On 25th September, I headed down to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) on the Albert Embankment, London to photograph World Maritime Day 2014. The IMO Secretary General Mr Koji Sekimizu greeted a host of dignitaries and diplomats.
On 6th September, I headed down to South London to photograph Debi & Steve’s wedding at St Stephen’s Church in Dulwich and the Bromley Court Hotel.
It was a lovely day in beautiful surroundings. St Stephen’s feels like a beautiful little country church even though it’s hidden away just off the hectic rush of the south circular.
The Gardens of the Bromley Court Hotel looked amazing, again a little touch of countryside in the middle of the city, with the beautiful flowers matching Debi’s dress.
On 30th August I was at The Church of our Lady in St John’s Wood to photograph Cat & Paul’s Wedding.
We went to Primrose Hill to do the Bride & Groom shots and found the tree that Paul had carved their initials in and which was also where Cat proposed during the leap year of 2012. We got some great shots from the top of the hill looking down on a magnificent view of the capitals landmarks.
Then it was on to the reception at the Marriot, Regents Park, with an awesome ‘Pulp Fiction’ inspired first dance.
On 16th August I was in Upper Holloway at St John’s Church and The Grand Palace Banqueting Suite in Wood Green for the Wedding of Eunice & Roland.
It was a fantastically musical wedding from the Minister playing the bongos to the couple of soloing singers at the reception.
On the second of August I photographed Danielle & Ben’s Wedding at The Montague on the Gardens. A boutique little ceremony and reception of about forty guests in the beautifully bright and light setting of the Montague’s conservatories.
Max was only a few days old when I headed down to Tooting to photograph him. He was very well behaved, a bit sleepy, but peaceful and relaxed and seemed to enjoy his first photoshoot.
Very occasionally, I get to attend a wedding as a guest, rather than as a photographer.
This was one of the rare occasions, so just a few shots of the amazing Claire, Mark and guests in the beautiful Welsh Countryside of Amlwch, Anglesey.
In May I had a week in Fez, where the medieval old town feels like nothing has changed in thousands of years. From Camel Butchers to watching your choice of chicken be slaughtered for your dinner it’s an amazing explosion of smells, sights and sounds.
On the 28th April, I attended the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) headquarters on Albert Embankment in London to photograph the 25th Anniversary of IMLI, the International Maritime Law Institute.
IMLI, based in Malta, was established by IMO as an international centre for the training of maritime law specialists.
Speakers at the event included
