Debbie and Dan got married at Cripps Stone Barn in September last year. Debbie got ready on the morning of the wedding at the beautiful Cats Abbey, just up the road from the venue.

A few shots from Robyn & Adam’s wedding back at the start of Summer at Spondon Church then Shottle Hall.

Bride’s take note, it’s always useful to have a friend with an Aston Martin for when the bridal car doesn’t show up!

Sami Tipi Wedding – Lisa & Mark

Lisa and Mark got married back in August and boy do they know how to plan a wedding! Lisa’s dad just happens to be a dab hand with a hammer and a saw which Lisa and Mark took full advantage of getting him to knock up a lemonade stand, a cheese cart, countless signs oh and a bar.

These guys were ace and I had an awesome day.

Villa la Selva Wedding, Tuscany – Kerry & Andy

Kerry and Andy are really good mates and so I was thrilled when they asked me to join them in Tuscany for their big fat Italian wedding. I’ll do a proper blog post on this in a few weeks time with a full write up but for now here’s just a taste. Let’s just say the weather was challenging.

Cripps Stone Barn Wedding, Cotswolds – Anna & Mark

I must admit that when I got married (nearly three years ago now) I became a little bit obsessed with the weather! Will it rain? Will it be sunny? What was it like last year? In fact lets look back over the last ten years of weather history because obviously that’ll help…..….yes I’m a dick!

You’ll be pleased to know that I scored lucky and got glorious sunshine.

The weather God’s weren’t quite as kind to Anna & Mark for their wedding down at Cripps Stone Barn in the Cotswolds. Did they let it spoil their day? Would they have had more fun if the sun was shining? Hell no!

The West Mill, Darley Abbey Mills, Derbyshire – Styled Shoot

This weekend sees the West Mill open its doors for its first ever wedding. I was lucky enough to be involved in a styled shoot with some kick ass suppliers there back in October, before the renovation work had begun. Derbyshire has been waiting for a venue like this for years and I am so excited to start shooting there, especially as it’s only a five minute walk from my front door. Hats go off to all the team who have worked tirelessly to sympathetically restore this gem of a building, high fives all round.
