Farewell Style Me Pretty

It’s with much sadness we say farewell to Style Me Pretty. This iconic brand will be ‘switched off’ at the end of April by the company who took them over last year.

To lose such a valuable brand in our industry is heartbreaking. I don’t know about you but to think of the amount of archival inspiration, and over 10 years of hard work building the brand, can just disappear with a flick of a switch is saddening and frankly quite frightening. We pour so much time into our digital lives and the realisation it can be taken away so quickly makes me sit up and think ‘is there a better way?’

I’m deeply honoured to have been featured on Style Me Pretty, their standards were high and it was extremely difficult to be accepted for a feature which made wearing the SMP feature badge a very proud moment indeed. SMP you will be sorely missed, and sincerely wish the team the best of luck xx

Sneak PeekFaye

So lucky to photograph Faye’s post wedding bridal shoot.  Weddings are so fast paced with little time to dedicate to one element during the day, so it is really lovely to be able to spend a couple of hours just documenting the brides style and dress after the wedding day.  I definitely recommend any bride treating themselves to a day of pampering on set and enjoying their dress again before it gets packed away forever xx

Sneak PeekSarah & Jonathan marry at Gosfield Hall

On a cold winters day in January Sarah and Jonathon tied the knot at Gosfield Hall.  Gosfield Hall is magical in the icy air of January.  Frost bitten grass mixed with the rosy tones of garden roses and silver hues of the bridesmaids…all a perfect pairing to celebrate a winter wedding xx

Featured on Rock My WeddingLaura & Chris marry at Prested Hall

 

I really loved photographing the wedding of Laura and Chris.  Laura is a very talented Fashion/Beauty/Lifestyle bloggist, link to her website below, and Chris is just super creative and has talents ranging from being a musician to photographing weddings.  Their ceremony and reception took place at Prested Hall which sits in a very pretty location in Essex.  The flowers were created by the incredibly talented Rebecca Avery Flowers, who also happens to be a dear friend of mine.  Although there were many highlights capturing their wedding, one of the main has to be  Laura’s bridal styling; she looked incredible with her beautiful lace gown created by Sottero & Midgley, and hair and make up by Amy Lawrence MUA .  Their gorgeous wedding is featured on Rock My Wedding today – so click here to read more of their wedding story xx
