“We wanted the wedding at The Parlour at Blagdon to feel comfortable, welcoming and real. No pretention or falseness. Just us and our closest family and friends. Oh, and a shit load of fairy lights!” - Angela & DaveRead More
It’s impossible to really know what a wedding is going to be like before the day kicks off. You can get a feel from the couple and a sense of the style of wedding they’re planning and hoping for, but until the day it’s all speculation and ideas. On the day, though, it quickly became clear that this was going to be a kick ass wedding!Read More
I love getting on the dance floor at the end of the wedding day as everyone celebrates and it’s a great opportunity to get some unposed, fun photos.
Over the years I’ve developed a specific technique to get the feeling of the nighttime shenanigans across in the photographs.Read More
I know it's a cliche, and after all this is a wedding, but there was a real warmth and love between Gloria and Kevin throughout the entire day. They were constantly holding hands, making eye contact and being patient with one another. Emotions can run high on wedding days as everyone tries to meet the schedule or feels stressed, but Gloria and Kevin sailed smoothly through the day.Read More

It was still bitingly cold, with the wind whipping in off the North Sea but it was dry and the light was good.Read More
Beth & Lee's DIY, glitter infused, disco inspired, do-it-your-own-way-without-being-beholden-to-tradition wedding was one of the best I've ever photographed.
It was also my first time at As You Like It and I hope it won't be my last.
An amazing thing happened at Jennifer and Joe's wedding. We headed off to the bridge in the grounds of Wallsend Hall to take some portraits just after the ceremony.
Jen said 'I wish our dog Bailey could have been here.' Who should come bounding toward the bridge at that very moment?
Bailey of course.Read More
You’ll not find two people more in love than Emma and Ian ❤️
Emma & Ian got married at the Vermont Hotel in the heart of Newcastle's bustling city centre. It's a venue I know very well from previous weddings and I can see why it is so popular. The building itself would fit right into New York's skyline; it's almost a mini Empire State Building with all it's 1930s art deco styling.Read More
