Tonight on the blog is Maddy and Rob’s Winchester Cathedral Refectory wedding. Everything from the weather to all the details were spot on, Maddy got ready in the conservatory of the most stunning town house. The glass ceiling made it perfect to get beautifully lit shots of her and her bridesmaid getting ready.

The ceremony was at Winchester Guildhall which is where I met Rob a short while before it began. After the ceremony the newlyweds and their guests all walked to the Cathedral’s Refectory where a marquee was waiting in the garden for their reception. The garden is contained by the cities historic walls overlooked by the Cathedral itself.

After dinner and some heartfelt and hilarious speeches everyone moved into the Refectory restaurant for the party and danced the night away!

Thanks for having me guys! Hope you’re all doing really well!

Carla and Pete had a wonderful marquee wedding at Parley Manor, located in Chichester, it’s a stunning venue, close to Bournemouth and the New Forest. Their marquee there is very grand and opens out onto the very well kept gardens.

Carla and Pete had a very emotional ceremony, it was mainly Pete struggling to hold it together! This was followed by drinks in the gardens before heading into the marquee for dinner. The speeches were full of laughs and even a rap from the chief bridesmaid!

I had an awesome day capturing the action, thanks again guys for having me!

On the blog today is Jane and Mike’s awesome Winchester wedding! I really enjoy shooting weddings in Winchester, I grew up nearby so know the town really well and it’s full of venues steeped in character and history. The best bit is it is usually just a short walk between hotel, ceremony and reception and the journey from one place to another can make for some really great photos, getting a bit of street photography into the mix.

Jane and Mike wanted a very relaxed and simple day so got ready together at the Hotel Du Vin where we did a quick couple shoot before they enjoyed a glass of wine. Then it was a short walk to the cities registry office which is set inside the Great Hall, a very grand building which makes you feel like it’s hundreds of years in the past even as you walk around outside. Here they met with their friends and family who had come to help them celebrate.

After the ceremony all the guests walked with Jane and Mike to the reception at the Green Man Pub, again a really traditional building but it was made even more special by the styling and really tasty looking cake!

Maddy and Rob Pre Wedding Shoot

Maddy and Rob Pre Wedding Shoot

On the blog tonight is Maddy and Rob’s Brighton engagement shoot. A location I had been very much looking forward to having the chance to shoot at. I like as much as possible to do pre-wedding shoots in the evening when the sun is low in the sky and gives off really warm, soft light, which is known in the trade as ‘golden hour’. However we opted for an early morning session as we thought it would be less busy and it payed off.

Maddy and Rob are a super cool couple and Brighton had lots of opportunities for great shots, they even brought along their beautiful 1 month old baby girl, Sienna. something on my photographer bucket list is to shoot a wedding in Brighton so if you’re planning one and looking for a photographer why not get in touch…

Finally getting back to blogging with Kerry and Aaron’s wedding at East Horton Golf Club with their reception in it’s beautiful Greenside Barn. I had shot at East Horton a few times before but never been in the barn which really is great with its wooden beams and rustic feel.

It was a super chilled day at the twilight of the Summer, guests could spill out of the barn onto the patio and overlook the golf course as the sun set before everyone headed in for the party!

Thanks again guys for having me!

Long time no see

I have been rather quiet on the blog front for a while as back in August we welcomed a new addition to the family, our beautiful daughter Norah, she has settled in really well and we are trying to savour every moment as time seems to be flying by.

Hayley & Lee had an awesome New Forest wedding at the Moorhill House Hotel. Their ceremony was outdoors which is not only a great match for a shining sun but it also means I can move around a lot and get lots of interesting angles of what's going on. The grounds also made for lots of fun photos after the formalities and there was plenty of space for kids to burn off some steam!

I unfortunately had to shoot early in the evening as my wife was taken in to hospital (nothing too serious fortunately!) so the awesome Natalie Takes Photos took my place and finished off the photography duties on my behalf, some of the images below are hers and thanks again Natalie for helping me out!
