Bluebell family photoshoot in Cobham

This gallery contains 34 photos.

Bluebell photoshoots are extremely popular and so its great when a family suggests a new and hidden location.  It is especially good when it is right on your doorstep! We were blessed with a fantastic warm day.  A week earlier we cancelled as the bluebells were not out and it was freezing cold!  Such a small window of opportunity – you just cannot tell.  We had a great time.  The children were natural models – and so were the parents!  So pleased with the results.  It is always magical working with small children.

Musical family shoot

This gallery contains 16 photos.

I was lucky enough to photograph a very talented, artistic and musical family. We had discussed the type of family shots required in advance, but realised when I turned up how much music and drama played such an important part of their family life.  I then thought it would be lovely to have some shots that showed this – and here are the results!  Despite only having a small amount of wall after moving the sofa (with plug sockets and wires which I removed afterwards), the photographs look amazing!  Who needs a studio?!!

A few of my favourite wedding shots

This gallery contains 21 photos.

I recently exhibited at Foxhills Golf and Country Club wedding fair and bumped into a toastmaster who recognised me as his wedding photographer 12 years ago!  He is still happily married and his favourite wedding photographs sit proudly in photo frames.  It made me think about my favourite wedding photographs that I have taken over the years.  I decided to select a handful of recent weddings – but always find it very hard to choose the best shots! Next I will delve into the archive and find some older weddings that are my all time favourites!   Continue reading

November wedding at Denbies Vineyard, Surrey.

This gallery contains 18 photos.

I felt very privileged to be asked to photograph a wedding for a friend of mine. I always feel it is an honour to be asked and as usual, I love the challenge of the British weather! It was a lovely sunny day at Denbies, but the only real problem was the cold! Gayle looked amazing in her dress and Gareth was cracking jokes with his guests as usual! We had fun throwing what was left of the autumn leaves too! By the evening, I managed to put the camera down for a while and enjoy the wedding. Thank you … Continue reading

Frensham Pond Hotel wedding

This gallery contains 49 photos.

I was lucky enough to photograph Peter and Jan’s wedding at Frensham Pond Hotel, Farnham on a glorious, hot sunny day.  They had a very relaxed and informal civil ceremony, surrounded by family and friends, and with a drinks reception outside overlooking the lake.  What more could you want?!! With 2 best men, a slideshow of old photographs and various props, it made for some funny moments in the speeches! I love photographing this part of the wedding, as I find out so much about the couple and are always good for reactions! Continue reading

Fantastic, fun wedding at Frensham Ponds Hotel

This gallery contains 54 photos.

I had been looking forward to photographing Lisa and Juan’s wedding at Frensham Ponds Hotel.  The hotel had undergone a massive impressive refurbishment so I knew whatever the weather I was going to get some fantastic shots.  When I arrived Lisa was having the finishing touches to her hair which was just simply amazing.  The style really suited her and the hairdresser had done a brilliant job.  When she put her dress on to complete the look she looked stunning.  Her daughter was one of the bridesmaids and obviously very nervous as it is such a big day, but she … Continue reading

A beautiful wedding at Farnham Castle

This gallery contains 165 photos.

I was looking forward to Cara & James wedding at Farnham Castle.  I have a soft spot for old ruined castles because I got married in one myself!  Cara was getting ready in the Gate House on the grounds, and the light inside was gorgeous, until the weather changed!  Thunder, lightning and gale force winds! It managed to calm down so that Cara could walk across for the ceremony.  She was in fits of giggles during the ceremony and we all thought she would never stop laughing enough to be able to say her vows! We had hoped to do a … Continue reading

After a very difficult year personally, I am back to business!  Not sure where to start, as have been working day and night the past 3 months and in need of a rest – but not yet!  The busy wedding fair season is fast approaching and I have a wedding fair this Sunday 12th October at Frensham Pond Hotel.  It is a fantastic venue for photography and the staff are are really helpful, which is always good to know.  I am looking forward to seeing them and the other suppliers.  It is a great fair and free of charge too. … Continue reading
