Wonderful dinnner at Varramista, Tuscany

Dressed for the part, although it can be quite tricky being a working photographer in full evening dress!

The anti-pasta was wild boar parcels

Another special weekend in

The pudding was a semi-fredo – delicious – and I’m not usually a pudding sort of person

Italy photographed mostly for private viewing. Here are some photos of the black tie dinner on the Saturday night. There’s nothing quite like the way that the Italians lay up tables for formal meals.

Another hand-made Queensberry Album finds its home

Just delivered a beautiful hand-made Queensberry to James and Kitty.
The flexibility and bespoke nature of this stunning product means that invitations, orders of service (see left) and menus, can all be incorporated into the design.
The Order of Service sits next to a photo of the church and the menu next to mouthwatering photographs of the food.
The invitation is placed next to a photo of the gorgeous venue which I went to early that morning so I could photograph it in the best light.
The quality of the album is amazing – a real heirloom. The cover is in smooth Burgandy leather with a photo motif.

Another beautiful Queensberry album


A small intimate wedding on one of the hottest summer’s day imaginable. Rhinefield House in the heart of the New Forest was the spectacular setting for the moving ceremony and the sumptuous wedding breakfast. With a Sage cover, this Queensberry Album will have ivory mats, and the photographs will be mounted on grey pages which will give a soft border to each one.

And also in my camera bag…..

It was INCREDIBLY hot on Saturday, and in south London – Dulwich to be precise – the heat was on and over 32 degrees by the time the suited and booted men of the bridal party had begun to gather at the church. The Best Man was mopping his brow almost as much as the nervous Bridegroom!

The humidity inside the chapel was very high and the beautiful orders of service were put to good use as fans by the guests.

It was not surprising to find that my camera bag was raided for a number of crucial items as the day wore on: water for the bride and groom after the ceremony, pain-killers (for dehydration headaches), sun tan cream, and last but not least plasters to cushion hot and swollen bruised feet!

The wedding was wonderful – an eclectic mix of Japanese, Scottish and English with guests from around the world converging on Dulwich College for the celebrations. The heat of the day turned into a balmy evening with a cool breeze and guests taking a break from dancing spilled out into the floodlit College grounds.

Latest Publicity – Wedding Venues & Services

Tilly and Christian’s perfect summer tea party is featured in the latest edition of Wedding Venues and Services. Tilly is a professional Lady Golfer, so not surprisingly the tables had a golfing theme!


The wedding took place at the exclusive Buckinghamshire venue of Poundon House – in the open air. Tilly planned her wedding in only eight weeks, although I was aware of the date for a little longer, as I had photographed Christian’s sister’s wedding four years previously at Woburn!
Christian and Tilly can be seen further down in my posts under ‘Capturing Perfect Moments’. That image not only headlines the magazine article, but will feature on the front cover of their album – currently in the final stages of production.
