Charlotte Kemp & Reece Smith met on a night out, exchanged numbers and have not looked back since! The couple moved from Uxbridge with their children, Summer, Logan and Amelie to Waterlooville and then started planning their wedding. Charlotte is a maternity support worker and Reece is an electrician. The couple decided to marry at The Solent Hotel in Whiteley (www.solenthotel.co.uk) in June 2018. 65 guests turned up to watch them exchange their vows. Charlotte was excited but nervous before the ceremony but concentrated on Reece at the end of the aisle! Hair and make up was by Missy’s vintage weddings. Flowers for the room decor were by the amazing Little Lillies (www.little-lillies.co.uk)
7th July 2018, World Cup Day
The 7th of July was a very special day. The England football team qualified for their first World Cup semi final since 1990. It was also one of the hottest days of the year, during the longest heatwave since 1976.
For Hannah & Karl Feary it was the day they were to say I do. Hannah had always wanted a fairy tale wedding complete with horse and carriage and that is what she had. Hannah and Karl had met 7 years ago and said it was love at first sight. After 3 years together Karl proposed.
70 guests arrived to watch the fairytale unfold at Old Thorns Golf and Country Club in Liphook – www.oldthorns.com .Hannah chose a beautiful ballgown style dress with an amazing cathedral length veil, which I always love to photograph! The bride allowed guests to watch the game during the wedding breakfast which was a nice touch and I’m not sure many would of agreed to! Hannah had her make up expertly applied by Georgina Chambers and her hair was done by Jemma Esposito.
What a surprise I had when I woke up on the morning of Gemma and Scotts wedding! I remembered their theme which was spring time, but when I looked out of the window heavy snow was falling! I messaged Gemma to let her know that I would be making it even if I had to walk and not to worry!
Upon arriving to the house in the thick snow, I saw two ladies I love working with, Kim Kingston (The Beauty Shed who was making all the ladies more beautiful with her make up skills http://www.
And Jazz Dawson who was making their hair look all lovely and making sure it stayed in against the elements (https://www.
We all headed off the the beautiful Catherington Church (https://allsaintsandstjames.
Where the ceremony was to be held and then onto Old Thorns (https://www.oldthorns.com) for the reception.
The men wore suits by Andrew Mcdowells and the naked cake was by Pastry Corner in Netley
Gemma and Scotts fears were settled by by my excitement on how stunning the photos would be! I cannot wait to shoot in the snow again!
