Hastings wedding

I love weddings and always find that every wedding no matter how large or small is special. Jo and David’s wedding at St-Leonards-on-Sea near Hastings, Sussex, held at the beautiful church of St Matthews was no exception. Tying the knot watched by a close group of friends and family, then a wedding reception in the…

Eynsham Hall

Eynsham Hall is a popular wedding venue in the Oxford, Oxfordshire area and I took the opportunity to look around while doing a reccy for a wedding reception I am photographing there in August. I always like to visit the venues I’ll be photographing at in advance as it gives me a chance to find…

Alison & Richard

There are some weddings you know you just have to do… Richard and Alison’s was one of them, after all Richard is my cousin, so I offered and to my delight they accepted. That was last year. Their wedding was earlier in May and for the record the UK had just a serious amount of…

Feedback with a wow!

I do appreciate feedback from clients, as it helps me to improve what I offer in the way of photography to others. Otherwise all you have to go on is the actual business performance. Weddings are no exception and are a rather specific photographic situation that involve amongst other things consultations and discussions in advance,…

A winter wedding

Well the recent posts might have been slow, but its not through lack of being idle :-). Just before Christmas I drove over to Lavelsloh, Diepenau in Lower Saxony to photograph a friend’s wedding.

The reception is being held at the club which is made up of a modern multi million pound complex. A club house and sports halls. Events are typically held at the club house…

Wedding Surprise

One of my clients had a recent nice surprise. Without being told, her relatives had booked and put a deposit down for a wedding photographer. Very nice, except in the meantime the bride had requested my services, but not yet signed the contract. It could have ended up a very sticky situation created by some…

Testimonials

A couple who I took their wedding photos last year have just sent me a testimonial and its left me feeling rather embarrassed (in a good way!)… “Thank you for playing such a special part in our wedding day in May 2010, without you we would not have the precious images that we hold so…

FOCUS 2011 reflections

Well FOCUS 2011 was certainly worth going to for us, although it required quite a bit of organisation as it was the first weekend that Tini and me would have together without Benjamin and Benjamin’s first ever nights away staying with somebody else, namely his grandparents and aunty.. maybe I should have said ‘besotted’ there…
