After first meeting Angie and Keith I was really looking forward their wedding day. The ceremony took place at the Windsor Guildhall where Prince Charles and Camila got married only a few years before, It was beautiful inside. As soon as you walk into the main hall it’s very grand, very fitting as Keith's family came all the way over from Ireland. I really admire how Angie and Keith managed to organise the wedding and think of everyone involved. Angie’s father was very unwell at the time and so it was a particularly emotional day. I loved seeing him proudly walk Angie down the aisle. We then had the afternoon celebrations at the Castle Hotel Windsor. After the wedding breakfast and emotional speeches I soon discovered that nobody parties like the Irish. I always love staying later at weddings to capture the party atmosphere. The Irish folks gave me so much as a photographer it was funny and beautiful! Here are a few of my favourite images.
When I first met Debra and Joe at the art pavilion mile end I was immediately touched by how warm and friendly they were as people. And I felt very much the same about their close family and friends on the wedding day itself. A reflection of them as a couple. It was far from your typical wedding day, in fact I cant think of one remotely like it in 2016. I photograph quite a number of church and registry office weddings, this all took place in an art gallery. There was an energy all day that had me looking everywhere for things to capture, particularly as we moved into the evening celebrations. As you'll see in one particular picture the dance floor couldn't of been more lively at the end of the evening. A wonderful end to a very special wedding day. One I certainly wont forget. Here are a few of my favourites.
"We're very pleased that we found you - honestly we couldn't have asked for more beautiful pictures, or a lovelier man to take them! you captured so many lovely moments. It's brought tears to both of our eyes to see them!"

Egbe & Peter are one of the loveliest couples I have had the pleasure of working with. Right from the beginning I loved seeing the connection they have. That made it all the more enjoyable for me as their wedding photographer. We first met at Frensham ponds for a get to know you shoot and within minutes I remember feeling so excited about the wedding day. When It came around I was welcomed with open arms by both families, Peter's traveling all the way from the Isle of man and Egbe's family members from London originally coming from a Nigeria. If you'd told me a couple of years before that I would be photographing a beautiful and unique wedding like this I perhaps would of been surprised. From photographing Egbe getting ready in the morning right the way through to leaving the dancefloor at the end of the night It was a real pleasure. I loved seeing family members from two different cultures mingle and get on so well. It was a great atmosphere which helped me blend in and document the events of the day. Thank you Egbe and Peter for asking me to photograph your special it was a pleasure.
