It’s wedding fair season …

I’m delighted to have been invited to show at two venues this weekend which have me on their list of preferred suppliers. ┬áSo if you are coming along to the Wedding Experience at Hadlow Manor this Sunday 11 March, do pop by and say hello … I’m also having a small stand at Stonelees Golf Club (because sadly I can’t be in two places at once!).

You can see images from my most recent wedding at Hadlow Manor in a blog post here: Karen and Dan at Hadlow Manor … and I’m looking forward to photographing my first wedding at Stonelees where I visited on a very sunny day last year: Stonelees Golf Club.

If you are visiting Stonelees and are interested in receiving a quote or booking a consultation for your wedding day photography, please do fill out one of the forms which you will find on my stand. And, of course, if you are visiting Hadlow Manor (Hadlow Manor wedding fair times), we can always sit down and have a chat and you can tell me all about your plans. There is a special additional extra for wedding photography bookings taken at Stonelees and Hadlow … there will be a QR code for you to scan or a weblink to download. So it really is worth popping along, seeing some albums in their full glory and maybe watching a slideshow or two!

See you there!

I attended the Wedding Experience wedding fair at Hadlow Manor yesterday and heard about so many different wedding plans! I just thought that I would put up a quick blog post which includes some shots which I took earlier on this year for Hadlow Manor’s wedding brochure. As a wedding photographer, we always look for light … whether it is natural or from a chandelier and I am delighted that Hadlow Manor has lots of lovely light!

Of course, I don’t just photograph weddings at Hadlow Manor … I’ll be emailing out to all of the lovely brides who took the time to stop and chat. I’d love to hear more about your plans and, of course, to photograph lots of your gorgeous weddings!

Hadlow Manor {wedding fair}

What an amazing day! So many happy and excited brides-to-be and their fiances and/or friends! The sun shone on Hadlow Manor and in excess of 100 brides came through the door.

If you are one of the brides who picked up my card or stopped by for a chat, do please get in touch so that we can discuss your plans further. As an additional incentive, I will be offering 10% off all packages to brides who book me as a result of the wedding fair. Just tell me the colour of my promotional giveaway pens to secure the booking.

There are certain dates in the wedding year which are very popular with couples, especially those during half term and school holidays and the peak summer months. If you are planning a summer wedding in 2012, please don’t delay in finding your key suppliers otherwise you could be disappointed to find that they are already booked.

Do drop me an email, give me a call 07786 314973 and check out my website

If you missed the chance to meet me in person at Hadlow Manor, don’t forget that I will be exhibiting at the Pines Calyx this coming Sunday, 27 March, more details in my post here: Pines Calyx wedding fair.

If you want to meet me in person {upcoming wedding fairs}

Face-to-face meetings really work for me. Email is something that we can all hide behind and I love hearing about wedding plans and hopes and dreams and desires of brides-to-be.

Even if you are not quite ready to book your wedding photographer, come along, meet me in person and look at the beautiful albums and canvases that I will have on display. We can easily schedule a further meeting to discuss all of your plans for your wedding day. There is no commitment, just a chat over coffee.

To that end, I am pleased to announce that I will be standing at two wedding fairs in March as follows:

Sunday 20 March 2011 – Hadlow Manor

I will be in the preferred suppliers area at Hadlow Manor which is near Tonbridge. Entrance is free and the fair opens at 10.30am. You can find more details here). And you can see images of a photoshoot that I recently had at Hadlow Manor on a separate post on my blog here.

Sunday 27 March 2011 – The Pines Calyx

I am one of three preferred suppliers for photography at this beautiful eco-friendly wedding venue in St Margarets Bay in Dover. I am photographing a September wedding there and very much hope that the weather is as glorious as when I shot these images pictures at Pines Calyx wedding venue. You can find more details about the wedding open day by clicking here.

Is it too late to book if I am getting married in 2011?

I do have some availability remaining for 2011 but the key dates are going fast. Do contact me to find out whether I am available. 2012 bookings are going very well and I am currently taking bookings as far ahead as August.

How do I contact you?

You can email me on, give me a call on 07786 314973 and check out my website

Already married?

And if you are already married but fancy the idea of booking a “rock the frock” session, come and have a chat so that I can tell you more! Some examples of recent rock the frock sessions are here: rock the frock photoshoot in Surrey .
