Destination Wedding in Koh Phangan, Thailand

I still remember how excited I was when Megan & Dan first told me of their plans to get married in Thailand. When they confirmed that they wanted to book me to shoot their wedding, I think I had to pinch myself several times. I woke up the next morning thinking I had dreamt the whole thing. I felt incredibly lucky!

Fast forward about 12 months…

Megan and Dan got married in August 2019, on the island of Koh Phangan, in the Gulf coast of Thailand - a place very dear to both of their hearts, and a place that they keep returning to, and will do for years to come.

Their wedding took place at the Beautiful Loyfa Natural Resort which was the perfect setting for the simple, stripped back vision that Megan had for an intimate beach wedding with their nearest and dearest.

I am totally honoured to have had the opportunity to shoot this incredible wedding and it will remain as one of my ultimate career highlights. To be able to document the rawness of these kinds of weddings is just a huge privilege. It is an experience I will never forget.

I will let the photos do the rest of the talking. Here are my favourites from the day…

Kate & John's quirky and colourful Summer wedding.

Happy 2019 to anyone reading this…

As January is often considered a bleak, cold and depressing month, I thought I would share one of my favourite summer weddings from 2018.

Kate and John got married at the Awesome Elephant at Pangbourne hotel in Berkshire, smack bang in the middle of July. I remember it well, as the UK had not experienced rainfall for what seemed like an eternity, and there wasn’t a green patch of grass in sight.

The couple did an amazing job at creating the perfect, colourful and quirky wedding with unique touches, handmade decorations and favours. Kate is a very talented Jewellery designer, so naturally, made the wedding bands and her own accessories to wear on the day.

I instantly hit it off with the couple as they were so warm and friendly, as were their family and guests. This wedding ticked all the boxes for me and I will always remember it.

Yes - we had incredibly harsh sunlight - ALL day along with brown, burnt grass and almost no shade whatsoever (in many ways a wedding photographers worst nightmare) but Kate and John’s day truly reminded me what weddings are about - Love, family, friends, laughs, those little special moments between people, and of course - The beautiful ordinary! (the stuff that tells a story, the stuff that pieces together the narrative.)

Thank you Kate & John - Here are some highlights from the day…

A Destination wedding in Portugal - Camelia & Tim

Well, what can I say about this wedding! It was all kinds of amazing and I feel so lucky I got the opportunity to capture it. 

When Camelia first contacted me about her wedding in Portugal I was extremely excited about the chance to document a destination wedding. It was a personal goal of mine, since becoming a wedding photographer, to travel as part of my job, and the fact that I got to see that dream come true was incredible. Now I am itching to photograph more weddings abroad, and see as much of this beautiful planet as possible, through my eyes and my lens...

Camelia and Tim got married at the stunning Quinta, Vintage Wedding  venue near Sintra, Portugal. It was the perfect location, up in the mountains,  but with gorgeous views of the atlantic ocean. The venue itself is a charming historical estate surrounded by the most beautiful gardens and for weddings,  is decorated in a vintage, eclectic style with unique pieces of furniture and details. 

I turned up the day before the wedding and immediately hit it off with the Tim and Camelia  - they were so warm and friendly and not only did I get on great with them, but all their friends and family. The day after the wedding was lovely and chilled and I was warmly welcomed into their post wedding celebration party to enjoy a BBQ and a few drinks before heading back to Lisbon airport for my flight home. 

The couple added their own twist on an already unique venue, decorating the outside of the building with brightly coloured balloons, which certainly gave an element of juxtaposition to the wedding setting. 

The whole day was amazing, sunny, family oriented,  and the wine flowed like water! It is definitely a wedding I will remember and I can't thank Tim and Camelia enough for getting to photograph their beautiful day.

Here a selection of my favourite images. I tried to cut them back more but it was impossible...

Polly & Dave

So, it's starting to get pretty dark and cold, as we drift into winter, so I thought I would share a nice pretty, light and summery wedding from this year...

Polly & Dave's wedding took place on a glorious day in the middle of June, at the lovely Barton Hall Hotel in Northamptonshire. The whole day was so beautiful and relaxed, I felt like I was a guest at their wedding, with the added honour of documenting their day.

There were so many beautiful aspects to this wedding, such as the ceremony in the orangery, the stunning bouquets and centrepieces featuring the most amazing peonies, and last but certainly not least, polly' utterly incredible, lace Pronovias gown. Oh, and those his and hers CAKES!!! OMG!

Thanks for having me guys!
