Essex Country House Wedding – Megan & Ben

Essex Country House Wedding - Megan & Ben
This was a first for me, photographing my first family wedding! Makes things a little tricky when you have to be in your own photos, so I will have to give Will Stedman some big thanks there, as well as for most of the dance shots! Megan and Ben's wedding was a laid back affair in Megan's parents' garden. It was a whole lot of fun for me and I hope I have done my fami[...]

Ye Olde Plough House Wedding, Essex – Karen & Dave

Ye Olde Plough House Wedding, Essex - Karen & Dave
I have been a little slack recently, as I have been from country to country on various shoots. I have some exciting blogs coming up though from Yosemite to Italy. First up is Karen and Dave's beautiful wedding at Ye Olde Plough House in Essex. It's a really lovely venue with a traditional barn and lovely gardens. I really enjoyed Karen and Dave's wedding, they were a [...]

River Roast Wedding, Chicago – Megan & David

River Roast Wedding, Chicago - Megan & David
David and I got chatting on Facebook through a wedding photography group a couple of years back. David is a great photographer (you can check out his work here) and I was very flattered when he asked me about the possibility of shooting his wedding a year later. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance, feeling a little nervous but with a lot of enthusiasm. I flew Will[...]

The Fennes Wedding, Bocking – Lily & Kevin

The Fennes Wedding, Bocking - Lily & Kevin
The Fennes is one of the few venues I have shot several times. It is such a good all rounder as a venue and I could never get bored of shooting the beautifully picturesque lake and bridge. It is like something out of a painting. I won't do much talking on this one as I have spoken about the Fennes before, except to say Lily and Kevin were a lovely couple and the day w[...]

Marks Hall Wedding, Essex – Sarah & Stephen

Marks Hall Wedding, Essex - Sarah & Stephen
My first wedding of the season and what a way to kick it off! It turns out Sarah and Stephen literally live around the corner from me and Sarah works with my Dad, it's such a small world. Sarah and Stephen were both very laid back and the wedding was a beautiful and relaxed affair. The ceremony was held in a church in Colchester and the reception in Marks Hall, which [...]

Wivenhoe House Wedding, Essex – Lisa & Patrick

Wivenhoe House Wedding, Essex - Lisa & Patrick
So this was my first wedding of the year and it didn't disappoint! Lisa and Patrick put a lot of effort into their big day and also made me feel very at home. They were blessed with some beautiful weather for January including an exceptional sunset. The evening got a bit crazy and we had a lot of fun, take a look and tell me you wouldn't have wanted to be at this part[...]

Leez Priory Wedding Photos – Misha & Adam

Leez Priory Wedding Photos - Misha & Adam
Misha and Adam's wedding at Leez Priory was my first winter wedding this year. It was bitterly cold and windy but they were all great sports and let me drag them outside for lots of photos. It was also my first time at Leez Priory, the buildings and grounds were all stunning. A big thanks to my second photographers Octavian and Adelina from Frame and Tales who did a g[...]

Prested Hall Wedding Photography – Marnie & Jamie

Prested Hall Wedding Photography - Marnie & Jamie
This wedding was the definition of fun. From surprise singing waiters (which was a whole lot of fun, don't miss the photos of this!) to champagne explosions, giant blow up flamingos on the dance floor (Marnie has a slight obsession with them) to some seriously funny speeches, the whole day was non-stop laughter. There's a few more photos than I would usually post beca[...]
