Donna & Chris at Minstrel Court

On Sunday March 25th I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Donna & Chris at Minstrel Court near Royston.  I first met Chris and his mum Gill when they came along to one of my teaching workshops.  Both very keen photographers, I was delighted when Chris asked me to photograph his wedding.  I’ve shoot the weddings of several photographers over the years and for some reason I always feel that teeny bit more pressure! The day itself was a beautiful spring day, with the seasonal daffodils lining the lake and all around the grounds.    I was impressed Read More

Chelsea & Scott

On Saturday 17th March I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Chelsea & Scott. A wonderful day with a really lovely couple.  One of the colder weddings I’ve photographed with a biting wind that ensured most of the day was spent indoors.  But it did nothing to spoil such a lovely occasion as Chelsea and Scott tied the knot at St John’s church in March.   And the church made the perfect setting for not only the service but for the family photos and couple pictures too.  Chelsea was a great sport though and braved the cold to get Read More

Diva & Jamie at South Farm

On Sunday 5th November I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Diva & Jamie at South Farm near Royston. If I ever suffer a power-cut there is one person I would put at the top of my list of people to call – Diva.  She would light up any room instantly.  A lady with a very special personality.  Kind, funny and caring, it’s no surprise she works as a nurse.  And I’m not the first to notice, Jamie (a top bloke too by the way) clearly thinks so too, as does his dad who echoed similar thoughts during Read More

Debbie & Andrew at Orton Hall Hotel

On Saturday October 14th I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Debbie & Andrew at Orton Hall Hotel in Peterborough. Until she booked me to shoot her wedding, the last time I had seen Debbie was when she was still at school, helping out at her dad’s barbers shop where I would always go for a trim.  That was over 25 years ago!   I knew Andrew too.  He was the year above me at school and in a small fenland town you’d always see familiar faces out and about.  Andrew was (and still is) a keen footballer Read More

Rebecca & Euan & Slepe Hall

On Saturday 23rd September I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Rebeca & Euan at Slepe Hall in St Ives. Rebecca is the niece of my good friend (and “Wonder-Florist) Corinne Turner.  So I was thrilled when Corinne recommended me as the man for the job of shooting Rebecca & Euan’s big day.  I got to know them better at their pre-wedding shoot in their home town of Lincoln and couldn’t wait for the big day to arrive. I met up with an excited bride and equally excited bridesmaids at Rebecca’s mum’s house in March, conveniently less than Read More

Katherine & Luke

On Saturday 9th September I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Katherine and Luke. As a wedding photographer it’s hard not to become obsessed with the weather forecast.  The threat of rain was on my mind and I knew how important it was to Katherine that I was able to get them outside for photos.  So after the girls were all ready, we headed off to St Leonard’s church in Leverington to meet Luke and the boys ready for the service.  And as I feared the heavens opened.  Katherine dashed from the car to the church as the Read More

Cherry-Jae & Adrian at The Bull Hotel

On Friday 1st September I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Cherry-Jae & Adrian at The Bull Hotel in Peterborough. There’s something special about shooting a wedding at the Bull Hotel.  There’s no grounds at the venue so as a photographer I have to think a little outside the box in terms of how I go about getting some special shots of the bride and groom.  On this occasion the newlyweds made it easy.  I suggested going for a “walk-about” in the city centre and they were all for it!  With the bridesmaids coming along too we had Read More

Emma & Matt at Stoke Rochford Hall

On Wednesday 2nd August I had the honour of shooting the wedding of Emma & Matt at Stoke Rochford Hall near Grantham. I’ve always said that if I was to get married I’d like it to be a small, intimate affair with just my closest loved ones.  And that’s exactly what Emma & Matt chose for their big day.  With the bride, groom and 14 close family it was one of the smaller weddings I’ve shot, but certainly no less special. Emma got ready with her mum, Elaine, in the bridal suite and along with the make-up artist and hair-stylist Read More

Amy & Ryan at The Haycock

On Friday 18th August I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Amy & Ryan at The Haycock in Wansofrd near Peterborough. I was looking forward to Amy & Ryan’s big day as it was one of those rare weddings where I felt I knew many of the stars of the show before I started.  Amy had been bridesmaid for Natalia a couple of months previously so I’d got to know some of the gang then.  This time Natalia was bridesmaid for Amy, and Leanne had been bridesmaid for both.  They were brilliant fun last time and they certainly Read More

Nikita & Will at the Falcon in Fotheringay

On Saturday 5th August I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Nikita & Will at The Falcon in Fotheringay. I’d not shot a wedding at The Falcon before so a couple of days before the wedding I went for a bit of a location scout around the village.  With my nieces in tow we found a couple of great spots including the ruin of Fotheringay Castle, the final residence of Mary Queen of Scots who was tried and executed there in 1587. Thankfully no-one was being tried (or executed) on this particular occasion.  Instead two lovely people were Read More
