Missing Autumn already? Then take a look at Hannah and Alex's beautiful October wedding. I was so excited when I arrived at Nonsuch Mansion for such a perfectly put together family wedding (including a special appearance by Dudley, their ever so cute pug) which saw Nonsuch Mansion at its very best on a perfectly sunny and cold Autumn day.
There were subtle reminders of Autumn everywhere (you will notice the orange and purple colour palette and beautiful details) but also some really relaxed guests and great moments - I hope you enjoy!
To introduce you to this blog, I could tell you about how Amanda and Paul didn't want an engagement shoot (which freaked me out) so we went drinking instead to get to know each other. I could tell you that Paul's family are Greek so this wedding had some of the best dancing I have seen for many years, including the traditional money dance. I could wax lyrical about Northbrook Park, Amanda's stunning Pronovias dress and her classy Manolos. Or I could just get on with it and share some of my favourite images of the day...
I had my first meeting with Jonny and Sarah at Maison Blanc in Henley, shortly before Christmas and they were planning a traditional wedding at their old local church (Christ Church in Henley). They had also just moved house to Cambridge, which meant they were planning their dream Henley wedding from a distance but they weren't going to let that get in their way.
Sarah's Aunt's cottage was an idealic setting for the morning bridal preparations (it was bang in the middle of Henley, down a side-road by the river making it quite tricky to find). One of my favourite images from the day was taken in traffic as the wedding car crossed Henley bridge on the way to the church.
The summer sun shone on guests (and cows alike) at Wasing Park - I'm sure this gave the perfect backdrop for guests to enjoy the fabulous decorations and details that Jonny and Sarah had arranged. Everything looked fantastic, so much so that I really struggled to reduce the number of images for this blog.
Thank you so much to the talented Andy for assisting and for Catherine at Celebration Cakes for baking me a huge slice of my favourite Coconut & Lime cake (which was delicious as usual).
Before you scroll through to the images you just need to know something about Jonny & Sarah: by their own admission, they "don't do things by halves".
I really value the time I get to spend with couples before their wedding day - it's a chance for me to encourage a relaxed and confident frame of mind, which makes it so much easier for me to capture moments quickly and effortlessly on the big day.
These are my favourite images from Robyn & Thomas' late Summer pre-wedding shoot at Hedsor House complete with beautiful grounds, very hot weather, great natural light and a lovely couple. I can't wait to come back to Hedsor for their wedding next year!
