After 18 years photographing the most glorious weddings for the most beautiful of couples I’m excited to say I’m starting something new. I have loved being a part of so many of life’s magical moments for you and honestly I really could have gone on forever. But we live long lives and have multiple passions. It’s time for me to pursue my next. Believe me, it’s hard work but totally worth it.

I will always be a photographer, whatever I get up to. And I DO like champagne and wedding cake. But for the time being I won’t be taking any more bookings from 2022.

Thank you to all who have made us a small part of your big story. Look me up, keep in touch!

Yours in f2.8, 1/125th and ISO1600... Richard

Kicking the leaves with Andy & Beth at Cliveden House

I noticed something interesting. The couples that choose us for their weddings tend to be a lot like us in some way or another. So instead of focussing our advertising and marketing on looking super-flash, wealthy, or famous we’ve always preferred to just be ourselves. Exactly as you’ll find us when we meet, and on the wedding day itself.

It means we don’t usually get to boast about having our weddings appear in OK magazine, fly to Italy just for an engagement shoot or hire a lambourghini for the photos. (I mean you could always just use your own lambourghini even though it’s last year’s model.) But it does mean we get to make a genuine connection, and lots of great friends that we love to keep in touch with.

Three location skype calls can be tricky, but when I talked to Andrew and Beth last year about their wedding plans we had a great chat, laughed easily and I felt sure we’d be friends. We met up in November to take a look at their awesome wedding venue, kick the fallen leaves and take some engagement photos around Cliveden House. It was fun to learn more about them and find out just how much we had in common as we went for a good long walk. So long in fact, we didn’t realise the place was closing just as we finished.

So here are a few photos from our shoot. I can’t wait for their big day this spring!
