Charlotte and Jonathan – their March wedding at Oakwood House in full and Softmint moment …

Oh it was chilly. A March wedding for Charlotte and Jonathan. We had all hoped for a bright spring day but it just wasn’t to be. But it certainly did not dampen anyone’s spirits and the quality of the light was just perfect for portraits.

Charlotte has very fond memories of Oakwood House as her father worked there when she was a child. And so it seemed very right that she and Jonathan celebrated their marriage within hailing distance of Charlotte’s old school (and I heard a few stories about that too …) and with so many friends and family with them.

Particularly their two children, Flick and Ollie. Who didn’t want me to photograph him … but then who let me photograph him … and then photobombed lots of our shots! And Flick – you know how to work a camera, young lady!

With Charlotte’s bridesmaids, there really wasn’t a quiet moment during bridal prep. The laughter and giggles could be heard from far down the corridor so I knew exactly where to find them! And the boys, including “Steve Collins from school” (exactly the words on his buttonhole) were such fun to photograph and yes, Ollie photobombed their shot too!

One of my favourite images (and there any many) is of Charlotte opening up the pack of Softmints which Ollie had (as bribery) right at the beginning of their ceremony. When I consult with brides and grooms, I tell them that every wedding is unique and that there is always a moment, during every wedding, that I think “I’ve not seen that before …” and the Softmint moment was that moment!

Sit back and enjoy …

  1. We are so absolutely in love with every single last image you took, there just aren’t words that exist to express how happy we both are with the way you were with us and our guests. It felt like an old friend was just snapping away and making everyone laugh in the process. You were wonderful, the pictures are just beautiful and we are forever grateful. With much love and gratitude, Charlotte and Jonathan xxx
