Sonal & Tom, a Bradbourne House Wedding

When you're editing a wedding, and you're smiling. Constantly. Yeah, that.

I can't say enough good things about Sonal and Toms wedding, it was basically perfect! From the minute I got there and feeling 100% welcome to the most unbelievably glorious sunset at Bradbourne House. Us photographers (I've said before) are at the mercy of 2 things on a wedding day - the people, and the weather. When the people are all having a great time and the skies are delivering, it's just the perfect combo to allow me to shoot the kind of photography that I love to deliver. 

I could of course tell you about how awesome Sonal and Tom looked, but you can see that in the photos! (sorry Sonal, you looked amazing but I have to comment on Toms hair - literally perfect!!) 

I could also tell you about Bradbourne House, which once again provided the most beautiful backdrop to a wedding. The sunset we were gifted was next level orange magnificence! I was literally like a kid in a sweet shop!! But again, hopefully the photos tell that story better.

Oh, and yes, Sonal threw her bouquet over a Ferrari. 

It was a genuine pleasure to be there, I cant say enough good things about this day! Now look at the photos please

8 from Amy & Will, a Hayne House Wedding

Lucky ol' me got to to Hayne House again! This time to be part of Amy & Wills beer fuelled day (Shepherd Neame of course, no other refreshment will do!) 

And I loved it. The wedding that is. Not the beer.... tho I may have had one. It was hot ok! Honestly, Hayne is the perfect place for a chilled Saturday in the sun. One of my highlights was actually the unplanned moment when the speeches moved outside to finish due to a slight overrun in the schedule! But you see, it was a lovely evening, and made for a perfect moment. Personally I'd have all speeches outside on a summers evening.

Ok, I'm rambling. I loved it. Will and Amy are a beautiful thing. And here is their 8 from!

Villa Cipressi in Lake Como

So yeah, I went to to Lake Como to shoot the wedding of Terri and Oli! And wow, it's alright out there eh! Even the epic thunder storms on Thursday and Friday were cool! Luckily tho, except for about 40 minutes just after the ceremony, they had perfect skies on the Saturday and the wedding was beautiful, overlooking the lake. A genuine privilege to be part of something so incredible!

Here's the 8 from, soooooo many more to follow!

Massive congratulations to Kerry and James who chose June 24th 2017 as the day to get married after 9 years together at the lovely Hayne House in Kent! Surrounded by their best friends and family they had a fantastic day in spite of the weather. (us Brits know how to get on with life when the weather is against us!)

As ever I was there from around 10am to capture some of the flavour and fun of the morning,all the way through until the first dance, finishing with a few photos of Kerry dancing with her dad.

Congratulations to you both, and heres's your 8 from!

Saturday saw me take a drive to Southend(ish!) for the wedding of Hayley & James, which took place at Creeksea Place Barns. And from the minute I got to Hayleys parents as was instantly offered a cuppa I knew it would be a cool day. It's the little things that make us photographers happy bunnies! 

Massive congrats to you both, and here's your first "8 from..."

A Kent Wedding at Marleybrook House

I have sooooo much love for Karen and Dan's day, it really was immense! Totally relaxed, a beautiful venue (if you haven't heard of or seen Marleybrooks then where have you been???), old school fairground rides and pastries on tap in the morning. Doesn't get better than that. 

Karen got ready at the most gorgeous local barn with all of her family, and an amazing view too! I was greeted with coffee and pastries, which always makes a photographer feel happy! Even the music was on point. 

Luckily the guests were well looked after with drinks on the day, as it was a scorcher. Obviously I had to have one beer. Would've been rude not to right?

Then there was the Victorian fairground, which was ruddy awesome! Karen made me go on the big spinny one, which I thought would have me throwing up! But I was ok, and laughed my arse off!!

Oh, one final point - Karen & Dan scrubbed up ok. Genuinely lovely humans and it was a privilege to be there!

Here's 8, many more to come...

Stacey + Dean, an Italian Wedding

Villa Baroncino, Tuscany: a Destination Wedding in Italy

I happily admit that Italy is one of my favourite places. I went there in 1998, loved the place. The language, the architecture, the food, the football! It's just a beautiful place to be.

So getting the chance to finally shoot a wedding there, and return after 19 years, was a dream come true. And it didn't disappoint. I had an amazing time shooting Stacey and Deans wedding, and would do it all over again if I could! 

In the morning, a little bit of paddle boarding...

Then back to Villa Baroncino for the main event!

And then the final day of chillin. Such an awesome week!

Kellie & Adam, an Old Kent Barn Wedding

What makes me happy? Good weather and venue? Yeah of course! Throw in nice food and couple of glasses of the red stuff and we're definitely getting there. But the thing that ices the cake is..... the people at a wedding. And that's not just the bride and groom. Ok, so obviously I want them to be awesome, and luckily Kellie & Adam tick that box, but it's also the guests, the relatives, the friends and family. Good people looking their best and having a great time just makes me one happy photographer. 

Add all of that together, and you've got Kellie & Adams wedding. Basically perfect!

Charlie and Mark are a combined crazy level 10, which as far as I'm concerned is pretty awesome. Because they have cool family, cool friends and everything on the day was just kinda awesome. Which means I have lots to photograph!

Thanks for your crazy, and here are 6 from your day!

Louise and Greig, Winters Barns Wedding

A lovely intimate day at one of my favourite places to shoot, and some rather tasty macaroons - there are worse ways to spend your day! Winters Barns never fails to deliver, I had a fantastic day shooting this wedding. Some lovely guests and a father of the bride who looked so incredibly proud of his daughter.

Congratulations to these two, and here are 6 from their day...

April 2017 and I finally get the chance to go back to Italy for the first time in 19 years, and for the most incredible reason: to shoot Stacey and Deans wedding at Villa Baroncino.

Incredible. Amazing. Throw whatever superlative at it that you want to, it was everything they could've wanted it to be and more.

Engagement Shoot in Kent

So I'm shooting these guys wedding at the Old Kent Barn in a few months. But before that they wanted some photos at one of their favourite spots in Kent. And they brought a cute little friend along to join in the fun!

Cortona

Before the wedding ceremony at Villa Baroncino Stacey and Dean had the small matter of signing the official paper work in the the beautiful hillside town of Cortona. Narrow streets, sun, just a standard and unbelievably gorgeous Italian town.

Made a pretty nice backdrop to some pre-wed photos too.

It's a pretty damn cool thing when a guy you've known for about 22 years asks you to shoot his wedding, in the town you've both lived in the whole time, and the reception is back at his cool bar (The Taphouse in Deal, check it out!)

I'm shooting Jess and Simons wedding this year, which is cool.

So they wanted a few shots before with Hugo, their awesome and incredibly enthusiastic dog. We met up at Kingsdown beach in Kent, and spent an hour getting a few shots, had a coffee, then got a few more. And I kinda think they may even have enjoyed it! 

I love photography. I love photographing nice people. And I love dogs!

London Wedding, Londesborough Pub Wedding in Stoke Newington

I'm sure I've mentioned somewhere else, but I love a London wedding. I think it's the freedom you get with being out in the streets, there's no plan, just working off your instincts and reacting on the day. Love it.

Hannah and James got married at Stoke Newington Town Hall with the idea of us getting a few photos on the short walk to the Londeborough Pub just around the corner where the reception as to be held. 

And so that's what we did. Hannah and James wanted minimal fuss. So we kept the photos short and sweet. Because to them it was more important to spend that time with their friends and family.

Honestly, this day was a blast, the Londesborough is a seriously cool, just check out that STRIP sign.

Laura and Anthony, Kent Wedding at High Rocks

Laura and Anthony are a bit rebellious. They didn't want the recommended photographers, they wanted me. Laura was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Nat & Nick, a wedding I shot last year you see, so I met them for a coffee and discovered that she was marrying a guy that quite frankly anyone could be mates with! And yesterday I was there to shoot a pretty damn beautiful wedding in Kent. Here are my first 6 to share. Plenty more to follow!

Getting married? Want a photographer who will simply get involved, put no pressure on you to perform and (hopefully!) deliver some pretty cool shots? Get in touch here
