Clock Barn Godalming wedding photography | Maria and James

Maria and James' special day started at Great Tangley Manor in my home village of Wonersh (just south of Guildford). We had arranged to do a special pre-wedding photo shoot in the morning with Maria's cousins who had come over from Italy for the wedding. I returned in the early afternoon for some getting ready shots, and then it was time to head over to Clock Barn Hall near Godalming for the wedding ceremony and reception.

Southwark wedding – Two Benjamins

Very often, the small-scale low-key weddings are some of the nicest - and that was certainly the case when these two grooms (both called Benjamin!) got married at Southwark Register Office. Both Benjamins are from France, and they decided to get married before moving back there. Two good friends stood by them as witnesses, and a simple but moving ceremony was conducted by the Southwark registrars. After the wedding itself, we did some simple photos in the garden, and then I left them to celebrate.

Islington Town Hall Wedding | Julie and Tom

This wedding was a special pleasure to photograph, as my nephew Tom married the lovely Julie at Islington Town Hall. Family and friends gathered including a good contingent of Julie's relations from Winnipeg, Canada. The weather decided to be a bit "British", but apart from some occasional drizzle it stayed mostly dry, for which we were all thankful!

Kings Chapel Amersham wedding photos | Helen and Harj

Kings Chapel Amersham wedding photos | Helen and Harj

Helen and Harj’s wedding took place at a new venue for me – the King’s Chapel in Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire.  Set in its own grounds behind the King’s Arms Hotel, it’s a converted 18th century chapel. It makes a great wedding venue as it’s spacious and airy inside with plenty of daylight and has a terrace with a shady garden behind the building. (more…)

Chelsea Registry office wedding | Stephanie & Raj

Chelsea Registry office wedding

Take a dash of London style, add a splash of Anglo-Indian heritage and then mix in some French joie de vivre, and you have the recipe for Stephanie and Raj’s wedding!

Their wedding was a relaxed and intimate affair with family and close friends in attendance. Stephanie’s family and friends had travelled from France and Raj’s from the UK and from India, so it was quite an eclectic gathering. Kudos to Stephanie’s parents for making an excellent speech in English! (more…)

Leatherhead & Surrey Downs wedding | Elle & James

Leatherhead & Surrey Downs wedding | Elle & James

You could clearly see the happiness bursting out of Elle and James as they got married at Leatherhead Register Office – with plenty of family and friends to help them celebrate at Surrey Downs Golf Club afterwards.

The 18th century Mansion in Leatherhead is a very elegant place to get married, with its mahogany panelling and classical style. After the ceremony we went outside to do the official family photos in the gardens, then everybody drove the short distance to Surrey Downs Golf Club for the reception. (more…)

Brympton Somerset wedding | John & Jason

If I had to pick one word to sum up this wedding I think it would be "joyful". Weddings are often stressful affairs - there is so much to organise ahead of the big day, and sometimes this carries over into the day itself - but John and Jason and their families and friends sailed through it all very happily, and a hugely enjoyable time was had by all.

Guildford Castle wedding photos | Ewelina & Spencer

Guildford Castle wedding photos | Ewelina & Spencer

Sometimes I am booked by clients months, even years in advance, sometimes I get a call at the last minute – either way I am happy to help – so when Spencer called me to see if I could photograph his Guildford wedding to Ewelina in a couple of days’ time I said “Sure, no problem!”.

The ceremony took place at Guildford Register Office on Portsmouth Road, with close family and friends in attendance. We took a few photos in the garden at the Register Office then drove back into Guildford and headed for the grounds of Guildford Castle… (more…)

Leatherhead register office wedding | Lindsey & Drew

Leatherhead register office wedding | Lindsey & Drew

It’s not every day you get chased by dinosaurs in the gardens at The Mansion, Leatherhead Register Office… but that’s what Lindsey and Drew wanted and that’s what they got! 😀 They asked me to recreate a famously Photoshopped wedding image by Louisana photographer Quinn Miller, where the couple and guests all flee in terror from a rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex…

I decided to go one better and include two T-Rexes – one for the bride, one for the groom! I don’t normally do this kind of trick photography but it was fun to put this together in Photoshop, with the help of a couple of stock images from fotolia.com. (more…)
