Bride dancing with father

A Favourite in Focus – Dancing with Dad

Parents are such an important part of the wedding day.  Seeing your little boy or girl get married is one of those very moving highlights of parenthood.  I already know that I am going to be ridiculously emotional on Cosmo’s wedding day. Just thinking about it brings a tear to my eye, and he is only…

Here are my favourite pictures of Month 8 of my 365 project – a project where I take and share a picture every day. I have started to get used to the short days and lack of light.  Generally mornings are the best time for me to get my picture of the day as we…

Documentary photograph of bride and groom during the speeches

Jewish Wedding, Hertfordshire – Danni + Matt

Danni and Matt decided to do things a little differently.  Rather than celebrating with a tradtional Jewish wedding reception, they opted for a party with a real nightclub feel. They put up a marquee in Danni’s parents garden in Hertfordshire and added a cocktail bar and a DJ.  The Jewish ceremony didn’t take place until late…

My 365 Project – Month 7

Autumn has arrived.  I love this season. The colours, the slight chill in the air and the beautiful light on a sunny autumn morning make this my favourite season.

A Favourite in Focus – Dad and the Wedding Dress

This picture is a favourite of mine.  The light is gorgeous and I love the contrast between the father of the bride in black and the stunning lacy white dress.

Kings Chapel Wedding, Amersham

Laura and Stephen are both Irish musicians.  Laura plays the violin and Stephen plays the Bodhran (Irish drum). They met on Laura’s 21st birthday playing an Irish music session at the Herschel Arms pub. So it is no surprise that Irish music (and pubs) played a big part in Laura and Stephen’s wedding. Laura and…
