Had such great fun in the Summer. Jade and Matt held their wedding at Christchurch Priory then followed it up with a reception at the Captains' Club, down by the river. From the Bridal prep in Poole, through the ceremony and the reception - it was brilliant. Smiles all around and hardly any nerves on show. With family and friends from across the world it was truly [...]

Bellissimo Weddings - cake!
As a wedding photographer, I get to meet up with lots of really nice people through the year. I'm not "just" talking about Brides, Grooms, their families and friends. I'm talking about other people in the wedding industry. Wedding vendors who I respect and admire. People who I can recommend to my clients. This morning was a chance for me to switch off from editing [...]

Julie and Mark asked me along to photograph their ceremony with Beach Weddings Bournemouth. They'd originally planned to have a family member photograph their ceremony but decided a few weeks before the wedding that they'd prefer to have a professional photographer document their day.

By the time that I got across to Poole for the Harbour Heights wedding of Claire and James the rain had stopped. The clouds started to break and the light improved. Gracious, we even had sun[...]

Why documentary wedding photography is vital to the success of your wedding
As a documentary wedding photographer, believe me when I say that it's the emotions and the interactions between your family and friends that makes your wedding unique. It's not about the details, that vintage tea-service you found and the hand-made bunting. It's about people and emotions - it really is that simple. So many people get caught up in the de[...]

Play or not? - I love this image
One of the things that I love about weddings is being able to shoot in a documentary style. When I'm not shackled by group photos I can wander around the wedding party, flitting from conversation to conversation. Watching what's going on. Listening out for laughter. Looking out for animated discussions that create great expressions and pictures. In essence, images tha[...]
