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,…

dogs at weddings

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…

It's hard to believe Flavia and Mikey's wedding at beautiful Lanwades Hall in Newmarket is already three months ago, because I think I've only just recovered from it! It's fair to say, when I first spoke with Flavia to hear more about their wedding plans I felt rather giddy with excitement, as she began to describe a day that comprised…

wedding how to

According to all sources, a wedding is defined primarily as 'a marriage ceremony', and so we should all remember this most important of all wedding day elements. Nowadays, as society has evolved, the actual ceremony part has become less and less formal, and in some cases - deep breath - they are no longer the focus of the day. But…

Larissa, James, Ryan and Harry braved a chilly and drizzly Spring morning and headed to Colchester's Highwoods Country Park for a few snaps, ahead of Larissa and James' wedding at Houchins in May. It felt like an age since I first met Larissa and James, particularly because at that time last year, Larissa was only just pregnant with their son,…

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…

Spanish English wedding London

There's something rather special about photographing the wedding of somebody you already know - in my case, Sarah the bride - and when she told me more details about her and Miguel's wedding plans, which centred around where they live, I was so excited for their day to arrive! Sarah and I used to work together back when I was…

The Reid Rooms

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,…

Groom prep getting ready wedding

Groom prep, short for preparation, or quite simply 'getting ready' on your wedding day, is something included in your wedding photos, should circumstances allow. Groom prep is the same as Bridal prep, where we photograph the Groom and his gents getting ready before they leave for the wedding ceremony on your day. Generally speaking, we try and fade into the…

Chelmsford engagement photo

I'm not sure I've experienced a more beautifully sunny summer's evening like when I met up with Chanelle and Shaun over at Hylands Park, Chelmsford, for their pre-wedding shoot. It was glorious! I was really pleased when they'd got in touch with me regarding photography for their wedding at the Reid Rooms in early 2019, as I'd previously met them…
