Welcome to the blog!

Are you planning a micro wedding and want it to be as intimate and sentimental as possible? Well you’d better take notes, because these two absolutely nailed it. Rose and Jack’s original wedding plans were dealt a series of hammer-blows. Covid restrictions evaporated most of their wedding funds before anyone said, ‘I do’, and by […]

The best tip EVER for an awesome first dance!

The idea of escaping together to a foreign country is a big part of what makes eloping so romantic. But let’s face it, a trip to Hawaii is off the cards for the time being, so we’re going to have to work with what we’ve got. And with the right styling and a knockout dress, there’s nothing to stop you from having the vibes of a destination elopement right here in the UK.

Can you have a destination elopement in the UK?

Galia Lahav is one of my favourite bridal gown designers of all time. I’ve been following them forever on Instagram and their designs are just stunning! Have a look through their website when you get a chance, literally every dress in every
collection is truly breathtaking. And if Galia Lahav’s prices are a little out of your budget? Well then, I’m afraid you’ll have to just cut a few people off the guestlist! I’m sure they’ll understand when they see the photos of you in one of theseexquisite gowns.

Here’s why the world is obsessed with Galia Lahav wedding dresses!

For every boho bride, there must be the perfect boho dress. Julita London prides itself as “an independent wedding dress atelier for starlit souls embracing individuality. Designs that evoke freedom and break tradition, gowns are about romance rather than rules.”

Boho beach wedding inspiration – Julita London dress

Can you imagine a more stunning setting for a destination wedding than the tropical island of Jamaica? I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the most intimate wedding at Royalton Blue Waters / Royalton White Sands, and am still having swooning flashbacks that make me feel jealous of my past self! White Sands and Blue Water are the same resort but have different buildings and different styles of accommodation. They both meet in the middle and as a guest, you have full access to the same facilities, dinner and breakfast options, onsite inclusive resort restaurants, pool area and entertainment. It really is a paradise and the most magical setting to say ‘I do’! Lee and Lisa’s intimate wedding with just 10 guests was the ultimate family affair, they made me feel so welcome and I was so honoured to be a part of it.

Do you want to know the secret to shooting killer pre-wedding, engagement or wedding portraits in Oia Santorini?

The best tip I can give you is to sacrifice your lie in, wake up before sunrise and go when no one is around. You’ll usually get the occasional photoshoot or influencer there at the same time, but it won’t be as crazy busy as it is during the day.

Pre Wedding engagement photoshoot Oia Santorini

This is a topic I see coming up time and time again. Whether it’s clients, random people, inspiration accounts, blogs or magazine accounts, from time to time they all re-share images without correctly crediting the source. Sometimes it’s because people don’t understand the etiquette; sometimes it’s people who should know better but are just being lazy!

Why crediting online is so important

It’s no secret that Santorini holds an incredibly special place in my heart. This year was the second time I’ve visited and it will certainly not be the last. The weather, the magical quality of light you can only capture on this island, the people, the food, the views- it’s a lovers paradise. If you’re looking to elope, say your vows somewhere truly special I would not hesitate to consider Santorini. With an inspirational elopement at Grace Hotel Santorini Imerovigli it is a hidden treasure on the island with volcanic views of the caldera, the most glorious sunset and stunning balcony views for your ceremony.

Elopement at Grace Hotel Imerovigli Santorini Greece

Beacon House in Whitstable Kent will always have a special place in my heart. It was originally the venue Jonathan and I had planned to get married at but once our guest list gradually got larger it sadly wasn’t meant to be. However on our wedding day we still took a walk there and had some of our wedding portraits in their beautiful gardens on the tree swing. I’ve shot another elopement at Beacon House since and it still remains my favourite wedding venue in all of Kent.
