These shoots are primarily aimed at children of all ages, but especially under 10 but all ages welcome.






Janice & Steve’s Wedding, The Holiday Inn

A short but sweet visit to photograph this lovely couple for a couple of hours.  I was with them from guests arriving to the speeches but long enough to get beautiful couple shots, and family photos against a fab backdrop of an outdoor flower wall – hats off to the florist who came up with the idea to insert real flowers into the wall of foliage.

Here’s just  a few shots from the big day!

Denise & Danny’s Wedding, Shendish Manor

It’s been a hectic month for weddings and I’ve had a brilliant time.  Editing is always the slowest process though and as a photographer it’s this part which takes time, especially when you have other weddings to do too.  But I love the process of sitting down with a coffee, playing my favourite music and reliving the wedding day of my couples.  So Denise and Danny were amazing and they had the most fantastic day at Shendish Manor – Denise was stunning and Danny finally cracked a smile – turned out he was nervouse as all hell before the wedding ceremony – aw bless.  So here’s a few photos of the gorgeous Denise and her Danny …

Alicia & Alex’s wedding, The Noke Mercure, St Albans

So the summer sun is fast descending now, as the light is starting to change and luckily for Alex and Alicia the weather was still perfect for them.  I have to say these two certainly offered up some surprises for their big day including a Pudding van, a bike with lavender, and some fantastic punches.  Plus a characaturist!  They also had friends and family from South Africa and Canada too! Here’s some sneaky peak photos of the lovely couple.


Evening sunlight on my bride, Ashridge House

Katie is a stunning girl, but what gets photographer’s so excited is the golden hour when the sun is just coming down to set for the night…Oh my, that’s when I literally feel my camera tingle!  Look how lovely her hair is as the sun just highlights behind her  – a lovely girl on her wedding day made even more beautiful by the evening sun – aaaah bliss!
