Images published in national magazines




Good Morning Folks,

I have been over the moon that a number of my product photography images have appeared in national magazines this year, so I thought it was high time I showed a few :)

It was a pleasure to photograph the wedding cakes of the magnificent Janeymac Cakes who we are lucky enough to have in East Grinstead. Elaine creates the most amazing bespoke cakes that look as mouth watering as they taste. I have made it my mission to taste a fair bit of cake over the years and hand on heart Elaine from Janeymac is one of the best I have ever tasted. Her designs are exquisite and whenever I walk into a reception room the quality of a Janeymac cake just screams at me!

Elaine and I have been lucky enough to feature in both the summer and autumn editions of Wedding Cakes a Design Source; happy days indeed.

Keep looking out as there will be other posts showing some of my other published work.

So now back to editing and album design today, editing is full of joy watching images spring to life and album design is reliving a wonderful wedding day all over again, so a day of lovely contrasts.

Weddings at Swallows Oast Ticehurst East Sussex - Rachael and Patrick

Good Afternoon Folks,

Welcome to part two showcasing the wedding photography at Swallows Oast in Ticehurst East Sussex of Rachael and Patrick.

Part one saw us at another amazing wedding venue in Sevenoaks; West Heath School and I loved the fact that they had chosen two very different locations to celebrate their big day. Swallows Oast is just that a beautiful old oast house nestled in rolling hills that is the East Sussex countryside. We arrived at the wedding venue and it was good for everyone to have a little more champers and tuck into the canapés before sitting down to a hearty feast. Julie and I were very happy (well me as Julie is not big on sweet things) to have what I think was the biggest Eton Mess I have ever seen. Julie loved it so it must have been good!

We then went off for an evening stroll to capture some lovely moments in the golden evening sun. We had the most hilarious time and my sides were aching with laughing! Julie came up with a most unusual invention, all I can say it that will stay between us but she is determined to take in on Dragon's Den…good luck with that one me Julie ;)

So without further ado on to today's images. I am featuring the amazing field that is just beyond the woodland walk, the light was just sublime here and I loved the far reaching views that are in abundance. Again just another image away from the rustic grass and last but not least this images that I adore, Rachael is sitting quietly by the tree gazing into the distance and the overall effect reminds me of something out of a Constable painting; it really is very tranquil.

This weekend sees Remembrance Sunday and I will be taking time out to remember all those that sacrificed their lives for us.
