Nicola & Eric - An E-shoot in Paris

We love these pair and we had a right old hoot in Paris, so much fun! Simon and I hopped on the Eurostar and met up with these guys pretty much as soon as we got there and went out to photograph them. We didn't want to go to all the typical cliche places and instead just went to all the spots that meant something to them. They love Paris and go all the time, it was ace getting all the insider knowledge on good places to head for drinks and delicious Parisienne food. We ended up making a full night of it and going out to celebrate Nicola's birthday at a lovely restaurant, with a giant Polar bear in, normal. We may have drank too many drinks and smoked too many cigarettes, well it'd be rude not to when in Paris right?

We can't wait to shoot their wedding at the end of the month, it's at the fabulous Hampton Manor which is a favourite of ours. 

Helen & Darren - A wedding at Iscoyd Park, Shropshire

Helen and Darren's wedding was pure elegance. Iscoyd Park is a beautiful 18th Century Georgian house on the border of England and Wales and was the perfect setting for their enchanting wedding. Filled with vintage details and a touch of glamour in Helen's Jenny Packham gown, it was impossibly romantic. 

Aimee, Oli, Evelyn and Maggie

We shot Aimee & Oli's wedding waaaaaay back in 2011 and I'm so pleased we've stayed in touch. We've done a couple of family shoots for them since and I've also done some portraits for Oli's architecture firm. We really really love keeping in touch with our wedding couples and seeing their families grow, it's a such a privilege to be able to capture it all for them. 

We went to Stratford-upon-Avon for this and had fun running around the park. They brought along their gorgeous family dog Ruby too. She's unfortunately passed away since which is so sad, I'm just pleased I could get some lovely photos of her enjoying herself with her family.

Carla and Owen - A wedding at Purbeck Valley Farm

We absolutely love nothing more than being by the ocean, so getting to shoot a wedding near the beach is just fab for us. Carla and Owen are such a fun, happy couple to hang out with too, they wanted a super chilled vibe and that's exactly how the wedding was. They had an outdoor ceremony overlooking the ocean and we went for a stroll on the beautiful beach afterwards, sand between our toes and a paddle in the water, it was ace. Their laid back tipi reception was back at Purveck Vallery farm, with delicious food, a great band, plenty of laughter and dancing. 

Carla and Owen loved Swanage and the tipi so much that they up and left London to set up a new business there, you can find them here  www.coastaltents.co.uk . I'm so pleased for them! You can find more info on their suppliers below too.
