Mid-summer, and the end of the June heat wave, brought me to Northampton for a great family wedding.
Having shot Alex and Aly’s engagement party back in March, their big day finally arrived at the end of November. So with cameras in hand I was off to the beautiful city of Ely to shoot their wedding on a cold frosty morning that turned into a fantastic clear day. Continue reading
The very last day of September brought a pleasing sunny day, a trip to the historic town of St Albans and that increasing popular event – a week day wedding. Continue reading
This weekend brought a rather unusual assignment – a charity event with a difference. Lee Gibbs set himself the target of rowing a distance equivalent to half a marathon – over 21 Km (13.1 miles) – to raise money for the MS society, although this is an impressive and worthy feat in itself, what makes it remarkable is the Lee himself suffers from MS and NMO and needs a wheelchair to get around!
A warm and surprisingly sunny Saturday in August took me to the Chesterfield Downs golf club near Stevenage and the wedding of Sonja and Russell. This was a great day as I followed Sonja’s preparations from hair and make-up in the morning, through to the informal and relaxed wedding ceremony – where Abbie their daughter played a starring role as ring bearer – and then onto a chilled afternoon reception overlooking the rolling Hertfordshire countryside.

The middle of March took me to a venue I’ve known about for some time, but never actually done a shoot in; the Novotel in Stevenage. For this shoot I’d been asked to attend Alex and Aly’s engagement party.
During the run up to Peter and Susan’s wedding in September 2015, I knew that Susan was working with the team at Archant to see whether she could have their wedding featured in the Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Bedfordshire Bride Magazine 2016. I discovered Susan had been successful when I found a double page spread in Bride magazine featuring my work!
It’s spring! Which for certain group of people can only mean only one thing… the start of the wrestling season! The first event in the Ultimate British Wrestling federation calendar was a match at Haynes in Bedfordshire and I was pleased to be invited to come along and cover the show for them. This was my third wrestling event with the UBW, and I have to admit I’m becoming a fan. Continue reading
