Le Manoir Wedding Photography

LMQAS-ML-IMG_8158_001Le 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!

Waterperry Project – my first few visits

This year I am embarking on a personal project to photograph the gardeners and gardens of Waterperry, Oxfordshire. Historically Waterperry was a very inspiring and interesting garden made famous by Beatrix Havergal who founded the women’s horticultural school there in 1932. I will be visiting the gardens throughout the year and recording the lives of those that work there. There has already been much interest in the project and there is a small gallery of images on my Facebook page



A little bit of colour to cheer us all up from #Waterperry Gardens.

With all this rain and cold weather I though we all needed cheering up so I just had a look at some of the images I took at Waterperry Gardens a few weekends ago on a jolly with Mrs Lord.

Becky armed with Instagram and me with my camera we had a great time photographing the blossom at it’s best in the orchards of Waterperry as well as many other plant varieties.  I want to try a few things out with floral photography, something less precise and more artistic than the technically perfect images of flora we see in catalogues and magazines. I hope to make several visits to Waterperry this year and build a collection of more expressionistic images of flora and botanical images for future use in the countryside part of my business.

Here are a few working images I have put through Lightroom to share with you.

The next step is an early morning start to catch the early morning light! Good night all!
