I’ve recently realised that I post an awful lot of personal posts on my children and family blog, of little projects. film experiments, holidays, that kind of thing, but hardly any here on my wedding photography blog. So here’s a personal post but it is also sort of wedding related as this beautiful National Trust property of Mottisfont Abbey also hosts weddings!
So a little about me, you know if you follow regularly that I love film photography. Did you also know that I adore roses? Specially the old fashioned scented roses that go crazy in the summer (much to my husband’s annoyance as he gets “attacked” by the thorns in our garden when he has to do a bit of clearing up!) But roses, with their assorted colours, amazing scent, blousey, cheerful blooms make me smile and lift my spirits. So one day in July, I took my Mum for a day out to visit the famous rose gardens of Mottisfont Abbey. Of course, I only took a film camera and 1 lens and snapped away at these beauties, not just the roses, but the rest of the gardens too.

Here is the Abbey itself seen from the side and the front of the house.
Oh how I would love to photograph a wedding here, so if you are planning on holding your wedding at Mottisfont Abbey, take a look at the rest of my portfolio and give me a ring!
This post is also part of my international film blog circle so if you’d like to see more film photography, please take a look at my friend Jen Golay’s blog post here. I think she’s posting about fishing! Photos taken on a canon eos 3, lens sigma 35mm, film processed and developed at Ag Photo lab.
