Christmas Wedding

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As we move into Spring I would like to take you back to last winter and in particular Christmas time.

After a heavy snow fall on Boxing Day evening, it was with some trepidation that I awoke on the morning after, as this was the day of Sarah and Kevin’s wedding.

Snow levels on the ground weren’t too bad and so arrived at Sarah’s house for the pre wedding preparations in good time. After a very relaxed morning taking photos of Sarah and her daughter Naomi, it was onto the venue for the service which took place at Lichfield Registry Office.

It was here the photos of Kevin and Aaron (Best Man) were taken before the arrival of Sarah and Naomi. The service itself takes place in a beautiful room, overlooking a picturesque scene. Although it was bitterly cold for the outdoor group and couple shots, everyone was enjoying themselves with plenty of humour flying between the couple, family and guests, and this comes through in the pictures.

As an aside and as it was mid-Winter, as part of my preparations I visited the venue the week before (as I do for all weddings I shoot) to find the best locations for the photos and to gauge what the light will be like at the time of the wedding, particularly as the light fades fast at this time of the year.

And so onto Sarah & Kevin’s reception which took place at Burntwood Rugby Club. The joy and humour continued long into the night, and it’s easy to see how much this couple love each other. ‘Slash’ made a guest appearance during the couple’s first dance, and the cake cutting shot was one with a difference as you can see from the picture.

Overall it was a fantastic day, and I was proud and honoured to be asked to photograph Sarah and Kevin’s ‘big day’.

Please feel free to have a look at the Wedding ( section to view some images from the day.

Website Support

By | Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Hi everyone, I hope you’re enjoying the website.

When I decided to set up a website for my photography, I never realised the amount of work required to get it up and running. The site itself would not have been possible without the support of a number of people.

Last Summer I attended a ‘Big Shoot Experience’ hosted by Damian McGillicuddy ( This was a fantastic experience in itself where I learnt a lot of skills that I try to implement into my photography every time I shoot.

I didn’t know it at the time but there was also another benefit of attending this event. I came into contact with Eifion Williams and Lee Iggulden who run Welshot Imaging. I have since come to appreciate how fortunate I was to come across these people.

Through the power of facebook I made contact with Lee and after a couple of conversations I was convinced that Welshot ( could help me develop (excuse the pun) my photography to another level. Welshot is a group that provides….”academy evenings, photography workshops, experience days, software courses as well as other events in a friendly and affordable way….”. They are also a great networking group as well as offering business advice. Through Lee she advised that I need a Logo and a website in addition to my facebook page.

Consequently I contacted Nick Marsh of Nick Marsh Design (, who was fantastic and very professional in helping to come with ideas for my logo that appears on my website, facebook page and my administration paperwork. I would recommend Nick to anyone that requires online and offline designs.

Back to Welshot and I was put into contact with James Farley (, who is a photographer and a member of Welshot, as well as Website designer. After much hard work James designed the Website that you’re now looking at. Once again I would recommend James if you’re after a Website of your own.

So, as you can see there is a lot of effort and support that has gone into this site, and for that I would like to say….Thank you
