I meant to post a couple of pictures from the wedding of Briony and Thomas a while back. Now we have the nicer weather I thought I would add these two images to show the kind of wedding pictures you can capture when the sun makes an appearance through the clouds.
Briony looked fabulous in her amazing wedding dress and it was a pleasure to capture its fine detail on the day.
My thanks to you both for allowing us to take so many photographs during the day. Here are a few.

Congratulations to Theresa and Martin for their recent wedding at the Dover Marina Hotel, in Dover Kent.
The day was overcast but at least there was little rain and all wedding guests enjoyed themselves. In the evening I took advantage of the lights from the docks and the ferries to provide some nice night time illumination for the evening pictures.
My thanks to Theresa and Martin for allowing Allison and I to take your wedding pictures!
Here are a few images from the day:
We had the great pleasure to photograph the wedding of Sally and Jason, who’s reception was held at the Casa Hotel here in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The day threatened rain but thankfully we only had blustery conditions to deal with. Thankfully we used this to our advantage to obtain some creative veil shots with Sally.
The couple had organised some surprises for the guests, one being a wonderful old bus and the other was an evening with Elvis. The Elvis impersonator was truly exceptional and provided a wonderful evening’s entertainment – which we photographed to the full!
My thanks to Sally and Jason, and for asking us to finally put own the cameras and enjoy a “well deserved” beer with them.
Here are a few of the wedding pictures from the day:
The forecast for the weather wasn’t great but there was only a slight chance of rain for the wedding of Grace and Alex at Birtsmorton Court. Happily, the grey of the sky dissipated as the morning wore on and almost perfect lighting conditions presented themselves by mid day – just right for wedding photography. I considered myself very lucky and looked forward to getting the wedding photographs of the couple.
Grace, her family and bridesmaids welcomed us at the pre-prep and we started our usual routine only this time a pair of videographers were also present. We were a little cramped but actually worked very well together and thus helped raise the energy level with the bride and bridesmaids – who did not stop smiling all day!
Lighting conditions within the church were not great for the ceremony itself but I am used to this and so approached the task with low-light lenses and settings. This made for some lovely emotional shots of the couple.
The reception and subsequent wedding photographs were a joy to capture in the grounds of Birtsmorton Court, where we had previously had the pre-wedding shoot.
My thanks to Grace, Alex and all who made us feel so welcome and for being a part of a wonderful wedding.

The evening do!
The day started much cloud and although ideal for wedding photography lighting we were hoping the weather would hold and perhaps become a little brighter for the wedding of Adrian and Maria and their reception at Keele Hall, Keele University. I had visited Keele Hall near Stoke On Trent previously for the pre-wedding shoot and was hoping for exactly the same conditions. Ably assisted by my second shooter for the day, Jeff Jones, we made our way to the home of Maria’s parents.
Our photography started with bridal preparation photographs with Maria, her parents and the bridesmaids and flower girl. Light levels were particularly low but we obtained a lovely set of pictures to start the day well. We then made our way to the church in order to give ourselves time to photograph the guests arriving and to capture the unique entrance that Adrian and the Groomsmen were going to perform.
The church was surprisingly bright and spacious allowing us to take advantage of different locations – which helped with the two entrances we then photographed!
Keele Hall as ever, proved a wonderful location for the reception and group pictures and we even managed to obtain some Hollywood style pictures in the evening – my thanks to Adrian and Maria for wanting to join in and enjoy this fun activity too.
It was a wonderful and long day of photography but well worth it as we obtained some truly unique wedding pictures.
Thank you Adrian and Maria!.
Here are just a few of the wonderful wedding pictures we took:
