Craig and Andy Click images to view full size I met Craig and Andy at the end of 2013 to arrange my first civil partnership wedding. The spring-time date is fast approaching and at one of my favourite venues, Cripps Barn near Cirencester. Sister or Big Brother to my favourite venue of last year, Cripps […]

Jonny and Lucy With the 2013 wedding season finally over, my last shoot on the 28th December in Leicester, I was looking forward to getting started again in 2014. So when the call came from Lucy and Jon confirming their venue, I was excited to be visiting Fosse Manor’s wedding venue, Hyde Barn in Stow […]

So with new ideas looming for my winter weddings, I wanted to test my new LED (home-made) lighting bar. So I armed myself with my daughter and Nephew and headed up into the woods with sparklers, wire wool, a lighter and my new creation. This is the results!

Natalie and Jim Wedding photography is hard work with long challenging days, but the rewards are so great, and this wedding was no exception. It was a 9.30am start to capture all the natural shots of the bride, her bridesmaids, daughter and mum getting ready, it’s all about documenting as much of the day as […]

  Day 246 – Traces of evidence Er, no officer I wasn’t taking pictures whilst driving, ok so maybe I was but I was in control and still had one hand on the wheel (not the camera jog wheel) plus it was only for 1.6sec plus .4sec to put the camera down. It takes longer […]

  Day 244 – Lots of smile for hugs Not much to say about this image that the picture doesn’t already, Lottie and Hugo having a nice brotherly sisterly cuddle whilst giving me a perfectly timed pair of beaming smiles!

  Day 243 –  Field of gold. After a run of  lovely sunsets, all of which I had previously not had time to get out for, I was not letting this one go, so armed with my Nikon and my pooch it was time to race up the hill before the sun sunk behind the […]

  Day 240 – Venue of Love. Another pre-wedding meeting with the lovely couple Dan and Sarah at the very cool Matara Wedding Centre in Kingscote near Tetbuy. This venue is gorgeous and I love it, it has so many opportunities for photographs and I can not wait to shoot the wedding , I just […]

    Day 238 – Toad in a hole. Actually its a frog, but the title explains the story a little better! Don’t get too excited it’s not a press stopper but did turn my head. It is always nice to see wildlife in the garden other than the dog barking at it’s shadow! I […]

Day 235 – Looks familiar. Definitely a case of Deja Vu. If you have read my blog before then you’ll understand this post!   

Day 230 – Delivering priceless pictures. Today I get to deliver the photographs from the beautiful Wedding of the now Mr & Mrs Crowley, I  love delivering this little package as it contains such joy, this is what I offer with all my weddings, the picture of the big days details and a tin full […]

Day 229 –  A light drink before bed? So the one thing I fancied playing with is my Nikon Sb910 Flashgun, it’s a beast and something I need to know inside out, so this was a little shot I took after the baby went to bed leaving his bottle behind, thank goodness for heating bottles […]

Day 228 – What you looking at? Yep, the sun is out so who better to rope into a little photo or two? As if he had a choice, poor fella!  I’m sure when he is older he’ll get me back, when I am too old and asleep on the sofa with that best sleeping […]

Day 227 – Pride of place. After doing my ‘Selfie’ or my new take on a self portrait, the finished product has arrived, a beautifully made canvas from the supplier I use for all my canvases. Now I get to stare at my gorgeous family and the loves of my life all the time!  

  Day 226 – Hair of the dog. So after getting a panicked phone call from my wife that the dog had a 3-4 inch long thorn stuck in her eye whilst I was at a wedding shoot, we had too take advise from the vet to cut her hair right back. So she has […]

  Day 225 – Young Love. The weekend and it’s been a busy one, first off, photos for a flower shop in Cirencester, back to Cheltenham for a pre-wedding shoot in a old record store and finished of with a catch up with some great friends. So after a walk round the park a few […]

  Day 224 – Birds eye view. As I popped in to see my daughter before she headed of to Disney Land a hot air balloon passed over and as I looked up and saw the birds on the telegraph pole, they were looking down on me whilst the floaters-by looked down on us all! […]

  Day 223 – The loves of my life. I had a challenge set by the magazine to take a ‘selfie’ but I wanted to take it in a different way, so here is my  Self Portrait, it includes my loves and what surrounds me and gives you a little insight to my life!
