Offley Place Wedding

Wedding Photography, Offley Place, Hitchin

Here is a little first look at Laura and James’s wedding photography at Offley Place, at one of my all time favourite venues!

Now, James made it very clear to me on his first email that his bride to be was ‘extremely camera shy’. Thats ok I thought, a lot of my clients say the same. When I met them both for the first time I realised, what James actually meant is that Laura HATED (with an impressive passion!) having her photo taken.

So no engagement shoot for this couple, the thought alone made Laura shake with horror. And Laura was adamant that she didn’t want any photos of her getting ready and even though I cried a little inside, (Offley Place’s bridal suite is stunning with the most perfect light!!), I knew it was the right decision for her. So it’s fair to say I was expecting a little challenge on the day. But you know what, Laura was a superstar! I honestly had so much fun with these two. The weather was amazing, there were lawn games, little bat boys, a wonderful mix of family and friends and an awesome band to finish of the night.
I still think Laura will tell you she HATES having her photo taken, but I really enjoyed taking her pic!
Congratulations guys x

Jade and Cyrus | First look Wedding photos

Here is a little first look at Jade and Cyrus’s big day. It was such a fab day, full of fun, love and the coming together of different cultures. I love being part of peoples wedding days, they are all so unique and special, and this one really lived up to that, bringing elements of both their heritage into their wedding day.

Sarah and Damien, Wedding at Latimer Place.

Here is a little first look, at the wonderful wedding of Sarah and Damien at Latimer Place. These two were SO relaxed and chilled out. Even when their little boy decided to hide in Sarah’s wedding dress during the service, they just cracked up and carried on. Getting married when you have children is not easy, I’ve seen with my own eyes just how hard it can be to juggle everything from getting ready to socialising with guests, eating your wedding breakfast to dancing with your partner. Kids don’t make any of this an easy task! But what was so lovely to see was the love and pride Damien and Sarah have not only for each other, but for their boys. Throughout the day I caught little moments when each of them took time to focus on their kids, involving them through the service and just ensuring that they knew that their wedding day was about not just about Sarah and Damien, it was about the four of them.


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

Lauren and Mark Wedding Photos at Hexton Manor.

What an absolute blast Lauren and Marks wedding was! It was set in the beautiful Hexton Manor near Hitchin and we were spoilt with beautiful weather and glorious surroundings. Lauren and Mark are the kind of of couple that are a true pleasure to photograph, they laugh so much with each other which is infectious and beautiful to capture. Here are a few from the day.

Erica has high emotional intelligence and great sense of humour which enabled her to capture the genuine moments of our day. We loved our photos so much and I always enjoy looking at all the other weddings she shoots on her excellent Facebook and Instagram pages. She is the queen of the candid shot which makes every photo shoot unique. – Lauren and Mark
