The Reid Rooms

I had to check the calendar a couple of times when Chanelle and Shaun's wedding kicked off my 2019 wedding season, as although we were in February, it felt much more like summer! The sun was shining all day over at The Reid Rooms, where Chanelle and Shaun were having their wedding ceremony and reception, and it was so mild,…

One of the trickiest elements of planning a wedding is understanding how much things cost, and how much you're going to need, and flowers are near the top of that particular conundrum. I spoke with Kelly L’Esperance, founder of Miss Fleur Floral Design, who specialises in fresh and faux flowers for weddings, and they're bloody marvellous. Kelly has some great…

We all know that one of the biggest elements of wedding planning is for the bride to find the dress of her dreams, but from I've found from experience, that when the same attention is paid to the groom and the other gents in the wedding party, it really makes a big difference. Whether it's tails, a tux or a…

MUA Essex

For brides, finding someone to do your wedding makeup can often be a confusing and complex experience. The majority of us women are comfortable applying our own makeup, but when it comes to asking a potential stranger to do it on our behalf, it can turn into panic stations! What if I can't articulate what I want? What if I…

Call me crazy, but I do believe I am just as excited to watch one of my couples' wedding films as they are! There's something very exciting about re-visiting the joyfulness of a wedding day, and these days wedding films are modern and enjoyable - and nothing like your parents' 2 hour video from 1980! Working alongside videographers on a…

Groom prep getting ready wedding

Groom prep, short for preparation, or quite simply 'getting ready' on your wedding day, is something included in your wedding photos, should circumstances allow. Groom prep is the same as Bridal prep, where we photograph the Groom and his gents getting ready before they leave for the wedding ceremony on your day. Generally speaking, we try and fade into the…

  Congratulations! They asked, and you said Yes! You're now officially engaged, so what happens next?     If you've never planned a wedding before, it'd be understandable if you were feeling very giddy, and perhaps slightly overwhelmed with everything that happens next! Give yourself 10 points every time someone grabs your hand to see the ring, asks you for…

Here we are again! That time of year when I like to look back over the year at all the little things that didn't quite make the final cut, whether it's me gate-crashing a photo accidentally or on purpose. Over the course of a wedding between two of us we might take around 7000 images you can't help but find…

Ok ok, my title to this blog sounds somewhat philosophical and, also a wee bit pretentious if we're being honest about it, but there's a good reason for it. I initially wanted to just call this blog post 'Diversity', but I knew you wouldn't read it if I did. Or you'd think it was about that dance troupe from whichever…

Essex forest engagement shoot

I'm so happy when a couple asks me if they can bring their dog along to their pre-wedding shoot! I'd already met Smeagol the golden retriever puppy when I first chatted with Kristina and Adam about their wedding, and Smeagol greeted me with playful puppy rough and tumble (as they do - my dog also used to do this as…
