Jo & Rob / Preview

Last weekend I headed into the middle of Devon for Jo and Rob's wedding day. I won't be the only photographer stating that it was the hottest wedding of the year so far, and likely will remain that way!

I started the day at Jo's mum's house in Uplowman, which is the basis of the below photo. Nearing close to the ceremony time Jo gave gifts to her bridesmaids and her mum, which turned into this embrace. This for me is the key kind of image of a wedding day. This was about the forth of fifth shot in this sequence, adjusting the frame to compliment the moment each time. Trying to avoid distractions and add depth to the photo.

The day went on with a real village community vibe, holding the reception at the local village hall with children everywhere enjoying the sunshine. Blog to follow soon with the whole story...

Fearless Award Winner!!!

Fearless Award Winner!!!

Let me first provide some context. It's half term week, the wife and kids have been away for a few days and I've been struck with man flu, but I soon perked up when I'd found out I'd won a Fearless Award for this image!

If you don't already know, Fearless Photographers is a community of wedding photographers across the world. It includes some of the world's best wedding photographers, and every so often they put a collection of images together that represent the best work out there. Roughly the top 1% make the cut, and this, one of my favourites, made the final selection!

Saunton Sands Wedding Photography / Caroline & Ray

Saunton Sands Wedding Photography / Caroline & Ray

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of capturing Caroline and Ray's wedding at Saunton Sands in North Devon. Having met Kaz (Caroline) a few weeks previously I drove north full of excitement, from the wedding theme to the plans for the day itself, I was expecting great things, but little did I know how great it would be!

With everything being held at Saunton Sands Hotel I popped up to Kaz's room to capture some of the preparations when Kaz discovered her watch was 20 minutes late and the last minute rush kicked in!

First Dance / Rewind

First Dance / Rewind

The last of the Rewind mini-series is all about the first dance! If you haven't seen it before, Rewind is a look back at some of my favourite photos from moments of a wedding day.

I LOVE capturing the first dance! Every couple approach it differently, but after enjoying your wedding day it's that moment of just two people celebrating what's taken place with all their friends and family in attendance.

Bickley Mill Wedding Photography / Emily & Andy

Bickley Mill Wedding Photography / Emily & Andy

I have a tendency to write too much in these posts! However, this one was a little different to most. I used to work with Emily, and a few years later I end up photographing her and Andy's wedding at Bickley Mill. On top of that, Emily and Andy were also guests at two 2016 weddings that I photographed, so if there was ever a bride and groom that knew what they were getting, it was these two!
