I love Elaine and Ed. There, I said it. A couple of fellow Brummies into their rock and alternative, I knew we’d get along well from our first meeting in the pub. They are one of the loveliest couples I think I’ve ever met too.
We headed over to Cannock Chase to do their pre-wedding shoot. It was a freezing cold, but lovely sunny day, perfect for a winter shoot. I’ve never been to Cannock Chase and have to say I loved it, it makes me want to get a dog just so I have an excuse to go and walk around there more often. Also, The Gruffalo lives there, need I say more?
Here’s a couple of sneaky peeks from Ellie & Jack’s wedding at Botley’s Mansion in Surrey.
Milly and T-bone of MojoHooker stardom (their official names) are very good friends of mine and Simon and it was an absolute honour to go to and photograph their über cool festival style wedding.
Cam always (always) looks effortlessly amazing and totally cool, I’m super envious of her ability to throw on a bin bag and look hot. Her wedding day was no exception, she totally rocked it and I’ve never seen her look more beautiful. I think it’s safe to say Tony agreed and the tears were a-flowin as Cam walked down the aisle with her proud dad.
They got married at a church in Little Aston and then went on to Hayhead Farm in Walsall. They painstakingly arranged, organised, hand-made and crafted everything themselves, along with all the efforts of their generous families and it paid off. Totally. The day was Cam and Tony down to a T. Loads of booze, LOADS of music, great food, super relaxed, quirky and thoughtful details and just a whole lot of fun all made this day just awesome.
To see these pair get married was just beautiful and I can not be happier for them. Love you guys, you’re deeeeeeelicious xxx

Let me introduce Vics and Roro, two of our bessie mates and fellow cat crazies. We had the privilege of capturing their wedding for them May last year at the gorgeous Redhouse Barn in Stoke Prior in Worcestershire. It was a gloriously sunny day, and they both looked absolutely stunning. Check out Victoria’s tiny waist line in that gorgeous dress, and that train? Epic.
They are such a caring and happy couple, always laughing and never taking life too seriously, you can definitely always count on them for some giggles, as well as knowing they are there for you, always.
I loved the cake table with loads of cupcakes and details showing their love for travel with sentimental photos as a reminder of loved ones sadly unable to be there. The giant cheese tower was also totally delicious looking (and tasting) and a good alternative for those not loving a traditional wedding cake, I’m a big fan. The huge, tall flowers made great statement table centres and the travel theme continued through in the stationery (designed by Vics’ sister) which was a lovely touch.
The evening was amazing too, we all partied hard (as you will see) and it was the best end to the best day.
Congratulations Vics and Rory, love you guys.

We photograph families and kids too, and we love it!
Amanda and Olly are on their way to becoming my most photographed couple. We shot their wedding back in 2012 and have since done a few shoots for Amanda’s company ‘Fresh Public Relations’ and a family shoot for them when Ben was only a couple of weeks old (see the shoot here Amanda, Olly & Ben). I love these guys, they are so fun to hang out with and I’m really happy to share their latest family shoot with you.
How cute are these two and their dogs?! Very is the answer. Charles works as a forestry consultant (jealous much!) and the gorgeous Hazel is a vet, so dogs and trees were the perfect combination for their e-shoot. We had such fun at Beacon Hill and Si and I are really looking forward to their wedding in September. Si is filming it and I’m photographing it which is ace fun, we love doing our joint packages.
Here are some favourites from the shoot, check out Charles hugging a tree, love it.
