Farnham Castle Wedding | Hannah & Andy | Lily Lane Photography
Hannah & Andy chose Farnham Castle for their wedding venue and it was absolutely beautiful! The castle was full of lots of different quirks from modern to historical, all tying together and working perfectly.
Farnham Castle is gorgeous medieval castle in the heart of Surrey, it's over 900 years over and was once holiday accommodation for kings and queens! It's only one of very few great houses left in England, making it's unique beauty even more! Farnham Castle is situated over 5 acres of glorious gardens and manicured lawns, perfect for portraits.
On the morning of Hannah & Andy's wedding, I met with the girls who got ready onsite in the gatehouse. The morning was full everyone buzzing around having their hair and make up done, it was full of so much laughter and excitement! The men arrived to Farnham Castle couple of hours before to help finish decorating the ceremony room and then joined their guests in the bar, accompanied with a drink calm their nerves!
All the rooms throughout Farnham Castle are uniquely different to each other; the ceremony room being more contemporary and bright and the reception room full of historic paintings and decor. Hannah & Andy opted for ivory florals with sprays of lush greenery which flowed throughout their ceremony room and covered their wedding breakfast tables.
I LOVED Hannah & Andy's wedding! I hope to return to Farnham Castle again soon for more weddings!
The Great Fosters Hotel Egham Wedding | Hollie & Tommy | Lily Lane Photography
The Great Fosters Hotel in Egham, Surrey is honestly one of the most beautiful venues i've ever seen. It has a mix of historic decor, antique furniture with a contemporary twang (is that even a word?!) but really it is gorgeous!
In the morning the girls got ready in the bridal suite which is directly facing the driveway, so all morning you'd hear bursts of excitements as the bridesmaids would watch the guests arrive. The whole morning was full of lots of make up - which was done by a fabulous local hair & make up artist, Melissa Oldridge
The great fosters hotel ceremony room is unreal, with tonnes of natural light flowing in through the windows and colourful florals flowing throughout.
After their ceremony everyone joined in the courtyards where they drank, laughed and ate ice cream! Yep, ice cream! Hollie & Tommy hired an artisan rolled ice cream truck, perfect for a summer wedding! Here's the link to the ice cream company that Hollie & Tommy used: frewandco.com
Onto the evening! After speeches, plenty of food and prosecco it was time to party!! The night kicked off with dancing, photos booths and cake - all the three things you need for an amazing wedding reception!
I LOVED Hollie & Tommy's wedding and I can't wait to return to The Great Fosters Hotel for another beautiful wedding <3
Thank you to my amazing second photography Natalia Paulina Photography!

Milling Barn Wedding, Bluntswood Hall Buntingford Wedding Photography | Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer | Lily Lane Photography
Millingbarn, Buntingford is absolutely beautiful! These two tied the knot there during December last year; there day was full of winter, sparkles and lots of bubbles!
The girls got ready on site at Milling Barn in the bridal suite. Charlotte chose to have 9 bridesmaids, so as you can imagine the whole morning was full of tonnes of hair and make up!
The girls went for a silver slip dress with a sparkley over jacket to complete their beautiful wintery look. Charlotte wore a stunning long sleeve, low back, snow white dress, which fit her perfectly! Jarad and his groomsmen stayed with the wintery style and chose burgundy ties with prussian blue suits - they all looked very dapper!
Scroll down for Charlotte & Jarad's wedding photos..
"Milling Barn is a beautiful barn wedding venue in Hertfordshire, located near the rural village of Throcking, close to Royston. Milling Barn is a stunning wedding venue in the rolling Hertfordshire countryside set around a wonderful 17th Century oak barn.
This romantic and spacious barn incorporates the traditional character of a breathtaking 17th Century barn, alongside the rustic charm of the old farmyard.
The impressive traditional barn is a magical setting for weddings, with its high ceilings, and exposed beams, Milling Barn has a rustic feel and period charm which lends itself perfectly to both your ceremony and wedding breakfast.
Spacious and sophisticated, the Barn is truly beautiful and a breathtaking place to celebrate your special day. The Barn is illuminated with soft lighting which further highlights the original timber framework and beams, and gives a special glow that complements the natural daylight which floods in through the windows. By night, the lights are dimmed and the Barn’s atmosphere changes to provide the perfect backdrop for dining, drinking, dancing and celebrating your big day. The garden and patio provide the perfect space to relax outdoors once the formalities have been completed.
Milling Barn also offers a number of outdoor ceremony options, including the Middle Garden and Blunts Wood. The woodland is an enchanting and unique position for brides and grooms to exchange their vows as it’s totally secluded in a natural clearing within the trees.
There are an endless array of photo opportunities in the well-tended gardens, throughout the farm, and woodlands."
Hitchin Lavender Fields, Hertfordshire | Candice & Seb
I met up with Candice & Seb at Hitchin Lavender Fields in the summer of last year for their engagement shoot! I had alwayyysss wanted to photographer there, it's the most naturally beautiful place i've ever seen!

If you're thinking of something to do this summer, visit Hitchin Lavender Fields in Hertfordshire and cut some Lavender to take home with you!
Bedinghams Farm, The Gault, Sutton | CAMBRIDGESHIRE WEDDING | Hannah & Ben
Where do I start?! These two got married last September at 11am! Which of course meant they had plenty of time for the rest of the day to fit in food, games, dancing and more food at the awesome venue Bedinghams Farm, The Gault, Sutton, Cambridgeshire.
The day started off at a beautiful cottage in Ely, where the girls preparations took place - I've never seen a dining table so full of make up before! We set off at 10.30am to make our way to their ceremony at their local church
Hannah had the most fabulous tartan print shoes which match all of the boys waist coats! They were all intricately hand made by a family friend to make sure all of the patterns and style matched perfectly. The girls all wore blush pink and each of them chose a different style dress to suit them each individually; and keeping in with the style, the boys matched their blush pink ties perfectly!
When we were at Bedinghams Farm, these two kept their guests on their feet by surprising everyone with a Ceilidh dancing class!! It was so amazing, everyone was up dancing and giving it their best!
Thank you Hannah & Ben for letting me photograph your wedding day!

THE CONSERVATORY AT PAINSHILL PARK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | HEMEL HEMPSTEAD HERTFORDSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
I LOVED LOVED LOVEEDDDD HAYLEY & PETERS WEDDING! The whole day was just so effortlessly beautiful with not one detail left unfinished.
Before we set off to Painshill Park, I met with Hayley and her girls in morning at her parents house, there was lots of busy last minute preparations and final make up touches going on so I tried to stay out of the way the best I could (but still of course capture all of this at the same time!).
Hayley's dress.. woweeee, it was amazing. It was so elegant and classy, with off the shoulder silk straps and a figure hugging waist which fit her perfectly. Hayley topped off her final look with a hand made head piece made by a designer in spain!
All of the bridesmaids wore matching navy blue flowy dresses accompanied by bunches of white flowers and natural greenery.
I went onto the church to meet with the boys before the ceremony and get a few last minute nervous photos. I made my way into the church and found Peter looking super dapper in his 3 piece navy suit, along with his groomsmen in matching!
After the ceremony I followed Hayley & Peter in their London taxi to the reception at The Conservatory at Painshill Park.
Thankfully it was a lovely sunny day and all of their many guests mingled in the garden area where the Prosecco was flowing!
The evening began and oh my what a party it was! The dance floor did not empty and the shapes being thrown only got better towards the end of the night.. maybe it was the prosecco helped?!

Irchester Country Park, Northampton | Georgie & Gemma Engagement Photoshoot
I met with these two back in June last year. Usually June is pretty beautiful and sunny but OF COURSE we’re in England so it rained! Luckily enough we got through the session and escaped fairly dry!
