Wedding: Chateau de Massilan, Uchaux, France – Camille & Paul

I met this great couple at Rosy & Alistair’s fabulous St Paul’s last year, when Camille was a bridesmaid. She and Paul hadn’t planned on having a photographer at all at their wedding but changed their minds after seeing us and our work. I can only say that I am so, so thankful that they did; we got to spend several days with them and their nearest and dearest and it was one of the most relaxed and loving occasions […]

Pre-Wedding: Paris – Sacré-Cœur, Eiffel Tower, La Louvre – Vanessa & Michael

I always love a good pre-wedding. There’s something about a couple in love and having lots of time to capture it. This one was no different. Vanessa & Michael invited us to Paris to capture their pre-wedding around all the usual sights. While normally I always make it to La Louvre and the the Eiffel tower, this time we even managed to make Sacre Coeur. Brilliant to see at Sunset! Big travel month for me, lots more adventures coming very […]

Pre-Wedding: Provence, Marseille, Lavender Fields – Amanda and Garrett

Destination Wedding: Mustique, Caribbean – Maria & Adam – Part II

Backtrack to Part I | Forwards to Part III Day Two on Mustique brought a rehearsal at Sunrise House, the villa where the bride was staying and also the wedding location. It was good for us to see the logistics, meet the guys from the villa who were starting to prepare the flowers etc. and get to know Adam and Maria’s close family, the groomsmen and bridesmaids. Afterwards, the couple hosted a really informal barbecue beach party for all their […]

Destination Wedding: Place des Conde, France – Stephanie & Sivan

Happy 2015 everyone! To celebrate the New Year – and a very spectacular wedding – it’s an extra long post for you today. This is Stephanie and Sivan – a properly international couple who met in Israel, live in London and got married in France, which is Stephanie’s home country. I actually first got to know these guys on a pre-wedding shoot around London, and you can see some of those pics below too. The pre-wedding shoot was a great […]

Pre-Wedding: Lake Como, Italy – B + R

When B & R, who are based in China, asked me to pick somewhere in Europe that would be perfect for a pre-wedding shoot, I immediately thought of Lake Como in Italy. It’s the perfect mixture of old glamour, incredible scenery and, usually, hot weather! B & R agreed and we got everything booked in. There’s an old theatre saying that if the dress rehearsal goes badly, the actual performance will be brilliant. This rings true of our trip, which […]

Destination Post Wedding: Crete – Rebecca and Andy

So after the fun and games of the wedding day, it was time to take Rebecca and Andy out to grab some shots of them enjoying life as newly-weds. Rebecca works as a theatre director and has a real fascination with abandoned places and derelict scenes, a theme that crops up frequently in her work, and so for this shoot she had suggested the eerily beautiful village of Kalami, a place she had discovered as a child and longed to […]

Destination Wedding: Crete – Rebecca & Andy

Rebecca and Andy’s wedding was something of a first for me for several reasons. Taking place on the beautiful island of Crete, it was the longest wedding I have ever covered (stretching from 10am in the morning to 6am the following day!) and was the first time I have photographed essentially three weddings for one couple in one day! Rebecca and Andy were getting married in Crete because of its special significance to Rebecca and her family. As they put […]

Destination Wedding: Hong Kong – Victoria and Adam (HK Part III)

After our pre-wedding shoot at Tai O, Caroline and I had a day off before the big one, the morning of Victoria and Adam’s wedding. We woke early and headed to Victoria’s house, where the games began. For anyone who doesn’t know, Chinese weddings traditionally start with the groom not being allowed into the bride’s house. The prospective husband must play various games in order to gain entrance and although Adam was getting ready at the same address, once his […]

Pre-Wedding: Tai O, Hong Kong (HK Part II)

So after land in HK the previous afternoon, the next day was the engagement shoot of Victoria and Adam. They met us at our hotel early in the morning, and we all jumped on a bus to the island of Tai O, the ‘Chinese Venice’, so-called because of its beautiful waterways and little ships; such a contrast to the skyscrapers and glass of Hong Kong. We arrived in blistering midday heat, but luckily Victoria had actually rented an air-conditioned room […]
