When I first spoke to Anna & Tom about their wedding, it was via Skype from their home in Nairobi. Their wedding was to take place in the lovely grounds of Anna's parents' home in Oxfordshire, but their home country became the basis of their theme. They brought Africa back with them, using a Tippee Tent beautifully decorated with vibrant tribal fabrics and birds. Friends from the World over came together to celebrate the occassion and they sure did know how to party!

It was a stunning, crisp winter's day when I attended Jon and Ali's wedding at Brownsover Hall Hotel in Warwickshire just a few days after Christmas. Family and friends gathered in this lovely hotel which looked particularly festive thanks to its rich red painted walls. Ali looked beautiful in her gown with extra sparkle thanks to some very pretty accessories. After the ceremony we headed outside to make the most of the crisp, golden shafts of light piercing the branches of some spectacular specimen trees.Read More
I love Christmas. I love photographing weddings. I really loved photographing this Christmas wedding! Guests braved the stormy conditions to gather at the pretty Cotswold church in Church Westcote near Burford and how beautiful bride and groom Zana & Ed's departure was thanks to nearly a hundred glittering sparklers waved by guests along the church pathway - really stunning. It was then back to Zana's parents house for Champagne,food and fun in a sumptuous marquee.
This was my first outing to photograph the hunt. Once I'd got used to the hounds (blimey they're bigger than I expected!) I got carried away with the flamboyant outfits and the tradition of it all. Getting covered in muddy dog paw prints was an experience never to be forgotten! North Cotswold Hunt
