Second Time Lucky – David & Ingrid’s Redo Portraits
September 15, 2010
“David, an Aussie living in London, met Norwegian Ingrid on a trip to Norway through friends” photographer Ed began. “They hit it off straight away and had a long distance relationship for a while until Ingrid decided to move over to London. They both share a passion for music. Dave is a guitarist and music director and Ingrid is still studying, but sings. One thing led to another and they got married in July 2008 in Ingrid’s home town Stavanger, in Norway. It was a fantastic wedding with people from London, Norway and Australia. However, one thing went badly wrong… their photographer lost their entire set of photos (their photographer was not me by the way!) due to a hard disk issue. Ingrid was naturally devastated!”
“This summer Ingrid finally got round to bringing her dress over from Norway to London and asked me if I could redo some wedding photos for them… In Norway it is tradition to send guests a thank you card with a photo of the day – Ingrid has been waiting to get some photos done before she can do this!”
This shoot took place at various locations around Surrey, UK (I didn’t even think you could get light like this in the UK!)
Huge thanks to David & Ingrid and to their ‘save the day’ photographer Ed for sharing these gorgeous shots with us today

A Farm Wedding with Fancy Dress, Fun & Frolics: Lauren & Matt
August 31, 2012
Lauren & Matt's started their wedding planning knowing exactly what they wanted: something relaxed, stress-free and fun. They were lucky enough to have a friend whose parents own a farm, so everything else really stemmed from that. Lauren told me all about it. "As soon as we got engaged we knew how we wanted our wedding to be, we just didn't know how to do it! The first and most important thing was to find a photographer. Being a enthusiastic photographer myself, I spent weeks searching for one that she liked, we finally came across Sassy of Assassynation and sent an excited email straight away. She immediately told us to phone her for a chat as we hadn't set a date yet, but when she told us she only had 2 Saturdays free in the 3 months that we were looking at we booked her there and then! Everything else was then planned around her."
Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside
April 17, 2010
Whenever the sun shines in London about 80% of the population speculate going to the beach and Brighton is usually the first port of call. It's quirky, it's quaint, it's nostalgic, it's hilariously British and it has a killer night life! So when it came for Charlie & Ross to have their 'Cherish the Dress' wedding shoot, where better to descend then this wonderful beach location!? The couple actually got married in December so they thought the juxtapositionof having some lovely, warming, outdoor shots would be absolutely perfecto.
Bohemian Forest Wedding Inspired by the South American Sunset (with the Bride in a Hand-Painted Dress!)
March 7, 2018
I don't usually like to make assumptions about which weddings might be the most popular ones that we publish, but I'm pretty confident to state that I think you are all going to lose your collective shit when you see Lisa and Tom's wedding. Why? Well would you get a load of her DRESS!!! Before we move onto discussing anything else about this one, we need to talk about that immediately!
Woodland Weekend Wedding in Yorkshire: Lorna & Liam
Shutter Go.. Click
September 26, 2014
Lorna and Liam were hitched at Camp Katur in Bedale, North Yorkshire. They hired the place for a whole weekend in August so they could have a nice, long celebration. "We both love nature and fell in love with the venue straight away. This had a massive influence over the whole wedding", began the bride. "We wanted it to be informal, fun and a great reflection of our relationship and life."
A Woodland Ceremony & A Pirate Themed Party: Jenny & Gary
July 18, 2012
I love love love Shell de Mar's wedding photography. Every single image is bright and fun and vibrant. They just make me feel so happy. I don't know what it is... It's probably a little to do with the amazing way she captures colour but more likely than not it's a lot to do with the firecracker behind the lens. Shell is a cute as hell force to be reckoned with. She's also one of my best friends and so it's always an honour to share her work on my blog.
Today's installment of sunshine comes in the form of Jenny & Gary's woodland ceremony, hillside portraits and pirate themed reception. "Our ceremony was held at Wittenham Clumps (i.e. up a hill!), just next to the reception venue", Jenny told me. "When we came to see the barn as a potential reception venue we fell in love with the view, the fresh air, abundance of wild flowers and birdsong (sounds cheesy but it truly was idyllic) and just had to have the wedding there. Amazingly the sun shone on the day, although it had been raining for weeks before and after. We were bloody lucky! The only down side was there was no license so we had to have a small civil ceremony the week before (no great burden really – having an intimate day was also wonderful)."
Folklore & Fantasy Pagan Woodland Wedding
December 10, 2016
Jay and Wisia had a Pagan ceremony in the woods. They wanted their wedding theme to be folklore and fantasy inspired without being too cheesy.
"There’s a fine line between themed and fancy dress", laughed the bride. "Our special day was a cross between Viking and Elvish visual themes with elements of Pagan."
My Sister’s Wedding! A Midsummer’s Daydream
October 25, 2016
Today's wedding is pretty darn special because it's my sisters!!! It's also featured inside the current issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine, but as the new issue goes on pre-sale tomorrow (eek!) I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share it online as well. I really wanted show you a lot more of the photos that we weren't able to fit into the magazine spread.
A ‘Funfest’ Festival Wedding with 16 Bridesmaids!
June 6, 2017
Lizzy and Ed met because of Glastonbury so of course they had to have a festival themed wedding. They named it FUNFEST! "Not only do we love music festivals but without them we’d have never met", explained the bride. "We were introduced by a mutual friend that we both met completely separately at Glastonbury. He thought we were made for each other so he played cupid and introduced us, and turns out he was right."
