So long 2018…Well hello 2019!

I admit I am slightly late this year with this one… At the start of each new year, I post an end of year summary and what I am looking forward to in 2019. I am a bit late this year (posting in mid March) because I have been a bit busy until now. First…

Marie & Danny’s Chateau la Gauterie Wedding

    When you choose to get married in South West France, the one thing you expect is sunshine. At least if you choose to get married May-Sep. OK, May was a bit ‘off’ this year, but since early June, it’s been mostly wall to wall sunshine with just the occasional dramatic storm. And so…

Minnie & Nick – The Village Wedding

    Minnie & Nick – The Village Wedding at Castelnau des Fieumarcon. ‘The Wedding Village’ as it is known is just that, an entire village. Just for you! It currently sleeps around 80 in something like 15 hours and has no other residents other than the custodians who also run the weddings that take…

CHÂTEAU DU FRÉCHOU

  CHÂTEAU DU FRÉCHOU Hidden Gem. It’s a cliche phrase perhaps but if ever that title could be applied to somewhere, it’s this place. I was recently asked to start a project of photographing the place in regard to future weddings. There have been one or two small/minor affairs but nothing ‘serious’. Yet. But now…

Amy & Andy’s Dordogne Chateau Wedding

    Amy & Andy’s Dordogne chateau wedding took place at the Chateau Charmant in association with Marry Me in France. An outdoor wedding had been planned, both ceremony & meal, but the weather gods sadly refused that request. However, post-ceremony, it stayed dry and gradually improved throughout the rest of the day meaning the…

Secret Garden Wedding with Marry Me in France

    My second wedding of the year was another small/intimate wedding though this time even smaller than last weeks 35 person wedding with just 16 in total. Sophie & Will’s Secret Garden wedding took place at this idyllic venue in Dordogne, planned & managed to perfection by Sue Christie at Marry Me in France.…

Barn Wedding France – Angie & Jarrod

    Well bonjour 2018! What a way to start the 2018 wedding season with this absolute gem of a wedding. I wasn’t sure quite what to expect with Angie & Jarrod’s wedding as I wasn’t even supposed to be photographing it, but the photographer originally booked, could no longer make the date. Their loss…

Featured Wedding – Livvy & Alex

I shoot 25 weddings a year. That’s my year’s work. Doesn’t sound much does it? But every wedding is a working week, so that’s 25 weeks work. Then because I also film approximately 50% of all the weddings I attend, that’s another 12-13 weeks work. All told, it’s 37-38 weeks work a year. Sounds alright…

Featured Wedding – Steff & Charlie

Could have eaten outdoors. Wanted to eat outdoors. The weather forecast said it would be unwise. It was late September in South West France. It should have been OK, but on this particular day, it wasn’t. If I could have changed just one thing about Steff & Charlie’s wedding day, it would have been the…

Featured Wedding – Anouska & Tom

I met Anouska & Tom twice prior to their wedding day. That’s quite rare. I recommend and normally meet all my clients at least once, but with Anouska & Tom, it was twice. The first time was because it was convenient. I needed to pop up to the venue which is local (to me) to…
