A venue that means you can get married surrounded by Old Masters. Works by Gainsborough, Canaletto, Rubens and Rembrandt, amongst others, hang on the walls of the Soane gallery where […]

A Mayor’s Parlour wedding at Islington town hall for Melanie and Joe last Saturday. A small London wedding of just eight people, including the bride and groom. A wedding that included a good samaritan! But before that, it was Melanie and her bridesmaid (cousin) Lucy, getting ready in the flat. They were then joined by […]

    Thank you so much for all the lovely photographs of our big day. You have really captured our wedding day story and everyone who has seen your blog has been so complimentary about your work.

    As we were a smaller wedding party, we did have a worry that having a photographer with us would get in the way and be a bit disruptive, but you were wonderful at putting everyone at ease and not making us do the normal “posed” wedding shots.

    We are just delighted with the photographs, which are so natural of us with our families! Thank you once again. Melanie L.ReplyCancel

    Fantastic, we love the photos! I think you have really captured the fun of the day! Perfect.

    I think Newick Park closing down was meant to be as I got my wedding at my dream venue of Gravetye Manor which I had not been able to justify before!! Fate sealed the deal!

    Thanks again, and can’t wait to see the rest.

The Lost Village of Dode……Gemma and Thomas had picked a very unique and remote venue for their country wedding last weekend. “In an almost forgotten valley between Luddesdown and Holly Hill, astride the North Downs, the small Norman Church of Dode stands sentinel over the site of it’s former Village.” Situated at the end of […]
