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

Emma & Justin at Anstey Hall

On Saturday July 22nd I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding on Emma & Justin at Anstey Hall in Cambridge. Some weddings are quite traditional in their approach.  And some less so. Emma & Justin’s big day was far from traditional.  With Emma being a Disney loving actress and Justin being into loads of great “boy stuff” such as Star Wars, super-heroes and Lego, this was never going to be a “normal” day at the office for this particular wedding photographer. From the outset I realised just how much Emma loved Disney.  Her shoes were gold in colour and Read More

Natalia & Bud at Longstowe Hall

On Saturday 24th June I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Natalia & Bud at Longstowe Hall. Another fantastic wedding with another lovely couple.  The day started in my home town of Chatteris with Natalia getting ready on one side of the street and Mark just over the road with his parents, family and groomsmen.  My second photographer Paul joined the boys while I spent the morning with Natalia, mum and the bridesmaids.  The girls were great fun and were clearly excited about the day to come.  While I was with the girls a gift arrived from Bud Read More

Mandy & Jack at Blackthorpe Barn

On Thursday 8th June I had the honour of shooting the wedding of Mandy & Jack at Blackthorpe Barn near Bury St Edmunds. Well, it’s not often I get to shoot the wedding of one of my best friends.  It’s almost 10 years since I first met Mandy and she’s been like a little sister to me since.  As a big brother I’d only want her to marry the best, so I was delighted when she told me she was marrying Jack,  a genuinely lovely guy who clearly loves her dearly. This was my first wedding at Blackthorpe Barn and Read More

Becca & Isaac at Burleigh Hill Farm

On Saturday 3rd June I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Becca & Isaac at Burleigh Hill Farm near St Ives. Before getting to the barn there was the most important part, the ceremony at St Mary’s church in Bluntisham.  The girls had got ready at Becca’s mum’s house and the highlight for me was watching the video Isaac had produced for Becca as a surprise for the morning of her wedding.  Several special guests came on with messages of congratulations and memories of the bride to be.  It was great fun to watch and to see Becca’s Read More

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

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

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

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! The recipe for an awesome day if ever there was one. The tables were named after Star Wars Characters, Darth Vader adorned the cake, a storm trooper was in charge of the sweets , R2 D2 looked after the rings and the groomsmen wore Star Wars cufflinks and socks. There was also an Easter theme with it being Easter Saturday. There was an Easter Egg hunt for the guests to Read More
