Helen + Tom // St Mary’s, Goudhurst and Finchcocks Oast, Kent Wedding, UK


“…thank you so much for everything, you are an artist, a joy to know and it was amazing having you capture our day…”

Remember Helen and Tom and their beautiful engagement shoot in Greenwich Park? Well, these two recently got married at St Mary’s Goudhurst, followed by a fabulous reception at Finchcocks Oast in Kent and, oh my, what a pretty day it was.

I had so much fun with Helen and Tom on their engagement shoot and I just knew that their wedding would be full of fun and happiness.

There were beautiful flowers everywhere, think hair pieces, around the cake, decorating the church and all over the Oast. It was glorious! I do love flowers!!

Helen was glowing and it was so touching listening to the speeches and seeing the love between these two. Even a spot of rain during the final portrait shoot didn’t impact them. In fact, they happily stood in it still beaming from ear to ear!

Thank you so much Helen and Tom for allowing me to be a part of your day and to capture the memories and emotions.

Captured with my two Canon 5D Mark IIIs and my Film Camera (and my baby!), the Contax 645.

Lots of love,

Charli xXx

Vodafone London Fashion Weekend


Where do I begin with today! Little old me jumped on the train to London to shoot my first (and second) ever catwalk show!  And, let me tell you, it was awesome.  The other photographers in the photographers’ pit were fab and it was so nice to work alongside a bunch of truly lovely people.

The first show was a SS15 Trend Show which featured four of the top trends for this Spring/Summer, namely: Hyper Florals, Shimmer & Shine, Make It Monochrome and The Seventies Show (yes, flares are back in style!). My favourite… the tasselled skirt – I fell in love with this!!  The Trend Show was in association with THEOUTNET.com and featured designs ranging from Lanvin and Christopher Kane to Alexander Wang.

The second show was a Designer Show, the designer being HALSTON Heritage. Taken from LFW’s website “Roy Halston Frowick was the creator of luxury American fashion. Founded in the 1960s, the HALSTON label took the industry by storm, using his signature materials of jersey, cashmere, and suede to reinvent the jumpsuit, the shirtdress, and the classic caftan. Once dubbed “the premier fashion designer in America” by Newsweek, Halston was synonymous with the 1970s and the era of Studio 54″.  For all of you Sex and the City fans, Sarah Jessica Parker was once the President and Chief Creative Office for HALSTON Heritage – cool fact!

All in all, I am still overwhelmed at how awesome this was and am still pinching myself but, enough of that, go check out the photos below…

Carmel + James // The Elvetham, Hampshire Wedding, UK


“…in these photos you have made memories that we will treasure forever.
What an amazing thing it is to be able to say that you have brought that to someone else!…”

Carmel and James’ stunning wedding took place at The Elvetham, in Hampshire.  Carmel had flown to London from Hong Kong a few weeks before the big day and we had taken the opportunity for a coffee in Camden, London to run through the plans for the day.  The feel for the wedding was glitz and glam and wowsers is all I can say.

Working alongside Sejal from The Tale of Two (Wedding Planner) and the staff at The Elvetham was a dream. Sejal was super-organised and her hands on approach meant that the day ran like clockwork. I truly look forward to working with Sejal again in the future.

As I arrived at The Elvetham, I was greeted with beautiful sunshine on what I can only describe as a venue from a fairytale (and you will see later that Carmel made quite the princess… that dress!!). Carmel and James’ ceremony was in the afternoon which meant that as we left the ceremony the sun had nearly set.  This gave us the opportunity to dash outside to get some shots with the blue tinge still in the sky. Carmel and James braved the cold like pros and the results were beautiful.

The venue took on a life of its own once the sun had set… candles flickered everywhere, with sparkly lights and THAT marquee (I mean, really, scroll down and see the marquee!!!). With the black tie affair in full swing, the party really did get started and it was fun, smiles and laughter all the way through.

It was an absolute pleasure to capture Carmel and James’ day.  Their family and friends were such a lovely bunch and it was a pleasure to see my 2014 out with such a blast (quite literally, see the fireworks below!).
