Coworth Wedding Reception Photography | Charlotte and Ben

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…

Luton Hoo Wedding Photographer | Kiersten and Adriano

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…

Wedding Photography at the Elvetham Hotel | Kelly and Tim

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…

RIBA London Wedding | Roz and Keith

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…

Easthampstead Park Wedding | Caly and Jon

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…

    Simon, 

    What can we say?! The photos are fantastic and we cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you did, not just with the pictures but on the day as well.

    Prior to the day you were incredibly helpful, talking through what we wanted in detail  but providing advice and support when we needed it. 
    On the day you were fantastic. You were friendly and professional and I don’t think the groom and his ushers would have made it to the ceremony on time if you hadn’t been there in the morning! 
    We don’t know how you did it but all day you were literally everywhere without anyone really noticing which has meant that you’ve captured some really beautiful, natural shots of us all laughing, talking, embracing and dancing! It is probably these shots that we will cherish the most (just like you said we would)! 
    Even post wedding you have  been great, keeping us updated on how the pictures were coming along. The slide show has hugely impressed us and our family and friends and we cannot wait to pick the album – although there are so many amazing shots, this may take some time!
    Thank you again and we will certainly be recommending you to friends and family,
    Owen and CarolineReplyCancel

      Hi Caroline and Owen, thank you so much for your kind comments – you have me blushing :) It was really a great pleasure to share the day with you, it was great wasn’t it? I do hope the photographs will bring you much pleasure in the years and decades to come.ReplyCancel

Cheryl and Nick’s Wedding – St. Barnabas and The Swan Hotel

Cheryl and Nick got married today at St. Barnabas’ Church in Emmer Green near Reading. We all know how unpredictable the weather has been this year but the deluge that descended half an hour before was…biblical. Nick and the boys were in a nearby pub (an old wedding tradition I thoroughly approve of) and when…

Favourite Wedding Moments | The Life and Soul

One of the main reasons for commissioning a professional wedding photographer is of course to provide images that will be their most valuable many years after the wedding when your own personal recollections are fading a bit, the details become a bit hazy and your memories of the day start to lose their clarity and…
