December 2013 update: I'm no longer working as a photographer

In 2009, I launched a company that makes business software for photographers, and now that company is so successful that I've regretfully had to put my photography business on hold indefinitely. You can find out more about this change on my blog.

If you're looking for a photographer, I'm still in touch with many amazing photographers and would be delighted to recommend them to you if you contact me.

Country house hotel weddings - Nikki & Ed

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 25/05/2012

Nikki & Ed got married at Kilworth House, a lovely country house hotel in Leicestershire. They'd travelled all the way from Australia for their wedding here in England, and got everything you could want in an English wedding - a country house hotel and torrential rain.

Still, that's what the wet weather plan is for, and the conservatory at Kilworth House made a great venue for their wedding. Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from the day.

And, finally, it's not every day that the bride and groom get on stage and take their place in the band:

Kentwell Hall wedding photographs

Posted in Wedding Photography at 10:00 on 18/05/2012

Kentwell Hall is a magnificent Tudor mansion near the village of Long Melford in Suffolk. Although I've got faint memories of visiting Kentwell Hall on a fancy dress Elizabethan theme day when I was much, much younger, I don't have pictures of that so you'll have to make do with a great set of pictures from Natasha & Julian's wedding day instead!

Natasha & Julian got married in the small village of Helions Bumpstead before heading to Kentwell Hall for their wedding reception. To preempt the questions that I'm hoping you'll want to ask as you're looking through these pictures: yes, that suit of armour was scary in real life; yes, that final picture is lit only by fireworks.

Here's a selection of my favourite photographs from Natasha & Julian's wedding at Kentwell Hall in Suffolk.

Hindu wedding ceremonies - Pratheeban & Ruth

Posted in Wedding Photography at 12:00 on 11/05/2012

Pratheeban & Ruth are having two wedding ceremonies, one a Hindu ceremony in London and another taking place at Great Wilbraham Hall in Cambridgeshire. I'll be posting more pictures from their Hindu wedding ceremony in the near future (spoiler: there's quite a lot of colour) but here's one shot that caught my eye - here's Pratheeban arriving for the ceremony.

Bridal preparations photos - Nikki & Ed's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 12:00 on 08/05/2012

Along with the ceremony and speeches, bridal preparations are one of my favourite parts of any wedding day. Photographing the bridal preparations is a great way of building up to the main event of the day, and adds a huge amount to the narrative of the final gallery of pictures that I present to my clients.

This shot was taken at Nikki & Ed's wedding at Kilworth House in Leicestershire. I'll post some more pictures from their wedding in the near future, but this one stood out as a great example of what I love about photographing bridal preparations on a wedding day - it's a simple, still moment taken in a situation where I've got the time and space to try a few different ideas.
