Chuka & Sylvia’s Wedding

Chuka and Sylvia tied the knot at the stunning Ealing Abbey before battling it out with the London traffic (and rather a lot of German football supporters) to make their way to Stationers Hall for their wedding reception.

Much respect to Sylvia (and Chuka!) for pulling off such an amazing wedding at rather short notice. It was a beautiful day.

Here are a few of the photos.

Tina and Steve

When you live in London you forget how great our countryside is.

Shillington is a beautiful village in Bedfordshire and home to Tina, Steve and Marmite. With such stunning surroundings, it’s easy to see why they have chosen to hold their wedding here next month. Here are a few pics from our tour around the village.

Jenna and Callum, 3 weeks to go!

With Jenna and Callum getting married at the stunning Offley Place this month, we decided to get a feel for the venue and hold the pre wedding shoot their. We just missed the down poor of rain and were able to enjoy the sun (and wind!!) for just enough time to grab some shots. After this long winter it was nice to be out in the sun and the fresh air did us all some good, especially Callum, who had been out the night before on his works stag do!Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 2 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 3 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 4 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 5 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 6 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 7 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 8 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 9 Jenna and Callum © Erica Hawkins Photography 10


Kelly and Mitch’s engagement shoot

Before the egg hunt and chocolate induced coma, I had the pleasure of shooting Kelly and Mitch’s engagement shoot. They introduced me to the Ruislip Lido, the actual place where Mitch romantically got down on one knee and proposed. Kelly laughed, ‘he got a dirty knee and I got a diamond’.

We had a heap of fun, with a little more laughing and a little less photography than normal! All turned out well though, even with the giggles, light snow and slightly aggressive looking swans, we were able to get some lovely shots.

A lovely couple and a genuine pleasure to photograph. Already looking forward to their wedding next year.

Happy Birthday Bella!

With two adorable little ones it was very easy to see why Emma and Al wanted to include Jamie and Bella in their pre wedding shoot. Little Bella turned one this week so Emma wanted to capture a few shots of her and the family at her 1st birthday tea party.

Check out the amazing cake, it looks way too good to eat!

Here are a few from the day.


Carl & Jade.

I was so excited about shooting this wedding as I knew Carl and Jade would pull off a fantastic fun day, with lots of amazing details to photograph. Well I certainly was not disappointed. With both the Bride and Groom perfectly pulling off the vintage look the style for the day was set. Carl and his merry men looked superb in their unique suits, while Jade looked stunning in one of the most amazing wedding dresses I have ever seen (x2)! You could see the amount of effort they had both put into the day, and it was clear everyone loved every second of it! Here are a few of my fav’s.

Congratulations Carl and Jade!!


Georgie and Tom, a village wedding in the sun.

Georgie had always wanted to get married in her home village of Denston, in Suffolk, and upon arriving there it is easy to see why. With the church standing proudly among the beautiful houses and the countryside setting the perfect back drop to the village, well, you couldn’t really pick a more picturesque setting. The wedding had a lovely personal and relaxed feel to it, and with support and input from a number of their family and friends, it really was a celebration that everyone threw themselves into.

Congratulation Georgie and Tom!
