Best of 2017

Another year gone by faster than you can say 'Large Chicken Legend with Spicy Mayo Meal and Coke, please' - literally just flown by! It's always a labour of love to sit down and compile my favourite shots of the year, and 2017 has been no different - it takes a looooooooooong time to look through all the images I've taken, but it's also really fun and rewarding; se[...]

One Shot Preview: Lola & Jon

One of the many (many!) things I love about my 'job', is the fact that it leads me to all different places of the world; places that I've never been to, and probably never would have got round to at all, if it wasn't for shooting weddings. Saturday was no exception, and the 1022 mile round-trip drive up to Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland was well, well worth it [...]

Amy & Aidan / Aynhoe Park

My penultimate wedding of 2016 was quite a different one, to say the least! Held at the unique Aynhoe Park, Amy and Aidan's wedding was just a blast from start to finish - so much energy, so much much fun! Taking inspiration from their love of festivals and Glastonbury, Amy and Aidan's wedding was a feast for the eyes - including Glitter Ball people, dwarfs [...]

One Shot Preview: Laura & Pete

My wedding season really kicked off last week, with two weddings in four days - the first of which was a truly beautiful day at Dorney Court in Windsor, for Laura and Pete. I'd photographed two of their friends' weddings before, so it was almost like meeting up with old friends again - so many familiar faces! It's always lovely to meet past brides and grooms again[...]

Named 1 of the ‘Top 5 Wedding Photojournalists in the UK 2017’

Wow, a real honour today, as I found out I'd been featured as one of the ‘Top 5 Wedding Photojournalists in the UK 2017’! I'm pinching myself here, as to be included on such a small list - just the top 5 in the whole of the UK! - is a little mind-boggling. For it to be specifcally wedding photojournalists is also massive for me, as that's what weddings are about: R[...]

Best of 2016

Another year gone by in an absolute flash; I know it's said everywhere, but it really is true: Time just goes quicker and quicker every year. Now I've got two small children that sense of time flying by just seems to have quadrupled, too. There really is nothing more valuable than time, is there? But, woah Al, enough of the sentimentality already! I don't think you're[...]
