Wedding Portfolio Gallery

All because two people fell in love (sign on cake table)

To get to know me a bit better, I decided to pick a set of photos which are a good representation of my style and the sort of photographs I take. Every wedding is different – and so the photos are also different. Some common themes reappear – but ultimately it’s what happens on the day which dictates what photos I take. However, if you like more than 2 or 3 photos here – then you’ll probably like the ones I would take for you. This gallery is roughly in chronological order of the wedding day – from the bridal preparation in the morning to the dancing at the reception. There are about 100 photos here – so it may take a few seconds to load completely – I hope you agree that it’s worth the short delay !

For some of the images – I’ve added a note – which helps to put things in context. Enjoy, and do comment if you would like to.
