Hannah + Ben - a Winters Barns Wedding

I was tempted to write some terribly cheesy thing about Winters Barns being the final frontier. But I won't.... that being said, I've never had a backdrop so incredible for a wedding!

PS, Hannah is a bit of a space enthusiast to say the least...

August 1st.... "This is now my 10th year since I shot my first wedding, and honestly, it still amazes me how you go from starting the year looking forward to all the cool weddings ahead of you to OMG it's August! So far it's been an amazing year, I'm having more fun than ever doing what I do. Here's one from Saturday that I am incredibly proud of. The brides father. Many more images to follow, cheers!"

Hey hey, so I thought about writing a summary of my photographic 2015, but to be honest that would take a lonnnnng time! So, rather than that, I thought I'd do it in list fashion. So, in one big paragraph of words, I give you 2015 thus far..

Roulette, an Aston Martin DB5, smoke grenades, dancing, laughing, a tractor ride, a dance floor pyramid, dance offs (many, many dance offs), cake, cheese, cheese cakes, beautiful brides and stylish grooms, happy kids, grumpy kids, crazy kids, shy kids, rally driving (getting from a to c via b in 5 minutes around country lanes!), the M20, the M2, late nights, early mornings, coffee, coffee and more coffee, a vineyard, churches, barns, a Nepalese wedding, colour, beard stroking, selfies, selfies with cars, selfies with drunk people, confetti, a new suit, delays (Jess, lol), salmon & cream cheese bagels, editing, sharing, Instagramming.... and lots more coffee!

It's been soooo amazing, and it's only just begun. As a photographer you're at the mercy of what happens on the day, so thank you to everyone, especially the guests and of course, the couples who have booked me!

Choosing a favourite is impossible...

Like the title says, it's impossible. I have many favourites for all manor of different reasons. But, for pure self indulgence I'm going to choose  a photo that stands out for me, for the simple reason that I love what's going on in it! The kids, they just don't care! :D

Taken from Katie & Marks wedding, 4th August, 2014

Oh look, it's me...

It was recently made aware to me that my website lacked something that allowed you to really get to know me (well, as much about me as you can get from a website!). After all, how can you really even start to know me if you can't see me? (Not that we should ever judge books by their covers of course!) Still, it was a valid point. So here I am!

Rock my Wedding feature! Rebecca + Will

Sunday 16th March 2014

Great to see a wedding I shot last summer be featured on Love My Dress recently. Go take a look!

2013 was a huge year for me. In my 7th year as a photographer, I had the opportunity to open my studio and fulfil the "full time" photography dream.

I shot 30+ weddings, had so much fun, met so many nice people and have so many special memories. The life of a wedding photographer is pretty cool to be honest!

So, I decided to celebrate the year with a slideshow. Turn the sound up, because it's all about the beat,
