Back in July I headed down to Somerset (during the crazy heat wave) for a brilliant day at Jodie and Alex’s wedding at Brympton House! Brympton House weddings are stunning and their day was an absolute joy to be at and document. We were blessed with some dreamy evening light which left me well in my element!

Here are a few of my favourite Brympton House wedding photos! Sit back and enoy!

A couple of weeks ago I headed west to the amazing Elmore Court for David and Katie’s wedding! It was an absolutely awesome day and an absolute pleasure to be at and shoot!

David and Katie are such a lovely couple and couldn’t have made me any more welcome!

The amazing story about these guys is that their Dad’s are life-long best friends – so it really is proof your children do sometimes get married!

Here are a few of my favourite Elmore Court wedding photos! Such a brilliant day – thanks for having me along David and Katie!


 

I’ve just got back yesterday evening from Italy where I had the absolute pleasure of shooting Phil and Emily’s Tuscany destination wedding at Il Castagno! Il Castagno is an amazing place to get married and it was one incredible day (and weekend!). Italy really is the destination wedding dream – amazing food, stunning scenery, beautiful Tuscan architecture and those dreamy sunsets! I would recommend a Il Castagno wedding to anyone looking for a venue is Tuscany for sure.

Phil and Emily put a huge amount of time into planning their Il Castagno wedding and it totally paid off – with the best time for all their guests! The weather held off and they had a lovely outdoor ceremony on the lawn, before it was drinks and glorious Italian food (oh the food was SO good!). The four course wedding breakfast was a true feast in every way! The speeches were awesome and then the party was something else! Being a DJ (amongst many other talents he has!) Phil pre-mixed a corker of a party set which it’s safe to say got everyone well in the party mood! Definitely up there with the best I’ve ever experienced!

Phil and Emily were so good to work with and get to know! Emily looked so amazing (see photos below!) and Phil scrubbed up well too in his blue suit! Phil’s energy is pretty impressive too – I don’t think I’ve seen a groom so pumped all day (and night!). They were both so happy which made being theirIl Castagno wedding photographer a real treat! Thanks to all their friends and family too – it was great to hang out with you!

I thought I’d share a few photos that caught my eye – so sit back and enjoy these Il Castagno wedding photos.

Thanks Phil and Emily for having me along to your Il Castagno wedding – an absolute blast from start to finish – and a very memorable weekend all round! Enjoy your honeymoon!

If you’re getting married abroad I’d love to hear from you! I shoot a few destination weddings each year and would love to return to Il Castagno and Tuscany again before too long!

 

A look back at 2017!

So here’s my 2017 look back!

I won’t write loads here as I think the photos do the talking but it’s safe to say it was a brilliant year and one I will always remember fondly. Aside from getting to shoot in Santorini and Mexico (my furthest location to-date – thank you again Steph and Nick!!) it was a year of amazing wedding after amazing wedding! I met so many awesome people, witnessed so much love, heard the most incredible speeches (that made me laugh and cry in equal measure!!) and most of all I got to work with such a mighty fine set of couples who entrusted me with their wedding photos! I’m so grateful for each and every one of them and now it’s winter, and wedding season is over, I miss them all very much!

In the Autumn I was shortlisted for the finals of the National Wedding Industry Awards. These awards are based on actual feedback from those who have had me shoot their wedding.

I received full marks in half of the categories and 9.98/10 for the rest so I will take that as a pretty good good result!

I was blown away by some of the comments so I thought I’d share a few here!

“Jonny MP is a legend! When I asked my friend what she would’ve done differently about her wedding, she said she would’ve booked Jonny MP! So I contacted him, loved the sound of his ideas and ethos – & even changed the initial wedding date we had pencilled in so we could book him. We didn’t regret it – Jonny was fantastic, he fitted in with the wedding party & got to know everyone, my family actually wanted to adopt him! He caught some amazing moments and really captured the joy of the day.”

Alice & Tino, June 2017

” Jonny was fantastic!! His presence on the day was perfect, he felt like a member of the family and close friend, knowing all the bridal party and close friends by name and making everyone feel special. He got to know us before the event making us feel relaxed. His eye for capturing light, emotion and moments is outstanding. Jonny has a fantastic eye for detail and a talent capturing photographs that are imaginative, different and unique in such a beautiful and personal style.”

Rachel & Darren, August 2017

” Jonny was an absolute privilege to have as part of our wedding, although he came for his job, by the end of the evening he became more of a member of the party. Absolutely outstanding service from beginning to end, he made us feel comfortable and confident from the first to last photo he took. He is not only an unbelievable photographer, whose ability to capture every single moment is spot on and remarkable, but a genuine and professional man, who myself and Chris, family and friends adore!”

Emma & Chris, October 2017

“We can honestly say Jonny was one of the biggest parts of our day. From the minute he arrived, he was so well rehearsed and professional he knew all of my bridesmaids names, both mine and my husbands family too and other important guests. He is very friendly and laid back but captures the most incredibly photos that we will treasure forever. The quality of them are stunning, many people have told me they’re the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen. Would recommend him to everyone!”

Zoe & Brett, August 2017

On Friday and Saturday I had the honour of shooting Pam & David’s 2-day wedding in London! It was absolutely incredible experience and epic on every level. The many parts of a Sikh wedding provided so many great photo opportunities and was well worth the 5am wake up!

Pam and David are such amazing people and I felt like we’d been friends for years. I think I need a few days still to recover but for now here’s a little flavour!

Lots more to come but for now here are a few previews!
























What a summer!

This summer has been pretty incredible. 2017 has been my 3rd year as a full time photographer and in many ways my favourite. I am half still exhilarated from it all and half need a lying down! I’ve had so many awesome days with so many absolutely wonderful people! I’m so grateful I get to do what I do for a living and I’m glad that even though I’ve shot almost 200 weddings now I’m as hungry, and passionate, as ever about shooting wedding photos full of life, energy and emotion. Seeing the happiness my photos bring my couples makes my day.

I was looking back at some of the weddings from this summer last night and thought I’d share a few here. I have a quite a few weddings still to go this year but once done on 23rd December I will be posting my full epic, end of year, look back!

A HUGE thank you to all my couples from 2017! I love you all!










    

I’ve shot a few weddings at Northbrook Park in Surrey now and I really love it as a venue. Add the many virtues of Northbrook Park and a couple like Daisy and Jake and you have mighty fine combination!! Their wedding in October was brilliant in every way and it was an absolute pleasure to be there to document it.

Proceedings kicked off at Daisy’s parents house and there was much excitement as the girls got ready. I love the buzz in the morning – a real mixture of many emotions. We then headed to West Horsley for what was a really lovely, personal wedding ceremony. The church was packed and the atmosphere was full of joy and a lot of love for these guys as they became Mr and Mrs Clark!

With the sun out, making for a stunning Autumn day, the next stop was the reception at Northbrook Park in Surrey. The light was just stunning and it made for a great portrait session with Daisy and Jake before everyone enjoyed a fine wedding breakfast, some amazing speeches and an epic party to top it all off!

Daisy and Jake are a really special couple and it felt a real honour to shoot their day. They had such a great group of family and friends. I had a blast!  Thanks again for having me to your Northbrook Park wedding!

Now over to the photos! Enjoy!

 

 

I came away from Chris and Emma’s St Bart’s Brewery wedding feeling on a total high! How could I not after spending the day with such lovely people at St Bart’s Brewery in London! I can’t tell you how much I was made to feel so so welcome and so well looked after all day!

We kicked off at MalMaison – a very trendy hotel in London and then headed to St.Giles’s in The Field’s near Tottenham Court Road for a lovely service led by the awesome Peterson! I loved his selfie moment! We then jumped on classic London buses, laden with gin and sweets and went to the uber cool St.Bart’s Brewery in Smithfield Market for the rest of the day. So many awesome moments – the whole wedding was so upbeat, fun and happy! London weddings always have a cool edge to them that make them pretty unique!

Emma and Chris are super lovely people and were awesome to work with and I got to meet so many of their friends and family who allowed me to do shoot away happily and work in the relaxed, natural way I like to shoot weddings. It was a bonus also that Chris is a big fellow Spurs fan and his letter from the Spurs manager was so cool! This is definitely something I’d love at my wedding!

Thanks Chris and Emma for having me along to your St Bart’s Brewery wedding! Hope you enjoy these previews!

If you’re getting married at St Bart’s Brewery and are looking for a London wedding photographer do get in touch! I’d love to hear from you.






Tilly and Harry are a beautiful pair and their DIY garden wedding was an absolute joy to be at! Tilly’s smile is infectious, her dress was out of this world and Harry is in an incredibly warm guy (and looked as proud as punch to be marrying the girl he met travelling several years back all day long!).

Tilly is a fellow professional photographer so it was extra special to shoot her day – and that little bit more pressure! Eeeek!

After being at their wedding I couldn’t help but wish my grandma had had a house quite a grand as Tilly’s grandma’s that was able to host a garden wedding with almost 200 people with ease! We also benefitted from some perfect September weather – dry, sunny and a comfortable temperature. The ceremony was at nearby at Busbridge Church and then the rest of the day was a lovely garden set-up at Tilly’s grandma’s house in the Surrey Hills.

Tilly looked amazing in her dress and we were able to pop to a nearby heathland to capture their portraits (of which there are so many I love!)

I loved their DIY garden wedding. The details were beautiful and most of all I loved the relaxed, and down-to-earth, feel of the day. It was warm, genuine and incredibly happy!

Tilly and Harry – first and foremost thank you for having me along to your wedding! Wishing you many years of happiness as Mr and Mrs Nelson!

 

 

 

The awesome Sophie and Matt got married at the amazing Riverhill Himalayan Gardens in Sevenoaks in August! Having known Sophie, and her family for many years, and subsequently doing her older sister Kezzie’s wedding in 2013, it was awesome to to see lots of familiar faces again at this amazing Riverhill Himalayan Gardens Wedding where she married the devilishly handsome Matt!

The day started for me in Hildenborough, at Sophie’s parents house. There was a great level of excitement as Sophie and her super team of bridesmaids got ready. We had a great morning with Harriet Rainbow on make-up duties and Liz from Simply Beautiful Wedding Hair doing all things hair, before heading to Bessels Green Baptist for a lovely service led by Neil Durling (now of Tonbridge Baptist Church). During the signing of the register Sophie and Matt had some of their dance school perform to them from the balcony. There was not a dry eye in the house!

We spent the afternoon dodging a few showers but all was well come late afternoon and we were lucky enough to have a stunning sunset (which is me in my element!). Riverhill Himalayan Gardens is a stunning location on the side of hill with amazing views south across the Weald of Kent and provided the perfect setting for their reception. The details inside the marquee were amazing (see photos below!) – including an amazing set of wall art made up of circles that went behind the top table. I loved the ‘dance floor’ rules they had too. All these little things make a wedding!

This Riverhill Himalayan Gardens wedding was truly awesome all round and one I absolutely loved. I left with a big smile on my face after the most epic dancefloor action ever (again see evidence below!). I do love a good party to see out a wedding! The speeches brought out some awesome reactions from everyone and of course Sophie’s first dance (professional dancer after all!) was brilliant too!

Sophie and Matt did not stop smiling all day – it was clear to see how happy they were together! Sophie looked amazing in her dress from Isabella Grace Bridal. It was great to work with them both and their lively group of friends (hehe!).

Finally a little plug for Sophie – who has our own professional dance school! Check out her new studio in Sevenoaks if you have little ones who want to do all things performing arts!

Thanks again Sophie and Matt for having me to your Riverhill Himalayan Gardens Wedding! Here are some of the highlights!
