Hollie and James – an Epic London Wedding

It was one of the hottest days of the year – enough for the tube to be warning people to carry water around with them. Obviously, I dutifully obliged, two bottles stuffed into my bag along with my cameras and lights as I chased Hollie and James around London. Three...

Christina and John at the York Hospitium

The way I see it, I’ve got a pretty simple job. I meet with a couple, chat with them, get to know them a little bit, find out what makes them amazing and then put that into a bunch of photos. Awesome photos, obviously. But I want to be able to see what they see in...

Chrissie and Simon – Cubley Hall wedding photography

The phrase ‘intimate wedding’ gets used an awful lot. I used to think it meant just a small number of people, but the longer I do this job (and I use the term ‘job’ loosely!) the more I realise it’s nothing to do with size. It’s about the people and who you celebrate...

Nick and Sam – A Harrogate wedding

Nick and Sam – A Harrogate wedding

One thing I see again and again is how a wedding brings people together. Friends you’ve not seen for years, or family members who live on the other side of the world. They’ll all come out for a celebration, especially if it’s your celebration, and even more so if...

Left Bank wedding photography – HG and Will

I may have mentioned it before, but weddings are celebrations. Celebrating with your nearest and dearest that you’ve found the ‘one’. Getting all your friends back in one room. And in the case of Will’s mum – getting all your children back in the same country, let...

Matfen Hall – I remember it well. There’s always something very special about snow on your wedding day. Obviously, snow is pretty special anyway, but when you have crisp white sheets of the cold stuff stretched out in front of you, it’s pretty magical. And when you’re...

And that was 2018…

And that was 2018…

I’m not saying this year has gone quickly, but last time I checked it was February. So when I came to put together this post it was all “Oh, of course!”, “Really? That was this year?” and “How on earth could I forget THAT?!” Basically, what I’m trying to say is that...

Gemma and Alex at Rogerthorpe Manor

From time to time I get asked to help out with other photographers. The bride and groom want a second pair of eyes for the day, and I’m more than happy to oblige. No photographer can be in every place all the time, so a second shooter can really help out. Not only can...

Barnsley Youth Choir – Underneath the Stars

Barnsley Youth Choir – Underneath the Stars

 A few weeks ago, I spent a day with Barnsley Youth Choir as they performed at the Underneath the Stars festival. Not only is this choir insanely talented (rated 4th in the world), but the sheer scale of organising something with this many young people is mind...

Laura and Elliott – Partying hard at the Hepworth

I’m not saying that the pictures aren’t perfectly self-explanatory, but I feel a little back story helps. Meet Elliott and Laura. They were married earlier this year in Mexico. No, I wasn’t invited. No, I don’t want to talk about it. Destination weddings are a...

Becca and Naomi – The Out Barn at Clough Bottom

It’s become a bit of a cliché to say that no wedding is the same. And it’s easy to argue against – two people get married, then people eat, drink and dance. But that’s entirely missing the point. Every story is different. There are some couples you’d never put...

Megan and Luke – Harrogate wedding photography

There’s no question about it. The most important part of a wedding are the people who surround you as you get married. The people who remember the story that your Dad told during his speech, the people throwing awesome shapes next to you on the dance floor, and the...
