Clapton Country Club Summer Wedding

Maddy and Rupert // 11.08.2018

When Mads and Rupes booked me for their CCC wedding I squealed with delight at the thought of going back to this awesome venue having shot there the year before - here for your viewing pleasure. This space is the dream for couples wanting to put their own stamp on their day, and for a photographer who is all about textures, cobbles and CACTI.

The guys got ready at M & R’s flat nearby, and the gals had use of the The Loft round the back of their venue - a wicked air bnb space that oozes urban chic.

Their humanist ceremony was held by Rupert’s Aunt, and it was one of the most JOYFUL ceremonies I’ve ever seen. Filled with laughter, songs, hands in the air like they just didn’t care and general giggling - it made for some cracking shots.

We spent literally 5 mins snapping some couple shots in the Tram Store and then the real party began! Maddy was super nervous about having her photos taken, so on our pre-wedding shoot a couple of months before, we figured out that the best way to make her feel comfortable was to ‘take this piss’ and pretend we were shooting album covers. I am a HUGE fan of this game.

After some epic speeches (including a music video created by their mates on their join Hen/Stage ‘HAG’ rave) it was time to hop on the decks and start the party with an outfit change and a choreographed ‘first dance’ like NO OTHER.

The Winding House Summer Wedding

Jenni & Neil // 14.09.2018

I am a City gal at heart, and live for East London Warehouses. However, I also love escaping to forests and countryside - and so when Jenni and Neil showed me their venue, I was pumped. Hello East London meets Kent - it’s The Winding House!

reception-9322.jpg

This day was all about a celebration of J & N’s family, friends and love for each other. Non-stop smiles and dreamy light - I was in my element.

After getting ready together a super cute airbnb round the corner, we headed to the venue as the sun began to beam! With huge floor to ceiling windows, skylights and white walls, The Winding House is literally the most perfect room for light - if you like clean, bright images - this is the venue for you!

Colourful Festival Summer Wedding

Nadine & Dean // 25.08.2018

Dean promised Nadine that one day they would throw their own version of Glastonbury. I think they came pretty close with their EPIC festival wedding, tucked away in the fields of Redhill earlier this summer…

PortraitsLR-6323.jpg

(Possibly the worlds sweetest couple) N & D are creatives, and every detail of their day - from the bunting designed by their guests, to their best friends leading the ceremony - oozed heart and soul.

Nadine works (amongst her many talents) as a freelance video editor and we met on the set of a short film she was directing a couple of years ago. She has worked with many photographers and film-makers over the years, so I was truly honoured (if not a little bit terrified!) when she asked me to capture her day!

Westmead Events is the COOLEST space. Fields, long grass, space for a Tipi, willow trees, water, tents…it is everything you could dream of for a festival wedding! Lisa (the owner) was so warm and generous with her time and space, allowing us to get playful with smoke grenades and party into the wee hours of the morning!

Handily, Nadine’s bridesmaid Sammy is the owner of Deco Noir Events, and they provided the COOLEST vintage piano bar, with so many beautiful accessories, including an awesome old-school photo booth. Sammy is a total babe, and I can’t recommend her business enough - it made for the best relaxation point during the day and night!

As the sun set the party really began - first with a Ceilidh (my first experience of one - and I’m fully converted) and then with some classic indie rock and pop bangers. It was the perfect ending to the most perfect of weddings.

N & D are two of the kindest, creative and generous people you could hope to meet, let alone work with. They curated their wedding to reflect them, and ensured that their guests were looked after and entertained from the moment they arrived. If only we could do it all over again!

The Oak Grove Spring Wedding

12.05.2018

I met Jess and Dave when I snapped a pic of them with some sparklers at the wedding of my good friends Prudence and Tom (see their wedding here!) and was delighted when they asked me to video their stunning wedding at The Oak Grove, Upchurch. J & D are a delight to be around, and it would be hard to find a couple more unapologetically in love. Their day was relaxed, super fun and a wonderful celebration of their love. <3

Brockwell Park Pre-Wedding Shoot

I met Nadine a year or two ago whilst taking stills on set of a short film she was directing. She had emergency surgery on her teeth the morning of the shoot and came to set feeling less than great, but you would NEVER have known any difference. I certainly didn't! She bossed the day, worked beautifully with the cast and crew and didn't complain once. (She did hide half her swollen face with a Gabriel-style hair sweep, but I just thought that was her style!)

I was super chuffed when she asked me to shoot her and Dean's wedding. As a director/editor/general Creative I know she has a wonderful eye, and felt so flattered that she had chosen me to capture their day! 

lr-0808.jpg

We met for a pint in Herne Hill's 'Off the Cuff' (if you haven't been, go) before catching the sun set over Brockwell Park. It was the perfect day for a slow wander, and I am so in love with the results!

Vintage Disco at The Mansion

VDlr-8029.jpg

A couple of months ago I decided to try and push myself a little harder with my social media presence. As much as I love insta, it can be frigging exhausting at times, and when you are a small business it can also be super overwhelming. My fav CP coffee creative hub, The Paxton Centre, was running a networking night, focusing on how to ‘Make Your Social Media Work For You’, led by the incredible Saundra O’Shea aka We Are SOS15.

I came away from that night feeling re-energised and ready to get creative. So the next morning when an email landed in my inbox from Saundra asking if I fancied a collab, I thought (shouted out loud) HELLO UNIVERSE. 

VDlr-7571.jpg
VDlr-7719.jpg
VDlr-7597.jpg
VDlr-7685.jpg
VDlr-7788.jpg

Our Mission Statement:

"The shoot is set within the grounds and mansion of Beckenham Place Park; a beautiful setting where the once forgotten Manor is journeying through a renaissance. The transition is being guided by the family responsible for metamorphosis of the Bussey Building in Peckham and has opened up this majestic building for the community to enjoy. 

Our narrative is the modern couple, hetro as well as same-sex. The bride loves vintage but adds her own twist with glitter and attitude. This is a rock 'n' roll take on traditional vintage. This bride is confident in her own skin, unapologetic, loving and vibrant. 

Colours are bright and bold, flowers are wild, bags are glittery and the mood is joyful."

VDlr-7820.jpg
VDlr-8337.jpg
VDlr-8284.jpg
VDlr-7846.jpg

I really wanted this shoot to be about more than taking pretty images. I wanted to work with female led small business and suppliers with the interest of women supporting women, working with BAME models, and filling Beckenham Place with creative souls. 

I like surrounding myself with badass women who inspire me. So I sent a lot of insta DMs convincing lots of beautiful women to model for us, do hair and make up for us, loan us their products/time/energy/presence…and thankfully… they said yes!

VDlr-8232.jpg
VDlr-8220.jpg
VDlr-8531.jpg
VDlr-8498.jpg

Saundra did a fantastic job of sourcing dresses from the wonderful Kitty and Dulcie. They produce Vintage inspired gowns at very affordable prices (I'll be blogging about them later this month in more depth) and were the perfect fit for our vision.

I had already worked with Love2Sparkle a couple of years back on one of my first styled Wedding shoots. I love her attention to detail and colourful pieces, and she's also just really, really lovely!

VDlr-8868.jpg
VDlr-8885.jpg

Lizzie's bouquet's were beautiful and they smelt A-mazing too! She matched the colours to the flower crowns and kept them wild and colourful. I love her added ribbon detailing.

Saundra's bags brought the 'rock n roll' to the table, and I love how much of a statement piece they can be. I'll also be blogging separately about her beautiful pieces later this month and can't wait to tell you more about her products. (I'm getting a custom bag made from her and I am SO EXCITED about it!)

The dress below was supplied by the fabulous CollectIF, who have just launched a new bridal range. I love the soft details and pastel colours, which were complemented by Lizzie's gorgeous flowers.

Jewellery was supplied by The Lovely Edit (another blog to come). Laura is a self proclaimed 'jewellery magpie' and the geometric pieces she sent us were a gorgeous embelleshment to our looks.

The giant task of hair and make up was effortlessly dominated by my girls Helen, Rosie, Rachael and Rosi. They had 8 models to work with over a really short amount of time, but as well-seasoned artists they smashed out 8 totally unique and wonderful looks. These ladies are absolute professionals as well as just being super lush and really cool. (Links to all their stuff at the end).

The fabulous Ally from Clean Heels sent us some of her Heel Stoppers to protect not only our shoes but also the flooring of Beckenham Place. These babies are a god-send <3

VDlr-8744.jpg
VDlr-8831.jpg

This day was about bringing colour, bold looks, diversity and rock n roll to Beckenham Place, and it was a dream to be a part of. I have to say a huge thank you to everyone involved and I can't wait to get these images out there! Speical thanks to Claire who held the day together like glue and Victor for following us all around with a camera.

Brighton Engagement Shoot

8.03.2018

Claire and Chris are two of my favourite people in the whole world. (Don't tell them that - I don't want them knowing I'm nice about them behind their backs.) In August of 2019 I'm going to be a Bridesmaid at their wedding and I am SO excited to a) see them get married and b) actually be in some wedding pictures myself! I think I might have been more excited when they asked me to do their engagement photos than I was when Claire asked me to be her Bridesmaid...these two are just so CHIC and KEWL and as Brighton is their fav hang-out spot it just had to be done. Take a peek:

Considering it had only been a few days since 'The Beast From The East' struck us, the weather was pretty mild and we actually had some sun! After a walk on the beach-front we retreated to The Laines to escape the sea-breeze and explore gorgeous streets on the hunt for quiet and colourful spots (and there were plenty).

Claire and Chris are two of the most generous, caring and intelligent people I know and their wedding day is going to be SO special. It'll be the first time both their families are in the same country (let alone room!) as Chris is from the States, and I know they are going to put their own twist on every aspect of the day. I just can't wait!

Richmond Park Winter Wedding

10.02.2018

In 2014 my good friend Shorts (she's small) invited me and my boyf along to Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium. I had been to a Festival every summer since I was 15 so was a straight-up 'Oh Hot Dyam.' We were going with Shorts' brother Penz (I give people nicknames it's an addiction) and his mates Rimmer (can't take the credit for that one) Katy & Darren. We were a bunch of mismatched goofballs who met in St Pancras, hopped on the Eurostar to eat waffles and party to Portishead, and three years later K & D asked me to be their Wedding Photographer. A sweet story ain't it? The waffles were dyaaam sweet.

Ask anyone who knows either of these two to describe them and I have no doubt the answer will be something along the lines of 'they are just the sweetest, kindest people in the world.' I knew this day was going to be perfect - whatever they did, because they are so meant to be together. But enough waffling - let's see some pics!

Katy and her best women were getting ready at the stunning Petersham Hotel right by the entrance to Richmond Park. They had a whole suite to themselves and the most beautiful balcony overlooking the park. It was a cold and grey day, but this didn't damped spirits one bit! The locations of the day were all totally stunning so it was never going to be an issue if the weather decided to be a bit pants. The boys got ready at Katy and Darren's pad and I made sure we had time in the morning to get over to them also (mostly to see Mabel the cat but a bit to see Darren too. I suppose).

Katy's dress was a stunning Lillian West design bought from Willow and Lace Bridal Boutique in Tealby, Lincolnshire and the Bridesmaid's dresses were from Lindybop. The boys wore suits from Scope and Darren's came from Edit Suits. I love the purple theme that ran throughout the day and felt suited to being in London's largest Royal Park!

Pembroke Lodge, tucked away in the heart of Richmond Park, is a beautiful location. Surrounded by gardens, greenery and deer, it has a intimate and calming feel. The staff are not only lovely but awesome at what they do and they made sure the day ran without a hitch. It's also such a great venue for all-weather-occasions. With windows all around the light floods in and makes for beautiful images!

We quickly took some 'formals' in front of the beautiful fireplace before I snuck Katy & Darren off to have 5 minutes to themselves. I adore the pillars in the walkway that links the reception room to the entrance and was so happy we got to snap some quiet moments before the sun set. How stunning is this Bride?!

Katy and Darren very kindly invited me to sit with the guests at dinner time (after some adorable speeches) and I can safely say the food was INCREDIBLE. The desert was my favourite - a super light meringue with forest fruits - and that's coming from someone who is very much savoury over sweet!

Before the dancing kicked off (The Peaks were the band and they brought the party!) was the cutting of the cake. This cake was incred and was the talk of the night! A masterpiece of cheese and colour - it looked genuinely beautiful. Katy & Darren's first dance was, of course, super cute and I had a great time on the dance floor catching some enthusiastic movers and shakers! My favourite prop of the day was the Danger Mouse cut out...always great to have a photo-op moment on the dance floor and this was no exception.
