Daisy and Charlie’s wedding took me to North Devon for the first time, an area which, in spite of living in Plymouth for 6 years, I hadn’t ever explored! What a pleasant surprise it was - all winding lanes and high hedgerows, and all this on what must have been the hottest weekend of the year.Read More
As you may know, as well as being a wedding photographer I also run Wild Glitter, an online store selling biodegradable glitter. With the summer sun shining, I thought it was the perfect time to collaborate with two lovely Cornwall yoga teachers, Yoga Jane and Sarah from Leela Yoga on some Cornwall yoga photography featuring biodegradable glitter by Wild Glitter.
Cornwall is a photographer's dream at this time of year - the sea is azure, the sun is shining and golden hour and sunset is beyond beautiful. This was a great opportunity to explore a new area for me, and to take a break from being a Cornwall wedding photographer for something a bit different.
Natural photography in Cornwall
If you’re a yoga teacher or creative looking for natural photography in Cornwall, then do get in touch - I always have time for headshot clients in between weddings and love nothing more than capturing people doing their thing, whether that’s yoga, surfboard shaping or serving people in your cafe!
Jane and Sarah are both rocking Wild Glitter's biodegradable glitter in Superchunky, Chunky and Fine, all of which are available in 7 different colours and can be custom labelled with your name and wedding date as biodegradable glitter wedding favours!

Ali and Joey had booked me to be their wedding photographer from Melbourne, Australia where they live, and as they were only arriving shortly before the wedding we didn’t get a chance to do an engagement shoot. Luckily I had shot Ali’s sister’s wedding at Walcot Hall last year, so we weren’t total strangers!Read More
I love this time of the year: maybe it’s the gentle easing back into the world of wedding photography and work after Christmas, maybe it’s the excitement of having a whole new year in front of me, a blank canvas. I think what I love most of all is how these first magical couple of weeks of the new year are always a time of reflection for me – on the weddings I shot, the places I traveled, the people I met and the friends I made. 2018 felt full to the brim with all of these things, so putting together this blog post has been an emotional and time-consuming ride!Read More
Sometimes you just get a feeling about a couple - you click instantly, and they feel like old friends rather than wedding photography clients. Kayleigh and James are one of these couples - from the moment we first spoke over Skype about photography for their upcoming wedding at Walcot Hall, I knew they were going to be F.U.N.Read More
This wedding really marked the beginning of the hot, hazy summer of 2018 - looking back on it to write this blog post feels like I’m looking through a golden lens. It was in the magical moment while everything was still green, before the fields all turned brown with the heat, and the atmosphere was so light and fun - all of which were perfect ingredients for a beautiful boho wedding.Read More
Jodie and James’ engagement shoot took me away from the hills and fields, and into the industrial landscape of Digbeth in Birmingham. It was such a lot of fun to change things up, and have a play with the stronger style of composition that the abandoned buildings and red brick architecture that Digbeth had to offer, not to mention the street art!Read More
I’d been dying to take a couple up to the epic crags of the Stiperstones and Devil’s Chair for ages, and with Harry and Rosie being a pretty adventurous couple who love to travel, it seemed like the perfect location for their Shropshire engagement shoot - an adventure on their doorstep.Read More
I arrived at Walcot Hall for Joanne and Rueben’s wedding to the news that Joanne had come down with food poisoning overnight - every bride’s worst nightmare. The amazing Lucie Anne (one of Walcot Hall’s wedding co-ordinator) had made a mad dash to the local doctor’s surgery with poor Jo early that morning and by the time I arrived things were definitely looking up, though the atmosphere was a bit more subdued than most weddings!Read More
I spend half my life ogling elopement photography from the Scottish Highlands on Instagram, so when Albion and Tania suggested that we do their engagement shoot near Glencoe while I was travelling around Scotland in my campervan, naturally I jumped at the chance.Read More
Fiona and Tom arrived in Shropshire from London 24 hours before their wedding to the news that the field they had booked for their rustic marquee reception was totally waterlogged. After several days of torrential downpours, the topsoil had completely washed away, and it was looking like they would have to find an alternative venue as the mudbath was so bad that the marquee was proving difficult to put up!Read More
Dani and Paul’s wedding at Whitsand Bay Fort was bathed in that special brand of early summer sunshine, the kind that reflects off tarmac and feels so fresh and bright it hurts. A summer breeze added to the fresh ocean feel as the couple said their vows in front of family and friends overlooking the glittering sea below.Read More
Part of the reason I chose to be a wedding photographer is my love of travel, so when Niamh and Brendan got in touch from Ireland to ask if I’d be interested in being their wedding photographer, it was an instant yes from me! In 2017 I shot two weddings in Ireland (you can see them here and here), and fell in love with the Emerald Isle, so to be asked back for a third time was a real treat.Read More
When Millie and Winston said the magic words “have you heard of The Grand Budapest Hotel?” and said that was the feel they were going for when it came to their wedding, I have to admit I did a little happy dance! Wes Anderson is one of my favourite filmmakers, and Wes Anderson inspired wedding photography has been on my bucket list for a while!Read More
Time for a little interlude in amidst the weddings. One of the massive perks of being a wedding photographer is the chance to set my own schedule in the quieter months, and as wedding season wasn’t quite in full swing we took the opportunity to continue where we left off last year.Read More
Any engagement shoot that involves getting a boat to get there is fine by me - unfortunately Dani and Paul were in their car so no fun nautical engagement photos for us, but luckily Mount Edgcumbe had plenty else to offer us.Read More
It's hard to believe that we're already over three months into 2018, and even harder to believe that the bookings are starting to roll in for 2019! I'm a bit late to the game with sharing my round up of 2017, but I've only got myself to blame as I swanned off to Bali and Indonesia to shoot a wedding and then travel for 6 weeks, making the scary decision to leave my laptop at home.Read More
One of the massive perks of being a wedding photographer is the seasonal nature of the work - it's one of the main reasons I went into wedding photography as I love to travel, and I knew that working all summer in places like Cornwall, Devon and Shropshire would mean that over the winter I could explore more far flung destinations (and hopefully book some destination weddings along the way).Read More
When Kirsty and Jesse's asked if I would consider flying to Perth to be their wedding photographer for what promised to be a beautiful backyard wedding in the Western Australian bush, let's just say I didn't have to mull it over for long.Read More
The middle wedding in a month of weddings at Walcot Hall for me, Monique and George had chosen the end of September for their Walcot Hall wedding. Taking a risk with the weather paid off, and we were greeted on the morning of their wedding with a hazy mist, which created some lovely diffused light for the photography!Read More
