Zoe + Charlie // The Slaughters Manor House // Gloucester

Hey there stranger! We've not blogged in a while (sorry) so it's great to be able to share this light filled intimate winter wedding with you all. This was one of the smallest weddings we've ever shot (I think), yet full to the brim with so many lovely moments.

Zoe and Charlie got married at the delightful Slaughters Manor House in Gloucester surrounded by their two beautiful children and their immediate family and dearest friends. Everyone was nestled in the front room on comfy sofas and chairs and watched with tear filled eyes as they tied the knot, helped by their two children who had the honourable tasks of walking Zoe down the isle, handing the rings over and also a reading. We definitely had something in our eye. 

Although it was chilly, the light was absolutely glorious. Champagne was quaffed outside and we took a short stroll around the grounds to get some beautiful photos of Zoe and Charlie. Possibly the quickest couple shoot we've ever done (it was very cold!) but with that light and such wonderful grounds, we didn't need long. The afternoon was topped off with delicious lunch before more guests arriving to celebrate with them over the evening. How perfect.

We loved every second of this wedding, the intimacy of it, the location, the light. It was beautiful. 

WE ARE // THE CLARKES - 1 SECOND EVERYDAY 2016

Here it is folks! Our annual 1 Second Everyday video. You may have already seen this over on our Facebook page but we wanted to blog it too.

If you know us, or have ever met us, you've probably had your ear chewed off about this and have more than likely featured in one or two.

This is our 4th year of completing this awesome project, it's a challenge but we love doing it. If we haven't already bullied you into doing it yet too, then you really probably should. It's a such a marvellous reminder of all the things we did throughout the year, all the daft things, the amazing friends and family we hung out with and also in our case, the amount of food and drink we consumed, usually on the sofa watching a film, with the cats.

Our personal highlights include dancing Santa Anna, hand-chopping Simon, our travels in New Zealand, face-swap, remote shaver, TITS, allllll the food, beautiful babies and our incredible friends and families. Thank you SO much if you were a part of this, you really did make our year. We hope you enjoy this small window into our lives and enjoy watching it!

Kirstin +Mark // Shustoke Farm Barns // Warwickshire

The gorgeous Kirstin and Mark got hitched earlier this summer at the fantastic Shustoke Farm Barns in Warwickshire. We absolutely love shooting there. 

Kirstin and Mark live in Australia so it was an extra special day catching up with all the friends and family that they don't get to see as often as they'd like. Kirstin looked radiant in her Sophia Tolli dress and flawless make-up by the talented Chloe McCall, with her hair coiffed perfectly by the lovely Helena Sinclair. Mark and his boys looked super smart in their navy blue suits and we loved the best man's 'This Is Your Life' style speech. 

We had a glorious day hanging out with Kirstin and Mark, and we;re so happy to have been a part of it. Here are a few of our favourites from the day.
