Shelly and Tim’s wedding was a small intimate celebration with a civil ceremony at this beautiful country wedding venue, an ideal backdrop for an Autumn wedding. The weather was just as you would expect the perfect October day, crisp, still and sunny! Shelly got ready with her bridesmaids at the hotel and Tim arrived nice and early so I could do some great photographs before the wedding.

Traveling from Cambridge meant that I left quite early and ended up at Notley Abbey at 10am! Still I much prefer to be early and given the fine weather it was lovely to wonder round and search for photographic locations. Both Sara and Chris got ready at Notley Abbey, which made my job easier to catch all the preparations. The ceremony went really well and we were able to take most of the photos outside. The close-up magician was fantastic leaving everyone guessing “just how did he do that?” After the group photo everyone went through to dinner which was set in a beautiful 13th century stone barn (originally the Monks' Refectory) preceded by the speeches. It certainly looked like everyone, especially the happy couple had a fabulous time...Enjoy the preview.

The day started for me with Tom and the boys at his parents house in Ely. After a few fun shots in the neighbour’s garden I headed over to Bluntisham where Caroline’s parents live for the preparations. Caroline looked fantastic in her beautiful
Ian Stewart wedding dress and beautifully complimented by her gorgeous bridesmaids. The happy couple met when they were at Kings School together, which permits a wedding ceremony at the Cathedral. As you will see from the preview the Cathedral is absolutely stunning, and the perfect place to marry. After a few family photos we headed to a wedding venue called The Red Barn just outside Downham Market in Norfolk. This old barn has loads of character and with all the tables dressed and candles lit it feels so romantic. The speeches were some of the best I have seen, with so much humour, there was lots of laughter that resonated round the barn. Enjoy the preview!

Jon and Liz were students at Cambridge University some years ago with Liz studying at Jesus College and Jon at Magdalene which is a beautiful college set right on the River Cam in the heart of the City. I met up with the boys at College quite early and got all their shots in the bag before 10.45am - impressive for a 12.30pm service. Although Liz was a little delayed we still managed to “get her to the church on time”. The ceremony was fantastic with friends singing in the choir that was also conducted by Jon’s father. A choir in a college chapel really does sound amazing - I have heard a few and it still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up! After the ceremony the guests played croquet on the lawn while we did some lovely pictures of the happy couple. Enjoy the preview....

I am glad to say that lots of my couples have been so lucky with the weather this year, considering just how unpredictable it has been. The sun shone all day for Hannah and Stephen. The wedding was at St Peter’s Church in Moulton, a church I am now very familiar with especially as I photographed Hannah’s brothers wedding there some 7 years ago. After a lovely ceremony we went back to the Jockey Club in Newmarket, a very prestigious
wedding venue in Suffolk for some photos in a spectacular setting...Enjoy the preview.

I arrived at Longstowe Hall with plenty of time to spare, especially as Claire and her Dad were 20 minutes late - wonder what was going through Niki’s mind!?

The ceremony was at a wonderful Cambridge wedding venue Longstowe Hall which is a private house set in the most gorgeous grounds. I love working at this venue. After the civil service there was also a jewish ceremony that took place under the Hooper outside. I got a fantastic shot across the lake when a swan flew into the picture and landed with its wings out stretched - just perfect timing! Enjoy the preview.

Probably the industry's leading professional photography magazine, Photo Pro, contacted me some weeks back and asked me to write an article on social portrait photography. Having been in the business of wedding and portrait photography for some 15 years, I certainly have the experience to pass on! I really enjoyed writing the article which covered things like how I got started, what gear I use, and how to photograph people of different ages. My work is very diverse, and so I was able to give a real insight into the different aspects of portrait photography, both on location and in the studio.

What a scorching summers day Saturday was. After meeting with the boys at the church in West Wratting, I went on to Joanna’s parents house where she was getting ready. I knew her face was familiar when we first discussed the wedding plans - I had photographed the family some 10 years earlier when I worked for a Cambridge studio. I recognised all the family pictures in the house; small world as they say!
Anyway the wedding was beautiful and their reception was back at the house in a wonderful marquee. It was great to work with some of my favourite wedding professionals on the day including the fantastic

I think we were all concerned about the British weather on Friday, in particular the travelling issues as there were a lot of guests coming from all parts of the country. Anyway the snow held off and everyone had a fantastic day. Having already photographed Gemma’s sister’s wedding last June it was really nice to see some familiar faces, as normally I only every know the couple before the day. Hope you enjoy the preview - please post any comments on our FACEBOOK page - thanks.

SWPP Photography Convention London

Hi Everyone

I have just come back from an amazing four days at the SWPP convention in London - the largest of its kind in Europe. I gave two talks to many photographers across the UK, Europe and the US. I was sharing 15 years of my experience in the industry of wedding and portrait photography. We were packed out with people standing and sitting on the floor - we even had to turn people away!

Our talks were all about how we ensure the best customer service, offer consistent high quality photography, and receive testimonials from most of our clients. Thanks to all those who attended, and thanks to those who have already sent us positive feedback.

I hope to be doing some more talks this year - please let me know if you are interested...

Face of Cambridge 2008 - Winner

Our many congratulations go to Susie Diver, our winner of the Face of Cambridge competition 2008. Launched in the Style magazine, the competition has been very popular bringing us many faces to photograph over the last year. I visited Debbie Tweedie, the editor of Style, last week for her to pick a winner for us. “All the pictures were fantastic, so much variety. Our magazine follows fashion carefully and it really shows that our readers are style conscious. Together with Mark’s great fashion photography, I found it very difficult to select a winner.”

With the help of some of the other girls on Debbie’s team, we settled on Susie’s picture. “Her eyes in this image are just amazing, and such a natural expression, we just kept coming back to this photograph”, says Debbie.

Susie has won £500 worth of photography from us and is delighted to win. Check out the Style magazine in February for a full article and story.

In the mean time, we are now looking for the Face of Cambridge 2009. For just £30 you will have a professional make up session and hair-styling, followed by a fashion shoot. £15 of this fee is donated to Breast Cancer.
