May wedding at Copdock Hall

Have I got a belter of a wedding for you! I'd been watching the weather forecast all week in the run-up to Kaylee and Stuart's Copdock Hall wedding, in early May. Theirs was the first of three weddings over three days for me, and according to all weather reports, it was going to rain on all three days. (Spoiler alert:…

Rachel and Will's wedding at boutique countryside wedding venue The Compasses at Pattiswick couldn't have fallen on a better weekend: An Easter weekend that was so hot and sunny, it was hard to believe we were only in April! Even harder now when I'm writing this in June and I have the heating on <crying face emoji>. It was great…

Up there with the Bermuda Triangle, it's one of life's great mysteries: Why do wedding days go by so quickly?

What happens when you're trying to take photographs of two motorbike enthusiasts, when a group of motorbikes zoom past behind me? Not much attention paid to the camera, that's what. But I didn't even care, because ultimately that's what makes photographs go from 'good' to 'great', and Flavia and Mikey made for great photo subjects! We met up for their…

Sarah and I used to work together back when I was…

Kerry and Lewis couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, sunny, summery day for their wedding at Essex country house venue, Gosfield Hall. In fact, I may even go as far to say it was too sunny, if there is such a thing! Kerry had always dreamed of having a wedding at a white-walled venue, so she and Lewis fell…

I had to check the calendar a couple of times when Chanelle and Shaun's wedding kicked off my 2019 wedding season, as although we were in February, it felt much more like summer! The sun was shining all day over at The Reid Rooms, where Chanelle and Shaun were having their wedding ceremony and reception, and it was so mild,…

One of the trickiest elements of planning a wedding is understanding how much things cost, and how much you're going to need, and flowers are near the top of that particular conundrum. I spoke with Kelly L’Esperance, founder of Miss Fleur Floral Design, who specialises in fresh and faux flowers for weddings, and they're bloody marvellous. Kelly has some great…
