A guest feature by our friends and Essex wedding photographers Amanda Karen Photography


When you think of lavender fields your mind probably instantly wanders to Provence, at least mine does. But time and time again I am reminded of the beautiful, almost destination wedding-esque vibes that we have here in the UK. This was definitely the case when Danielle and Joe wanted to have their engagement shoot in the lavender fields in Hitchin (others are available!)

Now, much like blossom season, lavender season is also a finite period and slightly fickle due to the weather, so we were on lavender alert so that we could pick the right time in the summer. As luck would have it, on the day of the shoot, the weather was perfect and getting there early meant that we had rows upon rows of lavender to ourselves. It was the perfect setting for Danielle and Joe, and actually they used some of the images to complement their wedding décor too, which I always love to see!

I know so many of you will be making plans to include your little ones in your day, and we’ve seen so many lovely ideas for children at weddings over the last months on the blog. Today I have a visual treat for you: beautiful imagery from London wedding photographer Eva Tarnok, with the sweetest mother & daughter enjoying the vibrant colours of lavender fields in the evening sunshine.

A tip for all of you mums and dads out there: gather up your little ones on your wedding day, whisk them off for a special few moments to enjoy being a family together. You’ll have images to treasure for all of your lifetimes, I promise.

This gorgeous editorial was photographed at Hitchin Lavender in Hertfordshire – a lavender farm where you can wander through the fields and pick your own lavender! It’s just beautiful. Images are by our lovely friend and wedding photographer Eva Tarnok photography, who is based in Wimbledon.
