Harriet, Steven and little taylor came to visit me last week at the studio. We had some fun for sure, mainly trying to entertain Taylor as he wasn’t to keen on having his photo taken. I’m not sure why as he’s gorgeous with lovely blonde hair and big blue eyes.
We spent a while playing games and warming Taylor up to the idea of having his photo taken and my god when he did start laughing and smiling he was so cute! Plus his mum and dad were fab and didn’t stress as I assured them we would get there in the end.
Both Harriet and Steven were great! So happy to be there and were a pleasure to photograph and capture with their special little boy, their first family portrait for Taylor’s 1st Birthday. A game of playing peak a boo, singing and a balloon or two to help entertain Taylor but wasn’t it just worth it.
Christian and Sally
24th June 2016
I knew I was going to get along with Christian and Sally from our very first meeting they were both so friendly, kind and excited for their big day. Talking me though all their plans for the day and ideas. I couldn’t wait to shoot their day for them especially with a different location from normal.
Both Sally and Christian love their water sports and spend a lot of time at Box End Kempston so it only made sense to hold their special day in a place which was special to them and god did it pay off?
The venue looked stunning with all their finishing touches, sunflowers throughout the venue, fairy lights scattered around and so many personal handmade touches to their tables. Arriving to the venue in the beautiful “Mary Jane” Sally looked out of this world arriving with her Father. Their bridal party also played a big part in their day helping get ready and celebrate their day.
After a ceremony full of so much love and beautiful readings from their children, will had so much open space for some couple shots and I made sure we got use of everything we could as mad as Sally and Christian thought I was when asking them to get in a field of grass! The
shots paid off.
A wedding full of love, laugher, dancing, fun and special moments. Thank you for choosing me to capture your special day.

It was simply love.. I know it sounds crazy it say it was all about love being it their wedding day and all. But Clare and Jim really were doing it because they simply love each other.
With their close family and friends, you could see the true beauty in their relationship throughout the whole day. Their wedding day was held in Cambridgeshire. With the girls getting ready at the Robinson College where I was able to get some stunning shots of the girls all made up before we headed off for the ceremony.
Their reception was then held at The Bourn Golf Club. Where we were surrounded by a lovely little lake and bridge.. lots of trees and fields which where the perfect backdrop for photographs.
Whilst the guests enjoyed champagne and canapé’s, Myself and the new Mr and Mrs Hodge, went off for some Bride and Groom Shots and we were definitely lucky with the beautiful sunny weather.
Back to their guests to continue enjoying their party celebrations in true style.
Clare and Jim, thank you for letting me be apart of your day, it was an honour.’
Laura and Dominic went with a simple wedding. Something that wasn’t all about how many guests they had or how much they spent on their day, but about the love they have for each other.
Their wedding took place at Laura’s mum and dads house where they had a marquee set up. Laura went for a vintage style afternoon tea which looked lovely, fresh homemade cakes, canapés and homemade sloe gin. She even made her own wedding cake… How she had time for it all I’ll never know!
Her homemade bouquet was finished by her mum with fresh flowers and it was stunning. The flowers were so fresh you could smell them in the next room, lovely colorings and a pure simple finishing touch to add to Laura’s hair, make up and golden looking dress.
They had an old fashion red double deck bus to take them to their ceremony with all their guests and it made an amazing backdrop for group photos afterwards.

Sue and Andy got married at The Swan Hotel in Bedford overlooking the river Ouse. The hotel was full of character and history adding to their day.
With elegant dresses for Sue and her bridal party, detailed lace and soft colorings. The flowers had a lovely rustic look and were the perfect finishing touch.
The ceremony room had beautiful high ceiling with large open windows looking over the river. The chairs had been finished with a champagne lace ribbon, which added class.
Sue and Andy I loved your vintage and rustic styled day!
