Emma and Steve, South Wigston / Kilworth House

Images from Emma and Steves wedding at St Thomas Church in South Wigston and the fabulous Kilworth House Hotel in Leicestershire.

When i first met Emma and Steve in 2008 i knew i had to shoot their wedding and was made up when they booked me.
Why did i want this wedding so much? a gorgeous venue like Kilworth helps, but what really made it was their enthusiasm for their wedding day and for my work. Making their day unique and choosing the right photographer was very important for them and i felt privileged that they chose me to capture their day.

It was a great wedding to photograph and what topped it off for me was the evening reception. Music from the brilliant Paul Martyn, then an acoustic set from three of their friends and then possibly the best first dance song…ever. On paper theres no way The Fratellis Whistle for the Choir should work as a first dance but it did brilliantly.

Emma and Steve are currently still on honeymoon so all the images will be up online here and when they return, but in the meantime heres a few of my favourites from the day and a slideshow here

Summer Sundae Weekender 2009

This was nearly 2 months ago but ive been so busy with designing album layouts, shooting weddings, fashion shoots and London Fashion Week (more from those in the coming weeks), that this is the first chance that ive had to post any shots from this years Summer Sundae Weekender held at De Montfort Hall in Leicester back in August.

Really enjoyed the sets from newcomers Bombay Bicycle Club, Emmy the Great, The Airborne Toxic Event and Leicester lads The Heroes who managed to beat the rest and get their photo into a national newspapers review of the festival…well kind of.
The Independent used one of my photos from the festival, it was supposed to be of Mr Hudson, the caption says Mr Hudson but it’s a shot of The Heroes (see below). Ok they got in by accident but hey ho.

For those of us that hit teenage years in the nineties we had The Charlatans and the brilliant St Etienne. (for those of you who remember Sarah Cracknell, yes she still looks great).

Whilst the Charlatans were running through there brilliant back catalogue outside on the main stage, the younger generation headed indoors and went a little bit mental for Mr Hudson.

Im not posting too many from this years festival as i have loads of new exciting stuff to post soon and also it seems so long ago, but heres a few.

If you want to see more, full gallery sets from loads of artists will be up here very soon.
