I'm an open book, first-meeting-hugger, disney lover, foodie, gemini, travel obsessed

Welcome to the blog

I have always loved the trend of matching-PJ photos (not to brag or anything but I was way ahead of my time with this, roping my reluctant husband into wearing matching PJs with me for a Christmas morning photo a few years ago!) Now this trend has slowly caught on and you can even buy […]

Christmas Wedding ideas to transform your winter wedding

First of all, what the heck is an unplugged ceremony? Picture this: it’s the moment you’ve dreamed of all your life. You’re walking down the aisle, about to marry the love of your life, surrounded by all your loved ones. They’re looking on at you in wonder and awe, having never seen you look so […]

Should I have an un-plugged ceremony?

Close your eyes and imagine an English seaside town. A soft sandy beach, rock pools, fairground rides and Mr Whippy ice cream. The muffled sounds of the 2 penny drop machines and chining music escaping through the open doors of the arcade. The smells of the sea, of fish and chips, of hot fresh doughnuts…every […]

Dreamland- Fashion shoot with Hello Miss Jordan

When you think romantic cities of the world, you can’t help but think of Venice. Cobbled streets winding through countless rustic alleyways, gondolas floating gently along emerald canals, the majestic expanse of Piazza San Marco overlooked by the beauty of Saint Mark’s Basilica; its no wonder the city has become synonymous with love itself. When […]

Paris Couple Shoot- Claire & Ini

You even struggle to work for free! It’s a difficult trap to escape from and a lot of aspiring wedding photographers give up on their dreams […]

Jack & Rose- Couple shoot Photography Farm Shoot Day

On our last day we wanted to venture away from all the tourist hotspots and see something different so- after a little nosey around on Trip Advisor- decided to visit Emporio. Such a unique and strangely beautiful place. It used to be the centre of trade in the 15th century (hence Emporio, meaning trade) and […]

Santorini travel diaries part 2- Emporio and Akrotiri

In September of last year I headed to Gascony for a wedding in the south of France. For three sun-drenched days we celebrated Simon and Lizzie’s wedding in a stunning 17th Century chateaux- Château de Mazelières .

France Wedding Photographer- Lizzie & Simon

That wonderful smell of salty air, the cries of sea gulls, the feel of the wind on your face, the twinkling of sunlight on the water. I’ve always loved everything about the seaside and as a photographer, there’s just something magical about shooting near the sea. Alice and Oliver’s love story is so beautiful and unique. They are both […]
