A photographer is only as good as his last review and I’m pleased to say that I’ve had some lovely ones. Feedback from happy clients really is what drives me and reminds me why I do this for a living. Some are so nice that they have actually made me well up once or twice! You can read a selection here. In addition, I’ve been the recipient of several prestigious awards which I’m very proud of. In particular, the MPA (Master Photographers Association) Wedding Day & Celebration winner for 2016/2017 and the WPPI (the Wedding Photography Association’s) Silver Distinction Award in 2015 and also over 50 other awards over the past decade. But sometimes a good recommendation speaks as loudly as a formal honour and I am delighted that the following premium venues endorse me as one of their recommended and established photography sources:
Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons
I am honoured to be one of a very small select number of photographers to be recommended by Le Manoir. Raymond Blanc’s 12th Century manor house is a magnificent location to host your wedding ceremony, providing a sublime venue for you and your guests to enjoy an unforgettable day. Nestled at the heart of Le Manoir, with its own stunning conservatory and opening up onto a private walled garden within the oldest part of the house, La Belle Époque dining room can entertain up to 50 guests.
Stoke Park Club
I have had the pleasure of being one of Stoke Park Club’s preferred photographers for several years now. A pristine jewel of white stone set amidst 300 sweeping acres of historic parkland and exquisite gardens, Stoke Park’s Palladian Mansion provides a truly breath-taking setting for your wedding reception or marriage ceremony. Every aspect of the 200 year old mansion a masterpiece of luxurious elegance. A dedicated wedding co-ordinator, along with Stoke Park’s award winning Chef, Chris Wheeler, will ensure that you receive seamless service, from your initial enquiry to the unforgettable day itself.

I love working all through the year as one of Hedsor’s recommended photographers. Brides Magazine voted Hedsor House as the No.1 wedding venue in Buckinghamshire, and when you visit, you will certainly see why. Hedsor House is one of the UK’s most extraordinary and spectacular exclusive use venues. Perched high above the River Thames and set in over 100 acres of historic parkland, Hedsor House has proved to be simply the perfect wedding venue for civil ceremonies, blessings and receptions.

Eynsham Hall, built in the 1700’s is a grand Grade II listed country mansion approached down a sweeping drive and set in 3000 acres of beautiful cotswold countryside. The house itself has been refurbished with some elegant modern touches whilst the grandeur and spectacle remain – think Downton Abbey following a Kelly Hoppen makeover!

St Hugh’s is a perfect venue for wedding receptions and they are always honoured to welcome brides, grooms, and their families and friends to their beautiful Oxford College. They can host your reception dinner in their traditional Dining Hall or Mordan Hall. Their more modern Maplethorpe Hall and their Wordsworth Tea Room are particularly lovely venues during warmer weather as they both open directly onto the gardens. Their main terrace is perfect for drinks receptions and you are welcome to use their extensive gardens for photographs.
