Old Library Wedding Photography: Maria & Mathew

In complete contrast to my last post, Maria and Mathew chose the vibrant urban setting of Digbeth (or should I say Eastside?) in Birmingham for their wedding. While I love shooting in the countryside, it’s great to be back in the city every so often as it’s such a contrast and there are so many interesting photo opportunities to be had. Maria got...

Shustoke Farm Barns Wedding Photography: Steph & Rik

Crown & Sandy's Wedding Photograpy: Susie & Ben (Preview)

Fazeley Studios Wedding Photography: Nicola and Damon

I'm starting May with a blast from the past. Three years ago on this very day, Nicola and Damon tied the knot at my favourite local urban venue, Fazeley Studios in Birmingham. It was such an emotional day, and Nicola punching the air with her bouquet as she walked back down the aisle is one of my favourite shots from 2014. Happy anniversary Nicola...

They chose Old Thorns near Liphook and were keen to have natural documentary coverage so they could focus on enjoying the day with their family and friends. Natalie looked absolutely stunning and the aisle in the Champagne Bar was strewn with...

Wootton Park Wedding Photography: Rachel and Rob

It set the tone for a very relaxed and fun filled day at one of my favourite local venues, Wootton Park near Stratford upon Avon. Rachel and Rob are a chilled out couple and chose a relaxed One Life ceremony outdoor...

Gorcott Hall Wedding Photography - Katie & James

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged – it’s one of those things which gets pushed to the bottom of the to do list once wedding season gets into full swing, but I’m determined to turn over a new leaf in 2017 as I have so many fabulous weddings to share! I started my wedding year down in Hampshire last weekend and I’ll be posting some pictures f...

Sophie and Geraint will be tying the knot there very soon, but they wanted to do their pre-wedding photos somewhere different.

I had an extra special reason though as I got married there myself....
