October Wedding Fayres

I will be exhibiting at two wedding fayres this October, so here are the dates for your diary.

The Noke Mercure, St Albans – sunday 8th October 2017

Shendish Manor,Hemel Hempstead – sunday 22nd October 2017

This is a great chance to meet lots of wonderful suppliers, (myself included!) and see my work and albums and have a chat about your forthcoming wedding and photography requirements.  Look forward to seeing you there.

Toddler Family Shoot

Last saw this little one when he came for the Easter Bunny shoot – now walking and running around I managed to combine photos of him by himself and with his parents too as well as some individual portraits with each parent. All in 30 minutes with three different backdrops and various props.  Photos provided in both colour and black and white so you will receive both.

Here’s a few examples of this cute shoot – if you fancy a shoot for no particular reason except to record memories then give me a shout email: Claire@artbyclaire.com

Wedding at Shenley Cricket Club

What a beautiful day at the stunning walled gardens of Shenley Cricket Club – a totally beautiful place to have your wedding portraits if you are considering this venue.  As the evening wore on, out came the cricket bats and the games commenced.  A beautifully decorated venue by Dress it Yourself, the theme was rustic, laid back and amazingly all styled by the groom himself – he did the most fantastic job!  Well done guys on your creativity – it was also lovely for me to see some other couples whose wedding I had done in the past too. Thanks for recommending me.  Your photos will be ready soon but in meantime here’s a few…


Georgina & Karl’s most beautiful wedding

I had a fab time with these two at their wonderful home taking photos of the bridal prep, then at the gorgeous All Saints Church in Croxley Green, then whizzing on to West Herts Golf Club where the weather was positively tropical – I don’t think I am exaggerating when I say it might have even been 35 degrees at one point….. Luckily my flashes didn’t burn out – phewy… got some stunning black and white photos too..

here’s just a small handful of their incredible day – thank you for letting me be your photographer and sharing the day with me… your friends and family were lovely.


Beautiful Baby Bump Shoot

I photographed a lovely lady’s baby bump yesterday and as her dad had come all the way from Mexico, we even got a few of the two of them together as well as her husband. They know it is a girl and they even have the name planned – Mia… she’s due on 28th July so she’s currently 37 weeks – it was bit touch and go whether or not she was going to make the shoot but she did – lots of luck with the birth and looking forward to seeing the baby in person when it comes for it’s newborn shoot at The Baby Studio…

Here’s just a couple of beautiful pregnancy shots:


Latimer House 

I visited this beautiful venue today and can highly recommend the newly redesigned Latimer House as a superb choice for your wedding. It has been done with utmost attention to detail and is both contemporary and stylish too. Located right by the River Chess it is scenically gorgeous. I am also now a recommended supplier and totally thrilled about this. Staff were also ultra friendly. A great sign! Here’s just a few photos of this wonderful wedding venue.
