Holly and Chris - what a wedding! The most beautiful English country garden marquee wedding.. incredible flowers everywhere, so relaxed, and ending with a fabulous band and serious shapes thrown on the dance floor.. I loved being part of their beautiful marquee wedding, held at Holly’s parents’ house in Gloucestershire, that sunny Summer Saturday. Here are a few favourites..Read More
So! You've booked your photography, your date is confirmed in the diary.. that's another thing ticked off the list.. True! But there are still a few things to consider between now and your wedding..Read More
This post is inspired by an enquiry I recently had, in which a couple had copied and pasted a long set of questions for me to answer (around 30 of them), some of which were out-dated ("Do we get the film negatives?") and a few where the answers could easily be found on my site and within my information and pricing pages ("What is your style?" / "What is in your packages?")Read More
Last Thursday was just perfect. Jen and Dan were a fabulous and so-in-love couple, their venue was beautiful and the sun shone all day long. I was so excited to join them for their Sandhole Oak Barn wedding in Cheshire - I love a relaxed barn wedding and they had styled this beautiful venue to perfection - it was personal, elegant, slightly rustic and everything just came together perfectly.Read More
Something I chat to my couples a lot between them booking and their wedding is their timings. I routinely send out timings forms (as most photographers do) ahead of the wedding to check and confirm locations, ceremony time, meal time, when the speeches will be.. you get the idea. The weddings I cover each year are really varied in that a lot of my couples are having weddings at venues with co-ordinators, and a lot are organising a lot of their own timings and their days have a more 'DIY' approach. Some of the weddings I cover are structured, and some aren't. Every wedding is different.
Hopefully this blog post will help cover any questions and give some advice that I've picked up along the way over my years shooting weddings.Read More
Well, where do I even begin? Chris and Simone had the most beautiful city centre November wedding in Gateshead and Newcastle and I had the pleasure of being their photographer for the day. Simone and Chris both have a background in Art, and they pulled together artists and friends to help create their vision for the day, from the table decor to Simone's hand-painted leather jacket. They had seasonal Autumnal styling, Simone wore the most amazing beaded dress, and the whole day was so fun and relaxed.Read More
