Beautiful Engagement Photo Session at SunRise, Chiswick, West London

I met Melissa for the first time at The West London Wedding Show this October. Melissa is one of those people you meet and instantly connect.  After a small chat you already think you’ve known her for ages.  She is absolutely beautiful and her amazing and warm personality shines through! 

We agreed with Melissa and her fiancĂ© Sheldon to meet for the engagement photo session in a few weeks’ time, and for the location Mel chose Chiswick House & Gardens. Have you been there?! It’s such a beautiful park located at the very heart of West London. I could not believe I hadn’t been there before! 

As it was the school half-term I knew it will be packed with people later on, so I suggested (and I still cannot believe I did, as I love mornings after 10 am), to meet Melissa and Sheldon at 8 am for a sunrise engagement session! 

What a beautiful morning it turned out -  the light was perfect, the sun casted beautifully against a pastel coloured sky, stunning garden with colourful autumn leaves in a background and only a few joggers and doggers in the park!

We spent the golden morning hours in the garden and the couple was fabulous and fun to capture in stunning pictures  - have a look yourself!

 Melissa and Sheldon, you're absolutely adorable couple! Really.

Chess River Valley, Hertfordshire Engagement: Rebecca & Aaron

I was honoured to join Rebecca and Aron in Chess Valley, Chorleywood, Hertfordshire for their engagement photos and I couldn't have been happier working with such an amazing couple! And spending the day in most picturesque British country side for their engagement session was the perfect start to what’s coming very soon - their perfect wedding day! Rebecca and Aron are marrying in July and I couldn't be more excited to work with them again soon.
One of my favourite things about Rebecca and Aaron is their readiness and commitment to create and capture those memories of lifetime in photographs to cherish for a lifetime.

I felt in love with this gorgeous couple and the Chess Valley’s amazing views. 

I returned there already twice to enjoy the beauty of British country side to share with my family… This is the type of place that makes a photographers fall in love. Each and every step provides the photo opportunity and the perfect weather was just a cherry on the top.

A Very Personal Signature Book For Wedding Guests To Sign And Enjoy

There is an album for their wedding day and an album for their parents to enjoy... We made two versions of the book - a signature book with 48 pages (with 20 blank pages for guests to sign) and a 26 page book without the empty pages for their parents... 

Let see if you can spot a deer! :)

Real Wedding Planning...

Real Wedding Planning… a brief but vital guide to getting started

There are 3 essentials you need to decide in order to begin planning and organising your perfect wedding day:

The budget

The wedding date

The guest list

Once these are sorted, the wedding planning can commence. These 3 essential details all play off each other to start your plans: Without the budget you can’t chose your venue, dress, accessories and so forth; Without the date you can’t plan the venue; Without the guest list you don’t know how big your venue needs to be, how many people you have to cater for or how far you have to stretch your budget!  So get these three organised and your on your way to becoming Mr & Mrs!

The wedding budget can be managed in a number of ways, with savings, cash gifts from generous parents and relatives and salary/ wages in the lead up to your wedding day.  Don’t forget you rarely have to pay for everything all at once or as soon as you decide to get married, you do have time to drip feed the expense of your wedding, but it’s essential to plan…

Here’s a helpful budget-planning checklist to get your exciting wedding plans underway:

Registrar/ church fees
Wedding rings
Bride’s dress
Bride’s accessories
i)     veil
ii)    jewellery
iii)   shoes
iv)   lingerie
Hair & Make-up
Groom’s outfit
Groom’s shoes
Best man/ ushers outfits
Bridesmaid dresses
Wedding photographer
Wedding cars
Reception venue hire
Table decorations
Table favours
Chair covers
Drinks/ bar
Band and DJ
Thank you gifts

Handy tips:

1) When I was planning my wedding I found that I became dependant on lists, they were indispensable.  It was really helpful having lists from favourite venues and prices, the best wedding dress shops in the area, weekly checklists of things to be sourced and paid for and in season flowers.  As you work on each section of your wedding plan, having the lists to refer back to is invaluable and saves time revisiting (and trying remember) previous ideas.

2) Unless you have a clear idea of theme, or favourite flowers or era it seems it’s a case of going through all available magazines, blogs, wedding fairs and websites for ideas.  This can be not only confusing but also overwhelming! 

I created a digital mood board by copying my favourite photographs, themes and colours from all of the websites I was traipsing through. It didn’t take long for a colour theme and style to emerge through the images of weddings, dresses, table decorations and flowers.

3) There are many resources available for advice and up to date themes.

TFGP Finally Launched...


We’ve finally launched The Fairy Godmother Project Wedding Photography with a wedding at Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire, followed by a reception at The Hare & Hounds Hotel, just down the road from Westonbirt Arboretum…

What a beautiful and spectacular day it was too…

The bride arrived in a 1960’s Dodge Charger hired from Star Car Hire, and proceeded to get blown into the ceremony by the biting wind...  

With a stunning bouquet created by Kopend Creations, and a dress made by Alice from Veils of Berkeley the smile from the brides face could been see for miles!

The rain kindly held off for the ceremony and until the newly married bride and groom and the guests were safely ensconced in The Hare & Hounds, with a glass of champagne and a canape in hand!
