Josh and Sarah found their dream wedding venue and I was so happy to be picked as their photographer!  It was a great honour for me as both of them have worked in the wedding Industry for years and they know so many suppliers, so it really meant a lot to be chosen.  I also knew so many of their suppliers (and guests) as we have all worked in the same industry for so long.  Josh and Sarah have a really happy go lucky outlook on life and so I knew the wedding would be all about relaxing and having fun.  They didn't want loads of posed photos or anything too serious they were mainly after capturing the moment, which is what I specialise in.  I want to say a huge thank you to Josh and Sarah for making me feel so included on the day. I really loved every moment of your wedding day and I hope looking through this blog brings back some great memories for you. Superb flowers by Karen Harris, delicious cakes by Katie B and amazing piano playing by the awesome Mr Richard Sully.

The Vineyard at Stockcross Weddings https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2020/10/the-vineyard-at-stockcross-weddings  

Weddings at The Vineyard at Stockcross are always beautiful!  As one of my favourite wedding venues to work at I wanted to share a few photos from the venue from a couple of different weddings. I am proud to be a recommended supplier at this exclusive venue, I have worked here since around 2011 and have  photographed a party for the owners and photos for their website during this time.  The Vineyard and their sister hotel The Donnington Valley were one of the first venues to recommend me as they 'loved my natural style of photography'. It will always hold a special place in my heart and if you have ever eaten here I am sure it will for you also! I hope you enjoy looking through the photos.

The wedding of Aidan and Kaya at Ufton Court https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2020/5/the-wedding-of-aidan-and-kaya-at-ufton-court  

Aiden and Kaya were married at Ufton Court, a beautiful wedding venue full of historic charm, if you live locally you may have gone to visit it as a child. It is still an educational trust and all of the proceeds from weddings are put back into the charity.  A special thank you to everyone who helped to make this wedding so special, especially to Bramble Cottage flowers, Lissy Puig and Tesco's for their generous donations, I know Aiden and Kaya were hugely grateful.

Weddings at The Gherkin London wedding Photography https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2020/4/weddings-at-the-gherkin-london-wedding-photography The Gherkin London wedding venue is a wedding photographers perfect backdrop. Blaire and Neil were married at The Gherkin.  The wedding had a black tie theme which looked so striking in the wedding photos.  I know Blair and Neil personally and I was so happy they picked me to do their photos it was so lovely to see them get married, they have been together forever!  Blair looked absolutely amazing in a fitted mermaid style dress and the venue was incredible.  This was on the day of the Brexit protests in London, thankfuly I always like to allow more time than I need, so my two hours extra time to allow for contingencies was really needed, I ended up arriving exactly on time, thank goodness I am paranoid about traffic :) I hope you enjoy looking through the photos. 

An outfit change for the evening as Blair is a party animal and wanted to be comfy dancing. 

First dance... a picture can say a thousand words. 

This was one of my favourite moments ever at a wedding.  These are Blaire's elderly grandparents, they flew all the way from South Africa to come, lasted all day and then in the evening got up and went mad on the dance floor,  everyone was clapping and cheering. I will be happy if I have half their energy and spirit when I am that age! 

Congratulations Blair and Neil and thank you so much for choosing me.

The Wedding of Ashleigh and Ben https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2020/1/the-wedding-of-ashleigh-and-ben  

Wedding photography at The Great House at Sonning is amazing.  The decor is beautiful and it has a river and bridge out the back of the hotel that makes for some fabulous photos.  I hope you enjoy looking at the photos of Ashleigh and Ben's day, I have a very natural style of wedding photography and always think the photos should be a by-product of the day and not what the day is about.  Ashleigh and Ben really wanted to enjoy their wedding day and spend time with guests,  so we spent just 15 minutes doing the pictures of the two of them together, I always try and work quickly to give people natural style pictures of them together but also give them the time to mingle and create memories of the day, which are so often the best photos anyway.

Wedding Photography at Ufton Court Berkshire https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2019/6/wedding-photography-at-ufton-court-berkshire  

Like the majority of my weddings it was through a recommendation from friends Louise and Andrew that I met the lovely Kim and Ed. Kim got ready at The Swan at Streatley then it was over to the simply stunning Bradfield College Chapel for the ceremony. It is very unusual to be able to have your wedding ceremony at the chapel as it is reserved for former pupils of the college so this is only the second time I have ever had the opportunity to photograph there and it is absolutely breathtaking inside.

During the consultation I mentioned photos look beautiful with trees and when I got to the house on the day they had planted trees all around the garden, I knew it was going to be a spectacular wedding from that moment on.  Sophie's mum keeps her house immaculate, with the white walls, high ceilings and oak beams this room was absolutely perfect for a photo of the dress hanging up.

Ufton Court Weddings https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2019/5/ufton-court-weddings The Wedding of Megan and Tom took place at Ufton Court in Autumn, a beautiful time of year at Ufton Court, one of my favourite wedding venues, I am lucky enough to photograph weddings at Ufton Court often as I am a recommended photographer. I have known Megan for years as she used to work for Buzz magazine and sometimes we would go on assignments together, I photographed and Megan reported on everything from interviewing sir John Madjeski and Reading Football Club to business networking events and everything in between and we always had a really good time, it never felt like work.  It was so nice to be involved in Megans wedding day .

It poured down the whole day but with clever use of umbrellas and the legend ushers diving in and out of the photos to keep the bride and groom dry we managed to get some lovely shots.  Ufton Court has its own private woodland and Megan really wanted the photos taken there, I am so happy Tom was up for it too!

Weddings at Rhinefield House Hotel https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2019/5/weddings-at-rhinefield-house-hotel Rosie and Tim came to me after a few people they knew put my name forward, I photographed a couple of their very close friends weddings (thank you for the recommendations guys) so it was lovely to see a few people there I already knew. This was my first time working at Rhinefield House Hotel and I was not disappointed, it was a real WOW venue! . It was a photographers dream both inside and out.

Rosie has the bluest eyes, she looked absolutely stunning with long flowing hair and a silk ballgown dress, the look was so very fairytail and with such a grand venue it worked perfectly.

If you are going to look like a princess and get married in a mansion in the New Forest there is really no other choice for the transport.  I love horses and this carriage looked so much like the one from Cinderella, just magical. 

wedding photography by www.helensarah.com

Rosie and Tim's son walked Rosie up the aisle, as Rosie got to the front she put her hand on his shoulder to say thank you, this is one of my personal favourite photos as I think it captures the most special relationship between a mother and her son.

Wasing Park outdoor wedding https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2019/4/wasing-park-outdoor-wedding I first met Emily and Kieren when I photographed Kieren's cousins wedding John to his wife Amy.  My first thoughts when Emily and Kieren came for a chat about their own wedding at Wasing Park including an outdoor ceremony was this is going to make the BEST photos!   Getting ready in the morning Emily wanted to have a really natural look with minimal makeup and relaxed hair down.

Emily chose a simple figure hugging dress, I love this photo of her fathers reaction to seeing her as the finishing touches are completed.  wedding photography by www.helensarah.com

And they are still laughing together, I would much rather take a photo like this than getting serious posed look at the camera and grin pictures! I prefer to capture people as they are.  wedding photography by www.helensarah.com wedding photography by www.helensarah.com wedding photography by www.helensarah.com

Group photos look so much better when people are really smiling rather than forcing it for photos, I love to capture the group pictures in a more natural way.

The Wasing Park cat had to be in the photos, this cat is winning at life, he is now surrounded by an entire group of cat lovers and being the most cuddly cat in the world this is his lifes ambition.  I have lost count of how many photos this cat has photobombed!

Simple flowers in vases on tree stumps looked so gorgeous and fitted perfectly with the natural feel of the day, Wasing Park doesn't need too much as the barn building is so beautiful in its own right.

Tears and a lot of laughter during the speeches. Kieren's; speech was brilliant, he is so funny anyway., it was always going to be good.

Some dreamy light in these photos taken when the sun was a little lower in the sky.  Wasing Park has the most amazing grounds for photos and as everything is so close together it makes the photos so much quicker to do, so more time for Kieren and Emily to relax with guests and enjoy the day.

Wedding Photography at Oakley Hall https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2019/4/wedding-photography-at-oakley-hall I met Abbey and Joe through Sammi,  Joe's sister who's wedding I photographed a couple of years before, it was great to see so many familiar faces on the day and I felt like one of the girls in the morning. We started the day with all of the girls getting ready in the cottage on the grounds of Oakley Hall.

Abbey's dress was just dreamy with a tulle skirt and high neck, very bohemian and relaxed.

One of Abbeys bridesmaids was an mua and did Abbeys make up in the morning, she looked perfect. Hair was by Nicky Weller, a beautiful relaxed style that perfectly matched with Abbey's dress.

The Wedding of Sanne and Gijs-Jan https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2019/3/the-wedding-of-sanne-and-gijs-jan Sanne and  Gijs-Jan's are a Dutch couple who's wedding I photographed in London, in the Netherlands it is traditional to do a first look photo. These photos show Gijs-Jan's and their other close relatives reactions as Sanne comes down the stairs at the Threadneedles Hotel in London and he sees her for the first time.

wedding photography by www.helensarah.com wedding photography by www.helensarah.com wedding photography by www.helensarah.com

This is my second Dutch wedding, the first one was for their close friends Mr and Mrs Van -Stratton who's wedding I photographed a couple of years before and they did their first look with their dog which was so great!  The majority of my work comes from word of mouth and I am always busy so a huge thank you to all of my lovely customers for recommending me. 

wedding photography by www.helensarah.com

In the Netherlands the order of the day is a little different. The main speeches were done before the wedding took place. The weddings have a really relaxed tone to them which I really love as photographing natural photos is what I love to do. 

wedding photography by www.helensarah.com wedding photography by www.helensarah.com

As this was my first time photographing in London all of us were looking at places to take photos and Sanne found this absolutely incredible market place complete with cobbled streets.  We went all around London in a wedding taxi and took photos all over.

Romantic photos on the bridge with the Shard in the background. These two just looked so fantastic together. 

wedding photography by www.helensarah.com wedding photography by www.helensarah.com

This is quite simply the most romantic thing I have ever witnessed. We were walking through Piccadilly Circus and had actually finished taking photos, we were just walking back to the taxi.  A busker is playing Bastille with a crowd of people stood watching. He asks 'Shall we dance?' I totally thought that Sanne would say no, she is a quiet girl but she smiled and took his hand and he led her to the centre and they danced and saw no-one else, just each other. When I said after about how many people were filming on their phones they were so surprised! I love this moment so much because it was not set up for the camera it was two people in love on their wedding day who wanted to dance. In many years when they are old and grey they can show this to their family and tell them this was us dancing on our wedding day in Piccadilly Circus. Keep being so spontaneous and free, you are going to have the BEST marriage! xxxxxx

Some of my favourite pictures from 2018 https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2019/1/some-of-my-favourite-pictures-from-2018  

Wow what a year!  I got featured in the evening standards and bride books list of best wedding photos, I have helped stitch people into dresses, seen brides crying, grooms crying, dads crying, even the dog crying and of course a lot of laughter too.  I have included a few of my personal favourite images from this year, I hope you all enjoy looking through.  If you are interested in booking me please visit the Contact me section of the site to see if your date is available.  Please note I normally get booked up well in advance with summer dates being the first to go, so it is best to contact sooner rather than later.  Please note if you have an emergency situation e.g. photographer is sick even if your wedding is tomorrow please call, due to the time it takes to edit and put together books I always keep a few dates free and also know a good network of photographers, if I am able to help I will. I will stop talking now as a picture really does speak a thousand words :)

What a FANTASTIC year! https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2018/1/what-a-fantastic-year This year has been one of the best ever years for Helen Sarah Pictures.  I have taken some personal lifetime favourite wedding photos and made some lifetime friendships!  Some INCREDIBLE things happened, one of my couples spontaneously dancing in Picaddily circus to a busker playing Bastille on acoustic guitar was one of my lifetime favourite moments and something I will never forget (photos in the video)  There were SO many incredible moments the year, this is just a small selection to show you all, you may recognise some people as there are a lot local to Newbury and Basingstoke :)  I have so many more to come I am going to need to make another video!  :) Thank you so much to everyone who has let me be involved in their most special day, I am so lucky to be able to do this as a full time career for so many years now. Also for all of the people who pass my name on, I don't advertise so without you all there would be no Helen Sarah Pictures!  I can't wait to see what next year brings, all my love Helen x

Wedding Photography at Rivervale Barn Yateley https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2017/4/wedding-photography-at-rivervale-barn-yateley A beautiful Autumn wedding at rivervale Barn to feature as my first ever blog post!  Daniela and James were married at Rivervale on 26th October 2016.  The weather was wonderful, we had blue skies and Rivervale looked Stunning with all of the Autumn colours. I had previously taken their pre wedding photos and James was worried before as he doesn't like having photos taken, but they all enjoyed it and we got some lovely photos.  Daniela got ready at her parents house as it was very close to Rivervale.  She wore a beautiful dress with Cinderella inspired sleeves and had her hair in a very loose fishtail type plait.  The morning was really fun, I knew one of Daniela's bridesmaids Lynsey really well as we both used to have horses at the same yard and we all got on so well, I even got invited on the hen do, but I couldn't go as I had a wedding.  Lynsey is in the first photo, I don't know what she was showing Daniela's sister, knowing Lynsey it is probably best we just focus on it being a lovely natural photo :D

We always do traditional group shots as well, but it is nice to include some that are a bit more fun/natural.  I love the one above with their parents. Everyone looks so happy and it is so sweet how mum is giving Daniela a kiss, I didn't ask her to it was just how it happened.  helensarah.comhelensarah.comWedding photography at Rivervale Barn Mill Farm Mill Ln Yateley GU46 7SS helensarah.comhelensarah.comWedding photography at Rivervale Barn Mill Farm Mill Ln Yateley GU46 7SS helensarah.comhelensarah.comWedding photography at Rivervale Barn Mill Farm Mill Ln Yateley GU46 7SS helensarah.comhelensarah.comWedding photography at Rivervale Barn Mill Farm Mill Ln Yateley GU46 7SS helensarah.comhelensarah.comWedding photography at Rivervale Barn Mill Farm Mill Ln Yateley GU46 7SS helensarah.comhelensarah.comWedding photography at Rivervale Barn Mill Farm Mill Ln Yateley GU46 7SS

I love how good the reflection is here!  Daniela and James chose this one for the canvas and we turned it upside down and you could see them perfectly! The grounds at Rivervale are stunning in Autumn, the next photos with the red tree behind goes so well with the colours in the bouquet.

The speeches were absoloutely brilliant with a lot of crying and laughter.  The best men did a brilliant job and both James and Daniella's dad gave emotional speeches which made fantastic photos. After the speeches it was time for the evening reception. Daniella first chose to dance with her father, I love this photo, you can see the pride in her fathers eyes.

Combe Manor Wedding Photography https://www.helensarah.com/blog/2017/2/combe-manor-wedding-photography Combe Manor is a real hidden gem in the Berkshire countryside, you wouldn't know it was there! Louise and Andrew were married here on 26th August 2016.  The venue is unusual in that it is one of the few remaining privately owned wedding venues and has been in the current residents family for many years. Combe Manor also has its own church, which Louise and Andrew chose to get married in. David (the owner) really gives the venue a personal home from home touch.  I have known Louise since we were young children, we went to the same primary school in Cold Ash although Louise was a few years below me.  

 

I photographed Louise's sister Holly's wedding previously and it was really lovely to see Holly and Anthony there with their little boy and now there are four as they have had a baby since :)   We started the day at Istyle hair salon in Newbury.  It was so relaxed and fun in the morning, we took over the hair salon, the girls at the salon were happy for me to snap away and I got some lovely photos of Louise and the girls enjoying the pampering.  helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

After the hair and make up had been done we were back to Louise's for putting on the dress and a little bit of chilling out time. I love this picture of Louise in her mum and dads house she looks like a magazine bride :)

Then it was time to leave for Combe Manor. helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

This was taken as the girls walked up to Combe Manor house to wait for Louise.  I quickly ran ahead to get the photo.

A fun one just before we walked over to Combe Manor Church, I loved Louise's veil, a long veil for photos is so great :) Then it was time to walk up that aisle!  This was taken as Andrew and Louise first looked at each other.  helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

Louise and Andrew's sister having a little cry :)  As you can see from below definitely happy tears!

Andrew and Lousie walking out of Combe Church, they both look so elated, I don't think these two stopped grinning all day.  helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

Guests formed a line from Combe Church to the venue (the church and venue are right next to each other) for Andrew and Louise to walk through, they were showered in confetti, so many happy faces.  helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

Then to the drinks reception and a a few group photos on the lawn. Pimms on the lawn was made for Combe Manor!  I love this photo of Louise and Andrew outside Combe Manor Barn.  helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

The photos of people relaxing and enjoying themselves are always some of my favourites, I think these kind of photos are what help Louise and Andrew to look back and remember what a brilliant time everyone had. Also they get to see parts of the day they would have otherwise missed, it all goes by so fast.

We did a few photos in the early evening light in the grounds of Combe Manor.

I love this panoramic, all of us are totally obsessed with the T.V series Peaky Blinders and when I took this photo I thought it has the peaky blinders look to it.  The views in the background are stunning, this was taken in the grounds of Combe Manor and the hill in the background I think is Combe Gibbet helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

Andrew suggested we all get in for a selfie, I totally forgot about this photo until I got to it while I was editing, it made me laugh, I have it as my cover photo on Facebook now :)  helensarah.comhelensarah.comhelensarah.com

I love this photo, the first dance and surrounded by guests but there could be nobody else in the room.  THE END :) I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog post.
