I love these pictures from a shoot last year with one of my lovely wedding couples who’s wedding had subtle themes around the film ‘Up’ – hence the cool balloon!
Le Manoir is a stunning Oxfordshire wedding venue and I’m very lucky to live so close to it in the glorious Oxfordshire countryside. It is the perfect wedding venue for an intimate wedding ceremony and reception for you and your guests. The grounds are fabulous for your wedding photography and I hear the food is pretty good too!

Since Christmas I have been very busy booking weddings for 2014 and 2015, meeting couples and shooting pre wedding shoots. Although the weather has been pretty shocking we have been very lucky on the days the shoots are booked for, with some nice winter light and some lovely wintery colours. All of my clients who book a pre wedding shoot near to my home are advised to bring wellies this time of the year. We can get away without going off road too much but some industrial rubber on the soles of our feet will mean we can venture further.
This is a picture of a footpath where I regularly take my clients for photographs so you can see suitable footwear is advisable!
Just over a week ago I had the pleasure of photographing one of my couples who’s wedding will be at The Tythe Barn later this year. Paula and Dan booked my services over the internet and then came to see me to discuss their wedding day and for their pre wedding shoot. Paula had given me the ‘heads up’ that they had a bit of a theme to their wedding and would be bringing a balloon to the shoot. How cool I thought! I am not going to give the game away before the big day but all will become clear when you see the wedding pictures I post later in the year. We were blessed with a beautiful morning for the pre wedding shoot and got some wonderful images.
Here are a few of my favourites from the shoot.
The vintage look I apply to some of my pictures worked really well at this shoot and the most important thing to me is Paula and Dan loved them. I am really looking forward to their big day!

Your wedding flowers are such a beautiful part of your wedding day, take time to smell your flowers before the wedding service or ceremony, they will help you relax as you will have chosen some of your favourites and maybe they will even remind you of your childhood, parents or grandparents gardens.
Find a few minutes to take in all of the wonderful flowers at your venue and see how spectacular they look. Often the church or venue will smell of the flowers you have chosen. Speak to your florist about your favourite flowers, what is in season and what they are able to get as you plan your big day. Choose flowers that remind you of your loved ones who are perhaps no longer with us.
Some of my favourite florists in the south Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire area are listed below. Check out there websites for more information.
Here are some ideas to help you with your wedding flowers

A lovely little sequence of images of a very enthusiastic grandmother at a recent wedding. Caroline and Greg got married at Ambrosden church with their wedding reception at The Tythe Barn, one of my favourite Oxfordshire wedding venues.
The last photograph in this sequence makes me smile as the grandmother checks to see if there is any more confetti in the box.
Every wedding needs a cool gran!
Since my time at Venture I have photographed hundreds, probably thousands of babies over the years but there is nothing more adorable than a baby portrait shoot. For baby portrait shoots it is often best if I come to your home where we can do a few changes of clothes, some semi naked pics of your baby (with a towel strategically positioned!) Often all we need is some good window light, a warm floor or a bed. Sessions can last up to 2 hours so if your baby gets upset or needs feeding etc then there is plenty of time and nobody feels rushed or gets stressed!
Portrait session in your home in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire & Berkshire are from £50 depending on your location. Portrait vouchers make great gifts for new Mums and Dads so if you know of someone who has just had a baby then why not treat them to a portrait session?

With signs of Spring just about showing (I’m being very optimistic!), and the phone has started to ring with people wanting to book their family portrait photography , pre wedding shoot, engagement and new born baby photography sessions in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and beyond.
I offer outdoor family portrait photography, engagement photography or just portraits of your children playing outdoor and being themselves in my natural and relaxed style. for younger babies and children who are not yet walking it is often easier if we do the shoot in and around your home.
I shoot many portrait sessions in the local countryside around Marlow, Henley on Thames, Oxford, Thame and High Wycombe but always happy to travel further afield if you wish. With portrait shoots from just £25 my portrait vouchers make great gifts to give to your loved ones, family and friends.
Here are a lovely set of images I shot last summer in the countryside in Aston Rowant near my home with a lovely couple!
