The beginning of each new season brings with it a certain sense of apprehension, a desire to start well and get into the groove. So I was really fortunate and delighted to have had S & B's marriage celebration to shoot in May, at the wonderful historic Abbey of Saint Florent le Vieil and the nearby Chateau de Vair, halfway between Nantes and Angers.
A year ago this last weekend I had the privilege of photographing Jenna & Shelley's wedding in the majestic Château de Massillan, set in the beautiful Provencal vineyard countryside, between Orange and Bollène.
Another wonderful wedding season, blessed with good weather and covering everything from the close intimate family affair with just two dozen people, to the full scale 500-strong celebration.
2015 took me once again across the four corners of France travelling to Burgundy, Provence, Brittany, Dordogne and Aquitaine, from the splendour of historic castles to the intimacy of family homes.
My favourite picture from last year was taken at a Dutch-Romanian wedding held in a family–owned Chateau in the Loire Valley.
The new wedding season got off to a great start on May 3rd with the wedding of Sandra and Alexis in the beautiful coastal resort of Saint Brevin les Pins.
A year ago today I had the pleasure of photographing Jessica and Wesley’s wedding at Le Bourdil Blanc near Bergerac in the Dordogne. Despite the fact that it rained most of the day, it was really one of the highlights of my wedding season
When you’ve been shooting weddings over a certain number of years, it can often be those where everything doesn’t quite go accordingly to plan, that most easily spring to mind.

A very balanced mix of English and French speaking weddings last year, concentrated around the regions of Brittany, Loire Valley and the Dordogne
I first met Sybil Rondeau, around 7 years ago. She had not long previously packed in her medical related job, deciding to make a vocation out of her passion for photography, in particular, for wedding photography.
A touch of hipster, a dose of vintage, a splash of rustic charm and a varnish of contemporary elegance. Jo & Fraser's wedding last summer at the beautiful venue of Saint Victor Grand'Maison
With well over a decade’s experience in wedding photography, the old cliché still holds true, that no two celebrations are ever alike. It’s really the quality of the people you meet that make for the quality of the pictures in terms of their authenticity and emotional force.
One of the highlights of the season so far has definitely been Helen and Dan’s wedding at la Madone in the beautiful Provencal hilltop village of Roussillon, famous for its ochre sands
It would seem that in wedding photography at least, colour is the new black & white. Let me explain…..
Wedding photographers find their inspiration from many sources, often from associated branches of the profession, whether it be documentary, fashion or portraiture.
It’s been another exciting and eventful year of shooting weddings across the four corners of France, from the bay of Saint Malo in Brittany, down to the Tropicana beach club in Rayol Canadel, via the Dordogne, the Luberon and many other picturesque locations in between.
As an English photographer, with over 10 years’ experience of living and working in France, I regularly cover English-speaking or dual-nationality weddings on this side of the Channel
