Tuscany Elopement at Agriturismo Le Bolli, Radicondoli

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.

Bellissimo!

Sean and Goa | Edinburgh, Portobello Engagement shoot

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!

Paradise Island Wedding, Pulau Joyo, Indonesia

With all this cold weather it’s an ideal time to dream of warmer climates. This was one of the most incredible weddings I have ever photographed. Last April I had the pleasure of photographing the stunning wedding of Sarah and Daniel Ruston on the private Island of Pulau Joyo.

Palm Trees-1

Pulau Joyo is a tiny private Indonesian island off the coast of Singapore. The journey there was very exciting, filled with anticipation from all the guests. After taking the ferry to Pula Bintan, we had a very bumpy bus ride across the Island. We were well and truly off the beaten track. After driving through the jungle we arrived at a small wooden jetty where we boarded a private speed boat that took us further into the Java Sea towards our private island.

On the eve of the wedding all the Island guests had a beach BBQ under the stars, with the melodic sounds of reggae in the background it was the perfect way to relax before the big day.

Wedding day is here and the day guests arrive in style. They were met by Sarah and Dan along with warm smiles and cool drink from the Island staff.

The bride and groom’s beach hut was beautiful. Their steps lead straight out onto the hot sand, with a gorgeous view of the sea. As Sarah got her hair done you could hear the gentle waves rolling in against the shore.

Whilst Sarah relaxed with some fizz, Dan was able to have one last swim to cool off around the pool before getting ready. I have never photographed such a relaxed wedding, I totally loved the chilled island vibes.

What an entrance! Sarah and her father, Nigel walked through the shade of palm trees towards her husband to be, the sun certainly knew who was the star of the show.

As the sun almost set to allow the evening party to begin I took the opportunity to get some shots with Sarah and Dan. What an amazing first view to experience together as husband and wife!

Let the party begin! What a party it was, with a bar down on the beach, the ice cold beers were cracked open, a fine selection of spirits helped the celebrations continued into the early hours.

This was a truly remarkable wedding, and one I will never forget. Thank you Sarah and Dan for finding this paradise and inviting me to photograph your day.
