Wedding & Portrait Photographer » UK wedding and portrait photographer specialising in creative fine art film photography.

outdoor wedding ceremony

When an Australian girl meets an Irish boy in Brooklyn and they decide to tie the knot in Oxfordshire, it makes for a wonderfully international wedding.  When the girl works in fashion, has immaculate taste and exceedingly talented friends who design and create a totally original and fabulous wedding dress, it makes for a wedding that oozes simple style and sophistication.  Well this is that wedding!

I just love the way Kate and Cullen approached their marriage.  They legally tied the knot one weekday in Brooklyn and shortly afterwards flew to the UK for their own personal marriage ceremony in the most beautiful green garden, officiated by their best friend in front of all their favourite people.  It was a lovely lovely thing to photograph.

Back in October I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do a bit of exploring along the north east coast of America.  The weather was incredible; the light was soft, golden and flattered everything it touched.  I always enjoy noticing the changing seasons and I knew autumn could be beautiful, but I had never seen colours as vibrant and varied as those we saw in Maine.

As much as I love these photographs, they don’t do justice to the rich array of fiery hues which presented themselves at every glance.  Wandering through Camden Hills State Park was undoubtedly a highlight and looking out over the vast expanse of forest from the summit of Mount Battie really was a treat and a memory I hope will never fade.

thornton manor wedding photographer

It was a beautiful spring morning as Joy & Rich prepared to say I do at the Church of the Resurrection & All Saints in Caldy Village on the Wirral.  Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse as the day wore on, but with a reception venue as beautiful and as cosy as Thornton Manor nobody minded at all.

I have a real soft spot for Thornton Manor as I attended the local primary school in Thornton Hough when the 3rd Viscount Leverhulme was alive.  Each year he’d invite the whole school to the Manor for a summer picnic and we’d all have a great time exploring the grounds and stuffing our faces full of cake!  As a child I never would have imagined I’d be back twenty years later photographing a wedding there… it was lovely to revisit the house after all those years and see it so full of life again.

welsh wedding flowers

Back in April I photographed a styled welsh wedding shoot on the outskirts of Llangollen in the rolling hills of North Wales.

Over the years I have become increasingly aware that there isn’t an abundance of wedding inspiration available to brides planning to tie the knot in Wales. So my clever friend Sarah and I decided to style a shoot which we hoped would go some way to filling the void, including as many details as we could think of which were specifically Welsh. We wanted daffodils to feature in a wild bouquet which would fit with the beautiful landscape we wanted to showcase in the photographs. With this in mind we tried to create a very natural, almost celtic styled shoot which would lend itself to the dramatic and ancient surroundings.

There were several details included which showcase the best of welsh traditions such as the ‘love spoon’, a beautiful marriage blessing in welsh by Dic Jones, locally sourced slate jewellery, a scattering of adorable spring lambs and of course a stack of delicious welsh cakes!
