Wedding Fair Season!

Its Wedding Fair Season!

A busy time of year with so much planning and excitement about 2024 weddings and beyond! Have you got all your suppliers yet?

The Fair at Dunster Tithe Barn was a great success with many people looking to book, this weekend I am at St Audries Open day on Sunday 28th and the week after at The Castle Taunton Wedding Fair!

Hope to see you at one of these upcoming events for a chat about you day and the possibilities, there will be so many quality supplier options available to suit everyone! As well as things you may not have even thought about!

 

A few things to think about your wedding photography:

Apart from pictures of you both, what is the most important picture you want to capture on the day?

How important are groups shots to you?

What areas of the venue would you say are important to include in your photo’s?

Would you like all the pictures outside or a mixture with inside being included?

Please ask me anything when I see you at the fairs but also via email or just over the phone!

First wedding of 2024

It was a beautiful January day in North Devon the sun was shining and the cool crisp morning air was refreshing! Today was the day Marc & Claire would get married at the lovely Sandy Cove Hotel in Ilfracombe! It was such a relaxed day with a handful of guests, just the way they wanted it! The service took place early afternoon near the terrace of the hotel overlooking the sea! We had a subtle Disney theme and the cake very much embodied that! After some small groups pictures we visited the beach for some creative images! and later some nighttime sparklers and flash images, what a great start to 2024 Congratulations and best wishes for the future Marc & Claire!

New Website

Welcome to my new look website! There are now venue specific pages from just some of my 2023 weddings! Here you'll see a selection from St.Audries, Crowcombe Court, Quantock Lakes, Mount Edgcumbe and Taunton School - where I am very pleased to be a recommended photographer! 

Thank you to all of my couples for making this possible, it has been an amazing journey with you all since 2007 and I can't wait for more! 

If you haven't already noticed - I specialise in Natural Candid Photography! On the day, I will of course capture a wide variety of images - from group shots, (which you can specify) the beautiful details of your chosen decoration, a big focus on pictures of you both of course; moving through to the evening with potential for sunsets and night-time flash photography! This is a personal favourite of mine too, pop across to the portfolio to have a look at some of these and you'll understand why!
