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.

Orchardleigh Wedding Day: Bridal Preparations

Let's take a look at a wonderful Orchardleigh wedding day, at the beautiful Orchardleigh Estate near Frome in Somerset! I always enjoy photographing weddings here, ever since my first visit, which must be about six or seven years ago. Over the years, Orchardleigh has...

Dorset Woodland Wedding at Home: Bridal Preparation

It's time to revisit a truly wonderful wedding day that I had the pleasure of photographing this summer, here in my home county of Dorset. This particular wedding was one I had been looking forward to documenting for a long time, for it was to be held in the...

Tarrant Monkton Wedding Photography : Preview Images

Have you ever visited the small Dorset village of Tarrant Monkton? If you have, you'll know how truly picturesque it is - the embodiment of beautiful Dorset rural life. That's just one of the reasons I was so excited to shoot a wedding in the village recently. I...

Bridport Wedding Photography : Previews

For many people, the idea of a wedding day involves two young people in love, celebrating with all their friends and family and followed by a huge evening reception. But, of course, love isn't restricted to twenty somethings - and weddings come in all shapes and...

Wedding Photography at Clevedon Hall : The Ceremony

It's time to take a look at another recent wedding ceremony - and this time, we're in Somerset at the wonderful Clevedon Hall near Bristol. Although I'm based in Dorset, I work all over Somerset, Dorset and Devon (plus further afield) and it was a pleasure to travel...

Outdoor Woodland Wedding in Dorset: Preview Images

This beautiful, outdoor woodland wedding which I recently photographed in Dorset just HAS to be one of the most beautiful experiences I've ever had as a wedding photographer and one of my all-time favourite weddings. I feel absolutely so honoured to have been there to...

Church Wedding at Brympton House

Let's pop over the Dorset country border to one of my favourite wedding venues in Somerset - Brympton House, near Yeovil. I've photographed weddings at Brympton House many, many times now, but it's relatively rare to get the opportunity to photograph a wedding...

Maunsel House Wedding : Previews

What a delight to be back as a Maunsel House wedding photographer for this lovely August wedding day! I always think of Maunsel House as the original 'party destination' when it comes to wedding celebrations, and this one certainly lived up to expectations in that...

Wedding Ceremony at Hanford School, Dorset

The title of this blog post is a little misleading, for whilst I was certainly present at this beautiful wedding ceremony at Hanford School in Dorset, and I was the wedding photographer, I wasn't allowed to photograph any of the ceremony! Every vicar has their own...

Holbrook House Wedding Photographer : Previews

This is a truly fabulous wedding that I was really thrilled to work on - and my first opportunity to work as a Holbrook House wedding photographer! The ceremony was held in one of my regular and most favourite wedding ceremony locations, Sherborne Abbey in Dorset,...

St Audries Park Wedding: The Ceremony

It's a rare day indeed when you get to photograph not one, but TWO wedding ceremonies during a St Audries Park wedding! No - it wasn't a double wedding (I haven't done one of those yet, but please feel welcome to make me an offer!). This beautiful wedding day belonged...

Knighton House Wedding Photographer: Preview Images

I was thrilled to have my first outing as a Knighton House wedding photographer last month - the only shame was that it rained pretty much all day, which meant that we couldn't take advantage of the gorgeous gardens and truly stunning views which are afforded from...
