Beth & Gareth

I first met Beth and Gareth last year at Andy and Ellie’s wedding in The Cotswolds. Being musicians they see a lot of weddings, but this time it was their own! It was a beautiful day in Beth’s home village in Oxfordshire and things could not have gone better. Put me in the middle of a sunny cornfield and I’m a happy man.

Laura and Ben

You don’t get many weddings like this. Laura and Ben are perfectly suited and delightfully eccentric, so when it came to them getting married, I knew it was going to be something special.
This one was heavy on the steam-punk and contained top hats, tails, pirate flags, a VW Camper, beards, plaits, glorious sunshine, an amazing kiss, cream tea and cakes, a gramophone DJ, pouring rain, the Clifton suspension bridge, a cemetery, a roast pig, hot air balloons, fire dancing and fireworks.
It’s also the first wedding where I got to use the bridal umbrella I bought 3 years ago!

Fantasy shoot

Today I met up with a group of models and photographers in the glorious Bristol sunshine, under the scaffolding clad Cabot Tower.

The theme of the shoot was fantasy, so dreamy shots in a natural background were the order of the day. I’ve also been wanting to do a photoshoot in some daffodils for ages!

Sophie has such vivid eyes that I couldn’t help concentrating my shooting on them – they really pop out of the photos without any real help from photoshop.



These were all shot with my Canon 50mm f/1.4 – I’m starting to get a feel for the prime lenses now – this could be an expensive habit…
