Jasmine & Phil

On a beautiful Saturday in June, Jasmine and Phil (honestly, these two are made for one another!) tied the knot in an emotional ceremony in the stunning grounds of Dalduff Farm. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of their amazing day. I loved all the personal touches, Jasmine’s stunning vintage inspired wedding dress with a lovely headdress from Artisan Dried Flower Shop, the DIY table decorations and of course their own personalised wedding beer by Peerless Brewing! Last but certainly not least, the amazing wedding cake made by no other than the groom himself! The day had a wonderful warm, laid back feel to it, and I couldn't have felt more welcome amongst Jasmine and Phil's lovely family and friends. This truly was a wedding after my own heart - Phil & Jasmine chapeau! 

Rachael & Tom

Steel band, rum punch, gorgeous weather and an equally gorgeous couple, this really was a day to remember! Rachael & Tom tied the knot in a heartfelt ceremony in their hometown of Heswall. After prosecco and scones in the church hall we made our way to the amazing Oh Me Oh My in Liverpool and headed up to the roof terrace for the rum punch reception! All followed by delicious food, smiles, laughter, dancing, sparkles and great music by HoldTheLine! HUGE thanks to the legends that are Rachael & Tom for having me, it was a blast! 

Natalie & Bob

It's days like this that remind me why I love photographing weddings. Natalie & Bob's big day had absolutely everything, a gorgeous couple, lots of wonderful raw emotion and perhaps most importantly, killer dance moves! Sloans in the centre of Glasgow was the perfect spot for such a special occasion, and really leant itself to Natalie's vintage inspired vision. The ceremony was amazing, the speeches incredibly moving (I was holding back the tears!) and the dancing was truly a sight to behold! Here's Natalie & Bob's incredible wedding story...   

Jennifer & Martyn

A couple of weeks back, on a glorious spring day, I headed over to one of my favourite spots (Killearn Village Hall) for Jennifer & Martyn's amazing wedding. Jennifer rocked up in a vintage VW Campervan,  and looked stunning in her Jarlo dress which was perfectly complimented by her gorgeous bouquet from Little Botanica. The whole day was packed full of wonderful moments, and the beautiful spring colours (and weather!) really set the tone for the day. Jennifer & Martyn really are a perfect couple, and it was a real treat to be part of such a special day with such lovely, down to earth folk. Big shout outs to Jacolyn Kincaid Hair and Cat Robertson  for their amazing work, and Pin Up Dj's for bringing the party! 

Une journée en France

I’ve had a long love affair with street photography. In fact, that’s how I started my photo career! Capturing people in their natural environment (yes we are all like animals!) is something that I cannot get enough of. Being married to a Parisienne and having spent much time throughout France, I’ve had the opportunity to put together a collection of photographs - from the sunburnt skin in Nice to the street vendors along the Seine, and, although a long way from completion, my photography project ‘vive la France etc.etc.’ is coming together nicely! 

Here is a little taste of what’s to come….! 

Heather & Pete

Heather & Pete's wedding extravaganza was such a treat to photograph! The Ashes  wedding venue in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside is some place, with it's amazing stone barns and fabulous grounds it was the perfect spot for such a special occasion. The day was wonderful from start to finish, and the love and laughter between Heather & Pete was truly infectious!  

Lovely new treats for 2017!
