Destination Wedding: Mustique and Barbados, the Journey. Part I – Maria & Adam

Right – this is the first of a series of posts covering an incredible destination wedding in Mustique with a fabulous, warm couple. After booking this in, I discovered that by serendipity my parents were holidaying in the Caribbean – in Barbados, where they used to live – at the same time, so my assistant, Iain, and I jetted out a few days early and stayed with them. As well as the opportunity to catch up with my long-suffering mum […]

Destination Wedding: Bangalore, India – Jan & Saags – Part III – Post Wedding Shoot

If you missed Part I or Part II of the wedding I highly recommend them! Well, Jan and Saags may have had their Indian wedding ceremony and reception already, but that didn’t mean we could stop taking photos! We ran out of time on the day of the ceremony, and the weather was so bad that we didn’t manage to get as many portraits as I would have liked. So since we all had a spare day in Bangalore, we […]

Destination Wedding: Bangalore, India – Jan & Saags – Part II

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog post, and are all prepped and ready to see Jan and Saags getting married in today’s! We had an early start – 5am, to be precise – because the entire day was scheduled around the ‘auspicious time’, which was when Jan and Saags would actually be married. The elements tried to put obstacles in our way, with torrential rain and a power cut, but we overcame them all. Jan and Saags decided to go […]

Destination Wedding: Bangalore, India – Jan & Saags – Part I

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, or if you know me at all, you’ll know that I love me a destination shoot. Working abroad brings together all the things I enjoy most in life – the chance to travel and experience different cultures, and the job that I love. So I was pretty much jumping for joy when, fairly last minute, Jan and Saags asked me to come out to India to shoot their epic wedding. They’d […]

Wedding: Paddock’s House, Newmarket – Lesley-Ann and Chris

Well, you may remember this lovely pair from their engagement shoot in London. We had a great time then, so when I got back from India I was really excited to join them again for their wedding. Lesley Ann and Chris tied the knot in a new venue – Paddocks House in Newmarket. Paddocks House is a beautiful place and I can highly recommend it to anyone still searching for their wedding venue! I’m going to keep things short this […]

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 […]

Wedding: Hengrave Hall, Suffolk – Julianna & Darren

I hope you’re all suitably stuffed on mince pies and your turkeys are ready for roasting! Here in the Beckett household I’m hoping to get some last minute Christmas presents sorted – in the form of wedding photos. Next up is the lovely Julianna and Darren – one of the smiliest couples I’ve ever come across. I don’t *think* this had anything to do with the fact that they had a wine-themed wedding (because Darren’s surname is, happily, ‘Wines’!). I […]

Pre-Wedding Shoot: Megan & Richard

When Megan and Richard asked me to get some pre-wedding shots, I wasn’t quite prepared for how crazy this day was going to be! We started off in Bedford, where Richard had gone to school (he wanted to show Megan where he’d grown up – how sweet is that?!), then went on to London, ending up in the Chelsea Club (these guys are big fans) and outside Harrods. Exhausting but great fun, and all topped off with an exceptional Chinese […]

Engagement Shoot: London – Lesley-Ann & Chris

It’s been a bit odd editing this pre-wedding shoot from the Autumn… because it’s only been a few weeks since I shot Leslie-Ann and Chris’ wedding in Newmarket (more of that soon)! This was a very relaxed shoot around London, designed to help Leslie-Ann and Chris feel comfortable in front of the camera. I’m not sure why they were a bit self-conscious to begin with – they’re naturally photogenic and I think their sweetness and sense of fun really come […]

Pre-Wedding Photoshoot: London Bridge – Kath and Kai

Hey guys, so are you ready for a crazy week of blogging? That’s right – it’s Project Get-Everyone’s-Photos-To-Them-Before-Christmas! I will hopefully be putting up quite a few blog posts in the next few weeks, but I’m going to keep each one short and sweet. And I’m going to kick off the week with the lovely Kath and Kai’s pre-wedding shoot in London. These guys are getting married next year and wanted to grab a bit of time with me walking […]
