Weddings in Norfolk and Studland
Although I'm a Bournemouth-based wedding photographer, that doesn't mean that I only work in Bournemouth. My weddings take me much further afield, from Dorset and Hampshire up into Somerset, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Surrey. Even further afield that that! To prove it, there's another double celebration on the Blog today. Firstly, Rushmi and Dean's Hindu wedding in Nor[...]

Merley House wedding - Ami and Chris
Congratulations today to a lovely couple. We're looking back in time to a beautiful Merley House wedding - Ami and Chris' special day, just 2 years ago. I've known Ami for a few years now and was delighted when she asked if I'd photograph their wedding. Merley House near Wimborne's a lovely venue for a wedding. The ceremony room has masses of natural light flooding in[...]

A storm brewing | Fuji X100
One of the benefits of a small camera like the Fuji X100 series is that you can keep it close all of the time. Perfect for quick grab shots. True, I've also got a small Canon Powershot which is great for carrying around, but I just love the Fuji. Superseded now by the S and T versions, it still holds its own in my opinion. Here's a perfect example from late yesterday [...]

Double August wedding celebrations
Rain, rain go away … After yesterday's gorgeous sunshine and a brilliant day for anyone visiting the Bournemouth Air Festival, it's back to what seems to be the "norm" for August this year. Rain, rain, rain. Anyhow, let's forget the torrential rain and the thunderstorms for a moment and look back at sunnier days. Helping two of my lovely couples remember their specia[...]

Why are wedding flowers so expensive?
There's no getting away from the fact that weddings are (generally speaking) costly events. Just ask any couple, or their parents! :) There's the venue, the food and drink, the dress, the photography, the rings, the wedding flowers ... the list goes on. Many of the elements that go to make up your wedding day are provided by professionals. People who work full-time in[...]

Wedding anniversary celebrations
As a wedding photographer it's bound to happen at least a couple of times each year. When couples whose weddings I've had the privilege of photographing celebrate their anniversary on the same day. Gone are the times when weddings were mainly held on Saturdays, with the occasional civil ceremony during the week. And years ago it would have been unthinkable that couple[...]
