This song has and always will be a perfect rock song. I’m an old rocker at heart and there doesn’t get much more classic than the first song that made most people sit up and take notice of one of the best bands to have ever graced the planet.
We Didn’t Start the Fire, Billy Joel Growing up as a child of the 80’s this was one of the classics.
A love for wedding shoes
My background in art has given me a huge appreciation for exquisite design. Thankfully for me weddings are full of well designed, custom made, beautiful things. In particular I always tend to pick up on shoes, or more to the point the brides shoes.
A brides shoes tends to be the little, cheeky, really personal part of their outfit for the day. The dress is as exquisite and princess like as…
Take two Kendo fighters, some soulful singing, a bit of dubstep, drum ‘n’ bass and some phat synthesizers, mix it all together and what do you get?
Fuji X-series cameras and remote flash
Admissions up front, I am mainly an available light shooter! For my wedding photography it just works for me and makes things quick, simple and more discrete. For nature and landscape there is already the biggest light source I could ask for so do not make use of any other lighting in these shots.
However, I have been shooting a number of portraits both personally and commercially lately which…
I had the genuine pleasure of photographing a civil partnership not long after I started as a wedding photographer.
The couple were adorable, happy, absolutely in love and looked at each other with the type of care and joy that any parent would wish their child to have their partner of choice have for them.
My big take away from the civil partnership was that it was a real shame they couldn’t be declared in the same manner that husband and wife are at the end of the ceremony. The couple themselves were not bothered, they simply wanted to show the world their love for each other.
With this in mind I say about time and am glad the option is finally there for anyone to marry whomever they wish.
Love is a beautiful thing which chooses you, you do not choose it and it is not reserved for certain people.
Marriage is a tradition which stretches back long before the church became involved and there is no reason under the sun that anyone should be prevented from marrying the person they love regardless of their gender, faith or background.In support of marrying who you want to regardless of gender, faith or background I had the genuine pleasure of photographing a civil partnership not long after I started as a wedding photographer.
Wake Up Wednesday 26th March 2014
I first heard this track at a wedding and with the volume up this was a huge wake up moment for the dance floor.
I Gotta Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas is just one of those pieces of music that feels timeless. I can see me as a 60 year old man still bouncing around to it.
It makes for a great push song when exercising and just can’t fail to put a smile on your face.
Turn it up loud, hit play and…
Horton Grange wedding venue
Horton Grange Country House Hotel is a beautiful venue hidden in the Northumberland countryside. Quiet, elegant, light and luxurious, the hotel is a perfect wedding venue which can host your entire wedding day, from ceremony through to reception and evening events.
I have photographed two weddings in the venue and both have been wonderful, happy events which have provided me with some of my…
