It’s such a pleasure to photograph two people who are clearly so wrapped up in each other. That’s exactly what I felt at the wedding of Bronwyn and Matt which took place at Wick Farm in Bath. The day started for me with a visit to see Bronwyn, her Bridesmaids and her family at a fabulous house they had rented for the occasion. As soon as I walked into the …

I had such a great time shooting Heather & Dale’s Devon engagement shoot that I had to share it with you as soon as I could. We met near Salcombe at Hope Cove which is so beautiful. Earlier in the year I was in California and visited a place called Paradise Cove. Hope Cove was every inch as beautiful as that. It had secluded areas surrounded by craggy rocks as well …

It started with a gift……a necklace given by a 16 year boy to a 16 year old girl. Fast forward a few years and that girl would be wearing that necklace on the day that she married that boy. That’s one of the best things about being a Devon Wedding Photographer, you get to find out about the most amazing stories and the connections brides and grooms have to each …

Have you ever played Animal Bingo? Well unless you were at Lizzie and Laurence’s wedding in June this year I am guessing you haven’t. The basic premise, everyone gets an animal with their name on it as their place setting. A selection of animals is read out and if 5 people on your table have a matching animal you win. Genius. If it’s a tie, then you have to do …

I first met Jess & Rob when Jess was a bridesmaid at Aileen and Ian’s wedding which I photographed as a Norfolk wedding photographer in August 2012. When they also asked me to be their photographer I was absolutely delighted and so off I went to Norfolk again for their wedding in September. Aileen was one of Jess’ bridesmaids this time around and it was great seeing them play out …

Ah Lucy and Nick’s wedding. Well it was held at the stunningly beautiful Walcot Hall in Shropshire and what a beaut of a venue it is. They were able to get in the day before to decorate how they wanted and then the day after the wedding all their guests came back for an after-party and to cure some fuzzy heads. Lucy and Nick live in London but Nick’s connections …

I’m not a huge fan of blowing my own trumpet but in this case I’m going to make an exception as the note that Ivonette and Ken sent to me was so lovely. They were married in September last year in Formby on a gloriously sunny day. They are one of the nicest couples you could ever meet and we hit it off straight away. Anyway, over to them… ‘From …

It’s hard to know where to begin with Hayley and Nick’s Cheshire wedding at Arley Hall because there was just so much wonderfulness! They had an incredible and intimate outside ceremony, and Hayley walked down her very own grass aisle through the flower borders. Arley Hall is also close to the family’s hearts, because Hayley’s Grandad (who you’ll find looking very dapper in some of the pictures) did some work …

The lovely Kris and Stef have actually just got married, so to whet your appetite before I reveal their wonderful wedding in all its glory, I thought I’d share with you their Tatton Park engagement shoot. We were blessed with a beautiful, warm sunny day for the shoot, and it gave me a chance to talk to them about the plans they’d been making for their upcoming big day. I …

Kate and Chris married in August at St. Mary’s church in Lower Slaughter in the Cotswolds, and had their wedding reception at Hyde Barn in Stow-on-the-Wold. They met in Australia while they were travelling with their respective friends, and Chris proposed to his girl in San Francisco. They had a yummy ice cream bike and a fabulous photo booth at their wedding to keep guests entertained. Lower Slaughter and it’s …

Rob popped the question to his gorgeous girl on Christmas Day back in 2011, on a hill overlooking their favourite view. The couple picked Peover Golf Club in Knutsford, Cheshire, after falling in love with it’s space, light, gardens, and of course the food! I loved their carefree, colourful theme – nothing was too fussy, it was just beautiful and natural and everyone was so happy and relaxed. Laura and …

Alison and Tony fancied some fun in the sun for their engagement shoot. As they live in Lancaster we thought Southport beach would be perfect for them. It was a beautiful day and really warm, so warm in fact that Tony’s ice cream pretty much melted before he had time to eat it. Seeing the smiles on their faces in these pictures made me so happy when I was editing …

When I first spoke to Lauren and Warren, they said not only had they been attracted to me by my photography, but also by the fact that they were big fans of The Smiths like myself. When I met up with them and Warren was wearing a Morrissey T-Shirt I knew we were going to get along just fine. For their engagement shoot I knew we had to do something …
