Abi & Andrew's Bartley Lodge Wedding - Sneak Peeks

I want to start off by saying that I don’t usually blog sneak peeks but I’m actually going to start this year. I’ve always thought I would wait until the end and yes, you do get new favourites as you work through the shots but the sneak peeks are often the ones that grab you when you first look through. I haven’t even looked through my second shooters shots from the day and I’m sure there will be some gorgeous groom prep shots in there. But I wanted to get these guys some sneak peeks over as they were so excited to seem them so here we are. Oops. That was a bit of a ramble. Moving on!

Abi & Andrew got married at Bartley Lodge Hotel on the edge of The New Forest on Saturday and WOW! The weather was absolutely stunning. When I met with Abi to discuss the final wedding plans she was adamant that it wasn’t going to rain. Being a February wedding I tried to encourage her to plan for it but no, she said it hadnt rained on 23rd February in 10 years (thats some research!) and that it won’t rain on her day. So when I turned up for bridal prep she was full of “I told you so!”.
Abi was the epitome of a happy bride, she was practically bursting to marry Andrew! We all had a little dance (to not entirely appropriate wedding songs - my fault, my playlist!) as we were waiting in the bridal suite before her interview with the registrars.
The ceremony was perfect and Abi perfectly forgot her words as she was too busy looking at Andy to even listen to what she was meant to be saying. Apparently typically her and it raised a few laughs.
The grounds of Bartley Lodge provided a lovely sunny backdrop for wedding photos and I’m just so thrilled that this lovely couple got the day they deserved.

Thanks for having me Mr & Mrs Brown and Congratulations!

Bluebell Shoots 2019

Every year I head to the glorious bluebells woods that is Micheldever just passed Winchester. It never disappoints. It really is a sight to behold.

I am releasing my dates slightly earlier than normal this year as my wedding bookings will take me away from the woods!

Those dates are Sunday 21st April, Saturday 27th April and Saturday 4th May.

Sessions are 30 minutes long. All images are edited and provide in web size (for sharing on Facebook/Instagram) and high res, for printing.


Session fee + 3 digital images - £100
An extra 10 digital images will cost an additional £100
Or to have all of the digital images (around 40) is an additional £150

So you can either pay a minimum of £100 in total or £250. The choice is yours. Easy.

I look forward to seeing you!

How to book…

A £25 deposit protects your 30 minute slot. The final £75 is due the day before the shoot. Within 2 weeks you will be sent your full gallery for you to select the 3 images that are included. Should you wish to purchase more, you can do so at this time.
All payments are made online by bank transfer. To book in I require your name, email address and mobile number.

If the session has to be cancelled due to heavy rain, we will work hard to find another convenient date. The same applies if your little one is poorly.

Preservation & Respect

Bluebells are protected and as such allowing our little people to pick them is big no no. We will find natural clearings and tree stumps for your child to sit or stand for photos. The bluebell woods are so stunning and we need to make sure we don’t damage their environment and stop their seeds from dropping so our kids can enjoy the woods for years to come.
