So, here is the second part of Gayle and James’ Wedding Photos.
Being an outdoor couple, the chill didn’t affect them at all for this set of shots, and it’s great to know that you don’t have to worry (too much) and feel under pressure to get it over with as quickly as possible!
This was another cake that smelt so good I was tempted to pick a bit off the back whist nobody was looking – but I didn’t ! And, here’s the on-theme home-made table plan, too – such a good idea.
The final post comes tomorrow, with my favourites from one of the best wedding booths we’ve had to date !

Gayle and James were married on New Year’s Eve 2011 at the New Mill, Eversley. They actually live in Switzerland, so organising a UK wedding from afar was always going to be a little bit of a challenge! Luckily for Gayle, she had a fantastically organised sister who did a lot of the hard graft, including finding me (great job!)
Gayle and James had deliberately chosen New Year’s Eve because they wanted not only to celebrate with their friends and family, but because they wanted to give them a great New Year’s Eve party too – and I am pretty sure they did just that.
They are both fitness fanatics, and love hiking, skiing and cycling and the sporty theme ran throughout their day – including a home made table plan, constructed of a bike wheel, planted in a swiss tree log, imported with them as they drove back from Switzerland.
Here, in Part 1, are my favourites from the morning of the wedding day ..
Some super moments from the ceremony … apparently it was my fault that James shed a tear as Gayle came up the aisle!
Being still so close to Christmas, the decorations were still out, giving a warm and festive feel.
Tomorrow will bring Part 2, and then some of the Photobooth images on Wednesday !

Part 2 of Caroline and Andrew’s Wedding at Gate Street Barn starts with some of the Christmassy details and those scrummy canapés..
.. and we finish with the succulent dinner that was served. Makes my mouth water just looking at it all again!
Congratulations to you both and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

The lovely Caroline and Andrew were married on a bitterly cold Saturday afternoon last December and celebrated with their friends and family at Gate Street Barn, in Bramley. The wedding itself took place close by, at St. John the Baptist Church in Wonersh, thought to be built as early as 1050, if not before!
Being a wedding this late in December, there was a fantastic Christmas and wintery reds theme running through the day, as you will see. The other, hugely important, theme was one of food – given that Andrew is a chef … this was a day of outstanding food, and some of the best canapés I have ever tasted. Just as well, because the caterers were trained by Andrew – no pressure then!
A huge thank you to everyone for being so hardcore and braving the icy wind for photographs outside, and especially to Caroline, who was the least covered up!
Here is Part 1 of my favourites from their day :
It’s such a great pleasure to be able to see, and capture, these emotional moments …
.. as well as these super-happy ones too!
Part II to follow tomorrow …
Well, Happy New Year to you all ! I hope that you had a great Christmas and New Year break. We were very grateful for some time off after a manic final few weeks before the festivities started!
One of the things we were busy with was for the queen of my biggest vice Sarah Jane Chocolates. On a chilly but sunny Monday afternoon in mid-December, I visited Sarah and her lovely family for a pre-Christmas family photoshoot … oh, and some chocolates too!
As the sun was out, we took the opportunity and headed out into the garden, armed with camera, reflector and warm jackets. They were all very good about dropping the jackets for a few minutes at a time, whilst we captured some great family moments. Of course, coffee and chocolate was a must after all that, and I would be lying if I didn’t own up to the fact that I ate rather more than I should – but, oh goodness, how utterly divine! I would highly recommend sampling some for yourself, or even attending one of her Chocolate Making Workshops. I guarantee, you won’t be disappointed!
So, enough of that, let’s look at some of my favourite images from the shoot :
