Man on the moon Buzz Aldrin drops in | Buzz Aldrin portrait

"To infinity and beyond...." is probably a saying that world famous astronaut Buzz Aldrin has had to get used to since Woody and the gang hit the big screen. Although Mr Aldrin's super fine comeback can be found in the title of his Twitter feed @TheRealBuzz 

It was a pleasure and an honour to photograph this great man on a recent visit to the UK. Also, to listen to him talk about the Apollo missions that he was involved in, and then ultimately setting foot on the surface of the moon 2nd only to his fellow astronaut and Apollo 11 commander, Neil Armstrong. I was 3 years old when the 'Eagle' landed and have been fascinated with space and the planets ever since. To actually meet a man that has so famously walked on the moon, well...more than a dream come true.

Coltsfoot Country Retreat wedding photography | James and Holly

Weddings at Coltsfoot Country Retreat are a wonderful thing. No matter the weather, I always seem to pull something out of the bag at this superb, intimate venue and James and Holly's wedding was no exception. I was blessed with glorious sunshine for some of the day and could have done with some factor 30 at one point but it was worth getting a little hot under the collar for some superb images at this fantastic wedding. And just when things were getting a little too warm, a nice bit of cloud cover helped out.

James and Holly were married at St Lawrence Church in Wormley, Hertfordshire moving on to Coltsfoot Country Retreat for their wedding reception. Holly looked stunning in her Vera Wang wedding gown finished off with a pair of Kurt Geiger heels. James was a bit of a cool dude in his tailored suit and was so comfortable in front of the camera that it made my job pretty simple.

It was a pleasure to photograph your Coltsfoot Country Retreat wedding you guys and here are a few images from your special day.

Wedding gown: Vera Wang
Shoes: Kurt Geiger
Flowers: Sioned Rogers

The Sheene Mill wedding photographer | Lisa and Sam

As usual it has been ages since I last posted but I just had to pop this one image up from last week's wedding of Lisa and Sam at The Sheene Mill in Melbourn. This really does have a magical feel about it. More images to follow but for now....

Cyprus wedding photographer | Nissi Beach Hotel wedding | Leanne and Dave



Wow!

That is the one word that I would choose to describe Leanne and Dave's destination wedding photography in Cyprus. The Nissi Beach Hotel in Ayia Napper to be precise. From start to finish (which was late into the evening) I had to be on my game. I was and I had a ball.

From arriving mid afternoon on the Wednesday (the wedding was on the Friday) I was promptly invited out for Dave's 'second' stag do. Fortunately minus the camera as when we hit the strip quite a bit of alcohol was consumed and I definitely would have struggled to get anything sharp. A 4am finish was a little later than I had anticipated, but I had the luxury of a little lay-in on the Thursday before I was due to meet the happy couple at their hotel to go over a few of their wedding plans and get a feel for the location. I have to say, the Nissi Beach Hotel had me drooling with the design and layout of it's beautiful gardens and private beach. The fact that the temperature was in the mid 90's was the only obstacle that I had to overcome. But, come the wedding day, factor 30, a gentle ocean breeze as they said there vows atop a small cliff overlooking the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, and all was cool in the Cypriot hood.

We had the sun and later even a little bit of rain and the odd streak of lightning but the day could not have gone any better. After their first dance there was even an opportunity to shoot a few sunset silhouette's and a little off camera flash for something a little different. All in all, it is fun being a destination wedding photographer!
