The story of Peter and Charlene’s beautiful Wasing Park wedding.
The story of Farnaz and Paul’s London wedding at The Refinery.
The exchange of the wedding rings is an extremely significant moment of the wedding day, but it can also be quite a challenging part of the day to photograph.
It has been suggested that creating great shots on a wedding day is partly down to luck. For me there’s no substitute for being in the right place at the right time.
Deborah and Mike’s Tithe Barn wedding took place on May 4th, which just so happens to be national Star Wars day. Now I’d be lying if I said that a small part of me (ok, a big part of me) wasn’t secretly hoping for a Star Wars themed wedding…
I like to begin the story by photographing both hair and makeup as these are both important parts of the preparations. However, a real pivotal moment in the bride’s day is the moment she steps into her wedding dress.
The story of Kavita and Matt’s Islington Town Hall wedding.
Heavily posed portraits are a little counterintuitive to the way I approach the rest of the day – I don’t create the moments I prefer to capture them when they happen – so any portraits that I may take will be very relaxed indeed, often simply following the couple as they take a short walk around the venue or surrounding areas.
When photographing weddings I like to push myself to deliver something unique. Unconventional wedding photography. Things that perhaps another photographer wouldn’t see or capture.
I’m not there to control the events of the day, I’d much rather document what I see happening before me.
The most intimate of London weddings.
A wedding is an emotional day, and not just for the bride and groom. It’s also an emotional day for the father of the bride. I can’t begin to imagine how proud a father must feel on this day; seeing his daughter looking the happiest and most beautiful she has ever looked in her life.
A fantastic ‘toy themed’ wedding at Bijou’s stunning Botleys Mansion in Surrey.
These bridal preparations at Ston Easton Park Hotel were a lovely couple of hours to photograph. Extremely calm and relaxed, it was just Deborah, her two bridesmaids and I for most of the morning. Until Kevin arrived. Kevin is one of Deborah’s very good friends and he was given the honour of giving her away…
Working with the available natural light allows me to remain discreet, without bursts of flash alerting my presence to all and sundry. But more importantly than this, it allows me to capture the true mood and ambience of a scene so that viewers might really feel what it was like to be there at that precise moment.
I love a winter wedding, especially around Christmas time so I was absolutely delighted when Sophia and Nick asked me to join them at St Audries Park to capture their wedding day. Even the wet weather couldn’t put a dampener on things and the whole day was full of love and laughter. Click on the picture to see more from this wonderful winter wedding.
