Simon & Ollie - The Petersham Hotel

Simon and Ollie celebrated their Civil Partnership in the beautiful hills of Richmond in Surrey. The venue was the idyllic Petersham hotel which is just a stones throw from where Turner had famously painted many years ago, and naturally provided stunning views of the River Thames which was quite simply a dream to capture!

A small intimate ceremony with very close friends and family was held in the 'River Room’ followed by some drinks upon the roof terrace-made all the more glorious with the September sunshine beating down from above. A delicious wedding breakfast followed by a couple of informal yet heartfelt speeches was all that was needed to get the party started, before guests took a short walk down to the riverbank to board a boat to continue the celebrations on a private river cruise.

As the sun was setting guests enjoyed breathtaking views of Londons’ riverbank and enjoyed taking in the sights of iconic London landmarks including the Shard and the London Eye, and as darkness commenced so did some serious dancing!

Here are a few of my favourites from the day…

Fraser & Ria - Destination Wedding

Ria and Fraser's wedding in Sicily was one of my wedding highlights of last summer. Set in the beautiful town of Taormina in Sicily, the ceremony was held in a rustic Italian town hall at the top of the traditional 'old town' and featured a family friend's young daughter who charmed the guests by playing classical harp as the bride entered the beautiful venue.

After the ceremony the newlyweds took a traditional walk down the Corso D,Umberto...Ria wowed onlookers with the shocking pink surprise lining of her stunning white wedding dress, whilst Fraser paid homage to his Scottish heritage and braved his full family tartan in the blistering heat (much to the amusement of the locals as clearly many of them had never seen a man in a kilt before!!)

The reception venue was truly sensational and was celebrated with a fantastic group of close family and friends on the pebble lined coast of Isola Bella. A full five-course dinner was served on a decked area with incredible natural light, the sound of the waves crashing in the background and the dramatic hills of Taormina in full view. I loved every moment of capturing Ria and Fraser's wedding day and is certainly one I will cherish for years to come!
