It’s been a brilliant blur of a year. I got married in the mountains of Mallorca in August, got inspired at the Paris Art fair, shot loads of brilliant weddings, each and every one of which I can say I found uniquely interesting to shoot, I also shot a lot of families, engagement sessions and babies and lastly we found out Sarah was pregnant.  Next year is going to be even busier.

Below are some moments I’ve loved. I have some to post up from my own wedding and time in Mallorca but they can wait for another post. This is the rest. Each year I’m gradually shooting more for myself mainly on film and next year I’m working on projects to take this further.  I’ve just joined Instagram and plan to post up various bits of the coming shoots on there. If you want to follow me  please do. The weddings however still rock my world. If you’re getting married this year I’d love to hear about your plans?

Lastly as always thanks to my brilliant clients for bringing me along, it was a blast and Sarah for keeping my feet grounded.


In the silence of your bones and eyes forgotten magic sits and waits for fire

Last year the fab Helena and Christian took me to a second hand furniture shop and cured meat shop for an engagement shoot near where they live. I included a couple of images for my end of year round up from last year here.  This was the time we spent together.

Helena and Christian, as a couple rock; they’re fun and interesting in equal measure and we had a great time. To say I’m jealous of their little corner of London is understatement.  I’ll soon be blogging their brilliant wedding which I shot this year. Thanks for inviting me along guys.

Some weddings just have a life of their own that grows and grows and this was certainly one of them. It fizzed through a blur of soul, life and fun emanating from start to finish from it’s fab hosts and I’m extremely grateful to them I got the chance to capture it all. This was their day:

London has a lot of sides which is why it’s still one of my favourite place in the world. This kind of night in a small London hotel with just a few guests but a whole load of feeling and emotion shows off one of those sides. It’s both beautiful and classy but also unstuffy and inclusive, everyone in the room on this night made it what it was.  Thank you Sophie and Will for letting me share such a warm and intimate evening.

Well I’m now married.  A week out in Mallorca in a villa with a soundsystem, some records, my family and my best friends. It was a brilliant blur and the best time I’ve ever had, I honestly couldn’t imagine a better time. Some images coming soon but as well as getting married I’ve had a busy summer with weddings. I still get a buzz at a wedding and I get a buzz shooting them maybe more so now strangely than ever before having been excited all year about my own. Anyhow this is some of what I’ve been up to.

Lizzie and Alex are two very cool people and theirs was my kind of wedding. Relaxed, fun and stylish. I could photograph the two of them all year if that doesn’t sound freaky. The venue is the detail and their warmth the heart of it.  You really don’t need more.

    I wish I could link to the exact image, but there's this one black and white one during the ceremony where she's looking at the groom and it's such a great capture.

Every wedding is different and so too are clients. I’ve always enjoyed chatting to people and this is one of the things I like most about weddings, chatting to new people and getting to know them. I love photography as well but I’m all about getting on well with the people I’m photographing. Mario Testino lived by this rule. Good vibes lead to great images. Sometimes when chatting to clients before the day it’s nice not to just talk about schedules and planning because this dynamic detracts from the relaxed feeling I’m looking for, it can be covered but shouldn’t be the central pivot. The more carefree the feel of a day the better the images.  I’m incredibly grateful to my clients for trusting me to shoot how I feel, rather than being directed and I know in turn this produces the best work. Here are some recent words that have made this job more than worthwhile for me.

I believe all art is shaped by the time and place it came from. When I was younger I never had a dog so didn’t really venture into the landscape around Bromley but  naturally I feel connected to the greyness, the music and feel of the area even though I haven’t lived there in so long. The Cotswolds on the other hand is an expansive beautiful place. I walk in the hills behind where we live nearly every day with my dog. Music sounds amazing here. Just you, the dog, the music and the hills. The sun sets over the Malverns and the views from Cleeve hill are like something from the mind of Tolkien.  If I think about the films I enjoy they often have a strong connection to place  such as Heat (LA), Lantana (suburban Sydney), LA Haine (Paris) even something otherworldly like A Clockwork Orange is described through the detail of the Woolwich housing blocks. There is in fact a brilliant short film set in the Cotswolds called Field directed by Duane Hopkins but it appears to no longer be online, it is brilliant however. The images above are taken over the course of three or four outings into darkest Gloucestershire.

    The Cotswolds are so special. Dig how you relate it to music ..
