St Giles House in Dorset, England, is a family house of Lord Shaftesbury. It has recently underwent the award-winning 5-year long restoration and welcomes weddings and private events. Over the years the house has been a home to important politicians and philosophers. Couples who choose to marry here will find themselves in a truly stunning setting full of history, surrounded by old master paintings, grand fireplaces, beautiful old library and several ballrooms. Despite being grand in scale, the house has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The grounds surrounding the property are full of things to explore - from beautiful gardens to the 18th Century Shell Grotto that is gorgeous to photograph.Read More
Truth is, all I really need, is pair in love, warm afternoon light, the open field with tall golden grass, and the world seems to be a perfect bliss. Today I would like to share the sweetest little engagement session I photographed for Nicole & Danny in Hyde Park - London’s oasis where the mother nature truly shows off her magic.
These two light up together, they are pure, and lovely and true, and as they prepare for their wedding next week, I am full of anticipation to photograph them again.Read More
If you grew up on Jane Austen's novels or at the mention of the 18th century England your imagination conjures up images of sprawling elegant Mansions and long dinner tables set in candle-lit rooms, this styled shoot will be up your alley.
The shoot was part of a two-day worksop held at the Nonsuch Mansion and filled with inspiration and beauty. The Ladies of the Wedding Blues Agency partnered up with WedHead Decor, gathered gorgeous flowers from Okishima Simmonds , dresses from Cathytelle and planned two wonderful days of learning and shooting under the direction of inimitably talented, inspiring and skilful Megan Sadler. Sara Russell, founder of my favourite wedding inspiration blog Wedding Sparrow, shared her knowledge of the industry, talked about details that make winning submission and her curation process. We learned from Megan about directing, composition, colour and editing. Megan seemed completely open about her workflow, gave us in-depth answers, revealing her shooting and editing tricks. I left feeling energised by her positive outlook, her creative spirit and commitment to our beloved medium.

Today I am happy to share images from a shoot I have done back in April with beautiful Lauren, make-up and hair artist Vickie Ellis and stylist Aisha. I did this shoot because I needed some inspiration ahead of the wedding season. I wanted to bring interesting ideas to my clients and explore natural and simple elements that can be incorporated into a portrait session or a bridal shoot. I believe that the most beautiful ideas come from nature and I have reached deep into my portfolio for images that incorporate warm floral hues and natural tones. Paired with the portraits, they highlight Lauren's beauty and make for simple, natural and minimal aesthetic. I hope you like them and would love to know what you think.Read More

The golden afternoon sun shines warmly as Chris is waiting for his Bride to join him in the beautiful garden on his family’s Lake House. Serious goose bumps and misty eyes afflict all guests as striking and slender bride is led down the aisle by her Father. Sounds or harp are intertwined with the sounds of the Lake in a beautiful melody that accompanies their very special Orthodox ceremony.
I was a second photographer at Chris and Galina’s wedding and all images are shot on by beloved Fuji 400 filmRead More

5 girls traveling to Miami Beach for a Bachelorette Party? You bet this will be a weekend to remember!
We could not have asked for a better time weather-wise – gentle ocean, sunshine each day and those perfect warm nights meant for a barefoot walk back to the hotel, heels-in-hands, after a night of dancing. We sampled delicious Cuban flavors in the beachside cafes, spent afternoons sun tanning, enjoyed elaborate Lincoln Street cuisine, drank martinis and danced the nights away in “Miami-vice- inspired” red-velvet-ropes clubs only to wake up just before noon to the sound of the waves and start all over again. Five girls in Miami means quality hours of uninterrupted girl talk, delicious margaritas and hard work on that tan.Read More
