As we started to wind up 2017 we there were still more beautiful weddings and babies to be photographed – here’s a look at the last wedding and lifestyle photography of the year.
After a good few days of abysmal weather which sent the media asking ‘where’s the summer gone?’ we got lucky on our return to Gaynes Park with Sarah and Nathan, in particular with the stunning light in the evening resulting in this gorgeous shot amongst the wildflowers…

Sarah and Nathan were one of many couples who now book us 18 months in advance, and whilst we normally give prospective clients a period of deliberation, we will always remember Sarah clearly stating she was ready to book by the end of our meeting! It was lovely to catch up with them again a few months ago, revisiting the beautiful Hatfield Forest* on what was the most gloriously sunny day. Many couples think bluebells when they want pretty colours and flowers, but many don’t think about buttercups, and the pictures below will show you the absolutely glorious sight of thousands of buttercups! We love how Sarah’s pink dress also stands out!
We revisit Gaynes Park with these two tomorrow, and we are so pleased for them that their big day is finally here!
*Photographers/couples note! Since we posted this shoot a representative of the National Trust has advised us that Hatfield Forest, despite no guidance on its website, is restricted for photography under National Trust rules like many of their paid entry properties. So if you want to shoot there you will need to contact them for a licence.
Jess and Chris happen to live near a beautiful lake in Essex, Connaught Water, which they love to walk around so it was a perfect choice for their pre wedding shoot. Bringing along the gorgeous family dog Teddy, we had an early evening stroll around the lake. These two clearly have fun together and are very relaxed in each other’s company, despite being a bit nervous about being photographed. Having a cute dog around can be a great distraction (as well as ice cream!) We’re very much looking forward to celebrating with them tomorrow at their South Farm wedding, and hopefully recreate some of these gorgeous waterside moments at the reservoir!

A popular Essex wedding venue, we finally got the opportunity to shoot a Gaynes Park wedding with the lovely Sam and Martin. These two were super relaxed and it really echoed throughout the whole day. We seem to be on a roll this summer for sunsets, and this wedding was no exception…
