Fancy dress wedding photographer

January 16th, 2013

I love fancy dress. Sometimes I dress up as a wizard to photograph weddings. OK, not often but that was a photo taken at a my favourite festival where I was Bestival wedding photographer for the Inflatable Church capturing 48 weddings in 72 hours.

Fancy dress wedding photographer Isle of WightI love fancy dress. Sometimes I dress up as a wizard to photograph weddings.

OK, not often but that was a photo taken at a my favourite festival where I was Bestival wedding photographer for the Inflatable Church capturing 48 weddings in 72 hours.

Whilst sorting through our slowly growing collection of fancy dress at home I was thinking “How cool would that be to photograph a real wedding in fancy dress?!”

So I’m on a mission now. If you’re having a unique wedding that’s a little bit out of the ordinary, or maybe you’re doing a fancy dress theme then get in touch as I would LOVE to hear all about your plans.

Best of 2011 review

January 8th, 2012

It seems crazy that 2011 has been and gone, and we’re already well on our way into the New Year. As you can probably tell by the lateness of my post (and distinct lack of blogging), 2011 has flown by for me. So I’ve decided to take a moment to sit down, take it all […]

 

It seems crazy that 2011 has been and gone, and we’re already well on our way into the New Year. As you can probably tell by the lateness of my post (and distinct lack of blogging), 2011 has flown by for me. So I’ve decided to take a moment to sit down, take it all in and share a few words and photos with you.

I had a fantastic year capturing beautiful weddings in picturesque gardens, grand country houses and some exclusive venues. Two of my personal highlights included a whole weekend of festival weddings and photographing a very happy pair of newly-weds dancing in the carnival procession! Weddings are fantastic and I have the best job in the world capturing all the passion, energy and excitement.

I feel so privileged to have been let in to so many peoples’ lives and would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of my 2011 couples and everyone I’ve worked with. So much laughter; so much love, and I feel very lucky to have been chosen to capture all those special moments for eternity.

Looking ahead, 2012 is set to be even more awesome, so I hope you will join me in raising a glass (or mug) to toast all the lovely couples getting married on the Isle of Wight in 2012.

I am delighted to announce that I have been featured on the amazing Rock ‘n Roll Bride wedding blog!

Why is this so exciting you might ask? Well the internationally renowned Rock ‘n Roll Bride is the No. 1 wedding blog in the UK and has been featured in newspapers and magazines such as Cosmopolitan Bride, The British Journal of Photography and The Guardian. It is also considered to be one of the most influential blogs in the world, inspiring brides to think outside of the conventional wedding norms and put their own mark on the day.

The site has a huge following and has been described as a ‘Mecca for gorgeous photography and inspiring real weddings’ and is ‘a little haven of kick ass weddingness’ so I’m incredibly honoured to grace its pages.

In Kat Williams own words “Rock ‘n Roll Bride promotes individuality and general awesomeness within a cookie cutter, pastel and puke-worthy wedding world. Don’t let the wedding industry define your day – let *you* define your day.”

Amazingness. One of my ambitions was to be featured by Kat, and here I am – a very happy Isle of Wight wedding photographer featured on Rock ‘n Roll Bride. Click here to read the full article: http://www.rocknrollbride.com/2011/09/48-couples-marry-at-bestival-in-the-big-love-inflatable-church/

P.S. It would be wicked if you could take 5 minutes to check out the feature, leave a comment and have a look around Kat’s site.
