I can't believe it's been almost a year since Gemma and Howards amazing 'pink pineapple' wedding at Berrington Hall. There is an incredible write up of the day over at Rock n Roll Bride, so I won't attempt to be a writer here, but instead I'll tell you how I saw the day. It was just so rich in every way - colour, food, cocktails, cake music, people, love, fun, excitement. Literally all the ingredients you could ask for, made even more exciting given that the reception had to
I loved photographing Dan and Chris's wedding for two reasons. Firstly, because it was fun. Every single guest was there to have a great time and there was no escaping getting involved in the celebration. Secondly, because they had planned their day around all the things that were important to them - it was all about having family and friends together in one place, no pretence, just lots of love and Italian laughter. Their Birmingham registry office ceremony was brimming with
As I write this blog post, I'm sat trying to get my head around the fact that I photograph people having fun. Thats literally it. Thats the biggest part of what I do. Its overly gushy, but I'm so privileged to have this job and through writing these posts and re-visiting photographs from this summers weddings, I'm overcome with gratitude and excitement for where this 'occupation' will take me next. Mush aside. I've known Ayden for a while - we used to work together in a previ
As the saying goes... 'life is like a box of chocolates, you never know which one you're gonna get next' (yes, Forrest Gump is without a doubt one of the signalments greatest philosophers of modern day). If you were to ask Annelise if Ricky was the one she was going to marry upon their first meeting, I can assure you Ricky knew something she didn't. Yet, here they are a couple of years on, totally in love and getting hitched at Warwick Register Office. Their afternoon meal wa
Well, what can I say? What a wonderful family and a wonderful wedding. I photographed Vicky and Stevens wedding at Nuthurst Grange, Solihull on Easter Sunday. I would like to say the weather was mild - but it wasn't. Storm Kate arrived and along with both Vicky and their young daughter Ella dosed up on antibiotics, there was the potential for this event - this huge, massive deal, once-in-a-lifetime kind of event to have been a wee bit stressful. The world does like to test yo
Chrissy from the Wedding Quarter, Birmingham hosted a hugely successful Designer Open weekend, showcasing their collection of Alfred Angelo wedding dresses. Amidst the wedding talk, there was fizz, cake and ofcourse some wonderful brides to be trying on wedding dressees, some for their first time. I was in my element chatting and photographing, It was such a pleasure to capture this event and I look forward to working with Chrissy more when I finally move to our new home in t
We may have met at a fair, you may have found me online, I may have even been fortunate enough to be a recommendation. Either way, you got to the point where you dropped me and e-mail or a phone call to ask for my availability.
You may have some special requests or things you aren't sure about, so you ask a few more questions. You may want something that isn't listed on my website. Which ever it is, I will always try to accommodate where I can.
Because you are my invest
Recently, I wrote to you about the importance of printing your photos, if you missed it you can catch the blog post here. You will know that all of my photography packages come with permission to print and an online gallery, should you wish to order your prints through me. However, I just wanted to share these wonderful extras with you.
Over the last year, I have invested more time than I probably should have scouring the world wide web to find the right wedding album desi
"We are in a digital dark age", or so the Google's vice president Vint Cerf told us in last Fridays Metro newspaper. Just think now about all the outmoded forms of storage - floppy disks, VHS, even CD's. Try to find a machine that will read these devices... scary! We all love using social media as our go to for sharing our lives - for Birthdays, our children's first steps, our achievements (not to mention our countless culinary feats) and even Wedding photos. Its the quickest
At the beginning of August, I had an amazing opportunity to photograph with Simon Brettell for Ellie and Jack's Italian themed wedding. The wedding took place at Birmingham Register Office and then a second ceremony and reception at The Bond Company, Digbeth. I started off with Jack, his groomsmen and his cat at their home in Yardley Wood, then met up with Ellie and the rest of their wedding party at Birmingham Register Office. I sensed from the get go that this was going to
Holly and Alex were married at the incredible Shustoke Farm Barns in July 2015. Not only was I blessed with an amazing couple to photograph, I was given the opportunity to work with the talented Darren Gair Photography. Darren invited me along to photograph his couple and I had such a fun, rewarding day. I don't normally include so many photo's in my blog posts, but I found it really hard to cut down... everywhere I turned there was something beautiful to photgraph. Working w
Paul was kind enough to let me take a few shots of him as he unpacked his Wedding Photo Book for the first time. Together we worked on a layout that was clean and timeless - there are no jazzy borders or special effects in my Wedding Photo Books, we let the pictures speak for themselves. The design is for simplicity and elegance - I know most things go out of date quite quickly, but I want you to be able to enjoy these photo's in 20 years time. Nothing compares to a print, th
