Emma & John’s Intimate Wedding in Hertford 

Emma & John came in to see me at the studio a couple of weeks before their wedding day. Straight away I knew I was about to work with the most laid back couple I’ve met. These two decided that they wanted an intimate wedding. Just a ceremony and a pub meal afterwards. (They’ve decided […]

The Things You Need The Morning Of Your Wedding (That You Won’t Find On Every List!)

It’s happened at pretty much every wedding. Everyone’s getting ready, things are going along smoothly, and then suddenly you realise, there’s something you forgot to pack.
