I’m very fortunate to spend a lot of time with beautiful people on their Big Day. Kaley and Dennis were not only beautiful people to photograph today but they were so genuine, grateful, decent and supreme examples that having good parents creates good parents. The whole day was bliss. There was no panic and no fuss, it was ‘simply’ 2 people clearly madly in love coming together to do what couldn’t be more natural ! There was just smile after smile, the odd tear, friends giving a million hugs, parents looking on (justifiably) with pride and a real sense that their love is a very modern day love story with a classic feel too. A sign of just how decent people they are came when Kaley made a point of standing up during the speeches to make ONE thank you, to Jo Newell. She then asked Jo to come down and presented her with a bunch of flowers for all the care and listening to them so that on the day the wedding was everything Kaley had perhaps dreamed of as a little girl. Jo looked after every aspect of the day to ensure it ran smoother than silk could ever hope to be ! Andy made sure everyone (including Daniel the toastmaster and I) received their unbelievably delicious meals on time and perfectly cooked. Its a joy to watch such a finely tuned ‘machine’ doing its thing but rather than it feel like a computer controlled technical supercar it felt more like a purring V8 !!! All in all, Kaley and Dennis and Essendon Country Club made sure my count of fabulous 2015 weddings had another addition !
Sunday was the day after my amazing day at Hatfield House and I was looking forward to an equally fabulous day – and I certainly got just that ! I arrived to photograph Vaso getting ready for her Big Day and was immediately hit with a wave of Greek hospitality, food being ‘forced’ into me (me being the gent I am I obviously obliged with NO fuss !) and a house full of people who brought a house full of LOVE with them ! Andy arrived with his violin and the traditional ceremonies began. The music and singing was captivating and hypnotic. Various family members came to take part in a variety of different customary rituals. The thing I loved was the feeling that as the bride’s mother came to take part she knew exactly what to do because she remembered her own wedding day and Vaso will perhaps find herself in the same position one day too. There was a real feeling that the wedding was a moment in Greek history, the next generation getting married. The Ceremony took part at St. Mary’s Cathedral and the traditional feelings continued. Later on traditional Greek music provided by Millennium made sure that if people WERE sat down it was because they’d either danced too hard or fell over in the process ! The final traditional aspect of the day I felt was that each and every person was there because they loved Vaso and Paul and as in generations gone by, they knew how to party !

We were nominated and voted for by our lovely clients and we are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this prestigious title in The 2013 Wedding Industry Awards!Here is what our clients had to say:
Why They Booked
“We loved his sample albums, each couple he captures looks so happy and confident. Many other albums we looked through [elsewhere] had couples looking uncomfortable in shots. We wanted to avoid this so it was vital to find someone we were both completely satisfied with. Patrick was very friendly and made us feel at ease from our first meeting. The passion he has for his work is obvious and we trusted he would provide us with the best service on our wedding day, and we are thrilled with our wedding album! A work of art!”
“After meeting he was friendly, kind, caring and had fab photo skills. He’s become a good friend.”
“We liked his approach – someone who would take amazing photographs without being intrusive on the day. He really took his time to discuss options and details and even stayed on longer into the evening free of charge.. Jacky and Patrick have really gone that extra mile to fulfill our dream album”
“Everything about him, great guy with great skills”
“We loved Patrick’s confidence and thought that on the day he could bring order to our guests so we could get the photos we wanted. And Patrick did just that!”
“We just felt comfortable with him from day one and that’s what you want with photos, as posing is not a natural thing for me & my husband, but Patrick made it easy!”
“Recommended by a friend”
“Professional, easy to get along with, we felt comfortable with him, and he listened and understood us.”
“We were impressed by the quality of his sample albums and we had an initial meeting, where he was very helpful in giving recommendations for photos and generally how the day would go.”“A family friend recommendation”“After meeting Patrick we liked the way in which he planned to format the photography – ensuring guests weren’t hanging round whilst the photos were being taken. Some guests did comment on the fact they didn’t realise photos had been taken and it wasn’t a long, drawn out process that it can be at weddings!”“Because he is truly the best in the business around Hertfordshire”“Patrick was recommended to us by two separate people who were very impressed with the level of service he gives and the care and attention he shows.”
|“Patrick could not have been more enthusiastic, professional and charming. His photographs were outstanding and he captured the mood of our wedding perfectly.”“Fantastic guy, with great skills who became a part of our wedding. It has been a pleasure meeting up with Patrick & discussing all our needs, we got to know him as a person as well as a great photographer. He took everything about us in to consideration & the photos are perfect. Highly recommended”“Patrick was approachable & professional. Our guests also loved that he was friendly and patient. We have just seen our photos and they are simply stunning! Patrick has captured everything we wished for and more…the photos tell our wonderful story of our day & we will treasure the album.”“Patrick was fantastic, he’s really professional well presented, reliable and a superb guy.”“Patrick really helped to make our day special. Can’t recommend his services enough! Friendly and unobtrusive service. Pics look awesome too 🙂”“An outstanding gentleman with great creative ambitions and views. The best photographer I/we have ever used, and will always recommend and use Patrick for future events in our lives .”“Patrick was excellent at organising the photos and really interacted well with our guests. Very nice approach and was very well presented.”
“Patrick was fantastic from the first meeting we had with him. He listened to how we wanted our photos to be and on the day with no more direction, pulled everything together for us with the outcome off the most beautiful album, He is such a lovely friendly guy and he will be recommended by us always”
“Patrick arrived early and even when the early evening was running a bit slow, he even offered to go home for an hour or two and come back later when there were more guests and entertainment, without charging us any extra.”
“Patrick was fantastic. We got to know him really well before our big day so he just fitted in like he was one of the guests. He knew our venue inside and out and knew exactly where to take us for that perfect shot! Amazing!”
“As soon as we met Patrick we wanted him to be our photographer! We had already booked another, but cancelled them so that we could have him instead. He was so polite and professional, and understood that I wanted my photos to be quick and fuss free so that we could enjoy our day with our guests.”
“Patrick’s style of photography was very non-intrusive yet he managed to capture some wonderful memories and moments of our day. His catch phrase “Superbo” became a talking point for some of our guests, so he managed to make an impression!”
“Patrick is absolutely faultless. He was so friendly and professional from the very beginning. We would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a beautiful photo album to look back on.”
