The light came back

“Every year, in the third week of February, there is a day, or, more usually, a run of days, when one can say for sure that the light is back. Some juncture has been reached, and the light spills into the world from a sun suddenly higher in the sky.” ~ Kathleen Jamie, ‘Light’ from…

Winter in the gardens

Round here in Guildford, it seems as though there haven’t been many properly frosty, frozen mornings this winter. Perhaps they’re on their way later than we’ve been expecting… The down-time of late winter brings a bit of a slower pace, which I enjoy more than I used to – I look forward to the return…

Florence flying visit

While we’re in the depths of winter, I wanted to show you some of the pictures I took in magical Florence during a visit with friends last autumn. A small group of us from both the UK and Europe enjoy meeting up for what has become a Photography, Food and Friends time that we all…

Autumn visit to Hillier Gardens

One of my favourite outings in the autumn was to meet up with Garden Media Guild members to be shown around the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens near Romsey. It was my first time meeting fellow Guild folks in person, and we were rewarded with the sort of couldn’t-be-more-perfect weather that October likes to pull out…

Launch of The Blend Academy Winchester

This autumn has seen the launch of a fantastic new gin-making experience, from the founder of Winchester Distillery and based in the heart of the Hampshire town. I’ve been along to photograph both the launch party, and a full gin-blending session – learning a fair bit along the way, about the history of gin, its…

Autumn planting at RHS Wisley

After a hectic summer, I’m enjoying the creative time to make some of my own photographs. I was fortunate to be accepted into the Garden Media Guild and Professional Garden Photographers Association this year, and I’m looking forward to doing more of what I love in 2019 – visiting public and private gardens, meeting horticulturalists,…

Guildford and Ramster Hall spring wedding

This beautiful Guildford and Ramster Hall wedding is one I’ve been looking forward to sharing. From the groom’s reaction to his bride walking in, to the fun and evident joy of two families coming together; from the groom’s sister leading the singing in church, to his brother’s inspired Tim Vine-song best man’s speech; from the…

Summer engagement photography Oxford

In the middle of preparing for their Hong Kong wedding later this year, Lorraine & David made a summer trip to the UK and planned to have their pre-wedding photographs taken somewhere historic, beautiful, and very recognisably British. We settled on Oxford as the perfect place to show them around some of the beautiful parks…

Scotland’s North Coast 500

I’ve been meaning to share a fuller picture of a road trip we took last summer around the far north coast of Scotland. Billed by the tourist board as the ‘North Coast 500’, it’s also been touted as the best road trip in the world. You certainly get a hugely varied amount of spectacular scenery,…
