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.

Longstowe Hall wedding photos - Holly & Gavin's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 31/08/2012

Longstowe Hall is one of my favourite wedding venues, so I was delighted to be asked to photograph Holly & Gavin's wedding there. While this summer's wet weather meant that the planned outdoor ceremony was replaced at the last minute with one inside the lovely hall itself, a few showers couldn't put a dampener on a wedding in such a great venue and with such a vibrant collection of guests.

Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from Holly & Gavin's wedding at Longstowe hall in Cambridgeshire, starting off with Holly's preparations in the bridal cottage in the grounds of the hall…

Giving the bride away

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 24/08/2012

Wedding ceremonies are full of wonderful moments, and photographing them without distracting anyone makes them both challenging and rewarding. This is one of my favourite photographs from Holly & Gavin's wedding at Longstowe Hall - the moment when the father of the bride steps in to give away his daughter at the start of the wedding ceremony.

Essex wedding photographer - Caroline & Neil's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 17/08/2012

Caroline & Neil's wedding took me back to Saffron Walden in Essex, which is very close to the village that I grew up in. They got married at the wonderful St Mary's Church in Saffron Walden, before heading to their wedding reception in a marquee in Essex.

Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from Caroline & Neil's wedding in Essex.

Confetti throwing at weddings

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 10/08/2012

Weddings are full of moments that just couldn't be the same if they were scripted or posed, such as anything involving confetti. I can never predict where it's going to go (have you ever tried to throw the stuff yourself?), who it's going to hit, how they're going to react, etc, etc. It's moments like this confetti throwing photo from Caroline & Neil's wedding that make me love the stuff, even if I find myself picking bits out of my camera bag weeks later.

Cambridgeshire weddings - Claire & Peter

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 03/08/2012

When you've photographed a lot of weddings, it's always interesting to think back to particular weddings and see what stands out in your memory - after all, it's the differences that stick in the memory. For Claire & Peter's wedding in Cambridgeshire, I'm willing to bet that it's going to be the fact that Claire's horse turned up as a surprise guest at the wedding reception.

Claire & Peter got married in Brampton in Cambridgeshire, with a church service in the village followed by a wedding reception in a marquee in their beautiful garden. Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from their wedding day.
