I’m a little late to the party on this one, but it’s that time of the year again when I actually post a wedding blog post. 2017 was immensely busy shooting weddings all the way up to the New Year. 2016 Ali clearly got a bit over excited in booking people in! You might have also noticed I’ve moved out of London and back to Somerset! I’ve just taken two months out at the start of the year to do some cycling in Mexico and now I’m back in action. 2018 weddings are go. So here we have my ‘better late than never’ favourites post from 2017. So many to choose from and a massive thank you to all my clients for consistently being kind, welcoming, awesome people. It you make it to the end of this post, you deserve a solid pat on the back. ENJOY.

It was a total delight to spend a weekend with Vanessa & Tom in Northern Portugal. I fell a little bit in love with the area and was reluctant to leave at the end of it. Vanessa, being a designer, styled the day beautifully. She did such a good job in fact that she has since launched an event design company! All the details were coated in warm Portuguese light which always helps. You can read more about their story and details from the wedding day over on Rock My Wedding’s blog post.

What a beautiful day for some wedding photography at Almonry Barn with Aline & Raj! The trees at this venue make the perfect backdrop for soft light and bokeh! And yes, Studio Farrows where the ‘getting ready’ was taking place has an old car in the living space. Because why not? I hope you like the photos below and let me know what you think!
