Essex forest engagement shoot

I'm so happy when a couple asks me if they can bring their dog along to their pre-wedding shoot! I'd already met Smeagol the golden retriever puppy when I first chatted with Kristina and Adam about their wedding, and Smeagol greeted me with playful puppy rough and tumble (as they do - my dog also used to do this as…

White Hart Great Yeldham confetti

There are some weddings that go into my calendar that I just cannot wait to photograph, like fast-forward me to that day quick smart please! From our first correspondence, including a phone call on speakerphone so everyone could join in, I had an excitable feeling about Katie and Ross' wedding day, and I was not disappointed! Katie and Ross had…

Bruisyard Hall wedding

It was nearly two years since Toni and John had booked me to photograph their wedding at beautiful Bruisyard Hall in Suffolk, so it's fair to say I'd been waiting expectantly on this one for a while. When I'd viewed their date in my calendar, mid-late October, I'd always had visions of a chilly Autumn day in the Suffolk countryside,…

Down Hall summer wedding

Where do I even start with Mikaela and Steve's beautiful, emotional, incredible wedding day at Down Hall back in July? I'm not exaggerating when I say this wedding had everything, not least a Bullseye-inspired best men gameshow/speech - but more on that later! I was so pleased when Mikaela and Steve asked me to photograph their wedding which they'd planned…

Billericay wedding venue

In Essex we can't have too many wedding venues, each with their unique character and story, appealing to different brides and grooms across the county. So I was excited to learn a brand new wedding venue was opening local to me: Downham Hall. Downham Hall is set in the countryside on the outskirts of Billericay, a country house venue believed…

Better engagement photos

One of the biggest concerns my wedding couples come to me with, is worrying their engagement photos will look cheesy or downright cringe. Engagement or pre-wedding photographs are complimentary and included within all my wedding packages, and I'll be honest, frequently, my couples will admit to 'dreading' or 'not looking forward' to our time together doing these photos - and…

Engagement photos at Marks Hall Gardens

Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum provided the backdrop for Charlotta and Mitesh's pre-wedding shoot, not only because they'll be getting married there later this year, but also because it's bloody gorgeous! Marks Hall will be the venue for their second of two wedding celebrations, the first being a ceremony near Watford in early August, and then I'll share their second…

top-tips-for-gorgeous-wedding-photos

If I had a pound for every time I've been told by couples "We don't really look good in photos", I wouldn't be sat here writing this blog post, I'd be sipping champagne from my yacht in Monaco. As it is, no-one ever pays me that pound, and instead I reply with the same thing as always: Don't worry, we…

epping-forest-engagement

Have I got a couple of beauts for you! I met Hannah and Matthew (and their pet labrador Bear!) at Epping Forest for their engagement shoot, back on a very sunny day following Easter. Although Hannah, Matthew and Bear actually live in Devon, they chose Epping Forest because their wedding next year is being held in Epping, and after hearing…

Back in February, my 7 Top Tips for betting 'getting ready' photos were featured on The English Wedding Blog, one of the UK's most popular wedding blogs (if you don't already follow it, please do!). From my experience of photographing many frenzied bridal preparations, I compiled a list of the things that will really help your bridal prep photos 'pop'.…
