Welcome video

If you were anything like me, you grew up dreaming of being the perfect bride in the perfect wedding. Your makeup flawless, your gown exquisite, your doting husband Disney-prince-perfect in an immaculate suit, and all set against a magnificent backdrop somewhere absurdly picturesque and romantic. Sound too good to be true? Well, this is all pretty standard in the wonderland world of the Asian pre-wedding shoot. Less than 50 […]

Pre Wedding Shoot London

Those empty years that have you waking up on New Year’s Day, bleary eyed and suffering, wondering, where did that year go? What the hell did I achieve? The crushing weight of another year wasted pushes you into your pillows and stops you from getting out of bed. We’ve all been there. I certainly have.   I’m […]

2018 Wedding Highlights

There are some friends in life who you know you’ll always be close to. I met Michaela and Holly at university and we’ve now been close friends for over a decade. But- as it often does- life has recently been getting in the way and it had been almost a year since we all saw […]

Holly & Yan- Montreux Switzerland Couple Photoshoot

As a photographer, you should never get too comfortable. We all have a comfort zone with everything we do and wedding photographers are no different. My personal comfort zone is a front-lit, outdoor shoot with natural light. But in reality not all weddings are like this. The comfort zone is a wonderful place but nothing ever grows there, which […]

‘In Bloom’ Walters Wardrobe at Ragley Hall

As some of you will know, Jonathan and I have just returned home from a once-in-a-lifetime road trip in America, visiting LA, Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and San Francisco. Needless to say, it was amazing, so of course I thought I’d share a few of our adventures with you over the next few weeks. […]

Ain’t love Grand- Grand Canyon couple shoot

I often get asked, “what happens if it rains?” I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if you’re getting married in the UK, you can NEVER guarantee good weather. In fact, I would almost say to expect bad weather and take sunshine as a welcome bonus! Of course in the grand scheme […]

7 ways to dance in the rain on your wedding day

I’m back! My new goal for the rest of the year is get back to blogging my shoots. When you are as busy as me I don’t have time and often blogging does fall at the wayside. But very often I only share my favourites when there is a lot more behind that one image. […]

Row your boat

Nataly’s and Nathans love story is just beautiful. I remember her telling me over coffee when we first met and it just melted my heart. Every couple I have the privilege of photographing I am always fascinated to hear their love story. Each and every single one is unique and magical. This one is no […]

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

My husband and I visited Groombridge Place back in summer time as I’d been pining to photograph there forever. We left home quite late and so by the time we’d arrived, we only had an hour to whizz around the place for me to scout it out for future shoots. Even so, I fell in […]
