Beach Weddings Bournemouth 2016 season
This weekend sees the launch of the Beach Weddings Bournemouth 2016 season. Hardly seems possible that 4 years have flown by after the first wedding on the beach in 2012 (and it was live on GMTV at breakfast time!). On Sunday 1st May, the Beach Weddings Bournemouth marquee will be open for their Spring Open Day. I'll be there, along with some of the other recommen[...]

Wedding at St Peter's Church Bournemouth
Looking back exactly one year ago today, to Jo and Zac's lovely wedding at St Peter's Church Bournemouth. Happy anniversary! From the fun of the Bridal preparations, to the grandeur of the Church ceremony, to the VW Camper down by the beach and the laughter of the reception and the party - this was a day to remember. I've known Jo's Mum for many years and was d[...]

What price wedding photography?
If you were reading the tabloids last week, or watching posts on wedding forums you might have seen a story that was doing the rounds. It involved a young student photographer who was hired by a couple to take their wedding photographs. I won't go into the ins and outs of the story, but let's just say it didn't end well for anyone. They took her to court and now t[...]

Swanage wedding and an Italian Villa reception
Hardly seems possible that it's exactly a year since Lauren and Sam's Swanage wedding. Time really does fly when you're photographing weddings, as one season morphs into the next! We'd done an engagement shoot a few months earlier on Studland, so I'd already got to know them quite well. The ceremony was held at the St Mary's Parish Church in the middle of Swanage. [...]

Burley Manor Barn wedding venue
In the gorgeous Spring sunshine today I drove out into the New Forest. Apart from a chance to enjoy the weather it was to take a look at the recently refurbished Burley Manor Barn wedding venue. Set in eight acres of landscaped grounds, the Manor is located in the centre of the lovely village of Burley. Ponies wander through the street as tourists potter around the ca[...]

A rainy beach wedding
Three years ago today the sun didn't shine. In fact, it was 'orrible! Wet and windy, very. How do I remember? Because today is Caroline and Kevin's third wedding anniversary. In the morning Caroline's Mum phoned home to Manchester to chat to friends, who said "what a lovely day for Caroline's wedding" - it was warm and sunny up there, but absolutely chucking it down o[...]

Northbrook Park wedding video
Today I'm not featuring my work or my business, but someone else's. What? Why would I do that? Because today I'm talking about the work of Simon, who runs Final Cut Film. I've worked with Simon on a number of weddings over the past few years and I highly recommend him to my couples. The most recent wedding we worked on was Tash and Will's at Northbrook Park in Surrey.[...]
