Marcelle + Lukas

After photographing their very glamorous engagement party on the walkways above Tower Bridge, I was expecting similar glamour at Marcelle and Lukas’ wedding at the family home in Essex. It goes without saying that I wasn’t disappointed, from the Vera Wang...

Sally + Paul

The first of two-in-a-row at Rutland Water for me, and Sally and Paul had chosen a campsite on the south shore with some amazing views, helped by weather that just got better and better as the day went on. The ceremony at All Saints Church in Stamford got proceedings...

Miranda + Jonathan

As my great record for sunny September Saturdays rolled on, I found myself in the village of Bolton Percy near York for Miranda & Jonathan’s wedding. They were the proud owners (well, for a week anyway) of the first Tentipi I’ve seen for many a year,...

Kate + Tom

What’s a wedding without a wedding ceremony? Well I found out at Kate & Tom’s wedding celebration. (The answer is all the fun of a wedding without the stressful bit!) The happy couple wanted to have their big day on Kate’s parents’ farm in...

Alex + Sam

Another DIY wedding, and Alex and Sam even had their ceremony at Alex’s mum’s house! Not the legal ceremony obviously. That happened at the register office during the week, but they just had two friends as witnesses so that their home ceremony felt like...

Rowena + Mark

With extra holidays for the Diamond Jubilee, the first week of June was always going to be busy. I was facing five weddings in nine days, all as different as the next. First up was Row and Mark’s DIY wedding at Row’s family home in Devon. I’ve done a...

Lucy + Evan

This wedding featured what is fast becoming my annual boat trip on the river Thames. Lucy had been a bridesmaid at Sarah & Morgan’s wedding just down the road near Henley in 2009, and it was good to be working with familiar faces. Following preparations...
Annabel + Tristam

Annabel + Tristam

Annabel and Tristam chose the chocolate box village of Castle Combe in Wiltshire as the location for their wedding. Of course it helped that Annabel’s parents live there and had access to a large field behind their house for the marquee! After getting ready at...

Lois + Peter

From a local wedding, to one miles and miles away! After spending many months landscaping the huge garden at their home near Salisbury, Lois and Peter (yes ‘Family Guy’ fans, Lois and Peter!) were ready to host their own wedding reception. Lois got ready...

Andi + Sam

It’s been a while since I posted (again) so there’s some catching up to do (again). Andi & Sam joined a growing list of my couples who were married by one of their parents, as Sam’s dad is the vicar at St. Johns Church in Woodbridge. After the...

Beth + Lachlan

Beth’s family home just to the west of Gloucestershire was the setting for her wedding to Lachlan, and after raining heavily for most of the night before, the weather was actually fairly kind to them on the day. The locals came out in force to help with the big...

Louise + Nathan

My blog has been a bit quiet just lately, but I’m back in full effect today with Louise and Nathan’s brill wedding. Louise’s family home was the setting, with a marquee squeezed onto the lawn and weather that was perfect for drinks outside (we...

Hayley + Pascal

Pascal’s family home in North Yorkshire provided the venue for his marriage to Hayley. A few preview...

Justine + Sebastian

A marquee and a hog roast in a family garden for Justine and Sebastian, following their wedding ceremony in Madley parish church in...
