Earlier in the month, I announced two new professional photography seminars. The early bird booking discount for my post-production seminar in Cambridge ends on Tuesday, so you've got less than 48 hours to take advantage of it.
Clare & Alastair are getting married in Cambridgeshire later on this year, but we took advantage of the summer weather for their engagement portrait session here in Cambridge. Here's a selection of my favourite photographs from their portrait session.
The Barbican Centre in London holds lots of fond memories for me, mostly from the many visits my parents took me along for while I was growing up. I don't get to visit The Barbican Centre as much as I used to, so I was delighted to photograph Leonora & Luke's wedding reception there. Their reception took place in the large conservatory of The Barbican Centre, which is a spectacular space. More pictures will follow next week, but in the meantime here's one of Leonora & Luke arriving there after their wedding ceremony at St Etheldreda's Church in the City of London.
Lots of the weddings that I photograph take place in London and give me a chance to visit exciting new venues and parts of town. Rachel & Alastair's wedding took me back to Hampstead for their wedding ceremony at Christ Church, followed by their reception at the nearby Kenwood House. I'll be posting more pictures from their wedding in Hampstead next week, but for now here's one that caught my eye while working on their wedding photographs.
Helen and Jörg got married at the lovely Downing College here in Cambridge and managed to pick a wedding date that dodged the strange weather we've been having here this summer. Downing College is one of the many Cambridge colleges that responds really well to sunlight - the old sandstone looks amazing in the sun.
But enough talk about the weather from me. Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from Helen & Jörg's wedding at Downing College in Cambridge.

Unlike the bride & groom, I don't have a PhD in chemistry and my A-level chemistry probably isn't going to help me work out whether the formulae on the cake are genuine:
A balloon release or an attempt to recreate Up? It would be an interesting way of going on honeymoon.
