With only seven guest invited, this wedding was very special. I felt so lucky to witness and photograph such a small and intimate wedding between two people who are so madly in love.
Marriage is about the celebration of love, the love you have for your partner and also the love your family and friends combine together for you as a couple. This wedding was a beautiful celebration of love.

I love shooting weddings at The Edinburgh City Chambers. The venue is right in the heart of Edinburgh, placed half way up the famous Royal Mile, linking Edinburgh Castle and The Queens Palace.
Rowan and Alice got married here on the 17th August, 2018 close family and friends gathered bringing even more excitement to the bustling Royal Mile.
Their ceremony was relaxed and full of fun and laughter. It was a total pleasure to photograph.

Paul and Leila eloped in an intimate ceremony with their immediate families in the romantic Tuscan countryside. I was honoured to be asked to shoot their wedding. It was an amazing and beautiful start to their marriage.
They stayed in idyllic Villa le Bolli, an ideal retreat to relax and celebrate with their family. Looking out over the pool and up into the hills you can see the town of Radicondoli where Paul and Leila were married by the mayor of the town. The ceremony was in Italian, and then translated, adding to the romance of the day.
Leila’s auntie put together the flower arrangements with locally bought flowers. What a beautiful job she did. There was a special atmosphere in the villa, with the love of family, creating the perfect wedding.

The reason I am a wedding photographer is because I love taking photos of happy people in love, people having fun and living life to the full. Photographs take people back to special times and memories, I feel honoured to be able to do that and I love my job!

The City Chambers sits right on The Royal Mile, in-between the magnificent Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, one of the Queens Residences. What a special place for Katie and Patoung to get married and celebrate their love.
Katie and Patoung met in Loas. Patoung is Lao, and Katie is Scottish. Their wedding created a beautiful sense of two families coming together to celebrate.
Most people find planning one wedding hard work. Katie and Patoung had three wedding celebrations. Yes that’s right, three weddings! They officially got married here in Edinburgh where I had the privilege of photographing them. They also had ceremonies both in Asia and France, to celebrate with family that couldn’t travel to Scotland.
After a short walk up the Royal Mile we got to their venue, just perfect, a gorgeous garden with a view of the city where everyone could enjoy the celebrations together!
Thank you Katie and Patoung for inviting me to photograph your beautiful wedding. What a great day it was full of laughter, love and celebration.

It was an absolute pleasure to photograph Tim and Alice’s wedding at the grand Didsbury House Hotel in Manchester last summer. The wedding was a huge celebration from start to finish, full of vibrant and fun guests. I was able to photograph my favourite thing, natural shots filled with laughter and love.
The bride and her bridesmaids all got ready in the penthouse room in the hotel, allowing for plenty of time for a few glasses of fizz to calm the nerves.
The ceremony was in the Blue Lounge within the luxury Victorian Townhouse. There were tears of joy, loving moments and lots of cheering from enthusiastic friends as Tim and Alice made their vows. The room erupted as they were announced husband and wife.
Didsbury House Hotel is stunning, a brilliant backdrop for the a group shot. The weather was fantastic, it was one of the hottest days of the year with gorgeous blue skies, making those first celebratory drinks taste all the better for the guests! The balcony was the perfect spot for some shots from above.
A short walk in the sunshine got us to the sister venue, a walled garden for drinks and the breakfast meal.
I truly felt like I was in Malta rather than Manchester, the setting for their meal was incredible. Open and lots of light, a gorgeous place to have their first meal as husband and wife.
I love these shots of Tim and Alice, what a gorgeous couple. We didn’t have to go far to get these shots, the guests were mingling about 5 metres away to the right as the newly weds snuck off for a quick kiss and to get a few special photos for their wall.
The group shots were very casual and a great laugh. I like to photograph as discretely as possible and not alter the flow of the day. With groups shots though, I do think it is important to get all those special people with the bride and groom in one photo together, these are the pictures that will really be cherished.
Now, I must mention the heartfelt and very emotional speeches, they had everyone laughing one minute and crying the next. It was clear how much love their was for Tim and Alice.
After the speeches and the delicious BBQ, the guests returned to the Townhouse to party the night away. What a great party it was, lots of dancing, drinking, chatting and fantastic music including a live saxophonist playing along side the DJ. I was loving the tunes and dancing away whilst taking photos, I didn’t want to leave.
Congratulations Tim and Alice. It was a truly fantastic day and a total privilege to photograph, thank you for including me in your special day.
