Highgate House - Pre Wedding Photography with Zoe & Glen

It was great to meet up with Zoe and Glen recently to chat about their forthcoming wedding at Highgate House, Northants. I include a pre-wedding shoot with most of my wedding packages these days, it's a great opportunity to meet up with my clients before the wedding day and get them used to being photographed. Zoe and Glen were complete naturals, I'm very much looking forward to working with them in a short while. Here are a few of my favourite shots.

At long last - a wedding that passed by without any hint of the wet stuff (rain not alcohol !). Alex and Aaron had a wonderful day to celebrate their wedding ceremony at St Mary's, Oakley and then reception at Woodlands Manor in Clapham. Another very local wedding for me which makes a pleasant change. Guests came from far afield to celebrate with them and they all had a wonderful time, here are a few of my favourites from the day.

I rarely get the chance to work locally these days and 9 time out of 10 find myself somewhere or other on the M1 or M25 on my way to a wedding, so it was great to be part of Heather and Colin's day with a church service at St Andrew's Biggleswade and wedding reception at the Barns Hotel in Bedford. Miraculously the weather stayed dry for us and a great day was had by all, here's a selection of images from the day.



It was great to meet up with Pauline and Ping at Oakwood House, Maidstone a couple of weeks ago for a chat about their forthcoming wedding and a few shots around the house and grounds. I met Pauline a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid at her friend Kelly's wedding at Castle Ashby. Pauline and Ping's wedding will be very much a fusion of the contemporary and traditional and I'm very much looking forward to capturing their big day in September.

It was lovely to meet up with Clare and John ahead of their wedding later in August at Launton Church. Here are a few images from the shoot.
