Bridesmaids pose

Bridesmaids - who are they, and what do they do? Well don't let the epic 2011 movie of the same name be your guide, because I'm not sure things will run particularly smoothly on your wedding day. Side note: Bridesmaids starring Kristin Wiig and Maya Rudolph is hands down one of my favourite comedies - so many quotable lines and…

Essex wedding photographer

Back to August 2019 we go, and a reminder of those long, sunny, hazy summer days that are perfect for a wedding. Amy and Terry's day was my second wedding at That Amazing Place in Harlow, in the space of a month, having never previously been before then. They'd enquired with me originally back in early January 2018, so I'd…

Looking for a colourful, vibrant, chilled, immaculately styled boho/festival-style tipi wedding in the country? Well look no further!

I'm throwing it back to summer 2019 here, with a long-overdue blog post for Lorna and Zoe's gorgeous wedding at The Secret Garden, in Ashford, Kent.

Wedding speeches are a nerve-wracking part…

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,…

best of review wedding photography

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…

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…

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…
