Daisy & Nick were so easy to photograph for their wedding pre-shoot.
The secret lay in the idea I had suggested to them – a black & white shoot at a heritage railway location. Maybe set in the 40′s or 50′s.
They simply loved it and I feel their photographs are amongst the most fun I have ever shot.
Pre Shoot Location: Dean Forest Railway
Anniversary shoots are very much like the formal shoots from a wedding day – except that the family is bigger and everyone is generally a lot more relaxed. So it was great to be asked to shoot for Miriam and Vijay as they celebrated their 20th Anniversary together with their closest friends and family.
Bristol Wedding Photography
Location : Clevedon, near Bristol
Lucy & Nick wanted an engagement shoot somewhere with meaning for them both, so decided that the local gardens at Stratford Park, where they had spent so much time together, was just the spot. So on an unusually dry and warm summers evening, we went for a shoot.
Their wedding is later this year, so come back soon to see some photos from that shoot too.

Nikki & Waynes’ pre-wedding photoshoot was in Winchester on one of the rare sunny, dry and warm days we’ve had this year. Wayne suggested the Nature reserve where he had proposed to Nikki and so we set off for a jaunt through the reeds and along the riverside. They were a completely relaxed couple and Nikki is a bit of a scream. In fact it was almost impossible not to capture a broad grin or sunny smile with every photograph.
They are marrying later this in Salisbury and I just know that it will be a great shoot.

Wedding Photographer Classic VW
I love being a wedding photographer. And sometimes its as much about something the bride and groom have organised as about the location.
At a recent wedding, the couple had booked a Classic 1967 split-screen VW camper van. It was so spectacular, that I felt it needed its very own blog page!
Speaking to Bob, who owned and drove it, he explained that he’d spent more than 4 years completely rebuilding the vehicle. And it was well worth it. It’s already won a number of concours events, and I imagine he’ll be entering it a lot more in the future.
Bob arrived at the brides home with plenty of time to spare on a gloriously sunny March morning in the north Devon seaside town of Ilfracombe. The drive to St Sabinius church in Woolacombe took just a few minutes through a country lane. But wisely, Bob took his VW along a main route to avoid having to stop every 100 yards to let other vehicles coming the opposite way pass.
This gave me, the wedding photographer, plenty of time to get to the church first.
After the ceremony, there were gasps from plenty of the guests when they saw the VW.
The groom, bestman and ushers didn’t have to be asked twice to don their sunglasses and strike a cool pose by the van.
I want one!
