Hi folks!

Hope you're all surviving this heatwave, we're melting a little bit over at Clarke Towers.

You may have seen on Facebook or Instagram that Simon and I have now officially joined forces as a business team to bring you WE ARE // THE CLARKES! We're so excited to bring you our brand new website and company.

We have been 'The Clarkes' for a good while now, and work together on pretty much every shoot we do, so thought it made sense to bring our businesses together too. Now all our wedding, couples and family photography and films will live over on WE ARE // THE CLARKES at www.wearetheclarkes.com

To read more about us please have a look at our about us page.

There will of course be a transition period over the next few months but if it's wedding, family or couple information, enquiries, portfolios and blogs etc you're after please head on over to there!

If you're already booked in with us, please don't worry, everything is still the same! We have teamed up officially and just have a different name and website.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you over at WE ARE // THE CLARKES.

Anna & Simon



Katia & Kev - A pre-wedding shoot at Hitchin Lavender Fields

The gorgeous Katia and Kev get hitched tomorrow at the wonderful Swan theatre in London, we're so excited to be shooting their wedding, they are just our kind of people, kind, creative, fun and of course lovers of cats. 

We went to the glorious Hitchin Lavender fields to do their pre-wedding shoot. The skies were grey and moody which I think looked so cool with the purple hues of the lavender.

Here are some of my favourites, have a great weekend everyone!

Charlotte & Phil - A wedding at Brockencote Hall, Worcestershire

I really am so lucky to meet and 'work' with such wonderful couples and every post I say how much I love them and how lovely and fabulous they are, but it's so true!! And these guys are certainly no exception. Another fantastic day with fun and kind people, a wonderful venue and some uber delicious light. I loved the Mariachi Band, a lot, Charlotte looked just stunning in her dress, Phil so smart in his navy suit. These guys truly deserved such an amazing wedding, they really are so thoughtful, selfless and just all round blimmin' fun guys. 

Lots of amazing people made this day possible for Charlotte & Phil.
