New York – trip of a lifetime!

In December Mr C and I took a trip to NEW YORK, NEW YORK! Neither of us had been before and it’s always been high on our list of places to visit. The city that never sleeps definitely didn’t disappoint, the streets were filled with Christmas decorations making it all the more magical.

We even had snow on our final day, New York, at Christmas, covered in snow – I can die happy now! We’re already talking about our next trip, but for now – here’s a few favourite photos…

Ria + Jason // Italian inspired wedding at Dodmoor House

“AHHH WE LOVE OUR PICTURES!! Thank you so much Clare! What a fantastic surprise last night! We ended up sitting up until 1am looking through them and drinking fizz!”

From start to finish Ria and Jason’s wedding day was a stylish yet intimate, fun and love filled day. It really was a family affair, with gorgeous hand made touches throughout telling their story.

The olive trees from where Jason proposed featured in the beautiful invites – hand painted by their talented bunch of artist friends. Olive trees lined the aisle of the village church where they exchanged their vows and covered their wedding venue at Dodmoor House. Intricate hoops handmade by the family hung from the converted barn where they sat down to a true Italian feast.

These two are hands down the cutest couple ever, the look on Jason’s face as he stood next to Ria at the top of the aisle says it all – Ria absolutely shone in her lace Pronovias gown.

I was lucky enough to meet this awesome couple for the first time at Gina & Tom’s wedding a few years ago, I’m luckier still to get to see this amazing gang of friends once again this year when I photograph Anna & Kingman’s wedding this August!!

Dilys + Alex // Scraptoft Hill Farm Woodland Wedding

This magical countryside outdoor wedding ceremony took place in the woods at Scraptoft Hill Farm in Leicestershire. Dilys and the bridal party made their entrance stepping through the woodland, complete with flower girls dressed as fairies.

Gorgeous decorations, handmade bunting and lanterns hung around the woods – all painstakingly hung by the wedding party the day before. Alex and Dilys made their heart-warming wedding vows in front of their family and friends followed by a naming ceremony for their baby boy, Magnus.

“Clare, and her second shooter Lara, photographed our wedding in September 2017, and the photographs were far beyond our expectations. Clare didn’t just capture the day’s events – she captured the emotion, the atmosphere, and all those special, intimate moments that mean so much – and we hardly knew she was there. Clare is a magician with a camera! Hiring Clare was one of the best decisions we made.”

Aaron + Courtnee // Outdoor Surrey wedding

“Words are not enough Clare! Thank you feels so empty for what a ridiculous job you’ve done. We relived the whole day and remembered little bits we’d forgotten. You captured everything perfectly, us laughing our heads off and everyone having a blast, and us just the happiest we’ve ever been. The photos are better than we hoped and there are SO many of them I’M SO FREAKIN HAPPY! You guys absolutely smashed it, you were everywhere and nowhere all at once. A fly on the wall and yet totally involved. You listened to us the whole way and my god I can’t thank you enough for the group shots (the big one!! You did it!!) I know they aren’t your style but I’m so grateful we have them. The groomsmen shots are hilarious! Some really beautiful photos of us and all of our favourite people. Thank you so much Clare we’ll treasure all of your incredible work forever. Genuinely didn’t think we’d ever relive it all the way we have this evening. Perfect.”

From the first moment we first spoke about their wedding, it was clear Aaron + Courtnee’s day was going to be fun filled surrounded by their friends and family.

Their wedding day began with a small intimate legal ceremony, the happy tears started here and didn’t stop for the rest of the day! Their main ceremony took place at Westmead Events in Redhill, Surrey – a stunning outdoor venue. It was a beautiful and heartfelt outdoor humanist ceremony, with the grooms party looking sharp in their tweed and the  bridesmaids beautiful in mauve and mint dresses.

It truly was a gorgeously personal wedding, from an acoustic set performed by friends, a Hungry Caterpillar cake, origami decorations hand made by friends and family, Oh! and a Marachi band arranged as a surprise by Aaron’s brother.

It was an amazing day, we dodged the rain, the thunder,  even a hail storm and celebrated in the sun! ⠀
