Natasha and Emma • Northbrook Park • Farnham • Blossoms and Ribbons • Documentary Wedding Photography

Having been to Northbrook Park before, I knew it was a stunning venue and was so excited to be back there again for Natasha and Emma’s big day. 

I turned up as the guests were arriving and the venue looked stunning, the flowers were an absolute masterpiece and as I saw Natasha arriving and Emma walking down the aisle I knew that it was going to be a stunningly beautiful day. 

The ceremony was full of love and laughter - you could tell how much Natasha and Emma loved each other, it was obvious to see. Laughter rang through the conservatory throughout the service and tears followed as their personal vows were read. 

It was a gorgeous day weather wise too, slightly overcast, which people always think isn’t great but trust me when I say it’s the most flattering light you could have at a wedding, there is no harsh shadows and no squinting eyes - so flattering!

After the ceremony, I went for a short walk around the venue with Natasha and Emma, it’s so nice to take the couple away after they’ve said hello to their friends and family. You’re with people the whole day so it’s nice just to be with each other alone, especially in Northbrook Park as there are so many little areas and nooks that we can use and grab some really nice intimate moments together. I especially love the wood store at Northbrook Park - slightly odd, I know, but it gives such an interesting backdrop.

To get your seats in the reception you had to take a shot which I think is a fabulous idea getting the party started straightaway. It was clear to see the relationship between Natasha and Emma was built on fun and laughter, throughout the whole day they were giggling and making each other smile, it really was a stunning day with two stunning Bride’s at a stunning location, I wish them all the best in their future together, I know that they’ll be laughing together for a very long time.

Katie and Chris • Hartsfield Manor • Surrey Documentary Wedding Photographer •

It was a cloudy rainy day as I pulled up outside Hartsfield Manor, but that didn’t take anything away from its beauty. The great thing about this venue is that it is beautiful on the inside as well as the outside, so I knew that we would still be able to get some beautiful shots. 

I meet Katie and her bridesmaids in an upstairs room as they were doing their finishing touches, the nerves were clear to see, they were very organised and were all ready quickly. I always suggest timing it so you put your dress on, have a 5 minute breather and then head on to the ceremony, just so you’re not waiting around in your dress. This way you avoid any potential spillage on, or spoilage of, the dress and you limit the time sitting around getting nervous! 

The nerves had really built by the time we headed downstairs for the ceremony, but wow did it look beautiful, the stunning room over looking the gardens was beautiful, and Katie and her bridesmaids looked fab walking down the aisle. As we knew the day was questionable weather-wise we had the confetti thrown inside as they walked back down the aisle as a married couple, this is always a great option if the venue allow it.

After letting the guests and newlyweds grab a drink and have a chat, I knew that it has stopped raining and swiftly grabbed the guests needed for the formal shots and got these done outside nice and quickly. It was great being able to get these with the Manor in the background - thank you weather Gods! It stayed dry for the couple shots too although it was still very wet so we stayed on safe ground for the dress, using the gravel and the stone entrance way at the front of the building and then we grabbed some on the stairs inside too. There’s always a way of getting outside as long as you trust me I can make it happen! 

“It was always you.”
