black tie Essex wedding

When I happened to catch a glimpse of 'Dress code: black tie' on one of Paige's Instagram Stories, I immediately messaged her with my over-excited approval, as I knew her wedding with Jake was going to be a special one! And I wasn't wrong! The destination was Down Hall, a country house wedding venue I've photographed at several times before,…

Well well well, here we are, it's my 2019 review and a chance to look back over a very busy calendar year of weddings! In last year's review post I said I believed 2019 would be my busiest year to date and I was correct, so if you'd asked me a few months ago in August about writing this round-up…

When Hannah contacted me many, many months ago to book her wedding photography, she didn't have to try very hard to convince me: her husband-to-be is in the Royal Marines, they'd be having clay pigeon shooting at their reception, and their labrador would be there too! Surely a photographer's dream mix for a summer wedding? Though Hannah and Matthew don't…

A peek behind the scenes of my photography year! It's those elements you don't get to see which produce so much intrigue, and we all love to see what really goes into making things work don't we? Generally, behind the scenes of weddings for us photographers is just us being permanently hot, dehydrated and seeking somewhere to collapse where guests…

Now I didn't say this to Hannah and Simon before their big day, but every time I'd shot at Copdock Hall previously it had rained 🙈 so I was keeping everything crossed we'd have dry weather for their autumn wedding. And.... success! I met up with Hannah and the girls in the morning as they got ready at Copdock Hall.…

Sometimes it's only once you can sit back, take stock, and look at certain wedding days again to truly appreciate what an epic occasion it actually was. That's certainly the case here, with Jessica and Billy's outdoor wedding in Newport, near Saffron Walden, back on the late August bank holiday. It was an emotional rollercoaster, with a Haka, sparklers, and…

Colour! 🎊🌈 It's no secret that I love wedding days that involve some colour, as a little bit of colour goes a long way to make impactful wedding photos. Whether it's bright or vibrant colours in the floristry or details, or even patterns within ties or stationery, injecting some colour makes a huge difference to how your wedding photos look.…

colourful Suffolk wedding

Certainly one of the highlights of my summer, Abi and Ben's sensationally colourful wedding at Butley Priory is here for your viewing pleasure! Despite a rainy forecast for their late July wedding (I mean, come on, what's up with the rain every weekend this year?), it stayed dry just long enough for Abi and Ben to make the most of…

Essex engagement photo

When Jessica first got in touch with me regarding booking me to photograph her wedding to Billy in August 2019, her description of "my boss' back garden" seems to now look a little understated, no? I met up with Jess and Billy on a summer evening to get some pre-wedding snaps at the same place they'd be having their wedding,…

When you book a wedding for June, you're probably justified in thinking that you're going to catch at least a little bit of England's summer weather, and luckily for Katherine and Jan, the unusual rainy spell stayed clear for their day! The recent unseasonable weather meant everything had been given a good watering, and therefore very lush and green at…
