  • Oxford College Pre-Wedding Shoot

  • Lan and Yao's Oxford college pre-wedding shoot was a first for me. It included not one, but two Oxford colleges! Lan studied at Wadham College and Yao at St John's, so we visited both and a few fabulous locations in between for their photos. Lan and Yao got married at Danesfield House last year. I'll be sh[...]
  • Best Wedding Photos 2017

  • I'm looking forward to the New Year but am a little sad to say goodbye to 2017 as it's been such an amazing year.

  • Stoke Newington Wedding - Mayling and Tristan

  • Mayling and Tristan's Stoke Newington Wedding took place at St Mary's Church with the reception just over the road at Stoke Newington Town Hall. Mayling, her mum and her bridesmaids all got ready at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. The hotel has the most amazing staircase, so I had to use that for some portraits of Ma[...]
  • Little Venice Pre Wedding Shoot

  • Charlotte and Niranjan had a Little Venice Pre Wedding Shoot. It was a perfect location, such a beautiful place and so many fabulous spots for their photos. We met up at 8am on a Sunday morning for the pre wedding shoot. Starting at that time meant we virtually had the whole area to ourselves. Little Venice is a ver[...]
  • Rivervale Barn Wedding - Jenny and Sam

  • Jenny and Sam's Rivervale Barn wedding took place on a beautiful day back in July. It was one of those fantastic weddings with such a lovely couple, a stunning venue and so much going on that it kept me busy from the moment I arrived for Jenny's preparations right through into the evening party. This wedding brought to[...]
  • Great Fosters Wedding - Sophie and Steve

  • Sophie and Steve's Great Fosters wedding took place in August. The weather was very changeable throughout the day, bright sun one moment and then a heavy rain shower the next. Fortunately they had a very relaxed schedule and Great Fosters has lovely spots for photographs both inside and out. After a few scene settin[...]
  • Greenwich Pre Wedding Shoot - Mayling and Tristan

  • Mayling and Tristan had a Greenwich pre wedding shoot. It's their favourite part of London so we made sure we fitted in lots of iconic Greenwich landmarks in their photos. We knew we'd probably be dodging some showers during the session. When the rain was light we kept going with Mayling and Tristan keeping dry unde[...]
  • Sophie and Steve's Virginia Water Pre Wedding Shoot

  • After a super busy summer wedding season it's now time for me to get back to blogging regularly again. I'm kicking this off with Sophie and Steve's Virginia Water pre wedding shoot. Most of my couples find a pre wedding (or engagement) shoot a great way to have a practice run at the couple portraits before their weddin[...]
  • St Aldates Wedding - Charlotte and Pete

  • Charlotte and Pete's St Aldates wedding took place back in July. The day began with Charlotte getting ready at the Oxford Spires Hotel. It was all very relaxed and really set the tone for the whole day. The ceremony was filled with some of the most enthusiastic and joyful singing I've ever heard at a wedding and you co[...]
  • Niroosha and Matthew - Mayfair and Knightsbridge Wedding

  • Day 2 of Niroosha and Matthew's celebrations was their Mayfair and Knightsbridge wedding. The ceremony itself took place at Farm Street Church in the heart of London's Mayfair. This was followed by the reception at the very fabulous The Berkeley in Knightsbridge. I was again joined by my colleague Gemma, just as I w[...]
  • Niroosha and Matthew - Oshwal Centre Hindu Wedding

  • Day 1 of Niroosha and Matthew's celebrations was their Oshwal Centre Hindu Wedding. My friend and talented photographer Gemma Kelly joined us for the day. This meant that while I began in Kent with Niroosha for her initial preparations, Gemma could photograph Matthew getting ready with his family in Middlesex. We then [...]
  • Jenny and Matt - Stokes Farm Barn Wedding

  • Jenny and Matt got married at St Paul's Church Wokingham and had their reception just up the road at the very lovely Stokes Farm Barn. The weather was pretty much perfect with clear blue skies for most of the day. I really enjoyed photographing this one. There were a lot of laughs, bubbles instead of confetti at the[...]
