Beautiful dress, groom that bears a striking resemblance to Jamie Redknapp, summertime in Kent, fun, and teepees. I love weddings like this! (Couple of warnings: 1. There are a lot of pictures 2. There are a lot of pictures of the dress. You'll see why.) For some photographers being askedRead More
Ever have one of those days where it's so much fun you can't believe it's actually work? I did yesterday. Meet Annabelle. 7 months old, absolutely adorable and one of the happiest babies I've photographed! It was lovely to meet up with her parents again (I photographed their wedding at Abbots BartonRead More
Even for me, this one's a bit unusual. Most wedding photographers have an exclusivity clause in their contract. Mine states that unless agreed otherwise I will be the sole professional photographer at the wedding. For Asian weddings we always "agree otherwise". With hundreds and sometimes thousands of guests and not oneRead More
Yesterday was one of my most exciting weddings of the year. And also my most unusual. For privacy and security reasons, all pictures from this wedding featuring the couple or any of their guests will need to be cleared before I can post them. So in this sneak preview you won'tRead More
Cast you mind back a few months. W-a-a-a-y back in May, I met up with Ella and Gareth on Reculver Beach at dawn. Lily was there too!
You may wonder what they have been up to for the past 6 months or so. There’s a simple answer. Planning. Or rather Ella has. The shot above isn’t the plan from their wedding. It’s the plan for the flowers at their wedding. The rest of the plan takes another 16 pages. It worked though – their wedding earlier this week went like clockwork.
Very very fun clockwork :).
I ran some adverts a while ago with the tag line “Details Matter”. If you come over to the gallery then you’ll see some examples of what I mean. A wedding is full of details from the favours you agonised over to the table plan to the colour of the flowers and on and on.
Becky and Matt’s wedding at Courtstairs was no exception – in fact they had come up with some great ideas of their own. Once the full day goes into the client area you’ll see loads of them. In the meantime here is the story of the day.
If you take a look in the galleries then you’ll see that I’ve shot some pretty big and elaborate weddings. The “record” is somewhere over 800 guests (really – nobody knows exactly how many were there).
But less is more and smaller weddings can be a lot of fun. Like this Thursday – I was over at Sittingbourne Register Office for Julie and Terry’s wedding. That’s pretty much all of the guests plus celebrant in the shot there. The only person missing is the registrar Sarah who is right behind Terry.
