Wedding at The Farmhouse at Redcoats, Hitchin

Holy smokes, this wedding was amazing! Catherine and Mike pulled off the ultimate chilled out, outdoor, stunning, summer wedding. IN APRIL! Everything about their day was just beautiful. They tied the knot at one of my favourite local venues, The Farmhouse at Redcoats and when the weather looked like it was set to be a record breaking scorcher they decided to get married outside.The venue looked so beautiful and I kid you not, Catherine looked like an actual film star, perfectly paired with her handsome beau. One of my favourite moments of the day was when her friends gifted her and Mike a Cat (yes a cat!). It was a fab moment to capture. Mike is the kind of guy that you can’t help but smile around and he had his guests roaring with laughter throughout his speech. When I received these lovely words from them shortly after the wedding, I did my little happy dance.

“What can we say ?!
I have never seen anyone work as hard as you did on Saturday !!
Thank you for being so accommodating and adaptable to our different requests. We are sorry it got chaotic at some points, but you handled it so we well, and we really do appreciate it. Thank you for being so aware of us, and sensing when we needed a moment to ourselves to take it all in. One of our highlights of the day was the 30minutes we spent with you in the Garden capturing the emotion of what we had just been through….We hope our paths cross again soon and would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our Family & Friends. All the best Mike & Catherine




Jessie and Mike – Pies, Pints and Ceilidh Dancing

I can’t tell you how much I love Jessie and Mike. Jessie is my cousin and one of my best friends and I have been excited about her wedding to Mike before they even knew they were getting married. It lived up to my expectation and they pulled off this super cool chilled out wedding day in pure Jessie and Mike style! I love you both so much. xxxx


Daria and Sergey – Offley Place Wedding

What happens when a young beautiful Polish girl marries her handsome Russian mister? I’ll tell you what happens, a whole load of shots and an awesome party. Not every couple have the option to have all their family join them on their big day, and when your roots are international you find your close friends become your family. What was lovely to see at this wedding was how strong the bond was between Daria and Sergey’s friends. They are family and they helped these too celebrate their day in true style. A special shout out to the mums at this wedding, who not only had me smiling most of the day, but the pride and love their children had for them was pretty special!


Joanne and Gavin – De Vere Latimer Estate

I had a blast at Joanne and Gavin’s wedding on Friday. It was so much fun to capture even if it was a tad hot! Take note future couples, if you’re going to take a little trip during your first dance, go big or go home! These two pulled it off like masters from strictly, straight back into their dance, no one really noticed.


Alice and Rob, Wrest Park Wedding

What can I say, this wedding was one of my all time favourites. Alice and Rob got married at the beautiful Wrest Park, a venue that made my job effortless (well almost) and a couple that beamed with happiness, the perfect mix! A huge congratulations to you both, sorry you have over 700 images coming your way, I just couldn’t edit them down any more than this!!


Karen And John, The Wedding at Hitchin Priory

I really enjoyed myself at Karen and John’s wedding, not just because it was my first full day away from the newbie doing a job I love, but because the wedding was lovely. Karen and John make a fab couple and it was nice to shoot at Hitchin Priory such a great venue super close to home.

Here are a few shots from the day.

 


Chris and Russell, The big day.

Here are some photos from Chris and Russell’s wedding at St Michael’s Manor in St Albans. It was such a beautiful and intimate wedding and Chris absolutely rocked her stunning wedding dress! A gorgeous couple and a truly lovely day!
