Happy groom at Minterne House wedding

Poor Luke, he’d had a morning of it. First one of his ushers lost a cufflink out of the bedroom window (don’t ask) and then, as he was heading off, he found out that a cat had pee’d on his wedding speech. Everyone’s a critic. Emergency use of the hair-dryer and a team search for the lost cufflink and then all was back on track.

Now, these sort of little hiccups might have unsettled a lesser man but Luke was completely unphased by it all. That was until Christina walked down the aisle and then it got the better of him. He was one very happy groom.


Gosfield Hall spring wedding of Meera & Tim

Gorgeous, sunny day for the Gosfield Hall spring wedding of Meera and Tim. We started the day with preparations at Gosfield Hall before heading over to the round church at Little Mapplestead for the ceremony. This wedding was slightly unusual in that it was Meera and Tim’s second wedding having had the Indian version the week before. This was very much the English version with the marriage at a quaint English church and reception at a historic country house. I’m not sure what the wedding was like the week before but I think a few people were still recovering from it – if the dance floor by the end of this wedding was anything to go by, I bet it was one incredible party! Although this may have been a more formal occasion, it certainly didn’t stop Meera from beaming from ear to ear all day with that huge and engaging smile […]

Notley Abbey spring wedding | Just One

Bijou wedding venues did themselves proud this Easter weekend – the second wedding of the weekend for me was Sarah and James’s at the always beautiful Notley Abbey. Perfect spring time day, lovely and sunny with the blossoms still in bloom. The only thing more elegant than the venue was Sarah herself (smooth huh!) she looked absolutely stunning. James just looked a little stunned. Fun was most definitely the order of the day and there was plenty of that. Here’s one of my favourite images, with many more to follow soon.

Congrats to the new Mr & Mrs!

Georgina and James’s Suffolk wedding

Georgie and James’s wedding was full of promise – and it really didn’t disappoint! What an incredible day. What an incredible couple. Georgie was the picture of quiet, stoic calm through out but then again being a nursery school teacher, she’s probably used to much worse chaos on a daily basis. James was determined not to let the nerves show and helped it together well – but to be fair, I’m not sure what he was more nervous about, the wedding or the first dance! Fate was smiling on them both with the weather – cold and breezy for the start of the day but as they turned down the aisle after their ceremony, the sun decided to come out giving us a glorious afternoon to enjoy the reception back at Georgie’s parents farm. Usually the groom gets a good roasting in the speeches but this time, the bride got a pretty […]

Loseley Park spring wedding | Just One

By jingo! The weather has been good to me this year – and long may it last! Picture perfect day for Harriet and Kevin’s Loseley Park spring wedding and a picture perfect couple to go with it. Kevin and his family had travelled from the West Coast of the US for the wedding and, although I’m sure they are used to bigger and brighter days in Californai, it was a quintessentially English day. Grand country house, impressive estate gardens all steeped in centuries of history. Oh …and some pretty decent sparkling wine from Denbies vineyard where Harriet’s mother works. Drinking and talking about the weather, two of the British favourite conversational pastimes!

One thing the Brits aren’t known for are public displays of emotion which was definitely a challenge at this wedding. Not a dry eye in the house …I blamed my teary eyes on an early bout of hay fever, […]

Botleys Mansion spring wedding | Just One

The first wedding of the Easter weekend for me was Laura and Nick’s fantastic Botleys Mansion spring wedding. I had a simple brief …”get as much greenery as you can”. Thankfully the trees had enough early spring warmth to bring out the leaves (thanks mother nature, you helped me with that one …it would have been tricky without your help!) And to get a sunset shot. Things looked promising all day long, lovely blue sunny sky, lots of potential for a stunning sunset. Up until it was time for the sunset itself that is. So a bit of hasty rearranging with a couple of camera flashes and I think I got close to a decent sunset shot. I hope like it.

Congrats to the new Mr & Ms, many more favourite shots from the day to follow soon.
