CHATEAU NAUDOU WEDDING EDITORIAL SHOOT

This Chateau Naudou Wedding Editorial Shoot should have been the first of six. But the weather forecast for the scheduled weekend put paid to that, so we bumped it a few weeks into the future and it became the sixth. That wasn’t such a bad move because it meant that some of what had been…

Château du Bédat – Styled Shoot

Château du Bédat Styled Shoot with The Impeccable Pear Earlier this month, I had the chance to revisit this gorgeous venue for a styled ‘wedding’ shoot.

Château de Clauzade Editorial Wedding Shoot

Château de Clauzade – Editorial Wedding Shoot

Château de Clauzade (Editorial) Wedding Shoot Where to start with this one… I’ve visited a lot of places over a lot of years and as the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. To be honest, my first impression of this place was not that great…but that was not…

Manoir de Biraud Bas – Editorial Wedding Shoot

First of all, what is an ‘Editorial Wedding Shoot’? Well, despite appearances, it’s not a real wedding. In this instance, the couple have been married for around 20 years!

The single most overlooked aspect of most weddings is lighting. I’m not talking fairy lights or candles, – those are simply atmosphere providing ‘secondary’ lighting which isn’t really…

Wedding Photography in Europe

To date, I have captured weddings on 4 continents and 12 countries. England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Italy, Greece, USA, Mexico, China, Australia & New Zealand. These days however, I prefer to work closer to home and avoid the longer haul ‘destination’ weddings with international flights. I will also be honest and say I am…

2020 ‘Weddings’

I’m sure if you spoke to any wedding photographer (or anyone in the wedding industry), they would say the same thing, 2020 was sh!t. Personally speaking, what should have been 25 fabulous weddings throughout France ended as being 1 fabulous wedding in Brittany. There’s nothing to be said really for 2020, – it has been…
