Savage And Bean

You know its going to be a good one when the main focus of the shoot is food!

I was contacted by Adam &  James from savageandbean. who have now teamed up there unique business to create one super gourmet food offering, Jame’s coffee and refreshments  matched alongside Adams wood fired oven tasty delights. I met up with the lads at one of the many events they have been booked for, this one was at a cycling event where they were providing their awesome wood fired foods and incredible coffee, it was a cold so the conditions were perfect to tuck in to everything they had to offer.

Lots of images later I was stuffed from indulging in the entire menu, well I could let the food spoil now could I?

Sopley Mill Wedding – Steve and Carly Get Married

My first ever wedding at the stunning Sopley Mill, near Christchurch.

Today it was the turn of the ever so lovely Steve and Carly. It started off as normal meeting a nervous but excited bunch of ladies who had the fizz already flowing upon my arrival. I stayed with the ladies all morning and sent my good friend and fellow photographer James to meet up with the men. We both had great mornings and new already what a special wedding it would be complimented by a gorgeous day.

I left ahead of Carly to meet Steve and James at the mill who were already and eager to go, I was shortly followed by the gorgeous bride and we got the ceremony underway.

What I love about Sopley Mill is that it is its own, No one else around huge grounds and a stunning backdrop of countryside to fill with gorgeous wedding photos,

The day was perfect and after some laughs in the speeches the band started up and it was party time!

Wedding At The East Close Hotel, Mr & Mrs Turner

What a gorgeous sunny day for a wedding in the heart of the new forest, at the stunning East Close Hotel Hampshire. TodayIt’s the turn of Rob and Hannah to tie the knot!

I have known Hannah for some time, she is a former florist and that is how we originally met. You can imagine how chuffed I was when she asked me to photograph her special day.

The day started as normal, I was greeted with the sound of various bottles of fizz being opened and lots of laughter and girly giggles. I got under way with the bridal prep photos before the horse and carriage arrived to pickup the beautiful bride. At this point I left the ladies to do the finishing touches as I headed off to meet rob at the hotel/BAR ;).

He was a tad nervous but looking forward to marrying Hannah, who didn’t take long to arrive and the ceremony got under way.

After the ceremony we made use of the stunning country grounds for some lovely portraits of the happy couple, shortly followed by speeches and the first dance.

It was a truly lovely day seeing someone that I have know for sometime get married!
