Osborne 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 Osborne 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!"
I had seen a photo of a poppy field in Chale on the Isle of Wight, on a facebook photography group and knew that I had to make a trip to this mystery field. I then realised that in a few days time Rachel and Ryan were going to have their pre-wedding photo shoot with me, so I messaged them on the off chance they we're up for the challenge of finding it's location and having their shoot there, and thankfully they accepted!
We worked it out, although I have to say Ryan should get most of the credit for that, and we we're off across the island in a little car on a photographic mission. Not only did we find it but I think we found it at the perfect time of day and we even had enough time to make a trip to Compton Bay as well before the evening light had disappeared.
Rachel and Ryan booked me as their wedding photographer many moons ago now and it seems so strange that the day is finally almost here and all the plans that we talked about will soon be unfolding. Thank you both for asking me to photograph your wedding day, I'll see you both very soon!
