“Alex, we have just sat down to watch the slideshow, I’m a bit speechless at the moment. They are incredible, we have both been in absolute tears. We can’t thank you enough for the amazing job you have done, we are so delighted and you have captured the day wonderfully. You tell the story so well, we couldn’t have wished for better photos or photographer. Thank you so much.”


When I received the above text from Mary, I was totally overjoyed. Weddings are such a wonderful occasion and I can’t help but be drawn into all the emotion experienced by everyone involved – and I hope it shows in the photos I take. It might sound a bit strange but I’ll look back on my photos afterwards and all these happy feelings well up inside! I just feel that it’s awesome to be part of such a special day in the lives of two people, their families and friends. And it was an absolute honour to be able to capture these photographs for Mary and Darren.

It’s always great to travel down to London for a wedding, and I love shooting at new venues too. This was my first wedding at Pembroke Lodge and I hope it’s not the last! Any venue with surroundings as beautiful as the lodge has is good in my book! It’s a real treasure of tranquility tucked away in the City. After the ceremony at St Mary’s College, we stopped for a few quick portraits on Richmond Hill before heading to the Lodge for the reception and to celebrate! And celebrate they did! It’s a good indicator that a fun evening lies in store when a bride is Irish and there’s a fiddle player booked for the evening! There really is nothing like a live band in terms of creating atmosphere and energy and ‘The Cheesecake Band’ did just that, ensuring everybody had a fantastic time! I only just made it out of the park myself two minutes before the gates were locked for the night!

Awesome people, awesome wedding. I loved every second.
