Editorial Photography in Rutland and Stamford

I have been busy doing editorial work in Rutland, Stamford and Peterborough for Local Living magazines. Shooting editorial can be extremely varied – I am constantly on the go and keep discovering new places. One great discovery for shopping and eating in Leicestershire is Wistow Village (http://www.wistow.com/). Another one is a small goat farm – Ganders Goats who produce their own ice cream and soaps! (http://gandersgoat.com/), met one of Oakham’s PCs – Joe Lloyd and visited three great bakeries: Rutland Cake company in Oakham Enterprise Park (http://rutlandcakes.co.uk/), Hambleton Bakery in Exton (http://www.hambletonbakery.co.uk/) and Baines Bakery in Uppingham (http://www.bainesbakery.co.uk/home-page). Here are some of my favourite shots..

Rutland Sinfonia in concert

Rutland’s highly respected amateur symphony orchestra, founded in 1976, is celebrating it’s 40th Season since Barry Collett founded the Sinfonia. I photographed the orchestra during rehearsals and evening performance this weekend at Oakham Chapel. If you get a chance, don’t miss them!

Wedding photography

I have just been asked to choose some of my favourite 2016 wedding photos for a wedding supplement in Rutland Living. I flicked through my 2016 galleries and found it so hard to choose. Each wedding I shot was special in it’s own way – I travelled to some amazing locations, met so many lovely people. Here is a very small selections of shots I love from my 2016 weddings. Shot at Normanton Church on Rutland Water, Stamford Town Hall, The William Cecil, Hambleton Hall, Greetham Valley, Rockingham Castle, Uppingham School and more..

Katie & Zsolt’s wedding at Exton Church and Greetham Valley in Rutland

Katie and Zsolt married at Exton Church followed by a reception in Greetham Valley. A beautiful couple, perfect sunshine and lots of happy guests made this such a fun day to shoot. Katie, who is a talented sculptor with her own unique style, was responsible for all the wedding decorations – literally! Her beautiful creations (which you can find in Itch Gallery in Oakham) made the reception room look absolutely stunning and so personal.

Dominique & William’s wedding in Uppingham School, Rutland

Dom and William’s wedding in Uppingham School was an absolutely brilliant day! It was a a big event with around 150 guests so the venue was a perfect choice (and it was the bride’s school!). The ceremony was held at Uppingham School chapel followed by drinks reception and dinner at the adjacent halls. I loved the long tables and guests carving the meat. Dom and William ended up with almost 1,000 photos – so this is just a very small selection..
