each wedding I became. I've made new friends, and enjoyed staying in touch - when you share such an important day and are the one to help the memories, it's like you have a magic key. From first meeting, to pre wedding shoots, to contact before the wedding day, these friendships bloom. When I turn up at the wedding day, I instantly feel comfortable, trusted and able to be creative. This year I have also had the pleasure of some family shoots for some of my past couples, and that is an absolute honour and joy for me.

 

I've learnt the importance of what is photographed and that at some point the photos will be looked at with a touch of sadness. Your day is shared with all those who you love and care for, they are very important. Through my own loss in the middle of this year, I am reminded that there comes a time for all of us when we need to look back at someone's life and to cling on to the precious memories we shared with them. Every wedding I attend there is a solomn nod to family who are loved but no longer able to share the day.

 

I have a continual drive to be the best I can, to try new things and to learn more and push myself. I've had three awesome opportunities to do that this year with photographers I admire and have taken so much from. Other non-wedding work has been fabulous too, photographing for companies, businesses, actors, and fashion. I've had more weddings featured on top wedding blogs and magazines too.

 

I've selected some wedding photos from the past 12 months, thank you for being awesome and welcoming me into your wedding day. If you want to see that full wedding, just click on their names. I can't wait to do it all again in 2015!

I'm a photographer who loves crafting upcycling and a bit nuts about everything connected with old vintage photos and their processes. I love fresh wreaths, but am often drawn to alternative ones, so.. what kind of Christmas wreath does a photography lover dream up? This one! I've had so many comments about it, I decided to make a diy tutorial after making this year's alternative Christmas wreath.

 

You will need

A florist wire ring - £1.00

Old 35mm slides (these were 60s and 70s rejects my Dad was discarding recently)

Toy stuffing £1.50 a bag

Odd lens caps - bought on a market stall for £1.00 each

Old roll of film

Scrap fabric

Ribbon and glue gun

Step 1
Weave and mould the stuffing into the wreath frame

Step 2

Take a lenght of ribbon (I chose one of my brand colours) and knot the ends, then look around the wire frame (this will be to hang your wreath from)

Step 3

To hold the wadding in place I found some scrap gingham and cut into strips 2 inches wide. Wrap this around the frame, holding the wadding in place.

Step 4

Using contrasting ribbon, wind around the frame to hold the fabric in place, this wont really show, but I used it to make the back nice and the loops gave somewhere for me to thread some battery operated fairy lights.

Step 5

Place the slides around the wreath, before glueing with a hot glue gun. Taking care to squirt glue to the frame of the slides not the negative.

Step 6

Using your glue gun, fix the lens caps into place

Step 7

Make a 'ribbon' out of an old roll of film, secure the film cannister to the length of film with the glue gun, then make a bow, secure and attach with double sided tape.

Step 8

Attach on your door to let the whole world know you love photography and that you'd like photo-related pressies from Santa!

Or hang in a window and enjoy the images on the slides

Ta da! I'm so pleased with this, it's been in my head for a while!
