Dagmara and Yoann's Engagement

I always love taking photos in Holland Park and Dagmara and Yoann‘s romantic photo-shoot to mark their engagement proved no exception. The cosmopolitan couple – he’s French, she’s Polish are getting married in France next year having recently got engaged in London.

Dagmara and I met at the fabulous school Montessori at Brook Green  where she’s a teacher. I have been privileged enough to photograph the children’s annual portraits at the school for four years running now with great thanks to their outstanding headmistress, Jane Alway.  I also did Jane’s own family portraits last year in Holland Park, which was a lovely leaving gift from one of her parents.

Bex and Sean

Bex and Sean were married late in August at the cosy Combe House Hotel on the beautiful Quantock Hills in Somerset.

We were so lucky as after a sodden Friday, the sun shone for most of Saturday, only disappearing briefly when Sean and Bex and I went for our 10 minute walkabout.  This was particularly welcome as Sean and Bex could then have a stunning outdoors ceremony in front of the hotel and champagne on the lawn afterwards.

Without doubt, the Combe House Hotel’s chef provided the best wedding breakfast I have ever had!  Thanks for looking after us so well!  And Sean and Bex never stopped smiling the whole day! Just perfect! Thank you for asking me to be your wedding photographer and thanks too to my able assistant Paul.

Lovely Lianne Ardren (HairByLianne) did Bex and her bridesmaids’ hair and the dress was by Maggie Sottero from Rookery Manor.

Eric and Omah

The latest additions to my family couldn’t be more different to each other.  We have Omah, the stunning, 15.3 arab horse and Eric, a tiny, shaggy fell pony who is just 1 year old.  Horses are herd animals and don’t like being on their own so Eric is a companion pony for Omah.

Eric’s Mum was rescued by The Quantock Trekking Centre in West Bagborough but no one knew she was pregnant. Eric is the result and he’s a really brave little pony. He went in his first lorry recently (Quantock Transport) and walked straight up the ramp -  and since he and Omah have been together there hasn’t been any politics at all! We love him already!

Maynard School Discovery Morning

The Maynard School in Exeter very kindly asked me to photograph their Pre-Prep Discovery Morning for girls aged from 3 – 11. They all enjoyed a morning of fun activities including tennis, yoga, Bollywood dancing and science. Everyone had a fantastic time and the school hall was awash with smiling faces at departure time. The Maynard School is expanding in September to include girls from the age of 4 (reception).

Lucy and Charlie - Wedding

I was particularly thrilled to be asked to photograph Lucy and Charlie’s wedding this Summer since it was my 2nd wedding for Lucy’s family – Her lovely sister Sophie got married a few years ago and I was lucky enough to be her wedding photographer then so it was fantastic to see all the family again.

Lucy and Charlie were married in Luppitt Church in Devon and had their reception at the stunning Deer Park Country House Hotel. It was the most fabulous day with much laughter and joy, fabulous speeches and two bands. Lucy’s stunning dress was from Kate Walker in Honiton.  Fay Venner did makeup and Ellie Greensmith of Elk Exeter did a fab job on Lucys hair.

Lucy and Charlie spent their first night in Deer Park’s funky and luxury Tree House.

Many thanks to Mark Cox who who was my second photographer.

Coral

Kim & Dan brought their lovely 10-month old baby Coral for a photo-shoot at my home - We used the farmer's shed on our lane which has amazing light! She was so well-behaved and didn't complain once! Thanks.

What a cutie and such incredible hair!
