Just to get this straight - wedding photography is really important. Its important for many reasons, not least because of the matter of longevity and being able to share your memories with your family for years, it is also important because it is essentially a curated gallery of your nearest and dearest on one of the most important days of your life.

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.

I was asked by Silverstar Photographic to help out on their wedding, as Michelle and Rich from Silverstar were then expecting (and now have) a beautiful baby boy! Thanks for having me along Silverstar and congratulations on your new arrival. Amy and Matt were such a pleasure to be around, so kind and friendly, there was so much
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.
