I know that Christmas is just around the corner and I should really be sharing some festive season weddings, but I couldn’t resist sharing these with you…

Looking through my portfolio a couple of days ago with one of my client I found this beautiful wedding I shot last summer at Monkey Island near High Wycombe, London.

Laura & Oli’s wedding was an amazing day that was great fun to shoot! It was filled with sunshine, laughter and of course love… Taking photos of the bride’s preparation was a real treat Laura’s beautiful feathered dress was from Pronovias, the home of gorgeous wedding gowns looked amazing as did  Oli’s traditional uniform.

The colours for their wedding day were purple and sage green and the combination of these two colours beautifully complimented the stunning setting of Monkey Island hotel , an elegant mansion located near Maidenhead, only 7 miles from Windsor Castle. It was a perfect setting for all the guests travelling from London for the big day.

The mix of Hydrengea and roses was the perfect look for a summer wedding and the bridal bouquet was one of my favourites!

Their civil marriage ceremony took place outside in the garden on a beautiful sunny day and the island created an amazing background for their wedding portraits!

It really was a perfect day! Hope you will enjoy looking at my photos as much as I enjoyed taking them 😉
