Islington Town Hall and Camden Pub: Rozita & Mark

What I love about weddings in an urban environment is that the beauty doesn’t always stand out so easily. There are no flower arches or golden hour fields to fall back on. Instead you have to look carefully and see the beauty elsewhere. Rozita and I talked about this before the wedding and agreed we both loved the juxtaposition...

Kent Life: Emma&Jimmy

Alternative, DIY, Wes Anderson themed wedding with animals. When a couple contact you and tell you that they are getting married in a pink chapel, that the groom is making his own pink suit and that they have designed their stationary and basic theme on Wes Anderson movies, you say you will shoot their wedding! Whatever it takes. Thankfully...

Camberwell; registry office and pub wedding

Becoming a favourite style of wedding for me, the London registry office + pub combo. This relaxed wedding took place in Southwark registry office and then they all walk around the corner to The Crooked Well in Camberwell. I love weddings, in every shape and form, but it was always going to be a pleasure shooting Dave and Sonoko’s:...

The Asylum and Brixton East

  September 2016, I had the honour of second shooting for a wedding photographer whom I admire very much. Mr Matt Parry. He’s got a very commendable beard and his dry and slightly leftwing sense of humour tickles me – however, the way he pulls the interesting out of the every day in his photography is what really enthrals me about this chap....

The Tythe Barn, Launton: a glamorous evening wedding.

How chic – an evening wedding… ceremony at 4pm, drinking champagne and eating canapés by 4:30pm, (lots of drinking), a hog roast at just the right time and a ten piece swing jazz band. No wonder these two were channelling the 1940s movie stars look: Gary in his three piece and dicky bow, Kirsty with the figure hugging dress and red lip –...

Stone Barn: an elegant and fun wedding

Emily and Josh are a stylish couple so I knew this was going to be a feast for the eyes. I’d met them at other weddings of friends and then for their engagement shoot with their adorable British Bulldog so it felt like shooting the wedding of a friend. A wedding dress with pockets is literally my perfect idea...

Huntsham Court House: Mat & Gary

Slick. Fly. Dapper. Classy. Words that were buzzing through my brain when I walked up the staircase and into the prep of Mat and Gary’s wedding this February. Huntsham Court House was the perfect venue for them and matched what they wanted to achieve superbly: which was to have a massive party, in a gorgeous place, where all their friends...

TWENTY SIXTEEN

Well – Twenty Sixteen – What year you have provided. You have been full, busy, happy and sad. There have been tears, laughter, heartache and excitement. Don’t they say that moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do? As a family we’ve moved house twice. TWICE. Fully moved a whole house with two kids-worth of...

Lapland for Christmas

Forever pining for a white Christmas we decided to book Christmas in Lapland for 2016. We started off  just looking for a day trip which, within about 10 minutes, had turned in to a full blown holiday, to include Christmas day. From the offset we were hooked on the idea… we just had to keep it quiet from the...

Lanwades Hall: Amy & John

Balloons, flower crowns, Vera Wang, Louboutins, polka dots, space hoppers… a gorgeously fun garden wedding. I looked forward to John and Amy’s wedding day for months and months before it happened. Prior to the wedding we had done my all-time favourite engagement shoot in Wells Upon Sea, with all the beautifully coloured beach huts and the vast vast beach...

Wells Upon Sea: an engagement shoot

When you turn up to do an engagement shoot, on what potentially seems like a cold and windy day in Norfolk, but then the girl is wearing a tulle skirt. And. It. Changes. Everything… I knew from that very instant Amy and I were kindred spirits. I didn’t hide my delight and we went for it. Before we knew...

Mulberry House: Chris & Gemma

An Autumunal Wedding at Mulberry House, Ongar. Chris and Gemma promised me a FUN wedding right from the start, and I have to hand it to them – i had tears running down my face more than once that day. Whether we were ‘Blue Steeling’ for photos or watching the hilarious dance routine that Chris concocted for Gemma (not...

A Rainy Festival Wedding: Kayla & Badger

BONKERS / CRAZY / LIVELY / COLOURFUL: a festival themed wedding in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. Kayla and Badger wanted the relaxed of relaxed weddings – like when they went to their favourite festivals, surrounded by friends and family and a big P-A-R-T-A-Y at the end. They had decorated their big top style marquee in carnival multicolours; with pom poms streamers...

Dunwood Hall: Matt & Tab

Dunwood Hall: Matt and Tab. One of my all time favourite weddings, Matt and Tab had a humanist ceremony in a beautiful manor house on the outskirts of Leek in Staffordshire – Dunwood Hall. They were determined from the offset to break all the rules; there was definitely never going to be any sign of a meringue wedding dress or a...

Brighton Bandstand: Max and Emma

An elegant wedding on Brighton Bandstand Emma and Max’s wedding was one of my favourite types of wedding – they kept it nice and simple, fuss free and full of love and lots of class. The ceremony, on Brighton Bandstand, was just down the road from where the girls got ready at The Grand Hotel. The moody grey skies...

A *colour pop* wedding in Bedfordshire with lots of Gin.

Gin Themed Wedding. You know it’s going to be a slightly crazy wedding when you find out that the theme is … GIN. Standard themes (which I always look forward to because every couple does it differently) “boho wedding” or a “country garden themed wedding” or “festival wedding” wedding. But I had never before been to a Gin themed wedding....

An alternative and intimate wedding

Ink, piercings, bright red hair and a vintage dress. So, on face value, those are the details. The elements that identify this cool couple: the tattoos, piercings and alternative look they both wear so well. I’ve known Lou for a long time and I don’t think I’ve ever ever seen her without the perfected cat-flick eyeliner! Perfectly symmetrical! It was the dress that...

Matt and Tab: Salcey Forest, Northampton

This pre-wedding shoot was a perfect example of what it’s about: getting to know one another, testing the waters of photography and seeing what we were all comfortable with. On a wedding day I might feel a little awkward getting a couple to lie on the ground to get a shot, even if I know it’s the perfect thing...
