It’s not hard to provide stunning wedding photography when you are blessed with a beautiful bride. Even easier when she is dressed in one of the most incredible wedding dresses I’ve ever seen. Bearing in mind I’ve been a leading wedding photographer in the UK for nearly 20 years, I’ve seen quite a few! The dress was made by the insanely talented Fiona Clare Couture.
Whilst I take a mixture of colour and black & white photos of the whole day, I generally prefer black and white for the ‘classic’ portraits such as this. I find colour too distracting. You end up studying the colours of the flowers, or wallpaper etc. Black and white wedding portrait photography is timeless, classic and captures the mood of the day so much more effectively. Where possible, I also love to work with natural light which I find much softer. It also enables me to work really fast, which is one of the key skills for a wedding photographer.
I took this portrait just before leaving for Sherborne Abbey. We only had a few minutes to spare. But long enough to lay out her lace coat in a perfect circle. I love how the tiara mirrors this circle.

Whilst I’m a Dorset based portrait and wedding photographer, I still get to travel all round the UK to capture stunning wedding photographs. This images is from a family with four daughters near Peterborough in Hertfordshire. Sadly I didn’t know them when the eldest was married, but I went on to photograph the next three daughters. Each of whom were as stunning and lovely as each other. It’s a true privilege to photograph to photograph such an intimate and important day in someone’s life. And even more special to return to the same wonderful family three times. I look forward to photographing all their delightful children in due course!
This image is of their 3rd daughter’s wedding. It is is one of my favourite angles to capture at a wedding. I love the way light streams through the flowers on the arch providing a paradisiacal garden to frame the bride and groom. Whilst this photo worked well in colour too, I prefer black and white portraits of the bride and groom. They capture the mood, intimacy and romance of the day so much better than colour. I hope you like this as much as I do.

I took this photo during one the speeches at a Dorset wedding. It’s one of my favourite parts of the wedding day. They are charged with so much emotion. From pride, nostalgia, excitement and love, to sadness for those that could not be there, & the the inevitable highly entertaining stories which has everyone in stitches. They make for wonderful photos that capture the spirit of the day. They are also the perfect time to take lovely portraits of family and guests, too busy listening to the speeches to notice the camera. This bestman’s speech was one of the funniest I’ve ever heard. And I have heard a lot! The reactions of the bride & groom and the father of the bride say it all.
It was the wedding closest to home, near Sherborne in Dorset, I have ever photographed. If our little rowing boat had less holes in it, still had an oar, and the river more water, I could have rowed up stream to their house in 5 minutes. Instead it was a 2 minute drive and I arrived at both destinations dry! The wedding service took place in Sherborne Abbey. with a reception in a lovely country house with stunning gardens. You might find one or two other photographs from their wedding in my wedding gallery.
