Francesca and Johnny got married today at beautiful Rivervale Barn near Yateley in Hampshire. I first met Johnny about ten years ago and was delighted to hear that he was tying the knot. It was a lovely spring day and although rain was forecast for the afternoon we only had a few showers for a…

The first edition of the Encyclopaedia Brittanica, published in 17-something, lists Kensington as ‘A pleasant village two miles west of London.’  :) It was in leafy Kensington in West London that I found myself today photographing the wedding of Nadia and Saher. The arrangements were made fairly late, Nadia’s parents had only very recently moved…

I was delighted to present Roz and Keith with a beautiful album from their wedding at RIBA, London. They chose a lovely Riviera blue cover in leather for their book and, as with all of our wedding albums, I designed the layout around the photographs that they chose. I hope it will be an amazing…

When I chat with my lovely couples about their upcoming wedding and the photography arrangements, I totally understand how impossible it is to think about looking back to the wedding day in 50 or 60 years time. I remember getting married at the age of 29 and life was so busy, there were so many…

Charlotte and Ben’s wedding was in Ascot at St. Mary’s School with the reception just down the road at Coworth Park. Charlotte is a teacher so the chapel at her school was an obvious choice for their small wedding. The wedding photography started at Charlotte’s mum’s house in Virginia Water. I was thrown for a…

It was good to back at Luton Hoo to photograph a wedding. I’d been at this imposing Bedfordshire wedding venue before to photograph an Asian wedding so I knew how photogenic the hotel and gardens were. Sometimes it’s frustrating at a wedding, knowing that you could spend hours (days!) creating beautiful wedding portraits in an…

When the weather turns a bit gloomy this time of year photographing weddings can be a bit dicey. You’re pretty much expecting less than optimum weather in winter and planning accordingly. I knew ahead of time that whatever the day might throw at us it was going to be a memorable wedding celebration. Kelly and…

What a lovely intimate wedding at the Vineyard Hotel in Stockcross near Newbury. Mark and Fi got married in the Calistoga Suite at the hotel with their closest family and friends in attendance. I first met Fi and Mark some years ago as the couple work together at Beau Events, a specialist wedding chair cover…

Up to London today for the wedding of Roz and Keith at the Royal Institute of British Architects in Portland Place. I’d not had the pleasure of meeting the couple beforehand (or photographing a wedding at this spacious and light venue) but I was pleased to see how relaxed Roz and Keith were about the…

Christina and Patrick got married today! The wedding was held at St. Annes Church in Bagshot and the reception was just around the corner at Pennyhill Park Hotel. The day started with Christina and the girls getting ready at home. Christina had a great ‘support team’ around her in the morning which is always a…

I photographed a lovely little midweek wedding at Easthampstead Park. It was great to be there with Caly and Jon and their families. It’s been a long time since I was at Easthampstead Park so it was nice to be back. Civil wedding ceremonies are a lot more relaxed these days, when I started photographing…
