Taylor and Matt
Oh my goodness! This couple and little Bella are freaking awesome! An adventure to Torquay, Races on the beach, throwing pebbles in the sea and having a little sing song. We had the best time. Nothing was awkward or forced. We connected right away and still do as if we have known each other for ever! These three lovely people will always have a place in my heart and I think I have found new festival bud's!
When Taylor first got in touch to book a session with me. Naturally I had a few important questions to ask...
How did you meet?
I'd like to say we met in a really awesome way, but it was through Plenty of Fish... After a few days of texting we met at a local pub to have a quiet whiskey and get to know one another. 6 hours later we were still partying as if we had known eachother forever & the rest is history. I literally met my other half that day, my best friend, my festival buddy, my band member - we have been inseparable ever since!
Your proposal story...
It was Christmas 2014 and we had gone up to London with my parents and Matts daughter (my stepdaughter, Bella) After a crazy day exploring London, battling hamleys at Christmas and failing at Ice Skating, we went into winter wonderland and it was magical. I've never been a fan of Christmas, and have always gone abroad or secluded myself from it. Matt had always said he wanted me to experience a proper christmas, a memorable one, and that he did! Now Matt and I are not the most serious of couples, we laugh a lot and don't take things too seriously. We had never talked about marriage and it was definitely not something I expected; so when he got down on one knee in the middle of winter wonderland, i turned and saw my mum with her camera out and little Bella staring up at me with the biggest grin I was speechless, literally! He read me the most beautiful letter and seeing this serious, emotionally side to him is something I will treasure forever. I am so excited to marry my bestie & would love for you to be part of our journey x

Have you ever wondered what wedding photos at Restronguet Barton (Cornwall) would look like? Well… Here you go!
I do love a good trek up the country for the right wedding and the right couple. Kathy and Luke's wedding at All saints church in Newborough and reception at the magnificent Swinfen Hall Hotel in Lichfield (nearish to Birmingham) was totally the right wedding, Kathy and Luke, totally the right couple.
This wedding kicked some serious bottom! There were so many amazing moments including the Bride and Bridesmaids arriving to the ceremony on the back Harley Davidson Motorcycles, a lovely outdoor ceremony with an actual tying of the knot and lots of happy tears, no table plan, yummy food, emotional and hilarious speeches and dancing the night away in the wonderful Big Chief Tipis to the upbeat live band. Perfect Day!
I'm so excited to share Becky and Chris's Epic and fun wedding at Bridwell Park Estate. What a day! Sunshine, home grown flowers, so much confetti, over 100 people attempting "the floss" for a group photo, some of the best food and live music I have ever enjoyed at a wedding, smoke bombs, hilarious speeches, a crazy dance floor and a seriously epic bouquet toss (you'll see) Becky and Chris are one of the most laid back and fun couples I have ever met and I enjoyed every second of their day.
Sometimes Two Groom’s are better than one! Jamie and César had an amazing and super sunny wedding at St Elizabeth’s House. On this day I had the chance to witness and photograph so many emotional, loving and fun moments. I think Jamie and César and their lovely families and friends have to go on record as one of the most tactile and openly affectionate bunch of people I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. It was so wonderful to see.
I absolutely loved photographing Gayle and Thomas's wedding day at Buckland Tout-Saints in Devon. From the beautiful chaos of the morning, bright colours, big balloons, a fairy tea party for the kids and space hooper races to the many wonderfully hilarious expressions and comic moments between Gayle and Thomas, who are so fun to be in the presence of, and to photograph. Some of my favourite moments include a big "YARP" from Gayle during the vowels, diving face first into the cake, face licking, armpit sniffing, photo bombing, incredibly sweet moments between couples, parents and children and lying on the grass and eating candy necklaces (you'll see).
Emma and Gareth’s beautiful barn wedding at The Green Cornwall was truly amazing! Some of the highlights include Odd socks, a best man being assigned to sweaty head watch, a super emotional Gareth as his girls walked down the aisle, pom pom confetti, belly laughs all day long, fat cigars, a hilarious "your mum" joke during the speeches, an epic bouquet toss and a fun dance floor...
Jess and Emily’s incredible Clifftop wedding at Whitsand Bay Fort. This glorious sunny day included Two beautiful Brides, two lovely families, two epic Dad reactions to their daughters in their dresses, face aching laughter, an adorable dog of honour, crazy beautiful kids, the sunshine, the most incredible Cornish landscape, multiple buggy rides and lads with sick (in a good way) dance floor moves.
I loved Leigh and Adele’s whole day at Whitsand Bay Fort. But my favourite parts were the super sweet ceremony (with Disney music of course) The balloon fight on the clifftop, Leigh constantly having to change glasses (hehe) and heading to Cawsand (a nearby beach less than two miles away)
If Claire and Tim were to write down ingredients for an absolutely amazing and fun wedding, then they defiantly could. Their wedding at New Barton Barns was perfect! so fun, so laid back, so romantic and so full of love (and Crumpets).
If you are a couple in love and you connected with the photographs above, AWESOME!
Let's hit the beach so that you can have prints like these (of your own beautiful memories) that you can keep close to your heart for ever and more!
