Milena & Richard’s Wedding at Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh
Of all the places in the world that I love to visit, Scotland is up there. I mean right up top there. I’ll never forget the first time I got to Edinburgh and being welcomed by such a well maintained and historical city that just prides itself on its heritage. Not to mention the drive through the Trossachs and into the Highlands and Glencoe. To call it a photographer’s dream would be an understatement. But that’s enough about my love for Scotland, now back to the important stuff; the wonderful Richard and Milena.
Faye & Adam’s Wedding at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester
Adam and Faye’s first date didn’t get off to the smoothest of starts. She had no car at the time so they’d agreed he would pick her up from her work car park and go from there. Looking out for the black golf she nervously opened the door and got in. Then a moment of shock… She realised the driver wasn’t Adam. She’d gotten into another black golf by mistake. Luckily on her wedding day at the amazing Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, she was in the right place with the right man and the wedding day all went to plan.
Himani & Phil’s Garden Marquee Wedding
When I met Himani and Phil earlier in the summer for their engagement shoot at Kensington Palace Gardens I knew their wedding was going to be special. They’d told me that their wedding day was going to be a real family orientated affair and one of two weddings as they prepared to set-off to India for the second half of the celebrations.

Katie and Graham’s Wedding at Blake Hall in Ongar, Essex
Thinking she was going on a surprise trip to Italy Katie found herself on a plane, heading out to San Francisco. Little did she know she’d be travelling for 6 months with the love of her life. It turned out to be a trip of a lifetime rather than the surprise Italy trip she was expecting. It had all been organised by Graham. From the Rocky Mountains to Napa Valley. They went travelling around the US soaking in the sights. When she returned to one of her favourite restaurants overlooking the vineyards in the Napa Valley she hadn’t expected the proposal. True to form; however, Graham surprised her yet again! Getting down on one knee at the end of the evening and asking Katie to marry him. Flash forward to August this year, and that proposal led to their wedding day at one of my favourite wedding venues in Essex. Blake Hall in Ognar.
Sam & Hayley’s Destination Wedding at Finca Son Mir, Mallorca
If you’re considering a destination wedding Finca Son Mir just outside Palma, Mallorca is a beautifully renovated olive farm. Restored between 2006 and 2007 much of the traditional character of the estate Finca Son Mir was retained. The wedding venue and grounds provide a wonderful and historic backdrop to your wedding day. From stone steps leading to an old, enclosed courtyard. Arches leading to lush green lawns and over 600 olive trees it is perfect for those special photographs. If like Sam & Hayley you do opt for this your wedding at Finca Son Mir, Mallorca then you’re in for real treat.
Natalie & Sam’s Sunset Pre-Wedding Shoot
Living in the UK, you have to get used to how erratic the weather can be. It’s kinda our thing. Maybe even our USP? Probably not, but one thing I must say is that when the weather is good in the UK, it really is good. When Natalie and Sam contacted me from their home in San Francisco late last year to inform me that they’d be heading over to the UK to celebrate their wedding day at Ramster Hall in Guildford, I couldn’t wait to meet them!
