Batch Country House Wedding Photography – Matt and Soushila

Batch Country House Wedding Photography – Matt and Soushila

Soushi had earlier informed me that after the first dance there would be some traditional Mauritian wedding entertaiment known as Sega dancing. My initial thoughts conjured images of Sonic the Hedgehog doing the Cha Cha, but this, as you may imagine, was far from the truth. In fact Sega dancing invloves a man banging a wooden drum whilst three agile young ladies twist and gyrate in a fusion of flamenco and salsa. Not a hedgehog in sight….

Channels Golf Club Wedding Photography – Alan and Rachel

Channels Golf Club Wedding Photography – Alan and Rachel

When Alan rang me last year and asked me to photograph his wedding I was delighted. Not just because he and Rachel’s wedding sounded wonderful, but also because I photographed his brother Richard’s wedding a few years previously, and it was one of my most enjoyable to date. Their chosen venue was Channels Golf Club in Essex, with the ceremony to be held in the beautifully rustic Essex Barn.

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography – Sarah-Jane and Eugene

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography – Sarah-Jane and Eugene

Every once in a while I get to photograph a wedding that is not only beautiful, but also truly unique. When Sarah-Jane and Eugene booked me to shoot their wedding at Smeetham Hall Barn in Suffolk, I knew it would be something really special. Sarah-Jane has an amazing eye for design and detail, and she really expressed this in her styling, inspired by her love of the 1930’s and 40’s.

Jim and Laura – London Engagement Shoot

My first wedding of 2013 will be in The Orangery at Turkey Mill in Maidstone, a beautiful purpose built venue and to say that I’m excited is an understatement! What makes it even more amazing is that the groom, Jim, is a good friend of mine and when he and Laura asked me to be their Turkey Mill Wedding Photographer, I was absolutley thrilled.

A Beautiful Surrey Wedding at White Hart Barn, Godstone

A Beautiful Surrey Wedding at White Hart Barn, Godstone

In July this year I photographed the beautiful wedding of Paul and Nicola Lindley at St Nicholas Church in Godstone, Surrey. After the ceremony the guests took a lakeside stroll to the reception at the historic White Hart Barn, where they were treated to a wonderful vintage tea party complete with antique china, delicious cupcakes and an array of pastries.

The Societies Convention 2012 – What a Week- Two SWPP Awards!

Since I joined the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers last September I had been looking forward to attending their annunal convention at the Novotel in Hammermsith. The convention is a week long event incorporating talks, classes and workshops from some of the best photographers in the world, as well as a trade show and an annual awards dinner (more on that later). So with my tickets booked, redbull packed and notebook ready, I braced myself for four days of photography heaven. And I wasn’t disappointed..

Rich and Jemma -Manor of Groves, Sawbridgeworth

Rich and Jemma’s wonderful September wedding took place at the beautiful Manor of Groves in Sawbridgeworth. Sawbridgeworth is also home to “Beckingham Palace”, David and Victoria’s original country residence, but on this occasion there was only room for one celebrity couple and Rich and Jemma more than fitted the bill.
