little theatre wedding in bath – amy & colin’s wedding slideshow


I thought I'd break with tradition here and instead of doing a regular old blog post with photographs I've decided to show you Amy and Colin's Little Theatre wedding slideshow from their big day in Bath. The Little Theatre is a cinema and makes an amazing wedding venue! Definitely something a bit different and [...]

an amazing osea island wedding


Right. Let me formulate my thoughts... Emma and Ally. Amazing couple. Just about the nicest, friendliest, loveliest pair you could really hope to meet, let alone photograph. Osea Island. Incredible atmosphere. It feels like you're stepping back in time. You're effectively stranded there during the day as you can only reach it via a tidal [...]

goldbrick house wedding – leigh and dave


Today's wedding is something special! Leigh and Dave booked me while they were living in Australia, so we chatted via email about their plans and visions for the day. They came back to the UK before their wedding and we got to meet up for an engagement shoot in Bristol which was really good fun. I think they [...]

great tythe barn wedding – katy and tim get married in tetbury


Another gorgeous summery wedding for you today - Katy and Tim's lovely wedding day at the Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury. Shortly after I arrived, Katy told me she wouldn't get teary when she opened her present from Tim. Hmmm. Never say never :) Present duly opened and tears dabbed away we got on with the getting [...]

my 2015


So. Here we are. The Christmas wrapping paper is being recycled, the decorations are put away and, for today at least, the sun has been shining outside at the start of a brand new year. Over the Christmas break I have been going through the thousands of pictures I took during 2015. 41,358 to be exact. And I've picked [...]

huntstile organic farm wedding


Helen and Gareth got married at Huntstile organic farm. It was awesome. There was singing, bubbles, pinatas, laughter, coconut shy action, balloon sculptures, welsh cakes (lots), more laughter, aprons, baking awards, chickens, tractors, champagne, speeches, even more laughter, a bit of wandering through fields and a lot of dancing. Two more infectiously happy people I [...]

fancy dress wedding in london – streatham and marlborough cricket club wedding


This was one of those days that almost defies explanation. Leah and Jon are an extraordinary couple - lovely, warm, generous and funny. And they decided to get married dressed as a giraffe and a penguin. This wedding was just all kinds of awesome. I don't know that I can really write much more than [...]

aldwick court farm wedding


A small preview from a gorgeous vineyard wedding at aldwick court farm at the weekend. Sara and Chris had an incredible day. I've not been able to blog much in the last... er... 6 months or so!! Thankfully it's not because I forgot the password to my website, but just because I've been too busy. But I do [...]

a goldney hall wedding – jo & will’s bristol wedding


Since April (when I last blogged - yikes) I've shot a lot of weddings, moved house, shot some more weddings and been to my sister's wedding! It's been great fun (except maybe the house moving bit) but I've been completely rubbish at showing you what I've been up to. So to make amends here is Jo [...]

Selfies at Weddings


Apparently 300 million pictures are uploaded to Facebook every day. 300 million. Every day. That means that every two minutes we take more photographs than the whole of humanity did in the 1800s. Who knows quite where this is going to lead, but it's definitely an interesting time for anyone who is involved in telling visual stories. [...]
