8 from Hannah & Ben, a Cambridgeshire Wedding

A Trinity College Wedding

Hey hey, so it is that the seasons change, and with the memories of a wedding during the beast from the east still fresh in my mind, I suddenly find myself in the incredible grandeur of Trinity College in Cambridgeshire on a blazing hot day for the wedding of Hannah and Ben! Us photographers certainly have to learn how to adapt!

And while it may seem cliche to say that this was an awesome wedding, it REALLY was. So you know me, I'm not one for too much fluffy, I just love shooting people, it's that simple. Hannah and Ben were awesome, incredibly relaxed, a pleasure to be around. And yeah, that's what matters to me. No stress, no drama, just a whole load of people enjoying a genuinely lush day of celebration.

Oh, and before I sign off, I have to mention the choir. Now I'm not one for choir music as my "go to" on Spotify, but seriously, it was hairs standing up on the back of your neck stuff. Incredible.

Hannah and Ben, this one's for you!

8 from Jody and Harry, a South Farm Wedding

So Jody and Harry got married didn't they! A very relaxed day at South Farm, one of the coolest venues ever, mainly because their are really really cute farm animals everywhere!! But anyway, back to the wedding.... oh, and there was also a REALLY cool Dodge!! Oh, but back to the wedding..... :D 

Jody and Harry are just so incredibly lovely and spent the day looking just so happy and content - there's not much more I could ask for tbh.

Massive congrats to them, and here's their 8 from!

Paris & Rick, a Houchins Wedding

There was so much to love about this day. Where to start? Paris & Rick: basically perfect. Relaxed and just had a tonne of fun with the day. Houchins: damn, what a venue!! Awesome weather, awesome bridesmaids, awesome ushers, awesome food, awesome photos!

As per usual the day started at 10 with me joining the girls for a few photos, eating their breakfast snacks and drinking coffee! Priorities right? Thing is, it was such a lush friendly atmosphere to arrive to I just immediately felt comfortable enough to be me. And here's the thing: me turning up at 10 isn't just about taking endless photos of mascara being applied (who exactly wants that??). It's about me becoming part of the day. Because the only way you get documentary wedding photography is by making people feel comfortable with having you around. So I just turn up and be me.

The girls were getting ready at Houchins which meant a nice day for me: just turn up at the venue and you're set for the day. I'd never been to Houchins before so I had a quick scout about, sussed out the winning photo spots and then joined the girls.

After a few hours the guys turned up and I get the opportunity to make Rick sweat a little! To be honest, Rick was rock solid, no signs of nerves (hidden well?) and just happy to get things started!

At this point I feel it important to mention the award winning moment Paris almost stacked it. Fair play to her, she styled it out well and dad saved her from making a complete arse of herself! 

From here on in I think it best to let the photos do the rest. 

Sun, venue, couple... NO LISTS: just an awesome day for me to turn up and shoot. I couldn't ask for more as a photographer. Literally perfect!

Paris and Rick, this one's for you!

American girl meets English guy, they make an awesome team and a few years later you have this perfect mix that makes for an amazing day at one of the most fun places to get married in Kent: Marleybrook House.

Seriously, this was a day that a guy like me lives for - just a fun and crazy cool day in the sun, victorian fairground rides, drink, food, music, and dancing!

Above all this, what makes a wedding is the attitude you have towards the day. Arielle and Richard wanted to have fun. Fun was priority number one. Nothing else will do. And by going into the day with this attitude the day became what they wanted it to be. And by doing that it means I  can easily mix in and do my thing. 

And here is the first look 8 from!

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!
