I'm really excited about Genevieve & Gavin's wedding this summer, not least because these two cool cats were such amazing fun on their pre-wedding shoot in Richmond Park.
It was such a beautifully warm day and best of all there were deer, awesome posing/not posing and a passing friend to play with.
Thanks guys for an amazing afternoon in such a stunning venue.
The life of a wedding photographer is often fast-paced, you spend a good portion of your time meeting with couples and organising the flow of their big day. A day which we play such a huge role in, whether we are documenting the wedding or shaping scenes, our photographs are there to showcase the spirit and magic of each wedding.
Wow, 2016 has been a crazy year.
Between the weddings, parties and growing commercial work I can't wait for 2017!
I can't thank all the new Brides and Grooms who invited me to share their incredible journey with them this year. Each and every wedding has been truly amazing, all of you worked so hard to create the most memorable weddings.
All the best for 2017,
Wonderful meeting these two and having a great laugh in the stunning grounds of Locko Park.
I recently took these two very lovely people out for a Pre-Wed shoot. Sherwood Forest is absolutely stunning at this time of year. Thanks guys for a truly memorable morning walk :).
Natalija & Jonny got married in the idyllic surroundings of Prestwold Hall. The ceremony was at St Andrew's church which is in the grounds of this stunning stately home.
It truly was an incredible day with some surprising and memorable twists; During the stunning ceremony, Natalija & Jonny treated us to a brilliant harpist and a classical opera singer. With fantastic readings from both Natalija's brother and chief bridesmaid, all set the stage for a memorable day.
Kate and Pete got married at St James', a beautiful 14th century church in the village of South Anston. After the ceremony, we headed to Thoresby Riding Hall, the guests were treated to drinks and canapés on the lawn before heading into the stunning riding hall. It was an absolutely brilliant day, Kate & Pete's hard work shone through-out and the grounds at Thoresby really are an incredible setting!
Something a little different for this Pre-Wed Shoot. Non-other than Becky (@beckyqof) and her dashing fiance Tom. We had a great evening which started at their incredible flat for tea and then out for a walk around the stunning gardens at the University of Nottingham.
It was a fantastic wedding to be a part of, full of life and love. Sarah & Chris hired the amazingly talanted Jonathan Paul magician. Adding that wow factor to an already great day.
Thanks to Kate and Pete for a truly great walk up the Chesterfield canal for their engagement shoot. I can't wait to shoot their wedding in a few months!
I recently met up with Laura & Joe at Beacon Hill for their engagement shoot. It was pretty windy at the top but what a stunning view! Really looking forward to their wedding in the summer. :)
Laura & Luke hosted an incredible wedding at Cockliffe House. It's hard not to notice the attention to detail and homage to their favourite pop culture themes throughout. Their love for Star Wars was showcased brilliantly with Storm Troopers preceeding Laura down the aisle. They also hung a massive Star Wars styled banner above the top table reading "Together we can rule the galaxy". Laura walked down the aisle to the Jurrassic Park theme tune and one of the tables payed homage to the cult classic. These were a couple of my favourites from a multitude of fantastic details that made this wedding really special.
Happy anniversary guys, I can't believe it's been a year already!
I can't wait to catch up with you in a few weeks!
It was great to be part of Holly & Tom's big day at St Leonard's Church in Wollaton and then the Arkright Rooms in the city of Nottingham.
Had a great afternoon with Laura & Matt around the beautiful Rufford Abbey last week, a stunning setting for such a great couple!
To co-incide the launch of my new website I interviewed Val from Benessamy Weddings & Events, one of the industries greatest stars. Anyone who has worked with Val can instantly see why she's won the Wedding industry award for Regional Best Wedding Planner two years running!
Leanne & John got married in Morton on the outskirts of Southwell. A picturesque venue and such a lovely day.
Laura & Dan hosted a wonderful wedding at Mosborough Hall in Sheffield, it truly was the perfect autumn wedding with stunning colours and bridal wear to match!
Had a blast with these two around Elvaston Castle, I can't wait for their wedding next year!
Check out the strobist flash photography too!
Rachael & Rich chose a stuning Buckram cover for their Queensberry album and black mounts. I was chuffed to bits when this arrived, as were they:
"Just to let you know the wedding album arrived this week and we absolutely love it, thanks so much!"
