Speaking at WPPI in Las Vegas!

I'm so honoured and thrilled to have been asked to be a speaker at WPPI in Las Vegas! WPPI is the largest wedding photography conference in the world, with about 13,000 photographers heading to Vegas each year from all over the globe. This year, Rangefinder are running a three-day workshop there, called 'Rise & Shine', where some past 30 Rising Stars are going [...]

One Shot Preview: Aimie & Colin / Hedingham Castle, Essex

It was my first wedding of 2019 at the weekend, and what a cracker it was! Here's a little one-shot preview: Aimie & Colin, and my first time as a Hedingham Castle wedding photographer. What a venue! A 12th Century Norman Keep, they had exclusive use of it over three different floors, and their day was packed with falconry, sing-a-longs, musician friends, and even[...]

Emma & Jake / Verbier, Switzerland

"Alan thanks so much for all your amazing photos. They made an epic weekend even more epic! Your photos are truly awesome and ensure that we will have lots of fantastic memories." Emma & Jake. Where do I begin to describe this wedding? Honestly, I count myself incredibly lucky to be doing what I love for a living; to be able to do it whilst visiting amazing, be[...]

Sam & Rhys / Chateau Soulac, France

It's always an honour to be asked to photograph someone's wedding, and I always say that the venue matters not - it's all about the people, the emotion, the energy, the love that we, as wedding photographers, are privileged to witness and capture. Saying that, however, it's a nice little bonus of the 'job' when you're asked to capture a wedding overseas, and when Sam [...]

Marie & Ben / Wadebridge, Cornwall

This was such a beautiful day in Cornwall last year; Marie and Ben really lucked out on the weather front! It was also the day England won their World Cup Quarter-Final against Sweden, so it seemed their luck extended a long way too...! What to say about this day? Well, it was just lush, from start to finish. A truly relaxed day - as all the best weddings are, in my o[...]

Cara & Jack / North Cadbury Court, Somerset

Cara & Jack's North Cadbury Court wedding photography was *such* a blast! These two (and their friends and family) really knew how to party; they wanted their day to be totally relaxed (which it was) and just one long joy-fest (which, again, it really was!). Honestly, check out some of their photos below, I think over 90% of them contain laughter...! It was my [...]

Kelly & James / Polhawn Fort, Cornwall

Two weddings blogged in a week...that has to be some kind of personal record! Today we're going back to May this year; a beautiful sunny day at Polhawn Fort, Cornwall, for the very lovely Kelly and James. The week before, I had been in France (you can see some images from my time as a Chateau Soulac wedding photographer here) and it had rained all day...and here, b[...]

Erin & Martin / Doxford Farm, Northumberland

One of the best things about my 'job' is the sheer diversity - every wedding is totally different; every moment is different, even if I'm shooting a the same venue. Erin & Martin's Doxford Farm wedding photography in Northumberland was a great example of this, as it was the first time I'd captured a Wiccan wedding; loved it! There was *so* much emotion for me t[...]

Nicolette & Karl / Lusty Glaze, Cornwall

Nicolette and Karl's Lusty Glaze wedding photography was all about ENERGY! Which is ironic, given the fact that Nicolette broke her ankle just a couple of days before the big day...this, ladies and gentleman, is the definition of the 'I'm not going to let anything ruin my wedding day' wedding! Lusty Glaze beach in Newquay, Cornwall, really is one of the most unique[...]

Hayley & Josh / Hengrave Hall, Suffolk

2019 is here, and with a new year comes new blogs! Today I'm looking back at Hayley & Josh's Hengrave Hall wedding photography in Suffolk; a venue I've had the pleasure of shooting at a few times, now, and one I'll be heading back to this year, too. What was my overriding impression of Hayley & Josh's wedding? One of complete and utter joy - I know it may s[...]

Best of 2018

2018...what a year, and how quickly it's flown by! Me and my cameras have been all over this year, with weddings in Montenegro, England, France, Wales, and a little 1500 mile round-trip drive up to Dornoch in Scotland! Each and every one has been unique; each and every one has been an absolute pleasure - I still pinch myself that I do this 'job' as a living; the fa[...]

Chloe & Luke / Priston Mill, Bath

It's nearly the end of my wedding season, which can mean only one thing....blogging season has arrived! Ha ;) But, seriously, I really want to do a concerted effort to feature more of the weddings that I'm amazingly lucky to capture - I spend so much of the year shooting and editing, that by the time it comes to Winter, I naturally want to take a little step back and [...]
