Best Wedding Photography 2016

Well, here I am. Five years after taking my first ever wedding photos at a friends wedding I’m posting my first ever ‘best of’ review! It’s a pretty big moment for me as during the whirlwind of the last three years of shooting full time, it’s the first occasion I’ve actually stopped to gather my […]

Jarek Lepak - Incredible photography skills mate! Stunning work.

Aga Tomaszek - It’s funny, I’m looking at this STELLAR set of images (on the phone, as instructed…) and feel simply chuffed to bits that I got to know you and build this weird, photography/editing orientated friendship over the last year. You win awards yet remain the humblest person in the industry, impress with consistency yet often question yourself, know your shit so well yet always listen to other people’s opinion (even mine!) and actually take it on board. Big, virtual, sisterly love to you man!

You have included everything in the above set, the clever, the familiar, the epic and the common, the funny and the emotional, the abundance of colour and the moody monochrome, the airy and the dark.

I wish for your 2017 to be full of good news in both work & private life and if I may, I really hope we’ll get to photograph a wedding together too! xx

Michael Jackson - Oh mate. Funny, creative, well edited, incredibly emotional. This collection has the lot. Absolutely world class, congratulations!

Aaron - 5th image in… *WOW*
Unreal dude, what an incrediable diverse amazing set of images! You’re one talented fella!!!

Jordanna Marston - Absolutely fan-bloody-tastic Alex. Very very enjoyable to look through. You are very good…and a very nice chap so props to you! 🙂 x

Sam Docker - MATE!!!!! Well, better late than never ay?!!! Joking aside, this is just a marvellous round-up, you don’t give yourself anywhere near as much credit as you should, this is as good as any of your peers. BIG FULL STOP!!!!

It has it all, I laughed, felt the emotion, got landscape envy, loved the framing and compositions, and marvelled at your clean editing and colours. Take a bow, and then kick on in 2017 by showing and shouting about your work a little more please!!

Voyteck - dude these are so good! love the energy and happiness in your photos!

Rob - Mate these are full of so much fun and emotion!!! Well done dude, I hope 2017 is event better!!!!

Toby - Absolutely amazing Alex! You are the humblest photographer in the land. These images have everything! Love, love, love!!

David Stubbs - Amazing images Alex, really enjoyed looking though. All the bets for 2017.

Josie & Pete | Pine Cliffs Destination Wedding, Portugal

I first met Josie and Pete whilst shooting her sister’s wedding at the wonderful Villa Balbianello on Lake Como. It was such a beautiful wedding with the most fun and lovely people you could wish to spend a day with, so when Josie asked whether I might be free to photograph her Pine Cliffs Destination Wedding […]

Iscoyd Park Wedding – Shropshire – Rachel & Tim

Rachel and Tim’s wedding is particularly dear to my heart. I’d like to think that one of the things I appreciate an awful lot at weddings is the importance of family. My reasons – well, I’m not only a son but also a brother, a husband and, in the last three years, a father; and as a result of that my heart strings […]

Oxford Engagement Photographer | Lucy & AJ

“Hi Alex, These look amazing. Thank you so much.” I love pre wedding shoots. They often give me time to shoot at a much slower pace than I’m afforded at weddings, where often the best light for portraits passes whilst other things are happening and the allocated portrait time is sometimes much tighter than is ideal – as little […]

James - Lovely work Alex, especially love the last five images in your blog post! The four black & whites are so good and suits the mood of the photographs.

Great job

Robin Horton - A well written intro to a lovely group of images Alex, you used the superb light to its fullest advantage.

Kim - Not sure why I’ve only just seen these now Alex but lovely lovely work! I especially like the last B&W frame and the one in the netting area – feel like I should probably know the technical description for this location but ‘netting area’ will do! Good good stuff!

Bristol Zoo Wedding | Samantha & Steve

Wow! What to say about Samantha and Steve’s wedding day on Saturday… well, I suppose it was all a pretty standard affair with all of the things you’d expect at a wedding really. Things like giant scorpions, flamingos and lions, that kind of thing! Yes folks – I did say lions! There’s absolutely nothing standard about Sam and Steve either. Two incredibly warm […]
