That's me on the left looking rather pleased with myself! The smile is hiding a whole lot of nerves though. The picture was taken in 2013, it was the first time I had been asked to photograph a royal event at Buckingham Palace; fortunately it wasn't the last! Since then, I have continued working along side Paul Burns; HRH Prince of Wales personal photographer, photographing royal events at St James Palace, Clarence House, Windsor Castle and closer to home Highgrove. Although, I have a busy 2017 ahead with royal events, these special occasions occur mainly week days; which leaves the weekends free for my real passion, wedding photography. I know that sounds a little cheesy but it's true. If I didn't love being part of a couple's special day, I would not have been photographing weddings for over 20 years. I can't think of any other profession, which would have allowed me to not only meet Royalty and Celebrities but also the privilege of photographing a couples wedding day. It's an added joy to return to photograph mother and bump then to capture a growing family. I can truly say I love being a photographer.
I have a reputation for creating a relaxed but fun atmosphere I don't domineer your day but listen and deliver the coverage you want... Combining both Romantic and candid styles of wedding photography your wedding album will capture the passion and excitement of your day.
