Stanmer Park engagement shoot: Hannah + Toby

I love this shoot so much. Hannah + Toby loved the idea of a golden hour shoot (the hour before the sun sets), and we ended up rearranging this shoot a fair few times because the British weather refused to play ball. 

Stanmer Park is one of my favourite places for engagement shoots in East Sussex - it is fairly quiet, and most importantly, really beautiful at any time of year, but ESPECIALLY on a warm summer evening as the sun is setting.

Now when we got to the park, an enormous cloud threatened to destroy the chances of golden sunlight, which resulted in a slightly comedic scenario of us literally chasing the sun across the field. But I am so glad we did!

Hannah + Toby share my passion of getting awesome photos and were prepared to ramble through waist-height grass and lay on the floor. Just awesome!

Here are my favourites from their shoot...

Best of 2017

What a year. I'm still in a bit of shock that we're in December already - where has the year gone?!

2017 was a great one. I met and photographed a bunch of seriously awesome couples, who had unbelievably wonderful weddings. Looking back over the photos for this blog post, one thing really stood out - just how bloody happy they all are! Which is really what it's all about.

I'm massively grateful to each and every couple for putting their trust in me to capture their precious memories - thank you. We had a laugh (and sometimes a cry!) and I've really loved every wedding.

I've rounded up some favourite photos from the year. I could have had a blog post double this size - it was tricky narrowing them down! But here it is...

Merry Christmas, and wishing you all an incredible 2018 xx

Gate Street Barn wedding: Hannah + Toby

I don't even know where to start with this wedding. It was just stunning. Gorgeous couple, amazing venue, perfect weather - a photographer's dream.

Hannah was boho perfection in her Rue De Seine gown. Carrie Macey provided the most wonderful flowers and centrepieces - when I walked into the ceremony room, my jaw literally dropped. I loved the addition of feathers to Hannah's bouquet.

And then we have the venue, Gate Street Barn. Wow. Just gorgeous. If you're getting married there and looking for a photographer - I would LOVE to shoot more weddings there.

But back to Hannah + Toby's wedding. I loved every minute of it. Hannah is an illustrator and drew the awesome portrait on the card box, and with Toby being a chef, you could count on the food being exceptional - Tandem Catering did not disappoint. YUM.

Theirs was a wedding that had you laughing one minute, and crying the next. Heartfelt, and filled with love!

Here is the story of their day..
