Book your 2022/2023 wedding!

Firstly, congratulations on deciding to make your love OFFICIAL!

All professional wedding photographers have their unique own style and approach to wedding photography. For me, I’ve always captured weddings in a natural and fun way with the odd twist! If you and your fabulous guests are happy and relaxed, the photographs will reflect this.

For the most part, I shoot in a documentary or reportage fashion and in this way I get to capture very real moments. It’s very often those fleeting moments captured, the photographs that you didn’t know were being taken, are the ones that mean the most.

When it comes to the romantic side of things or the formal group shots, I still keep things natural and the group shots take no longer than 10 minutes. Your guests will be there because they love you and want to spend quality time with you, reminisce, laugh and chat on what’ll be a never-to-be-forgotten time in your life and the more time there is for this, the better. The ‘couples’ shots are captured in a way that feels like we’re going for a relaxed wander and spontaneously find the perfect spots to take some gorgeous photographs of you both. Again, keeping things natural brings out the best in everyone and I never ask anyone to smile. The whole process should be done in a way that you will be anyway!

After your wedding you are invited back to the studio to view your images and chose the ones you would like in your album. Again the kettle is always on and I never tire of seeing the look on couples faces as they re-live their wedding day.

All weddings are unique and our beautiful hand-made designed albums are created in such a way that they always do a couple’s day justice.

We are a husband and wife team – I love to capture the day (and chat!) and Jacky equally loves going to work on creating the perfect bespoke album with the pictures of your choice. We make that every album reflect the couples day perfectly and it is only then your album goes to print by THE UK’s award-winning leading lab who we’ve built a great working relationship with for over 15 years. Each step of the way needs to be taken with care but also with a smile and it’s for that reason I feel that we get so many lovely comments and messages from our couples – it’s good for the soul !

Whether or not you have set a date for YOUR Big Day, you are very welcome to come and visit our photography studio in Hertford (there’s ample free parking), have a browse through our extensive selection of real life wedding albums and have a cuppa! Ours are complete wedding albums from many of the stunning local wedding venues including Fanhams Hall Hotel, Hanbury Manor Hotel and Country Club, St Michael’s Manor, Brocket Hall, Essendon Golf Club, to name just a few.

I’m also a destination wedding photographer and have been fortunate enough to capture weddings in Italy, France and Ireland – as long as there’s a couple in love, along with their amazing friends and family I’m there!

If couples do come for a chat I never ask them if they’d like to chose me to capture their Special Day. It’s a decision that should be given consideration as your wedding photographer will play a very personal and inclusive part of your day. so they should be someone you’d like to invite to your wedding anyway !

If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me and I’ll be of whatever help I can be.

Claire and Antony

Coltsfoot Retreat, September 2019

Clare and Antony’s big day had it all… A beautiful setting, fabulous guests, the was sun shining and two people clearly in love ! Being nestled in the countryside creates a fabulous feeling of serenity and calm… that was until the band turned up and it turned into something COMPLETELY different ! It was as if we rounded the night off at a festival ! That’s maybe what I love about capturing weddings most? The fact that they are all different and beautiful in their own way and I get to freeze those moments forever !

Hannah and David

Gosfield Hall, February 2020

Hannah and David’s wedding was a complete JOY from start to finish but what I loved most was the natural way they were around each other, which showed in the photographs. They were up for anything and to hear their lovely words afterwards made it all the sweeter !!

We just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank you again for seeing us last night! It was such a joy seeing all the pictures you have captured and helping us build our album! They are all great – but there are a few pictures in there that are just another level, far beyond anything we every thought we would have, so thank you very much!

Ami and Phil’s Dream Wedding at Maidens Barn

What an amazing summer this has turned out to be, and it’s STILL GOING ! Ami and Phil’s wedding was a highlight ! All day long they were relaxed, enjoying the ‘moment’ and  it was a fabulous way to celebrate my Saint’s namesake day ! I always love to be somewhere fabulous on St Patrick’s Day and this year, Ami and Phil provided a most excellent setting ! There was a strong family feel to the day and it was clear that both sides of the family were close and it was genuinely heartwarming. I look forward to many more days like these and ‘freezing’ the moment for generations to come.

“Working with Pat and Jacky has been a pleasure throughout – from the initial meeting, photography on the day, through to production of the final album. Seeing it all finished, the image quality, print finish and album quality is amazing! Our parents are also very pleased and impressed with their smaller albums. Everyone commented on the day how relaxed you made them feel, and also how well organised and efficient you were with all the group shots and it’s great seeing it all finished. The whole day was captured perfectly from start to finish. Thank you very much.” Phil & Ami

“What a professional, loved the photos from my big day, highly recommend..” Ryan Coogan

 

The Worshipful Company of Engineers Awards Livery Dinner with HRH The Princess Royal

What a beautiful evening the 18th July was. There’s always something very special about London in my humble opinion. It always feels alive ! It certainly felt special on the 18th and I was honoured to spend time with the positive people of City Livery and also of course, HRH The Princess Royal. I found her to be a most charming individual and she truly engaged with all the recipients of awards and their extended teams. It was a genuine pleasure to watch her and those around her. There was plenty of laughter and in-depth chats and she had time for everyone.
