Another fab Wedding by Jules & Sue

Terry the dog :-)

A few weeks ago our friends Ashton and Sarah brought Terry in for a photoshoot. Terry was a proper crazy little dog but so much fun and we had a great time photographing  him. Im pretty sure Terry found some caffeine before he came too see us 🙂

We managed a lovely selection of photos including a few with his mummy and daddy despite Terry’s craziness 🙂

I hope you enjoy these. Please check out our pets below.

Danny and Dan get married

On the weekend we joined Danny and Dan for their wedding at Upwaltham Barns in West Sussex. Danny and Dan booked us a couple of years ago and we have spoken several times since then to fine tune our part of thee day, Simple really because they loved our photos and our relaxed style so we just had to do what we do at weddings, go along, have some fun and take beautiful photographs 😀 I think, loving weddings as much as we do is what makes Sue and I stand out, I know that our photos are beautiful (we get so many wonderful comments) but it goes much beyond that. Its much more about us and how we integrate seamlessly into our weddings meaning our couples rarely ever notice us.

We started our day at Upwaltham Barn, extra early because Good wood Festival of speed was on so traffic was an issue, but we rocked up and started photographing the details and general buzz. But soon enough Danny arrived and we started with the prep photos including her absolutely stunning dress and Jimmy Choo shoes as well of course, everything else too. Dan arrived on a coach from Brighton with their son Frankie so a few more shots of the boys before we were called into the ceremony.

Afterwards we spilled out into the decorated courtyard in glorious sunshine for bubbles and canapĂŠs and of course photographs. Our videographer had a superb drone fitted with a still cameras which his something we plan to introduce very soon, so watch this space, it was fun and providing not done too much added a great few photos to the wedding day. After our photos and family groups we took Danny and Dan off for some portraits before heading into dinner which was followed by speeches and then more bubbles and beers out in the courtyards. This was complimented by a Popcorn and Candi Floss machine and a beautiful fruit cart, all of which made for a lovely relaxed afternoon.

After wards we were invited back into the courtyard area for the cake cutting which Danny and Dan decided they would do outside, that was a fun twist too and why not make the absolute most of the days sunshine,. ☀️  We then headed into the barn for the dancing and evening party with the band.

Sue and I said our goodbyes and left for the journey home, Thanks guys for looking after us today, You were both amazing and a whole lot of fun. Sally you were awesome and to our good friends the Yau’s it was great to see you and catch up too.

Great wedding, great couple, great people and great venue. What more is needed 🙂

Love to you all, you really do make our job a joy ❤️

Holly and Matt’s wonderful wedding day

Last week we joined Holly and Matt for their beautiful wedding day at New Place in Shirrel Heath which is a very popular wedding venue for us.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING DAY WITH AWESOME PEOPLE ❤️

Holly and Matt were recommended to us by Kimberley and Andrew who’s wedding we shot as well as their growing family too 🙂 We were actually already booked for Holly and Matt’s chosen date but on finding this out they changed their date so that we could join them, No pressure there then 😄

We started our day with Holly and the girls at home for some lovely relaxed prep shots and lots of beautiful details and of course getting to know everyone properly, before heading off to St Johns Church in Warsash to meet the boys for a few shots before the ceremony, Once there we were greeted by the vicar, again a fantastic vicar which set the pace for a superb ceremony and we were not disappointed. It was a beautiful service and a perfect start for Matt and Holly.

Outside we spilled into the sunshine for some hugs and kisses photos and then confetti before leaving for New Place, I did remember to thank the vicar for a “proper good service” he replied, “Thanks, Jules, I proper enjoyed it too” 😍 made me happy.

Once at New place, we headed almost straight into the family groups because it was windy and the weather could have been changeable, to be fair it stayed nice and I found a beautiful sheltered spot for the formals.  Afterwards, we took Matt and Holly for a walk for some portraits which just about worked out perfect for the guests being called into dinner.

After dinner and a few more portraits, we had the speeches, short and sharp and very much to the point, perfect in fact, a few tears and a few giggles.  Out into the bar whilst the band setup ready for a fun evening.

Sue and I photographed the cake cutting then into the dancing and a few dances before saying our goodbyes. A top day with amazing people again and in a beautiful venue.

Thanks everyone for such a wonderful day with you all ❤️

Beautiful wedding with Alex and Becky

On Saturday we joined Alex and Becky for their wedding in the beautiful New Forest at the Bartley Lodge Hotel. It has been a favourite venue of ours for a long time so we were both excited about this day.  We met Alex and Becky when we photographed her sister’s wedding back in 2015, “Ian and Laura’s big day” This was also an amazing day so we had plenty to be excited about. Alex is also now one of my cycling buddies and will be joining my cycling club very soon which is also pretty exciting stuff.

We started our day with Becky and the girls at Dad’s house in Wellow, Once again a lovely peaceful vibe and whilst the girls got ready the bubbles flowed and Sue and I got to work. Lots of beautiful details and preparation shots and with almost every shutter click the weather got brighter and better until all we could see were blue skies.

Sue and I then headed off to Bartley Lodge to meet with Alex and the boys, a few fun shots and a few more details and we were happy and waiting for our beautiful bride. Becky arrived a few minutes later in a truly stunning VW camper “sleepy Jean” supplied by our friends at “Vinnies Vintage Vehicles”  I love when our clients get creative with their wedding transport. 😃 A few photos then into the ceremony for a lovely wedding with probably the most emotional reading from Alex’s Mum, Sue that I have ever hear, Beautiful and heartfelt.

Afterwards, we spilt out into the gardens and the sunshine for a lovely hour enjoying the day, Sue and I took some beautiful photos before heading off with Alex and Becky for a few photos in the New Forest with the Camper. Then back to the family groups and in for the wedding breakfast which started with the speeches. 3 really lovely speeches and then dinner.  Afterwards, we headed back outside for a couple more photos before being called in to cut the cake, just after we were dancing and shortly after that our day came to a close.

I was pretty excited to get home and upload the photos today, sure enough, there were some crackers so after a few facebook teasers Sue and I headed off to bed, tired and very happy.

Another absolutely wonderful wedding with amazing people. I hope you enjoy these taster photos that I hope will keep you going until Alex and Becky return from South Africa.

Thank you, everyone, for making this such an amazing day

May the 4th be with you……….

Ok cheesy title 😂 but anything but a cheesy wedding day for Matt and Jean on May 4th this year, yes Star wars day!  We met Matt and Jean at a wedding a couple of years ago, you might remember I raved about that wedding back then, not just because it was a lovely day at Rownhams House but because of the people. They were all Foster parents and the children were mostly fostered. Not only a humbling experience but for me a life changing one too.  I met this little lad Lucien, He suffered from several nasty life changing things including cerebral palsy 🙁 but he was the most energetic happy and well behaved little boy I have seen in a long time. It’s true to say I am a people person but this little lad melted my heart, I would have taken him home with me and I feel the same way 2 years on.  🙂

Lucien is Matt and Jeans, little lad……. See my rambling story was going somewhere.

Matt and Jean chose our small day 4-hour package, they were tying the knot at Southampton Registry office and then heading off in a vintage VW camper “Nellie”  to the New Forest Pub which is where the party was going to happen. After a short but lovely ceremony we all headed off to the New Forest pub in convoy, Once there we headed into the gardens for some sunshine and enjoyed an absolutely wonderful afternoon watching the children laugh and enjoy. Once again my heartstrings were tugged. Amazing to see so many children that started life in such a shitty way (sorry, not sorry) having just the most amazing day and life. There are a couple that deserves a proper mention. My little man Lucien, OMG what a complete gorgeous dude, he has grown into a superb little man and walks and gets around just like everyone else now, That’s a Big deal if you saw him a couple years ago. And Jimma,  Again such a massive improvement and so blooming confident too, Matt and Jean, Tracey and Simon you should be so very proud.

After a couple hours on the lawns we came in for the speech, just one, heartfelt and proper just like speeches should be, The kids started dancing and singing haha and the adults took advantage of the setting sun and the New Forest Pub’s blankets too whilst they waited for the BBQ to be served.

Sue and I headed home. Although a short wedding for us, it was again a very special day filled with awe-inspiring people and I feel richer for having met them. I absolutely love what I do but as it goes it pales compared to what some people do in the “goodness stakes”

TOP wedding and TOP people, thank you, Matt and Jean, for letting us be part of your journey.  Much love to you and your wonderful children.

May the force be with you X
