The Wedding of Steph & Paul in their own back garden!

It doesn’t get more chilled than getting married at your own home…

Steph & Paul tied the knot in their own back garden in a beautiful marquee with some of their nearest and dearest. What more do you need? Well… throw in a musical duo, great wine and some seriously snazzy waistcoats and you’ve got yourself one heck of a shindig!

It was late September and the rain had decided to crash the wedding without an invite… Fortunately the last minute, mass purchase of white umbrellas saved the day and made for some lovely memories and images!

The marquee was decorated beautifully, with fairy lights, chandeliers and every table featuring napkins with the pooch personalised family crest! (It’ll make sense when you see it!)

I could go on and on about the lovely laid back atmosphere and friendly faces I found on this special day, but instead i’ll leave you with a selection of my favorite shots!

Cheerio, Pip-Pip, bye for now!

The Wedding of Richard & Michelle @ Arundel Town Hall


Yep, thats right… I was a guest and the photographer for this one…

I was honoured and excited when I was asked to shoot Richard & Michelle’s big day, but there are a few major differences as a photographer when you shoot a family wedding! The most noticeable being just how tricky it is to catch those candid moments… everyone wants to chat or see what you’re doing! OH… and not to mention that I’m ‘on duty’, so the champers had to wait!

Even with these differences, this was a fab day! I arrived at Arundel Town Hall ( to capture Richard, our family and friends gathering for the ceremony. Before long, Michelle and her bridesmaids arrived looking fabulous and keeping with tradition ensured they made a fashionably late entrance! (Richard needs to be kept on his toes after all)

I’m sure the newly married couple won’t mind me saying that this was one of the most bonkers weddings I have had the pleasure of shooting! Richard & Michelle nailed it… Showing their guests what love and marriage is really about. Being yourself, having fun and never taking yourself too seriously! (I’m fairly confident they said most of the right things in some of the right places… Maybe?!)

After the livliest ceremony I’ve witnessed, we gathered outside for a celebratory glass of fizz and a few group shots. I can assure you, the phrase ‘HERDING CATS’ doesn’t quite cut it for this bunch of funsters either!

A few glasses later, the party continued at The George Inn with some hilarious speeches, a mountain of cheese and a large dose of Karaoke! Here are a few of my favourites from this memorable day!


The Wedding of Luke & Egle @ Southdowns Manor

This wedding was so much fun! A scorching Hot day, a handful of friends and whole lot of culture!

Although we haven’t stayed in close contact, I’ve actually know Luke since Secondary School! We would regularly pass the time in Geography classes with our own version of the ‘Music Intros Game’ from Never Mind The Buzzcocks… Needless to say, our knowledge of classic rock and obscure pop punk was impeccable!

Skip forward about 15 years and I end up here… Being asked to shoot Luke & Egle’s big day! It was a perfect day in Sunny Sussex with beautiful sunshine at a beautiful venue.
Southdowns Manor ( is located in the heart of the south downs and provided some stunning photo opportunities.

I began the day capturing Egle and her closest friends getting ready, watching Luke’s best man deliver a super snazzy gift on Egle’s behalf and snapping away as their smiley guests arrived. We moved outside in to the beaming sunshine to watch the happy couple tie the knot, before raising a glass of bubbly on the lawn!

After some typically British games on the lawn and a few family shots, we moved indoors to the immaculately dressed reception room where Luke & Egle were greeted by Egle’s parents with some Lithuanian traditions. The wine was poured, the food was served and before long we arrived at the speeches. The first English translated speech I’ve experienced came from the Father of the bride, and he didn’t fail to hit all the right spots. (It’s bizarre how even if in Lithuanian, I could still sense the punch lines!) This was followed up by the groom and two semi-restrained best friends, before it really kicked off with the craziest game of ‘Mr & Mrs’.

As the sun set over the South Downs, I was fortunate enough to capture the newly weds in that beautiful golden light that us photographers adore, watch a sentimental Lithuanian tradition take place once again, and catch the cake being cut, before ending the evening with some beer-pong antics and plenty of shapes being thrown!

Here are a few of my favorite images from this spectacular day!
