Thank you so much for the amazing photos. We love them & have recommended you to everyone. Thank you for making us both so at ease, it really made the day. All the best for 2017, Victoria & Rhys x

After a slight hiatus blogging weddings (I’ve been so busy photographing them!), this is perfect story to kick-start showcasing all my new work.

Rhys & Victoria love living by the river in Twickenham, London, so it made sense that their wedding day would take place by the river & the couple found the perfect meadow of The Secret River Garden wedding venue for their secret garden wedding.

August 13th came around quickly & Victoria got ready at her sister’s house, surrounded by her bridesmaids & flower girls, then walked in her blue satin Manolo Blahnik shoes the short distance to nearby St Mary’s church where the couple had their wedding ceremony. Local pub, The Swan, were hosting their annual boat race & this made for some great photographs to & from the church, with everyone cheering & passing on well wishes to the couple – what a lovely experience! After the speeches, I allowed the couple some quiet time together & we explored the gardens of nearby York House.

The couple’s secret garden theme was perfect, with everything & everyone relaxed & a welcome brief of ‘we love what you do, just do your thing‘. I love what I do, too – especially on days like this that are filled with smiling guests, gold sequins, hidden keys, trailing ivy, edible flowers in pink champagne & ultimately one very happy couple!

Rhys & Victoria, thank you for letting me capture the story of your beautiful wedding day & I hope to bump into you down by the river, soon! Nx
