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 ...

Jade and Dan’s Kingscote Barn Wedding

Twas a grey and miserable morning when I arrived at Kingscote Barn in the Gloucestershire hills near Tetbury.  But I brought the sun with me and the afternoon was sunny and crisp for Jade and Dan's autumn wedding. Straight away I bumped into Den - a past client who had recommended my wedding photography to Jade and Dan.  He was there in an official capacity, he would be spending the rest of the ...

Norfolk Wedding Photography – Kelly and Stephen

Kelly and Stephen chose Brasteds near Norwich for their intimate autumn wedding.  I've been photographing weddings for nearly 10 years but it was my first time there despite it being only 30 minutes down the road, strange ! I started with Kelly and the girls  and was surprised to bump into a familiar face in the shape of the father of a previous bride - I had shot Steve's sister Claire's weddin ...

Castle Hill Wedding Photographer – Jessica and Glenn

Last weekend I was in Chittlehampton, a little North Devon village with a not-so-little church.  The girls were getting ready just round the corner at Jessica's parents home.  Here I bumped into Jess's brother Alex and his wife Hayley, I shot their wedding in 2008 and they haven't changed a bit .. apart from two new little additions to their family.  Out into the wet Devon weather and over to the ...

Buckinghamshire Wedding Photography – Chloe and Matt

What goes around comes around ... Chloe's sister Jessica contacted me in 2008 about photographing her wedding - I was busy on her date so I recommended my friend Rob.  Rob shot Jessica's wedding and 5 years later it was Chloe's turn to get married.  She tried Rob .. but he was busy and recommend me and so the circle is complete. Chloe had asked me to arrive early with Matt as she had a little s ...

Documentary wedding photography – Laura and James

The start of a long-haul weekend for me was an east coast to west coast drive to Laura and James' wedding at the Great Hall at Mains near Blackpool.  Shocking weather on the way over the night before gave way to a dry start on the wedding day.  I caught the last of Laura's preparations at the nearby Shard Hotel and then over to the Great Hall in time to catch her arrival.  After an emotional cerem ...

Norfolk wedding photography – Izzy and Ben

More lovely weather for my last November wedding of 2012, and just a quick hop over to Brundall to start with Izzy and the girls for the finishing touches to their preparations.  Then another quick hop to St Marys church in South Walsham in time to catch Ben before Izzy's arrival in a vintage Rolls Royce.  As with all my November weddings this year the afternoon was bright and sunny, with just eno ...

Nonsuch Mansion Wedding Photography – Louise and Nick

Another Autumn wedding, another rainy start, another amazing afternoon ! The grounds at Nonsuch Mansion looked fantastic in their Autumn colours, even with the grey skies when I arrived for Louise and the girls preparations.  The morning hadn't gone entirely without incident but everyone was ready on time for the drive to the church in their vintage Rolls Royce.  5 minutes down the road and Lou ...
