Gretna Green, Scotland

A place of irregular marriages

The small town of Gretna Green, which lies alongside the M6/A74M on the border between Scotland and England, is one of the most popular wedding destinations in the world.

The geographic location of a website

Most websites are housed in so-called server farms, where their physical location is only important in as far as their protection and reliability is concerned. It’s quite possible to have a web server in the shed at the bottom of your garden, but I wouldn’t recommend it. A reliable hosting company with a good reputation, […]

With surprising alacrity, it’s time to flick back through my digital album as we approach the end of 2013, and the end of another year behind the camera. Here are a few highlights; a larger set is on Flickr. My favourite memory of 2013, embodied in the lead photo of this blog post (above)? Visiting […]

Wedding at Kulturhof Schloss Köniz

I’ve added some new photographs to my online wedding photography portfolio, from a ceremony and party in October. It was a wonderful afternoon and evening for the couple and the location, at the Kulturhof Schloss Köniz near Bern, helped me to produce some wonderful shots. Two of my favourite photos from the event are the […]

My basic Lightroom workflow

Adobe Lightroom is a boon to the photographer. With the introduction of intelligent repair tools, it has now entirely replaced Photoshop for me, and I can not only tweak photos but also re-edit them to quite a level of detail. One of the great features of Lightroom is the ability to save a group of […]

Wedding portfolio update

I’ve been prompted recently to update my wedding portfolio; in particular since I’ve begun using Flickr as an extension to the image archive for this website. I’ve added three new groups of photos over the last couple of days: from Interlaken in 2011… …from Lindau in summer 2012… …and from Zurich in December 2012.

Thank heavens for digital tone mapping

You may recall that I wrote about HDR technique some time ago, and a technique I employed at a wedding last weekend reminded me to write about the alternative: Tone Mapping and Zone System exposure.

Wedding photography for fun

I gain a lot of pleasure through photographing the most important day of a couple’s life, and have spent a lot of time honing my skills to make sure that my subjects don’t just get a standard set of photos, but a unique visual documentary of the day through special moments.

Wedding moment

A touching and unusual alternative to the wedding book; guests at a German-Swiss wedding present the couple with flowers and individual written notes of goodwill.

The Royal Wedding on a budget

The crushing disappointment of the new microsite for the British Royal Wedding is a shameful excuse of a website, which could so easily have been so much better.

Brent and Marta’s wedding

Starting with a long journey to the Aeolian Islands and pre-wedding drinks on a tempestuously windy hotel terrace, Jo and I had a great time at my oldest friend Brent’s wedding to his Italian sweetheart, Marta.

Wedding trip part 2: Reims to the Channel Tunnel

More entries in this series can be found here. After a good night’s sleep in Reims, we headed onward towards our appointment with the cross-Channel tunnel at a rate of knots, passing through the first toll booth of the day as we headed on through northern France towards Calais. We made pretty good time as […]

Wedding trip part 1: Switzerland to Reims

I love travelling back and forth between Britain and Switzerland. Although it’s a long way, the journey is made pretty easy by the fact that most of the long haul is through France, where undulating countryside and unfamiliar landscape provides a level of interest and flat, straight, empty motorways make a journey with cruise control […]

I’m getting married today!

Or, in other words, T zero! It’s been a long and eventful journey up from Switzerland to Scotland, though we’ve had only a couple of minor hiccups and no real problems. I’ve been keeping a diary as we’ve been travelling but as you can imagine, I’ve more important things to think about today! I’ll post […]
