Rachel + Mark // Destination Wedding – Petit-Bersac, France


“A stunning chateau and a magical wedding”

Where do I even begin with Rachel and Mark’s wedding! Stunning doesn’t really even do it justice. It was more than that. Authentic, honest, epic.

I had met Rachel and Mark a couple of times before their wedding (at their pre-wedding consultation, and at their engagement shoot). Having had an engagement shoot with me already, they were completely relaxed in front of the camera on their wedding day which always helps with the storytelling that I aim to capture.

Rachel and Mark chose two beautiful venues. The first, the Monolithic Church of Saint-Jean of Aubeterre in Petit-Bersac, France; this church is underground and built into the rock. It’s very cool and very pretty! It felt like a complete fairytale watching Rachel walk down the aisle, which I am sure is a feeling also shared by all of her family and friends!! The second, is Château le Mas de Montet, which is around a 10 minute drive from the Church. I visited the Château the day before the wedding to scout out some good spots for photos and I can completely see why Rachel and Mark fell in love with it – how can you not!! The tree lined drive, the vast grounds, the picturesque château – just, wow.

Mark, my husband, also joined me, to assist on the day and also to second shoot for me. We stayed in a lovely B&B, Chamber d’hotes Quartier Plaisance, which is owned and run by Julie and Ian. Julie and Ian were so accommodating during our two night stay and went above and beyond for both us and the wedding guests that were also staying at the B&B. I will be doing a separate blog post on the B&B very soon.

I just want to add a thank you to Sue (wedding planner) from Marry Me in France who was fantastic on the day and a pleasure to work with. Also to Pierre David (videographer) from Zen Film Works – their wedding films are amazing so if you are still looking for a videographer, go check them out!

Of course it goes really without saying but thank you to Rachel and Mark for allowing us to be a part of your special day. It’s such a privilege to capture true and real moments in life and I hope you will look back on these memories forever and always smile.

Katie + Christie // Destination Wedding – Umbria, Italy


“…you captured so many moments throughout the day – it really is a complete story of our wedding…”

Katie and Christie, where do I even start! Quite simply, their Italy wedding was full to the brim of prettiness.

I first met Katie and Christie when Katie was a bridesmaid at Laura and Andy’s wedding (click here to see a blog post of their wedding at Gaynes Park, UK). This time around, Laura was a bridesmaid, and it was so lovely to see her and Andy again.

Katie and Christie’s wedding was picture perfect. It started off in Tenuta di Canonica for the bridal preparations and I think you’ll agree that Katie looked absolutely glowing!! Tenuta di Canonica is an ancient watch tower located on top of a hill just outside of Todi, in the heart of Umbria. I arrived the day before the wedding and visited both the ceremony and reception locations – to say they took my breathe away is an understatement. It was absolutely the perfect setting for this elegant and chic wedding. I also had an absolute ball working alongside Boe (Botias Hair and Make Up) again – Boe was also the MUA at Laura and Andy’s wedding and I cannot recommend her work enough. Not only does she produce stunning hair and make up but she goes completely above and beyond to help, a complete gem.

On to the ceremony… Katie and her Dad arrived at Monte Castello di Vibio in a gorgeous Fiat 500. Monte Castello di Vibio is located around 20 minutes from Todi and is part of the Province of Perugia. This small medieval village is so, so beautiful. I had great fun hunting down some spots for photographs the day before the wedding! The ceremony was held in a church called Santi Filippo e Giacomo in a little square in the village with views overlooking the Umbrian countryside.

Post-ceremony, Katie and Christie enjoyed drinks with their guests before heading back to Tenuta di Canonica. I had great fun hanging out of my car window whilst capturing some shots of Katie and Christie driving back in the Fiat 500 (I will add that I wasn’t driving – important to stay safe folks!!).

The whole vibe of the reception was so chilled and lovely. Think guitar duo, drinks sat outside in the Umbrian sun, great food, great wine, a sweet table and a parrot that caught me by surprise a number of times saying ‘hello’.

Katie and Christie had a gorgeous meal with their guests and we snuck out a few times to take some lovely couple portraits for them to treasure forever. Katie’s brother, Steve, also surprised them with a game of All Star Mr & Mrs which was very funny and the good news is that they agreed on most things!

The evening do was started with a fab first dance and of course, limoncello (a MUST in Italy)!

I could probably write all day about Katie and Christie’s wedding and how gorgeous it was but I will now let the pictures speak for themselves.

Stunning couple, amazingly friendly and fun family and friends.

It was also an absolute pleasure to capture such a beautiful wedding on both digital and film cameras.

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your day and all of my love & best wishes for your future together.

Stu + Selina // London Engagement – Kensington and Chelsea



I had a lovely afternoon with Stu and Selina. We wandered around Kensington, London to capture some beautiful engagement photos (Stu had only proposed a couple of days beforehand!).

I cannot wait to capture their wedding at The Royal Exchange, London in November. I will also get to see the lovely Carmel and James again who will be guests at the wedding and whose own wedding I captured at The Elvetham, Hampshire – you can view it here. Exciting!

Enjoy a few of the photos below.
