2019 was amazing – truly, amazing. Tens of weddings, hundreds of coffees, thousands of images. I wanted to post some images, but also to give a little of back story to the image; how it happened, why I took it, what I was thinking – Enjoy!
I would describe myself as a documentary wedding photographer. That is, I don’t pose people, I don’t contrive situations, I just take pictures of your day, as it happens
Abbey and Simon got married at the stunning Granary Wedding Barns – Read more and see some photos!
I’ve said it many times before, but we’re definitely spoilt for choice of venues in Rutland, you definitely can’t go too far wrong organising a Barnsdale Hall wedding
This past Sunday, I exhibited at the Sywell Grange Wedding Fayre, organised by Nicole Hope Smith. As usual, loads of lovely local suppliers were there – all in a tipi!
A few months back I had an enquiry for a christening, I love shooting those, babies are often confused about being sprinkled with water and it’s kind of like a wedding because everyone is happy. Grace and Ed decided it was so much like a wedding that they should split the cost of the church and get married too.
Zoe and Peter got married at the absolutely stunning Holme Pierrepont Hall, Nottingham. These guys wanted a natural, relaxed, documentary style Nottingham wedding photographer to document their day – luckily, I ticked all of the boxes.
This great couple are getting married later in the year at Barnsdale Hall, Rutland water. They wanted a Normanton engagement session to get used to my stupid jokes before the big day…
Mmmm… Wedding cake. I love cake, all cake is amazing, fact. Well, apart from fruit cake, that can piss off.
As you can tell from my site, I firmly believe that documentary wedding photography is best. Natural, real moments from the day, documented as they happen.
Northants Wedding Photographer Last year I collaborated with loads of really excellent suppliers from the area and spent a day working at an exciting new venue - Castle View Farm, Northants. It's a beautiful venue, with amazing views. Can't wait to shoot an actual...
Sam and Sarah had their Haycock Hotel Wedding in August bang in the middle of a heatwave, which was great for the pictures, not so much for my hydration levels…
On Sunday I attended another wedding fayre hosted by Nicole Smith Wedding Fayres. I love these events as it gives me a chance to speak to people who are getting married, as well as other suppliers. Nicole always picks the best venues and suppliers – anyone planning a Sissons Barn Wedding would definitely have been able to book the best in the region on Sunday.
Louise and Kyle planned their Leicester wedding for the Summer – and quite the day it was. Read all about it and see some of their images here.
I covered another fabulous Rutland wedding last year, in Exton, Rutland. The ceremony happened at Exton church, which is one of the most beautiful I’ve worked in
Cambridgeshire wedding venues are so varied – The Black Horse, Elton has to be up there with one of my favourites to shoot at
When I received this enquiry I was super excited, my first Jesus College wedding. I love Cambridge, such a beautiful city, a beautiful wedding it was too!
I did it! I did 2018 - my first full year as a full time wedding photographer; I can honestly say, I loved it. I loved every wedding and putting this selection of images together reminded me of so many moments I've been lucky enough to capture. I decided to put...
I was recently tasked with writing a blog about how and why I got to where I am. This will hopefully kickstart me into actually blogging some of the amazing weddings I’ve shot this year.
This outdoor wedding at Escrick Park featured a toilet paper based metaphor, a Goofy hat, teepees, hundreds of origami cranes and a speech delivered in Mandarin
Sarah and Sam are getting married pretty soon, they wanted an engagement session, so we headed off to the iconic Normanton Church wedding venue to get some shots. As you may know, I strongly believe children should be a big part of your wedding, so why not come along...
Katy and Sam's big day isn't far away now, it was super exciting to meet up with them to get some shots. As with most couples (people) they weren't too keen on having their photos taken, however, after listening to my terrible jokes, they soon eased into it, and I'll...
These guys were looking for an Essex wedding photographer after booking their dream venue – Leez Priory. I get super excited when there’s an amazing venue to work at, and this one truly is
Another beautiful wedding from 2017 – this time Kim and James were looking for a Spalding Wedding Photographer for their big day. It was clear from the first meeting that these guys were really relaxed, which is always reflected in the end result.
Hopefully you’ve read the blog from last Sunday’s wedding fayre at Normanton Park Hotel, if not, why not?!?! Well, I decided to run a little competition to give one lucky couple a free mini engagement shoot on the day. Kat and Dan were the winners, they were a great laugh to take pictures with, and the weather provided a pretty cool backdrop – although we got wet. Very wet.
This past Sunday I spent the day exhibiting at the Nicole Hope Smith Wedding Fayre at Normanton Park hotel, a great celebration of Rutland Weddings. I have only done two wedding fayres, this one, and the last one put on by Nicole Hope Smith. There’s a couple of reasons for this; one, the venue is amazing, right on the shore of Rutland Water means I have a great view all day, and two, it’s a small, intimate wedding fayre which showcase some of the best businesses which all help when planning Rutland weddings.
I’ve absolutely loved sorting the images for this blog. It was a special wedding for me, which I’ll come on to, but it was also a beautiful, child friendly, wedding.
Pretty much this time last year I first met Cheryl and Roy. I went to their house in Carlby to discuss options for their day. At the time I had a very limited portfolio of weddings, so, and they know this, I was very nervous. I genuinely needn't have been. From the...
It was a great day, full of love, family and dancing. I feel privileged to be a part of every wedding I shoot, but this one especially I felt like part of the family, which always helps when getting natural, loving, stunning images.
This is where it all began. My very first wedding. I met Emma and Dean through my wife who had worked with Emma in a previous life, she was due to be married and was looking for a wedding photographer. Luckily, I’d very recently made the decision to go full time photographing weddings – so it all worked out pretty nicely. Off I headed to Grantham, Lincolnshire in anticipation.
