Crikey! I can’t believe I’ve only just got around to posting this wedding. Last May – yep, that’s right – May 2012, Rachel and Stuart were married at the beautiful Hillbark Hotel. Stepping in at the last minute to help out Matt Bowen, I headed over to shoot Stuart and his groomsmen getting ready. Like with most groom prep, when I arrived all the guys were nearly ready, which meant I mostly got to hang out in the pub watching them drink, dance, (yes, dance) and deal with sunburn…..
….with Rachel and Stuart both being music junkies, they named each table after different bands, and as Stuart couldn’t decide between them, he had two best men, which also meant two best man speeches…… all I can say is, I was giggling so much, I’m surprised I managed to hold my camera still to focus!
I know it’s a bit late (but better late then never, eh?)……
Also, a big thank you to Matt for having me along to shoot with him.
So here we are, 2012 is drawing to a close which can only mean one thing – my end of year review. I’ve had an amazing year and I’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic people on a range of equally fantastic projects. I’ve made some lovely new friends, and not just on Facebook and Twitter but in real life too! I know! I’ve also had the opportunity to be part of some amazing weddings and I’ve met some truly brilliant people. If I could high five everyone I’ve had the pleasure of working with this year, I would. But you’ll all have to settle for a virtual chest bump instead! Thanks for a brilliant year – I’m looking forward to working on some new projects in 2013 ! In no particular order, here is my year in images……Filed under: Commercial, Engagement, Fashion, Music, Personal, Photography, Pre-Wedding, Prom, Theatre, Weddings | Comments Off
On the 3rd November, after nearly 10 years together, Andrea and John tied the knot at The Ashes in Endon. By the time the ceremony took place, the rain had stopped and the weather was pretty much perfect. There were clear skies for most of the day, with a little bit of cloud floating over later on in the afternoon, and the whole day was filled with tears, laughter and big, big smiles!
Andrea was every bit the beautiful bride, and John made a very handsome groom – these guys were so made for each other! There were plenty of laughs throughout the speeches, and Johns version of the cake cutting was brilliant. It involved mashing it up with the knife – repeatedly! The reception was in full swing when I left, and I’m pretty sure the dancing went on well into the night.
Congratulations Andrea and John, thank you for asking me to photograph your wedding I wish you all the best for the future! xFiled under: Photography, Weddings | Comments Off

I can’t believe I haven’t got around to blogging this shoot yet! Back in April, along with a fantastic bunch of suppliers to the wedding industry, I was involved in a Jubilee themed bridal shoot. It was a fabulous day filled with gorgeous dresses, flowers, and cakes, not forgetting the stunning wedding car that also had it’s own chauffeur !Filed under: Photography, Portfolio, Weddings | Comments Off
There’s nothing I like better than getting out in the countryside, rambling up hills and taking in breathtaking sights. On Tuesday, I got to do just that with two amazing people – Andrea and John. They met 10 years ago, and in November they’re getting married at a gorgeous country house barn For their pre-wedding shoot we headed to one of their favourite places, The Cloud at Congleton, where we were met with strong winds and an amazing view!Filed under: Pre-Wedding, Weddings | Comments Off

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting alongside Sue Westwood-Ruttledge. I’ve never shot a military wedding before, so when Sue asked me to shoot the groom prep, I had no idea what to expect.Filed under: Weddings |
