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.

Rainbows in Brighton • Documentary Wedding Photographer • Brighton Wedding Photography • Rainbow Wedding •

There was no rain or sun at this quirky wedding, but that didn’t mean there were any less rainbows! Arriving together with their friends and family, Becca and Cara made quite an entrance. A quick word with the registrars and they were swiftly into the ceremony; it was a gorgeous moment as Becca’s son handed over the rings and their friend serenaded the room with a beautiful acapella love song. 

Speaking with the happy couple beforehand, I knew that they really wanted to focus on natural shots, and didn’t want any staged formal images of their guests. It is music to my ears when Bride’s request this. It means that the images I capture of their friends and family aren’t staged at all, there are no awkward smiles or grimaces in some cases (!) and it doesn’t take up any time during the day that could otherwise be spent celebrating.

With this in mind we threw the confetti, and then the guests were warmed up on the pavement outside with a selection of alcoholic beverages! This loosened everyone up even more as we then strolled along the promenade and then the beach towards the next brilliantly extravagant venue.

I loved being on the beach and capturing these natural walking moments, it was really nice to have a little bit of time together with the newlyweds for (just a few) shots of them together before heading to the ‘Eastenders’ style buffet in the pub – Becca’s words! Everything about their day was as relaxed as possible, with enough drinking time and no mad schedules. It really allowed them to mingle and speak with all of their friends – which can be a very rare thing!

The laid back approach to their celebration had no effect on the love they had for each other. You could tell that they adored one another, that they were meant to be and that all importantly love is love, is love, is love.
