I consider myself lucky that my wedding photography clients provide me with an enormous amount of variety in my work. Even when I photograph weddings in the same venue, my clients never fail to bring their own personal touches to the day that makes each and every wedding I've ever photographed stick out in my memory.
Sinead & Jim were married at Burgh House in Hampstead by a pair of the nicest registrars I've ever had the pleasure of working with. They then took a old double-decker Routemaster bus to The Union Club in Soho. If you take a look at my blog archives then you'll find another wedding featuring a big red bus and The Union Club but it's such a quirky venue that I'm sure I could photograph dozens of weddings there and never capture the same atmosphere twice.
Here's a selection of my favourite images from the day. It's been hard to narrow them down, so you'll have to forgive the fact that there's slightly more than usual!

Last weekend's wedding was my first winter wedding of the year. Jacqui & Andy got married at the lovely Yaxley Hall, which is on the border between Suffolk and Norfolk. It's the second time I've been there, but my last visit was last summer so it was great working there under completely different lighting and weather conditions.
Without further ado, here's a selection of my favourite pictures from the day.

The Cambridge University Press bookshop on the corner of Trinity Street and King's Parade is the oldest bookshop site in the country, so it was a pleasure to be asked photograph it after its recent refurbishment. While the bookshop still retains its large catalogue of academic titles, its new look makes it a more approachable place for its other audiences, such as English language students and tourists.

My blog has been a bit quiet over the last few weeks, but that certainly doesn't mean that I've had a quiet life. In fact, I think I've been busier than ever before, adding a series of seminars for wedding photographers to the normal mixture of wedding photography and commercial shoots!
I'll be posting some of my recent photographic work in the next couple of days, but first a quick update on my seminars…
I'm two weeks into my three-week tour and everything's gone brilliantly. This is my first series of seminars, so I've been overwhelmed by all of the positive feedback and enthusiastic responses.
The course is aimed at photographers who have either just started out as wedding photographers or are thinking about getting into the market, but it's been fascinating to meet a real mixture of photographers coming along to my seminars and hearing about what they got out of them. I've had everyone from amateur photographers who are looking for guidance before they shoot their first wedding through to full-time wedding photographers looking for new ideas, plus a good selection of photographers who are already working in other genres and thinking about adding wedding photography to their already successful businesses.
Talking to all of the photographers who have been coming along has definitely been the highlight of the tour and I'm looking forward to meeting even more people at next week's seminars. There are still some tickets left for the Bristol and Birmingham dates, so follow the links below if you'd like to come along:
Tuesday 11 November: Bristol
Thursday 13 November: Birmingham
Finally, here are a few pictures to stop this from becoming another text-only blog post!
Did I mention that the feedback has been good?
