    I am very excited to be sharing with you the wedding of Terry & Theresa in the Seychelles. This certainly was a wedding to remember and by far the most remote and beautiful places Ian has ever photographed a wedding.  Denis Island, a private Island off the Seychelles was the location for this most intimate wedding.  Ian photgraphed Terry and Theresa’s engagement shoot back in March which resulted in them booking him for their destination wedding. So in preparation for this once in a lifetime opportunity Ian felt he should upgrade his camera as well as his summer wardrobe! The perfect excuse.  Packing was interesting as all his camera equipment and lighting needed to be safe but weighs quite a bit and he...

    Wedding at Shenley Cricket Centre Gemma and Ben’s wedding at Shenley Cricket Centre may have been a little wet but they certainly didn’t let that stop them having a fantastic day.  Their friends and family really made their day come alive, making it a pleasure to be a part of.  They truly did create a wonderful, happy and fun atmosphere for us to capture.  I started capturing Gemma where she was getting ready at her parents house and Ian met up with Ben and the boys. Having the two of us means that the groom doesn’t miss out!

    Lisa and Chris tied the knot at the end of November in Rickmansworth followed by a reception at Hunton Park.  As you can see from the highlights below, they had a fantstic day and didn’t stop smiling.  The weather was kind enough not to rain and I think excitement kept Lisa warm when we took a few photographs in the grounds before returning them to the warm and their guests who were being entertained by a string quartet and a caricturist. There was a warm Christmassy feel to the marquee decorated in their rich purple colour scheme with flowers, Christmas trees and the most delicious smelling tower of chocolate desserts which had a wedding cake teir on the top.

Rebecca got ready at Sopwell house in the mews which gave me the opportunity to capture some shots of the family and bridesmaids outside before leaving for the Abbey.  After an eventful journey to the Abbey Rebecca arrived on time but in a VW Golf!  Not quite to plan but her relaxed and happy personality ensured that this didn’t hinder her enjoyment of the day and she emerged beeming and looking sensational.
