As a wedding photographer, I come across many couples...and yet it never gets old, never gets confusing. Each wedding I photograph remains a unique affair in my memory, and although over the months I might cease to remember the types of flowers or the color scheme that my past clients had at their wedding, I will always remember what makes them special as a couple. This quickly became obvious to me when I first met Lexy and Matt for their engagement shoot
in Oxford. They operated on the same wavelength, and while Lexy was shy, Matt was always quick to make her laugh. Their friends knew they were meant for each other when they couldn't stop chattering about their latest and greatest idea to save beavers. Like I mentioned after their engagement shoot, it's hard not to go "awww" once you've spent five minutes with them. (Read more...)

Who can forget Jessica and Matt, the adorable couple whose engagement session was featured on Whimisical Wonderland Weddings? To say that after our Oxford engagement shoot I was looking forward to their wedding would be the understatement of the year. Jessica is not only a natural beauty who has a face that my camera loves to bits, she also has the most lovable personality ever! I just want to put her in my pocket and take her home! (Okay, I don't, stop giving me dirty looks Matt.) Aaanywho, like I said after our engagement session, Matt is also a treat to work with. Easy-going and amicable, I can totally see how the two of them compliment each other. All right, I think I've said enough for now...scroll on down to see this amazing Coventry wedding!

Kerry and Rick's wedding was full of unforgettable moments. Kerry was a spirited bride with a bubbly smile that's just irresistable, and to top it off, she was surrounded by the cuuuutest little flower girls who would giggle and twirl every 5 minutes. The ceremony took place in one of the prettiest churches I have ever been to: St Edwards Church in Netley. I have the good fortune of living in Oxford, which is surely one of the most beautiful places in the world, but even then, I felt honored to be able to photograph such a beautiful location. It was a completely fitting venue for a couple like Kerry and Rick. (Read more...)

Cass and Josh tied the knot on the 16th of July 2011 in a little church in Gloucester, and there were more than a few sniffles as the two said their vows to each other. I don't have to tell you how beautiful Cass looked because you can see that for yourself, but what the images don't tell you is that Cass is one of the sweetest brides in the world. Following their touching ceremony, there was a reception at Hatton Court, a charming hotel in the Cotswolds that has lush ivy curtained over its facade. It was the perfect venue for our stylish bride Cass!

Here's a wedding I've been just dying to share! Sue-Anne and Dom had their beautiful wedding in Kent a couple of months ago, and I simply could not stop staring and gushing at all of the beautiful details that Sue-Anne had poured into making her wedding simply amazing. From soft pink peonies adorning the reception rooms at Sundridge Park Manor to the pristine ivory cake, everything had obviously been planned and executed to perfection.
Obviously I don't need to tell you just how pretty Sue-Anne was. My camera loved her to bits! Dom, ever so suave in his spotless tux, was also a joy to work with. He slipped into all these dashing poses effortlessly...which is quite a rarity amongst men. ;) And augh, I could NOT get enough of the three little pageboys...they taught me quite a bit about posing and shooting kids, so I will have to do a techniques post on them soon. Sue-Anne and Dom, you guys were just so lovely, and your friends and family were the friendliest bunch of people I've met. I hope you two had a wonderful and relaxing honeymoon, you completely deserve it!

When I first met Marvin and Melissa, I knew I was in for a treat, and boy was I right. Melissa was just a joy to work with-- she was easy with her smiles and as a bride she was a sight to behold.
The morning of the wedding, as Melissa slipped into her frothy white dress and tucked fresh rosettes into her hair, it was hard for anyone in the room to keep from tearing up.
Needless to say, everything about their wedding, from the intimate chapel ceremony to the swanky reception at the Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, was a blast to photograph.
