Photo details: Shot in the grounds of the historic Newark Castle, the wedding of Donna & James was a beautiful affair. This is shot in a little tuck away of the castle and off camera flash was used to balance the natural light and focus the attention on the couple.
This was a Game of Thrones themed wedding and the photo really fit in with what they were after...

I cover Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire with Packages starting at £1200.00..
Photo details: I love this dramatic circular entrance to the Orangery at Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire. The strong architectural element required only the simplest of pose for the bride and groom, placement being key for the symmetry of the photograph.
The soft tones of the wall compliment the warm tones in the wedding gown, the trees, gates and path add depth.
This picture was 'a must' for Marion & Jamie's wedding album!
About the photographer: I am an accredited, professional photographer, qualified with both the British Institute of Professional Photographers and The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. My style mixes traditional fine art wedding photography, with a natural, reportage style, to convey emotion and atmosphere - to tell the story of your day! I ensure your wedding day is well prepared, captured with a relaxed atmosphere, within the time allowances specified and of course, creating amazing photography!
“Do I need to provide my wedding photographer with a meal?” YES! I have the proof that wedding photographers need to take on the same calories as a Tour de France cyclist or they will faint during the speeches.
When I turned 50 a few years ago, I realised I was in a bit of trouble. The good years had been a bit too good for me and shooting 2 - 3 weddings a week had suddenly become tough. I was over-weight and out of condition. Back to back Summer weddings in the heat, with all the stress and logistical nightmares, had grown so exhausting that I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to continue into my 50’s unless I restricted my workload to one wedding a week. Unfortunately, this just wouldn’t work financially, and so I decided to get back in shape to cope with the workload. I joined the gym and went on a diet. It all went OK for the first six months but as anyone who has ever tried this will tell you - it gets really boring! On the verge of giving up I did what every professional photographer would do and bought a gadget.
Photo details: The portrait is of stunning bride Fernanda shot at Villa Magiacane, Florence. The sun was disappearing fast when i suggested to Fernanda we shoot some pictures in the beautiful gardens. I shot through some glass ornaments hanging from a tree to give the image depth and the backlit sun offered some interesting bokeh.
About the photographer: I specialise in beautiful, stylish and creative contemporary documentary wedding photography. By documenting what unfolds I captures the essence of the wedding - the laughter, the tears, the joy and all of the emotions of the day. London based, I have photographed weddings from Cornwall to the Orkney Islands, Florence and Marrakech.
