Jo & Anthony- Micklefield Hall

So, the end of the season last year, my website got hacked!! So I am missing a hell of a lot of weddings on my I am re-uploading them now. Jo & Anthony were married back in August 2016, in the gorgeous place that is Micklefield Hall, where I have been lucky to photograph a few times now. Jo and I worked at John Lewis together as budding web designers, so spent many a days moaning about our jobs, both since have left and are loving our new jobs, although I occasionally go back to John Lewis as a contractor.

I have never seen so much colour at a wedding, my first African wedding, boy did these guys know how to dance!!


Nicky & Tim- Harewoods Home Farm

This wedding was just wow.........I get this feeling in the morning when I arrive if it's going to be an easy wedding. Easy as in the weather is perfect, the couple are relaxed, the guests are fun and the venue is beautiful. Nicky and Tim ticked all these boxes. 

Their wedding was on top of a hill in the beautiful setting of Outwood in Surrey, some guests arrived in a London bus whereas Nicky was supposed to arrive in her dads Orange Opel car which he had been restoring in secret, they made it within yards of the venue when it broke down, so another British/German car, the Mini, had to come to the rescue and Nicky and her dad drove through the fields to get to there blessing under a big tree. 

As you will see in the photos, there is a German theme, Tim's family are German, and they had a Bratwurst trailer arrive in the evening to feed everyone the famous sausage, I had my first experience, one which for me, may have tasted better with a Stein in ones hand! (sorry Tims family) I am a girl who likes to burn my sausages! 

Having witnessed a lady falling off the hay bails, a child washing a plastic pig and a kid eating a microphone, this wedding is up there in my fav's of this year and so happy to have been there to witness this tie of British and German love. 

So if my GCSE German is up scratch (or my go to Google translator) then.......

Ich wünsche Ihnen alles Glück in Ihre Zukunft zusammen xx

Natalie & Chris- Froyle Park Country Estate

So how can I explain this wedding.......10 out of 10 as Natalie would say! These guys were so laid back and relaxed on the day I felt like I had been mates with them for ages. I even got a gift on the day....a wooden cut out of name, which is on my 'wall of love' at home. First up walking into the room Natalie was getting ready, another girl (who later was a bridesmaid) had a bride to be t-shirt on...I was like hang on.....are you fobbing me off with two weddings they weren't in the end....A lot of guests were Scottish (Natalie's side) and found myself trying to not speak in a Scottish accent, if anyone knows me, my accent is REALLY bad! Also Natalie in her dress...well as the Scots say....... A pritty face suits the dish-cloot, which doesn't exactly some it up as her dish-cloot was amazing, hands down one of my fav this season! (I hope I Googled this correctly)

My day was pretty easy, when my bride and grooms are so laid back, it's easy, plus I had the help of my assistant Sally from SomePlaceNicePhotography, who kindly helped me on this Thursday wedding. Apart from Natalie's step-dad spilling red wine on the table cloth (which I haven't Photoshopped out yet) the day was pretty much perfect........ so Natalie & Chris........Lang may yer lum reek xx

p.s this will be hilarious if I have got these Scottish interpretations wrong......haha


Lara & Howard- Grittenham Barn

This wedding, I knew from the start was going to be bloody good. These two are a couple where you instantly feel like you have been friends with them for ages. When Lara told me she had a two piece wedding dress, I knew, this is a good wedding.......

So when the Groom happens to mention 'oh my Mum is a Wedding Photographer' you think 'great!!' she's going to be watching and judging me all day (which is what I would do going to a wedding as a guest....WHICH IS NEVER)................BUT.........Howards Mum was anything but the person I described above, she 'got me' and understood the battles one Photographer takes at weddings (mainly not eating or drinking to sitting for a long periods of time)

Lara looked stunning, and most of my brides look amazing BUT no lie, Lara looked beautiful, her bridesmaids (mainly her sister) made me feel so welcome that morning and wanted to hang out with them all day. Sometimes my job is easy, some days harder, but this one flowed amazingly. Sometimes the little things people pay so much attention to at weddings, don't matter. Lara & Howard got their friends and family to bake their 20 odd weddings cakes (which they judged at the end in a Baker-off) Howards surname is Baker btw.. 

They had a celebrity turn up in the Best Man's speech.......David Brent.....we all know how that went....they had 'around the world snacks as the canapes.....and in their first dance they finished dancing with emoji faces on their heads......

I don't think I need to say anymore about this wedding....take a look.......xx
