Hello, My name is Lucy, I am a wife, mum and portrait and wedding photographer. My photography is about more than mementos of a portrait session or wedding day, it is emotion, soul, life, love and light. To me, it is not just about capturing how someone looks but how they feel, who they are at that point in time. My job as your photographer is to capture beautiful images, images that will not only serve as bespoke art for your home, gorgeous gifts for loved ones but as vibrant, happy memories that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Hipstamatic Day

Phew... stop the world, just for a minute.. things have been BUSY! - which is fabulously wonderful, of course but I needed a little time to blow off the cobwebs today. Ella and I decided a long bike ride was the thing to do. It was a beautiful, blustery, sunny, cloudy sort of day today so a camera was a must, just not my usual monster of a camera as it was too bulky for a picnic bike ride... here's some images taken on my phone using hipstamatic... we had a giggle, a whinge at the gale force wind, saw what we think were about a million ladybirds and those cobwebs have well and truly been blown away :)

Major House Refurb.

No. Not the new house, not yet. This is a house belonging to a certain Ms B. Doll. Ella and I have been talking about this refurb for some time. Ella got a lovely dolls house for Christmas three years ago but it's starting to look tired and well, it's just not cool for a 7 year old to have a house like this... apparently. So... inspired by my new copy of Mollie Makes full of beautiful ideas and photography we decided last weekend was just right for the renovation. Now, Barbie is a pretty stylish girl but what's with all the fuchsia and glitter!? not cool. So we set to work, here's the before...

We went to HobbyCraft and bought some supplies but most of the things are made from bits and pieces we had lying around. Ella made some artwork and then she got a bit bored so I carried on. The thing is I can't do things by halves, I just can't and inside I'm just a big kid wanting to make a mess and have fun. Here is our summer holiday project and Barbie's beautiful new pad...

Emily & Greg's Big Day

Well before I tell you about the marvellous day that was Emily and Greg's Wedding Day I will just explain about some little changes. I used to keep a seperate wedding blog which you can still see here... but from now on all weddings will be shared on here.

Back to Emily and Greg... I was super excited about photographing this day as I knew it promised to be something really special. Emily and Greg live in the beautiful little village of Napton on the Hill and they are very active members of the community there, Greg organised this years Napton Festival which sadly I missed due to our holiday but I hear it was a resounding success. The entire wedding, ceremony and reception all took place in their beloved village. Emily and Greg had put so much attention to detail in every little bit of the day, from the incredible horse and carriage to the unusual cheese-cake (no, not lemon marscapone but a tower of different cheeses - yum). Whenever I ask a bride who she has chosen to do her flowers, if the reply is 'Suzanne Evetts' I always give a little shriek of joy because I know without question that the flowers will be stunning and they absolutely were.

After the ceremony the celebrations continued at Napton Village Hall with moving speeches from the Groom, the Bride and her father and a warm and rather hilarious speech from David, Greg's best man. The atmosphere was relaxed and the sun was shining and Emily and Greg danced their first dance as a married couple in the evening sunshine with live music by 'Ben & Peggy'. Shortly after 'Rack and Ruin' stepped up the beat and everyone danced a Ceilidh as the sun was setting.

Well, there's nothing more for it but to show you the images, here they are....

New Addition to the Woodrow Family!

Here he is... meet Ralph. We picked him up today and he is bloomin' gorgeous and so calm and quiet (hopefully not too much yelping tonight but we'll see). Ralph is a Labradoodle and whilst he doesn't look it now he will have curly/ shaggy hair when he's older. Ohh he's lovely and feel like part of the family already... here he is...

After the Rain

Such a sweet and affectionate brother and sister who genuinely get on well together (they could give my two a few pointers). We got about ten minutes in to this portrait session and the heavens opened. It was really quite dramatic actually. We hid in the old wooden cattle shed for five minutes and then A (J's big sister) said a little prayer/ wish and the INSTANT she asked for sunshine I watched her face as she opened her eyes and there it was... magic. The rain had stopped and we carried on with the shoot. I am going to have to learn that little trick, very handy x

Susan & Andy

I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the wedding of Susan and Andy later this year. Susan and Andy have only known each other for about a year, but in Susan's words 'it feels like we have known each other forever'. Now, I have to say that this couple are not only lovely but really natural in front of the camera... they are just meant to be together, that's the long and short of it... isn't destiny wonderful?

Emily & Greg

Oh I LOVED, loved, loved this pre-wedding shoot in Napton. The weather was looking distinctly 'iffy' beforehand but as soon as Emily and Greg arrived, the sun came out and it really was glorious. Such a nice couple and I am so excited about capturing their big day in a couple of weeks, it sounds like it is going to be incredible... watch this space...

Halcyon Days

This is a large blog post but I just couldn't resist. I mean, come on... how cute are these two sisters?! There were a couple of changes of clothes on this shoot but there were such different looks from an hour and a half together so I couldn't simply post one or two. Aside from how cute these two are, they made me laugh SO much, they were utterly hilarious and we had a fabulous time indeed.
