I’m a professional photographer specialising in wedding, lifestyle, environmental and family portraits in Chepstow, Caldicot, Newport ,Mathern, Magor and extensively in South Wales, further by arrangement .

Lydia and Gavin had very romantically eloped quietly in Cornwall, so they wanted to celebrate their marriage surrounded by their friends and family at Woodlake Park Golf Club, where Gavin is the resident professional. They both wanted a very relaxed affair , concentrating on a photo session of the bride and groom, and then plenty of the guests and events as they progressed through the afternoon. In fact it was so relaxed that Gavin even helped out a little in the golf shop while everybody else was still getting ready!

I have to say, it was a really wonderful event, and the weather was extremely kind. The looks of emotion and surprise on the faces of Lydia and Gavin’s loved ones as they were met at the top of the staircase, by the most beautiful bride and bridegroom was priceless! Lydia’s gown was from Bridal Lane in Usk, and was so elegant, in a delicate blush colour, perfect for a summer wedding. Of course there were plenty of tears too, but of happiness and love!

The tables were named after famous golfers, and decorated with the most fantastic floral arrangements, all the pinks of hydrangeas, and the most glorious peonies, all by Joanne Alderson Flowers. Lots of pretty little finishing touches, of natural wood, added to the lovely summery theme of the day, and there were even games and masks to make for the children who were all a part of this family affair!

It’s always a privilege to be invited and included in a very special day,  and when you love a wedding as much as I do, you’ll understand just how much I enjoyed being there. It was truly an absolutely gorgeous celebration of marriage!

Making Memories

SOUTH WALES PHOTOGRAPHER , LMPA QUALIFIED,  AWARDED, EXPERIENCED and INSURED.

I’m an award winning childrens photographer offering services in  Chepstow, Caldicot, Newport Gwent, South Wales and further by arrangement .

Some of the sweet little girls I’ve taken photographs of through the summer of this year. Each child has their own personality, and I always hope to capture this during the photo session. Some are boisterous and confident, and others are a little shy. But i do know that in a short space of time, they ALL relax and want to play games…and that is when children’s photography becomes fun! After I’ve got the images I want, I am always excited to get home and start the process of making them into precious memories that you will treasure for years to come.

We can shoot indoors or outdoors, and I love to utilise a natural environment, to reflect your little boys and girls in the most  relaxed way possible, capturing the seasons, and their particular age. But don’t worry, I also have mobile studio lighting and backdrops for days when its not so pleasant to be outside. So just let me know what you want and I’ll be happy to help!

A Spring Wedding in Caldicot

Kayleigh and Jon’s wedding was at St.Mary’s Church in Caldicot, ( a medieval church and grade 1 listed building ),  on a very typical April day! I think we had everything from dark skies, to showers, to blazing sunshine.

After taking photos at Kayleigh’s grandmothers home of the bridal preparations, I set off to get shots of the nervous but happy bridegroom, Jon. The church was bedecked in large displays of gypsophilia, giving a fresh spring mood, and the grounds were full of the petals of magnolia. Everybody waited happily for the gorgeous bride to arrive with beaming Dad, Wayne. She looked radiant in a gown and veil that seemed to glow in the spring sunshine. Her bouquet was a stunning mixture of daffodils, butter toned roses,  and hyacinths to add a splash of cheerful colour, her bridesmaids dressed in complementary  pale lilac.

The service itself was beautiful, I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the house. From a photographers point of view it means emotional photography!… what could be more lovely?! This sweet couple are probably two of the happiest people I’ve met. They even laughed when the rain poured down as they came out of the church, and everybody dashed around for umbrellas and shelter. But it wouldn’t be April without a shower or two, and it soon disappeared leaving more fine weather for photography at Caldicot Castle. The grounds are perfect for bridal portraits, and the pretty soft light really enhanced Kayleigh’s beautiful complexion and when you have two people as full of joy as these two, I knew we would have some romantic, and happy images.

And on to the Coldra Court Hotel in Newport for a magical wedding reception.  Twinkling lights, and lots of little keepsakes reflecting our Welsh heritage gave the venue a very special feel. A large backlit display of “Cariad”, the Welsh word for love, and affection, added a really nice touch to this wonderful and happy occasion.

All my weddings make me happy, how could you not get swept up in a day that is full of good wishes, love and hope for the future?
