When I was asked to photograph Rebecca and Lucian’s wedding I was delighted. This wonderful mix of English, Romanian and Italian guests made for a wonderful cocktail of nations who despite not being able to speak many of their languages were still all warm and welcoming to each other and myself! With Rebecca’s two super fun and energetic bridesmaids ‘Emma & Loiuse’ to help get Rebecca ready and ensure that nothing went wrong, the day went smoothly. After a warm welcoming from Rebecca’s parents we got down to the bridal prep. I’d like to thank Daphne & Stuart for the endless offerings off coffee and food throughout the morning! After a seamless morning getting Rebecca ready we made our way to the nearby Holy Trinity Church near Reading. There I met up with Lucian and the rest of his family! The service was wonderful with a live choir and plenty of colourful ‘feel good’ songs sang. After they tied the knot we travelled to the nearby Calcot Hotel for the reception. The hotel put on a lovely spread and decorated the room in the most amazing way. There were so many touching moments such as the first dance between Rebecca and her dad and the speeches made in multiple languages. I couldn’t possibly go into them all.

I’d like to thank Vasile as well for offering me a drink in the evening and for everyone else who made me feel welcome!
Please raise a glass for the new Mr & Mrs Obreja!

Recently I was honoured to be asked to capture the evening of a Daughters 18th Birthday party near Gatwick airport. This special birthday marked Emilys transition into a adult but theres always room for fun no matter how old you are! Emily had a fantastic turn out of close friends and school colleagues! I want to thank everyone for making me feel very welcome and being not just the photographer but part of the night and fun!  Happy Birthday Emily!

Today I was at Virginia Water Great Windsor Park to photograph the engagement of Kirsty and Jon. Despite the freezing temperatures it did not stop them showing warmth and affection for each other! Kirsty and Jon really enjoyed themselves and we got some great photos of them off the beaten track. I do love working in the in amongst trees and with a low sun adds all the more intimacy to the photo! After a couple of hours we warmed up with a hot drink in the very venue they’ll be wed in. The venue is beautiful and I really cant wait to get to work with this lovely couple again later this April! With plenty more photos to come, keep an eye on the website.

It gives me great pleasure to now show you some sample photo’s from Sam & Tasha’s gorgeous wedding in Wokingham! This wedding took place in a stunning marquee set up on a farm near to where the Ceremony was held. Tasha looked absolutely stunning and so did the venue. Despite some rain it did not dampen the spirits of the guests and everyone had a wonderful day! Please enjoy some samples and feel free to get in touch should you have any questions regarding your own wedding! Click the photo to see more.

This week I had the pleasure of being asked to photograph a cake smash for baby George’s 1st birthday! We had a real laugh photographing ‘curious George’ as it turns out he ‘loves’ to throw things. Mix that trait with food and you get, well, a ‘smashing’ time! My favourite moment had to be when he tried to throw a big chunk of icing only for it to land onto of his head, of course he was oblivious to where it had gone but it was much to our amusement! After play time he had a little bath and again more laughs with him throwing his sponge out of the bath and the letter ‘e’ falling off the side of the bath, changing the wording ‘I am one’ to I am on’.

I can’t wait to get the rest of the pictures to the client and see their reaction from this super fun and cute baby cake smash! More photos will appear soon!
