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.

It was a beautiful frosty morning at Northbrook Park, there was not a cloud in the sky, and it stayed like that the whole day. Having shot their engagement photos and knowing Katie and her sister already I was so excited for today! It was a real friend event, as my friend Sophie was doing hair, and another friend Sarah made the cake!

Getting ready was lots of fun, with Katie and Chris in next door apartments, any running in and out of the venue by Chris had to be done under cover of the best mans jacket as they ran past Katie’s window! It was great for me, as it took all of 5 seconds to go between bride and groom to get their getting ready shots!

The mornings always start off with loads of time to spare, very chilled and relaxed, and then suddenly, you’ve only got 45 minutes left until you need to be out! There was a sudden rush of activity and everyone sprung into action! It all worked beautifully though as we all took our places for the beginning of the ceremony. Katie looked absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle through their closest family and friends, holding onto her handsome father who was dressed in uniform. The tears couldn’t be held back as Chris and Katie locked eyes. The sunshine beamed through the beautiful conservatory at Northbrook Park as they exchanged their vows and many tissues were passed around the intimate family gathering.

Tears were followed by cheers with the awesome confetti line, and after dusting each other off, we headed for a walk around the grounds for their couple shots. I loved this venue and the weather was to die for, it was cold but the sun kept the chill off, and also made for some beautiful shadows and contrasts in the light.  We were even joined by an albino Peacock! Now who can say that about their wedding!

The speeches were extremely heartfelt and personal giving the evening a warm fuzzy feeling, which continued long into the night with hilarious dance offs between family members and friends.

I truly loved capturing Katie and Chris’s wedding - it was so special to work alongside friends - it was a perfect day, and I know that they will be extremely happy together.
