Back in June I went to the amazing Stanway House, near Cheltenham, for the awesome wedding of Matt and Louise! Matt and Louise are total legends and their wedding did not disappoint! Ever since I met them last Autumn I knew we’d be a great match and come the wedding in June I knew it even more. As I spent more and more time with them I could tell they were very special people and there was a real lot of fondness for them both from everyone at the wedding!

Their day was just perfect – an idyllic church setting, a stunning venue in Stanway House, a super cool classic Golf GTI, a giant fountain, a stunning barn, amazing speeches, epic dancing and most of all an absolutely brilliant group of family and friends! It is ultimately the people who make a wedding and I would say their wedding opitmised this!

We kicked off in the morning at Louise’s family home – a stunning house in Horton, with all the girls getting ready there, along with Ben, Louise’s brother. All the morning prep went smoothly and to plan! We headed then for a lovely ceremony, led by Dana (who I must say was the most welcoming vicar I’ve ever worked with at a wedding – thank you again Dana!) in the most beautiful church at St Peter & St Paul Church, Blockley. The service was upbeat, warm and full of a lot of love! Following the marriage ceremony, and after a very enthusiastic set of hugs and kisses with all the guests, everyone headed to Stanway House – which was about 30 minutes drive – for the the rest of the day’s celebrations. The weather was dry and warm, so plan A for outdoor drinks was enacted and we were able to do all their photos outside which was great!

The barn was amazingly set out – including handmade bunting – and superbly led by Lee at Strawberry Fields Catering (who was an absolute pleasure to work with!). The whole wedding breakfast looked stunning (see photos below!).

I absolutely loved shooting Matt and Louise’s wedding at Stanway House. It really was my ideal wedding to be at and I one I will look back on fondly! Thank you again guys for entrusting me with your photos – an absolute joy! Wishing you both many years of happiness together!

I met Catherine and Steve at the wedding of Charlie and Duncan last October and when Steve got in touch about doing their wedding at Buxted Park in Sussex I was super chuffed! These guys are seriously nice people, really fun and hot!

So much I could see say about this day but I’ll keep it simple and let the photos do the talking! You’ll see it was a very happy, buoyant, lively wedding on a beautiful July day! They both honestly did not stop grinning all day!

We kicked off at Catherine’s parent’s house with her squad of amazing, excited bridemaids – all of whom was buzzing and so pumped! (Which I loved and made for a great morning!)

I was fortunate to have the top man Sean Weekly shooting for me and he went with the boys who got ready at Buxted Park (far too many photos of them all in pants to share here!)

We all convened the beautiful church next to Buxted Park for a lovely ceremony – where you guessed it – Catherine and Steve kept beaming for the entire service!

Proceedings continued at Buxted Park with a very fun reception! The speeches were superb (well done Duncan and Dave!) and also a shout out to the venue manager at Buxted Park who was the funniest guy ever seen (I wish I could remember his name – answers on a postcard please!) We had an epic dancefloor and when I had to say goodbye at 10pm I was quite gutted as the party was on fire!

What can I say?! All in all a superb day. Two people madly in love, with great family and friends, at a stunning venue and an awesome day was had all round!

I personally loved it so a big thank you to Catherine and Steve for having me along! You guys are legends and I’m so glad I got to be at your wedding! (Special shout out to Duncan and Charlie for introducing me!). Big love to you all!

Enjoy these highlights!

Last weekend I had the absolute privilege to head to the Greek island of Santorini to capture Sophie & Shawn’s wedding at Le Ciel so I was super excited to share some of my Santorini wedding photos. It’s pretty hard to sum up what a brilliant few days it was and how spectacular a location Santorini is for photos. I would honestly say it’s probably the most idyllic spot I’ve ever shot at! I would happily be a Santorini wedding photographer all of the year!

Sophie & Shawn live in the UK, but with Sophie’s father being Greek it was an obvious choice to decide to marry out in Santorini. I met Sophie a couple of years back as she’s also in the wedding industry as a make-up artist extraordinaire (check her out if you’re getting  married and looking for someone!)!

They got ready at the Boathouse – located in Kamari, on the east coast of the island. Sophie had an awesome entourage of bridesmaids and her little girl Summer was the cutest little thing in her dress! Spirits were high as everyone then set off for the west cost of Santorini to Le Ceil – about 5 minutes from the stunning town of Imerovigli (check it out if you want to visit Santorini for your holiday!).

The ceremony (as you’ll see below in my favourite Santorini wedding photos) was outside, with the most amazing backdrop. It was a special moment to see Shawn’s face as he saw his two little ones come down the aisle (10 out of 10 to Stef and Summer for such a brilliant entrance!). Then he got to see his stunning bride Sophie who looked so good in her custom made dress by Rae Sims, as she walked down to the amazing voice of her friend Amy Langmead (who sung John’s Lennon’s “All of Me’). The ceremony was warm and full of smiles and was followed by drinks on the terrace as the afternoon sun baked down.

The guests enjoyed a delicious meal, then some awesome speeches from Shawn’s Dad (and best man), Susi, Sophie’s Dad and the main man himself Shawn – with lots of laughs and tears as a result. The evening kicked off with some local Greek dancers leading the way before plenty of epic dancefloor action!

We didn’t quite get a classic sunset but we still got outside at 8pm for what turned out to be some pretty epic portraits of Sophie & Shawn! These guys were total pros and I loved working with them.

It was an absolute joy to go to Santorini for this wedding – I hope you like these Santorini wedding photos. Thank you again to Sophie and Shawn for asking me – such an honour! Wishing you guys many years of happiness!

Finally a big shout out to Liron Erel who filmed alongside me and Michael at Weddings in Santorini.

A couple of weeks ago I headed into London on a beautiful spring day for Colleen and Matt’s amazing One Marylebone wedding in central London!

I’ve known Colleen for many years having worked with her at an ad agency in town. So it was particularly awesome when her and Matt asked me to shoot their wedding! I was really chuffed and their day at One Marylebone didn’t disappoint at all!

We kicked off at the prestigious Langham hotel near Oxford Street, where Colleen got ready with her entourage of fantastically fun ladies in Emma, Jo, Helen, Lucy, Emma and Georgia and some of her family. Everyone was buzzing and Colleen was super relaxed and just smiled constantly! She looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero dress.

I also got to head over and hang out with the Matt and the boys too and had a great time with them on Abbey Road. A top quality group of lads – it was great catching a few of them having some pre-wedding beers!

We then headed to One Marylebone – a really beautiful venue and one I would massively recommended for a central London wedding. Right opposite Great Portland St tube, and a stone’s throw from Regent’s Park, One Marylebone is bright and airy, and one thing I loved was that it has outdoor drinks space – which is pretty unique to get in centre of London.

The sun beamed down as Colleen arrived in her super cream London taxi and the ensuing ceremony was a really lovely and happy occasion! Guests were able to head out for drinks in some gorgeous spring light and the wedding breakfast room looked amazing fully set up.

The speeches were epic – some great reactions you’ll see below and the party was in full swing when I left!

All in all it was a brilliant wedding to be at and Colleen and Matt were so good to work with! Everyone was great fun and really welcoming and I had a blast!

These guys are on our honeymoon now so I thought I’d put a few favourites on my blog as a little taster for them!

Thanks Matt and Colleen – an awesome One Marylebone wedding and I wish you guys many years of happiness together!!

In the wedding photography world there is no greater honour than another wedding photographer asking you to shoot their wedding! It’s also quite scary! But the honour, and excitement, definitely outweighs the fear and it was with a huge wave of excitement I went into Katie (of Katie Drouet Photography) and Jack’s wedding a couple of weeks back in Suffolk at the East Anglian Train Museum at Chappel & Wakes Colne train museum.

I first met Katie back in the summer of 2015 at a wedding photographer’s gathering (we like to meet up sometimes and have a break from our editing screens!). I got to meet her man of many years Jack for some photos too and we had a great time! We stayed in touch over the summer and one day I saw on Facebook (the one and only place to know what the world is up to!) Jack had done some fine work and proposed to the lovely Katie! When she then asked me if I’d shoot the wedding I was blown away and so so chuffed. Katie and Jack are such amazing, super nice people, and so I knew their wedding was going to be awesome. I must say it didn’t disappoint at all – I absolutely loved it! I was so excited for the wedding and probably text Katie every day in the lead up to it such was the excitement!!

Katie got ready and her place in the picturesque Suffolk town of Sudbury with her band of lovely ladies! Katie’s parents were in attendance too and it was an all round fantastic morning. Katie couldn’t have been any more welcoming to me and so easy going – it was a dream!

We then headed to the Chappel & Wakes train museum just across the border into good old Essex for the ceremony and ensuing reception. Katie had done such a fantastic job with her details! The room looked amazing and so many cute things dotted around. She had enlisted the help of wedding superstar Caroline Gould to run the day and she and her team did a brilliant job.

Jack was looking very cool in his tweed suit and the look on his face as Katie walked down the aisle was really wonderful! The ceremony was beautifully led by Bridget Garrett.  As a celebrant she oversaw what was a really personal, special exchange of vows and rings between Katie and Jack and with the Suffolk Soul Singers providing some great live music the whole ceremony was perfect.

The sun shone and we had an ideal spring day (minus a bit of wind!) as the guests enjoyed drinks and train rides on the miniature railway! The wedding breakfast had an afternoon tea theme (well done Jam Tartz catering on a fine job and thank you for my pre-London marathon pasta dinner!) and there were train carriages for everyone to sit in if they wished. The speeches were fantastic (I love love speech time!) and the evening party were awesome. I was gutted to leave when I did as it was so good!

Katie and Jack were an absolute joy to shoot. These guys are so so nice and just made me feel so part of their day. A huge huge congrats to Mr and Mrs Herbert!! I love you both loads!

It’s Monday and I’m still buzzing from such a good time with Matt and Rox at Chilston Park on Saturday! Their wedding had everything and more and so I’m so so excited to share some of my favourites now!

I was fortunate enough to meet Matt when he was best man at his cousin Dave’s wedding in 2013. He’s such a top guy – forever smiling and full of energy! Since then he went on to meet the beautiful Roxanne which led to an incredible proposal (he wrote out ‘Will You Marry Me’ with hay bales and showed her from the sky in helicopter!) and a call to ask me if I’d like to do their wedding at Chilston Park. Having done another of Matt’s cousin’s wedding – Amy – last May – I knew that weddings with this family were always awesome and Saturday did not disappoint!

The day in summary… we kicked off at Rox’s parent’s house in Great Chart, near Maidstone. Rox’s Mum is French so I dusted off my French skills (“petit Francais”…) and had a fun morning with the extended family as we prepped for the day ahead. Rox’s dress was stunning and she really looked amazing. Her Dad Dave was the nicest Dad ever (Matt you’re a lucky man!) and his reaction to seeing Rox when she came down the stairs was so special (I do love it when a Dad sheds a wee tear!).

The ceremony was at St.Mary’s in Great Chart – a lovely light church which provided the perfect setting for Matt & Rox to exchange their vows. Rox’s 11 year-old cousin did an amazing solo during the signing of the register. After lots of hugging and kissing everyone headed to Chilston Park for the rest of the day. The weather was on the grey side but it didn’t dampen spirits at all. Spirits were high and they got even higher when the guests were surprised by an amazing performance by The Three Waiters who appeared during the wedding breakfast. These guys really set the wedding to the next level and proved to be a wonderful, and unique, addition to the day (well done Dave for the idea and making it happen!).  From then on in the day got better and better. The speeches were truly awesome and the party was cracking.

All in all this was a brilliant day and I was so thankful to be there. A huge thanks to Rox and Matt for having me along. I hope you guys have a lovely honeymoon!

Finally a big big thanks to Sean Weekly Photography for joining me for this one and for providing some stunning images (some of which are below!) and also a mention to Keith and Andy Ignite Films who we worked alongside with! Can’t wait to see the film!

Last month Debs and Shane got married in London on Valentine’s weekend and it was an absolutely cracking wedding! So so good. Where do I start? Debs got ready at home in Wandstead – East London. We’d not met until the day but soon as I met her I knew what a great time we were going to have. Debs is super friendly, fun and super relaxed. She looked awesome in her dress from Fur Coat No Knickers  – it totally suited her. She looked amazing! Flowers were provided by Rebel Rebel and looked fantastic. The girls were all ready well on time so we had plenty of time in the morning.

We then headed to Valentines Mansions in Ilford for the ceremony (via a small hiccup with passports!) for what was a lovely, warm and really happy wedding. Shane looked a wee nervous beforehand but come the time he was his wife-to-be at the front it was all smiles. It was so lovely to have them give personal vows to each other. So very special. I loved seeing how happy they were!

We then all jumped on a classic London bus for our trip into central London to get to the Artisan of Clerkenwell for the rest of the day’s action. Spirits were high and the drinks were flowing – so it made for an awesome wedding to capture. The room was so beautifully laid out (see photos below!) and the atmosphere was brilliant. I loved the speeches – so many great expressions and so much love was shared! I really quite crazily amazing cake – that looked too good to be touched – was cut and the evening celebrations followed excitedly. All in all a brilliant day!

Debs and Shane were a top top couple and I loved being at their wedding. I wish you guys so much happiness and I hope our paths cross again!

Here are some of my favourite Artisan Of Clerkenwell wedding photos. If you’re looking for a London reportage wedding photographer give me a shout!

My 2015 review

Happy New Year!

I finished my 2015 weddings on New Years Eve, so hence why this post is a bit later as I wanted everyone to be included.

2015 was special for me because it was the year I finally (I probably should have done it sooner!) went full time as a wedding photographer. It was always a big leap to give up a marketing career I’d put so much in to, but 9 months on I can definitely say it was the right decision and I’m absolutely loving it. It’s full on, there’s never a quiet moment and every wedding takes a lot out of you but it’s still the best job I think someone can have because of the nature of what we do. Witnessing love, happy moments and a big group of people having a great time is a real honour and so I will always be thankful for doing what I do.

People always say “don’t you get bored of going to loads of weddings?” and l always have the same answer – “no, because every one is different.” Although weddings broadly follow the same pattern for the day, every wedding is full of different people and it’s the people that make a wedding. I’ve met so so many awesome folk in the last 12 months and I have made many new friends. I love that my couples last year got that I don’t want to be “the photographer”, I want to be Jonny and being Jonny means a better time for me and ultimately better photos for you. If you just see your photographer as a supplier you’ll never get the moments in the same way. The times people call me “Jonny” from the moment I walk in on the day of the wedding I know the day is immediately more personal, that I’m more connected and it’s that close relationship that is so important to me and enables me to get the intimate viewpoint on a wedding day I crave.

2015 saw me travel in all directions – Liverpool, Norfolk, Staffordshire and Bristol to name a few – plus two amazing destination weddings in Slovenia and France. I wouldn’t want it any other way. It’s the adventure of every wedding that keeps me on my toes and excited for every one. In the months ahead I’ll be going to York, Ibiza, Cornwall, Wales and Santorini. Travelling is a privilege and one I really enjoy.

I got to photograph my first Indian and Jewish weddings, saw a new bridesemaids record set (11!), heard many many beautiful vows, listened to amazing speeches, ate a lot of buffet food (and sweets) and took over 120,000 photos in the process. It was a lot of fun and a lot of great memories for sure!

A huge thank to all my couples. You were all awesome!

And finally here are my 2015 prizes:

  • Best wedding photographer feeding – Langley Abbey / Amy & Mike of Brastad’s (What can I say – 2 desserts and the title was yours!)
  • Most unexpected weather – Sarah & Kieran (It was early April and it felt like mid-summer. The weather a week before was awful so I think I said ‘wow how lovely is this’ about 100 times during the day!)
  • Best first dance – Sophie & Mike with “You’ve Got The Love.” (This was a dance floor orgy of happiness of every guest hugging. There was a lot of love!)
  • Fav wedding buddy – Liron Erel of Liron Erel Photography. (This man came all the way from Israel to make my trip to Slovenia even more better!)
  • Best sunset – Paula & Mat (absolutely EPIC red sky!)
  • Most epic journey – Chichester to Liverpool overnight from Jonny & Emma’s wedding to Seth & Prachi’s the next day
  • Most photos taken – Edward & Alexis (between Igor and myself we took almost 8k over 13 hours!)
  • Best wedding cake – Katie & Leigh (this was a really hard one but had to be their Alice In Wonderland cake!)
  • Most scary moment – Laura & Ollie’s ‘everyone shot’ (standing on the wobbliest ladder ever with 150 people close to witnessing your downfall…)

Finally a special mention to these guys who all 2nd shot with me last year. I don’t often have a 2nd but when I do I always love having them with me. A big thanks Igor DembaMaja Tsolo, Colin Ross and Lily Bungay!

Anyway here are my favourites from over 35,000 photos!

Enjoy!

This was one of those weddings where you come away and realise you’ve just documented two very special people. I had known this Malmesbury winter wedding was going to be off the charts as I used to work with the incredibly amazing Bryony (so I had first hand experience of her awesomeness) but I think Saturday surpassed my expectations – it really was ‘next level.’ It had everything and it was a fine way to conclude my weddings before the Christmas break!

Bryony and Dicky’s first dance song was “Days Like These” and it was a very apt title for such a day. It was day like this that they’ll look back on with such fondness forever and with many good reasons!

Dicky and Bryony are just one of those couples that are just insanely nice people and so they are incredibly popular and incredibly loved by a lot of people. Their wedding day totally reflected them – just one big tidal wave of enthusiasm, love and fun, mixed it with some very personal additions to the day. We had sing-along in the ceremony, a full blast of Christmas carols (sung with real gusto my all in attendance) and a memorable set of speeches. It was non-stop energy and it was exactly how I know Bryony and Dicky would have dreamed of it – all their super close friends and family (who mean the world to them) all in one place, for one special special Malmesbury winter wedding day.

The whole wedding was in, or around, Malmesbury in Wiltshire. If you’ve not been to Malmesbury before you need to go. It’s a beautiful little Cotswolds town, with quintessential features galore demonstrating England at it’s finest. Having both grown up there it was fitting their wedding day was in such a personal to them. The girls got ready at Bryony’s parents house and were super fun and very welcoming which I was very grateful for! Bryony looked absolutely amazing in her Charlie Brear dress and Sarah and Gemma did a fantastic job with her hair and make-up. They then processed, with Stevie Cox leading the way, to the Town Hall for what was such a lovely, warm ceremony. I absolutely love church weddings 100%, but the only thing I think they ever lack is the ability to make personal vows. And so a civil ceremony provides a basis for such a personal occasion and what they declared to each other was truly wonderful. The words they shared for each other would have even moved the most stoic amongst us and you couldn’t help feel a sense of “ahhhh you guys” inside as you listened!

Following the ceremony everyone headed to the famous Old Bell hotel in Malmesbury for drinks, before heading on a good old London bus to the really wonderful Matara Centre. It provided the perfect venue for the rest of the day as everyone feasted on the finest local sausages (I managed to take down five thanks to some champagne swaps I did with my table buddy!) and danced the night away. It really was just an all round awesome wedding and the speeches totally reflected that with all the gentleman keeping everyone entertained with a glut of brilliant lines, personal stories and a fine dose of all round genuine love and thankfulness.

So I’ll have over to the photos now – sit back and enjoy this extended selection!

A huge thanks to Dicky and Bryony for having me! So so grateful and I wish you all the best as the might Mr and Mrs Lester!

regionalfinalist_4

Last night the winner of the London and South-East region best wedding photographer was announced at Wedding Industry Awards. Ever since I entered the business these have always stood out as one of the main wedding photography awards as the process relies heavily on actual client feedback – only the couples I’ve worked with in the previous 12 months can vote. I was really pleased to have made it to the stage of the regional finals for the third year running. The standard of wedding photographers I was up against was insanely high though (one of the joys of living in the most densely populated part of the UK!) and as I looked down the list of fellow finalists there was so much talent in the mix (and lots of good friends of mine!)

Anyway I will cut to the chase… alas I didn’t win (congratulations to Martin Beddall who took the title). Whilst I did have an, ever so brief, moment of disappointment (it’s OK to dream right and aim high!) as soon as I got to read the feedback from my 2015 couples I felt like I had won inside and I reminded myself I had at least got to the final shortlist.

I was totally blown away, and almost shed a tear, going through all the comments that had been submitted. It was so so encouraging and put a massive smile on my face. Being a wedding photographer can be a lonely business sometimes – you quietly plug away, putting everything into every wedding you go to and to have it recognised means so much. Every couple I work with mean so much to me and all the kind words made me feel all warm and fuzzy! (It was like reading your school report… I did duly send it on to my parents like old times!)

So I must conclude this by saying a huge thank you again to all my couples – not just for having me capture their wedding day – but for taking the time to vote for me. The feedback form is quite long and the fact that so many took the time to complete it means a lot. I’m more determined than ever now to kick on and I’m ready to give 150% to every wedding that I have ahead of me! Onwards and upwards!

There were lots of lovely comments I could add here but here a few to give you a taste:

Darren & Kerry
“At the start of our wedding day Jonny was our photographer, by the end of our wedding day he was a friend who happened to be taking photographs at our wedding. He made us feel at total ease with the day. I have never know someone go about their work in such an upbeat friendly and approachable manner. Our pre-wedding consultation was clear and concise, allowing us to understand the flow of the day, what we wanted and how Jonny would work. The photos produced were exactly what we wanted.”

Jenna & Alex
“As soon as I spoke to Jonny i knew he had to be our photographer. I immediately trusted him and it ended up feeling like chatting to a friend we’d known for ages! His vision, professionalism, skill & dedication are boundless, not to mention his cheeky infectious charm, ability to put everyone at ease and his genuine enthusiasm for getting the very best photographs to capture all his couple’s weddings. On the day he was fabulous and worked his socks off. We LOVE our photos & we adore Jonny!!”

Prachi & Seth
“Jonny was quite simply amazing. He was almost invisible on the day, but the photos he captured really made me feel like her was everywhere. With over 200 guests, and a chaotic Indian wedding with lots of people and chaos he captured the feeling and emotions of the day really well, while making everyone feel at ease. He also captured all key people in a family of 50 people alone – we were really impressed I had a few novel ideas for photos, and Jonny took them on and made them work with gusto.”

Paula & Mat
“Jonny MP is such an amazing wedding photographer, and for many many reasons – not only does he take the time to understand what kind of photos you want for your big day, he also has so many creative ideas for those extra special wow shots. He has huge passion and energy from when you first meet him to discuss the day and then throughout the day itself. And whilst doing this he’s discrete and feels like part of the family remembering everyone’s name even though he’s only met them on the day.”

Morgan & Tyler

“We are from the United States and booked Jonny for our destination wedding in Slovenia. We first met him in person the night before the wedding and immediately felt like we had known him ages. People underestimate how important it is to find a photographer who will make them feel at ease. Jonny understands not only what it takes to be a great photographer, but also how to make the bride and groom feel comfortable on their big day. I would book him again in a heartbeat and recommend him to anyone.
wedding-photographer-surrey-145

Kerttu & David
“Jonny was fantastic from start to finish. He is diligent about making sure the day is perfect. He had boundless energy running around the venue to make sure he captured absolutely everything! He doesn’t take ’posed’ photos, but captures the sweet moments of looks and laughter. All of our guests have commented on how fantastic the photos are, and also what a great guy Jonny was, putting everyone at ease. Photos is all we have now… and I am so happy we chose Jonny to make sure they’re perfect!”

wedding-photographer-surrey-115

Jessica & Chris
“Jonny MP is like no other wedding photographer I have ever seen.. Jonny really knows how to capture the moment, each photo tells a story and each photo is so unique. I love Jonny’s enthusiasm and pure passion for what he does and that shows in his photos. Jonny really pays attention to detail and that shows in his work. Jonny has to be one of the loveliest people we have met. We cannot thank Jonny enough for capturing our special day. Beautiful photos that we will cherish forever.”

“Jonny was absolutely fantastic both before, during and after the day! He made sure he got to know Leigh and I so he could understand what we wanted and make suggestions which were always bang on! Our guests loved him and we’ve had so many comments about how nice he was and how he made everyone feel at ease. He also managed to get the first batch of photos up on Facebook the next day so we could share with friends and family. Best photographer (and quite frankly nicest person) ever!!!”

Laura & Andrew

“We can’t speak highly enough of Jonny and the service he provided. Full of advice beforehand, immaculately turned out on the day and so friendly to all of our guests. We received many compliments about how nice, patient and approachable he was. Jonny is extremely competent – we’re absolutely delighted by the photos themselves. He sent a preview of 20 within 2 days and the full set by the end of the week! His website and presentation materials are very professional and I would recommend him 100%”

Naomi & Tom

“I’ve only been married once but I’ve been to a lot of weddings and Jonny is the real deal. Lots of photographers talk about your ’journey’ and your ’story’ but end up taking the same formulaic, set pictures with no imagination. Jonny has an empathy and consideration that shine through in his photographs. He is not just a technically gifted photographer but has a skill that I don’t think can be taught or learned. He really sees people.”

Edward & Alexis
“It felt like Jonny was not only the photographer on the day but was part of the family and friends. He smiled the whole day and made everyone feel very comfortable. We had a Jewish wedding and he captured each moment of the ceremony and the spirt of the event. The party was loud, fast moving and colourful and the photographs perfectly show this. We will look back on these photos for years to come and be transported back to the moment.

Karen & Liam
“On such a nerve wracking day, Jonny arrived as a friendly and calm face and quickly felt like everybody’s friend. He somehow knew everybody’s name and was able to connect with absolutely everyone. We heard lots of comments on the day and afterwards about how professional and friendly Jonny was. Our pictures was more than we could have wanted and Jonny got every one of our guests in a shot (not sure how as I hardly saw him!).”

Amy & Blue
“I manage a Wedding venue in Suffolk and I meet a lot of photographers, Jonny is by far the best that I have seen. He really has the whole package from the detailed discussions before your day on exactly what you want and to know the important people in your day, his character is funny, charming and relaxing(people underestimate how important is), he leaves such a presence wherever he goes yet he blends into your day not even knowing he is there. Memories fade but his photos will last a lifetime!”

Emma & Jonny
“I literally cannot fault him. I can’t give him any less than 10 stars for all of the above categories! Jonny went over and above, paying attention to detail, knew exactly what we wanted, didn’t miss a thing and was incredibly friendly and fun yet without being in any way intrusive. And we now have an amazing set of wedding photos! I would recommend him to anyone.”

Henry & Jenny
“More than happy to give Jonny full marks – if there was 10+ we would have selected it. The best evidence to support our strongly positive sentiment is: we tried to book Jonny immediately after for another wedding next year (not us again! sister-in-law) and the number of guests who specifically mentioned the professionalism on the day (awareness of key individuals, not dominating any time or space, friendly approach, smart) and his outstanding photos. Jonny captured all the moments but also mood.”

Anja & Scott
“Jonny has the fantastic ability to capture the tiniest of moments that allude most without a keen eye. His reportage style lets you relive every moment of the day, the ones you remembered, the ones you missed, and the ones that show the true personalities of each of your guests. We didn’t want staged traditional photos, or wedding cliches. Jenny’s soft, warm style captured the day just as we wanted it. He’s so easy to get on with, and can be a true ninja hiding in the wings when you need him to.”
