I had the pleasure of meeting with and getting to know Antonia and James in the months leading up to the wedding, they both put so much effort into planning this incredible day.

Their Catholic service at the Oxford Oratory was simply beautiful, it’s such a stunning building and the light was near perfect.

The afternoon’s drinks reception had some heartfelt speeches, followed by fantastic evening entertainment at Notley Abbey.

I have so many favourite images from this memorable day, here are just a few…

Vishal & Seemh’s Asian Wedding In Essex

Seemh and Vishal’s exceptionally fun Asian wedding took place at Quendon Hall in Essex.

I love Asian weddings, as a company we collectively shoot between 10 and 15 large commissions each and every year and they’re always incredibly good fun to be part of.

The ceremonies are so intimate and it feels like such a genuine privilege to be welcomed in by the family to document such a personal event. My style of documentary wedding photography is perfectly suited to Asian weddings – there are so many elements to the day and with so few natural breaks, it makes for a really strong sense of narrative throughout final selection of images.

Here a just a few of my very favourites from this fantastic wedding in the picturesque Essex countryside.

In This Moment | Winter Sun

Winter sun is so beautiful to photograph. Fortunately in this instance the bridal party walked towards the church with the sun directly behind and overhead, giving the group of girls perfectly back-lit conditions.

In terms of substance or more ‘moment’, the three layers really put the girls into context wonderfully – the father of the bride in the foreground and the horse and carriage further back, aided by a gentle leading line on the right of the frame.

This subtle storytelling, timing and composition is what makes this image a particular favourite of mine.

Anthony & Rachel’s Rural Wedding in Shropshire

I photographed Rachel and Anthony’s beautiful wedding in the stunning Shropshire countryside last month. They were both incredible to work with, fully embracing my very natural style of wedding photography.

The ceremony took place in the village church just a short walk from the reception at Anthony’s family home in Waters Upton.

What a fun day to photograph – some highly entertaining speeches not to mention the bouncy castle (always many more adults than children to be found on these).

Thank you so much for photographs, they are amazing!
