Osbourne House is one of the most beautiful venues I have ever shot at. It helped even more that Jazz & Emma's Wedding was a gorgeous day filled with love, laughter, attention to detail and a stunning wedding dress, what more could anyone want? The Myrtle growing at Osbourne House was planted by Queen Victoria and the flower from that same plant has been used in every Royal Wedding (including the recent wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), and it was also featured in the bridal and bridesmaid's bouquets and in the bridal parties hair, pretty cool ei?

Thank you both so much for asking me to photograph your wedding, and for the kind words you gave me in my facebook review:
" ***** - We booked Holly for our wedding at Osborne House in July after she was recommended to us by another photographer. From the first enquiry we sent Holly to even after the big day she has continued to impress us with her professionalism as well as friendliness!
On meeting Holly for a coffee to see her work we decided to book her then and there as really liked the photos she showed us as well as her as a person and felt like we were in good hands. Our next meeting was at our engagement photoshoot which I really recommend if you decide to book Holly! She managed to take some great photos of us and our dog in Ventnor and it got us used to being in front of a camera.
On the day itself, Holly was great and a lot of out guests commented on how lovely she was. She managed to get the formal photos done really quickly so the guests could go back to enjoying themselves, and then we went on our professional shoot with her. She managed to take us to some areas of Osborne House to take some really unique photos which we really appreciated.
Holly then sent us the file copy of the images within a week of the wedding! The photos are stunning and we couldn't be happier with them. Some of the photos taken were a surprise as we had no idea she had been there at the time as she managed to be so discreet!
We're so happy we chose Holly to be our photographer and would recommend her wholeheartedly to any couple looking for a relaxed, professional, kind photographer to be part of their big day!"
It all started with a random conversation between Jordan and I when we were setting up another wedding themed photo shoot. As we unpacked the gorgeous floral creations Jordan had made out of the boot of her car, we were talking about how much we both love dogs and how we wished people would take them along to their weddings more. Then she said "Do you fancy doing a photo shoot with dogs sometime?" to which I nearly shouted back "OH MY GOD YES! YES LET'S DEFINITELY DO THAT PLEASE!"
The result was this shoot. Featuring Ruby the Golden Retriever, Winston the Jack Russell, Alli the Fox Terrier, and my dog Scampi who is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
I am a huge dog lover and obviously I enjoyed taking photos of all four of my gorgeous models and chatting to the humans that were there as well, but it was so lovely to give them cuddles and praise in between shots. Most of the time when I sat on the floor taking photos of the other dogs, Scampi (who is in the first few photos) came to sit on my lap, I think maybe to remind me of who my dog was and to maybe send a message to the other dogs, silly pup!
A huge thank you to all the canine models and their owners for taking part.
