Based in Derbyshire, UK I am a documentary style wedding photographer that adds a splash of great fashion images to a couples wedding day. The focus is always on the couple having a great time with family and friends.
A fabulous day with a rainy end. The picture just had to be done, all the yellow blossom had been gently rally all day. A simple shot, that took a couple of minutes, lucky to have a bride that actually enjoyed getting a little wet in the rain!
A fab couple that were up for anything I asked of them. The picture was really simple, with a speed light behind them and shot through some fairy lights to add a little sprinkle of loveliness!
A magical evening in June, with a dab of flash from behind the couple and some foreground added in post to warm it up a little. The end to a perfect day for a very charming pair of newlyweds.
Wow, my 9th Wedisson award!
This was just one part of what was an amazing day, working for a couple that rub shoulders with Royalty.
A simple organised confetti throw, but I guess big smiles and big cheers help make it a little more special!
This is the first time I've ever stayed right until the end at a wedding.
I had to wait until nearly everyone had drifted away so that the music died down and I was able to communicate with them. I saw the shot the day before when I met them, so it had to be done, and I had to wait but worth it in the end!
This picture was done at a venue that doesn't deliver much backdrop on an awful winter day. With sideways rain there was no way the bride was going to go outside, and with little scope for anything too exciting indoors I made this composite image with about 7 exposures using just a speedlight on the couple.
The couple really wanted a picture with the 'Love' sign.
The sign was positioned right behind the top table on a tiered seating area, so there was very little room to do much. I moved the chairs away from the table and positioned the couple at the end. I made a composite by keeping the couple still and flashed them in several places. I also multiple exposed over the sign to add foreground interest.
I had asked the couple out to do a picture at a crop field opposite the house. When we turned around to head back to the party I saw what was an obvious silhouette. It took a minute, and the sky looks great as we were quite a distance from any urban light pollution.
Kelly and Dave had their wedding celebrations at a farm. The tent had emptied out as it started to get dark. It was a simple shot with a backlight flash to put a rim light around the couple and separate them from the tent.
The picture was taken at Stanage Edge in Derbyshire UK. We delayed the engagement shoot by a day to get a better sunset. There were many shots taken on what was a fabulous shoot, but this one stood out, and the second I saw the angle I knew it was a winner!
I asked the couple to come out for a picture under a tree, then returning to the venue thought there might be another shot here. A really simple backlight and some fairy lights added in post made it a cracker but it was hard work with the camera hunting for focus in the dark. Within a couple of minutes we were quite wet, so hats off to the bride and groom for putting up with it even though she said she was loving the cool rain!!
Michelle and Peter took their marriage vows in a bandstand type gazebo outside at their hotel venue. I asked them to come out for a picture in the gazebo and afterwards I walked back towards the hotel with them and I saw how the tree and building worked against the sky. It was quick to do and it was easy but it relied on good framing and interaction to make it successful.
