William and Victoria tie the knot………..at last.

Our Son Andy was born in 1985 which was just about the time Sue met her friend Gaye (William’s mum)  and they have remained friends ever since. William and Andy were kinda forced together 😁 but within a very short time were inseparable and have remained so ever since. So we have known Will for many years. Its been wonderful watching Andy and Will grow into the best friends they are today and likewise its been absolutely wonderful watching Will and Victoria’s relationship blossom over the last 16 years or so. We all knew they were meant for each other, it was only a matter of time 😁

Last weekend Will married his long-term sweetheart Victoria and Sue and I were there to capture the day. We started the day with Victoria and the girls at home which was also where the boys were getting ready so it was super handy for us to capture both. Lots of details and some fun with the boys as well as catching up with lots of old friends, Then we headed into the ceremony room at home for a beautiful and very personal ceremony. Home weddings are always so lovely and this was no exception, the house was perfect for prep and the beautiful ceremony and then a gorgeous marquee out in the summer sunshine.

Afterwards it was out into the sunshine for bubbles and canapés and lots of photos, We had a great time with the relaxed photos and then some real fun family shots before taking Will and Victoria off for a few couple shots. Then after a couple of lovely hours it was time to head into diner and the marquee looked amazing and the food was wonderful thanks to the caterer’s Vanilla.  Afterwards the speeches and they were just brilliant, well executed and perfect timing by all 3 speakers. Back out onto the lawns and another beautiful hour just chilling out and enjoying the sunshine. Wow where did that wedding go!

The next part of this amazing day was cake cutting, the cake was probably the prettiest I have ever seen, delicate and beautiful. Afterwards it was straight into dancing and again it was pretty special, smoke machines and beautifully placed decorations as well as 3 crazy bridesmaids with confetti canons 😁

Congratulations guys and thank you for being FAB

Another amazing Porter wedding

On Thursday we joined Chelsey and Sam for their beautiful wedding at the Three Choirs Vineyard in Hampshire. Chelsey contacted us about a year ago after seeing us at Rich and Cath’s wedding and we have looked forward to the day since.

We started our day with Chelsey at home which was a perfect time to meet all the girls and grab a few details too. We then headed off to the Vineyard to meet with Sam and the lads, and to familiarise ourselves with the new layout there too. The weather predictions all week had been awful so we were concerned about our “plan B” options  but on the day we were super lucky because it was dry although very windy, thankfully we managed to find a few sheltered spots so all good 😊

After as few shots of the boys and the guests arriving we waited for Chelsey to arrive in a lovely Jag and after a few photos she was wicked in to see the registrars before she walked out on the room to her waiting guests looking fabulous.

Although the ceremony was now moved under shelter it was still lovely, to be fair a little snug but a great plan b option and most importantly everyone was very happy. Chelsey looked amazing and they read the most amazing vows which just added to the already beautiful ceremony. Afterwards out into the courtyard for drinks and photos.

We took the family groups around by the pond because it was the most sheltered spot and thankfully it was spot on, no wind problems and beautiful light and backgrounds too, What else could a photographer ask for 😁 All this whilst we were listening to the great live music Chelsey and Sam had chosen.

We then did a few couple shots in the Vineyard before being called into dinner which was perfect timing because the rain started just about then.

After dinner we got settled in for the speeches, OMG they were amazing, long but so entertaining and I think the whole room was laughing at one point, so many stories, mostly naughty but all so funny. Then outside again and coffee whilst the room was being prep’d.

Back in for the cake cutting and lovely first dance before Sue and I said our goodbyes.

Absolutely top wedding day Chelsey and Sam ❤️ Everything went just perfectly. Rich and Cath, thank you for recommending us X everyone else, thank you for being fun on the day.

Tom and Emma’s engagement shoot

Sue and I have been looking forward to Tom and Emma’s wedding for a while now and a few weeks ago we made the most of the weather and visited the venue for an engagement shoot. We include these shoots in most of our wedding packages although normally run the studio.

We met with tom and Emma close to their wedding venue and had a wander around these beautiful grounds, the idea being is we will visit these again on the wedding day so its important for us to know that its a sensible option within the given timetable of the day, we are super conscious of not making the wedding day a “photo shoot” so by spending an hour before hand makes sure we allow time in the planning form important shots like these, without this work on our part the wedding day becomes a little rushed which we hate.

Tom and Emma are a lovely couple and having worked with their families before, we know the wedding day will be amazing too.

Check out our wedding photos and book us, our wedding day packages all include Sue and myself taking photos and range from  £695 to £1500 for weekend dates and £695 to £1350 for weekdays.

Diamonds are forever…….

Last weekend we joined one of my dearest friends Chris for his wedding with the lovely Noelle. I have been friends with Chris for many years and in all that time I have never seen him as happy as I did last weekend.  Chris and Noelle met in her homeland America whilst Chris was helping at her local church. From that moment on they were bested with each other and Saturday was a celebration of that.

We started our day with Noelle and home which was lovely because we got to meet her family as well as take a few lovely details and preparation shots and we headed off to the lovely Highfield Church. Once at the church we met with the vicar and a few other people and eventually, Chris 😁  A few lovely relaxed shots with the lads and then Noelle arrived.

She walked into a crowded and silent church and one very happy husband to be. The service that followed was a truly personal one, Noelle’s dad took part of the ceremony and this made all the difference, We managed some beautiful photos without fuss and interruption which is our main goal during the ceremony, plenty of time for us to interrupt later 😂😂 only kidding.

After the ceremony the guests were greeted row by row by the newlyweds which was a nice American touch then it was off to the reception in Timsbury.  We stopped off on the way for a few photos and then were greeted by the guests at the beautiful Timsbury Manor.  We had a couple of hours out on the lawns enjoying the beautiful sunshine and of course a few photos under the beautiful willow tree. We then headed into dinner which was followed by speeches, 4 of them and all were enjoyable, I especially enjoyed John the best mans speech, probably because I know Chris so well I guess. After the speeches we cut the cake then took Chris and Noelle out for some portraits whilst the sun was a little lower.

After the portraits we danced. The evening was super lively and everybody was enjoying themselves, But Sue and I were tired after a long and very hot day so decided to head home 😁

Wow what an amazing day that was. Chris, you found your Diamond ❤️

A little insight into our weddings

Sue and I thought that we would give you just a small insight as to what your wedding day would look like if you booked us to photograph it for you. We are offering some amazing packages at the moment and whilst stock last a free gift so message me for details.

But first a little about how we see your wedding day.

Moments are an art, not a science. There’s no technical precision behind a moment. They’re beautiful happenstances of light and movement and observation: a tangle of hair in the late-afternoon sun; children laughing on an English lawn; an ivory dress in a marble hall. Yes, moments are romantic. Yet, as the shutter falls, romantic observation is etched forever in digital format. That’s Julian Porter Photography – a perfect marriage of the romantic and the technical.

Julian and Sue Porter would rather capture a moment than create it. They love the beauty and the joy of weddings. Yet Julian’s as happy in his digital editing suite as he is capturing the play of light around the smiling face of a beautiful bridesmaid.

Julian and Sue will arrive far too early for your wedding. They’ll work with meticulous attention to detail. Julian will have two cameras around his neck, while Sue, his wife of more than 30 years, will carry another. It’s a dual perspective on the biggest day of your life.

Sue brings a feminine focus to the detail that makes your day: the home-made invitations, the elaborate favour’s, the beaded lace in your dress and the pleat in your shoes. Her shutter falls on tears and laughter, on small children, big hats, and beaming smiles.

At home in the theatre or deep in a romantic novel, Sue sees your wedding as the ultimate love story. Where did you meet? What did you wear? Where did he propose?

You won’t notice Julian and Sue at your wedding. They’ll dress and act like guests. They’ll mingle and chat. They’ll nibble. They might even sip some wine. She’ll cry at the speeches; he’ll laugh fondly at her. In between, they’ll be hard at work, capturing moments like there’s no tomorrow.

This is storybook photography at its best. They seal each moment with a genuine love for there work. Then, when the flowers have faded and the confetti’s swept away you will be left with a beautiful selection of wedding photographs to cherish forever. Julian and Sue have been creating memories together for many years and have thousands of happy clients all around the world. Join those happy clients; Call us for a chat today.
