Spring Wedding at Nonsuch Mansion

We had a wonderful spring day for the wedding of Debs and Pete at Nonsuch Mansion. Debs and her bridesmaids spent the morning in the Nonsuch bridal suite getting ready for the day ahead before heading off to Christ Church in Sutton for her wedding ceremony.

Purple was the theme for the day and this was reflected in the flowers created by Michelle Rust and the impressive cake which was made by a friend of the bride.

Who knows if it was nerves or just a bug, but come the day of the wedding, the groom had lost his voice and, although he managed to produce the words “I do!”, his speech was read for him by his bride.

The newlyweds are currently honeymooning in Borneo.

Wedding Flowers at Fulham Palace

Tove from Mary Jane Vaughan works on a wedding bouquet

I have photographed wedding flowers at Fulham Palace on many occasions for many different weddings and when the guys at Mary Jane Vaughan asked me if I would photograph some of their latest wedding ideas for their new cards I eagerly accepted.

We photographed a mixture of bouquets and table designs using the gorgeous natural light inside Fulham Palace.

I will post some of the images here in due course but for the time being above is a photograph I took of Tove from MJV preparing one of the bouquets.

A couple of weeks ago my friend Paul Trussell asked me if I could take a some photographs of him. Paul is a (very talented) actor and writer and needed some up to date portraits for his Spotlight profile.

I was only to pleased to say ‘yes’ as I knew that not only would I get some great photographs but I would  get to laugh a lot too!

This sequence of shots came about midway through our shoot when we were having some fun; I love the three contrasting moods Paul displays, all within a matter of seconds.
