South of France wedding photography, Carmargue, with Erin and James

Nestled in the Camargue region of southern france, lies an idyllic 500 year old farmhouse run by the quintessential Frenchman Jean Claude. When Erin and James got engaged, they immediately thought of Le Mas de Barbut and knew it would make an enchanting wedding venue. Situated just outside Aigues Mortes, this place packs a punch when it comes to character and charm. Rustic and classically French, the vine covered walls, flowers, artefacts found in the natural grounds, ginger moggies, and stunning gardens added to this heavenly spot. Erin and James enjoyed their day with their six month old daughter Niamh and 50 other guests. A beautiful ceremony was followed by a naming ceremony for Niamh before drinks and canopies were served in the courtyard. The nearby beach and countryside provided a great backdrop to some shots before heading back for an alfresco dinner. The attention to detail on the dinner tables was exquisite, and following the amazing French food and wines, Erin and James did their first dance with little Niamh before old movies were played against a moonlit night sky – a perfectly romantic day for a gorgeous couple. Congratulations to both Erin and James! x

Civil partnership photography in London with Joe and Jim

This was a very special London civil partnership between the gorgeous Joe and Jim. These guys met a few years ago and knew immediately they were right for each other. American born Jim soon relocated to London and the rest is history… history which was made at Queens tennis club in west London – this was certainly a civil partnership with a difference and I loved photographing the guys playing tennis on the courts most famously graced by the world’s top tennis players. With some live singing and guitar playing, touching readings from close family members and a fun reception on the river at The Depot in Barnes, this was a great day for everyone involved. Congratulations Jim and Joe! x
