I was recently asked to attend a charity event, which took place on Saturday night in Horsley, Surrey. We were supporting Tommy’s, a charity giving babies the best chance of being born healthy. The event was fantastically organised by the ever-dedicated Katie and Ruth. Katie also runs Magnificent Mamma, “an organisation that provides seminars, workshops, courses and private sessions to enrich and encourage fulfillment in the job of parenting.”
So, the night was an amazing success with everybody in fantastic spirits. The food was delicious and the dancing was, well, wild and crazy! We setup our new PhotoBooth up on stage, and every was invited in to have their picture taken, with or without funny hats. Many people opted to go with the hats and a few tasters from the night follow.

In just a few week’s time, Lucy and Andy will be celebrating their wedding at the very stylish Seldson Park Hotel. So, as is usual, we had a pre-wedding shoot a few weeks back, to help with the nerves .. and I have to say, we had one nervous bunny indeed! However, with a little bit of fun and laughter (ok, a lot of laughter) we managed to harness the fear of photography and get some cracking shots.
Here are my faves from the session, all taken in and around Guildford High Street, and down by the river:
Undercover .. looking like we’re in Milan, daahling …
Lucy, you did amazing – I hope you like them, and are feeling less worried about the wedding day ? See you soon xx
On a beautifully hot and sunny day, just a few weeks ago, Karen and Michael were married at the gorgeous Buxted Park Hotel, in Ashdown Forest. It was a closed celebration, as we had exclusive use of the entire hotel, which was used for both the ceremony and the reception – perfect for Isabelle and I, as it meant we could park up the car in the morning and not worry about the logistical issues of multiple locations.
We were also treated to overnight accommodation, so were able to let our hair down (no jokes please) and try something a little different at the end of the evening … more on that shortly.
If you were a guest at the wedding, or just an interested friend, please click HERE to register your email address and we will let you know when the full set of images are available online for viewing.
So, whilst the deer and rabbits roamed free in the gardens in the morning, we set about to photograph the day as it unfolded.
Here are my favourites :
So, for the first time that evening, we trialled a new service – namely, The PhotoBooth. In a separate room, just off from all the dancing, we set up some studio lighting and a paper back drop and then invited guests to come and “play” for the camera. We had a queue of willing participants and the whole thing went down an absolute storm. Here is a small selection of the best shots:
Thank you guys, for an amazing day, a friendly welcome and a cracking overnight stay – see you soon!
Rachel and Sean will be getting married next week, up in Gloucestershire. A few weeks back, however, we met up down in Dorset for their pre-wedding shoot, at the beautiful Durdle Door – a natural limestone arch on the jurassic coast.
This is a very poignant and special place for them both, as it was here that Sean proposed to Rachel – and so what better place for a shoot such as this?
You will notice an experimental and subtle 70′s Summer Holiday colour tone to the images, which I rather like, as it gives a bit of an old-style revival … anyhow, here we go with my favourite images from the session:
