Where do we stand now?

With the wedding industry almost grinding to a halt in the past few months I have been really moved by how well suppliers have all come together. Group after group have appeared on social media to support and offer advice whilst updating each other on government official states of play. The next few months will…

Uncertain Wedding

Many, many poor people have had to move they’re wedding day this year due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Now some people might think, well…

Is it Windy?

There was a phrase that was in constant use during my recent shoot in Mallorca. IS IT WINDY? On most of the days, my team and I battled up hills, mountains, even the beaches to capture portraits that had been spinning round in my head since I booked the flights.  The weather (not always guaranteed…

How to say goodbye

People come to me for portraits for many different reasons. But saying goodbye and celebrating a change in their life is probably the most familiar and rewarding. The lovely Sarah came to see me back in dark December wanting to do something a little more creative with her portraits. Her inspiration was as simple as…

The wonder of Winter Weddings

I’ve never understood why people don’t have more winter weddings. I live in England, and I adore Winter it is by far my favourite season.  It gives you all the opportunity to surround yourself with warmth. In the food you eat, the company you keep and of course in the literal sense of log fires…
