Congratulations Mr & Mrs Butler! Hartsfield Manor – 25th November 2017

The 25th November dawned a beautiful day, it was Sam & Andy’s wedding and the sun was shining!  I set off deep into the Surrey Hills to Betchworth – the location of the stunning Hartsfield Manor which was to be the days venue…

Bride to be Sam was getting ready with her bridal party in one of the beautiful suits overlooking the gorgeous countryside.  Calm and smiling Sam was having the finishing touches made to her hair by Rebecca’s Hair Designs and make up by the lovely ‘Make up by Charlotte‘.

Sam had chosen a stunning colour scheme of royal blue for her lovely bridesmaids who all looked breathtaking!  Beautiful flowers were provided by Senses Floral Designer.

For the last-minute touches Sam’s Mother, Father, ‘Man of honour’ Gareth and little son Kai joined the bridal party – so touching to see these special family moments.  Sam’s dress was ‘Charlize‘ by Viva Bride

Leaving Sam to have a few minutes of peace before the ceremony I caught up with Andy and the guests eagerly awaiting downstairs.   Maxine (Sam’s daughter) was Andy’s ‘Best Lady’.

On the stroke of 2pm Sam made her grand entrance down the gorgeous wooden staircase into the ceremony with her father, ‘man of honour’ Gareth, bridesmaids and Page Boy Kai.

The celebrants conducted a beautiful ceremony which included a lovely reading by Sam’s sister and stunning rings presented by Sam’s daughter Maxine.

Sealed with a kiss Andy & Sam officially became Mr & Mrs Butler and the happy couple and their guests braved the very chilly temperatures outside for some lovely group photos.

While the guests headed back in to warm up with some lovely ‘pimped Prosecco’ we had a little ‘Bride and Groom’ shoot…

Back inside guests were warming up ready for the wedding breakfast with some Polaroid camera fun!

Sam’s ‘Glitz and Glamour’ theme was in full effect at the wedding breakfast, beautiful crystal centre pieces and royal blue sparkly touches really making the room twinkle!

The speeches were hilarious and the lovely little shots rounded these off perfectly!

After the speeches guests headed to the dance floor where some impressive shapes were bust!

It was finally time to cut the stunning cake and Mr & Mrs Butler took to the dance floor for their 1st dance as husband and wife.

I’d like to thank Sam, Andy and their guests for allowing me to capture their big day, I had the most amazing time and hope they treasure these memories for years to come!

How a family photoshoot can boost your child’s self esteem!

One of the hidden but powerful aspects of family photography that parents and (some) photographers rarely consider is how it can help us raise children with more confidence in their own worth and abilities.

But how can family photography, specifically family portraits, help boost a child’s self-esteem?  

I think it is really important to capture a family as a family unit.  It’s important the children see themselves as a major and important part of the family group and a family photoshoot is a great way to reinforce this.  My job as the photographer is to capture this family bond and the love and security your children feel as a snapshot in time.   (more…)

Exciting new Studio Sundays at the beautiful Wetlands Centre!

For many years now I’ve held studio sessions from my home and have loved welcoming so many lovely families along.  Over the past year Early Moments Photography had really grown and I simply need more space!

I’m thrilled to announce my new Studio Sundays pop-up studio! Located within the Prime Acrobatics building (which is part of the stunning Wetlands Centre in Horsell), my pop-up studio will run on selected Sundays throughout the year.

I’ve a fab new online booking system too!

Prime Acrobatics is a wonderful base.  The studio gives me room for much larger groups and families so I can cater for far more shoot requests.  On site there is free parking, disabled access, baby change, kitchen for warming baby food and the most wonderful ‘Waters Edge’ cafe – perfect for a pre- or post- shoot treat!

Just outside the studio are the stunning wetlands, perfect for an adventure with your little ones should you wish to extend your visit.  I also offer natural light sessions at the Wetlands and am very happy to be calling this beautiful location my new home!

If you have any questions or would like to book, contact me anytime!
