Every picture tells a story .... and this is a story you want to share as quickly as you can.
With that in mind, as your wedding photographer I like to share some memories very soon after the big day (usually within a week). This will be a 30-40 (ish) image storyboard covering the day … A 'short story', the files sized to allow easy sharing with friends... while I work on getting the Full story edited to the highest level I can.
The selection here covers a range of my most recent Weddings.... enjoy - I did!!!!
Hook Norton Brewery
Sitting in its beautiful, mellow Cotswold Hills landscape, Hook Norton is a proudly independent and passionate family business that takes the very best of its handcrafted brewing heritage and combines it with a thoroughly modern approach, to create a range of real ales for today’s drinkers to enjoy.
- Not my words... but doesn't that sound good. It was an epic setting for Nick & Emma's wedding, absolutely loved it. Click on the photo to view this story.
Wiltons Music Hall
"The most important surviving early music hall to be seen anywhere... It is of outstanding architectural and archaeological significance" – The Theatres Trust .... Nuff said really isn't it? Needless to say when Lindsay said , 'we are married, this our party, its about friends having a good time, can you capture that for us?' I jumped at it!!!! What a beautiful location, steeped in history, culture and just oozing old world charm, please can i shoot here again.Click on the photo to view this story.
Two Woods Estate.
A 42 acre woodland wildlife estate in West Sussex.
10 acre meadow with fire pit, for games in the afternoon or guest camping.
An Enchanted Redwoods forest, a unique and magical setting for your ceremony. Jimi & Kayleigh's Destination wedding day was magical. Click on the photo to view this story.
I wanted to shoot this the moment we spoke, i thought 'this story is magic' immediately. These two had already been together 27 yrs, can you believe that!! They were getting married finally, 'but this was about much more than just themselves, it was a celebration of how times have changed and they wanted the day to be about friends'. The ceremony was at the Islington town hall, then on to the Sekford Arms where we all partied. lgbtqpride. loveislove. Click on the photo to view this story.
The Bike Shed.
Being a motorcycle addict myself this day was rather exciting for me, Tracey and Marcus had chosen The Bike Shed to host their wedding party for the evening. We started out at Hackney Town hall and then travelled by Route Master London Bus to the venue. Their priority for this day was that friends have a great party together, and 'we' did... i now count these two as friends, cool people, cool venue. Most images here are black and white, but as i was told, this day is about friends, sometimes i think colour can distract, while b/w lets you feel the moment more.

North Mymms Park Hindu Wedding.
I was honoured when asked to shoot this day, a Hindu Wedding sounded magical, I cannot thank Arjun & Renna enough for trusting i would capture the rich culture of their day the way they deserved, such amazing colour and energy, this was such a highlight for me to be a part of.

A Chelsea Wedding day.
Like so many weddings this last year, things had to be scaled down, dates shifted around, Kate & Niall still laid on the magic, a Chelsea Registry office kicking things off , then ending the day with a beautiful Mews street party. The 'main event' to be held later in Niall's homeland, Scotland. Click on the photo to view this story.
Scottish wedding photography.
What a great day this was. A Scottish style destination wedding in London. Men in kilts created such a great atmosphere, not too mention i've always wanted one myself!! Hackney Town Hall is a beautiful backdrop to shoot at too. afterwards we carried on the celebrations close by at The Prince Arthur pub and then on to Little Duck The Picklery at Dalston junction for dinner and speeches.

St Helens Church, Bishopsgate, London.
What a stunning day this was, St Helens Church in Bishopsgate is very close to the hearts of both Lolu and Anita, an amazing location for their day, the site has a history going back to 1210 as a nunnery.
Then a few beautiful portraits at St Dunstans in the east, once a majestic church now equally impressive in ruins, i highly recommend a visit.
We finished things off with a grand party at the Mile end Ecology centre. Click on the photo to view this story.
Forty Hall Estate.
Tarquin and Roberts chose to have their day at Forty Hall , a Grade 1 Listed Jacobean Manor House, nestled in leafy Enfield and set amidst an idyllic landscape. Built by former Lord Mayor of London, Sir Nicholas Rainton in 1632.
I am very grateful they put their faith in me to shoot this wondrous day in such a magnificent location. Love is Love!!! Click on the photo to view this story.
