Harriet & Jamie's Wedding - Hendall Manor Barns

Harriet & Jamie had their beautiful Spring wedding at Hendall Manor Barns in East Sussex. Harriet is a wedding & event organiser so she knew exactly what she wanted and it was so much fun to photograph! So many stunning flowers everywhere and lots of beautiful details making it really personal, she really had thought of everything!

When she arrived at the church she looked absolutely sensational in her blush wedding dress, I loved it! After the ceremony we took a few photos in the grounds of the church as it was a special place for Harriet, then Harriet & Jamie made their way to Hendall Manor Barns with the bridal party in a fleet of Mini's, and the rest of the guests in a red double decker bus.

I was spoilt for choice with photo opportunities at Hendall, it really is a photographers dream! Harriet & Jamie were so relaxed and happy in front of the camera, they were a joy to work with and we were so lucky with the weather.

The tables and decorations looked amazing for their banqueting style wedding breakfast. It really suited the room and meant that Harriet & Jamie could look out and see all of their guests during their meal and speeches. I don't think anyone will forget Jamie's speech, he announced to the room that Harriet is pregnant and held up the image of their scan! The whole room erupted! I have never seen anything like it, it was incredible and amazing to be a part of such a special moment. 

Just when I thought the day couldn't get any better, we were blessed by the most amazing sunset! It was so romantic. The whole day was an absolute pleasure to photograph, everyone was so happy there were so many smily faces and beautiful details for me to capture. I loved it!

Woodland Wonderland Styled Shoot

Back in May I was asked to photograph an AMAZING styled shoot at Oakwood Weddings, a brand new wedding venue nestled within ancient woodland near Ashford. 

The theme was enchanted woodland wonderland with a touch of bohemian glamour designed by Claire from Blue Daisies Florist who supplied all the beautiful flowers, and Becky from Your Beautiful Day. 

As a photographer it's always an amazing experience to have the opportunity to work with other supplies on a collaborative styled shoot, so when I was approached by Claire about the idea she had for the shoot I jumped at the chance to be involved!

Oakwood Weddings was the perfect setting, nestled in miles of woodland with a carpet full of beautiful bluebells. I was super excited to be shooting at a venue where no weddings have even taken place yet!

Claire and Becky had already been at the venue setting up when I arrived and the care and detail they had put into the decor was unbelievable. From cute hessian picnic blankets, wicker baskets and wooden crates to candelabras and the most amazing chandelier made by Claire that they had suspended from one of the trees. 

The food all looked sublime, it was hard not to tuck into it while I waited for the models to have their hair and make up done!

Faith, the 'bride' wore a stunning boho-esque gown with a gorgeous floral crown made by Claire and Oliver, the 'groom' totally rocked the tweed waistcoat and bow tie. We did some shots with the picnic set up and then moved to another part of the woods where the girls had created a whole new scene for us to shoot in with the most incredible ribbon tipi and a cake fit for a woodland pixie queen.

It was such a magical place to shoot in and I'm so excited for when this fabulous venue finally opens. The whole team worked so hard to create the perfect whimsical atmosphere and I think the images speak for themselves. It was a brilliant day and I think I speak for all of those involved when I say how proud I am of what we created :-)
