The last wedding of 2011 was always going to be a bit special.  Even though it's quite a way out of Kent, I knew the venue the Elvetham Hotel well.  I photographed the Madeline Isaac-James 2011 collection there a year or so ago.  I'd met Nikki, the bride's mother (and several of her

A couple of years ago, if somebody had told me I would get excited about wedding dresses, I would have laughed at them.  But 2 years on, after several designers have asked me to photograph their new collections for them it's getting to be a lot of fun. Take this dress

Weddings are my favourite thing - the joy, the emotion, the people, the details, the adrenaline.... But bridal fashion is a very close second.  Especially when it is shooting for the amazing Madeline Isaac-James.  I photographed her entire 2011 collection last year and yesterday I got a sneak preview of the

A story of social media, lightning fashion and a very special coat. It all started with an innocent enough remark.  Kent was snowbound, I was on Twitter chatting to Natalie from Madeline Isaac-James and an idea hit me.  Quite a dangerous idea actually. Hey, you know that new bridal coat you've designed?

My PR agent (ProposePR) have just released a couple of videos which show you behind the scenes at a bridal fashion shoot. I spent a couple of days in the baking sun photographing all the new gowns for Madeline Isaac-James' 2011 collection (and learning not to call them "frocks").  There is

I've already mentioned that I recently photographed the entire Madeline Isaac-James 2011 collection.  Actually it's two collections.  The Candelit collection is all about romance with big floaty dresses - big skirts, detailed bodices.  The Starlet is just a little bit glamorous.  Think 20's and 30's movie star look and you've
