Louise & Steve at Woodland Manor Hotel

On Thursday 1st June I had the honour of shooting the wedding of Louise & Steve at Woodland Manor Hotel in Bedford. I properly got to know Louise, Steve and little Jack (AKA Squidge) at their pre-wedding shoot back in February at the local country park near their home in Oundle.  They were great fun and I couldn’t wait to shoot the big day. After getting ready at the local hair & Beauty salon, Louise and the girls headed back to mum and dad’s house in the village of Oakley to finish preparations for the day to come.  While I Read More

Natalie & John at The Bell Inn

On Sunday 28th May I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Natalie & John at The Bell Inn in Stilton. This was another lovely occasion with a great couple and a their equally great friends and family.  For me the day started at Natalie’s parent’s home in Peterborough where I met an excited bride getting ready with bridesmaids, family, cats and guinea-pigs.  My assistant Liz captured some getting ready shots of John and the boys before they headed off to St Mary’s church in Warmington for the service.

Helen & Paul at West Acre Lodge, North Yorkshire

On Saturday May 20th I had the honour of shooting the wedding of Helen & Paul at West Acre Lodge in North Yorkshire. I first met Helen when she was bridesmaid for Bryony last year.   With Paul being a keen photographer himself I was over the moon when they asked me to shoot their big day, especially as it would take me up to such a wonderful part of the country. Fast forward to May 2017 and I headed up on the Friday night for the big day. Knowing I was staying local the night before the wedding, Helen Read More

Kate & Trevor in Cambridge

On Thursday May 18th I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Kate & Trevor in Cambridge. This was a lovely intimate wedding with Kate & Trevor’s closest family.  In total there were 13 guests including Kate’s family who had all flown over from Australia for the special occasion. After the service at Cambridge registry office the rest of the day was very untraditional, done exactly as Kate and Trover wanted.  After the service there was time for some family photos, mingling, confetti and a wander up Castle Hill for a great view of the city. Next it was time Read More

Craig & Pratish at the Barbican Conservatory

On Saturday May 6th I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Craig & Pratish at the Barbican Conservatory in London. I sometimes wonder how a country bumpkin like me ends up heading to such exotic locations as London for a wedding.  Well, I first met Craig and Pratish (Prat for short) at Charlene & Azeez’s wedding last year, where Craig was “brides-man” to Charlene.  Thanks to Charlene’s recommendation I was now shooting a wedding at another amazing venue – the Barbican Conservatory at the Barbican Centre.    The best way to describe the venue is as a giant Read More

Charlie & Shaun at Hothorpe Hall

On Friday 5th May I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Charlie & Shaun at Hothorpe Hall in Leicestershire. I first met Charlie at a wedding last year.  As a wedding hair-stylist she was doing the hair at a wedding I was shooting.   After that she decided she wanted me to shoot her big day and after meeting Shaun and the boys it was decided I was the man for the job. And what a job it was!  A woodland wedding set in fabulous rural location with a great bunch of people, I couldn’t wait to get snapping.  Read More

Yumi & Tom at Longstowe Hall

On Sunday 30th April I had the honour of shooting the wedding of Yumi & Tom at Longstowe Hall. Wow, what a wedding! A lovely couple, a great venue and fabulous friends and family from far and wide.  Yumi and Tom live not far from me in Peterborough and yet their relationship began in Japan where Tom met his wife-to-be while he was working there.  Now living back in the UK, the couple chose the magnificent Longstowe Hall near Cambridge for their dig day. I met Yumi as she arrived at the venue with her bridesmaid and closest friends.  Yumi’s Read More

Jess & Jon at Lakeside Lodge

On Saturday 22nd April I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Jess & Jon at Lakeside Lodge. With wedding season in full swing this was another lovely occasion with a great couple and a fantastic bunch of friends and family.  The day started at mum’s house in March where Jess, the bridesmaids and family (and the cat and dragon) all got ready for the day ahead.  The weather was perfect so Jess and her dad made the trip to church on foot, St John’s was just 200 yards up the road!  Waiting for his wife to be was Read More

On Good Friday, April 14th I had the honour of shooting the wedding of Kayleigh & Stephen at The Haycock near Peterborough. Kayleigh & Stephen are a great couple and, with their two daughters Sadie & Scarlett, they make a lovely family.  I’d got to know them all better a few weeks earlier at their pre-wedding shoot and was looking forward to seeing them all again for the big day.  This time not only was Kayleigh joined by the two girls but also sisters and nieces too, making seven bridesmaids in total!  Stephen’s part of the bridal party was a Read More

Gemma & Tom at Hedingham Castle

On Saturday April 15th I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Gemma & Tom at Hedingham Castle in Essex. A wonderful couple, a fab venue and Star Wars!

There was also an Easter theme with it being Easter Saturday. There was an Easter Egg hunt for the guests to Read More
