Back in June I shot Jonny and Jay’s fantastic Country Tipi’s wedding at Vanstone Park venue.

I had a great morning with the girls capturing their bridal prep, and particularly loved the South African trinkets around the house. With a South African theme part of Jay’s heritage I couldn’t resist doing a bit of a different ring shot using an elephant ornament.

The pair were married at Jay’s old school, St George’s in Harpenden. After a beautiful ceremony in the chapel there, we headed towards the reception venue at Country Tipi’s Vanstone Park venue, with Jonny & Jay in a beautiful vintage car. We stopped en route down the country lanes to take some time out and get some portraits in an area we had scouted previously.

I love incorporating nature wherever possible in my wedding days and I truly love the shots we got in the woods near Codicote.

I’ve shot at Country Tipi’s before and worked with them on a styled shoot so was really looking forward to being back at the venue. The tipis looked amazing and the grounds have been sculptured since I was last there.


To keep with the South African theme there were super cute little safari animal favours on the tables.

The day went absolutely beautifully and I wanted to stay and party at the end of the night – the dancefloor was heaving!
