the real wedding blog

Gorgeous real weddings, company news, exciting offers and fascinating insights into the world of photography. Grab your reading glasses,a glass of wine and a comfy seat, as you may be here a while!

All my latest weddings are covered in detail here, so if you want to get a really good feel for my work, then this is definitely the place to start.

Don’t forget to take a look at my other blog sections:-  one featuring individual images or ‘wedding highlights’ which I feel show off the best of wedding photography, and one showcasing inspirational wedding images & advice.
