Spring Wedding Photography

After the long dark winter months spring feels like a wedding photographers best friend.  Weddings move back outside, everything is springing into life and optimism rules.  April and May are great months for weddings.

Spring wedding photography – Rosalind and William

The last of my spring weddings, Ros and Will’s day was set in a most unusual location – a grain storage barn on Will’s parents home farm. It had been transformed inside to make a fantastic venue for their reception, although the low light levels did make their wedding photographySee more »

Spring Wedding Photography – Victoria and Ross

It’s not that often I’m asked to stay right to the end of a wedding, but when the wedding is as action packed as this one I’m really glad Victoria and Ross asked me to. It’s also unusual I work with a second photographer as well and I couldn’t ask for a better oneSee more »

Bluebell Line Wedding – Jenny and Colin

I knew this wedding was going to be a little out of the ordinary – after photographing Laura and Russ’s unique Kent wedding last year Laura’s mum Jenny got in touch about shooting her wedding to Colin in 2015. Colin and Jenny had met on a train across Europe so they thought itSee more »

Cripps Stone Barn Wedding – Jessica and Heath

I arrived at Jess’s house in the middle of a hair emergency, but it was short lived thanks to some skilled bridesmaid intervention. Things were a lot calmer then and after seeing Jess into her dress I was off to meet Heath at their wedding venue – Cripps Stone Barn near Cheltenham inSee more »

Longstowe Hall Wedding Photography – Racheal and Jon

Racheal and Jon had perfect weather for their late spring wedding at Longstowe Hall last weekend.

London Wedding Photographer – Sophie and Jake

A garden wedding in the middle of London … not something you come across very often.  My first in fact in ten years of shooting weddings.  Sopie and Jake were keen to hold the wedding at Sophie’s parents house near Richmond Park and with some ingenious marquee construction they pulledSee more »

Bruisyard Hall Wedding – Laura and Brooks

A gorgeous spring day arrived for Laura and Brooks wedding at Bruisyard Hall last weekend.  A first time at this venue for me and for a wedding photographer it has it all – great light in the beautiful hall rooms, lovely grounds and a spacious barn with rustic charm.  My day began in the HallSee more »

A Highland Wedding – Katie and Greg

Something a bit different, my first Highland wedding and my first in a yurt – Katie and Greg were married in Achmore, a tiny village on the west coast of Scotland.  They held their humanist ceremony in the yurts which had been erected on the village green, I’ve shot a couple of humanistSee more »

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 andSee more »

Elms Barn Wedding Photography – Rosie and Adam (.. and Dexter)

I had to include Rosie and Adam’s gorgeous son Dexter in the title as he played a huge (and incredibly calm !) part in the day, right down to his own baby-sized tuxedo .. I started with Rosie and the bridesmaids – all seven of them, I certainly wasn’t short of photoSee more »

Town Hall Hotel Wedding – Jo and Enrique

It felt like the first day of spring en route to Jo and Enrique’s London wedding, blue skies and long forgotten warmth ! Town Hall Hotel was looking fantastic as it always does so after a few shots around the place it was off to see Jo and two of her four sisters. Shall we say tensions wereSee more »

Cley Mill Wedding Photography – Kim and Trevor

Blue skies … can be deceiving !  I drove through a snow shower on my way to North Norfolk last week for Kim and Trevor’s Cley Mill wedding and the arctic easterly wind kept us inside for much of the day. But Cley Mill was warm and cosy for their intimate family wedding and Kim andSee more »

Anne-Lise and Richard’s Hengrave Hall Wedding

From a blazing hot Saturday to an even hotter Sunday, this time on the other side of the country at Hengrave Hall.  Wedding photographers sometimes get to see behind the scenes at a wedding, and the first shot today is a scene that greeted me as I turned up early for a quick look around.  I didSee more »

Siobhan and Henry’s Barnsley House Wedding

It might be the last days of Spring but it feels like Summer has definitely arrived !  Siobhan and Henry’s wedding at Barnsley House in Gloucestershire was a scorcher. Which made it perfect weather for a quick stroll to the church and back before their marquee reception in the grounds of theSee more »

Lucy and Andy’s Wedding at the Compleat Angler, Marlow

Surrey Wedding Photography – Katy and Stuart’s Wedding at Ramster

My first visit to Ramster Gardens in Surrey – I was told the early spring had seen off the best of them, but they looked pretty fine to me.  As did Katy and Stuart – I started with Katy and the girls getting ready on site in the stables and then on to the main hall for the ceremony andSee more »

Wedding Photography at The Tithe Barn – Charlie and Oner’s Wedding

Wedding number two of the weekend was in Hampshire at the spectacular Tithe Barn near Petersfield. I started with the girls at Charlie’s parents house where I witnessed a new ritual for me – apparently if a bride rolls a baby on her bed on her wedding day she will be blessed withSee more »
