Married at Gaynes Park – Joely and Tom

Perfect autumn weather for Joely and Tom's wedding last weekend, bright and sunny with the leaves just starting to turn on the trees, ideal for a Gaynes park wedding. Joely and Tom's parents live just minutes from each other in Barnet so I had to brave the M25 to spend a short time with each family for the end of their preparations before heading off to Gaynes to catch guests arriving. Joely and ...

Gaynes Park Wedding Photography – Becca and Chris

The second wedding of the weekend was again in Essex, Becca and Chris were celebrating their wedding at Gaynes Park near Epping. The weather had cooled a little from Saturday and there was a sniff of rain in the air. Becca and Chris were both getting ready on site so I flitted between them as they made their final touches. The heavens opened just in time for the ceremony of course but Becca braved ...

Arlington Ballroom Wedding – Charlotte and Casey

A stripper improves any wedding, right? That seems to have been the train of thought of Casey's best men at his and Charlotte's Arlington Ballroom wedding at the weekend, but more of that later... After a week of rain Saturday was a scorcher, already up to 30 degrees when I arrived to cover Charlotte's preparations at their lovely light filled home. Charlotte's mum's reaction when she saw her ...

Katie and Mike’s Gaynes Park Wedding

Another beautiful summer's day for Katie and Mike's wedding photography at Gaynes Park last week. A little break with tradition with the speeches immediately following the ceremony meant a stress free afternoon for all and into a balmy summer evening with a beautiful sunset. Congrats Katie and Mike !

Gaynes Park Wedding – Natalie and Steve

Another blazing day last Thursday for Natalie and Steve's Gaynes Park wedding, I arrived on time ... Natalie didn't, so I amused myself capturing some details in the heat before the girls arrived. Steve treated us to few tears as Natalie walked up the aisle towards the Orangery and a few more during the ceremony and then it was out into the July sunshine for drinks. No more tears. Until the ...

Gaynes Park Photographer – Anna and Stephen’s Wedding

I was really looking forward to seeing Anna and Stephen again, we'd had a fun engagement shoot in Cambridge a couple of months ago and I knew their Gaynes Park wedding would be great fun.   I turned up a little early so filled my time with a bit of a wander round to get some detail shots and then presented myself at the Apple Loft to say hello to the girls ... no-one there.  It turned out the M25 ...

We really couldn’t have asked for anything more

Another week, another thank you card, it's been a good year !  I've said this before but I never ask for client testimonials, but they're always a pleasure to receive. This one is from Sophie and Ben, following their Gaynes Park wedding a few weeks ago. 'Dear Duncan, We really couldn't say a bigger thank you for our outstanding wedding photographs - what a way to remember the most inc ...

Leez Priory Wedding Photography – Louise and Julio

Saturday was hot, very hot.  So hot that Louise spent most of the preparations wearing very little ... so there's a few less preparations shots than normal.  Everything was taking place at Leez Priory so I didn't have to wander far to find more family-friendly shots of Julio and the guests arriving. When everyone had their clothes on it was a quick stroll over the lawn for their outdoor ceremony u ...
