Holly & Liam | Rumbolds Farm Couple Shoot

Holly and Liam get married in a few weeks and we are so excited!

A few months ago we met up at their wedding venue Rumbolds Farm in Plaistow, West Sussex and took some lovely photographs of the two of them 🤩

Rumbolds Farm is such an incredible wedding venue. The barn is surrounded by beautiful gardens and miles of countryside beyond. Holly and Liam are having their ceremony outside in front of the lake which I am so excited about!

Holly and Liam are super lovely and they are planning such a relaxed and fun wedding. This is the first time I’ve visited a venue with a couple to take engagement photographs, usually we opt for a different location but with such a stunning backdrop they definitely made the right decision.

These two are super cute together (just look below 😍) and I can’t wait for their wedding 💛

Enjoy the photos!

Lara & David | Jane Austen House Museum Couple Shoot

Lara and David had their first date at the Jane Austen House Museum in Chawton and they didn’t consider anywhere else when we looked at locations for their couple shoot before getting married ♥️

The museum is currently looking at offering photography packages for couples to come along and have their engagement or wedding photographs taken so we were really lucky to be able to go there for the session. The garden that surrounds the house is really beautiful and full to the brim with gorgeous flowers and plants - Lara and David were definitely in their element.

These two have the amazing ability to look effortlessly cool in photographs one second and then super cute and loved up the next, I was so impressed! So often my couples tell me beforehand that they’re a bit nervous about having their photo taken and that they’re not sure what to expect. Lara and David were no exception but they handled it like pros!

I really enjoyed spending an hour or so with these two, talking about cats and vegan food (v important topics!) and having such a laugh. I really enjoy meeting up with my couples to talk about their wedding and exploring places that mean something to their relationship.

The couple get married in a few months at an AMAZING venue - Bursledon Brickworks and they’re having a 100% vegan wedding, I am SO excited!

I’m really enjoying photographing couple shoots at the moment! Get in touch if there is a place you’d like to have one ✨ or find out more about what we offer here :)

Beth & Simon | Richmond Park Couple Shoot

Ahhh Richmond Park is SO beautiful!

From the very first moment that Beth and Simon enquired with me, I knew we were a perfect match. These guys are awesome and so so lovely. Simon also wins the award for most random career that any of my couples have had so far - he makes wax figures for Madame Tussauds! 😎 Beth is a nurse too which just makes me adore her all the more :)

Beth and Simon were pretty nervous about having a photographer focus on them for their wedding day so I was really looking forward to their couple shoot so that they could see that it’s actually super fun and nothing to be worried about! We spent an hour or so wandering around the park avoiding the crowds (it was so busy!) and chatting about their wedding (they got married in the best venue ever!). We spent the entire time looking for deer too but they were hiding from us :( we saw some from a distance but none up close (but we did see some battle ready swans and some sweet doggos 🐶).

After this shoot my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much. Beth and Simon might be the nicest people I’ve ever met and they’re so funny too! They are both super relaxed and were so much fun to hang out with. We talked about films, Scotland and travel (all my favourite things) and about their honeymoon to Bali 🏝

We were lucky enough to have lovely light - it was a warm day but the sun wasn’t too bright thankfully. I always suggest to my couples that we meet for couple shoots just before sunset as the light is best at this time 💛 plus the crowds start to dwindle and that’s important if the location is this popular!

I absolutely adore photographing couples in love in beautiful locations like Richmond Park so please do get in touch if you fancy a couple shoot here or in another London park ❤

Sarah & Daniel | A sunrise engagement shoot on West Wittering beach

Sarah and Daniel are my favourite kind of people. They woke up at 3.30am for a sunrise engagement shoot earlier this summer and didn't bat an eyelid or complain once. They get married next year and I’m so excited :) they got engaged under the stars in Yosemite, California and anyone who knows me will know how much I love it there!

I absolutely love sunrise. Russell and I regularly wake up before sunrise during the summer to go and sit on the beach. There is something so peaceful about the world before everyone wakes up. This couple shoot was the perfect example of that, we barely saw a soul for at least an hour.

West Wittering beach is absolutely beautiful but unfortunately it gets so busy during the summer. I loved seeing it this empty :) I would love to shoot another engagement shoot here in the winter, anyone up for it? ;)

Kate & Ben | An alternative engagement shoot in the Lake District

I love going away for mini adventures and several weeks ago Russell and I did just that and drove (yes, drove!) to the Lake District for the weekend. Neither of us had been before and we LOVED it! We headed to Blea Tarn for an incredible styled elopement shoot (more of that to come soon!) and we also had the chance to photograph this awesome alternative engagement styled shoot while we were there. 

Kate and Ben are good friends of The Burtons, the guys who organised the shoot along with Jade Maguire Photography. These guys are so cute and it was so lovely to spend some time with them walking around the beautiful woodlands near Blea Tarn. Plus, how gorgeous is Kate!? I bloody love her hair and style ♡ these guys both look awesome and what a location!

Make-up for this shoot was done by Makeup By Leigh and Kate's hair was styled by Wedding Hair in the Lakes - they did a fab job! 

This choice of location and the couple's style really shows how unique engagement photos can be. I love it when couples wear their favourite band tees and take me to their favourite spots ♡ did you know that I offer a complimentary engagement shoot to each of my couples? I love the opportunity to get some incredible shots in a truly wonderful setting that means something to the couple ♡

I would LOVE to photograph a wedding in the Lake District. The following venues are pretty close to Blea Tarn so if you're thinking about getting married or considering eloping in the Lake District then you should check them out :) 

Cote How - this venue looks incredible! Surrounded on all sides by spectacular scenery and they even have their own lake! 

Another Place - ahhh this place looks amazing ♡ this venue is all about 18 acres of beautiful Lake District countryside and those Ullswater views!

Aquila - an intimate and quirky exclusive-use lakeside venue!  

Let me know if you're planning an awesome Lake District wedding and need a photographer ;)

Annie & Alex | An autumnal engagement shoot in Ashdown Forest, East Sussex

The wonderful Annie and Alex are big fans of anything retro, so when they suggested getting all dressed up in clothes from their favourite era and going for a walk in the beautiful Sussex countryside for their engagement shoot, I said yes immediately! 

We chose Ashdown Forest on a whim and I'm so glad we did. The colours were incredible, well worth the almost freezing temperature! These guys are the best and I feel so honoured that they chose me as their wedding photographer, they get married next year and I can't wait ♡

We spent a wonderful couple of hours walking around the beautiful forest talking about their wedding, Netflix series' (plus other binge-worthy shows!) and awesome films. Annie and Alex are as geeky as me and I love it!

We were joined by my lovely (and equally geeky) husband Russell who created a film for the two of them as a little gift ♡ you can watch the video below:

Now for the photos!

Pssst....I offer a complimentary engagement shoot to each of my couples. They are such a good opportunity for us to get to know each other before your wedding day.  If you'd like to find out more then get in touch
