My first wedding of the year and what a start! Jason is an old work colleague back in the days when we were starting out and temping in an office job and we have both come a long way since then. Jason and Beth are both school teachers in Kent and got married last week at Cooling Castle Barn. Owned by Jools Holland and really out in the middle of nowhere, it is a beautiful venue that is half castle and half barn (you probably guessed that from the name!). Martin Hobby came along as my second photographer and did a great job (the portraits of the guys at the beginning of this post are his.) You can check out his work here.
I do love a barn wedding, there is something so quintessentially British about them and this was one of my favourites so far. Moreves barn is in a small village near to Sudbury in Essex and it is a gorgeous location. Thanks very much to Rio Carciero who assisted me and took some great photos, you can see her work here.
I broke out the sparklers again and decided to go for something a little more adventurous. Please let me know your thoughts!
Just a quick shot from my good friends Clare & Jon’s wedding yesterday. It is always an honour to have friends ask me to shoot their wedding and it’s a great feeling to be such an important part of the day. We had fun with the photos, racing around in golf buggies and I broke out the sparklers for some photos at the end of the night. Plenty more photos to come soon but for now I am off to Greece for a week for a wedding. See you in a week!
Just a quick shot from a wedding at Moor Park Golf & Country Club yesterday. We were very lucky with the weather, having sun all day until we went inside to eat and then the thunder storms started! The rain helped a lot with this photo though and the venue is so impressive inside that it didn’t hinder the day at all. Plenty more photos coming soon
Just a quick sneak peak from Angharad and Daves amazing wedding at the Crown Plaza Resort this week. We were blessed with a great sunset again and funnily enough this shot was taken less than half a mile from my last week on the below post. It was a beautiful day, many more shots to come soon!
UPDATE: Lots more photos added! Click the link below to see more
Heres a quick sneak preview of Kate & Grants wedding yesterday. They are great friends and it was such an emotional and fun day. We may have been unlucky with the weather during the ceremony but we certainly did have luck on our side for sunset. They ordered me not to work too much but every time I tried to put my camera down something fun or interesting happened and I couldn’t resist! Such an amazing day needed to be captured and I still enjoyed every minute of it! Lots more photos coming soon!
This was my first wedding at the Greenwich Old Royal Naval College and I hope it won’t be the last. Films like ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Les Miserables’ have been filmed here and you can see why! It was one of those venues where it’s hard to take a bad photo. I was along shooting with Alex Beckett again (he does bring me to some nice venues!) and Vi and Al are a great couple and certainly made our job easier. Anyway, enough talking, more photos!
I can’t say how privileged I felt to have another couple of friends asked me to come and photograph their wedding in Australia this month. It was more of a flying stop this time (if you will excuse the pun) and it was hard to get on the plane back home.
The wedding was held on a farm out in the countryside of Western Australia and it was absolutely stunning. Set around vineyards and in the shade of trees around the sun scorched land, it was a relaxed and fun wedding that perfectly fit Adam and Millie’s personalities. I would like to say a big thank you to my good friend Nick Bardsley for helping out as an assistant photographer on the day, he did a sterling job! I won’t go on anymore, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves:
You could almost be tricked into believing that it was a hot summers evening by looking at the photo below. But make no mistake, it was very cold! It was however a beautiful day and Rhinefield House Hotel is a stunning venue. The below shot was taken just outside the hotel grounds in a forest of Redwoods. It was quite an intimate wedding, and a great day. Here’s a few shots:
It was such a privilege to be asked by Dani & Steve to come over to Australia and photograph their wedding. They are good friends and to be such a big part of their special day meant a lot.
It was a very different wedding to what I am used to, much more informal and relaxed and I loved every minute of it. I can’t think of a more beautiful background for a wedding than one of Western Australia’s beaches and that combined with these guys made my job very easy!
