Castle Ashby Wedding Photography

I'm looking forward to my final visit of the year to Castle Ashby this coming Saturday for the wedding of Lisa and Nick. Castle Ashby has to be one of my favourite venues in the UK for weddings. Set in the heart of a 10,000 acre estate, Castle Ashby House offers exceptional marquee weddings set in the beautiful grounds of the house or in the exquisite walled gardens. If you're currently looking for a venue for your forthcoming wedding I would recommend you speak with Gwyneth and the team at Castle Ashby, you won't be disappointed.


At Suzie and Kits recent wedding at Dodmoor House, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Hayley who runs Vintage Scoops, a wonderfully retro Ice Cream van called Betty  - from which she serves traditional ice creams and treats at weddings and events across the UK. Betty blended in brilliantly with the vintage feel of Suzie and Kit's big day and the ice creams went down a treat with all their guests. You can find out more about Hayley and Vintage Scoops at her website or on her facebook page.



Once the home of Sir Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, the stunning Notley Abbeyprovided a fitting location for Mary and Tim's intimate wedding in early August. It was a beautiful day which gave family and friends the chance to relax in the tranquil gardens as Mary and Tim took a drive in Notley's 1948 Rolls-Bentley. Here is a selection of some of my favourite images from the day.




I consider it a privilege to photograph a couples wedding and it is always hugely motivating to receive compliments from clients. I had a lovely email from Nina and Paul yesterday, the contents of which I would like to share with you. Nina is the Wedding & Event Planner at Hinwick House, so to get feedback like this from her is especially pleasing. Thanks guys, you were great to work with ....


Congratulations to Mary and Tim who were married yesterday at the stunning Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire. More images to following shortly.
